Course Description Hotel Accommodations
Groundwater quality is a national priority issue of immense and ever-growing proportions. The Federal government has passed strict, comprehensive and long-term legislation such as the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA), the Safe Drinking Water Act and the Pollution Prevention Act. Many state governments have passed even stricter regulations to protect groundwater quality and to clean up currently polluted aquifers.
These laws and regulations affect all sources of groundwater contamination, including chemical industries, gasoline stations, industrial landfills and lagoons, refineries, hazardous solid waste management units, municipal and private solid waste activities, nuclear waste disposal practices, mining practices and pesticide/fertilizer agricultural practices. In addition, many state laws, banks and insurance companies require groundwater quality site assessments before commercial property can be financed or sold. The magnitude and extent of the problem is reflected in EPA’s National Priorities List, which now numbers over 1300 sites, with an average cleanup cost of over $20 million per location. This list grows each year as new sites are added through state and federal groundwater programs.

Hundreds of lawsuits against private industries, such as the Woburn, Massachusetts case involving the leukemia deaths of several children (documented in the book and film, A Civil Action), have brought a public awareness and determination which has rarely been seen in past environmental issues involving water and air pollution. A measure of this concern is the vigorously enforced state and federal regulations which cover all aspects of the problem from prevention to cleanup.

The tens of billions of dollars being spent on groundwater pollution problems in the U.S. has made it the number one priority among environmental issues. In Europe, over $5 billion per year is being spent to reverse the current damage done by groundwater pollution and to prevent groundwater contamination.

Who Should Attend
The course is designed for groundwater hydrologists, geologists, engineers, chemists, environmental scientists, state/federal regulators, project managers, compliance/regulatory program managers for industry and technical experts.

The emphasis is on acquiring an extensive working knowledge of the concepts, principles and professional practices underlying groundwater pollution, hydrology and remediation. Although some
areas are necessarily surveyed in the interest of time, technical depth is the norm in the majority of sessions. Like any short course, some experience is helpful but not necessary as the course teaches basic principles before dealing with more advanced topics. The course succeeds in significantly enhancing the technical skills of all the participants without losing the neophytes and without boring those with 15 years of practical experience. This is the highest rated course in the industry - no course teaches so much!

Groundwater Short Courses
The widespread interest in groundwater has seen the offering of many two- and three-day training courses dealing with various aspects of the problem. There are very few one-week courses. The advantages of a longer course include time to cover and absorb more aspects of this expanding field and the opportunity for in-depth technical learning. Groundwater legislation, natural attenuation, risk assessment, wellhead protection techniques, monitoring equipment, DNAPL research, remediation alternatives and applications of computers have grown to such an extent in the last several years that intensive one week courses, with a few early evening sessions, are needed to adequately cover all of these new developments.

Most groundwater professionals prefer in-depth knowledge that they can apply as soon as they return to work. They also prefer a course notebook which is written and carefully covered in a textbook fashion and which will serve as a familiar guide or resource manual after the course. For those who are willing to take a week out of their busy schedules, the course meets these preferences with unparalleled technical information and applied knowledge.

Course Description
The course is the only one-week course being offered in the U.S. or Europe which comprehensively covers all aspects of groundwater pollution and hydrology from theory to practice. The instructors are recognized as the top six leading experts and teachers in the field and collectively have over 100 years of practical experience. The course is the established standard among groundwater training courses and for this reason has consistently had the largest attendance of all courses offered anywhere in groundwater.

Over 1300 pages of lecture notes have been written specifically for this course. Practical aspects are particularly emphasized through the study of illustrative case histories of groundwater contamination and remediation developed by Geosyntec and ARCADIS, Inc. and others. Based on the results of several hundred projects, these lectures stress a practical approach to cleanup which is acclaimed by industry and regulators alike.

One of the most widespread and difficult problems in groundwater contamination and remediation today is dense non-aqueous phase liquids (DNAPLs). Dr. Cherry will present the fundamental concepts underlying the occurrence, behavior and movement of DNAPLs in sedimentary deposits, clays and fractured rocks.

The course will also cover the latest theory and applications of ASTM's RBCA (Risk Based Corrective Action), including Monitored Natural Attenuation and Tiers 1, 2 and 3 in assessing groundwater contamination and establishing cleanup criteria.

Over 1000 slides are shown throughout the entire course. Among groundwater professionals, the Princeton Course is considered a must course of outstanding educational value.
Course Schedule
With some exceptions, the class generally meets daily from 8:00 A.M. to 11:30 A.M. and from1:00 P.M. to 4:30 P.M. Monday through Thursday with half-hour coffee breaks at 9:30 A.M. and 2:30 P.M. and lunch from
11:30 A.M. to 1:00 P.M. Friday begins at 8:00 A.M. and the course ends
at 1:00 P.M. with a break at 10:00 A.M. After a short break, Monday extends until 6:00 P.M. Due to the exceptional amount of material, two early evening sessions will be held on Tuesday (4:45 P.M to 8:00 P.M.)  and Thursday (4:45 P.M. to 6:30 P.M.). The early Thursday evening session is a lecture on DNAPLs in fractured rocks and also an open session with Professor Cherry where participants may discuss particular DNAPL problems and/or the course material
