Introduction to hydrogeological risk assessment for Contaminated Land

Hydrogeological Risk Assessment Training

The Environment Agency’s Remedial Targets Methodology and Worksheet provide a framework for assessing the risks to controlled waters from land contamination, and for deriving site-specific remedial targets for contaminated soils and groundwater where those risks are unacceptable.

This is an introductory course equally suited for those without any chemistry background or those who require a refresher course relevant to their current job activities.

The courses will be of relevance to:

Regulatory and local authority staff involved with contaminated land issues
Problem holders and developers needing a more in-depth understanding of contaminated land issues
Anyone producing contaminated land reports
Anyone reviewing third party reports

The course will teach delegates

• The importance of the conceptual site model (CSM) for assessing risks to controlled waters from land contamination
• The tiered framework for assessing risks of pollution of controlled waters from land contamination
• Methodology for deriving remedial targets for soils to protect water resources
• When to use the remedial targets worksheet – applicability of the models to the CSM
• How to use the remedial targets worksheet – parameterisation; prediction; and sensitivity

By the end of the course you should be:

• Familiar with the sources of information available to develop an initial CSM for assessing risks to controlled waters from land contamination
• Aware of the tiered framework for assessing risks to controlled waters from land contamination and deriving remedial targets
• Aware of the types of solute fate and transport models used in each tier of the remedial targets worksheet, along with their assumptions and limitations
• Aware of the input parameters required by the remedial targets worksheet
All delegates will be issued with a Certificate of Attendance – which should be retained and used to provide evidence of CPD activity when required by employers or professional bodies.
