Contaminated and Hazardous Waste Site Management Course (Mon - Fri)

Mon Jun 5 to Fri Jun 9, 2017, Toronto, ON

GOwen Environmental Limited and the International Association of Hydrogeologists (IAH) present Contaminated and Hazardous Waste Site Management, a comprehensive course that provides a solid theoretical and practical foundation in contaminated site management. The Course has been developed especially for individuals who manage, regulate, investigate, remediate, or are impacted by contaminated sites. Managing these sites is a multidisciplinary task, therefore, integrating several disciplines is necessary to efficiently and economically manage or make decisions regarding site issues.

Highlights of the course include:

• 5 days of in-depth discussions by 15 leading environmental, soil, sediment and groundwater experts representing academia, consulting, and government from across North America. These experts will provide a comprehensive overview of hydrogeology and geochemical principles, site assessment procedures, risk assessment and risk management tools, remediation technologies, and management issues relating to contaminated and hazardous waste sites.

• Networking Lunches

• 2 Evening optional computer based workshops on computer modelling and environmental management support software.

• 1 half-day of outdoor hands-on technical demonstrations on Site Characterization and Remediation Technologies and Techniques used in sampling and monitoring programs.

• 4.7 Continuing Education Units (CEUs)

• Optional excursions to Niagara Falls (for international participants) and the CN Tower Observation Deck

Topics covered in the course include:
Contaminant Hydrogeology and Hydrology, Soil Chemistry of Hazardous Materials, Practical Groundwater Pollution or Contamination Model Applications for Site Assessment and Remediation, Groundwater Modelling Workshop, Site Characterization and Conceptual Site Model Development, Project Management Tools for Environmental Projects including cost estimation and communication strategies, Sediment Characterization, Human and Ecological Risk Assessment, Soil Remediation and Groundwater Remediation, Environmental Data Management Workshop, Environmental Site Assessment or Characterization Tools and Techniques, Contaminated Site Project Management for consultants and clients, Environmental Law Applicable to Contaminated Sites, Health & Safety at Hazardous Waste Sites
