(WESTERVILLE, OH — September 7, 2011) The short course, “Monitored Natural Attenuation: Mechanisms, Site Characterization, Evaluation, and Monitoring,” is being offered by the National Ground Water Association November 7-8 in Newark, New Jersey.
This two-day short course provides the conceptual and technical background necessary to evaluate natural attenuation mechanisms and their interaction with source and transport processes at sites with organic and inorganic chemicals. It also provides in-depth discussions of the mechanisms of natural attenuation, data collection and analysis, quantification of contaminant transport and fate processes, and regulatory considerations involved in implementing MNA as a remedy for groundwater contamination. The course stresses practical information and guidelines useful for evaluating natural attenuation and applying MNA as a remediation approach. Participants also will learn how to:
This intermediate- to advanced-level course is suited to hydrogeologists, scientists, engineers, project managers, and regulators.
