Using Solar-Powered Groundwater Recirculation to Enhance Reductive Dechlorination at Kennedy Space Center
« All Publications

Geosyntec Consultants (Geosyntec) designed and implemented a groundwater Interim Measure (IM) using a solar powered recirculation system to facilitate enhanced reductive dechlorination (ERD) at a site located at the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in east-central Florida on behalf of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

The ERD system included biostimulation, bioaugmentation, and groundwater recirculation to treat elevated concentrations of trichloroethene (TCE), cis- 1,2-dichloroethene (cDCE), and vinyl chloride that exceeded Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) Groundwater Cleanup Target Levels (GCTLs).
