Phytoremediation

Groundwater Remediation

Former Refinery; Rhode Island

OBJECTIVES

Roux used a risk-based closure design to address free product, petroleum residuals, soil contamination, and dissolved phase groundwater impacts within a 100-acre former refinery. Key elements are excavation, consolidation, and construction of a phytotechnology cover (15,000 trees) to promote rhizodegradation of residual organics, phytostabilization of metals, and hydraulic control of impacted groundwater.
