Description:

This Protocol is designed to evaluate the fate in ground water of chlorinated aliphatic hydrocarbons and/or fuel hydrocarbons. Documentation of natural attenuation requires detailed site characterization. The data collected under this protocol can be used to compare the relative effectiveness of other remedial options. and natural attenuation. This protocol should be used to evaluate whether monitored natural attenuation by itself or in conjunction with other remedial technologies is sufficient to achieve site-specific remedial objectives. Understanding the contaminant flow field in the subsurface is essential for a technically justified evaluation of a monitored natural attenuation remedial option; therefore, use of this protocol is not appropriate for evaluating monitored natural attenuation at sites where the contaminant flow field cannot be determined with an acceptable degree of certainty (e.g., complex fractured bedrock, karst, aquifers.)
