This course has been submitted to the LSP Board for 4.0 hours of Technical/Non-DEP continuing education credits (Course #TBD). This course will also be submitted to CT for LEP credit and NY for PDH credit.  

Course Description:
The primary objective of this four hour course is to provide insight for LSPs into the existence and differences in the state of the art (SOA) and state of the practice (SOP) in remedial design. The differences significantly impact the certainty of success and costs for design and implementation of remediation systems. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, remedial technologies gained traction in the United States. There has been a consistent trend in new technology development from that time. Shortly after the introduction of a new technology, market pressures cause a divergence in the base science and engineering behind the technologies (SOA) and the implementation of the technologies (SOP). The consequence of this divergence is a decline in certainty and potential increase in overall lifecycle costs. In this course, we will discuss the SOA vs SOP in the remedial design for several remedial technologies, including:

• Soil vapor extraction;
• In situ chemical oxidation / reduction;
• Enhanced bioremediation; and
• Thermal enhancements.

Several case studies will be presented for each technology.
