This course has been approved by the LSP Board of Registration for 4.0 hours of Technical/Non-DEP continuing education credits (Course #1699). 

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.

Registration Process:
Once you complete your registration form for the course, you will receive two emails from the LSPA:

  1. Your registration confirmation which also acts as a paid receipt.
