Remediation Partners Group had a booth again this year at the annual “Soils, Sediments, Water & Energy” trade show, sponsored by the University of Massachusetts in Amherst. Geotech Computer Systems has been a member of this group for a number of years, and shared the booth with them again this October. A talk titled, “Better Data for Better Site Conceptual Models”, and written by Dr. Dave Rich of Geotech; James Cummings, USEPA; and Joseph Quinnan, ARCADIS, was presented at this year’s show. The talk was well-attended, and many questions were asked about this up-and-coming topic.

9/16/15 - Corps of Engineers Meeting

Dave Rich met with the Corps of Engineers in Omaha, NE this month, to review their current use of Enviro Data and Enviro Spase in their district, especially relative to the new FUDSCHEM database. The Corps has successfully been using Geotech’s software for several years, and states their database management has been greatly improved since they adopted this software.

6/25/15 - Annual Field Days

Geotech Environmental Equipment, headquartered in Denver, hosted its annual Field Days conference and trade show again this year. Geotech Computer Systems had a booth at the show, and President Dave Rich presented a paper titled, “Better Data for Better Site Conceptual Models”, co-authored by Dave Rich; James Cummings, USEPA; and Joseph Quinnan, ARCADIS. In a nutshell, the paper suggested two changes be made to the site conceptual model, 1) more thoroughly involve input from geologists in creating the original model, and 2) the site conceptual model should be a dynamic, rather than a static document.
