It is much easier to make good decisions if you have good quality data. Remediation/Site closure programs can fail from the lack of a thorough understanding of subsurface conditions. Contaminant distribution can be complex and traditional sampling techniques can result in high variability and large data gaps. The use of In-situ high resolution site characterization (HRSC) tools have become a key component of site assessment and decision making in support of remediation/Site closure.
Mr. O’Neill is a project manager at Vertex Environmental Inc., manages the high resolution site characterization division, and has years of experience designing and implementing high resolution site characterization programs targeting chlorinated solvents and petroleum hydrocarbons. Mr. O’Neill holds a Master’s degree from the University of Waterloo where he studied groundwater modeling of the Grand River watershed and how climate change scenarios will affect the watershed.
