Applied Hydrogeologic Site Characterization and Monitoring Well Construction for Environmental Professionals
Hosted by Northwest Environmental Training Center

This three day training course is intended to introduce environmental professionals to Applied Hydrologeologic principles and prepare the attendee to manage and develop Site Characterization activities. These principles will be presented by the trainer in a clear manner to students who have little to no previous knowledge of hydrogeology. Conceptual real-world discussions and visual aids will help in dispelling common misconceptions of groundwater. Hands on exercises will allow the student to apply this conceptual understanding to practical use. In-class exercises will include calculating hydraulic gradient, flow direction, flow volume, and flow velocity; water table contouring, designing monitoring wells, constructing geologic profiles from well logs, and investigating contaminated sites based on case study data. The course is structured in a manner that the student will be able to understand hydrogeologic reports, prepare work plans and implement field studies. The attendee will further understand regional groundwater hydrology and how it relates to their local environment. The class is intended for environmental professionals who are not hydrogeologists, but would benefit from a practical understanding of environmental hydrogeology.

Tuition: $595 (*$495 reduced tuition is available for Native American tribes; government employees; nonprofits; students; and NAEP, NEBC, NWAEP members). For general information contact Kristine Robson by telephone at 206-762-1976 (Fax: 206-762-1979) or via e-mail at
