Welcome

The Groundwater Remediation Technologies Analysis Center will compile, analyze, and disseminate information on new groundwater remediation technologies. Center reports will be prepared by technical teams drawn as appropriate from National Environmental Technology Applications Center (NETAC), the University of Pittsburgh, and other supporting institutions. The center will maintain an active outreach program, and its activities will be guided by an external Guidance Committee composed of representatives from interested public- and private-sector organizations.

GWRTAC has information available on the following groundwater remediation technologies:

* Treatment Walls
* Surfactants / Cosolvents
* Bioremediation
* Hydraulic and Pneumatic Fracturing
* Thermal Enhancement
* In Situ Oxidation
* Electrokinetics
* Chemical Treatment
* Other Innovative Technologies

Groundwater Central is a portal for Internet-based groundwater information that consists of several integrated components that may be publicly accessed for no fee. The "smart" search engine provides a one-stop shop to browse for a wide variety of information from on-line publications and bibliographies, to presentations, case studies, research descriptions, data repositories, and vendors. Communication center components integrated into Groundwater Central© include a public bulletin board, and an "Ask An Expert" feature to facilitate customer access to professionals with expertise in a variety of relevant areas. Our aim is to significantly improve the efficiency of Internet research and communication for environmental professionals and the interested public. We hope you find this portal useful for your groundwater information needs. Remember to bookmark Groundwater Central for future visits!

Welcome to LNAPL Central©

The LNAPL Central© portion of the Groundwater Central© portal is being developed in conjunction with the Remediation Technology Development Forum (RTDF) Non-Aqueous Phase Liquid (NAPL) Cleanup Alliance , to assist stakeholders in more rapidly obtaining electronic information relevant to remediation of LNAPL. The RTDF NAPL Cleanup Alliance members recommend using this specialized search engine for your information needs related to subsurface LNAPL issues, in addition to your other favorite information sources. The Groundwater Central© search engine has been substantially populated with files and links to content related to LNAPL from multiple web sites, and will be continuously expanded after its initial launch.
