Contaminated Site Investigation and Remediation Processes EENG 7425

Environmental Engineering Course

International Fees

International fees are typically three times the amount of domestic fees. Exact cost will be calculated upon completion of registration.

Course details

​This course summarizes the five main processes in the management of contaminated sites: site audit, site investigation, sampling, risk assessment, and treatment and monitoring. Further, it gives students the basic knowledge and skills to perform a site audit and investigation. Case histories will be used as examples to demonstrate the principles of environmental site assessments (ESAs) and environmental site investigations (PSIs and DSIs). In addition, this course highlights the importance of site characterization in terms of soil, water, and sediment, as an essential and integral part of the overall management of contaminated sites. It also focuses on the role of the site investigator in the implementation of a phased planning approach to obtain proper data to characterize site contamination, evaluate remedial alternatives and assess risks. The course promotes a scientific approach for evaluating and selecting options to manage site contamination, including treatment, removal or containment. Finally, the course looks at the role of risk assessment in managing contaminated sites and an overview of the evaluation and design processes for site remediation.
