CHALLENGES RELATED TO REMEDIATION OF MILITARY SITES IMPACTED BY MUNITIONS AND EMERGING CONTAMINANTS
Cox, E. | 2019 Real Property Institute of Canada (RPIC) Federal Contaminated Sites Regional Workshop, 4-5 June, Halifax, Nova Scotia. 28 slides, 2019

Issues involved with cleaning up munition constituents and emerging contaminants at military sites are addressed in this presentation, such as dealing with or unexpectedly encountering unexploded ordnance, munitions, and explosives during remediation. Several case studies of complex sites are presented where emerging contaminants such as perchlorate, RDX, chlorinated solvents, and 1,4-dioxane were remediated in soil and groundwater. http://rpic-ibic.ca/images/2019_FCSRW/presentations/Challenges_Related_to_Remediation_of_Military_Sites_Impacted_by_Munitions_and_Emerging_Contaminants.pdf
