The GPro talk series is a weekly webinar allowing attendees to learn about specific topics related to environmental sciences. Each talk is lead by our senior specialists who’ve spent years in the field gathering experience and knowledge.
Make sure you sign up for the webinars, even if you can’t attend the live sessions, the replays are online for 48 hours post webinar!
GeoEnviroPro Talks will be held every Wednesday at 10 am PST. The topics will be announced a week in advance. We have combined experience with every aspect of practice – from the excavator to the courtroom – and have been involved throughout the evolution of the contaminated field science and regulations in BC. Now distilled freely into 30 minute chunks. These sessions are FREE!
After 35+ years of site investigations and cleanup, we’ve seen a few things out there…and it’s time to share!!
Guy Patrick, P.Eng.Register
The presentation includes: Introduction to PFAS compounds; Regulation under the CSR; BC Environmental Lab Manual method; Field QAQC; Considerations for site characterization, remediation and risk assessment; and Other considerations outside the CSR

Use of an Ecosystem Approach for Sustainable Remediation of a Fuel Spill at a Logging Camp on a Remote First Nation Reservekeyboard_arrow_down
A broadcast of a video recording from our one day face-to-face workshop last spring on Risk Solutions for Contaminated Sites - An Exposition of Case Studies. The case study is on the use of ecosystem-level tools to evaluate risks to plants and invertebrates related to a fuel spill on a remote First Nations reserve. The Risk Solutions workshop for this year will be held on May 2 - additional details and registration link https://geoenviropro.com/trainings/risk-solutions-for-contaminated-sites-2019/

Industrial lands with access to tide water have commonly been more susceptible to groundwater contamination due to historic management practices which preceded modern environmental standards. Scientists and engineers investigating these sites must clearly determine the type of data to be collected, and which field methods are most applicable. An iterative approach of data collection and conceptual site model refinement are essential to obtaining a better understanding of subsurface conditions.
Michael Zima, Golder Associates Ltd.Access
A discussion of the variety of approaches to fill investigation and tools used. This talk highlights the importance of using a conceptual site model in designing an investigation plan, selecting PCOC, or using statistical tools.
