Monitoring includes sampling and analyzing water from the pump and treat unit and from selected wells according to a plan approved by the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ). As a result of the 5-year Review by the MDEQ in November 2007, the active remediation phase is through 2015 followed by post remediation (natural attenuation) in 2016 through 2020 to continue the degradation process for the remaining groundwater contaminates. The analytical data is presented to the MDEQ on an annual basis.
