Example text

Air sparging can create groundwater mounding, which could potentially cause free products to migrate and contamination to spread. Also, it is not suitable around basements, sewers, or other subsurface confined spaces that are present at the site. Potentially dangerous constituent concentrations could accumulate in basements unless a vapor extraction system is used to control vapor migration. If the contaminated groundwater is located in a confined aquifer system, air sparging is not advisable, because the injected air would be trapped by the saturated confining layer and could not escape to the unsaturated zone.
