Improved Water Quality A good arsenic filtration system ...

  • What classifies as water pollution and why is it an issue?

    The UN declared 2005-2015 as the International Decade for Action ‘Water for Life’. Yet each day thousands of people still die as a result of contaminated water. This does not even take into account the millions of organisms that perish every year thank to polluted water sources. Water pollution is a huge issue that is made more so by the fact that unfortunately, water is ...

  • The Influence of an Integrated Remedial System on Groundwater Hydrology

    ABSTRACT This paper summarizes the development of a remedial system designed to hydraulically contain and ultimately reduce a plume consisting of primarily 1,1,2,2-tetrachloroethane (1,1,2,2-TeCA). The system consists of groundwater circulating wells or extraction wells located in the core of the 1,1,2,2-TeCA plume to provide active source control, combined with monitored natural attenuation ...

  • Biobarriers for groundwater treatment: a review

    Biobarriers (BBs) are a new type of in situ technology for the remediation of contaminated groundwater. In recent years, this remediation technique has been more and more used in place of traditional Pump & Treat systems or other in situ technologies both in the USA and Europe. This work reviews the main experiences of BBs. The literature contains reports about tests ...

  • Analysis of TNT and RDX in groundwater

    MATRIX: Water ANALYTE: TNT and RDX LIMIT OF DETECTION: TNT 1 ppb (mg/L), RDX: 5 ppb (mg/L) BACKGROUND: This application describes a field screening method for determining TNT and RDX concentrations in water. The method uses solid phase extraction to remove and preconcentrate the analytes from water. In the method, a 2 ...


  • Contaminated Groundwater Cleaned by Granular Carbon System

  • Case study - Chlorinated groundwater treatment

    Problem A Fortune 50 company implemented a remedial project to collect and treat polluted groundwater from a site in Central New York, preventing the mitigation of impacted groundwater from flowing into local waterways. An engineering and construction firm was hired to design and build an effective, efficient groundwater treatment system. Collection of the polluted water would be done ...

  • Oil skimmer prevents groundwater pollution

    Idaho Recycling/Consulting and Associates (IRC) of Glenn's Ferry, ID helps small generators of industrial wastewater prevent groundwater pollution and comply with environmental regulations by recycling contaminated water, a method that is less expensive than disposing of fugitive oil, solvents, gasoline and other hydrocarbons. A typical IRC recycling system for such small generators as truck ...

  • The In Situ Bioremediation/Groundwater Remediation Process

    In-situ groundwater bioremediation is a technology that encourages growth and reproduction of indigenous microorganisms to enhance biodegradation of organic constituents in the saturated zone. In-situ groundwater bioremediation can effectively degrade organic constituents which are dissolved in groundwater and adsorbed onto the aquifer matrix. The Adventus In Situ Bioremediation/Groundwater ...


  • Full-scale SVE system operates in tandem with groundwater treatment

    Since 1993, SVE has been implemented using two designs at the TP Industrial, Inc. (TPI) site in Gardena, CA, to treat soil contaminated with chlorinated solvents. The SVE system was modified in 1997 to improve emissions control efficiency by using carbon adsorption units that treat effluent from an air-stripping system for treating site ground water. By the end of 2007, SVE had removed a ...

  • Case study - Gas plant groundwater remediation

    One-pass trenching method used for a gas plant groundwater remediation project Not many environmental engineers have heard of one-pass trenching and even fewer have actually applied this cutting-edge technology to environmental control and clean-up. However, a growing number of companies are starting to use this technology, resulting in decreased cost of installation and increased system ...

  • The impact of intentional stormwater infiltration on soil and groundwater

    ABSTRACTStormwater infiltration is a principle which is more and more utilized on urban sites in France. However, given the characteristics of urban surfaces, and notably the amounts of the different pollutants that stormwater is likely to contain, it is important to try to assess the impact of intentional stormwater infiltration systems on the soil, and on groundwater. To try to answer that ...

  • What Effect Does E-Waste Have On Groundwater?

    Groundwater is one of the most precious resources on Earth. Its yields supply water to nearly every community in the country, and without it, most of us would be driven to drastic measures to accommodate drought conditions. In fact, that very situation is happening in communities across the nation. As groundwater is increasingly negatively ...

  • In situ Chemical Oxidation: An Innovative Groundwater Remediation Technology

    A promising new technology, in situ Chemical Oxidation (ISCO), has the potential to supplant the more widely used pump-and-treat groundwater remediation technology by destroying groundwater contamination in situ (in place). ISCO is the process of oxidizing contaminants in the groundwater and soil by injecting water containing high concentrations of an oxidant to the site of the contamination. ...
