GROUNDWATER REMEDIATION IN LOW-PERMEABILITY SETTINGS: THE EVOLVING SPECTRUM OF PROVEN AND POTENTIAL
Horst, J., M. Schnobrich, R. Oesterreich, and J. Munholland.
Groundwater Monitoring and Remediation 39(1):11-19(2019)

Low-permeability aquifer settings continue to pose significant challenges for owners and their consultants. In this column, what constitutes a low-permeability setting is discussed with exploration of a selection of technologies that reflect both demonstrated and promising new approaches across a spectrum of strategies ranging from complete treatment to source reduction to flux control. Finally, what this current state of technology means to the practice of restoration in low-permeability settings is considered, with an eye toward contaminant flux reduction/control versus complete treatment. https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1111/gwmr.12316.
