Measuring groundwater level or depth-to-water is critically important for identifying long term trends, including declining water levels, saltwater intrusion, seasonal variations, aquifer recharge, artificial aquifer storage and recovery, and level status for drinking water. Receiving groundwater data via remote data transmission from one of the many OTT telemetry options available saves time and resources spent in the field.
WesTech provides process equipment for the sand aggregate industries including thickeners, screening and separation, and mixing technologies which provide for production of cement, and a myriad of materials for the construction industries.
The content of water-soluble forms of inorganic cations (ammonium, potassium, calcium, sodium, magnesium) is one of the substantial characteristics in agrochemical, land reclamation, and sanitary assessments of soils (arable, hayland, pasturable, forest nursery soils). The cation balance should be controlled during ecological soil monitoring for the human activity impact assessment.
Total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPH) is a term used to describe a large family of several hundred chemical compounds that originally come from crude oil; the main and most specific part of these compounds are non-polar and slightly polar hydrocarbons of the aliphatic, aromatic, and alicyclic structure.
Analysis of soils and bottom sediments for mercury content is one of the most common analyses in the monitoring of environmental pollution. Background mercury concentrations in these objects are 10–100 μg/kg and in the polluted areas they exceed 10,000 μg/kg.
Presence of fatty acid methyl esters (FAME) in diesel fuel or domestic heating fuel (both hereinafter referred to as diesel fuel) is a signal of blending with biodiesel. The control of FAME content in diesel fuel is an essential and actual task because of the need of the right fuel identification and registration of possible FAME impact on engines and fuel systems. To control the compliance one of the most accurate, rapid and simple methods is EN 14078:2014.
Spraying Envirotac on loose soil binds the soil particles and does not let the them be carried into the air, preventing dust pollution, thus reducing dust allergies and other respiratory problems. One application will control dust for over a year at a fraction of the cost being spent maintaining with water.
Purolite is at the forefront in meeting the new challenges of purifying water for potable water use. We continue to develop specialized ion exchange resins and adsorbent solutions focused on reducing waste and operating costs. The wide variety of contaminants needing removal often requires a customized approach.
Envirotac line of polymers has been effectively used as a sub-base for roads, out-performing a standard rock base in performance and significantly in cost. Envirotac has been a preferred choice by many Departments of Transportation, replacing rock base and then having a cinder seal or chip seal sprayed over.
Being able to trust your instruments to make quick, easy and accurate measurements in the field is key when dealing with regulatory requirements. The InfraCal2 infrared analyzer is the choice of experts for measuring oil in produced water; oil contamination in soil; and fats oil and greases in waste streams.
Several industries and industrial processes may contribute to soil and groundwater contamination. AdEdge Technologies has supplied filtration equipment for several remediation efforts to remove arsenic, lead, and other inorganic contaminants to meet state and federal mandates.
Tidal fluctuations and wave action can cause major damage to coastlines and off-shore construction projects. Nonwoven and specialty woven geotextiles can be used as a filter under layer beneath stone/ rock armour. Also riprap or synthetic erosion control mats are used to control erosion by disallowing the sub grade soil particles to erode. The geotextiles prevent erosion carried off by runoff water or other erosive waters, such as waves, stream flow, etc.
Sites with soil contamination often are also subject to contamination of the groundwater. Groundwater contamination can be very complex and a thorough understanding of the geology of the aquifer and contaminant sources is critical in planning remediation efforts. EnterVol offers C Tech’s proven technology within the ArcGIS environment.
Everyone has a responsibility to care for the environment to reduce the levels of pollution, including businesses that daily release emissions into the air and the ground. This is why we provide a full-service environmental testing service to help businesses identify problems and resolve them so they operate in the most environmentally-friendly method possible. We offer air emission testing, emissions monitoring services and stack emissions testing to businesses of all sizes.
In urban areas can geotextiles be found in most diverse applications. The geotextiles are being used in access and paved roads, sport fields, riverbed protection, drainage trenches and pond liner protection. The geotextiles are also being used in vertical drainage applications. Groundwater and excess rainwater can be controlled well when geotextiles are properly used. More and more floods cause serious damage to urban areas.
