Soil vapor extraction (SVE) is an in situ remediation strategy used to clean up petroleum contaminated soils. An SVE vacuum pump (blower) is used to apply vacuum to vertical or horizontal screened extraction wells installed in or near the contamination source. Air moves through the soil volatilizing contaminants dispersed above the water table. The vapor is pulled into the SVE well and discharged from the blower to a treatment device.
