The Remedation Course


Course Date & Location:

  • Oct. 4 - 8, 2004 - Orlando, FL

Course Description

Princeton Groundwater's Remediation Course is the most comprehensive course on remediation available. Every aspect of remediation is covered from three-dimensional hydrogeochemical characterization, through practical details of all remediation technologies, to computer-simulated remedial alternatives such as Natural Attenuation, Pump & Treat, Funnel & Gate, Interceptor Trenches and complete Hydraulic Containment using barriers and capping. The course also covers many essential topics which are not found in any other courses or books. The course, however, assumes some technical background and experience in contamination problems. Those who have taken Princeton Groundwater's The Groundwater Pollution and Hydrology Course should be well prepared as this course is the next step.

The objective of this course is to teach remediation from the key methodologies to collect hydrogeochemical data, through selecting and designing remediation systems based on geological and biological effects and air/water carriers. In addition, participants will use computers to simulate remediation hydrology, groundwater pathways, capture zones, mass transport, natural attenuation, and alternative remediation designs.
