Bio-trap study results regarding PCP degradation

  • What was the goal of the study summarized in this report?
    As outlined in the bio-trap study work plan, the goal of this study was to gather conclusive data on whether natural degradation of pentachlorophenol (PCP) was occurring in the groundwater plume on the Wauleco site.

  • What key information should readers take away from this report?
    The study conclusively demonstrated that biodegradation of PCP is occurring throughout the groundwater plume at the Wauleco site, including the central portion and downgradient groundwater. In fact, biodegradation is demonstrated to be the primary natural process resulting in declining PCP concentration. 

  • Why is this report relevant?
    The results in this report not only confirm that conditions throughout the Wauleco site are favorable for the natural biodegradation of PCP, but that biodegradation is currently occurring at moderate to high levels.
