To initiate the evaluation of the soil washing process, MTARRI designed and carried out a laboratory program to determine the applicability of the process and the conditions that would remove both the organic and inorganic contaminants from the Basin F materials to yield a clean soil that could be placed in a fill on-site. The process was then proven by a demonstration run, at the bench-scale. MTARRI had previously shown that the soil washing process could remove organics and inorganics from soils however, no work had been done with a material having the particular contaminants contained in Basin F. Therefore, a laboratory development program was required to establish the necessary physical and chemical conditions that would remove these contaminants from the Basin F material.
