Part of the SERDP/ESTCP Environmental Remediation Technology book series (SERDP/ESTCP, volume 3)


Interactions between in situ chemical oxidation (ISCO) and other in situ remediation technologies, and optional approaches for coupling ISCO with bioremediation, surfactant/cosolvent flushing, air sparging, or thermal treatment.

Key Concepts

  • ISCO applied in combination with other remedial technologies, particularly when plans are formulated prior to implementing a remedy, may provide significant benefit over ISCO alone.

  • Enhanced in situ bioremediation and monitored natural attenuation are most frequently combined with ISCO.

  • ISCO may temporarily decrease aerobic and anaerobic microbial abundance and diversity, but these typically rebound with time.

  • ISCO combined with surfactants or cosolvents may enhance contaminant removal, though chemical compatibility of remedial agents must be considered.

  • Air sparging and thermal methods may interact synergistically with ISCO, while in situ chemical reduction acts in opposition to ISCO.
