Silver Oaks

Comparing the benefits and risks associated with the attempts to clean up Silver Oaks

benefits to clean up
Benefits to Clean-up
  • Make town, land safer for the citizens
  • Assure no more risk of contamination
  • Cleaner and Safer drinking water
  • Healthier environment and ecosystem
risks with clean up
Risks with Clean up
  • Transportation- movement of toxic material from one place to another
  • Possible “dual” site contamination
  • increased traffic risk
risks with clean up1
Risks with Clean up
  • Removal of contaminated soil causes large areas of debris and dangerous construction sites
  • Soil debris may make air temporarily contaminated
  • Area homes businesses affected by clean up
4 main ways of clean up
4 Main Ways of Clean up
  • Excavation- “Dig it all up and take away”
  • Incineration- “Dig it up and burn baby burn”
  • Containment- “Trap it and remove it”
  • Electrification- “Zap it to oblivion”
excavation
Excavation
  • Quickest Method
  • Removes all the Contamination
  • Contamination then transported to proper facility
  • GUARENTEES all pollution is gone
  • HIGHEST COST
  • Large destruction of homes/businesses
  • Soil would have to be replaced making cost extremely high
incineration
Incineration
  • Similar to Excavation
  • Burns Soil and Contaminated ground water
  • Eliminates travel concerns of moving pesticide
  • GUARENTEES Removal of Pesticide
  • Incinerator donated by chemical company
  • 3rd most costly plan
  • Filters in smokestack would eliminate most pollution
  • Burned soil would then be replaced into ground
containment
Containment
  • Entrapment of groundwater
  • Works slowly
  • Would take up to 15 years to reduce contamination levels
  • Trapped water then shipped and dumped into ocean
  • 2nd most costly method
  • Cost high due to monitoring needs and shipping of water
  • Limited Digging, less disruption of peoples lives

Barrier

electrification
Electrification
  • High energy electric field would be produced to remove chemical
  • Work 100 in lab setting
  • Lowest Cost
  • Unknown health effects of electric field on life forms
  • Would take 15 years to work
  • Eliminates most digging
  • Less homes and businesses affected
