COURSE TITLE: Climate Smart Brownfields Manual
COURSE NO: C05-028
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Climate Smart Brownfields Manual
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides tools and strategies that can be implemented during the brownfield cleanup and redevelopment process. This includes consideration of projected climate change and potential impact on vulnerable populations when performing brownfield site assessments, evaluating cleanup alternatives, and planning for redevelopment.

 

Many members of vulnerable populations, including children, the elderly, low-income communities and tribal communities, live close to brownfields and other blighted properties. Brownfield redevelopment presents opportunities to reduce blight and improve the quality of life for vulnerable populations while mitigating the impacts of climate change.

 

To build resilience to climate change, members of the community (including local government, businesses, academic institutions, banks, community leaders, and residents) must pursue climate change adaptation as well as mitigation.

 

This 5 PDH online course is intended for environmental and sustainability engineers, as well as others interested in learning more about the tools, strategies, and considerations of brownfield cleanup and redevelopment.
Learning Objectives

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

  • Learning about the basic concepts of brownfield revitalization
  • Understanding the importance of mitigation and adaptation for brownfield communities
  • Understanding how to reduce climate impacts through greener demolition
  • Learning about the importance of green remediation
  • Familiarizing with brownfield redevelopment techniques

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: Solid Waste Disposal Facility - Design Criteria
COURSE NO: C08-001
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Solid Waste Disposal Facility - Design Criteria
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course explains how to identify key design features and system components for the composite liner and leachate collection system. The technical considerations include:

  • Design Concepts
  • Design Calculations
  • Physical Properties
  • Construction Methods

 

New municipal solid waste landfill (MSWLF) facilities and lateral expansions of existing landfill units must comply with either a design standard or a performance standard for landfill design. The EPA has developed minimum regulatory requirements that should be considered during the design, construction, and operation of MSWLF units to ensure that they perform in a manner protective of human health and environment. These requirements apply to owners and/or operators of MSWLF units operating on or after October 9, 1993.

 

This 8 PDH online course is applicable to owners and/or operators of MSWLF units, as well as engineers, designers, managers, construction workers and any other personnel involved with the planning and design of municipal solid waste landfills.

Learning Objectives

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

Designs Based on The Performance Standard:

  • Leachate characterization and leakage assessment
  • Leachate migration in the subsurface
  • Leachate migration models
  • Relevant point of compliance assessment

Composite Liners and Leachate Collection Systems:

  • Soil liner component (soil properties, lab testing, design, construction, and testing)
  • Flexible membrane liners (fml properties, design, installation and testing)
  • Leachate collection systems (strength, compatibility, grading, drainage and filtration)
  • Leachate removal systems (pumps, sumps, and standpipes)
  • Inspections (field observations and laboratory testing)
