Megan Nishikawa, an attorney at King & Spalding LLP, joined John Connor, David Adamson, and Lisa Molofsky of GSI Environmental Inc. to discuss the fundamental issues at play defending groundwater contamination cases. Mr. Connor is President of GSI Environmental Inc., an engineering and science consulting firm. He specializes in environmental site investigation among other issues and often serves as an expert witness in cases where environmental impacts and money damages are at issue. Ms. Molofsky is a professional geologist specializing in site investigations and sources of variability in groundwater modeling. Dr. Adamson is a principal engineer specializing in subsurface contamination, including chemical fate and transport.

The presentation, addresses the basic fundamentals of hydrogelogy and groundwater modeling. Topics covered include the formation and migration of contaminant plumes in groundwater, chemical transformation in groundwater, the methods and limitations of groundwater modeling, groundwater remediation, and finally, the key “watchouts” when reviewing work by opposing counsel’s hydrogeologist.
