This three-hour course provides general guidance for the design, installation and reporting of borings, monitoring wells and other associated geotechnical activities and devices at hazardous, toxic and radioactive waste (HTRW) project sites. To accurately characterize a HTRW site, the procedures for drilling, well installation and sampling must be standardized, documented and followed concisely. Only chemical issues related to HTRW work are covered in this course. Biological issues are discussed in other sources as referenced below.
This course is based primarily on chapters 1 - 8 of the US Army Corps of Engineers Manual, "Monitoring Well Design, Installation and Documentation at Hazardous, Toxic and Radioactive Waste Sites", EM 1110-1-4000 (1998 Edition, 51 pages).
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
