Educational Half-day Short Course

Optimization and Monitoring for Remediation of Chlorinated and Related Compounds

Please join us for a half-day short-course on recent technical advances in the characterization and remediation of chlorinated volatile organic compounds in soil and groundwater. Environmental engineers, geologists, hydrogeologists, regulators, site managers, scientists and others within the groundwater remediation community will learn about the current thinking and strategies for the characterization and treatment of chlorinated VOCs and NAPLs.

There is no cost to attened. Lunch is on us and you will receive three (3) PDH credits. Please forward to others that would benefit from attending.
