Abstract

A geospatial model used to visualize subsurface data and optimize remedial design was discussed. It was developed to evaluate remedial performance at a complex site where groundwater and soil vapor extraction and treatment technologies were being used to cleanup a DNAPL-source area. It was also used to evaluate remedial performance by tracking changes in dissolved VOC mass in groundwater related to treatment facility operations, source dissolution, and natural attenuation process. The results obtained from the model showed that soil vapor extraction (SVE) was incompatible with anerobic VOC transformation, persumbaly due to the temporary microbial inhibition caused by oxygen influx into the subsurface.
