  • Project profile - uranium treatment system Middletown Springs Elementary School Vermont

    Background The Middletown Springs Elementary School in Vermont is located in an area of the U.S. very susceptible to the formation of naturally-occurring uranium. Due to the high levels of uranium detected in the well water serving the School, it was placed on a “Do-not-Drink Advisory”. AdEdge was contacted by Otter Creek Engineering in June 2009 to assist the School in ...

  • Exposure assessment of metal intakes from drinking water relative to those from total diet in Japan

    Daily intakes of 17 metals (boron, aluminium, chromium, manganese, nickel, copper, zinc, arsenic, selenium, molybdenum, cadmium, antimony, lead, uranium, magnesium, calcium, and iron) via drinking water and total diet were investigated in six cities in Japan. The daily metal intakes were estimated and compared with tolerable daily intake (TDI) values proposed by the WHO or Joint FAO/WHO Expert ...

  • [INFOGRAPHIC] Quench water coolers can help eliminate common water dangers

    Americans are a thirsty population and water continues to be the most popular drink of choice in the United States. In fact, according to Beverage Marketing, Americans are consuming water in greater quantities than ever before, drinking 1.2 times more water than they were a decade ago. This increase has led to a total of 91 billion gallons of water consumed in 2011, an astronomical amount. ...

  • Heavy Metals Water Testing Powered by DNA

    Water pollution is a worldwide problem affecting developing and developed countries alike. Heavy metal contaminants are one prevalent type of water pollutant. They are persistent in the environment once d is charged and removal from source waters is necessary to ensure a clean drinking water supply. The problem of heavy metal pollution arises from several sources. Heavy metals such as uranium can ...

  • Elk Point Country Club CC HOA, Nevada - Case Study

    In early March, 2009 after an evaluation period, AdEdge Water Technologies, LLC. was selected among other alternatives and contracted by Elk Point Country Club Community (EPCCHOA) to provide a packaged treatment system for uranium removal that complied with the Nevada Department of Environmental Protection (NDEP) regulations. The EPCCHOA is located on the South East side of Lake Tahoe at Elk ...

  • Strategy of deriving 'wealth from waste' from concentrated brine of desalination plant

    Research and technological developments are being pursued vigorously all over the world to reduce the cost of desalinated water. Thermal and membrane-based desalination processes are very well known and plants are being operated to augment the demand of fresh water essential for drinking in water-scarce countries and to sustain the industrial processes. Any further improvement in energy reduction ...

  • Removal of lead and chromium from aqueous solution by bacillus circulans biofilm

    Contamination of the aquatic environment by heavy metals is a worldwide environmental problem. The pollutants of serious concern include lead, chromium, mercury, uranium, selenium, zinc, arsenic, cadmium, gold, silver, copper and nickel, due to their arcinogenic and mutagenic nature (Leung et al., 2000). Many industries such as coating, automotive, aeronautical, steel, textile dyeing, leather ...

  • The effect of quench on Quantitating Alpha Radionuclides by Liquid Scintillation Counting

    Detecting and quantitating alpha emitting radionuclides are routine tasks in nuclear energy and environmental monitoring. For this purpose, liquid scintillation counting (LSC) is an excellent method because alphas are counted with nearly 100% counting efficiency with low backgrounds, even with severe quenching. Quenching agents such as inorganic acids, organic acids, and extractive scintillators ...

  • 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 ...

  • Environment and Health

    Public concerns, evidence from research and increasing scientific knowledge are all driving widespread discussions on environment and health problems. The issue of environment and health is characterised by multi-causality with different strengths of association. This means that the links between exposures and their health consequences depend on the environmental pollutants and diseases being ...

  • 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 ...

  • Assessment of the Environmental Impact of Military Activities During the Yugoslavia Conflict
