  • Landfill site improvement condition for PPC permit

    The installation is a landfill site licensed for the disposal of inert waste. It lies in a potentially sensitive location on the flood plain of the River Great Ouse, near Milton Keynes and it is therefore important to the client to ensure good environmental monitoring is undertaken. The site is divided into two sections, (the north western area and the south eastern area) by the River Great Ouse, ...

  • Groundwater management in China

    After introducing groundwater development and other issues, the paper analyzes China's groundwater management system and its problems, and provides suggestions for improving the system. Increasing water demand since the 1970s has resulted in severe groundwater overdraft, water level decline and water quality degradation in China, but the current management system is not able to provide an ...

  • 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 ...

  • In situ bioremediation of pesticides in soil and groundwater

    This article provides a summary of the Adventus Group’s experience with treatment of organochlorine pesticides (OCPs) in soil and groundwater using DARAMEND® and EHC® bioremediation amendments. The firm has offered DARAMEND for treatment of recalcitrant compounds in soil for more than ten years in both ex situ and in-situ applications. Since OCPs bind strongly to the soil matrix, ...


  • New Spanish regulation on groundwater protection

    On 22 October it was issued Royal Decree 1514/2009 regulating the protection of groundwater against pollution and deterioration. The legal framework of this Royal Decree is formed by Directive 2000/60/EC (WFD) in particular Article 17, and Directive 20006/118/EC. The main objectives are to prevent or limit groundwater pollution and to establish criteria and procedures to assess their chemical ...

  • KPDES Permit Compliance: Metals in Wastewater Effluent at Fort Knox

    ABSTRACT Prior to constructing a new FOTW, Fort Knox had a history of exceeding KPDES effluent limitations for ammonia and BOD. The new 6 MGD FOTW solved the problem, but metals exceedances became an issue. The exceedances could be linked to several factors: low water-quality based effluent limitations (WQBELs) on the new KPDES permit, high background concentrations of some metals, and high ...

  • Evaluating groundwater sustainability for fractured crystalline bedrock

    Water sustainability is an important concern for communities that rely on groundwater in fractured rock; yet the complexity of the fracture system and the unknown rate of recharge make quantifying groundwater availability difficult, if not impossible, using conventional water balance calculations. This study provides a new approach for estimating groundwater sustainability in fractured rock that ...

  • Electrolytic denitrification with an ion-exchange membrane in groundwater

    Nitrate contamination of groundwater is an important issue in rural areas. In this study, an electrolytic method for the denitrification of groundwater was investigated in a laboratory reactor. We used an ion-exchange membrane, employing a titanium oxide anode and five kinds of cathode for the investigation. The nitrate removal efficiencies with Cu, Pb, Ti/Ir/Ru, Ti/Ir/Ta, and Zn cathodes were ...

  • Effect of soil-use on deep groundwater quality in Southern Chile

    This study evaluated the effects of farming activities on the quality of deep well water in Southern Chile. In this area, the use of fertilisers is becoming more widespread and the accumulation and poor management of cattle slurry and silage sub-products increases the risk of contamination. The study was carried out in the province of Osorno, where rainfall occurs all year round (maximum in ...

  • Ex Situ Biological Treatment for Groundwater, Surface Water, and Leachate

    The main advantage of ex situ treatment is that it generally requires shorter time periods, and there is more certainty about the uniformity of treatment because of the ability to monitor and continuously mix the groundwater. However, ex situ treatment requires pumping of groundwater, leading to increased costs and engineering for equipment, possible permitting, and material handling. ...
