CACOR Sarah Dougherty Zoom Meeting
Title:  The Importance of Interdisciplinary Planning and Execution of Remediation Projects for Contaminated Sites. 
Time: Sep 15, 2021 01:00 Eastern Time (US and Canada)
Speaker: Sarah Dougherty

Construction and remediation projects at contaminated sites are dynamic and complex. Planning these types of projects involves many professions from a broad range of backgrounds, including professional engineers, scientists, health and safety personnel, construction personnel, and managers.  While many construction projects are very complex, contaminated sites have the added complication of having toxic substances affecting different media, including soils, bedrock, groundwater, surface water, and/or air.  Premeditating these toxic substances can produce dangerous conditions.  Planning for these dangerous conditions is of the utmost importance to help protect wildlife, vegetation, workers, and the public.  Ms. Dougherty will discuss the importance of interdisciplinary project planning and execution, focusing on remediation of contaminated sites to repurpose lands for new uses.

I am an environmental consultant chemist with experience monitoring and remediating contaminated sites in Alberta. I primarily assess groundwater, soil gas, and soils for contamination and provide assistance with remediation projects for landfills and midstream gas facilities. I have my designation as a Professional Chemist conducting the following duties:

– Write technical groundwater, soil, and soil gas reports.
– Conduct environmental sampling field programs (groundwater, surface water, soil gas, soil) at operating regulated facilities and contaminated sites in Alberta.
– Manage small groundwater and soil gas sampling programs, including monitoring well installation programs.
– Assess environmental sample results for regulatory projects using Alberta and CCME guidelines.
– Assist with remediation projects for contaminated sites in Alberta.
– Assist with risk assessment projects for contaminated sites in Alberta.
