This is the most thorough and up-to-date volume available on this important subject, and it is a must-have for any environmental engineer or scientist working in groundwater remediation. Author Bios Nicholas P.

Cheremisinoff is a chemical engineer with more than 40 years of industry, R&D and international business experience. The emphasis in this guide is on the use of remediation by natural attenuation for petroleum hydrocarbon constituents where ground water is impacted.

Though soil and ground water impacts are often linked, this guide does not address natural attenuation in soils separate from ground water or in situations where soils containing constituents of concern exist without an associated ground.

Groundwater samples containing none of the three hydrocarbons served as part of the control in this work. Nine plastic containers were each filled with 90 mL groundwater sample of known hydrocarbon level for each of the contaminant in replicates of by: 3. Each issue features papers containing cutting-edge information on treatment technology, columns by industry experts, news briefs, and equipment news.

GWMR plays a unique role in advancing the practice of the groundwater monitoring and remediation field by providing forward-thinking research with practical solutions. including free-phase and dissolved hydrocarbons as well as significant bound-hydrocarbon mass at this manufacturing site.

Remediation efforts conducted for nearly a decade included excavation, free-phase hydrocarbon recovery, groundwater treatment, bio-venting, high vacuum dual phase extraction (HVDPE) and chemical oxidation.

However, a free-phase. The hydrocarbons spread horizontally on the groundwater surface thereby causing extensive ground waters contamination (Plohl et al. Hydrocarbon contamination of the air, soil, freshwater (surface water and groundwater) especially by PAHs has drawn public concerns because many PAHs are toxic, mutagenic, and carcinogenic (Bumpus William B.

White, in Groundwater Hydrology of Springs, Light, nonaqueous phase liquids. Light, nonaqueous phase liquids (LNAPLs) are slightly soluble organic compounds that float on water. Gasoline, diesel fuel, home heating oil, and related Manual for remediation of groundwater containing dissolved and free phase hydrocarbons book hydrocarbons are.

Petroleum vapor intrusion (PVI) is a subset of vapor intrusion (VI) and is the process by which volatile petroleum hydrocarbons (PHCs) released as vapors from light nonaqueous phase liquids (LNAPL), petroleum-contaminated soils, or petroleum-contaminated groundwater migrate through the vadose zone and into overlying buildings.

Hydrocarbon-impacted groundwater and free-phase hydrocarbons (FPH) were seeping into a series of canyons within areas 2, 3 and 5 at a Texas refinery. The company hired Burns & McDonnell to capture the groundwater and FPH.

Our solution separated the substances and recycled them to the refinery for treatment and/or processing. biological processes within soil and groundwater. Under certain conditions, NA can be applied for remediation and/or management of contaminants in soil and groundwater.

However, in order to manage the risks associated with this strategy, the NA processes need to be monitored. This phenomenon is called monitored natural attenuation or MNA. The separated groundwater containing dissolved contaminants can then be routed through one or more water treatment components, such as air stripping or liquid phase granular activated carbon (GAC) to reduce the contaminant concentrations to levels meeting applicable regulatory criteria for discharge to storm sewer or POTW.

Additional treatment. Multi-Phase Extraction Technology for Remediation. Abs: Multi-Phase Extraction (MPE) is a rapidly emerging, in-situ remediation technology for simultaneous extraction of vapor phase, dissolved phase and separate phase contaminants from vadose zone, capillary fringe, and saturated zone soils and groundwater.

It is a modification of soil vapor extraction (SVE) and is most commonly applied in. Chlorinated solvents can exist and migrate in multiple phases depending on how they were released and the site conditions present.

These include a vapor phase in unsaturated soils, dissolved phase in groundwater, and non-aqueous phase liquids (NAPL) in the subsurface. Most chlorinated solvents are denser than water and hydrophobic. (ITRC ). This technology requires a simple operation system.

Targeted contaminants include non-aqueous phase liquid (NAPL), light and dense, and a wide range of dissolved contaminants. Pumping Wells. When using pumping wells, the goal is to modify the groundwater gradient to slow down or stop the migration of the contaminated plume.

During the s and s, a better understanding of PHC biodegradation in groundwater led to the development of monitored natural attenuation, a remediation approach that involves no external inputs and has now been used successfully to address groundwater contamination at many leaking UST sites (Wilson et al.,; Bedient et al., ).

Multi-phase extraction (MPE) is a technology designed to simultaneously remove any combination of light non-aqueous phase liquid (LNAPL), groundwater, and vapor.

