Environmental Risk Assessment, Monitoring and Management of Cemeteries

09/05/2018 @ 16:00 - 19:00
Kloof Country Club, Kloof Country Club
Durban, KwaZulu Natal South Africa

Investigations for cemeteries has received very little attention.  Risks are not negligible and may, in certain instances, affect human and environmental health and safety. The works forms part of a Water Research Commission project on the hydrological and geotechnical impacts of interments.  Outcomes are presented together with case studies to contribute to risk assessments for new cemetery sites and the monitoring and management of existing cemeteries.

Sanlam Auditorium, University of Preotira, corner Lynnwood and Roper Streets
Pretoria, Gauteng South Africa
+ Google Map
R5750

Resilience to geological and hydrological hazards in dolomitic terrains is increasingly affected by climate change, rapid urbanisation and unforeseen implications of development during and after construction. The influences of the bedrock properties, karst development, hydrology and proposed development all affect the potential risk posed by the development. Dolomite and karst research has a long history with the University of Pretoria. Now, with the partnership of the relevant societies for geotechnical engineering, hydrogeology and engineering geology, new advances, technologies and techniques…
