The course is geared toward Licensed Site Remediation Professionals (LSRPs), engineers and other environmental professionals involved with the planning and design of groundwater remedies. A number of common engineered systems are covered, including extraction wells, collector trenches, slurry/sheet pile walls, permeable reactive barriers, and funnel and gate remedies. Attendees receive instruction, and participate in a series of exercises in which they utilize the flexAEM calculators to evaluate aquifer drawdown; optimize pumping and extraction rates; determine groundwater flow paths, velocities and residence times; estimate capture zone extents; create graphics with groundwater contours and pathlines; and examine other aspects that should be considered when designing, evaluating and optimizing groundwater remediation systems.
The “Rapid Design and Analysis of Groundwater Remediation Systems” course is eligible for LSRP Technical CECs, Wastewater Operators TCH credits, and Professional Engineer CPC credits in the State of New Jersey, as well as Rutgers continuing education credits. Information on the course, including dates of future course offerings, can be found on the Rutgers University Office of Continuing Professional Education Page.
