An Introduction to In-Situ Treatment of Hazardous Soil
This online engineering PDH course presents methods and technologies for treatment of contaminated soil in situ without substantive excavation of the soil.
Various in-situ technologies are applied for the treatment of contaminated soil in both the vadose zone and saturated and unsaturated source zones. These technologies involve applying chemical, biological, or physical processes to the subsurface to degrade, remove, or immobilize contaminants without removing the bulk soil. Compared to excavation and ex situ treatment, the use of these technologies offers several benefits, such as addressing deep contamination and costing less in general.
This 2 PDH course is intended for civil and environmental engineers as well as other design and construction professionals interested in learning about the principles of in-situ hazardous soil treatment.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Learning about site specific monitoring programs
- Understanding the fundamental requirements for extraction wells
- Knowing how frequently extraction wells should be monitored
- Understanding the importance of balancing techniques for multiple extraction wells
- Learning about perimeter LFG migration control
- Learning how to address leachate blockage issues at extraction wells
- Understanding the importance of monitoring conditions that may lead to landfill fires
- Learning how to employ LFG monitoring probes
