Additional Information:

This course will cover guiding principles, basic mathematical relationships of groundwater flow, the mechanisms of groundwater contaminant fate and transport, the range of effective soil and groundwater remedial strategies, the groundwater regulatory regime in New Jersey, and the application of a range of groundwater models. The presenters are on the cutting edge of recent developments, including emerging contaminants and regulatory changes.

Program Topics

  • Darcy's Law the basic mathematics of flow-through porous media
  • Basic concepts hydraulic conductivity, transmissivity, well yields
  • Flow to wells in leaky and non-leaky confined aquifers and unconfined aquifers
  • Determination of hydraulic properties of aquifers, theory and solutions of aquifer tests
  • Behavior, transport, and remediation of contaminants in porous media
  • Guidelines for the investigation and remediation of LNAPL and DNAPL
  • Strategies for remediation of groundwater contamination, including state-of-the-art innovative technologies
  • The application to groundwater models for predicting the behavior of groundwater plumes and for optimizing groundwater remedies
  • Major NJ and Federal statutes and regulations governing groundwater and recent developments in the NJDEP's groundwater programs
  • And much more!

Students have the opportunity to sign up for an optional 4th day of class where they will receive personalized instruction devoted to well design and aquifer pumping tests.
