SAN CLEMENTE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--REGENESIS, a leader in the development of advanced environmental remediation technologies, is contributing financial support for the 2013 Henry Darcy Distinguished Lecture Series in Groundwater Science. The series, primarily supported by a grant from the National Ground Water Association (NGWA), was established in 1986 by the National Ground Water Research and Educational Foundation (NGWREF) to foster academic interest and excellence in groundwater science and technology by enabling an outstanding groundwater professional to share his or her work directly with industry professionals, peers and students around the world.
“REGENESIS is excited about making a contribution to this global, groundwater-focused educational series, which has already delivered relevant content to and impacted more than 85,000 groundwater professionals and students”
“REGENESIS is excited about making a contribution to this global, groundwater-focused educational series, which has already delivered relevant content to and impacted more than 85,000 groundwater professionals and students,” said Bryan W. Vigue, the company’s Vice President of Marketing. “As a long-standing member of the global groundwater remediation community, we look forward to partnering with the NGWREF in providing high-quality information regarding groundwater resources.”
This year’s lecture, “Managing Groundwater Beneath the Agricultural Landscape,” will be presented by Professor David L. Rudolph, Ph.D., PE, of the University of Waterloo. It focuses on the groundwater quality impacts of agricultural land-use practices, at both local and regional scales, with a specific focus on nitrate and microbial indicator species. Agricultural land use represents the largest nonpoint source threat to groundwater quality on a global scale. Prof. Rudolph has served as a member on NGWA’s Scientists and Engineers Division Board and was the 2010 recipient of NGWA’s M. King Hubbert Award for contributions to the field of hydrogeology.
The Darcy lectures are presented at participating universities and other forums throughout the world. The series is named for the pioneering French engineer Henry Darcy (1803-1858), whose contributions, including Darcy’s law for flow in porous media, are still fundamental to modern groundwater hydrology, soil physics, and petroleum engineering. Dr. Rudolph will give 17 presentations throughout the fall in Australia, Canada, Finland, Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States, ending the series at the 2013 NGWA Groundwater Expo in Nashville, Tennessee on December 4th.
