SCS Engineers professional Betsy Powers will be among the individuals teaching at the University of Wisconsin, Madison’s Solid Waste Landfill Design Short Course.
Developing or expanding a successful solid waste landfill requires extensive planning, a clear understanding of landfill engineering practices, and careful technical design and delivery. This course will guide you through the development process from start to finish. Interactive learning with group discussion and idea exchange will be emphasized. Learn about the critical factors of solid waste landfill design, operations, evolving industry issues, and economics from a diverse, highly experienced, and expert course faculty.
After attending this course, you will have a firm grasp of the background and design specifics necessary to compete in this industry, including industry-leading information on the principles and practices of solid waste landfill development, design, construction, and management. Understand practical emerging technologies including polymer-based bentonite composites in geosynthetic clay liners, landfill gas containment and management for emission control and regulatory drivers, design of gas-to-energy projects, management of CCR landfills and impoundments, and characterization and management of industrial residuals.
This course is recommended for:
- Civil engineers and landfill designers
- Landfill owners and operators
- Local, county, and state regulatory agency staff and officials
- Public works professionals and municipal engineers
- Geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineers
- Geological engineers, hydrogeologists, and geoscientists
- Facility managers with on-site disposal cells
- Contractors and estimators
- Geosynthetic manufacturers and product representative
Discounts are available if two or more register from the same organization.
