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.


The papers presented in volume 6 are intended to help the reader find solutions to the problems faced at cleanup sites contaminated with diesel fuel and related hydrocarbons. The increasing trend toward risk-based approaches has created a multitude of new options to be considered in determining what cleanup criteria fit the circumstances at each site. A greater variety of scientific and engineering information now often have to be considered than under the old, arbitrary cleanup standard paradigm.
