Description

Improving Our Understanding of Dissolved Groundwater Plume Sources at Petroleum-Impacted Sites Through Physical Model Mathematical Model and Field- Improving Our Understanding of Dissolved Groundwater Plume Sources at Petroleum-Impacted Sites Through Physical Model, Mathematical Model, and Field- The overarching objective of this three-year project is to gain a better understanding of the storage and release of dissolved chemicals from the three general types of sources most often found at petroleum spill sites: 1) nonaqueous phase liquid (NAPL)-impacted transmissive zones, 2) NAPL matrix storage in low flow zones, and 3) dissolved chemical matrix storage in low flow zones. It is expected that improving our understanding of these will lead to more cost-effective decision-making at petroleum spill sites, especially as it pertains to the formulation and execution of corrective active plans to address unacceptable groundwater impacts. For example, it is likely that all three of these source types will be present initially at many sites and it is possible that the most cost-effective corrective action plans will involve a sequence of activities/treatments specific to each source type, rather than prolonged application of a single technology until an acceptable performance endpoint is reached.
