Abstract:

The fate and transport of arsenic were examined at two Department of Defense DoD sites. At Tyndall Air Force Base, Florida arsenic contamination is the result of application of arsenical herbicides. At the Devens Reserve Forces Training Area Ft. Devens, Massachusetts, naturally-occurring arsenic has been mobilized by application of enhanced reductive dechlorination ERD technology, designed to remediate contamination by chlorinated solvents. These two sites were compared with respect to plume evolution, mechanism of arsenic mobilization in the source areas, and potential sequestration mechanisms.
