Barnes, David L.; Laderach, Shawna R.; Showers, Charles . 2002. Treatment of Petroleum-Contaminated Soil in Remote, Cold, Wet Regions. 0271 2801. Missoula, MT: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Missoula Technology and Development Center. 56 p.

Discusses treatment of petroleum-contaminated soils in the Tongass and Chugach National Forests of Alaska, where climate, utility access, and accessibility present serious challenges. The report is not meant to be a "cookbook" for selecting a technology to treat contaminated soils, but provides guidance to help Forest Service engineers select the best technology. The treatment technologies discussed include: excavation and proper disposal, thermal desorption, incineration, soil washing, ex situ vapor extraction, composting, landfarming, soil vapor extraction, barometric pumping, and bioventing.

Keywords: composting, environmental engineering, excavation, incineration, landfarming, petroleum hydrocarbons, pollutants, polluted soils, pollution, pumping, remediation, treatment, washing
