COURSE TITLE: Landfill Gas Collection and Treatment Systems
COURSE NO: C11-001
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Landfill Gas Collection and Treatment Systems
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course establishes criteria and guidance for landfill gas (LFG) collection and treatment systems. In addition, this course provides information about the design of systems used to monitor, collect, transport, and treat gas from municipal, industrial, and hazardous waste landfills.

 

LFG is produced by the biological decomposition of general solid waste refuse and other organic materials disposed of in the landfill. Its production typically begins within a year of waste placement, and may continue up to 50 years after landfill closure, with peak LFG production for any given disposal cell occurring within the first or second year of waste placement. The total LFG production rate increases as more waste is added to the landfill.

 

This course aims to provide information specifically relating to landfill gas collection systems in order to help landfill employees understand the available equipment and how and when to use them.

 

This 11 PDH online course is applicable to civil, environmental, geotechnical engineers, construction managers and landfill operators seeking an introduction to the operation and maintenance of landfill gas collection systems.
Learning Objectives

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

  • Understanding the purpose of landfill gas collection systems
  • Learning how to design landfill gas collection systems
  • Learning how to design landfill gas treatment systems
  • Familiarizing with the operation and maintenance of landfill gas collection systems
  • Familiarizing with the safety procedures and regulations of landfill gas collection systems
Course Document

COURSE TITLE: Release Detection for Underground Storage Tanks and Piping
COURSE NO: C04-050
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Release Detection for Underground Storage Tanks and Piping
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents information about the 2015 federal underground storage tank (UST) system requirements and regulations. UST and its underground piping must have release detection to comply with federal law. In addition to complying with federal law, some implementing agencies may have additional regulations which apply to the system.

 

Each of the sections herein focus on one release detection method for underground tanks and/or the requirements for underground piping. You will find answers in this booklet to basic questions about how release detection methods work and which methods are best for your UST site.

 

As of September 2015, over 528,000 UST releases were confirmed since the UST program was implemented. At sites without release detection, contamination can spread undetected, requiring difficult and costly clean-ups. 

 

If you have effective release detection, you can respond quickly to signs of releases. You can minimize the extent of or eliminate potential for environmental damage and the threat to human health and safety. Early action also protects you from high costs that can result from cleaning up extensive releases and responding to third-party liability claims. 

 

This 4 PDH online course is applicable to petroleum engineers, owners/operators, and personnel involved with the release detection of underground storage tanks.
Learning Objectives

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

  • Learning the basic release detection requirements for underground storage tanks (USTs) and piping
  • Understanding the different release detection methods for USTs and choosing the best option for a given application
  • Familiarizing with the federal regulatory requirements for release detection
Course Document
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the document “Release Detection for Underground Storage Tanks and Piping: Straight Talk on Tanks” prepared by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, EPA 510-K-16-003.

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.

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
