Treat the source, not the symptom! Over the past 30 years, groundwater remediation technologies and strategies have changed, yet post-treatment contaminant “rebound” is still a problem at many sites.
First, pump and treat gave way to air sparging. Then, the rage was aerobic bioremediation using oxygen-release products – which more recently gave way to in-situ chemical oxidation (ISCO) methods based on more aggressive active-oxygen chemistries. Regardless of the technology used, the rebound effect is still a problem. Is this a failure of the technology? Or is rebound an artifact of our limited understanding of contaminant distribution in the subsurface? More often than not, it’s the latter.
Governor Chris Christie recently announced that all of the approximately 3,000 New Jersey public schools must test every drinking water fountain for lead. Testing will begin this spring, with the goal of having every drinking water fountain tested by the start of the 2016-2017 school year in September. The findings will be made available to the public. All school districts will be able to seek reimbursement for the costs of the new school testing mandate from the state. This announcement is the result of 30 schools in Newark that tested positive for lead. For more information about Christie’s plan for water testing, please click here.
