CV 554 - Ground Water and Soil Remediation Technologies

3 lecture hours 0 lab hours 3 credits
Course Description
This course presents an overview of techniques to be used to clean up existing pollutants in soil, water or air in the vicinity of hazardous waste sites. Emphasis is on the remediation of pre-existing pollution rather than on pollution prevention strategies. Topics to be covered include the following: (1) surface water control strategies such as capping of surface impoundments, floating lagoon covers, grading, revegetation, diversion and collection; (2) groundwater contaminant clean-up and control strategies such as groundwater pumping, subsurface drains, subsurface barriers, and groundwater treatment procedures such as air and steam stripping, carbon absorption, biological treatment, ion exchange absorption, chemical treatments and reverse osmosis; (3) soil remediation procedures such as in-situ bioremediation, chemical remediation, soil flushing and physical treatment techniques; (4) procedures for the control of gas emissions and fugitive dust control from surface impoundments and landfills; (5) waste, soil and sediment disposal techniques; (6) monitoring strategies for remediated sites and leak detection strategies; and (7) remediation of leaking underground storage tanks (LUST). (prereq: graduate standing in MSCV program or consent of department chair)
