  • Detailed hydraulic assessment using a high-resolution piezocone coupled to the GeoVIS

    Department of Defense (DoD) ground water assessment and remediation projects require cost effective methods for determining the direction and rate of ground water and contaminant flow. Monitoring wells have typically been used to estimate these parameters. However, detailed three-dimensional ground water and contaminant flow pathways cannot typically be delineated using monitoring well data. ...

  • Improving the Cost-Effectiveness of Hazardous Waste Site Characterization and Monitoring

    Executive Summary U.S. EPA’s Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response is promoting more effective strategies for characterizing and monitoring hazardous waste sites. In particular, the wide-spread adoption of a new paradigm which uses an integrated triad of systematic planning, dynamic work plans, and on-site analysis for data collection and technical decision-making at hazardous waste sites ...

  • Management of Hazardous Wastes

    ' Management of hazardous waste is a growing concern in many countries. The long-term impacts and costs of improper disposal can be very high and the emphasis must be on prevention. A comprehensive management system should include (i) policies, institutions and effective regulations and (ii) adequate and acceptable disposal facilities (either public or private). This note outlines the key ...

  • Non-Hazardous Landfill - Case Study

    Municipal solid waste landfill is site for domestic day-to-day waste disposal. Its also known as tip, rubbish dump, dumping ground, etc. Material stored at solid waste landfill is isolated from the environment by sealing layer which can be HDPE or LDPE or even PVC geomembrane. If such geomembrane leaks, the contaminant from landfill is spreading in direction of the groundwater flow. ...

  • Bioremediation/natural attenuation continues after ISCO treatment

    Scientists and engineers from the private sector and EPA are evaluating the potential for in situ bioremediation and/or natural attenuation to successfully treat residual soil and ground-water contamination after source-area in situ chemical oxidation (ISCO) treatment. The studies were prompted by concerns that the two treatment technologies may be incompatible due to detrimental impacts on ...

  • Mathematical modeling of heavy metals contamination from MSW landfill site in Khon Kaen, Thailand

    Kham Bon landfill site is one of many municipality waste disposal sites in Thailand which are in an unsanitary condition. The site has been receiving municipality wastes without separating hazardous waste since 1968. Heavy metals including, Pb, Cr and Cd are found in soil and groundwater around the site, posing a health risk to people living nearby. In this research, contamination transport ...
