 Bioremediation of fuel oil Cape Cod Air Force Station Sagamore, Massachusetts
To reduce the possibility that the borehole would become a preferential air flow pathway, the area between the monitoring points within a borehole was backfilled with a dry sand and bentonite powder seal.
Engineering analysis of the potential costs associated with air pollution control indicated that, due primarily to the high required flow rate and relatively low expected VOC concentration (and, therefore, BTU content) of the extracted soil gas, activated carbon adsorption would be more cost effective that other air pollution control systems (e.g., incineration).
For example, approximately hourly, air samples from eight inline sampling locations are collected and analyzed by the PID and the results of these analysis are transmitted to the DACS.
