  • USACE integrates fracturing and iron/carbon injections at Colorado site

    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) performed a large-scale pilot test in 2009 for remediating TCE-contaminated groundwater at the "Atlas 12" formerly used defense site. Hydraulic fracturing was conducted to optimize emplacement of a zero-valent micro-iron/complex carbon amendment that chemically and biologically reduces contaminants in bedrock. Three-dimensional (3-D) mapping was used to ...
