Approaches To Resolving Differences In Professional Judgment In Site Remediation
7:30 a.m. - 1 p.m.
University Hall - Montclair State University
30 Normal Avenue, Montclair, NJ
Given the complexity of cleanups, the existence of comingled plumes, land use issues, and the use of guidance documents, etc., a LSRP’s decision on remedial approaches may be challenged or questioned by the public, a peer, a responsible party, or a government agency.  Establishing a process on how to resolve or address these differences is critical to the success of SRRA. This workshop is intended to give the licensed site remediation professional (LSRP), the attorney, the engineer, the environmental consultant and the responsible party, an overview of the various decision points with a cleanup and possible approaches to resolving differences. Registration Fee Includes Networking Continental Breakfast & Buffet Lunch as well as Free Parking! For more information and to register, visit

Groundwater in Fractured Bedrock
9 a,m, - 4:30 p.m. 
Trayes Hall - Douglass Campus Center
100 George St, New Brunswick, NJ 08901
This one-day course focuses on practical aspects of groundwater in the fractured sedimentary bedrock of the Newark Group (Brunswick Aquifer), where thousands of sites have been impacted by industrial contaminants. Remedial activities at such sites are usually impaired by oversimplified notions regarding groundwater flow and contaminant migration, as well as by the use of inadequate hydrogeologic characterization methods. The course is intended for geologists, hydrogeologists, environmental professionals, licensed site remediation professionals (LSRPs), remediation engineers, regulators, and corporate site managers responsible for the investigation and remediation of complex bedrock sites. Participants will have an opportunity to improve their understanding of the hydrogeologic framework best used to represent sedimentary bedrock sites. More information:
