Air sparging can be successfully applied to deep aquifers to remediate significant hydrocarbon mass in order to ultimately reach a point at which monitored natural attenuation can manage dissolved phase plumes. Air sparging is typically applied in shallow ground water conditions, less than 15 m beneath the water table (bwt). Deep air sparging, 15 to 46 m bwt, is more challenging but a viable alternative for treatment of residual petroleum hydrocarbons and dissolved phase constituents within a… CONTINUE READING
