Abstract: Engineers have always had to rely on wells for onsite soil and ground water remediation systems. During the past several years, horizontal drilling technology, adapted from oil recovery and utility installation industries, has made it possible for a single well to contact a much larger contaminated area. The process has several advantages, including the savings from decreased surface disruptions at a facility.
