Evaluating the Fate and Transport of Contaminants in Groundwater in the EnvironmentEngineers and Geoscientists BC
This session will cover how potential and/or known contaminant sources are characterized, how to determine the contaminant specific mobility in the environment based on inherent physical and chemical properties, their release mechanism to the environment, and ultimately their migration pathway and fate in the environment. The session will emphasize the mechanisms of contaminant transport in the subsurface and how to qualitatively and quantitatively predict contaminant migration towards potential sensitive receiving environments. The benefit and use of conceptual site models will be presented; as well as, transport modelling techniques. This session should allow individuals to understand how to undertake a fate and transport assessment, minimum data that should be collected, and methods used to quantify contaminant transport towards a receiving environment. This topic will interest those who review fate and transport assessments conducted by consultants such as Government Regulators and Industry project managers. It will also be of interest to hydrogeologists and risk assessors who are carrying out fate and transport assessments on their projects.
