Abstract:

This Demonstration Report provides an evaluation of innovative diagnostic tools used first for site characterization to support remediation design, and second to evaluate the performance of in situ chemical oxidation ISCO using permanganate at the Watervliet Arsenal WVA. An area of groundwater contamination was discovered in 1998 in the eastern portion of the WVA, adjacent to the site boundary and in front of former manufacturing Building 40. Groundwater contaminants include chlorinated volatile organic compounds CVOCs, predominantly tetrachloroethene PCE, and cis-1,2-dichloroethene DCE, with a lesser percentage of trichloroethene TCE and vinyl chloride.
