Sources of hazardous chemicals in the subsurface may pose significant risks to human health and the environment. Of particular concern are light non-aqueous phase liquid (LNAPL) source zones that may contain considerable chemical mass, and pose potential risks via direct exposure to LNAPL, vapour migration / intrusion and dissolved-phase impact to controlled waters. Spills of hydrocarbon fuels and oils form the most common examples. Remediation of such sites requires effective source zone management to achieve successful outcomes.
