  • Deep groundwater collection tenches by the bio-polymer drain method

    Introduction The installation of deep drainage trenches has long been a risk-filled and costly endeavor, conventional installation techniques involve dewatering, sheeting and shoring, and danger to personnel working in the trench from trench collapse. Recently, due to the public's concern for the environment and the need to preserve groundwater resources, there has been an increased demand ...

  • Bacterial growth and biofilm formation in household-stored groundwater collected from public wells

    The research was aimed at assessing changes in the number of bacteria and evaluating biofilm formation in groundwater collected from public wells, both aspects directly related to the methods of household storage. In the research, water collected from Cretaceous aquifer wells in Toruń (Poland) was stored in a refrigerator and at room temperature. Microbiological parameters of the water ...

  • Groundwater arsenic in Chimaltenango, Guatemala

    In the Municipality of Chimaltenango, Guatemala, we sampled groundwater for total inorganic arsenic. In total, 42 samples were collected from 27 (43.5%) of the 62 wells in the municipality, with sites chosen to achieve spatial representation throughout the municipality. Samples were collected from household faucets used for drinking water, and sent to the USA for analysis. The only site ...

  • Dynamics of nitrate & perchlorate in groundwater.

    The Apache Powder Superfund Site is located in Cochise County, Arizona, approximately 50 miles southeast of Tucson. The site was listed on the National Priorities List pursuant to CERCLA in 1990. Principal groundwater chemicals of concern (COCs) include nitrate-nitrogen (nitrate-N) and perchlorate. Concentrations of nitrate-N exceeding 500 mg/l and 2,300 mg/l have been detected in the “shallow ...

  • Who Owns Groundwater?

    California’s drought underscores the need to improve how the state - and the rest of us - divvy up a resource in demand. Grapevines march across wires strung along rolling hills, their little trunks improbably supporting heavy black fruit. Cindy Steinbeck’s family has been farming this land since 1920. They grow Zinfandel, Viognier, Cabernet, Merlot, and Petite Syrah grapes but are ...

  • MTBE Groundwater BioTreatability Study

    The following graph illustrates the analytical results of a bio-treatability study conducted on MTBE. A two-liter groundwater sample was collected from the client's service station in western Pennsylvania. We tested three different combinations of microbe and nutrient products in order to determine which products are the most effective. The results indicate that MTBE can be bioremediated by our ...

  • Getting your money’s worth - collecting and utilizing accurate flow monitoring data for collection system analysis and modeling

    A comprehensive flow monitoring network can provide powerful insight about the performance of a sanitary sewer collection system. Accurate flow monitoring data reveals numerous system details, such as sewer usage patterns, the presence of sediments, groundwater infiltration, rainfall-dependent inflow and infiltration, stream intrusion, and sewer exfiltration or leakages. Knowledge of these ...
