Groundwater Pump and Treat Systems: Summary of Selected Cost and Performance Information at Superfund-financed Sites

This report summarizes Phase 1 (the data collection phase) of the Nationwide Fund-lead Pump and Treat Optimization Project. This phase included contacting a project liaison for each of the EPA Regions, identifying the Fund-lead pump-and-treat (P&T) systems in each Region, collecting baseline information about each system through a web-based questionnaire or phone interview, and selecting a total of 20 Fund-lead systems to receive RSEs. Four of the 20 P&T systems (two in Region 4 and two in Region 5) were previously selected and evaluated as part of a demonstration project completed in 2000.
