The Cápiro lab receives a SERDP grant to: 1.) improve our fundamental understanding of the natural attenuation of chlorinated solvents in complex groundwater systems over long (i.e., > 30 years) time frames; 2.)identify conditions where transition from active to more passive remediation (i.e., monitored natural attenuation [MNA]) can be accelerated; and 3. develop predictive models and tools that can be used to support site transition decisions leading to more efficient and cost effective management of sites impacted by chlorinated solvents.
