Identification of regulations and guidelines applicable to contaminated site assessment and remediation. Review of soil and contaminant properties that affect contaminant partitioning and movement in subsurface soils. Study of physical, chemical and biological treatment methods for the remediation of contaminated soils.
Theory, design and application of new or alternative processes for treatment of water and wastewater, including ozone, chlorine dioxide, ultraviolet radiation, advanced oxidation, membrane and others.
Protection of human/ecological receptors from contaminant exposure. Key topics: risk management frameworks (guideline setting/use of standards for air, water, and soil); environmental investigation strategies (sample program design and collection techniques, data interpretation); environmental site assessment standards; conceptual contaminated site modeling; contaminant transport calculations. Case studies. Prerequisite: ENV E 220. Credit cannot be obtained for both ENV E 322 and ENV E 326.
