ITRC Connecting the Science to Managing LNAPL Sites a 3 Part Series
04/07/2020
Internet Seminar
The newly updated LNAPLs (Light Non-Aqueous Phase Liquids) 3-part training course series is based on the ITRC guidance: LNAPL Site Management: LCSM Evolution, Decision Process, and Remedial Technologies (LNAPL-3, 2018) and focuses on connecting the science to managing LNAPL sites and helping you: build upon your understanding of LNAPL behavior in the subsurface (Part 1), develop your LNAPL conceptual site model and LNAPL remedial goals (Part 2), and select/implement LNAPL technologies (Part 3). After this training series, the expectation is that you will have the skills and understanding to use ITRC science-based resources to improve decision making at your LNAPL sites. For regulators and other government agency staff, this improved understanding can hopefully be incorporated into your own LNAPL programs. It is expected that participants will attend this 3-part training series in sequence.

Heat Enhanced Hydrolysis of Energetic Compounds and Field Results
04/08/2020
Internet Seminar
The USACE Omaha District implemented a low temperature thermal pilot study to evaluate the effects of in situ heating to enhance the hydrolysis of munition constituents (MCs) found in soil. Heating of vadose zone soils is occurring through the application of electrical resistance heating (ERH) at sub-steaming temperatures. The site was established to receive and store ammunition and was placed into inactive status in 1967. The area to be targeted by the pilot study is a former leach bed, contaminated with munition compounds, which include hexahydro-1,3,5-trinitro-1,3,5-trazine (RDX), trinitrotoluene (TNT), dinitrotoluene (DNT), and pentaerythritol tetranitrate (PETN). The treatment volume soil was heated to an average of 80°C over a period of about two months starting in July 2019 and maintained temperature for four additional months. Following four months of heating, soil samples were collected in November 2019. An additional round of soil sampling occurred after six months of heating in January 2020. The presentation will focus on the innovative approach to enhancing hydrolysis, results of low temperature ERH remediation, including MC data from various confirmation soil sampling events, and lessons learned when implementing a low temperature thermal remedy.

NARPM Presents...Stand and Deliver Effective Presentations
04/16/2020
Internet Seminar
This webinar will provide participants with guidelines on how to make better presentations to the public, their peers, or management. The webinar will help to improve your presentation skills and provide you with tools and techniques to be an interesting and effective presenter. The webinar is intended to help participants increase their comfort in public speaking, control and connect with their audience, handle audience participation, and ultimately deliver the message and take-away points of training courses they are planning to instruct. The webinar will teach participants how to manage nerves, voice, gestures, transitions, visual aids, and content. The webinar also addresses how to manage the audience to include difficult participants, the solicitation of questions, and the response to questions and will include techniques for adapting to diverse audiences.
