Remediation Technologies in Use for Groundwater and Soil Contamination in the Santa Clara Valleyby Satish Atmaula,
Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: Supplying Water and Saving the Environment for Six Billion People
Abstract: Silicon Valley is known as the origin and the heart of the high technology (Hitech) industry. However, tech-nologies used for soils and groundwater remediation in the valley are not necessarily hitech. In most situations, practical, safe, and cost-effective remediations result from simple, proven, and easily-permittable technologies. The paper reviews the remedial technologies currently used in view of: The types of industrial operations; The physical setting and hydrogeological characteristics of the Valley; and The regulatory and community concerns and issues. These factors either directly or indirectly impact the selection and/or use of remedial technologies.
