GeoPro Talks – In-Situ Remediation of Bedrock: Two Case Studies

February 15th, 2023 by

In-situ remediation of fractured bedrock aquifers used to be considered near impossible. Advances in technology and innovative field methods have now make in-situ a feasible approach for remediating contaminated bedrock sites. This talk will present an overview of bedrock remediation challenges and will showcase in-situ bedrock remediation technologies through the presentation of two recent and varied bedrock sites.


Mr. Brenner is a Project Manager at Vertex Environmental Inc. with experience in environmental engineering, specializing in site assessment and remediation. Mr. Brenner has been involved in the design and implementation of remediation programs across Canada involving permeable reactive barriers, adsorptive technologies, in-situ chemical oxidation and reduction, aerobic and anaerobic biodegradation, etc. in soil, groundwater, and bedrock for a variety of contaminants, including petroleum hydrocarbons, chlorinated solvents, and heavy metals. He holds aBachelor’s degree in Engineering from the University of Guelph and is a ProfessionalEngineer.
