Glossary entry:Circulation Wells (EURODEMO)
Meaning in EUGRIS: Circulating wells provide a technique for subsurface remediation by creating a three-dimensional circulation pattern of the ground water. Groundwater is drawn into a well through one screened section and is pumped through the well to a second screened section where it is reintroduced to the aquifer. The flow direction through the well can be specified as either upward or downward to accommodate site-specific conditions. In addition to groundwater treatment, circulation well systems can provide simultaneous vadose zone treatment in the form of bioventing or soil vapor extraction.
