Groundwater Contamination by Tetrachloroethylene (PCE) and Trichloroethylene (TCE): The Agency for Toxic Substance and Disease Registry's (ATSDR's) Approach to Evaluating Public Health Hazard

Numerical Simulation of Reductive Dechlorination of Tetrachloroethene in a Sandbox Model

PCE in Dewatering Flows—A Case Study Risk-Based Clean-Up Action Levels
Up to 70 micrograms per liter (μg/L) of tetrachloroethylene (PCE) was detected in dewatering flows associated with a construction project (Project) in the City of Los Angeles. Because...

Probabilistic Approach for Cancer Risk Assessment
Carcinogenic chemicals have entered ground water systems from surface spills and leaching from subsurface disposal sites. Of particular interest in this study was the contaminant tetrachioroethylene...

Water Pipelines: Tackling Toxics
In the spring of 1988, residents of Girwood, Alaska contacted the state's environmental agency to complain of foul-tasting drinking water. While most complaints came after...

Degradation of Ground Water by Tetrachloroethylene
Ground water from many municipal water wells in California has been degraded by tetrachloroethylene (PCE) at concentrations above the drinking water standard. Investigations conducted...

Separation of Organics from the Aqueous Phase Using Polymeric Resins
The adsorption of tetrachloroethene (PCE) onto several polymeric materials is reported and compared to activated carbon F-400. In addition, the bisolute adsorption of chloroform and trichloroethene...

Design and Construction of TCE/PCE Removal Facilities
This paper presents a review of the design and construction of a facility in Arcadia, California, to remove trichloroethylene (TCE) and tetrachlorethylene (PCE) from ground water. (Edited...
