Document Description
NOTE: Review Per Lead Under the oversight of the Regional Board, International Risk Assumption-Downey (IRAD), the Discharger, proposes to implement semi-continuous injections of an election donor amendment and bioaugmentation culture, which involves the addition of selected non-pathorgenic culture (referred to as Shaw's SDC-9 culture, or SiREM's KB-1) in select areas to facilitate reductive dechlorination of chlorinated volatile organice compounds (VOCs), to remediate VOC-impacted groundwater at the former NASA Industrial Plant (NIP) site. The proposed bioaugmentation pilot study is to be conducted by periodic pulsed addition of carbohydrate solution and bioaugmentation cultures into wells that comprise Line 1000, in the southern portion of the site. The periodic/pulsed injection of carbohydrate solution is expected to minimize the potential for biofouling.
