This two day seminar provides scientific information on contaminated site assessment and remediation. It focuses on cost effective approaches, methodologies, and technologies.
- Course Outline
The environmental condition of property is an important issue in real estate transactions. Buyers and sellers must be aware of potential environmental liabilities for contaminated soil and groundwater, regulatory non-compliance and buried wastes. Case studies, which are included and distributed as part of this seminar, are based on real projects to reinforce your understanding of the concepts and methodologies.
To provide participants with in-depth knowledge of site assessment and remediation methodologies.
Faculty: Dr. Nasrat Hijazi, President, TDA Associates & Professor, Department of Physical & Environmental Sciences, University of Toronto Scarborough.
