NASA Site Uses Advanced In-Situ Chemical Oxidation for Successful Subsurface Soil and Groundwater Remediation
E-Wire -- The National Aeronautics & Space Administration's Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, FL, has undertaken aggressive groundwater and soil remediation to treat an area of on-site petroleum hydrocarbon contamination. Faced with the challenge of removing the contamination while maintaining the integrity of underground utilities, piping, and infrastructure, NASA and its consultant Tetra Tech chose RegenOx(TM), a proven, non-corrosive, and cost-effective in-situ chemical oxidation technology developed by Regenesis (San Clemente, CA).
The Launch Equipment Shop, part of NASA's famed Vehicle Assembly Building complex, has conducted highly specialized manufacturing, fabrication, and assembly work for the space program since the early 1960s. Leaks from a 4,000-gallon underground fuel oil tank, subsequently decommissioned and removed, led to notable contamination of soil and groundwater, including a layer of light non-aqueous phase liquid up to 15" thick, with total recoverable petroleum hydrocarbon (TRPH) levels as high as 20,000 parts per million (ppm) in soil and 42 ppm in groundwater.
