Remediation Project Overview


RID’s two-phase remedy proposes a single, regional pump and treat remedy that maximizes existing RID infrastructure. This solution would restore ~40,000 gpm of impacted water supply (50% for drinking, 50% for irrigation) at significantly lower costs and in less time than traditional methods.

  • Phase 1A – continuously pump impacted RID wells along the Salt Canal (up to 20,000 gpm) and treat using liquid phase GAC for drinking water supply
  • Phase 1B – pipe and continuously pump most highly impacted RID wells to Salt Canal and treat using liquid phase GAC for drinking water supply
  • Phase 2 - Pipe water with lower VOC concentrations to less expensive remedial measures (air stripping, blending, well replacement) prior to discharge to Main Canal for continued irrigation use
