A full-scale cleanup was performed using SVE to treat MTBE from a UST site in Atwood, Kansas. Soil at the site consists of 0.3-5.5 m (1-18 ft) of silt and clay overlying 5.5-15.25 m (18-50 ft) of sand and gravel. The SVE system consisted of eight vapor extraction wells, installed to a depth of 3.66 m (12 ft) below ground surface. Operation of the SVE system began in February 1994 and the system is currently operational. As of June 2003, the concentration of MTBE in the groundwater has been reduced from 480 to 93 ^g/L (an 80% reduction). The most recent cost data available depict a total remediation cost of USD298,040.31
