Tools for Evaluating and Optimizing Groundwater Monitoring Networks
Internet-based seminar
Hosted by U.S. EPA Technology Innovation and Field Services Division

This seminar provides state, tribal, and federal regulators with information about new methods of optimizing groundwater monitoring programs. Responsible parties, federal facility cleanup managers, and EPA have used LTMO methods at more than 100 sites nationwide and are likely to use them at more sites in the future. These methods support decision-making regarding optimal location and frequency of groundwater monitoring and support changes to existing monitoring networks. The seminar defines and describes long-term monitoring optimization and how it can be used to demonstrate progress toward remedial goals. In addition, speakers present information on the appropriate time for LTMO analysis, the types of data usually included in LTMO, qualitative and quantitative methods of long-term monitoring optimization, how to review long-term monitoring plans, and major obstacles to LTMO. Speakers will present a case study illustrating LTMO topics presented. This seminar is presented jointly by the U.S. EPA Office of Superfund Remediation and Technology Innovation (OSRTI) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Speakers will be Dr. Mindy Vanderford, GSI Environmental, Inc. and Dave Becker, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, both noted experts in long-term groundwater optimization. The seminar will be hosted and moderated by Kathy Yager, U.S. EPA/ OSRTI. For general information contact Jean Balent by telephone at 202-566-0832
