Abstract:

This work implementation plan WIP, which was prepared by Parsons Engineering Science, Inc. Parsons ES under contract with McClellan Air Force Base AFB, describes the scope of work required for the collection and analysis of data to evaluate intrinsic remediation sometimes referred to as natural attenuation, intrinsic bioremediation, or passive bioremediation of groundwater containing chlorinated solvents beneath Investigation Clusters 17, 19, and 21 ICs 171921. An important component of the intrinsic remediation evaluation will be to assess the potential for natural biodegradation to reduce the toxicity and mobility of site-related contamination. The term natural biodegradation as used in this WIP refers to the biodegradation of chlorinated solvents by indigenous microorganisms without an engineered system. The conditions that allow for the biodegradation processes to occur have been largely determined by the manmade conditions specific to groundwater beneath ICs 171921, namely the co-disposal of fuels with the chlorinated solvents.
