Abstract:

This document was written to provide practical guidance on the optimization of soil vapor extraction SVE systems to assist Air Force environmental managers and consulting engineers who are responsible for the operation and monitoring of these systems so remediation goals can be achieved in a cost-effective manner. Five primary topics are presented the importance of accurate site characterization and how new characterization methods can enhance and redefine the conceptual site model and basis of design, the importance of a clear understanding of site closure requirements and defining remediation goals, standard methods for monitoring SVE system performance, common performance problems and methods of improving and optimizing the performance of these systems, and approaches to obtaining site closure.
