FY 2013 STATEMENT OF NEED
Environmental Restoration (ER) Program Area
The overall objective of this Statement of Need (SON) was to solicit proposals for applied research to improve our understanding of how to assess and optimize treatment of complex contaminated groundwater plumes and to determine cost effectively the performance limitation s of a remedial approach. Specific objectives include:
The projects listed below were selected to address the objectives of this SON. Additional information on individual projects can be found by clicking the project title.
Research should lead to an improved understanding of how to assess and optimize treatment of complex contaminated groundwater plumes and to quickly determine the performance limitations of a remedial approach will improve our ability to manage such sites in a cost effective manner. Once procedures and methodologies are developed for assessment and optimization of the more difficult contaminated sites, more cost-effective management and treatment approaches can be implemented, substantially reducing the life cycle costs for managing these plumes.
