WESTERVILLE, Ohio — The National Ground Water Association (NGWA) awarded Essential Management Solutions LLC of Evergreen, Colorado, with the Outstanding Groundwater Project Award for excellence in restoring contaminated groundwater, according to a press release.

The winning project took place from 2009-2013 at the former Herington Army Airfield located in Herington, Kansas, to remediate trichloroethylene (TCE), which impacted the overburden soil and three underlying bedrock units at the site, resulting in a dissolved plume extending around six miles off-site, stated the release.

The release reported that the project implemented an innovative, continuous oxidant injection method that evolved from an original attempt at this approach elsewhere in 2007.

The award will be presented in December at the 2014 NGWA Groundwater Expo and Annual Meeting in Las Vegas, noted the release.
