Html 16 GROUNDWATER AND SOIL CLEANUP water and soil cleanup at DOE sites and are reviewed briefly in Chapter 5 of this report. However, technical problems also have limited DOE’s progress and are the principal focus of this report. Technologies for remedying many of the types of soil and groundwater contamination problems found at DOE facilities are in the early stages of development. This report focuses on three key categories of contaminants commonly found in soil and groundwater at DOE installations: (1) metals, (2) radionuclides, and (3) dense nonaqueous-phase liquids (DNAPLs), which are oily liquids that are denser than water.

Like other industries, DOE frequently disposed of wastes in landfills, lagoons, or underground injection wells, and spills of these by-products were not uncommon. These practices ultimately led to widespread groundwater and soil contamination across the weapons complex. At DOE facilities, the contamination problem was exacerbated by the veil of secrecy and the resultant lack of environmental oversight associated with the nuclear weapons production program (CERE, 1995; DOE, 1997). In part because of policies designed to preserve the secrecy of the nuclear weapons production process, DOE and its predecessor agencies were exempt from environmental laws for most of the nearly five decades between World War II and the end of the Cold War.
