CHARACTERIZATION AND REMEDIATION OF FRACTURED ROCK
Interstate Technology and Regulatory Council (ITRC), FracRx-1, 2017

Contaminated fractured rock sites have often been considered too complex to be remediated, so site managers default to simply containing the contamination. This web-based document provides an introduction to the unique puzzle faced when investigating and remediating fractured rock sites. The guide explains the processes controlling contaminant fate and transport in fractured rock; addresses significant advances in skills, tools, and lessons learned in understanding contaminant flow and transport in fractured rock environments; describes how to develop a useful conceptual site model; and discusses how to identify strategies to remediate contamination in fractured rock. http://fracturedrx-1.itrcweb.org/
