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.
Volume 5 deals with topics relevant to risk-based cleanup, including site risk assessment, appropriate site closure levels, and contaminate measurement techniques. Development and acceptance of methods for establishing appropriate risk-based cleanup levels are important, but achieving these levels by the most cost-effective treatment method is also necessary. Understanding the response of diesel fuel to different remediation approaches under a variety of conditions is essential to planning the most cost-effective approach at a particular site. This volume deals with these and other issues as they apply to both railroad and non-railroad sites.
