23rd May 2019: Shrewsbury Water Forum presents Small Brownfield Sites

The Shrewsbury Water Forum is an informal professional business networking group aimed at promoting the water science sector, with links to CREST at University Centre Shrewsbury.

The evening event will include technical talks from hydrogeologists on the problem of contaminated land. It is also an opportunity to network with others working in groundwater and surface water related fields. The subjects covered will be:

  • Hannah Fraser (Consultant Hydrogeologist): “Guidance for the Development of Small Brownfield & Contaminated Sites”

There are many challenges that can be faced when developing small brownfield sites. As well as dealing with contaminated land, technical, financial, programme and planning issues all need to be considered. This presentation will detail guidance contained within a recent CIRIA publication as to what is typically required during each stage of the development process, from pre-acquisition through to project close-out, taking into consideration the potential issues that might be faced when dealing with a small brownfield site.”

  • Ana Braid (Principal Consultant): “Predictive Modelling of the Migration of a Shropshire Leachate Plume”
  • Anna Reed (Senior Hydrogeologist): “A Case Study of Industrial LNAPL Contamination and Remediation”

CREST@UCS is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
