Short description: Published reports and conference presentations of characterization and remediation of contaminated ground water in fractured bedrock sites are collected and summarized in the website. The site contains 90 case studies, which are evenly split between pilot studies and full scale application. Almost half of the sites have, or are suspected of having NAPL. Over a third of site managers have chosen bioremediation and one quarter have chosen pump and treat and another quarter have chosen oxidation for a remediation technology. Only one technical Impracticability waiver has been requested and five No Further Action certificates were issued by the state regulatory agencies. Seventy-five percent of the sites are located in New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, and Pennsylvania.
