The results of the pilot plant evaluation of aeration methods for the removal of volatile organic solvents from ground water are presented. The project took place at Glen Cove, Long Island, New York, where the concentration of cis-1,2-dichloroethyene, trichloroethylene, and tetrachloroethylene in that community's well water exceeded State Guidelines. Several aeration approaches were examined, including diffused aeration, packed column diffused aeration, cooling tower aeration, induced air spray aeration (with and without packing), packed column air-stripping, and air-lift pumping. Air discharging from some of the units was sampled for potential air pollution problems. Capital and operating costs were estimated for full-scale installations. Several of the systems evaluated reduced contaminant levels to meet present New York State guidelines.
