This course has been approved for 1.0 technical continuing education credit (#1780). This course was first presented by Regenesis as a live webinar in December 2021 but did not offer LSP credit.   

Course Description: 
This presentation addresses groundwater and contaminant mass flux and a modern approach to measuring, reporting and designing with mass flux data. The webinar will:

  • Provide information on FluxTracer - a flux measurement tool developed by Regenesis that collects groundwater and contaminant mass flux data;
  • Explain how the data collected by direct mass flux measurements is different than traditional means of estimation (groundwater extraction or slug tests); and
  • Provide examples of Regenesis FluxTracer reports and discuss how mass flux data are integrated into treatment design processes.

Permeable Reactive Barriers (PRBs) are the standard approach for the remediation of large elongate plumes, however, PRBs are particularly sensitive to mass flux. This makes technologies that can directly measure mass flux valuable. Historically LSPs have relied on Water Resource methods (GW Extraction Tests and/or Slug Tests) to measure design critical PRB aquifer characteristics. Unfortunately, these measurement methods generally provide results in terms of aquifer bulk averages and do not identify or measure those contaminant mass flux zones that control contaminant migration. Regenesis has developed a flux measurement tool called FluxTracer that has shown significant improvements in ease of use and reductions in time for field installation and retrieval.

Registration Process:
Once you complete your registration form for the course, you will receive two emails from the LSPA:

  1. Your registration confirmation which also acts as a paid receipt.
  2. An email containing your log-in information and link to directly access the online course. Once this email is sent, you will have 30 days to complete the course. Access to the course and the quiz will automatically expire in 30 days. There will be no extensions or exceptions. 
  3. To receive your CEU, you must successfully complete the quiz and log out of the Learning Management System.

If you have any questions, please email Kristi Lefebvre.
