NPFC - EM 200-1-21
DESIGN: IN SITU THERMAL REMEDIATION
|Publication Date:||30 May 2014|
Purpose. This Engineer Manual (EM) document provides guidance and background for the appropriate screening and selection of in situ thermal remediation (ISTR) technologies, including steam enhanced extraction injection, electrical resistivity heating, and thermal conductive heating. This document is intended to help distinguish proper applications of the technology and identify important design, operational, and monitoring issues relevant to Government oversight personnel. It is intended for use by engineers, geologists, hydrogeologists, soil scientists, chemists, project managers, and others who possess a technical education but only the broadest familiarity with ISTR technologies. The appropriate Office of Counsel must be consulted with regard to the proper application of the laws and requirements under the various regulatory programs and patent law. There may be differences in application between the various Defense programs. The foundation of Corps of Engineers environmental work is the Environmental Operating Principles as specified in ER 200-1-5. These seven tenets serve as guides and must be applied in all Corps business lines as we strive to achieve a sustainable environment.
Applicability. This EM applies to all USACE commands having Civil Works and/or Military Programs hazardous, toxic, or radioactive waste (HTRW) project responsibilities.
