Remediation Phase

Pump and Treat

Remediation technology that cleans up groundwater contaminated with dissolved chemicals by pumping groundwater from wells to an above-ground treatment system that removes the contaminants.

Performance-Based Optimization of Pump & Treat Systems
Section 2 (Life Cycle Optimization)
This document provides an understanding of adaptive management as a key to optimization and presents a technical framework for conducting optimization efforts at P&T sites. While optimization of P&T may not achieve all site goals, this document provides support for transition or termination or both when optimization indicates that P&T may not be the solution, or sole solution, going forward.
