Part of: Detection, Control, and Renovation of Contaminated Ground Water


A spill normally has five phases; namely, the initial emergency response, the site assessment, the development of a remedial action plan, the implementation of the remedial action plan, and the post cleanup monitoring. The paper explains various response concepts, including the type of planning and resources necessary to respond and remediate hazardous-material spills. It explains the implications and interrelationships of each of the project phases with regard to the sources, pools, and plume of contamination. Levels of protection, work zones, methods of containment, product recovery, groundwater recovery, on-site treatment, and air monitoring are examined. A case study is presented to demonstrate the identified concepts.
