Short description: The study investigated the long-term performance of elemental iron as a reactive material for the removal of uranium in passive groundwater remediation systems. Using 237U as an indicator, the movement of a contamination front through a test column was monitored without sampling. The resultant data enabled the calculation of the lifetime for permeable reactive barriers (PRB) using iron for uranium removal.
