Site Location: Findlay, Ohio
Contaminants: TCE in Ground Water that is 10-12 feet below ground surface.
Project Objective: Remediation of TCE and its derivatives in a shallow aquifer.
Implementation Program: A TreeMediation site assessment was performed by collecting and evaluating soil and ground water data and reviewing previously developed site environmental data. Hybrid poplar & willow trees were planted in the fall of 1997 on the site using the TreeMediation process. This process was expected to effect contaminant removal and serve as a natural ground water pump system for containment and remediation of the contaminants that ranged in concentration from 11 to 150 mg/L (ppm).
Results to Date: After two years, the TCE in the ground water have been substantially reduced.
