Mundell undertook a modeling study at a site where the current remediation system had reached a point of diminishing returns to show that shutting off remediation would not result in further discharges……Read More »

At a remediation site and after detailed evaluation of various factors, Mundell employed six separate independent systems instead of one central system. This greatly reduced the costs that would be associated with moving the water from each well to a central location such as piping and trenching……Read More »

Groundwater modeling at a site with impacted groundwater indicated that the time-to-cleanup for the optimal four-well recovery well scenario with discharge of clean water into an infiltration trench would require about 2 to 3 years from the start of active pumping. Actual remedial results since system startup have confirmed the accuracy of these predictions as site groundwater conditions are nearing the achievement of cleanup goals during this time period……Read More »
