Remediation System Evaluations (RSEs) conducted at 20 Superfund-financed pump and treat (P&T) systems have identified potential opportunities for reducing annual operating costs without compromising protectiveness at 17 of the 20 systems. On average, the opportunities for each system translate to a potential reduction of more than 30% in the annual operating costs. The results of these RSEs are summarized in Pilot Project to Optimize Superfund-Financed Pump and Treat Systems: Summary Report and Lessons Learned (EPA 542-R-02-008a). Cost reduction recommendations included reducing labor costs, simplifying the treatment plant, replacing treatment components with more efficient units, and reducing process monitoring. Many of these cost savings opportunities arose because the parameters used to design the P&T systems differed from the actual parameters during system operation. This finding suggests that EPA project managers and other environmental professionals would benefit from guidance on designing cost-effective P&T systems.
