RES Virtual Engineering Symposium – Session 3: Environmental Challenges
May 20 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The Rochester Engineering Society (RES) has organized a 6 Session Virtual Engineering Symposium. Each session has a unifying theme and provides PEs with an opportunity to earn PDHs.
Overview: This session will focus on the past (the Great Lakes), the present (subsurface sampling), and the future (emerging contaminants). The presentations include Lake Ontario lake level management; emerging contaminants in our environment; and geophysics as a means of exploring the earth beneath us.
Audience: Structural/civil/site/environmental/water treatment/chemical/municipal/geotechnical engineers, chemists, and officials.
Co-sponsored by: Rochester Engineering Society
