Abstract
Remediation of petroleum contraminated soils for remote site cleanup typically involves two options. Due to the remoteness and inaccessiblity of many of Alaska's rural contaminated sites, off-site treatment is often impractical. The remediation option chosen at any site is based on the availability of the area for on-site treatement, time for completion, and money. Many of Alaska's contaminated sites have an abundance of space and time, making on-site remediation a viable alternative. The proposed program is directed at demonstrating the feasibility of using an on-site, remotely-controlled and monitored process to optimize remediation of contaminated soil at inaccessible rural areas. Environmental parameters are configured to enhance biodegradation of petroleum hydrocarbons present in contaminated soil. The remediation process is accomplished through the use of a uniquely designed monitoring and control system.
