The article offers information on the remediation of groundwater due to the collection of tetrachloroethylene (PCE) and trichloetylene (TCE) in Texas from June 2004 -October 2007. It cites that the injection of potassium permanganate (KMnO4) and sodium permanganate (NaMnO4) decreased chlorinated ethene concentrations. Moreover, installation of permeable reactive barrier (PRB) for down gradient passive plume control reduced the chlorinated volatile organic carbons (CVOC).
