  • Audio for "Mining Webinar Series: Assessment and Rehabilitation of Humid Region Mine Sites and Wastes," May 18, 2021

    18/05/2021

    This seminar will review the essential steps and protocols for the assessment and rehabilitation of active and abandoned mining sites in humid regions with examples drawn from the mid-Atlantic USA. In these environments, appropriate stabilization and closure plans must address direct surface revegetation and erosion control along with predicting and controlling adverse water quality discharges. Important site-specific limitations that must be assessed and planned for include (1) avoiding acid-forming materials, (2) minimizing mine soil compaction, (3) ensuring adequate plant moisture supply, and (4) accounting for slope x aspect effects. Due to the net leaching climate, reclamation practitioners must also predict and manage against emission of acid mine/rock drainage in many instances and/or circumneutral high TDS discharges in others. Specific examples will include reclamation of surface coal mines to hayland/pasture or native forests, stabilization and revegetation of acid-forming coal refuse, and return of

  • Audio for "Strategies for Preventing and Managing Harmful Cyanobacteria Blooms," Apr 29, 2021

    29/04/2021

    The Harmful Cyanobacteria Blooms (HCBs) training reviews key information found in the ITRC Guidance Document, Strategies for Preventing and Managing Harmful Cyanobacterial Blooms. Cyanobacteria are microscopic, photosynthetic organisms that occur naturally in all aquatic systems but most often in freshwater systems. Under certain conditions, cyanobacteria can multiply and become very abundant, discoloring the water throughout a water body or accumulating at the surface. These occurrences are known as blooms. Cyanobacteria may produce potent toxins (cyanotoxins) that pose a threat to human health. They can also harm wildlife and domestic animals, aquatic ecosystems, and local economies by disrupting drinking water systems and source waters, recreational uses, commercial and recreational fishing, and property values. It is likely that continued population growth, land use change, increases in nutrient inputs to our waterways, and the warming climate will favor proliferation of these problematic species. Provid

  • Audio for "1,4-Dioxane: Science, Characterization & Analysis, and Remediation," Mar 25, 2021

    25/03/2021

    1,4-Dioxane has seen widespread use as a solvent stabilizer since the 1950s. The widespread use of solvents through the 1980s suggests its presence at thousands of solvent sites in the US; however, it is not always a standard compound in typical analytical suites for hazardous waste sites, so it previously was overlooked. The U.S. EPA has classified 1,4-dioxane as "likely to be carcinogenic to humans." Some states have devised health standards or regulatory guidelines for drinking water and groundwater standards; these are often sub-part per billion values. These low standards present challenges for analysis, characterization, and remediation of 1,4-dioxane. The ITRC team created multiple tools and documents that provide information to assist all interested stakeholders in understanding this contaminate and for making informed, educated decisions. The 1,4-Dioxane: Science, Characterization & Analysis, and Remediation training is a series of six (6) modules. The six individual modules will be presented toget

    03/02/2021

    MODFLOW is a popular open-source groundwater modeling software program developed, supported, and maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey. The MODFLOW program, first released over 35 years ago, has evolved into rich suite of software programs for the simulation of groundwater flow, solute transport, and a wide range of other groundwater related processes. In 2017, the U.S. Geological Survey released a new core version of the MODFLOW program. This new version, called MODFLOW 6 (the sixth core version), extends the core MODFLOW capabilities to include robust solutions for complex water table problems, support for generalized meshes with focused resolution within areas of interest, and support for multiple models and multiple types of models within the same simulation. In addition to the Groundwater Flow Model, MODFLOW 6 now contains a Groundwater Transport Model, which can run simultaneously with the flow model or as a separate simulation using the results from a previous groundwater flow simulation.
