Remediation system troubleshooting and optimization
The cost of operating an improperly designed treatment system can at times exceed the cost of redesigning the system so that it can effectively achieve site closure. Remedies range from optimization of the system O&M to the last resort of system redesign. In some cases, simple modifications to the aboveground equipment can result in major reductions in the cost and time to closure. Cost-benefit and time-to-closure analyses for recommended modifications allow clients to evaluate the modifications from both an economic and a risk standpoint.
