Abstract:

This report presents a description of the installation and monitoring results from pilot scale testing of Permeable Reactive Treatment PeRT walls at the Cape Canaveral Air Station CCAS. The pilot testing was performed in the Industrial Area Operable Unit OU near Hangar K. The overall objective of this pilot study was to test two new methods for emplacing reactive materials at depth. The specific goals of the pilot study were to Determine the extent of chlorinated volatile organic compound VOC degradation resulting from use of the PeRT walls Determine the useful lifetime of the PeRT walls Develop defensible data to illustrate the effectiveness of this technology in enhancing the remediation of contaminated soil and groundwater Evaluate the effectiveness of emplacement technologies that can go to depths greater than 40 feet and Compile data and evaluate of the applicability, cost, and performance of this technology, as it compares to traditional pump and treat methods of groundwater remediation.
