Project Profile: World War II Memorial Project Groundwater Treatment System Washington, DC

In 2003, AdEdge Technologies began working closely with EarthTech, the assigned engineering firm responsible for specifying and selecting the various water treatment systems serving the new National World War II Monument in Washington, DC. Stormwater and groundwater control and treatment are essential aspects of this project given the location of the site on the Mall adjacent to the reflecting pool and Washington Monuments. Based on experience and approach, AdEdge was subsequently contracted by Walsh Construction, the General Contractor to provide the integrated groundwater treatment system for this high profile project. The needs for treatment arise for shallow groundwater collected by the subsurface drainage system inside a bentonite slurry cutoff wall surrounding the 11 acre site. Primary contaminants for treatment include iron, manganese, and arsenic. Water must be extracted and treated to meet the NPDES permitted discharge limits prior to final conveyance to the Potomac River which are below EPA drinking water maximum contaminant levels. The systems are located 20 feet below the memorial in a secured concrete vault containing other conveyance piping, pumps, and support systems for the Memorial.
