Gareth Owen
is the President of GOwen Environmental Limited and has spent the last 28 years training other environmental professionals in the discipline of contaminated and hazardous waste site management. Mr. Owen has managed over 600 contaminated sites including site and risk assessments, remedial plan development and expedited site closures for sites contaminated with hydrocarbons, chlorinated solvents, heavy metals, and radioactive waste. He has worked on and provided technical and/or managerial support to clients on over 3,700 sites worldwide. He has managed and provided program and project support on contaminated site investigations and remediation for soil, water, and sediment in every jurisdiction and at every level of government in the provinces and territories of Canada, and advised private and public sector clients on similar issues worldwide. He has worked with and instructed most regulatory agencies in Canada responsible for contaminated and hazardous waste site management.

His decision to no longer participate in the investigation or the remediation of contaminated sites as a consultant or contractor, ensures the provision of sound and unbiased technical and managerial support to all his clients. It also ensures no conflict of interest with any environmental consulting or contracting firm providing contaminated site management services. Mr. Owen's principal responsibilities have included providing support to government agencies and multinational corporations in managing large and complex environmental programs and projects. His principal experience relates to contaminated site project management and closure as well as environmental program management. Mr. Owen will provide a detailed overview of Contaminated and Hazardous Waste Site Management.

Dr. Ken Howard, University of Toronto, is a certified and chartered hydrogeologist, with broad experience in all aspects of groundwater resource evaluation, management and protection. As Director of the Groundwater Research Group at the University of Toronto, he has worked on numerous applied projects in Canada, U.K., the West Indies, equatorial Africa and Australia. He has published over 50 articles on topics that range from numerical flow modeling and contaminant migration to environmental isotopes and borehole geophysics. Dr. Howard will cover the Principles of Hydrogeology and will provide an overview of scientific principles Monday evening. After attending this lecture, the attendee will have an increased understanding of the physical and chemical processes that determine how contaminants are transported in the subsurface.

Dr. Derek Peak is a professor of Environmental Soil Chemistry at the University of Saskatchewan, where he uses a wide range of laboratory and molecular-scale techniques to probe soil chemical processes. Dr. Peak has been a synchrotron user for 20 years and has served as a member and chair of the Canadian Light Source Users Advisory Committee. His overall research program focuses on using synchrotron-based chemical speciation techniques to determine nutrient and contaminant fate in soils and sediments. Major research themes include understanding the fate and transport processes that control phosphate availability in soils, developing sustainable agricultural development in West Africa, and effectively managing metal and metalloid affected soils produced as a result of natural resource extraction. He will lecture on Soil Chemistry of Hazardous Materials.

George(Bud) Ivey, is the President and Senior Remediation Specialist with Ivey International Inc. He has over twenty five years of environmental assessment and remediation experience, travelled to over 40 countries, and has worked on more than 1,500 projects internationally. His background includes: Organic Chemistry, Geological Engineering, and a Master’s Certificate in Project Management. His education and the school of hard knocks have provided him with a good foundation for assessing and remediating many of today’s environmental challenges. Among some of his more notable accomplishments include; being one of the few ECO-CANADA Nationally Approved Instructors for delivery of professional development courses, holds several International Patents, and has won many environmental awards including: The Globe Award, North American Frost & Sullivan Award, Environmental Business Journal (EBJ) Awards (2), R.F Weston Award, and the MISTIC Award. He continues to conduct applied soil, solid waste, waste water, and groundwater research, and is currently working on several international remediation projects Mr. Ivey will be presenting Environmental Chemistry Made Easy For Site Investigations.

Patrick Delaney, M.A.Sc., P. Eng. is the President of DHI in Canada and is involved in all aspects of DHI's business including consulting services, software sales, technical support and training. Mr. Delaney actively participates as a project management and subject matter expert on projects involving the development and implementation of water models and real-time operational forecasting systems related to integrated water resources management, wastewater and stormwater collection systems, urban and rural flooding, groundwater resoucres management, and climate change. He has more than 20 years of experience in the development and application of water modelling tools and technologies for a variety of disciplines, and he has considerable experience in managing complex, inter-disciplinary technology development and water mangement projects. Mr. Delaney combines his technical expertise with a very practical approach to problem solving and the ability to communicate technical concepts in a clear and understandable language. Mr. Delaney is a recognized expert and is a featured instructor at professional training courses throughout North American and he has advised many clients working on local, regional, national, and international projects. Mr. Delaney will lecture on Practical Model Application for Risk Assessment and Site Remediation. Participants of this lecture will have increased knowledge of model applications, model selection, and model development and evaluation. He will also be conducting the evening workshop on Groundwater Modelling.
