This volume is part of a 6-volume series (volumes 2-7) containing the Proceedings from the annual Symposium on Remediation of Diesel Fuel Contaminated Soils, sponsored by the Association for the American Railroads Research and Test Department. The topics covered have broad applicability. Articles are based on presentations at the symposia, and go well beyond railroad sites and issues. The series brings into focus issues relating to the remediation of diesel contaminated soils, with an emphasis on bioremediation. The six volumes span the nineties, tracing the rapid and significant developments in the field that have occurred in response to regulatory changes regarding underground storage tanks and the protection of groundwater.
One of the objectives of volume 3 is to provide the reader with the methods and results of approaches that have been used at a wide variety of sites, cleaning up contaminants of interest to the railroads such as diesel and related compounds. The general need to cleanup petroleum hydrocarbons such as weathered diesel and other heavy hydrocarbons leads to a related issue, which is the risk posed by these materials. Timelines and disturbance resulting from site cleanup on railroad property are also discussed.
