The National Ground Water Association (NGWA) is hosting its “Petroleum Hydrocarbons and Organic Chemicals in Ground Water: Prevention, Detection, and Remediation Conference” November 2-3 in Costa Mesa, California.
NGWA has held this conference for more than 20 years, training groundwater professionals on how to protect groundwater from contamination, as well as how to clean up contaminated groundwater from spills and leaks. Through the years, in addition to petroleum hydrocarbons, the conference has expanded to cover many types of organic compounds.
This year’s conference topics include:
• Indoor air and vapor intrusion
• Regulatory issues
• Oil shale exploration and development
• The impact of gasohol and ethanol on hydrocarbons in groundwater
• Prevention of groundwater contamination
• Site characterization and monitoring
• Chlorinated solvents
• Natural attenuation processes
• Clean-up goals and site closures
• Working with stakeholders.
