Preferred Term:

soil flushing

Soil flushing refers to applying a liquid flushing agent to contaminated soil to physically or chemically remove contaminants. The flushing agent is allowed to percolate into the soil and enhance the transport of contaminants to groundwater extraction wells for recovery. This technology is most applicable for soluble organics and metals at a low to medium concentration that are distributed over a wide area.
