Contaminated properties have various liability implications so it is important that stakeholders involved with such matters are informed of the various options available to address contamination, prevent exposure, and manage liability. The approach to environmental cleanup and closure has changed and evolved over the years. There is a renewed focus on clean-up of source areas, which typically have the highest contaminant levels at a site and likely present the greatest threat to human health and the environment.

There are many options available when addressing contamination to obtain closure and there are many “right” ways to address the situation to manage liabilities accordingly. The ability of a technology to remediate soil and groundwater impacted by chlorinated solvents and petroleum hydrocarbons regardless of lithology proves to be beneficial over conventional in situ technologies. This presentation will provide a summary and case study of Electrical Resistance Heating (ERH); one (1) viable, aggressive remediation approach that typically works well at Sites with grossly contaminated subsurface media.
