The paper presents information useful in evaluating the applicability of UV/Oxidation treatment technologies for groundwater contaminated with organics. The information presented includes a description of the technologies, factors affecting the technologies, and results from two pilot-scale studies of UV/Oxidation treatment system applications. The first pilot-scale study describes the performance of a UV/Oxidation system, developed by Ultrox International of Santa Ana, California, in treating groundwater contaminated with volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The second pilot-scale study describes the performance of another UV/Oxidation system, developed by Peroxidation Systems, Inc., of Tucson, Arizona, in treating groundwater contaminated with VOCs and chemical-warfare agent degradation products.
