This research project developed and demonstrated a remediation design and performance assessment protocol to assess the suitability of a remediation technology and predict remedial performance and its associated uncertainty. This protocol couples characterization of the contaminant source with down-hole treatability testing and mathematical modeling. Project results were integrated into a source zone remediation feasibility framework that provides an efficient method to perform site characterization and obtain screening-level forecasts of site behavior, with and without the implementation of treatment remedies. Application of the framework to a realistic synthetic field scenario demonstrated its feasibility and potential benefits during conceptual site model refinement and remedial site management. https://www.serdp-estcp.org/content/download/49444/471415/file/ER-2311%20Final%20Report.pdf
