Hazardous Materials & Hazardous Waste
August 10 Meeting Details
In-Situ Geochemical Stabilization (ISGS) of Creosote DNAPL: 3.5-Acre Process Area at Former Wood-Treating Site
We will present the results of ISGS treatment of creosote dense non-aqueous phase liquids (DNAPLs) at an 86-acre former wood-treating site. The facility operated for 93 years. Subsurface DNAPL impacts in the former Process Area are present from 5 to 67 feet below ground surface (bgs). ISGS entails the use of enhanced sodium permanganate (NaMnO4) reagent for in-situ treatment of DNAPLs. ISGS processes physically encrust NAPLs, thereby stabilizing them and accelerating Remediation by Natural Attenuation (RNA) of dissolved constituents. A detailed subsurface characterization of former Process Area DNAPL impacts was performed in 2012 to strategically target ISGS reagent injections in DNAPL zones. Creosote DNAPL monitoring was performed in 111 locations for 3 years to evaluate pre- and post-performance of the ISGS treatment.
