Twenty years after an estimated spill of 36,000 gallons of aviation gasoline at an airport location a major portion still remains as oily phase residue just above the water table. The plume extends downgradient 360 meters. The vertical profile is a uniform beach sand to 15 meters with the water table near five meters. Soil gas measurements have been done at various depths throughout the vertical profile. Generally the relationship was direct with depth for fuel vapor, methane, and carbon dioxide, but not with oxygen where active degradation processes occurred. Bioprocess enhancement occurred beneath a turf area receiving fertilizer and sprinkler water.
