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.
- 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
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.
- 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
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 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
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.
- Onsite disposal techniques
- Offsite disposal techniques
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".
