Borehole and Well Decommissioning: Understanding Grouting for Reliable Sealing
2 p.m. - Eastern Time
90- minute webinar, approved for MA LSP
Presenter Chris Mathewson, PhD, PG,
Regents Professor at Texas A&M
Borehole and well sealing is a critical step in reducing risk of contaminant movement through low-permeability formations, yet it is often taken for granted and sometimes even short cut leading to unforeseen consequences.  This 90-minute webinar will not only contrast popular grout procedures but will also address the grout mixing comparisons between using bentonite vs. cement ratios. It provides an overview and context of the contrasting objectives between water well and monitoring well installation.  Participants will also learn what to observe and document to ensure grout specifications are met. Plus, learn how to ensure grout density is achieved and considerations for the timing and methods of pumping and QA/QC methods. Fee: $299 per computer site. Register

Other dates: Sep. 22, Oct. 6,13,20,27

Recycling has evolved from something that we do just because it is environmentally sound to something that has substantial economic and sustainability benefits as well.  Through hands-on activities and field visits to solid waste and recycling facilities across the state, this Rutgers University continuing-education course will show you how recycling can become “asset management” and a vital part of your organization’s operations.  You will learn how to perform a waste audit, understand recycling markets, increase participation rates, put efficiency to work for you and much, much more!  For fees, registration and other information, contact Carol Broccoli at 732-932-9271 - Extension 618
