Check-in: 7:00am
Topic: Approaches To Resolving Differences In Professional Judgment In Site Remediation
Location: University Hall
Given the complexity of cleanups, the existence of comingled plumes, land use issues, and the use of guidance documents, etc., a LSRP’s decision on remedial approaches may be challenged or questioned by the public, a peer, a responsible party, or a government agency.  Establishing a process on how to resolve or address these differences is critical to the success of SRRA. This workshop is intended to give the licensed site remediation professional (LSRP), the attorney, the engineer, the environmental consultant and the responsible party, an overview of the various decision points with a cleanup and possible approaches to resolving differences.

Topic: Vapor Intrusion in New Jersey
Location: University Hall
Vapor intrusion (VI) has received increased attention over the last decade as a potential exposure pathway of concern in the investigation and remediation of contaminated sites. Vapors, typically from volatile organic compounds related to spills or releases into the environment, may migrate in the subsurface and along preferential pathways (such as underground utility lines) and potentially impact indoor air quality. The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP's) Vapor Intrusion Technical (VIT) Guidance document provides assistance in the evaluation of this potential exposure pathway and takes the investigator through the various stages of receptor evaluation, VI investigation, mitigation, monitoring, and closure. In this one-day seminar, instructors will present the State's approach to Vapor Intrusion as outlined in the VIT Guidance document.

Topic: The Investigation and Remediation of Sediments
Increasingly, the importance of sediment investigation and remediation have emerged as major issues in environmental remediations. This course will examine the contamination and impacts of sediments at some noteworthy sites. The remediation of sediments is difficult and potentially costly, yet, in some case , valid. Various technologies utilized to remediate sediments will be discussed.
