ENVE 417 - Contaminant Hydrogeology

(3 credits)
Hydrogeology is the study of fluid flow in the earth’s subsurface. In this course, the concepts, equations and data collection techniques of hydrogeology are combined with the principles of environmental chemistry in order to understand the fate of contaminants in the subsurface and to explain the most commonly employed remediation strategies. The technical content of the course is augmented with an overview of the regulatory structure that governs most soil and groundwater remediation projects. Participants will learn to use a groundwater transport simulation software package and will use the software to complete a significant design project. Prerequisite(s): ENVE 413 . Spring.
