In-Situ Soil Remeditation
• Monday, April 21st Dinner Meeting - Many polluted locations are in urban areas, which may not allow the pollution to be excavated. In other cases, although it is possible that the core can be excavated, the residual plume may be so big, that excavation is not an option. For this, there is the option of applying in-situ soil remediation.
In April, Michael Wagner, P.E., Project Manager at ERM (Environmental Resources Management) and local section Officer, will bring us uptodate on the latest remediation technologies for in-situ cleaning of soil contamination.
