PlumeStop Case Study

Case Study: Using PlumeStop® Liquid Activated Carbon for Successful Biodegradation

This case study reviews a challenging site encompassing approximately 60 acres in rural South Carolina where a remedial facility assessment (RFA) identified 44 solid waste management units (SWMUs) and three areas of concern (AOCs). The overall project effort spanned some 20 years. The recent remedial objective focused on reducing contaminant concentrations within the downgradient plume and limiting further migration.

PlumeStop Liquid Activated Carbon was used in both the pilot test and full-scale application to successfully treat the downgradient portion of a long, narrow cVOC plume. A pilot test was followed by a full-scale implementation and resulted in contaminant reductions ranging from 98% to 100% within the zone of influence. Details of the remedial design approach are provided along with verified remedial outcomes.
