Increasing implementation of in situ treatment technologies through field-scale performance assessments
Abstract:In situ treatment technologies are important components of subsurface remediation efforts at a wide variety of sites. Too often, however, innovative technologies are not given adequate consideration by consultants, regulators, and site owners due to a lack of conclusive evidence that they will be effective alternatives. Field-scale demonstrations of the efficacy of in situ remediation technologies are important for effective engineering design. These types of projects provide an increase in the accuracy of conceptual models of the governing processes and can elucidate the practical aspects of full-scale implementation. Demonstration projects conducted at the field scale have a number of components necessary for complete assessment of treatment performance. Depending somewhat on the technology, these can include: pre- and posttreatment sampling, detailed site characterization of stratigraphy and hydrogeology, and comparisons between predictions of engineering models and actual performance.
