When dealing with groundwater remediation as with most things in life there are various options. Do you want to treat in situ? Do you want to extract the water and dispose off site? Or extract and treat on site?
Choosing the right treatment technique can require a lot of site investigation and data collection to decide upon the correct treatment. Once a treatment has been decided upon, approval and licences from local authorities may need to be obtained. Site management and monitoring/sampling regimes will need to be organised. Continual data collection, reporting, a final validation and a final summary report completed.
Soilution’s most used remediation techniques include :-
- Pump and treat
- Extraction and disposal
- Chemical oxidation
- Air Sparging
- Vapour extraction
Common practice can be to install an Impermeable barrier to contain or restrict contaminant migration. Ultimately this will not remove the contaminant so a treatment system may need to be installed along with the barrier.
