Contaminated Groundwater Treatment

Passive Groundwater Treatment Systems are used to permit groundwater flow through specific treatment media. Contaminants in the groundwater react with the installed treatment medium and are either degraded, precipitated or absorbed in situ depending on the type of contaminant and treatment system.

Groundwater Recovery Systems are used to remove contaminated groundwater by drawing groundwater from wells and treating them for contaminated soil, water, air or gas. Dual-phase vacuum extraction (DPVE) can also be used to treat both contaminated groundwater and soil vapors.

Pump and Treat Systems are another method that ERC offers for remediating groundwater contaminated with chemicals such as industrial solvents, metals, or fuel oils. To complete the process, groundwater is pumped from an extraction well within the contaminated groundwater to an above-ground treatment system. The contaminated groundwater will pass through an air stripper and/or granular activated carbon prior to discharge into a permitted sewer or water way. Depending on the contaminant and volume the treatment system can be designed specifically for the need.
