2000-Present

An ongoing environmental project designed to restore groundwater in Pinellas County, which had been contaminated by chlorinated solvents.

Electrical resistive heating and steam-enhanced extraction was used to remove contaminated material and soils as well as to inject microbes. This includes nutrients and amendments designed to accelerate naturally occurring breakdowns of the contaminants.

The project allowed Pinellas to stop the spread of contaminants through drinking water supplies, and return the land to beneficial use.
