Abstract

Pump-and-treat is the most commonly used treatment technology for saturated zone groundwater cleanup in the United States. However, the technology is known to have several shortcomings. Nonetheless, available data indicate that the technique can still be used in conjunction with innovative treatment and remediation technologies. Through two case studies, the implementation and limitations of the technology are highlighted. Theoretical models that can be used as design tools are also introduced.
