Title:Best Management Practices (BMPs) for Soil Treatment Technologies: Suggested Operational Guidelines to Prevent Cross-Media Transfer of Contaminants during Cleanup Activities
Document Date:05/01/1997
Description:Provides guidance on how to design and conduct soil remediation activities at RCRA and other hazardous waste sites so that transfers of contaminants from contaminated soil to other media (i.e., clean soil, air, and surface or groundwater) are minimized. Outlines the specific potential cross-media concerns for specific activities and recommends approaches for preventing cross-media transfer of contaminants. Addresses BMPs applicable across a broad range of remedial activities and most remediation technologies. Offers information on control technologies that can be used in conjunction with BMPs. Presents technology-specific BMPs for seven technology categories: containment technologies, soil washing, thermal treatment, vapor extraction, bioremediation, incineration treatment, and other physical/chemical treatments. Includes case studies and list of acronyms.
Topics:Treatment, Hazardous Waste, Cleanup (RCRA), Corrective Action (RCRA)
