Webinar attendees learn how the Interstate Technology and Regulatory Council’s (ITRC) web-based resources can be accessed and used in the cleanup of LUST sites, particularly for sites employing in situ remediation and injection. We discuss the remediation of a LUST site in Kentucky that presents unique considerations related to the use of surface geophysical methods prior to invasive bedrock investigation and remediation. Finally, we discuss the value of the remedial design characterization (RDC) and advancements made in in-situ injection techniques for remediation. Webinar wrap-up provides perspectives from the panel on the investigation and remediation of LUST sites via audience Q&A.
