Progress on Dissolved-Phase EDB Collapse in Target Capture Zone

The above graphic shows the decreasing EDB, or ethylene dibromide, concentrations in the Kirtland/Ridgecrest plume. The evidence of plume collapse and its decrease in mass is only within the pump and treat area for the past 3.5 years. Modeling, before the pump and treat method, showed the projected collapse of the plume. The plume capture model currently confirms the collapse by pump and treat, as seen here.
