The paper deals with a sandy confined aquifer of alluvial origin contaminated by vinyl chloride and located in the Po Valley immediately to the south of the Po River and 5 km to the north of the city of Ferrara (northern Italy). The investigation identified, inside a mainly urbanized area, a plume with a length of 1.7 km and a maximum width of 0.3 km with vinyl chloride (VC) concentrations of up to more than 11 000 ppb and total absence of other chlorinated ethanes, ethenes, and ethylene. To optimize the VC analysis, short-term low-flow purging using peristaltic and inertial pumps were used to collect samples.

Abstract

The paper deals with a sandy confined aquifer of alluvial origin contaminated by vinyl chloride and located in the Po Valley immediately to the south of the Po River and 5 km to the north of the city of Ferrara (northern Italy). The investigation identified, inside a mainly urbanized area, a plume with a length of 1.7 km and a maximum width of 0.3 km with vinyl chloride (VC) concentrations of up to more than 11 000 ppb and total absence of other chlorinated ethanes, ethenes, and ethylene. To optimize the VC analysis, short-term low-flow purging using peristaltic and inertial pumps were used to collect samples.
