Industrial Park GW Treatment System Begins Operating

BNL's first off-site groundwater treatment system began operating on September 23, 1999. The system is located in an Industrial Park south of the Long Island Expressway. It addresses volatile organic compound contamination with a technology known as in-well air stripping. The system is scheduled to operate until 2012. After shutdown, monitoring will continue until 2030.
