Groundwater contamination from fossil derived fuels is widespread throughout the United States. A wealth of scientific information and conventional technology are available to treat conventional fuel hydrocarbons like benzene, toluene, ethyl benzene, and xylenes (BTEX). Substantially less is known about fuel constituents such as methyl-tert-butyl ether (MTBE) and tert-butyl alcohol (TBA) and other oxygenates which are often added to gasoline to increase octane ratings and to reduce harmful, air polluting combustion by products.

This comprehensive two-day course introduces students to a variety of MTBE and TBA contaminated groundwater topics including: chemical, physical and biological characteristics; characterization; site assessment; remediation technologies; and case studies. The MTBE team has assembled a top-notch group of instructors offering both theoretical and practical information about MTBE and TBA in groundwater.
Students can expect to increase their understanding of groundwater related site characterization and remediation issues, especially as it relates to regulator acceptance and successful application of innovative technology.
This training is cosponsored by American Petroleum Institute, Colorado Department of Labor and Employment, Division of Oil and Public Safety, Long Island Groundwater Institute, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
