DNAPL (corrective action)

NOTE: DNAPL is an abbreviation for Dense Non-Aqueous Phase Liquid. Many organic solvents are denser than water, hence the designation "dense". DNAPLs sink through the water column and collect in depressions at the base of the water table. They flow along the bottom of the water table aquifer and can move in directions that are different than groundwater flow. DNAPL sources are difficult to locate and remediate, primarily for these reasons. They will biodegrade, usually by the process of cometabolism in which the microorganisms also require a hydrocarbon source for energy.
