Well Field Optimization Using Data – 2021 CEC Solid Waste Webinar Series

August 17, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT


Presented by Brian Wolf and Chris Sliger 

Collecting data and quantifying the performance of a landfill dewatering system in a wellfield can be a challenging and time-consuming endeavor. This discussion will present some tools that make collecting the data efficient, thorough, and trackable. In particular, this discussion will focus on quantifying liquid levels and tracking dewatering efforts at “wet” landfills.

Mr. Sliger is a Assistant Project Manager with Civil & Environmental Consultants, Inc. who has over seven years of engineering consulting experience. His primary focus has been in (a) Solid Waste and (b) Surface Water. In Solid Waste, he has performed Aerial Budget Modeling (ABM) for multiple sites. He has created 5-year plans for multiple landfills using AutoCAD Civil3D. He has also assisted with Minor Modifications and other permitting/compliance issues. He has created Survey123 surveys for use in Gas O&M, dewatering wells, and other landfill maintenance areas. In Surface Water, Mr. Sliger has performed multiple Waste-Load Allocation studies, Total Maximum Daily Load Analyses, statistical analyses, and other projects involving hydraulic and hydrologic modeling. Specific modeling toolkits utilized include HEC-HMS, River2D, Plumes, Aermod, and GIS. Permitting experience includes (but is not limited to) the US Army Corps of Engineers Nationwide Permit Program and the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), specifically NPDES permitting. He has assisted in the preparation of SWPPPs for various industries. Field experience includes (but is not limited to) dye-tracing studies, macroinvertebrate bioassessments, surface water sampling, groundwater sampling, Phase I site assessments, and bathymetric surveys. Mr. Sliger has also assisted in project management responsibilities, including proposal preparation, request-for-bids, cost-benefit analyses, and work plan compilation. Mr. Sliger has graduate-level environmental engineering coursework in erosion and sediment control; advanced wastewater treatment; open-channel hydraulics; environmental chemistry; environmental microbiology; urban hydrology and storm water engineering; environmental transport and kinetics; watershed monitoring and assessment; air pollution engineering and control.  Mr. Sliger also has graduate-level nuclear engineering coursework in reactor theory and design, partial differential equations, and advanced numerical methods.
