Abstract

Subsurface contamination with oil poses a threat to groundwater quality on the whole territory of Ukraine. The methods of search and prospecting of contaminated plums were analyzed. Oil behaviour in the subsurface and the methods of remediation were studied. The effectiveness of aviation kerosene removal was examined in a sandy column. Nonhazardous distances from a contamination source to water-supply wells for different hydrogeological conditions were determined by mathematical modelling. The case of drinking groundwater contamination with oil in Kherson City is examined.
