Abstract:

This site-specific work plan presents the scope of multiphase bioventing pilot tests for in situ treatment of fuel-contaminated soils at the Fire Protection Training Area designated as Site FTA-2 at Patrick Air Force Base AFB, florida. The proposed pilot tests will be performed by Engineering-Science, Inc. ES. The three primary objectives of the proposed pilot tests are 1 to assess the potential for supplying oxygen throughout the contaminated soil depth, 2 to determine the rate at which indigenous microorganisms will degrade the fuel when stimulated by oxygen-rich soil gas, and 3 to evaluate the potential for sustaining these rates of biodegradation until fuel contamination is remediated to concentrations below regulatory standards.
