FY 2014 STATEMENT OF NEED
Environmental Restoration (ER) Program Area
The overall objective of this Statement of Need (SON) was to seek applied research to develop cost effective in situ remedial alternatives for perfluoroalkyl impacted groundwater. Proposers were asked to focus on the following objectives:
The projects listed below were selected to address the objectives of this SON. Additional information on individual projects can be found by clicking the project title.
Research should lead to developing technologies for treatment of perfluoroalkyl sulfonates and perfluoroalkyl carboxylates in groundwater that will help facilitate the establishment of more cost effective and efficient remedial action plans that are protective of human health and the environment. The remediation approaches that will be developed through this SON will improve the reliability of chemical treatment processes and expedite the cleanup and closure of impacted Department of Defense (DoD) sites.
