Remedial Process Selection

Selecting and designing a remedial process are at the core of the central decision a team of environmental professionals may have to make for a specific site. The DSTs featured on this page focus on specific remedial process selection issues, including:
Is monitored natural attenuation (MNA) a viable strategy at my site?
Will source removal expedite the remediation timeframe?
How does MNA compare with a pump-and-treat remedy in terms of remediation timeframe?.
