NWTC Offers 4-Day Contaminant Chemistry Series

Contaminant Chemistry, Transport, Fate and Remediation in Soil and Groundwater

The Northwest Environmental Training Center, located in Georgetown at 650 South Orcas Street, Suite 220 is offering this four-day course beginning April 26 and continuing each day thorugh April 30.  Classes start at 8:00 am and run through 5:00 pm.

The series is a review of chemistry principles essential for understanding contaminant transport, fate and remediation.

  • Fundamental Contaminant Chemistry
    • CHEM-403A : Day 1 – April 26, 2010
    • A review of chemistry principles essential for understanding contaminant transport, fate and remediation.
    • This course provides participants with an overview/refresher of key chemistry concepts associated with environmental contamination. It also provides a foundation for understanding contaminant behavior. This material is intended for environmental professionals and project managers who are not chemists, but require a fundamental understanding of chemistry principles for their work. This course includes a review of chemical naming rules and how to use chemical names to predict molecular geometry and environmental behavior.
  • Contaminant Chemistry and Transport in Soil, Surface Water, and Groundwater
    • CHEM-403B : Days 2 and 3 – April 27-28, 2010
    • Understanding petroleum, chlorinated hydrocarbons, and metals behavior in soil and groundwater.
    • This course provides participants with an overview of key concepts essential for understanding soil and groundwater contamination and the selection of appropriate remediation approaches. This material is intended for environmental professionals who require a solid understanding of contaminant behavior, monitoring parameters, and how both relate to site remediation.
  • Monitored Natural Attenuation
    • GHYD-410 : Day 4 and 5 – April 29-30, 2010
    • Of petroleum and chlorinated hydrocarbons in soil and groundwater.
    • This course provides participants with an overview of the science and best practices for implementing monitored natural attenuation. The course sections focus specifically on monitored natural attenuation of petroleum hydrocarbons, fuel oxygenates, and chlorinated hydrocarbons in soil and groundwater. Software tools for natural attenuation analysis and methods for enhancing natural attenuation will also be discussed.

Tuition ranges from $295 to $595 per course.  Printable PDF brochure for the entire series is available at http://www.nwetc.org/FILES/chem-403ab_ghyd-410_04-10_seattle.pdf
