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)

COURSE TITLE: Solid Waste Disposal Facility - Operating Criteria
COURSE NO: C04-001
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Solid Waste Disposal Facility - Operating Criteria
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course contains a series of operating requirements pertaining to routine operation, management and environmental monitoring at municipal solid waste landfill (MSWLF) units. The operating requirements pertain to new MSWLF units, existing MSWLF units, and lateral expansions of existing MSWLF units.

 

EPA has developed these operating requirements to assist owners/operators in achieving compliance with the criteria and ensure the safe daily operation and management at MSWLF units. These operating requirements apply to owners and/or operators of MSWLF units operating on or after October 9, 1993.

 

This 4 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 operation and maintenance of municipal solid waste landfills.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Exclusion of hazardous waste
  • Cover material application
  • Disease vector control
  • Explosive gases control
  • Air monitoring
  • Facility access
  • Run-on/run-off control systems
  • Surface water requirements
  • Liquid restrictions
  • Recordkeeping requirements

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
