There is growing concern over the quality of the nations ground water resources. Instances of ground water contamination from organic chemicals have created a need to identify alternative technologies for adequate removal of organic chemicals and to determine relative costs associated with necessary treatment. This paper discusses several control technology options available to treat ground water for organic chemical contamination. A cost and performance analysis is presented in order to guide the selection of control technologies for three major contaminants: Trichloroethylene; Tetrachlorethylene; 1,1,1-Trichlorethane. In all cases aeration is the cheapest alternative for treatment. If adsorption is required, home units may prove to be cheaper then central adsorption treatment (GAC).
