When a piece of property has been identified as contaminated, site assessment activities take place to characterize the impacts to the site, in terms of the lateral and vertical extent and the nature and concentration of the contaminants. Then a remedial action plan is prepared, often after a pilot scale test of the chosen technology at the site. The plan and tests will revolve around the idea of selecting the single best technology for a site, whether in terms of cost, effectiveness, or regulatory approval. Other technologies may be considered, but one is selected as the most appropriate. However, the remedial action plan for one site in Ohio recommended not one technology but five, in a combination that represented the most cost-effective and reasonable approach to remediation of the site.

The subject site is a former gasoline service station located in southwest Ohio. The site is currently used as an automobile service garage. The topography of the site is generally flat, and the site is approximately 1.75 miles north of the Little Miami River. The land slopes gently to the south, and there is a prominent hill with exposed bedrock located approximately half a mile north of the site. The properties adjacent to the site are mostly commercial with some residential properties to the north and west (Figure 1). The site is located in a designated sensitive area.

All underground storage tanks (USTs) and associated piping and equipment were removed from the site in May 1993. The former UST location and most of the remainder of the site were paved with asphalt in May 1998 to eliminate infiltrations and to prevent short-circuiting of the SVE system.
