Course Description
Princeton Groundwater's Remediation Course is the most comprehensive course on remediation available. It is taught twice a year in the spring (typically April or June) in Las Vegas and in the fall (typically October) in Miami. Every aspect of remediation is covered including three-dimensional hydrogeochemical characterization, indoor air vapor intrusion, practical details of all remediation technologies, and computer-simulated remedial alternatives such as Natural Attenuation, Pump & Treat, 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
Remediation Course
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 (see course above) should be well prepared as this course is the next step.

Course Objective
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 may use computers in an optional, bonus Friday afternoon Mini-Course to simulate remediation geohydrology, groundwater pathways, capture zones, mass transport, natural attenuation, and alternative remediation designs.


What You Will Learn

  • Practical remediation strategies and options drawn from hundreds of case histories

  • The geological and hydrochemical factors applicable to remedial
    designs for cleaning up soil and groundwater

  • Field methods to fully characterize aquifers, source zones and plumes to allow selection and design of effective remedial measures and set achievable cleanup levels

  • Ability to select remediation systems based on variable hydrogeology, life cycle design, air/water carriers, biodegradation, and monitored natural attenuation for dissolved phase, light and dense non-aqueous phase liquids (NAPLs)

  • Strategic approach to cost effective remedial design

  • Hands-on experience with 2D and 3D computer simulations of flow and mass transport for applications in remediation strategies, design and field investigations. Natural attenuation simulations for use in Risk-Based Corrective Action (RBCA) studies

The Remediation Course uniquely integrates the topics of heterogeneous geohydrology, aquifer / source / plume characterization, remediation
technologies / strategies / designs, and computer simulation software.
The result is the premier course on remediation.

Course Schedule
With some exceptions, the class generally meets daily from 8:00 A.M. to 11:30 A.M. and from 1:00 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. After short breaks at 4:30 P.M., Monday extends to 6:00 P.M. and Tuesday extends to 7:00 P.M. Due to the exceptional amount of material, after a short break, the class on Wednesday goes to 6:00 P.M., followed by a one hour dinner break and additional lectures from 7:00 P.M. to 9:10 P.M. The formal part of the course ends on Friday at 11:30 A.M. Friday afternoon from 12:00-5:30 P.M. is an optional hands-on computer laboratory session. Students will be introduced to the practical, remediation applications of Visual Modflow, and the EPA/Air Force’s Bioscreen/Bioscreen-AT software packages.

Course Materials and Continuing Education Units
Students will receive over 1,200 pages of lecture notes in an attractive binder. In addition, they will be given a certificate of satisfactory completion and qualify to receive 4.1 Continuing Education Units (CEUs). A record is kept of these units and transcripts may be requested at a later date.

Registration
Early registration is strongly advised for this popular course. Enrollment is limited and applications will be accepted in the order they are received. To enroll today, click here, or call (813) 964-0800. Please make checks payable to Princeton Groundwater, Inc. The full fee is due two weeks before the first day of class unless prior arrangements for invoicing have been made. This fee will be fully refunded if cancellation is received 2 weeks before the course, thereafter 50% of the fee will be refunded or the full amount applied to the next Remediation Course. Substitutions may always be made.

Hotel Accommodations
A block of rooms has been reserved at a substantially reduced rate. You must, however, make your reservation at least 1 month before the course and identify yourself as being with Princeton Groundwater’s Remediation Course. The fall (typically in October) course is held at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Miami Airport & Convention Center in Miami, FL; The room block will be held until one month before the course--so you should get your reservations in early to get the special rate. After that date reservations will be taken on a space and rate available, call them at (305) 261-3800. The spring course (typically in April or June) is held at the Orleans Casino Hotel in Las Vegas, NV. For reservations, call them at (702) 365-7111.
