Demonstration/Validation of Long-Term Monitoring Using Wells Installed by Direct-Push Technologies ( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
An ESTCP sponsored multi-site Long-Term Monitoring (LTM) project has been conducted to determine whether there is significant statistical difference between groundwater monitoring results obtained from direct-push and conventional hollow-stem auger installed wells. Five field sites are included in the study to represent a variety of geologic conditions as well as a cross-section of regulatory domains (e.g., EPA regions and states). Direct-push wells have been installed adjacent to, in well pairs or clusters, existing hollow-stem auger drilled wells. Thirteen sampling events over a five year period (Phase I & II) have been completed at the sites in which groundwater samples have been analyzed for parameters typically examined with long-term site compliance monitoring including chemical concentrations, oxidation-reduction potential (ORP), pH, temperature, conductivity, turbidity, and dissolved oxygen (DO). The target analytes for this project include: PCE, TCE, cis-DCE, trans-DCE, VC, BTEX, DCB, TCA, and MTBE. ANOVA statistical methods have been employed to address a wide range of inherent variables such as well depth, screen length, filter packs, annular sealing, spatial and temporal heterogeneity, groundwater seasonal changes, plume characteristics, and geological conditions. Inorganic data was also collected on an annual basis to assess the performance of the direct-push well for monitored natural attenuation at the five test sites. Additionally, the ESTCP LTM project team partnered with the Interstate Technical Regulatory Council (ITRC) Sampling, Characterization and Monitoring (SCM) team to product a Direct-Push Well Technology Technical/Regulatory Guidance Document and internet training module.
Estimating Cleanup Times Associated With Combining Source-Area Remediation With Monitored Natural Attenuation ( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Under suitable conditions, monitored natural attenuation (MNA) can be a cost-effective strategy for restoring contaminated aquifer systems either as a stand-alone technology or in combination with other engineered remedial actions. However, USEPA guidance specifically requires MNA to achieve site-specific cleanup objectives within a reasonable time frame. Thus, it is necessary to provide estimates of cleanup times whenever MNA is proposed as part of a cleanup strategy. In response, the Natural Attenuation Software (NAS) was co-developed by the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC), U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), and Virginia Tech. NAS is a screening tool designed for estimating time of remediation (TOR) for MNA with varying degrees of source area remediation. Conventional screening tools for MNA are not designed to address source zone remediation options or simulation of plume reduction. The NAS consists of a combination of computational tools implemented in three main interactive modules to provide estimates for: 1) target source concentration required for a plume extent to contract to regulatory limits, 2) time required for contaminants in the source area to attenuate to a predetermined target source concentration, and 3) time required for a plume extent to contract to regulatory limits after source reduction. Natural attenuation processes that NAS models include are advection, dispersion, sorption, non-aqueous phase liquid (NAPL) dissolution, and biodegradation of petroleum hydrocarbons, chlorinated solvents, or any user-specified contaminants or mixtures. NAS can also be used to determine the equilibrium concentrate at any given location following source-zone remediation and when this will occur.
Performance Comparison: Direct-Push Wells Versus Drilled Wells ( Book )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
A comparison between ground water monitoring alternatives (direct-push installed monitoring wells and drilled monitoring wells) is being conducted on the leading edge of a methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) plume located in a shallow semi-perched aquifer (saturated thickness extending 9 to 22 feet (2.7 to 6.7 meters) below ground surface). The purpose of this effort is to determine whether direct-push wells compare favorably with conventional hollow stem auger (HAS) drilled wells. To make this determination, ground water samples were extracted from numerous adjacent direct-push and HAS installed wells over several sampling events. Analysis of variance (ANOVA) statistical techniques were applied to the resulting chemical data to differentiate between the variability attributed to well type, temporal, and spatial factors.
MTBE Remediation Using Hollow Fiber Membrane and Spray Aeration Vacuum Extraction Technologies ( Book )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
This report summarizes the results of a demonstration of selected technologies used to treat groundwater contaminated with dissolved MTBE and other VOCs. The specific technologies include Spray Aeration Vacuum Extraction (SAVE), developed by Remediation Service International (RSI), and Hollow Fiber Membrane (HFM) degasification, developed by the University of California at Santa Barbara. The test was conducted at the Hydrocarbon National Test Site located at the Naval Construction Battalion Center at Port Hueneme, California, between 21-25 June 1999. The project scope consisted of demonstrating the combined SAVE and HFM systems at the field scale for treating groundwater contaminated with MTBE and other gasoline components. The main objectives were to: (1) meet a target remediation goal of 5 ug/L for MTBE (the secondary drinking water standard for California water supplies); (2) quantitatively define the component-by- component performance in terms of removal efficiency and mass transfer coefficient for each technology; (3) evaluate these treatment technologies from a cost-and-performance perspective; and (4) develop a set of recommendations for routine application of this combination of remediation technologies. During the 5-day demonstration effort, approximately 34,200 L (9,000 gallons) of contaminated groundwater was treated while continuously meeting the project's MTBE clean up goal of 5 ug/L. Specific operation and performance details are presented and discussed, as well as suggestions for design improvement.
Natural Attenuation General Data Guide ( Book )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
This guide is a decision-making tool to help remedial project managers (RPMs) determine whether natural attenuation can be used as a remedial option at contaminant release sites. Data requirements and methodology to evaluate the potential for using natural attenuation are presented. For sites where the natural attenuation remedial option is implemented, tables of commonly measured parameters, general data collection rationale, and interpretation guidance are included. This format allows the RPM to recognize data gaps, interpret data, construct a conceptual site model, and develop a sampling and analysis plan for evaluation and monitoring purposes.
