Cable terminations, junctions, or connectors having a cable affixed therein are provided, which include an internal cavity that is capable of (1) holding a selected volume of remediation fluid and (2) supplying it to the cable. Several embodiments of the cavity are capable of holding the remediation fluid under pressure for prolonged periods of time and through various environmental conditions such as temperature, moisture and sun exposure. Several embodiments of the internal cavity are divided into two or more chambers that are in physical communication through the opposition of pressure but which are chemically isolated. In several embodiments, an actuation device, such as a spring or compressed gas, pressurizes the fluid. Throughout the embodiments, individual access port(s) provide controlled access to the various internal chambers.
