  • American Water Works Association NJ meeting takes place in Atlantic City

    As the fourth Nor'easter of March blew into New Jersey, hundreds of professionals in the water industry made their way to Atlantic City for the 83rd Annual Conference of the NJ chapter of the AWWA. Speakers and poster authors were set to discuss topics such as PFAS, new and advanced water technologies, updated regulations, and case studies. But due to the inclimate weather, a couple of sessions ...

  • Groundwater Remediation

    Groundwater remediation or clean-up is required when concentrations of contaminants exceed or are expected to exceed predetermined levels for the type of resource that is impacted (Grossman et.al., 2008). For example, lead levels in drinking water should not exceed the EPA action level of 0.015 mg/L. What caused the high levels of lead? How can the lead be removed from the aquifer? (Grossman ...

  • In Search of Ideal Groundwater Treatment

    As surface water supplies become increasingly polluted and difficult to treat, the use of groundwater continues to increase. Every day, more than 77 billion gal of water are withdrawn from aquifers for a variety of uses including human consumption. Worldwide, groundwater makes up 95% of available freshwater, and nearly half of the U.S. population receives all or part of its drinking water from ...

  • Brackish groundwater desalination on the rise

    Brackish water is water that is more saline than fresh. It’s not quite as saline as seawater, but it’s still too salty to be used without treatment. Typically, advanced treatment technologies — reverse osmosis and ultrafiltration, as well as other membrane-based technologies — are needed to purify and desalinate brackish groundwater before its use. Brackish groundwater ...

  • Different Methods of Groundwater Remediation

    Groundwater remediation is essential in a wide range of businesses, from drinking water extraction to mining. It’s hugely important to have the best water treatment system in place to help. Here are a few different methods that are used in water remediation that you may need to incorporate into your plan. Physical Remediation Water purification starts on a ...

  • 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 ...

  • A novel approach to remediating contaminated groundwater by reusing industrial co-products

    This paper presents a novel approach to remediating contaminated groundwater by utilising industrial co-products. The materials discussed include paper clay and steel slag, and the primary water contamination considered is heavy metal contamination. Paper clay was determined to have the potential for adsorbing heavy metals, and in compacted form could achieve permeability values within the ...

  • Lead contamination in soil and groundwater in and around a lead processing industry: a case study

    Environmental pollution is of major concern across the world, which is affected by a variety of contaminants. Lead is one of the major heavy metals used in industrial activity. Unscientific handling and disposal of lead bearing residues or lead waste has led to contamination of the surrounding soil and water environment. A detailed investigation of soil and groundwater was carried out in and ...

  • Food industry needs to step up on responsible groundwater use

    Californians are all too familiar with what happens when water is not treated as the precious resource it is. But most of us are unaware of the enormous power we have through our day-to-day purchases, social media campaigns and petition drives to push food companies to take more responsibility in protecting global water supplies. Food production, the world’s biggest water user, is a major ...

  • Contamination of groundwater and the risk to human health

    Groundwater is a major source of drinking water in many parts of the world. In industrialised countries, there is increasing concern that groundwater reserves are being contaminated by industrial effluents and the chemical pesticides and fertilizers used in intensive farming. This paper compares some of the existing guidelines for acceptable concentrations of certain common contaminants in ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...
