  • Case study - Low-flow groundwater sampling on a nuclear site

    Nuclear licensed site use of low-flow groundwater sampling shows: Reduced time, reduced quantity of purge water – both thus reducing cost - and reduced risk of operator contact especially with potentially radioactive-contaminated purge water thanks to a self-contained enclosed system. One of the biggest headaches on site is the purge water and the expense of getting rid of it – after ...

  • Norfolk CC tackle groundwater contamination with low-flow

    Quick and easy access in deep wells Geotech low flow groundwater analysis equipment has enabled quick and easy access to samples at 2m intervals down a 28m screen in deep boreholes. Elizabeth Guilford of Norfolk County Council hired the low flow kit from Geotech and used it on a Norfolk CC landfill where leachate contamination of groundwater was suspected. Samples taken at 2m intervals ...

  • 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‚ÄČkm2, ...

  • Detection of vanA and vanB genes in vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE) from groundwater using multiplex PCR analysis

    A total of 22 groundwater samples were randomly collected from three rural communities in the Mafikeng area. Bile esculin agar was used for selective isolation of enterococci. Standard preliminary tests (Gram staining, oxidase test, catalase test) and confirmatory tests (Prolex™ Streptococcal Grouping Rapid Latex Agglutination test kit) were used to determine the identities of presumptive ...

  • Detection of alachlor and its sulfonic acid metabolite in water

    MATRIX: Groundwater, surface water and well water ANALYTES: Alachlor and its major soil metabolite, ethane sulfonic acid (ESA) LIMIT OF DETECTION: Alachlor: 5 ppt to 500 ppt (for 10 mL sample) 0.5 ppt to 50 ppt (for 100 mL sample) ESA: 30 ppt to 3 ppb (for 10 mL sample) 3 ppt to 300 ppt (for 100 mL sample) ...


  • Hired metals analyser ensures remediation success

    Cognition Land and Water Ltd, a UK based remediation specialist, has hired a portable XRF metals analyser to improve the speed of remediation work at a project in London’s Kentish Town. The project had a major impact on local residents so timescales were extremely tight but Cognition’s Charlie Jarvis says “It would not have been possible to meet the deadline without the use of ...

  • Vapor-Phase Biofilters Show Promise for Treating High VOC Emissions.

    Evaluating the Feasibility of Natural AttenuationUsing natural attenuation to remediate organic compounds in groundwater has gained popularity. In some cases, this process can reduce contaminant levels to below risk-based corrective action criteria or regulatory standards without implementing additional remedial action alternatives. However, it is often difficult to prove that natural ...
