Peter Dumble Hydrogeology (UK)
Peter Dumble is an independent hydrogeologist with a specialist interest in groundwater monitoring methodology and research. Since 1994 he has been involved with the delivery of a series of highly respected groundwater monitoring training courses in the UK and Ireland and in the development of monitoring guidance for the Environment Agency and others. He is a co-founder and was for 20 years the Managing Director of the market-leading groundwater equipment supplier, Waterra UK Limited, which was purchased in 2010 by In-Situ Inc. His practical experience using instrumentation in the field extends from the UK and Ireland to Canada, the Middle East and West Africa. He writes a technical monthly blog on groundwater monitoring and related issues for In-Situ Europe at http://www.in-situ-europe.com/news/cat/Peter-dumble-blog/ and regularly peer reviews submission of papers for a number of scientific journals.
Using real-time monitoring for rapid assessment of remediation strategy effectiveness
In this case study, designed to detect the distribution and direction of travel of an injected colloidal remediation agent, a predicted monitoring timeframe of 18 months was reduced to 3 months. This was possible by the innovative deployment of water quality sondes collecting high resolution turbidity data in real time. As a result, technical and cost-saving decisions on the effectiveness of the programme were made over a year earlier than expected.
