ABSTRACT
The article discusses the lessons learned from field sites of in situ groundwater using EHC® intended for chlorinated solvents' in situ chemical reduction and immobilization of heavy metals. It presents an overview of the factors in the possible troubling in-situ injection development including metal mobilization, concentration spikes following an injection, and temporary observation of compounds associated to injection. The tips to minimize potential daylighting are also mentioned.
