Ozone Injection

Ozone injection is a form of chemical oxidation that breaks down targeted organic chemicals into carbon dioxide and water.

Ozone is generated from fresh air within the treatment building and delivered directly to the injection points. Ozone readily dissolves into the groundwater where it chemically consumes the contaminants.

Ozone is injected sequentially through a network of injection wells into the groundwater behind the barrier wall in OU-1.
