Pagination or Media Count:
The U.S. Army Environmental Center in partnership with the Naval Facilities Engineering Services Center and the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station demonstrated Physical Separationleaching methods for the remediation of small arms range soils. The demonstration occurred at Fort Polk, Louisiana. After conducting a world-wide search, two vendors were selected to demonstrate two variations of the physical separationleaching technologies. The first using a process based on acetic weak acid chemistry and the second based on hydrochloric strong acid chemistry. Following completion of the bench treatability studies, each vendor performed a full scale 5-10 tons per hour, 1000 tons total demonstration of their respective technologies. This handbook provides technical background and guidance for conducting the following activities at outdoor small-arms ranges 1 Planing and conducting treatability studies of physical separationacid leaching, 2 determining the effectiveness, implementability, and cost of physical separationacid leaching, 3 preparing a Statement of Work to obtain competitive quotations for range maintenanceremediation, and 4 managing and implementing range maintenanceremediation.
