Only Contaminated Sites Management Training You Will Ever Need!
Up the Mess (Excerpt from ECO Canada - Newsletter)
Canadian contaminated sites sector has grown quickly over the past few years,
driven by a combination of regulatory and economic pressures. In 2008, ECO Canada's
Contaminated Sites Report - When Supply Does Not Meet Demand - affirmed that between
2004 and 2019, the federal government would commit up to $4 billion to clean up
properties that it owns or that fall under federal responsibility. This includes
more than 4,400 federal contaminated sites as well as 28,000 non-federal properties.
conjunction with high profile cases such as the BP oil spill, these industry-wide
changes have led to heightened awareness on issues relating to contaminated sites,
encouraging countries around the world to develop and implement stricter guidelines
and standards for the investigation, mitigation and remediation of contaminated
sites. However, like most environmental work, the skills needed to clean up these
sites are multidisciplinary and require a unique set of cross-sectoral competencies
are a number of environmental training facilities currently operating in Canada,
but GOwen ENVIRONMENTAL is the only facility in the world that offers a one week
indoor-outdoor course covering all issues related to managing subsurface contamination,
from theory to practice. The fifteen instructors leading the course come from
all across North America with backgrounds in academia, private industry and government,
and are recognized as leading experts and educators in their respective fields.
course is a joint project between GOwen ENVIRONMENTAL, the Association for Environmental
Health and Sciences and the International Association of Hydrogeologists and was
founded to provide leading-edge environmental training and networking through
courses, conferences and workshops. This year will mark the 16th anniversary of
its annual Contaminated and Hazardous Waste Site Management Course, a comprehensive
course that provides a solid theoretical and practical foundation in contaminated
site management. The course integrates several different disciplines and has been
developed specifically for individuals who manage, regulate, investigate, remediate
or are impacted by contaminated sites.

Great Course in Toronto !!
go to www.contaminatedsite.com to check-out the course coming-up in Toronto. This
is truly a world-class course .... and this year it is held right in Canada! Perry
Sarvas and Kip Hawley both attended and it was the best training they have ever
had. This year looks even better! Feel free to call Perry or Kip if you want a
participants perspective. I strongly recommend this course, especially for
those who want some in-depth contaminated or hazardous waste site management training,
contaminated site program or project management or risk-assessment. If you
having been waiting a long time for training, I think you will be very pleased
with this course.... fill-out your 15-11 form today since there is relatively
little time to process your request!
Ministry of Environment & Energy
the last 35 years, countries around the world have developed and implemented guidelines
and standards for the investigation, mitigation, and remediation of contaminated
properties. In all sectors of the economy, high profile contaminated sites,
human health issues, litigation, and enormous cleanup costs have heightened the
awareness of environmental issues relating to contaminated properties. Contaminated
soil, sediment or groundwater in prime real estate and sensitive ecological locations
has resulted in the loss of millions of dollars due to lack of development or
ineffective management of these properties.
ENVIRONMENTAL was founded to provide specialized and leading-edge
environmental training and networking through courses, conferences,
and workshops. This Course was developed to provide a medium for
the transfer of unbiased information and technology to clean
up contaminated properties. The Course has evolved over the last
eighteen years into an internationally recognized solution-based
training program that brings together participants, regulators,
consultants, and academics from across the globe.
Course is firmly established as far as content and instruction.
The Course is sponsored by one of the largest environmental associations
in North America and largest groundwater resource protection associations
in the world. Over the last twenty-five years, the Course has
received support and sponsorship from major environmental associations
world-wide. The instructors represent academia, government, and
the private sector; all are leaders in their respective fields.
This framework provides for an unbiased transfer of information
that provides individuals who own, regulate, investigate, remediate
or are impacted by contaminated properties with a solid theoretical
and practical foundation in contaminated site management. The
management of these sites is a multi-disciplinary task. This course
integrates all the disciplines necessary to successfully, efficiently
and economically manage or make decisions regarding these sites.
participants will receive theoretical and practical foundations, as well as
important information regarding regulatory compliance aspects of contaminated
site management. 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
is the only course being offered globally that covers all issues
related to managing subsurface contamination, from theory to practice.
The Course's 10+ instructors are from academia, private industry,
and government in North America and are recognized as leading
experts and teachers in their respective fields. These instructors
will provide attendees with access to a broad base of practical
experience and an excellent opportunity to network with leading

part of the education process, selected case histories of soil,
sediment and groundwater investigations, remediations and risk assessments
will be studied to further emphasize the practical aspects of each
lecture topic. While a good number of 2-3 day short courses are
offered on some aspects of contaminated site management, there are
few one-week courses offering the opportunity for in-depth learning
of a more complete range of issues. The extent of recent developments
in the science and technology of contaminated and hazardous waste
site management is such that one would be required to attend many
short courses in order to be brought up to speed. Our intensive
course with additional demonstrations, is an attractive alternative
for busy professionals.
days-long course allows for a half-day of seminars to demonstrate
the various site characterization and remediation technologies currently
being used on sites across North America today.
