COURSE TITLE: Solid Waste Disposal Facility - Closure and Post Closure Criteria
COURSE NO: C03-005
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Solid Waste Disposal Facility - Closure and Post Closure Criteria
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes EPA's closure and post-closure criteria for solid waste disposal facilities. The criteria for landfill closure focus on two central themes: (1) the need to establish low-maintenance cover systems and (2) the need to design a final cover that minimizes the infiltration of precipitation into the waste.

 

Critical technical issues that must be faced by the designer include the following:

  • Degree and rate of post-closure and stresses imposed on soil liner components
  • Long-term durability and survivability of cover system
  • Long-term waste decomposition and management of landfill leachate and gases
  • Environmental performance of the combined bottom liner and final cover system

 

Full closure and post-closure requirements apply to municipal solid waste landfill (MSWLF) units that have been receiving waste since October 9, 1993. For MSWLF units that stopped receiving wastes prior to October 9, 1993, only the final cover requirements apply.

 

This 3 PDH online course is applicable to owners, operators of MSWLF units, as well as engineers, designers, managers, construction workers and any other personnel involved with the closure and post-closure of municipal solid waste landfills.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Final cover design
  • Alternative final cover design
  • Closure plan
  • Closure criteria
  • Post-closure care requirements
  • Post-closure plans
Course Document

In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review Chapter 6, “Closure and Post-Closure” of the EPA “Solid Waste Disposal Facility Criteria” Technical Manual.

COURSE TITLE: Disposal Technologies for Hazardous and Toxic Waste
COURSE NO: C02-006
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Disposal Technologies for Hazardous and Toxic Waste
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides guidance for the design of disposal systems. A disposal system is a properly engineered facility used for ultimate disposal of hazardous waste into or on land or water. Disposal systems have general applicability to all types of waste streams.

 

The different disposal techniques are collectively capable of handling wastes in solid, semisolid, and liquid forms. As many disposal systems have shown migration or dispersion of the contaminants to the surrounding environment, there is usually strong public resistance to siting a solid or hazardous waste disposal facility.

 

This 2 PDH online course is applicable to civil and environmental engineers, as well as design and construction personnel involved with hazardous and toxic waste treatment and disposal activities.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Onsite disposal techniques
  • Offsite disposal techniques
Course Document

In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review Chapter 5 of the US Corps of Engineers Publication EM 1110-1-502, "Disposal Technologies".

Course Quiz
Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of ten (10) questions to earn 2 PDH credits. The quiz will be based on Chapter 5 of this US Corps of Engineers publication.

 

The minimum passing score is 70%. There is no time limit on the quiz, and you can take it multiple times until you pass at no additional cost.

COURSE TITLE: Revitalizing Contaminated Lands: Addressing Liability Concerns
COURSE NO: C03-061
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Revitalizing Contaminated Lands: Addressing Liability Concerns
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course discusses the statutory, policy, guidance, and regulatory provisions that may be helpful to parties looking to manage environmental clean-up liability risks associated with the revitalization of contaminated sites. It is designed for use by parties involved in the assessment, clean-up, and revitalization of sites, and provides a basic description of the tools that may be available to address liability concerns.

 

Revitalizing contaminated lands means providing reuse opportunities of abandoned properties to communities and land owners by cleanup enforcement program. The main objective of the cleanup enforcement program is to ensure prompt site cleanup and the participation of liable parties in performing and paying for cleanups in a manner that ensures protection of human health and the environment.

 

This 3 PDH online course is applicable environmental, civil, and industrial engineers as well as others interested in learning more about revitalizing contaminated lands.
Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Learning the enforcement tools to help promote the clean-up and revitalization of contaminated sites
  • Understanding the policies available to help promote cleanup and revitalization of contaminated sites
  • Knowing how to manage the environmental cleanup liability risks associated with the revitalization of contaminated sites for parties
  • Familiarizing with the available tools to address liability concerns
Course Document
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the document “Revitalizing Contaminated Lands: Addressing Liability Concerns” which is based on the U.S. EPA publication dated June 2014.
