Design Considerations for In Situ Chemical Oxidation

Design Considerations for In Situ Chemical Oxidation

Most in situ remediation systems including in situ chemical oxidation (ISCO) are less mature than ex situ remediation systems (e.g., pump and treat) and other conventional environmental systems (e.g., wastewater treatment systems); therefore, design information, formats, and standards for in situ remediation systems are generally not as readily available or as consistent. The lack of available standards causes the design submittals for in situ remediation systems to vary widely from one project to another.

The purpose of this course is to provide a framework for preparing ISCO system designs. The course provides a summary of best practices for ISCO design, tips for appropriate quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) measures, and a listing of available standards and references. It incorporates lessons learned from sites on the design, implementation, and performance of ISCO. The information provided here can be readily incorporated into a design format suitable to the scope of the project

Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of twenty (20) questions to earn 4 PDH credits.

Learning Objectives

This course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Overview of ISCO such as oxidants, key design parameters, and design approach
  • Key Conceptual Site Model requirements
  • Design requirements including bench-scale and pilot studies, oxidant selection, injection plan, monitoring requirements, and optimization
  • Requirements for design drawings and specifications
