Abstract:

The Report on the Treatability Test of Groundwater by Ultraviolet UVOxidation has been prepared for the U.S. Army Environmental Center USAEC, to document the results of the treatability test performed at Umatilla Depot Activity UMDA, Hermiston, Oregon, during the Site 4 Explosive Washout Lagoons pumping tests. It has been prepared for the USAEC under the Base Realignment and Closure BRAC Program, and is part of the Remedial InvestigationFeasibilty Study RIFS activities being performed at UMDA. The objective of the treatability test was to gather data to evaluate whether UVozone is a feasible alternative for effectively removing explosives from groundwater at Site 4. The report presents discussions on the treatment technology, field setup, samplinganalyses, results, and useability. The results indicate that most explosives were effectively treated by UVozone, but that I ,3,5-trinitrobenzene 1 ,3,5-TNB was difficult to treat. Projected costs for a full-scale treatment system are provided. In addition, an evaluation of a field method for analyzing explosives in groundwater-which was performed in conjunction with the treatability test-is presented.
