FY 2021 STATEMENT OF NEED
Environmental Restoration (ER) Program Area
The objective of this Statement of Need (SON) was to develop an improved understanding of the process influencing the effectiveness and fate of particulate amendments for in situ treatment of impacted in groundwater, including per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) and chlorinated volatile organic compounds (CVOCs). Specifically, the goal was to address the following research needs:
The projects listed below were selected to address the objectives of this SON. Additional information on individual projects will be available soon.
Research should lead to improved site management, specifically for groundwater sites impacted by CVOCs or PFAS, by improving tools and guidance for applying commercially available amendments at Department of Defense (DoD) sites. The resulting tools and understanding should improve the ability to implement effective remedial strategies at DoD sites.
