The major goal of this project was to write the manual PhytoRemediate®: Phytoremediation Decision Guide for Transportation Engineers and the attached compact disk PhytoRemediate®: Training Module for Transportation Engineers to assist transportation engineers and other professionals in the applicability of phytoremediation as an effective method of remediation engineering design. This guide is not a design manual, but identifies the decision-making processes necessary for successful remediation of contaminated sites using phytoremediation.
A phytoremediation users' manual PhytoRemediate®: Phytoremediation Decision Guide for Transportation Engineers was developed to assist INDOT personnel in the areas of site assessment, plant species selection, plant establishment, system optimization, evaluation of remediation progress, and long-term maintenance.
PhytoRemediate®: Training Module for Transportation Engineers is intended to be a web-based workshop to provide the potential users with pictures, tutorials, and links to references that would be difficult to include in the user’s manual. .
