Remediation of the Wells G and H Superfund Site, Woburn, Massachusetts
E.S. Bair, M.A. Metheny 2002 Ground Water vol. 40, no 6, p. 657-668.

This article gives a detailed description of the sources and distributions of TCE and PCE at the Woburn superfund site. It also describes the various types of remediation systems being used to recover the contaminants, the hydrogeologic reasons why different systems are used in different settings, and presents tables and graphs of the amounts of recovered contaminants. It is a good compliment to other information available about this case because it shows what is being done to clean up the aquifer, how much the remediation costs, and the success of the various methods used. Tabulation of the mass of recovered VOCs at each of the properties as of 2001.
