Hazardous Waste Site Remediation The Engineer’s Perspective O’Brien & Gere Engineers, Inc. More than twenty thousand hazardous waste disposal sites litter the United States. Cleaning them up requires practical, workable solutions that, until now, books have ignored in favor of abstract theory. Hazardous Waste Site Remediation: The Engineer’s Perspective leaves abstraction behind and gives you effective, concrete clean-up procedures formulated from the authors’ evaluation and restoration of over 100 disposal sites, a number of them on the National Priority List. You get the procedures you need to assess site risk, devise remediation strategies, and use the appropriate clean-up technology. This much-needed guide provides first-time coverage of techniques for conducting feasibility studies, determining site safety, modeling ground-water conditions, biologically treating ground water, and removing underground storage tanks. It shows you exactly how to: design and implement each phase of the clean-up plan apply effective remedial technologies, including secure burial cells, incineration, and chemical fixation fix leaking underground storage tanks, a leading cause of ground water contamination collect and analyze air, water, and soil data to determine the degree of the hazard Plus you get all the practical details on noninvasive geophysical investigation methods, site safety plan development, site maintenance and monitoring, and much more. Case studies guide you through each clean-up procedure and help you to avoid costly mistakes and delays. With Hazardous Waste Site Remediation: The Engineer’s Perspective in hand, you’ll be able to develop cost-effective solutions that reduce site risks to acceptable levels. This breakthrough reference should be within arm’s reach of plant managers in charge of site remediation, corporate engineers who plan or review remediation work, government officials who regulate site remediation, and students studying this area of environmental concern.

This handbook comprises an update of volume 1 of the 1984 USEPA document entitled "Review of in-place treatment techniques for contaminated surface soils." The purpose of this handbook is the same as that of the original document - to provide state-of-the-art information on in situ treatment technologies for contaminated soils. Like the previous document, this handbook is written for the use of a varied audience with divers technical backgrounds.... An in situ treatment technology is defined as one that can be applied to treat the hazardous constituents of a waste or contaminated environmental medium where they are located and is capable of reducing the risk posed by these contaminants to an acceptable level or completely eliminating that risk. In situ treatment implies that the waste materials are treated without being physically removed from the ground.... The 1984 document consisted of two volumes. Only volume 1 is being updated by this handbook. The reader can refer to volume 2, however, for a still current and comprehensive discussion of the fundamental properties of soil/waste systems.

"From the Introduction: " The purpose of this program is to identify and assess international technologies that could be utilized for hazardous waste site remediation within the United States. This report summarizes the results of Phase I of this program, which identified international alternative technologies potentially applicable to Superfund site remediation. All remedial technologies identified as a result of the Phase I activities are described in this report. Recommendations are also provided for further study in Phase II which will focus on the most promising international technologies. General Approach The technical approach for Phase I focused on the location, acquisition, and interpretation of existing data, studies, and related documentation for remedial technologies. Data were obtained through a comprehensive literature survey and telephone contracts / interviews with agencies, industries, vendors, research groups, and others involved in the development and marketing of technologies. Emphasis was placed on technologies that have been developed and / or applied in Europe, Japan and Canada, because of the promise that these areas have more advanced hazardous waste programs in place. An important part of the Phase I activity was the assembly and review of information that EPA scientific personnel have obtained in their foreign travel assignments or through contact with foreign consultants or academics. A list of EPA personnel that were contact for input to the Phase I technology identification activity is provided in Section 4, along with non-EPA contacts . . . .

In the late 1970s and early 1980s, our nation began to grapple with the legacy of past disposal practices for toxic chemicals. With the passage in 1980 of the Comprehensive Envir- mental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), commonly known as Sup- fund, it became the law of the land to remediate these sites. The U. S. Department of Defense (DoD), the nation’s largest industrial organization, also recognized that it too had a legacy of contaminated sites. Historic operations at Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps facilities, ranges, manufacturing sites, shipyards, and depots had resulted in widespread contamination of soil, groundwater, and sediment. While Superfund began in 1980 to focus on remediation of heavily contaminated sites largely abandoned or neglected by the private sector, the DoD had already initiated its Installation Restoration Program in the mid-1970s. In 1984, the DoD began the Defense Environmental Restoration Program (DERP) for contaminated site assessment and remediation. Two years later, the U. S. Congress codified the DERP and directed the Secretary of Defense to carry out a concurrent program of research, development, and demonstration of innovative remediation technologies. As chronicled in the 1994 National Research Council report, “Ranking Hazardous-Waste Sites for Remedial Action,” our early estimates on the cost and suitability of existing techn- ogies for cleaning up contaminated sites were wildly optimistic. Original estimates, in 1980, projected an average Superfund cleanup cost of a mere $3.
