Combined Remedies: The Time Has Come Workshop
April 23, 2014, Cambridge, MA. There has been a significant increase in the tools available for groundwater remediation and in the potential to combine these tools both spatially and temporally to achieve more cost-effective site closure in the past 10-15 years. Effective remediation plans should address the potential to use combined remedies in the site characterization process. This workshop will address the current state of practice for the innovative use of combined remedies from site characterization through remedial activities through case studies.

New England Intercollegiate Geologic Conference
: The 2014 NEIGC will be hosted by Wellesley College. The meeting will be sometime in early October. At the present time, organizers are soliciting field trip ideas.
Meg Thompson, professor emerita at Wellesley is organizing the field trips. This presents a great opportunity to galvanize the engineering geology, geotechnical, environmental consulting and industrial archaeology community and develop some applied-focused field trips for the conference. Boston and surrounding vicinities are quite accessible from Wellesley.
Meg can be contacted directly by interested parties at firstname.lastname@example.org
