Short description: Horizontal remediation wells (HRWs) are installed below ground parallel to the ground surface or at a shallow angle using horizontal directional drilling (HDD). HRWs offer an alternative to the installation of conventional vertical wells or trenching, particularly where access to soil and groundwater contamination is impeded by surface or near-surface obstructions. HRWs have been used to sample and treat contamination beneath buildings, utility lines, roads, railyards, airport runways, landfills, tank farms, surface water bodies, and sensitive ecological areas. Because of the setback distance, drilling and well installation can occur without interrupting activities at active facilities
