GeoOttawa 2017 – Ottawa, ON

October 1, 2017 - October 4, 2017

Morrison Hershfield is proud to support three of our colleague presenting at this year’s Canadian geotechnical and hydrogeological practitioners conference. The conference will be held at the Shaw Centre in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada from Sunday, October 1 to Wednesday, October 4, 2017. The theme for GeoOttawa 2017 is “70 Years of Canadian Geotechnics and Geoscience”. Join Morrison Hershfield in our sessions during the conference. Our topics will be presented by Mitchell Dawley, Curtis Edgington and Adel Chowdhury, and are co-written by our Geo-Environmental Practice Leader, Anthony (Ant) West, Pd.D., P.Eng.

Naturally Occurring Metals in Fine-Grained Champlain Sea Deposits, Ottawa
Wednesday Oct. 4th, 2017 – 13:45 – 15:15 – Canada Hall 2
Mitchell Dawley, B.Eng., E.I.T.

As part of the Stage 2 Ottawa Light Rail Transit subsurface investigation, drilling and environmental soil sampling occurred within the fine-grained Champlain Sea deposits located throughout the Ottawa Region. Join Mitchell as he discusses the naturally elevated metal concentrations that were measured in these deposits and how these findings related to excess material management practices throughout Ottawa and much of Eastern Ontario.

The Use of On-Line Document Sharing Tools for Management of Impacted Materials on a Highly Complex Construction Project
Wednesday Oct. 4th, 2017 – 13:45 – 15:15 – Canada Hall 2
Curtis Edgington, B.A.Sc., E.I.T.

Traditionally, environmental practitioners have played a supporting or reactive role in multi-disciplinary construction projects. As the Ontario legislation governing excess soil management evolves it is becoming clear that environmental expertise needs to become closely integrated into the design and construction phases of large projects. Join Curtis to learn how the environmental discipline is being fully integrated into the design-build construction process.

The Well Survey – a Simple but Effective Tool for Hydrogeology Studies
Monday & Tuesday Poster Display in the Exhibition Hall
Adel Chowdhury, B.Eng., E.I.T.

The objective of this study was to evaluate the value that a well survey provides as a tool in achieving project objectives. We reviewed the files of 51 projects involving hydrogeology studies to understand how the well survey, if conducted, influenced the outcome of the project. Visit Adel during the poster sessions to learn the results of the assessment.
