Abstract:

The risk-based approach is designed to combine natural, or intrinsic, remediation with low-cost source removal technologies such as in situ bioventing to economically reduce risks posed by subsurface petroleum spills. There are three primary goals of this field test project. The first goal is to determine if remedial actions are necessary to minimize contaminant migration and potential receptor exposure to fuel-hydrocarbon- contaminated environmental media at the KC-135 Crash Site. The second goal is to implement any necessary and appropriate remedial technologies at the KC-135 Crash Site. It is possible that at some fuel-contaminated sites, intrinsic remediation alone will be sufficient to minimize or eliminate potential risks to human health and the environment. Implementation of the intrinsic remediation option under these circumstances would always require long-term monitoring to confirm the effectiveness of this remediation approach. At other sites, however, it may be necessary to supplement intrinsic remediation and long-term monitoring with some type of engineered solution, such as source removal, to minimize contaminant migration and receptor exposure. A combination of removal e.g., free product recovery, bioventing, intrinsic remediation, andor administrative commitments e.g., long-term monitoring, land use restrictions constitute a remedial alternative. The third goal is to collect data on how best to implement a risk-based remediation at a site, which will eventually be incorporated into a programmatic protocol document on the risk based approach. This protocol document will standardize site characterization, modeling, and interpretive procedures.
