Course Description:

This seminar provides an overview of basic groundwater hydrology and contaminant fate and transport concepts. The course has been tailored to address issues for practitioners working with the Massachusetts Contingency Plan (MCP) and, as such, will address these pertinent hydrogeological concepts:  

  • How to determine if a Significant Release Migration (SRM) exists, 
  • How to determine if a groundwater contaminant could pose a risk to a surface water receptor (modifying a GW-3 value), 
  • How MCP Leaching Based standards were developed, and 
  • How to use SESOIL/AT123D (analytical model) to determine if soil poses a risk to groundwater receptors.  

In addition, the course includes presentation of an example of fate and transport using BIOSCREEN-AT, an update to EPA’s software, which is housed in a new 3D graphical user interface. The instructor will demonstrate using his laptop; participants will not be asked to perform calculations or download software to participate in the course.
