Ground Water Rehabilitation

Unfortunately, experience has shown that groundwater is often polluted with volatile chlorinated hydrocarbons and other organic solvents or organic substances introduced for agricultural purposes.

The chlorinated hydrocarbons most frequently found in groundwater are tri- and tetrachloroethylene (per), dichloromethane and 1.1.1-trichlorethane. Some of these substances are so stable, that they are still detectable after decades once introduced into groundwater and dispersed over a wide area.

The rehabilitation of groundwater contaminated with such dissolved organic substances, e.g. within the scope of groundwater conservation measures or the treatment of groundwater to obtain drinking water, is almost always carried out using activated carbon. At high contaminant concentrations, a stripper unit may be incorporated in advance of the activated carbon filter.
