This program will show you how to clean up an environmentally sensitive area in a cost-effective and efficient manner. Given a range in environmental settings (from ditches to urbanized estuaries), students will be taught how to select the proper remedial method (e.g., capping, dredging, bank stabilization) based on the source of the contaminant, practicability, cost, intrusiveness, and long-term effectiveness. Technical aspects will include remedial design, specification of materials and equipment, and coordinating with contractors. Case studies will be used to illustrate how the responsible party selected the appropriate remedy, coordinated with regulatory agencies (e.g., NJDEP, USEPA, USFWS), and monitored long-term effectiveness
