  Monitored Natural Attenuation of MTBE as a Risk Management Option at Leaking Underground Storage Tank Sites (89 pp, 4.9 MB) (EPA/600/R-04/179) January 2005

 

This report reviews the current state of knowledge on the transport and fate of MTBE in ground water, with emphasis on the natural processes that can be used to manage the risk associated with MTBE in ground water or that contribute to natural attenuation of MTBE as a remedy. It provides recommendations on the site characterization data that are necessary to manage risk or to evaluate monitored natural attenuation (MNA) of MTBE, and it illustrates procedures that can be used to work up data to evaluate risk or assess MNA at a specific site.
