  • City of Warm Springs, Georgia - Case Study

    The City of Warm Springs is a small community of approximately 500 residents located in central Georgia. In 2010, water testing found a radium level between 8 - 11 pCi/L and a Gross Alpha level of 25 pCi/L, both above state and USEPA drinking water regulations of 5 pCi/L and 15 pCi/L respectively. Engineering Management Inc (EMI) conducted a pilot test in late 2010 to test a manganese dioxide ...

  • Physical, chemical, bacteriological and radioisotopic parameters from springs and wells around Jocotitlan volcano, Mexico

    Samples from seven springs and two wells around Jocotitlan volcano (Mexico), mainly used as drinking water supplies, were studied for physical, chemical, bacteriological and radioisotopic parameters. The temperature of the majority of the water was 5°C higher than the average atmospheric temperature of the zone, indicating a geothermal potential. The water type was bicarbonated mixed, related to ...

  • FRACKING: Freeing Energy Resources versus Polluting the Earth and Public Health with Radiation and Toxic Chemicals?

    Fracking demands the use of millions of gallons of water, precious drinking water, and sand infused with up to 1,000 different toxic chemicals to fracture the shale rock and release the trapped gas or oil. The wastewater, brine, and sludge are then returned to the surface and in need of disposal. Unfortunately there is not yet a clear and safe method of disposal or storage. Among these chemicals ...

The EPCCHOA is located on the South East side of Lake Tahoe at Elk ...

  • Ionising Radiation

    Introduction The energy level of some types of radiation is high enough so that when they interact with matter they cause the formation of electrically charged particles or ion-pairs and break molecular bonds. These so-called ionising radiations are by their nature potentially harmful to life; at high doses they can be lethal and at lower doses can cause genetic damage. Ionising radiation occurs ...
