Additional Information:

The fundamental principles of geology, hydrogeology, and chemistry will be presented in terminology that makes it easy to understand… even if your only background is high school chemistry. You will also learn how to use this information when evaluating environmental conditions at your site or property.

Featured Topics

  • Geological discussions will cover earth processes, rock and mineral identification, sediments, soils, and man-made fill materials.
  • Hydrogeology discussions will cover the water cycle, ground water flow/movement, well construction methods and ground water supply development and protection.
  • Chemistry discussions will cover natural ground water chemistry, common pollutants, the migration of contaminants through soil and ground water, sampling techniques, analytical methods and the interpretation of laboratory data.

This course is appropriate for those who: develop, review or use hydrogeologic reports; purchase environmental services; or make decisions regarding environmental policies. This seminar will also provide valuable information for real estate professionals involved in property appraisals or transactions.

Target Audience: General Public
