  • Maximazing Operational Capacity for Outfall Sewers through Innovative Design

    ABSTRACTThe City of Lincoln, Nebraska has undertaken a strategy to accelerate development of infrastructure systems for critical areas of the community, with the goal of nearly doubling the development rate for those areas. The Little Salt Creek drainage basin is a growing service area which includes over 3,000 acres of developed land and ultimately 5,300 acres in all. The majority of the ...

  • Studies on Microbial Heavy Metal Retention from Uranium Mine Drainage Water with Special Emphasis on Rare Earth Elements

    Microbial heavy metal retention was studied using seepage water sampled from a former uranium mining site in Eastern Thuringia, Germany. The seepage water has a low pH and contains high concentrations of metals, including uranium, rare earth elements (REE), and other heavy metals. Microbial influence on sorption and/or active uptake of heavy metals was studied using REE patterns. Incubation of ...

  • Acid mine drainage in semi-arid regions: the extent of the problem in the waters of reservoirs in the Iberian Pyrite Belt (SW Spain)

    There are many reservoirs in the Iberian Pyrite Belt (IPB), SW Spain, which receive contributions from watercourses affected by acid mine drainage processes, characterised by low pH values and high concentrations of heavy metals and sulphates. When they reach the reservoirs, the waters increase its pH, which will cause most of the metal load carried by the mining channel to precipitate into the ...

  • Sewer mining to supplement blackwater flow in a commercial high-rise Australia-Sydney case study

    Project Background or Rationale Australia’s warm climate and habitual droughts have resulted in innovative water conservation practices in commercial developments, such as 1 Bligh Street in Sydney. Commissioned in May 2011, the highly acclaimed 29 story office tower overlooking the Sydney Harbor captures nearly 100 percent of its wastewater and reuses it in the building. By recycling ...

  • Release of metals and arsenic from various mine tailings by Eriophorum angustifolium

    Abstract  Previous investigations have found that plants grown on sulphide-rich mine tailings have phytostabilising effects on acid mine drainage (AMD) by decreasing the pH and preventing the release of metals. The possibility of similar effects on tailings containing other minerals was investigated here. The aim was to examine the effects of Eriophorum angustifolium on four water-covered mine ...
