Review of In-Place Treatment Techniques for Contaminated Surface Soils - Volume 1: Technical Evaluation
This two-volume report presents information on in-place treatment technologies applicable to contaminated soils at shallow depths. This volume discusses the selection of the appropriate in-place treatment technology for a particular site and provides specific information on each technology. Volume 2 provides background information and relevant chemical data. Selection of in-place treatment technologies follows the process outlined in the National Contingency Plan. The type of in-place treatment (extraction, immobilization, degradation, attenuation, or reduction of volatiles) is determined on the basis of information available from the remedial investigation. Selection of a specific technology involves assessment of waste, soil, and site-specific variables. The technology is implemented if it is considered more cost-effective in comparison with the other alternatives.
