Northwest Territories Site 1
This was a remote site that was powered by a diesel generator. The generator and associated tanks leaked, causing hydrocarbon contamination in the soil. The remote location of the site required that all remediation equipment be transported to and from the site via helicopter. The site was bio-remediated using a combination of electrokinetics, biosurfactants, and hydrocarbon degrading bacteria and fungi. The site was treated for eight days, in which time hydrocarbon concentrations were significantly reduced.
