  • GroundWater Markup Language (GWML) – enabling groundwater data interoperability in spatial data infrastructures

    Increasing stress on global groundwater resources is leading to new approaches to the management and delivery of groundwater data. These approaches include the deployment of a Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) to enable online data interoperability amongst numerous and heterogeneous data sources. Often an important component of an SDI is a global domain schema, which serves as a central structure ...

  • OSU Researchers Deploy Stevens Equipment in Study of Green Infrastructure Treatment for Groundwater Runoff

    Stormwater runoff pollution is a serious issue that faces almost every urban and suburban environment. In older city infrastructure, runoff from roofs, parking lots, and streets flows directly into the sewer system and must be handled by the municipal wastewater treatment facility, increasing the amount of work the system must undertake. For the past 30 years, the infrastructure for stormwater ...

  • Groundwater data network interoperability

    Water data networks are increasingly being integrated to answer complex scientific questions that often span large geographical areas and cross political borders. Data heterogeneity is a major obstacle that impedes interoperability within and between such networks. It is resolved here for groundwater data at five levels of interoperability, within a Spatial Data Infrastructure architecture. ...

  • Necessary driving forces for infrastructure sustainability

    The forces and complex interactions that hinder and promote the application of sustainable infrastructures are discussed along with changes that are needed in our economic-mindset for evaluating project costs. Some existing sustainable projects result from favourable economics. However, many fall in the trash basket as a result of so-called unfavourable economics. One of the key driving forces ...

  • 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 ...

  • Influence of global warming on coastal infrastructural instability

    The increasing infrastructure instability is an important issue in relation to the influences of global climate change in urban areas. A serious issue pertaining to this is the dual nature of damage triggered by events combined with climate change and natural hazards. For example, catastrophic damage could result from the combination of global warming with a great earthquake, which is a ...

  • An Infrastructure Grows · Decentralized Treatment and Recycling Domestic Wastewater

    THE TERM, “decentralized waste-water management,” refers to the process of treating and discharging treated wastewater in the local vicinity where it is generated. Decentralized systems typically use the soil as the final receptor of the treated wastewater instead of discharging to surface waters, which are generally the receptors of treated wastewater from larger centralized treatment plants. ...


  • Environmental infrastructure and socio-economic indicators in San Pedro Sula, Honduras

    Access to water and sanitation was evaluated with respect to socio-economic factors for San Pedro Sula, Honduras (SPS), a medium-sized industrial city. A multidisciplinary analysis was conducted using socio-economic distribution and infrastructure assessments to determine the nature and extent of any existing inequalities. Although piped water access was nearly universal, socio-economic status ...

  • 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 ...

  • Soil and groundwater assessment, North-West England

    Project Remediation Strategies were retained to undertake contamination delineation and assessment work at a logistics depot following an accidental release of a large volume of diesel.  An overnight failure in a joint on a pressurised fuel pipeline had resulted in a loss of 15,000 litres of red diesel. Initial response works identified a small proportion of the diesel had ...

  • Rethinking Big Water - Is It Time For A New Approach To Municipal Water Infrastructure?

    Las Vegas has long served as a stereotype of human excess: gambling, drinking, sex, all-you-can-eat buffets. But the latest chapter is playing out away from the Strip, in the part of the valley where two decades of booming development have swelled the population to 2 million residents who rely on a dwindling water supply. Ninety percent of the southwestern U.S. city’s drinking water comes ...

  • London Region Develops “Intelligent” Infrastructure for the HELP Clean Water Project

    For progressive municipalities, forward thinking about infrastructure can pay huge dividends down the road. In London region, the HELP Clean Water Funding Initiative (Huron-Elgin-London Project Clean Water) was started to create sustainable water supply for a major population hub in Ontario. The project has been 11 years in the making, with ...

  • Climate change adaptation in rural India: A green infrastructure approach

    Water is a scarce resource in India, especially in the state of Maharashtra, where most rainfall is limited to the monsoon season from June through September. The Government of India has long promoted a Participatory Watershed Development (PWD) approach to deal with this scarcity, focusing on technical and social interventions to ...

  • Landfill groundwater monitoring network design and construction quality assurance (CQA)

    The site is an active landfill site situated in the north east of England.  The company managing the site was unhappy with the groundwater monitoring infrastructure around the site margins. ESI Ltd was commissioned to advise on locating and designing ten groundwater monitoring wells.  Following agreement with the Environment Agency, we also provided independent construction quality ...

  • No Negative Impacts to Underground Infrastructure and Communication Lines using RegenOx at Site with High Concentrations of TRPH

    Kennedy Space Center, FL The Launch Equipment Shop (LES) at Kennedy Space Center, part of NASA's famed Vehicle Assembly Budding complex, has conducted highly specialized manufacturing fabrication, and assembly work for the space program since the early 1960s. Leaks from an underground storage tank (UST) led to notable fuel oil contamination of soil and groundwater, including a layer of ...

  • Optimal planning of water and wastewater management infrastructure for insular areas: the role of water reuse

    The present article estimates the financial benefits of water reuse by calculating the annualised total cost of water and wastewater management, using mixed integer linear programming. The programme is using as input: geographical data, population distribution, and groundwater availability (for a given area), to calculate the qualitative localised water needs, and to estimate the sizes and ...

  • Groundwater Rise Problem and Risk Evaluation in Major Cities of Arid Lands – Jedddah Case in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

    Arid lands are in the need of additional water supply but water transportation from outside of the natural hydrological cycle causes the groundwater to rise within the urban areas. Additional water supply from surrounding areas or through the desalination plants provides comfort in domestic activities but after the usage, its disposition is necessary in an efficient manner. Unfortunately, arid ...
