This manual was developed for remedial design engineers and regulatory personnel who oversee the ex situ ground-water or leachate treatment efforts of the regulated community. The manual can be used as a treatment technology screening tool in conjunction with other references. More importantly, the manual briefly presents technical consideration (or concepts) for use when evaluating, designing, or reviewing a system design for the treatment of contaminated ground water or leachate from land disposal operations. This manual describes traditional technologies that have evolved from industrial wastewater treatment and that have been implemented at full scale for ground-water or leachate treatment.
