Submitted by Contaminated Site Course Information

Contaminated and Hazardous Waste Site Management
Theory, Practice & Outdoor Field Demonstrations Course
September 20-24, 2004 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

GOwen Environmental and the Association for Environmental Health and
Sciences are conducting the Contaminated and Hazardous Waste Site Management
Course.  Over the last nine years, the Course has received support and
sponsorship from major environmental associations world-wide and been
attended by individuals from over 30 countries.  The instructors represent
academia, government, and the private sector; all are leaders in their
respective fields.  This framework provides for an unbiased transfer of
information that provides individuals who own, regulate, investigate,
remediate or are impacted by contaminated properties with a solid
theoretical and practical foundation in contaminated site management.  The
management of these sites is a multi-disciplinary task.  This course
integrates all the disciplines necessary to successfully, efficiently and
economically manage or make decisions regarding these sites. The course will
provide individuals who manage, regulate, investigate, remediate or are
impacted by contaminated properties with a solid theoretical and practical
foundation in contaminated and hazardous waste site management. The fifteen
course instructors are recognized as the leading experts and teachers in the
field from academia to private industry and government in North America.
The instruction and knowledge will be coupled with a hands-on approach to
understanding the tools and techniques for managing these sites.  This will
be accomplished through outdoor workshops and demonstrations and indoor case
studies and computer workshops.

This course is an investment.  It will provide you or your associates with
unparalleled technical information and applied knowledge in contaminated and
hazardous waste site management.

Course Overview

         3 or 5 days of in-depth discussions by 15 leading environmental,
