Classroom Training - Natural Attenuation of Chlorinated Solvents in Groundwater: Principles and Practices

Return to Classroom Training Timeline

ITRC and the Remediation Technology Development Forum (RTDF) teamed up to develop a nationwide training course on natural attenuation of chlorinated solvents in groundwater. National regulatory and industry experts in the field of biotreatment presented the latest developments in natural degradation processes. The physical, chemical, and biological mechanisms for degrading chlorinated solvents in groundwater were the primary focus of the training course. Information on the tools needed to determine the appropriateness of natural attenuation as a remedial alternative to contaminated sites was presented. The course examines the roles of site characterization, modeling, design, monitoring and regulatory interaction in applying natural attenuation and bioremediation. Lecture, case studies, hands-on exercises and structured discussion sessions gave students an interesting and interactive training experience.
