Course Description
Princeton Groundwater's Remediation Course is the most comprehensive course on remediation available.During 41 hours of live classroom instruction, every aspect of remediation is covered including high resolution, three-dimensional hydrogeochemical characterization, Federal/State regulations, and practical design details of all remediation technologies. All aspects of Indoor Air Vapor Intrusion, Petroleum Vapor Intrusion and mitigation are also covered. The course covers many essential topics such as strategies for cost effective solutions, which are not found in any other courses or books
Remediation Course
The course, however, assumes some technical background and experience in contamination problems. Those who have taken Princeton Groundwater's The Groundwater Pollution and Hydrology Course (see it described elsewhere on the website) should be well prepared as this course is the next step.


Who Should Attend
  • Remediation Experts
  • Groundwater Hydrologists
  • Geologists
  • Engineers
  • Chemists


  • Environmental Scientists
  • State/Federal Regulators
  • Project Managers
  • Compliance Program Managers
  • Industrial Site Owners

Course Objective
The objective of this course is to teach remediation from the key methodologies to collect 3D hydrogeochemical data to build a conceptual site model (CSM), through selecting and designing remediation systems based on chemical, geological and biological site conditions and state/federal regulations.

What You Will Learn

  • Practical remediation strategies and options drawn from hundreds of case histories

  • The geological and hydrochemical factors applicable to remedial
    designs for cleaning up soil and groundwater

  • Field methods to fully characterize aquifers, source zones and plumes to allow selection and design of effective remedial measures and set achievable cleanup levels

  • Ability to select remediation systems based on variable hydrogeology, life cycle design, air/water carriers, biodegradation, and monitored natural attenuation for dissolved phase, light and dense non-aqueous phase liquids (NAPLs)

  • Strategic approach to cost effective remedial design

The Remediation Course uniquely integrates the topics of heterogeneous geohydrology, aquifer / source / plume characterization, remediation
technologies / strategies / designs, and computer simulation software.
The result is the acknowledged premier course on remediation.

Course Schedule
With some exceptions, the class generally meets daily from 8:00 A.M. to 11:30 A.M. and from 1:00 P.M. to 4:30 P.M. Monday through Thursday with half-hour coffee breaks at 9:30 A.M. and 2:30 P.M. and lunch from 11:30 A.M. to 1:00 P.M. After short breaks at 4:30 P.M., Monday extends to 6:00 P.M. and Tuesday extends to 7:00 P.M. Due to the exceptional amount of material, after a short break, the class on Wednesday goes to 6:00 P.M., followed by a one hour dinner break and additional lectures from 7:00 P.M. to 9:10 P.M. The course ends on Friday at 11:30 A.M.

Course Materials and Continuing Education Units
Students will receive over 1,200 pages of lecture notes in an attractive binder. In addition, they will be given a certificate of satisfactory completion and qualify to receive 4.0 Continuing Education Units (CEUs). A record is kept of these units and transcripts may be requested at a later date.



Early registration is strongly advised for this popular course. Enrollment is limited and applications will be accepted in the order they are received. To enroll today, click here, or call (813) 964-0800. Most pay by credit card, but if by check, please make it payable to Princeton Groundwater, Inc. The full fee is due two weeks before the first day of the live class unless prior arrangements for invoicing have been made. This fee will be fully refunded if cancellation is received 2 weeks before the course, thereafter 50% of the fee will be refunded or the full amount applied to the next Remediation or Pollution and Hydrology Course. Substitutions may always be made.

Hotel Accommodations
A block of rooms has been reserved at a substantially reduced rate at the Orleans Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas ($40/night, Sunday through Thursday + $20.99 resort fee. $70/night on the weekends). The Hotel encourages individuals to book their reservations online using the Group Reservation ID: PRGK21C and the Hotel's website at www.orleanscasino.com/groups. You must, however, make your reservation at least 1 month before the course to guarantee this special rate. You may also call (702) 365-7111 and identify yourself as being with Princeton Groundwater’s Remediation Course (Group ID: PRGK21C). The room block will be held until one month before the course--get your reservations in early to get the special rate. After that date reservations will be taken on a space and rate availability.
