Note(s): A trichloroethylene (TCE, CHCl = CCl 2) underground storage tank was found to be leaking in October 1978. The unknown amount of TCE subsequently contaminated the groundwater at Vero Beach, Florida USA. This study was initiated to monitor the impacts of dewatering on the pollutants behavior in the aquifer, the assessment of contaminant removal efficiencies, and the impacts of contaminated water discharged to the canal and estuarine environment.
