Thermal DNAPL Source Zone Treatment Impact on a CVOC Plume
by Gorm Heron, John Bierschenk, Robin Swift, Robert Watson, and Michael Kominek
The tetrachloroethene (PCE) source zone at a site in Endicott, New York had caused a dissolved PCE plume. This plume was commingled with a petroleum hydrocarbon plume from an upgradient source of fuel oil. The plume required a system for hydraulic containment, using extraction wells located about 360 m downgradient of the source. The source area was remediated using in situ thermal desorption (ISTD).
