Chlorinated solvent contaminationof groundwater is a recognizedbarrier to both potablewater use and brownfield siteredevelopment in Canada.Several high-profile trichloroethene(TCE) contaminant issues such as thosein Cambridge, Ontario, and in Shannon,Québec, have increased public awarenessof this problem, and also stimulated theCanadian consulting community to considerthe use of in situ chemical reduction(ISCR) technologies to address this typeof contamination. In particular, zero-valentiron based ISCR remedies, while establishedworldwide since the mid 1990s,have only recently been recognized as aviable remedial alternative in the Canadianmarketplace.
