The global attempt to protect and restore the major water resources encouraged hydrologists to develop new, simple and effective aquifer remediation methods. A new in-situ remediation procedure is proposed to remove Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) dissolved in groundwater. This is accomplished by injection of air into a well, using a combined technique of air-lift pumping with a form of vapor stripping. The feasibility of the proposed method was analyzed using concepts of mass transfer of VOCs from water to air-bubbles and transport of VOCs in porous media.
