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's lecture will lecture on soil remediation principles, technologies
Terry Obal is the Director of Scientific Services and Development at
Maxxam Analytics. Terry's mandate includes the development and validation of new
methods and processes at Maxxam, directing Environmental Research and Development
activities, and providing technical representation and consultative support to
internal and external Maxxam clients. Terry has over 25 years of experience in
analytical chemistry, laboratory management and environmental chemical consulting.
He holds B.Sc., M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in chemistry. He is an Ontario Chartered
Chemist (C.Chem.) and currently the President of the Association of the Chemical
Profession of Ontario (ACPO). Dr. Obal
will lecture on Environmental Forensics and Analytical Chemistry Requirements.
David Jewett is a hydrogeologist with over 25+ years of site characterization
and subsurface remediation experience in government, industry, and academia. Dr.
Jewett is the Director of the U.S.
EPA's National Risk Management Research Laboratory, Ground Water and Ecosystems
Restoration Division located in Ada, Oklahoma. Dr. Jewett leads a team of
geochemists, environmental scientists, environmental engineers, hydrogeologists,
microbiologists, and soil scientists conducting research and providing technical
support related to site characterization and remedial technology development,
evaluation, and implementation at hazardous waste sites in order to protect and
restore ground water, surface water, and ecosystem resources. His research interests
include site characterization techniques, contaminant fate and transport, ground
water flow and solute transport modeling, and ground water/surface water interactions.
Dr. Jewett was a hydrologist specializing in applied research and technical support
and the former Director of the U.S. EPA's Center for Subsurface Modeling Support
before accepting the responsibilities as Chief of the Subsurface Remediation Branch.
Dr. Jewett has a B.S. in geology from Syracuse University, a M.S in geology from
The Wichita State University, and a Ph.D. in hydrology from the Department of
Hydrology and Water Resources at The University of Arizona. Prior to joining the
U.S. EPA, Dr. Jewett was on the faculty of the Department of Geology at Indiana
University Purdue University Indianapolis. He also has several years experience
as a hydrogeologist and project manager in the environmental remediation industry.
David Jewett 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 Presidet with GHD. Mr. Daniel manages
GHDs surface water and environmental design groups and surface water/sediment
modeling group. Mr. Daniel has over 24 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.
