    Join us at the new Dunkin' Donuts Park, home of the Hartford Yard Goats AA baseball team, for our annual dinner meeting showcasing the new stadium.  Our event begins at 5:30 PM with social hour, followed by buffet dinner, brief business meeting, and our keynote presentation. 

    Meeting will be held in the YG Club, a 7,000 square foot indoor space located behind home plate. There is no ballgame on this day.

    Our event will include a stadium tour AND use of indoor batting cages (from 5:30 - 6:30 PM). 

    Keynote Speakers:

    • Michael W. Freimuth, Executive Director of the Capital Region Development Authority, (CRDA)
    • Sean Fitzpatrick, Director of the Department of Development Services for the City of Hartford

    Michael Freimuth and Sean Fitzpatrick will discuss how recent publicly-supported redevelopment projects and venue enhancements are attracting an infusion of private investments in Hartford and the greater Hartford region.

    Dissolved Oxygen Alteration Method for Fractured Bedrock Wellbore Flow Characterization

    Wednesday, October 18, 2017
    University of Connecticut, Storrs, CT

    Gary Robbins, Ph.D., University of Connecticut
    ---------------------------------------------

    Continuing Education Credits:

    This course was previously offered on 4/5/17. The CT State Board of Examiners of Environmental Professionals (LEP Board) has approved this course for 4.0 hours of continuing education credits (CTLEP-430). The MA LSP Board has approved this course for 4.0 hours Technical Credits (LSP Course #1593). The course also has been approved in NY (course #20170076) for 4 PDH(s) - (2 PDHs Continuing Education/Training Activity,  2 PDHs Other Educational Activity) in the field of Professional Engineering. 

    ---------------------------------------------

    Time and Location:

    Registration will begin at 7:30 AM, the program runs from 8 AM - 12 PM.  The course will be held at University of Connecticut, Storrs, CT, Beach Hall - room 209. Further directions and parking information will be sent to registrants.

    Laptop Required:

    A windows laptop with Microsoft Excel (tm) installed is required for this course. Following registration, you will be provided to links to download other analysis software to be used in the course.

    Course Objectives:

    The objective of this course is to introduce attendees to the Dissolved Oxygen Alteration Method (DOAM) for characterizing wellbore flow in bedrock wells. The DOAM entails increasing the dissolved oxygen content of a well through bubbler aeration, then profiling periodically to identify changes in dissolved oxygen associated with flow conditions. The DOAM can be used to identify transmissive fractures and vertical flow direction under ambient and pumping conditions, and provide a cost-effective means of interpreting sampling results in consideration of three-dimensional factors that influence flow.

    This course will begin with a review of the risks associated with two-dimensional site characterization, and the limitations of traditional techniques for wellbore flow characterization. The attendees will then be introduced to the DOAM as developed by Chlebica and Robbins (2013) as a cost-effective and logistically simple alternative for delineating wellbore flow in bedrock wells under ambient and pumping conditions.

    The outdoor field demonstration will include aeration and monitoring of dissolved oxygen in a 300-ft bedrock well under pumping conditions. Attendees will record and analyze data while profiling. Following field testing, the instructors and attendees will reconvene in the classroom to discuss the results of the field test and answer any questions. 

    Agenda:

    • 7:30 AM -  Registration
    • 8:00 AM  -  Introduction
    • 8:10 AM -  Dissolved Oxygen Alteration Method (DOAM)
    • 9:10 AM -  Break and Transition to field site
    • 9:15- 11:15 AM -  Field demonstration and analysis of DOAM under pumping conditions
    • 11:15 AM - Return to class room, analysis discussion, Q&A
    • 12:00 PM -  End of Seminar
