Federal regulations have required thousands of underground storage tanks (USTs) to be dug up and removed or replaced. The contamination of soil and groundwater from leaking USTs has become widespread and has produced an overwhelming number of sites that require remediation. This text presents a broad scope of the remedial process from initial site assessment to closure in an integrated, understandable format. It guides the reader through regulatory requirements, site assessment and sampling, and remediatory methods. RCRA and CERCLA federal regulations are addressed. the chemistry and toxicology of petroleum hydrocarbons in the remediation process are explained, and factors affecting soil remediation are discussed. Environmental assessments, site characterizations, remediation planning and remediation methods are all covered in detail.
