Training Coordination Team Mission
The OSWER Training Coordination Team was created in 1986 as the OSWER Training Forum to respond to training needs of EPA and state personnel involved in solid and hazardous waste cleanup and emergency response. The members of the forum coordinate their efforts to provide training to EPA, federal, state, and tribal personnel responsible for regulatory and enforcement activities.

Petroleum Vapor Intrusion: Fundamentals of Screening, Investigation, and Management
October 06, 2015 at 01:00 PM EDT
Chemical contaminants in soil and groundwater can volatilize into soil gas and migrate through unsaturated soils of the vadose zone. Vapor intrusion (VI) occurs when these vapors migrate upward into overlying buildings through cracks and gaps in the .... [more] Leaving Trainex

Use and Measurement of Mass Flux and Mass Discharge
October 07, 2015 at 01:00 PM EDT
Most decisions at groundwater contamination sites are driven by measurements of contaminant concentration -- snapshots of contaminant concentrations that may appear to be relatively stable or show notable changes over time. Decisions can be improved .... [more] Leaving Trainex

Remedy Selection for Contaminated Sediments
October 08, 2015 at 01:00 PM EDT
The sediments underlying many of our nation’s major waterways are contaminated with toxic pollutants from past industrial activities. Cleaning up contaminated sediments is expensive and technically-challenging. Sediment sites are unique, complex, and.... [more] Leaving Trainex
