David Reisman, currently a Senior Consultant
and Technical Advisor and the previous Director, Engineering
Technical Support Center, National Risk Management Research
Laboratory, U. S. Environmental Protection Agency. Mr. Reisman
worked for the U. S. Government from 1976-2012 with the National
Park Service (Park Ranger), the National Institute for Occupational
Safety and Health (Information Specialist), and in many positions
with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). He served
for several years as a Temporary Advisor to the World Health
Organization (WHO) in Geneva, Switzerland, authored many environmental
health criteria documents for both EPA and WHO, and published
over 50 peer-reviewed journal articles, many in the area of
remediation and mining influenced water treatment. David holds
a Masters Degree in interdisciplinary environmental sciences
from Miami University, and has completed additional graduate
work in engineering at the University of Cincinnati. For over
15 years, David assisted in the development of risk assessment
guidance for the EPA Office of Research & Development
in the waste, ambient and drinking water and hazardous air
pollutants areas. As Director of the EPA's Engineering Technical
Support Center for almost 15 years, David worked on several
hundred hazardous waste sites, conducted treatability and
pilot technology studies, and assisted EPA regional personnel
and contractors in site characterization, soil remediation,
technology selection and treatability study design. David
is the recipient of many Government awards and has received
several medals for his outstanding work in supporting EPA's
regional personnel. Dr. Reisman will lecture on soil remediation
principles, technologies and techniques.
Pare, P.Geo, is a geologist with Dragun Corporation.
Mr. Pare has 30 years of experience in site assessment and
remediation projects in Canada and the United States related
to contamination in soil, groundwater, surface water, sediments,
and vapours. Mr. Pare utilizes high resolution site characterization
techniques and a wide range of remediation technologies to
help his clients negotiate and achieve regulatory closure.
His experience includes one contentious project that ended
up in a State Supreme Court.
Chekiri, Ph.D., P.Eng., is an environmental
engineer with Dragun Corporation. Dr. Chekiri has more than
30 years of experience in site assessment, remediation, modelling,
permitting and more. Dr. Chekiri manages projects related
to site closure including soil, groundwater, surface water,
sediment, and vapour investigations; feasibility studies,
remediation action plans, and decommissioning. Dr. Chekiri
also co-wrote (with the late Dr. James Dragun) "Elements
in North American Soils, Second Edition." Mr.
Pare and Dr. Chekiri will lecture on groundwater remediation
techniques and strategies through comparisons and case studies
highlighting: Air Sparging; Dynamic Vapour Extraction; Flushing/Stripping;
Source Removal; Bioremediation; Bioslurping; UV/Ozone/Hydrogen
Peroxide Oxidation; Granular Activated Carbon Systems; Air
Strippers; Oxygen Enhancement; Zero-Valent Iron (Funnel-and-Gate)
and Physical and Hydraulic Containment.
Daniel, P. Eng is
a Vice Principal with GHD Limited.
Mr. Daniel manages CRAs surface water and environmental
design groups and surface water/sediment modeling group. Mr.
Daniel has over 20 years of experience in the surface water
and environmental fields. During his career, Mr. Daniel has
focused on the investigation and cost-effective remediation
of sediment projects of varying sizes, including a project in
the central US where over 2 million tonnes of material has been
removed; the Willow Run Creek Site in Michigan which involved
the removal of approximately 370,000 cubic yards of contaminated
sediments and surrounding impacted soil, and a sediment dredging
design project on the Ottawa River which included dredging of
over 225,000 CY of impacted sediment and dewatering using geotubes.
Mr. Daniel is currently managing a major sediment assessment
in West Virginia. Mr. Daniel has presented courses on sediment
management and naturalized restoration in the United States
and Canada. Mr. Daniel will lecture on Sediment Remediation
Technologies and Restoration Approaches.
