Rapid Design and Analysis of Groundwater Remediation Systems *New Course*
8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
University Human Resources Training Center
27 Road 1, Piscataway, NJ 08854
This new one-day, "hands-on" computer workshop will appeal to LSRPs planning groundwater remedies and to engineers and environmental professionals who need an easy "non-modeling" way to calculate groundwater flow and aquifer response for a variety of common engineered systems, including extraction wells, collector trenches, slurry or sheet pile walls, permeable reactive barriers, and funnel and gate remedies. Attendees will receive instruction, and participate in a series of hands-on exercises, in which they will evaluate aquifer draw down; optimize pumping well extraction rates; determine groundwater flow paths, velocities, and residence times; estimate system capture zone extent; create graphics with groundwater contours and path lines; and examine other aspects that should be considered when designing, evaluating and optimizing groundwater remediation systems. Attendees will be introduced to a set of "calculators" that, with simplified site conditions, can serve as a screening tool to produce preliminary remediation designs. More information here


December 3-5, 2014
HEC-RAS: An Intensive 3-Day Workshop
8:30 a.m. - 3:45 p.m.
Cook Campus Center, New Brunswick, NJ
Rutgers University
There's no question that HEC-RAS is an incredibly powerful tool but it's also no secret that it can be overwhelming, challenging and, in the hands of an inexperienced user, the end result could be numerical instability and severely flawed analyses. Can you afford that outcome on your projects? To make sense of this program, we've recruited Joe Skupien, one of the most highly rated instructors in hydrology and hydraulics, to teach this 3-day hands-on training class. In this intensive three-day workshop, led by Joseph Skupien (an expert with more than 25 years of NJ stormwater management experience), you will get a comprehensive overview of the steady flow capabilities of the current version (V4.1) of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Hydrologic Engineering Center River Analysis System program (HEC-RAS). More information here

Alliance for NJ Environmental Education  
30th Annual ANJEE Conference
The Conference Center at Mercer
1200 Old Trenton Road
West Windsor, NJ 08550
ANJEE 3.0: E-STEM ~ Indoors and Out
Making connections between STEM education and the natural world Join environmental educators of every description and discipline from across New Jersey and beyond to learn and share innovative ways to connect students of all ages with the natural world – and help them be better equipped to defend it. This year, conference presentations and workshops investigate ways that Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) can be integrated with environmental education to help us better understand our planet and its systems, and explore how STEM subjects can be utilized in the quest for a truly sustainable future. The conference is an invaluable professional development opportunity for any and all educators. Presentations and workshops will feature EE in elementary, secondary, higher and adult education, green school practices and model programs, natural history interpretation, community-based environmental projects, issue-based outreach and more. Plus, the 2-day conference is a lot of FUN! Early Bird registration rates are available through December 24. Registration closes January 15.
