A detailed demonstration project was performed to determine the effect that dewatering of a polluted alluvial aquifer and subsequent recharge by rainfall would have on the decontamination rate of the polluted alluvium. The alluvial deposits within the project area were polluted by years of brine water disposal from oil field operations into unlined earthen pits, secondary oil recovery operations, and abandoned and improperly plugged oil wells. Secondary benefits of the project were to determine the effect that removal of contaminated alluvial water would have on downstream water quality, and on the quality of water in a minicipal water supply located downstream from the project site. Contaminated water withdrawn from the alluvium was disposed of in a deep disposal well having a depth of 5,700 feet. An evaluation of the project indicated that contaminated water from alluvial deposits can successfully be collected and disposed of.
