Paper given at Battelle's Second International Symposium on Bioremediation and Sustainable Environmental Technologies, June 10-13, 2013, Jacksonville, FL.  ABSTRACT:  A former electroplating facility in a heavily developed urban area had source area tetrachloroethene (PCE) concentrations of 9,180 micrograms per liter (µ/L).  This is approximately 6% of PCE's aqueous solubility, implying the presence of residual dense, non-aqueous phase liquid (DNAPL).  The dissolved-phase plume had migrated offsite.   READ FULL PAPER
