In-Situ Air Sparging
This online engineering PDH course provides guidance for evaluation of the feasibility of in-situ air sparging (IAS) for remediation of contaminated groundwater and soil. This course also describes design and operational considerations for IAS systems.
In-Situ Air Sparging (IAS) is a rapidly emerging remediation technology for treating contaminants in saturated zone soils and groundwater. It is a relatively easy technology to implement and it is well known to regulatory agencies. IAS involves the injection of air, pure oxygen, or other gases below the water table which may result in the removal of contaminants through volatilization or bioremediation. In a less common application, IAS can also be used to immobilize contaminants through chemical changes such as precipitation.
This 14 PDH online course is intended for civil and environmental engineers as well as other technical professionals interested in learning about the design, operation, and feasibility of IAS systems.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Learning about the background of IAS
- Familiarizing with the underlying physical process and technology used in IAS
- Understanding the basics of feasibility evaluations and site characterization
- Gaining insight into pilot testing guidance and strategies
- Familiarizing with design considerations for IAS
- Learning about operation and maintenance requirements for IAS systems
- Familiarizing with IAS system shutdown strategies
- Gaining insight into administrative issues such as regulations, patents, and safety
