EENG 7425 - Contaminated Site Investigation and Remediation Processes

Environmental Engineering Part-time Studies Course

School of Construction and the Environment

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.
