Meeting the Challenges of Groundwater in Fractured Rock

Burlington , VT
September 12-13, 2022

Fractured rock (including karst) has proven to be the most challenging geologic environment to characterize and remediate. To meet these challenges, environmental science has progressed significantly in this realm in recent years. New tools and technologies provide numerous options that groundwater professionals can employ to characterize even the most challenging sites for remediation and sustainable water supply. This periodic (every 2 to 3 years) conference has become the leading forum bringing together a broad spectrum of experts to discuss the most effective approaches for a range of problems in these challenging settings.

Abstracts addressing the following topic areas are welcomed:

  • Improving Conceptual Site Models
  • PFAS and Uptick in Bedrock Remediation
  • Emerging Technologies and Techniques (Drone Surveys/Photogrammetry)
  • Green and Sustainable Remediation
  • Managed Aquifer Recharge in Fractured Rock Environments
  • Geophysical Investigative Techniques
  • Utilization of Groundwater Tracers
  • Site closure success stories
  • State of current research efforts
