Fry Canyon Study Area
The Fry Canyon site has many advantages for the field demonstration of reactive chemical barriers:
- The site is managed by BLM;
- The BLM has granted a right-of-way to construct demonstration facilities on the site;
- The site has not been reclaimed;
- The site is in a remote area and does not present a hazard to domestic water supplies or known biological resources;
- There are sufficient volumes and areas of shallow contaminated ground water to support cost effective installation and monitoring of multiple in-situ chemical barriers; and
- The USEPA gave the site a No Further Action Planned (NFRAP) rating in 1990, thus preventing conflicting activities at the site during field demonstration.
