David Reisman, currently a Senior Technical Advisor for CDM
Smith, a full-service consulting, engineering, construction, and operations
firm, 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. Mr. Reisman will lecture
on soil remediation principles, technologies and techniques.
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.
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 Principal and Senior Project Manager with Conestoga-Rovers
& Associates. Mr. Daniel manages CRAs surface water and environmental
design groups and surface water/sediment modeling group. Mr. Daniel has over 19
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
