[This message was posted to the newsgroup by Louis Fournier, email@example.com.] Sirs: I have just read your e-mail about the former Naval Air Station at Alameda and the soil and groundwater contamination at this site. Our company has been developing remediation technology involving the use of directionally -drilled horizontal wells to perform soil and groundwater remediation. A major benefit of this technology is that large areas can be treated using just a few wells. Moreover, the treatment equipment associated with each well can be placed in areas of the site which do not interfere with surface operations. Lastly, these wells can be placed under buildings, paved areas, and other facilities without adverse impacts. For petroleum sites, especially, we have found that using these wells to perform in situ biodegradation is particulary cost-effective. All that is necessary to to blow air through the contaminated area. Naturally-occurring microbes will biodegrade site contaminants. For sites such as NAS Alameda, directionally-drilled biosparge wells can be placed near the down-gradient edge of contamination plumes and positioned in such a way that on-site contaminants cannot and do not migrate to off-site receptors. We have cleaned up air ports, petroleum terminals, refineries and other facilities using this approach. Currently, we are using the same approach to address chlorinated solvent contamination at two DOE sites. In my view, the Navy and other DOD installations could well benefit from this technology and our experience. Horizontal biosparge wells commonly cleanup sites at a cost of only about 20% of traditional vertical well pump-and-treat approaches. They are also better than monitored natural attenuation since they will produce a clean site in our lifetimes. Louis B. Fournier, Ph.D. STAR Environmental, Inc.
