ENVS 440 - Solid Waste/Air Quality Management and Lab

(4 cr) An applied course focusing on solid waste standards, regulations, and the nature of solid waste and the management, monitoring, and placement criteria employed in landfill siting. Air quality standards and regulations, pollutant composition, and monitoring of pollution sources will constitute the second aspect of the course. Non-point source pollutants for air and solid waste will be considered as well as the more traditional isolated point sources. The course will include site visits and presentations by experts in specific areas of solid waste and air quality management. This course provides the student with an awareness of criteria employed in management of solid waste and air pollution, two critical areas of waste management.
