Progress Highlights: November 1, 2014 - November 30, 2014

  • Maintenance of the treatment system continued, including cap maintenance, the addition of a high-density polyethylene liner and heater element repairs and replacement on top of the in-pile thermal desorption (IPTD) structure. These efforts allowed thermal treatment to advance.
  • Environmental monitoring of the Project site continued by USAID contractors and the Vietnam Ministry of National Defense’s Chemical Command and Vietnam Russia Tropical Centre (VRTC) to ensure contaminated soil, sediment, wastewater and dust do not leave the site, as well as to ensure the liquid vapor treatment plant is meeting Vietnamese effluent standards and project action levels.
  • Average Pile Temperature: 278 degrees Celsius. (Please note: Thermal treatment is behind schedule (below the remediation temperature goal) largely due to the effects of heavy rains experienced in Danang in late October.)

Progress Highlights: October 1, 2014 to October 30, 2014
