Course Description


Princeton Groundwater's Remediation Course is the most comprehensive course on remediation available.  During 40 hours of classroom instruction, every aspect of soil and groundwater remediation is covered including high-resolution, three-dimensional hydrogeochemical characterization, Federal/State regulations, and practical design details of all remediation technologies. All aspects of Indoor Air Vapor Intrusion, Petroleum Vapor Intrusion, and mitigation are also covered. The course covers many essential topics such as strategies for cost-effective solutions, 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 The Groundwater Pollution and Hydrology Course should be well prepared as this course is the next step.
