In this section you will find information about the technologies used during the investigation and cleanup efforts. Many of the technologies (such as the aerial magnetometry) assist with the detection of metal objects on or below ground surface. The objects range from scrap metal to buried munitions. Other technologies, such as monitoring wells, help the program team to determine the extent of contamination in a particular area.

The Impact Area Groundwater Study Program is always seeking improved and innovative technology to expedite the investigation and cleanup work. As new technologies are implemented, information about them will be available on this web site.