Treatment by MPE targets remediation of the vadose (or unsaturated) zone, as well as the difficult to treat capillary/smear zone and shallow saturated zone where a large percentage of.

The Conceptual Site Model summary forms and worksheets contain the information necessary to determine the applicability of soil screening levels (SSLs) to the site, and help focus data collection efforts to gather information needed to calculate SSLs.

Bioaugmentation for Groundwater Remediation Stroo, H.F., A. Leeson, and C.H. Ward (eds). The aqueous phase is enriched in organic acids, phenolic compounds, single- and double-ring nitrogen, sulfur, and oxygen containing compounds, and single- and double-ring aromatic hydrocarbons.

Dissolved Phase Risk from NAPL Most models do not represent NAPLs Standard approach Source is dissolved concentration in groundwater in contact with NAPLs using Raoults Law: C = x S where C = effective solubility x = mole fraction S = free phase solubility Example (petrol): Mole fraction of benzene in mixture (%).

groundwater acceptance criteria and liquid phase hydrocarbons is given in Section of Module 4. Potable use criteria may be used as a conservative default for uses not explicitly considered as part of this module.

Particular reference has been made to the following documents: • Ministry of Health, “. This report advises DOE on technologies and strategies for cleaning up three types of contaminants in groundwater and soil: (1) metals, (2) radionuclides, and (3) dense nonaqueous-phase liquids (DNAPLs), such as solvents used in manufacturing nuclear weapons components.

1 Metals and DNAPLs are common not only in the weapons complex but also at. One limitation is the fact that because biodegradation occurs only in the aqueous phase, it is not suitable for direct remediation of free-phase DNAPL sources.

In addition, the dechlorination of highly chlorinated hydrocarbons produces metabolites that, if not themselves degraded, are more mobile and more toxic than the original compound.

The ultimate aim of this study was to develop a methodology to assess the movement and remediation of hydrocarbons in the subsurface with the use of a numerical model, to improve the management of areas contaminated by these compounds.

This includes the migration and delineation of the free phase and dissolved plume. In addition, once source zone treatment is complete, one option being considered for treatment of the dissolved phase plume is directed groundwater recirculation (Suthersan et al.

), which. delineated dissolved phase plume, as best as known, and within the property boundaries of the site, preferably near the point of origin.

There must be no presence of liquid phase hydrocarbons, including a sheen or emulsion on the purged ground water. The purged ground water may not be land applied during saturated or frozen ground. Phase Distribution In The Subsurface The petroleum hydrocarbon constituents that comprise free product may partition into four phases in the subsurface—vapor (in soil gas), residual (adsorbed onto soil particles including organic matter), aqueous (dissolved in water), and free or separate (liquid hydrocarbons).

Assuming ground water seepage velocities of 1 to 11 feet/day, a foot plume width and an average dissolved benzene concentration of 15 mg/L across a foot vertical thickness, the mass removal rate of natural attenuation ranges from – 10, lbs/year ( 1, gallons/year) velocities of 1 to 11 feet/day, a foot.

groundwater/Light Non-Aqueous Phase Liquid (LNAPL) recovery system and an inland soil vapor extraction (SVE) system. These systems were designed to remove free-phase LNAPL and dissolved petroleum hydrocarbons from the groundwater, and residual-phase petroleum hydrocarbons existing in the vadose zone at Plant 1 (Figure 1).

remediation phase, the average pore velocity of groundwater used in the simulation was 50 m yr-1 (13,7 cm d-1). Due to the relatively high ground-water velocity during the remediation phase, the diffusion component of the hydrodynamic disper-sion coefficient was ignored, because it was three orders of magnitude lower than the mechanical.

Recovered water exhibiting dissolved phase and/or free phase hydrocarbons above regulatory levels needs to be treated to within applicable guidelines prior to discharge. The method of treatment used at the Giant Bloomfield Refinery for the removal of dissolved phase hydrocarbons is air stripping.

Groundwater Remediation Systems for Hydrocarbon Contamination. Sometimes called pumpless groundwater remediation systems, oil skimming is the lowest cost way to remove hydrocarbon contamination from groundwater.

Oil skimming alone may clean water to acceptable levels or be used as a pre-filter treatment.During delineation, additional non-LUST petroleum impacts were identified at the Site.

This other portion of the Site was enrolled in the State’s Voluntary Remediation Program (VRP). Oil skimmers were installed in the new VRP area to access the feasibility of removing the Free Phase Hydrocarbons (FPH).
