Technology NewsAMEC, Albuquerque, N.M., has finished construction of three groundwater cleanup systems at a federal Superfund site in northern New Mexico and is now pilot testing bioremediation techniques prior to full-scale operation. The $3.8 million project was designed to treat a plume of perchloroethylene (PCE) contamination that stretched three quarters of a mile from Norge Town Dry Cleaners toward the Rio Grande River. Extending as much as 260 feet below ground surface, it was estimated that the plume has affected at least 280 million gallons of water, forced the closure of two city supply wells and threatened to spread into the river.
