This environmental research brief reports on innovative measures for addressing subsurface chromium contamination. For the source zone, surfactant-enhanced chromium extraction is evaluated for expediting the removal of chromium from the source zone soils, thereby mitigating the continual feeding of the ground-water plume. For the concentrated plume, polyelectrolyte-enhanced ultrafiltration (PEUF) is evaluated as an innovative treatment process with desirable operating characteristics (less sludge production, higher quality final water, etc.), Relative to the dilute plume, the hydrogeological effectiveness of hydraulically passive, chemically reactive barrier systems is evaluated (i.e., in situ reduction of Cr(VI) to Cr(III)).
