Mike Hawthorne, one of the co-authors of the ASTM Guide on Estimating LNAPL Transmissivity, and a leading expert on LNAPL science, has been invited to provide a training session on the theory and practical application of LNAPL transmissivity at the upcoming ASTM Workshop on Estimating LNAPL Transmissivity, sponsored by ASTM Committee E50.04 on Environmental Assessment, Risk Management, and Corrective Action.
LNAPL transmissivity is being increasingly recognized as the preferred metric for use at sites impacted with LNAPL to satisfy the “maximum extent practicable” recovery criteria, in lieu of measured/apparent LNAPL thickness in wells. The objective of this workshop is to provide a basic understanding of how LNAPL transmissivity can be estimated, and how to use estimated values to better understand the practical limits for hydraulic recovery. This information can then be used to make effective decisions regarding LNAPL assessment, management, and remediation.
The workshop will be held Thursday, January 30, 2014, at the Hyatt Regency hotel, located in Houston, Texas. If you would like to participate, you can register via the following link:
