Join SCS Engineers at the 2022 Annual GWPC & UIC Conference where we focus on groundwater protection and underground injection control (UIC). The conference features live sessions, interactive round tables, discussion groups, and networking opportunities with both in-person and virtual attendance options. Look for these experts’ sessions, including:
Thursday, June 23 at 8:30-10:00 Class VI UIC
“Sensitivity of Aquifer Chemistry to Changes in Carbon Dioxide Partial Pressure: Implications for Design of Groundwater Monitoring Protocols,” with Kacey Garber. Using a case study, Kacey takes us through the great care taken in the design, operation, and permitting of injection of carbon compounds to ensure that the sequestration is effective and permanent. She takes us through the implementation of an optimal and cost-effective groundwater protection plan by establishing a groundwater monitoring protocol that is specific to the site, sensitive to changes in the partial pressure of protection, and relative insensitive to natural variability and hydrochemical facies changes.
Thursday, June 23 at 10:30 – 12:00 Class I UIC
“Microbially Influenced Corrosion in Injection Wells: A Case Study in a Class I Well for Coal Combustion Residuals,” with Stephanie Hill. Stephanie takes us through a case study of MIC-related failure used for leachate disposal from a CCR facility. She will walk through the investigation process which included annular pressure testing, downhole caliper logging, casing thickness detection, injection fluid analysis, and metallurgical analysis to identify the cause of failure. Stephanie will cover the corrections made using a customized plan to prevent future MIC-related issues.
