Innovations in Bedrock Remediation

In Situ Thermal Remediation (ISTR) is a common method of remediation for volatile organic compounds in unconsolidated soils, both above and below the water table. In the past eighteen years, ISTR has been used to successfully treat over a dozen contaminated sedimentary bedrock sites. Sedimentary bedrock treatment has recently expanded to greater depths and into difficult, karst limestone environments. With proper design and implementation, the remediation of sedimentary bedrock can be completed as effectively as the remediation of overburden materials.
