Preparation of professionals for groundwater protection

Environmental Professional 8(3): 199-209
Preparation of professionals for groundwater protection
Ground water protection will require an increasing number of well qualified personnel. We may well ask what disciplinary background is most important to qualify this personnel? What level of preparation should be expected? What is the proper balance between depth in a discipline and breadth across the problem area? A representative ground water protection problem faced by local governments suggests answers to some of these questions. A permitted solvent recycling facility finds that its buried storage tanks are leaking and that there is extensive pollution of the soil and in ground water. Drawing on the experience gained in cleaning up this pollution, we see the need for both traditional disciplinary competence and for the transfer of new knowledge from untraditional sources. A particular need is for an understanding that transcends disciplinary boundaries and that bridges science and engineering to facilitate application.
