Fate and Transport of PCBs in the Subsurface
SSP&A served on an expert panel assembled by the Texas Eastern Transmission Corporation. The charge to this panel was to develop feasible remedial alternatives for sites where soil and groundwater were contaminated with polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) compounds. Dr. Charles Andrews, President of SSP&A, served as Director of this panel that defined the chemical properties of the PCBs and their degradation products. The panel conducted laboratory and field studies of biodegradation, surfactant chemistry and transport, PCB transport and sorption, and the behavior of DNAPL in the subsurface; and field testing methods for PCB solubilization and recovery in fractured and porous media.
