EPOC's Young Environmental Professions group (YEP) is excited to announce the next study group session for the 2017 exam to be held on Thursday February 23, 2017 from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. The session will be moderated by Dr. Gordon Binkhorst, Licensed Environmental Professional with ALTA, and the focus will be on specifics and environmental fate of Non-Aqueous Phase Liquids. However, Gordon will be available to answer questions on any topic. Light food and drinks will be provided. The session is open to all YEP members at no fee, not just those taking the exam this year! Feel free to come and listen or participate and ask questions.

With over 30 years of experience, Dr. Binkhorst has a comprehensive knowledge of hydrogeologic principles, contaminant fate and transport mechanisms, and assessment and remediation techniques and strategies. Dr. Binkhorst has been a Licensed Environmental Professional in the State of Connecticut since 2009.
Prior to joining ALTA, Dr. Binkhorst conducted research for both his Masters and Doctorate degrees at the University of Connecticut. His doctoral research evaluated methods to delineate and quantify the weathering of entrapped residual non-aqueous phase gasoline in the subsurface. Dr. Binkhorst’s Masters research studied factors affecting hydraulic conductivity values determined from slug tests conducted in typical groundwater monitoring wells with draining filter packs. Dr. Binkhorst is presently an Adjunct Professor for the Center for Integrative Geosciences at the University of Connecticut where he teaches an upper-level undergraduate class on completing environmental site assessments. Dr. Binkhorst also serves as a Senior Technical Advisor to Pure Earth in New York, assisting in environmental assessments and remediation globally on their behalf, including mitigation of lead exposure to residents surrounding a former lead mine in Kabwe, Zambia.
We hope to see you there!
