GOwen Environmental and the Association for Environmental Health and Sciences present: 10th Annual Contaminated And Hazardous Waste Site Management Course.


Theory, Practice & Outdoor Field Demonstrations of Site Characterization and Remediation Equipment & Technologies to be showcased in Toronto, Ontario, Canada September 26-30, 2005.

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA June 8, 2005 --/WORLD-WIRE/-- The 10th annual event has grown and evolved over the years to be known as the world’s most comprehensive one week indoor-outdoor course, covering all issues related to managing subsurface contamination, from theory to practice. The course has been filled to capacity the past 10 years. Information about registration, the course instructors, agencies, associations, companies and magazines involved in the course are all available at:

The 15 instructors in this course, along with the many technology demonstrators, and computer workshop coordinators will provide participants with unique access to a very broad base of practical experience and an excellent opportunity to network with leading professionals.

This knowledge will be coupled with a hands-on approach to understanding the tools and techniques for managing contaminated sites. Some experience is helpful, but not necessary, as the course teaches basic principles before addressing more advanced topics.

Choose either 3 or 5 days of in-depth discussions by 15 leading environmental, soil, sediment and groundwater experts representing academia, consulting, and government from across North America. These experts will provide a comprehensive and unbiased overview of hydrogeology and geochemical principles, site assessment procedures, risk assessment and risk management tools, remediation technologies, and management issues relating to contaminated and hazardous waste sites.

3 evening hands-on workshops on computer modeling and environmental management support software. The workshops will start on the Monday night and will incorporate established and innovative computer modeling and support software used in groundwater characterization and remediation (Visual MODFLOW); risk assessment (RBCA); environmental decision support; remedial action cost engineering requirements (RACER); and contaminated site management.

1,200 page notebook and resource CD-ROM.

1 half-day of hands-on outdoor technical demonstrations on Characterization and Remediation Technologies.

2 networking lunches

4.7 Continuing Education Units (CEUs)
Advanced registration is strongly advised. Due to the hands-on nature of this course (demonstrations, workshops, and lectures), enrolment is limited and applications will be accepted on a first come first served basis.
