  • Generalization and formalization of the US EPA procedure for design of treated wastewater aquifer recharge basins: II. Retrofit of Souhil Wadi (Nabeul, Tunisia) pilot plant

    The ‘Cap Bon’ peninsula in Tunisia suffers from intensive tourist activities, high demographic increase and industrial development. As groundwater had been for a long time the main water source, aquifers had been subject to a severe depletion and seawater intrusion. Despite the measures taken prohibiting new drillings and water carrying by the construction of a waterway linking the ...

  • Feasibility of calcium peroxide as an oxygen releasing compound in treatment walls

    This research investigates the use of a proprietary formulation of calcium peroxide as an oxygen releasing compound in a treatment wall. Laboratory scale column studies evaluated the release of oxygen and the permeability effects resulting from a mixture of the calcium peroxide and a representative aquifer sand (40-mesh Unimin sand). Influent water was prepared at an average dissolved oxygen ...

  • Estimation of baseflow recession constants and effective hydraulic parameters in the karst basins of southwest China

    By analysing the hydrographs of karst basin outflow, it is possible to identify aquifer characteristics and, accordingly, the main features of a karst basin. In this study, 19 basins with daily observed flow discharges during drought periods between October and April 1973–1983 were selected to analyse the master recession curve (MRC). During a drought period, the MRCs were separated into segments ...

  • Dealing with spatial heterogeneity

    Heterogeneity can be dealt with by defining homogeneous equivalent properties, known as averaging, or by trying to describe the spatial variability of the rock properties from geologic observations and local measurements. The techniques available for these descriptions are mostly continuous Geostatistical models, or discontinuous facies models such as the Boolean, Indicator or Gaussian-Threshold ...

  • Numerical modelling of the environmental impact of landfill leachate leakage on groundwater quality – a field application

    Waste disposal facilities are mainly responsible for the gradual quality degradation of subsurface freshwater reservoirs. The main objective of this work is to identify the groundwater contamination risk due to potential leachate leakage and seepage beneath the municipal landfill of the City of Patras in Greece. A groundwater and leachate mass transport model of the underlying aquifer was ...

  • GCW as a means of efficiently remediating contaminated groundwater

    With the conventional 'Pump & Treat' method, groundwater is normally extracted from one or several wells, cleaned above ground and disposed off to the either groundwater or surface water. Even when extraction and injection wells are combined, predominantly higher perme-able areas are preferentially penetrated and more fine-grained structures are circumflowed. The bulk of contaminants are ...

  • Emulsified-Oil Biobarrier Provides Long-Term Treatment of Perchlorate/VOC Plume

    Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP) evaluation of a PRB containing emulsified oil substrate (EOS®). The pilot study was initiated in 2003 at the Alliant Techsystems, Inc., facility in Elkton, MD, to evaluate effectiveness of EOS technology for enhancing biodegration of perchlorate and chlorinated solvents. A single dose of low solubility, low viscosity, and slowly biodegradable ...

  • TCE/Fractured Bedrock Remediation in VA

    Site Summary At a manufacturing facility HRC was injected into a crystalline bedrock aquifer contaminated with TCE and its daughter products. Groundwater flow at this site is controlled by fractures in the crystalline rock with little or no permeability present beyond these fractures. The industrial facility had been in operation for over 30 years. Contamination levels reached 220 ppb of TCE so ...

  • Gasoline storage tank spill - Exxon

    LOCATION:  Millville, New JerseyPROJECT DATE:  June, 1975 to September, 1976CLIENT:  Exxon BACKGROUND: A gasoline spill from a storage tank was found when gasoline fumes were noticed in basements adjacent to the gasoline station. An undetermined amount of gasoline was lost to the shallow, unconfined sandy aquifer of high porosity and permeability. An extensive clay bed lay beneath ...
