Many challenging remediation sites have contamination present in fractured and weathered crystalline and sedimentary bedrock. Characterizing and conducting environmental remediation in fractured bedrock is difficult because fate and transport is complex, especially as compared to the better understood fate and transport in typical soil and groundwater systems. The goal of this project is to provide technical and regulatory guidance and internet-based training for regulators, the regulated community, remediation practitioners, and other stakeholders that will aid in the selection of appropriate characterization tools and techniques (e.g., geologic, hydraulic, and chemical) and remediation technologies to remediate common and emerging contaminants in fractured bedrock.
