Abstract : This report presents the results of a treatability study (TG) performed by Parsons Engineering Science, Inc. (Parsons ES) at Patrick Air Force Base, Florida to evaluate the use of intrinsic remediation with long-term monitoring (LTM) as a remedial option for dissolved benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and xylene (BTEX) contamination in the shallow water saturated zone near the BX Service Station (Site ST-29). Soil and groundwater contamination caused by motor vehicle gasoline is known to occur at the site, with contamination being present in the aqueous and gaseous phases and as residual light nonqueous-phase liquid (LNAPL) within the aquifer matrix. There is no evidence of mobile LNAPL (free product) at this site. This study focused on the impact of the dissolved BTEX and residual LNAPL on the shallow groundwater system at the site. Site history and the results of previous soil and groundwater investigations also are summarized in this report.
