1 Remediation of Tetrachloroethylene DNAPL Contaminated Soils on Parris Island, South Carolina Randall Martin SWS 6262: Soil Contamination and Remediation

2 Introduction What is Tetrachloroethylene- DNAPL Contaminated Site Previous Remediation Pilot Studies Suggested Remediation Technique Conclusion Parris Island, South Carolina (Source: Vroblesky, 2009)Vroblesky, 2009

3 Tetrachloroethylene Known as PCE Chemical Formula C 2 Cl 4 Drying cleaning and degreasing Medical concerns Liver failure Renal Cancer Lympathic and hematopoitic cancer Ocular deterioration Drinking water 3 PPB (FL) Dense Non-Aqueous Phase Liquid DNAPL Immobile Concentrated Spread Elusive Tetrachloroethylene, (Source: Wikimedia)Wikimedia

4 Parris Island History Purchased 1883 - Navy Base Marines 1915 – Recruit Training Geology Barrier-island sand, silt, clay, organic layer Surficial Aquifer Hawthorne formation and Floridan aquifer Land use Buildings Ranges and training areas Population Military Civilian

5 Contaminated Site Site-45 Contamination 1994, dry cleaning facility Unknown Volume Krug (2010) – 1294.6 kg Concerns Areas of exposure Source of drinking water Class GB groundwater < 10000 PPM TDS MCL organic/inorganic contaminants Site 45, (Source: Vroblesky, 2009)Vroblesky, 2009

6 Spread of Contaminants Orientation Northern plume Facility relocation Investigation and second plume Movement Storm sewers Sanitary sewers Tidal Influence Sewer system around Site 45, (Source: Vroblesky, 2009)Vroblesky, 2009

8 DNAPL Remediation Strategies Natural Attenuation Bioaugmentation Biostimulation Pump and treat In situ chemical oxidation Excavation Steam injection Pyrolysis Combustion Emulsion injection Air sparging Flushing Thermal volatilization

9 Pump and Treat Initial Remediation 1998 Lateral spread Reduce concentration Intercept down gradient 1.056 million gallons Discontinued 2000 Remove NAPL FIRST! Tailings McKinney & Lin (1996) Time vs. cost, 7 years Fewer larger flow rate wells Source: Mercer, 1990Mercer, 1990

10 Pilot Studies Emulsified Zero Valent Nanoscale Iron Aids in reduction Nanoscale potential DNAPL movement Emulsion=electron source Dehalocodcoides Dehalobacter Secondary contamination Results Su Direct injection & pneumatic injection DI – 85% reduction in PCE, mass flux Movement of contaminant Reduction in concentrations Ignorance of DNAPL Additional treatments Area of EZVI pilot study, (Source: Su (2012))Su (2012)

11 Steam and Air Co-Injection Process Co-injection of air Efficiencies Mobilize DNAPL Oxidation of solvents Permeability Volatilization of CVOC Health and Life Illustration of remediation process, (Source: Kaslusky & Udell, 2002)Kaslusky & Udell, 2002

12 Bioremediation Bioaugmentation Not necessary Dechlorinating microbes Biostimulation Organic layer Ethanol/vegetable oil Anaerobic conditions Mobilization of DNAPL Reduction in concentrations of CVOCs at 26 different sites (Source: McGuire, 2006)McGuire, 2006

13 Comparison Initial Remediation and Pilot Study Pump and treat Time frame Decades Emulsified nanoscale zero valent iron Indefinite quantities required Preferential flow Surface breakthrough Suggested Remedial Strategy Steam and air co-injection Time frame Application Mechanism of remediation Bioremediation Microbes presents Indestructability

14 Conclusions Steam and air co-injection Reduce environmental impact Increase rate of DNAPL removal Minimal process residue Bioremediation Natural presence Minimally affected by injections Low environmental impact
