An overview of alternative remediation methods for groundwater contamination
The Ohio State University
Cleaning up groundwater resources contaminated by the infiltration of various chemicals used by man and various waste products generated by human activities is a problem of major importance facing hydrogeologists today. The following paper presents discussions of current technology and methods used in the remediation of groundwater contamination to serve as guidelines for decision making in aquifer restoration projects. By citing case histories involving groundwater contamination and subsequent product recovery, groundwater treatment, and aquifer restoration, problems and solution methods are demonstrated.
