    Overview: This course provides an overview of the Six Scenarios Approach to understanding and predicting metal attenuation in soil and groundwater. The Six Scenarios Approach was developed by U.S. Department of Energy's Savannah River National Laboratory in 2011 to provide a quick and easy framework for improving the assessment and remediation of inorganic contaminated sites. The six scenarios approach is based on the interpretation of site-specific geochemistry and geochemical gradients, in the context of inorganic contaminant idiosyncrasies (e.g., Cr(VI) instability under low redox conditions).

    Overview: This practical and highly acclaimed course provides a comprehensive overview of stormwater pollution chemistry and its applications to stormwater management and treatment. Topics include an overview of stormwater pollutant classes, sources, characteristics, transport and fate, source control, treatment best management practices (BMPs), BMP performance studies, recent research, and emerging technologies. Other topics include the potential for stormwater to cause groundwater and surface water contamination. Participant course evaluations average 4.8 out of 5 (96%) and often praise the instructor for his knowledge, teaching style, and enthusiasm.
