Jon Kitchen spoke at the 27th Annual International Conference on Soil, Sediments, Water and Energy at UMass Amherst (the ‘’UMass Soils Conference’’) on the morning of Thursday, October 20, 2011. The title of the presentation was Fate and Transport Characteristics of Home Heating Oil Releases Based Upon a Review of Empirical Data from Actual Releases. The study involved a look back at 100 heating oil releases in Massachusetts that we have worked on in some capacity (LSP-of-record, insurance oversight, litigation support, or chemical oxidation subcontractor). The goal of the presentation was to try to present what a “typical” heating oil spill looks like and talk about factors which make each spill different.
Congratulations to Carolyn for winning the November 4, 2008 election for Middlesex County's 8th District, U.S. Sentate seat.
