  • Successful Application of HRC in a Fractured Formation in Tennessee (PDF)

    Under Tennessee’s Voluntary Cleanup program, a pilot program was successfully implemented using hydrogen-release compound (HRC, Regenesis, Inc.) to address perchloroethene (PCE) and trichloroethene (TCE) contamination in groundwater. Flow direction was known generally, however the fractured nature of the formation precluded specific knowledge of consistent flow across the site. The HRC injection ...

  • Investigation on Potential Groundwater Impacts and Influence of Local Hydrogeology on Natural Attenuation of Leachate at a Municipal Landfill

    The influence of local hydrogeology on natural attenuation of contaminants from landfill leachates in shallow aquifer underlying the active Olusosun landfill base in Lagos was investigated. In addition, the level of groundwater contamination in the vicinity of the landfill and of leachate migration pattern in groundwater down gradient of the landfill base was equally assessed. Landfill leachate ...

  • Arsenic in private drinking water wells: an assessment of jurisdictional regulations and guidelines for risk remediation in North America

    Arsenic is a known carcinogen found globally in groundwater supplies due to natural geological occurrence. Levels exceeding the internationally recognized safe drinking water standard of 10 μg/L have been found in private drinking water supplies in many parts of Canada and the United States. Emerging epidemiological evidence confirms groundwater arsenic to be a significant health concern, ...

  • Why it’s time to elevate groundwater

    Groundwater stored in the earth’s crust underpins all our lives – the ultimate source of freshwater for billions has become victim of over-extraction and the ultimate sink for pollutants.   For too long, not enough has been done to regulate the use of this precious, on-demand resource and manage disposal of waste. If rates of groundwater depletion have tripled in the past 3 ...

  • In situ remediation of BTEX, MTBE and TPH using EAS as a terminal electron acceptor

    EAS, A Paradigm Shift in the Remediation of Petroleum Hydrocarbons The conventional wisdom for remediation of aquifers contaminated with petroleum hydrocarbons (PHCs) is to add oxygen. A recent EPA / British Petroleum study, however, concluded that most hydrocarbon plumes are anaerobic and depleted of sulfate and, therefore, adding oxygen is disadvantageous. Other studies have drawn ...

  • ITRC technical regulatory guidelines for passive diffusion sampling, 2004

    Polyethylene diffusion bag (PDB) samplers are low-density polyethylene bags containing deionized water, used to collect water samples in groundwater wells for laboratory analyses of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). PDB samplers are passive devices, relying on the movement of groundwater from the aquifer or water-bearing zone through the screen or open interval of a well. VOCs in groundwater ...

  • Arsenic geochemistry in a biostimulated aquifer: An aqueous speciation study

    Stimulating microbial growth through the use of acetate injection wells at the former uranium mill site in Rifle, Colorado, USA, has been shown to decrease dissolved uranium (VI) concentrations through bacterial reduction to immobile uranium (IV). Bioreduction also changed the redox chemistry of site groundwater, altering the mobility of several other redox‐sensitive elements present in the ...

  • Ethanol Production Plant Monitors Impacts to Water Supply and Stays in Compliance

    Application Under current ethanol plant configurations, water use for ethanol production ranges from 4.0 to 6.8 gallons of water required per gallon of ethanol produced. With the average new plant producing 120 million gallons of ethanol per year, water yields in excess of 1,000 gallons per minute are required; therefore adequate water supply is essential to the operation of an ethanol ...

  • Elevated and variable groundwater iron in rural northwestern Bangladesh

    Over the past 30 years, tubewells have become a ubiquitous source of potable groundwater in South Asia. Considered safer than surface water, groundwater naturally contains minerals that may impact human health; however, few data exist on tubewell water mineral content or its association with human nutritional or health conditions. We surveyed iron concentration in tubewell water across a 435 km2, ...

  • Advancing Green Technology case study

    Challenge: A subject of considerable research in recent years, sulfate reducing bacteria have been demonstrated to be a dominant factor in the natural anaerobic biodegradation of petroleum hydrocarbons dissolved in groundwater. Antea Group has conducted extensive pilot testing at hundreds of sites across the United States that demonstrate the benefits of enhancing ...

  • India - Groundwater governance case study

    Groundwater comprises 97 percent of the worlds readily accessible freshwater and provides the rural, urban, industrial and irrigation water supply needs of 2 billion people around the world. As the more easily accessed surface water resources are already being used, pressure on groundwater is growing. In the last few decades, this pressure has been evident through rapidly increasing pumping of ...

  • A new deterministic method for groundwater mapping using a digital elevation model

    Accurate knowledge of groundwater levels and flow conditions in the vicinity of groundwater-dependent terrestrial ecosystems (GWDTE-s) is required for identifying groundwater dependency and comparing the present situation with the optimal one, as part of the status assessment of groundwaters according to the EU Water Framework Directive. Geostatistical methods (like kriging or cokriging) may ...

  • Nutrient mobilisation and losses related to the groundwater level in low peat soils

    The changes in dissolved organic carbon (DOC), N-NO3, N-NH4 and P-PO4 concentrations in response to fluctuations in the groundwater table were investigated in the peatlands of Biebrza National Park and some of its surrounding sites. The lowering of the groundwater table during summer time was accompanied by an increase in P-PO4 and N-NH4 concentrations, and in some cases they were exceptionally ...

  • Recharge mechanism and hydrochemistry evaluation of groundwater in the Nuaimeh area, Jordan, using environmental isotope techniques

    The relationship between the stable isotopic and chemical composition of precipitation and groundwater was studied in the Nuaimeh area of the Ajloun Highlands in Jordan. The isotopic composition values of precipitation and groundwater are almost identical. The spatial variation of stable isotopes in precipitation is mainly due to the effect of seasonal temperature, altitude and amount. The ...
