The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency confirmed nearly 3,000 new releases from underground storage tanks (USTs) during fiscal year 2010, bringing the cumulative total to 491,572 releases since 1984. Although progress has been made in cleaning these sites, over 96,000 of them still require remedial action. These UST leaks pose a grave threat to human health and the environment by contaminating groundwater and soil.

This course provides an overview of in-situ groundwater bioremediation, which can effectively degrade organic constituents that are dissolved in groundwater. The course is intended for engineers who wish to expand their knowledge of alternative methods of groundwater treatment.

Specific Knowledge or Skill Obtained

This course teaches the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Initial and detailed evaluation to determine viability of in-situ groundwater bioremediation
  • Influence of site characteristics: hydraulic conductivity, soil type, microbial presence, and groundwater properties
  • Influence of contaminant characteristics: chemical structure, toxicity, and solubility
  • Placement of extraction, injection, and monitoring wells
  • Phases of operation: start-up and normal

Certificate of Completion

You will be able to immediately print a certificate of completion after passing a multiple-choice quiz consisting of 20 questions. PDH credits are not awarded until the course is completed and quiz is passed.
