This course will pro­vide the key points asso­ci­at­ed with reme­di­a­tion of con­t­a­m­i­nat­ed soil and ground­wa­ter uti­liz­ing dif­fer­ent reme­di­a­tion tech­nolo­gies. The main process­es with­in reme­di­a­tion (engi­neer­ing, phys­i­cal, chem­i­cal, bio­log­i­cal, and ther­mal) will be cov­ered. Deci­sion-mak­ing fac­tors for choos­ing the appro­pri­ate reme­di­a­tion tech­nol­o­gy for each site is a focal point in this course. Descrip­tions, applic­a­bil­i­ty, advan­tages, lim­i­ta­tions, time frames, poten­tial health and safe­ty issues, and cost of var­i­ous tech­nolo­gies will also be stud­ied. Case stud­ies of con­t­a­m­i­nat­ed sites with spe­cial empha­sis on reme­di­a­tion tech­nolo­gies cur­rent­ly avail­able for han­dling such sites in Alber­ta will be explored.
