Complimentary Roux Webinar – Living Landfills: Don’t Cap It, Plant It!

Living Landfills: Don’t Cap It, Plant It!

Monday, December 19 • 2:00pm (EST)
Presented by Amanda Ludlow, Principal Scientist (Roux Associates)

This webinar will provide an overview of conventional and alternative capping, introduce the science behind Roux’s innovative living landfills, present the advantages of these designs, and discuss the cost savings achieved by eliminating expensive liner based caps.

Conventional landfill capping, which utilizes material with low hydraulic permeability (i.e., clay or geomembrane liners) to minimize rainwater contact with waste, can be expensive. Twenty years ago the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recognized the importance of exploring more sustainable technologies for landfill closure: alternative landfill covers.

Alternative landfill covers use a combination of soil and plants to store and consume rainwater, thus minimizing infiltration. Cost savings as high as 50% can be achieved relative to conventional caps.

Roux has combined the practices of phytoremediation (utilizing deep rooting, water-loving tree species) and alternative capping, creating “living landfill” designs in humid and northeast climates where alternative capping is normally difficult to implement. These living landfills not only capture and evapotranspire rainwater, but promote in situ remediation of landfill waste.

Roux Complimentary Webinar: Cleanup Options for Navajo Abandoned Uranium Mines

Cleanup Options for Navajo Abandoned Uranium Mines

Thursday, December 8 • 2:00pm (EST)
Presented By: Dr. Neil M. Ram, Larry McTiernan, PG, LSP, and Catie Boston, Senior Geologist

Please join us for a Roux complimentary webinar, entitled Cleanup Options for Navajo Abandoned Uranium Mines. This webinar will discuss the current status of known contamination arising from abandoned uranium mines (AUMs) within the Navajo Nation, and examines options for addressing the elevated risks to health that AUM waste poses to the people of the Navajo Nation.

Dr. Neil M. Ram, Larry McTiernan, and Catie Boston of Roux Associates will be presenting this webinar, based on their published article in the Summer 2016 edition of Remediation Journal.

Solvents and Fuel in Soil and Groundwater: When the Usual Hydrogeologist’s Toolbox is Insufficient

Wednesday, October 26 • 1:00pm (EST) • Presenter: Walt W. McNab, Jr., Ph.D., P.G.

Tomorrow—Please join us for a Roux complimentary webinar presented by Walt W. McNab, Jr., Ph.D., P.G., entitled Solvents and Fuel in Soil and Groundwater: When the Usual Hydrogeologist’s Toolbox is Insufficient.

The common questions in environmental forensics—When? Where? How much?—can entail difficult technical issues when it comes to discharged petroleum products and solvents that exist as free phase liquids in soil and groundwater. Often, the familiar day-to-day analytical approaches used by hydrogeologists won’t work because complex physics gets in the way.

This webinar will describe these issues, provide some examples of where characterization problems may arise, and demonstrate how special tools and approaches can help provide insights.
