GSE 2017 Symposium: Hydrogeology
Wed, 3 May 2017, 7:30 AM – 5:00 PM MDT
The Geotechnical Society of Edmonton is proud to present a one-day Workshop on Hydrogeology. This workshop will focus on key hydrogeological concepts that are important for the practicing professional through the examination of examples and case studies, including important aspects in the Edmonton and Fort McMurray areas. In this course, the topic of hydrogeology will be broken down in four main sections:
- Hydrogeological Conceptual Models;
- Piezometeric Levels and Groundwater Flow;
- Field Testing and Interpretation; and
- Baseline and Contaminant Hydrogeology
Dr. João Küpper, Ph.D., P.Eng.
Dr. Küpper is a principal hydrogeologist with Advisian. He has over 25 years of experience in hydrogeological assessments; design of dewatering and depressurization systems; design and installation of monitoring wells, dewatering wells and water supply wells; design, execution and interpretation of pumping tests; design of interceptor trenches and hydraulic barriers; environmental impact assessments; surface water and groundwater interactions; groundwater contamination and remediation; and groundwater flow and contaminant transport modelling.
He has extensive experience with hydrogeological assessments, baseline studies and environmental impact assessments, including regional groundwater studies for county-wide areas and buried valley aquifers; water supply studies; and groundwater baseline studies and environmental impact assessments in Alberta, including the areas of Fort McMurray and Fort Saskatchewan.
Dr. Küpper has provided critical reviews for hydrogeological studies, including those related to the heavy oil extraction operations, participated in mediation proceedings, and provided expert testimony at regulatory hearings.
Mr. Morris Maccagno, M.Sc., P.Geol.
Mr. Maccagno received his Master of Science in Geology with a specialization in Hydrogeology from the University of Alberta in Edmonton in 1991 and has been with WorleyParsons, now Advisian, since then. He has over 25 years of experience, including site assessment and remediation, groundwater monitoring, contaminants, risk management, groundwater flow modelling, aquifer testing, regional groundwater flow, baseline hydrogeological characterization, and legal support. He has been an expert witness in cases involving off-site hydrocarbons, metals, and VOCs contamination, and a Class II landfill siting application, and has taught the Applied Hydrogeology in Alberta course at the University of Alberta, Faculty of Extension since 2009.
