Davis*, E L., G. Heron, AND S. Carroll. STEAM INJECTION INTO FRACTURED LIMESTONE AT LORING AIR FORCE BASE. 2004 U.S. EPA/NGWA Fractured Rock Conference: State of the Science and Measuring Sucess in Remediation, Portland, ME, September 13 - 15, 2004. National Ground Water Association, Westerville, OH, 683, (2004).

Impact/Purpose:

To provide expert advise on characterization of fractured rock and steam injection.

Description:

A research project on steam injection for the remediation of spent chlorinated solvents from fractured limestone was recently undertaken at the former Loring AFB in Limestone, ME. Participants in the project include the Maine Department of Environmental Protection, EPA Region I, the Air Force, EPA's Office of Research and Development, and SteamTech Environmental Services. In addition, expert advise on characterization of fractured rock and steam injection was provided by researchers from Queen's University and the University of California ? Berkeley. The primary objective of the project was to facilitate development of promising technologies for bedrock remediation while reducing the amount of mass remaining in the subsurface at this site.
