California Superfund First to Use 100% Solar Energy in Groundwater Cleanup

Standard

The system includes 236 heating electrodes that heat soil and groundwater to the boiling point of water.  The water and contaminants are then converted into a noxious gas that is pumped to the surface via 16 extraction wells and treated with granular activated carbon to remove the chemicals.  There are 27 temperature-monitoring wells to monitor the below ground operations.
