Pump & Treat Non-Discharge Groundwater Remediation 

Non-discharge groundwater remediation systems are groundwater treatment systems that extract and treat contaminated groundwater. These include closed-loop groundwater remediation systems and typically use infiltration galleries or injection wells.  This does not include in-situ groundwater remediation wells, as defined by NCAC 15A 2C .0209(e)(3)(C), unless such a system includes the withdrawal, treatment, and reintroduction of the treated groundwater. In-situ groundwater remediation wells are regulated by the Underground Injection Control Program.  Click here to access the application form.
