  • Water resource management with a combination of underground dam/qanat and site selection of suitable sites using GIS

    Subsurface dams and aqueducts have been used for many years as important sources of water in different parts of the world. Nowadays, little attention is paid to aqueducts. On the other hand, there is a great tendency for constructing and using subsurface dams in many arid and semiarid parts of the world such as Iran. A combination of these two structures was established in ancient Iran including ...

  • Best soil management practices for Washington building sites

    The Washington Organic Recycling Council (WORC), which started the Soils for Salmon project in 1999, launched a new website, and a “Building Soil” outreach campaign to change standard building practices. The mission is to help builders and developers preserve and restore native soil on building sites, using compost. These soil “best management practices” (BMPs) will soon be required by local ...

  • Green remediation best management practices: site investigation

    Overview The need for site investigation is common to cleanups under any regulatory program. An investigation can occur at all points in the cleanup process, from initial site assessment through waste site closeout. A site investigation generally is undertaken to: Confirm the presence or absence of specific contaminants Delineate the nature and extent of environmental contamination ...

  • Integrated Water Management in Senegal

    This past June the Wetlands International Supervisory Council met for the first time in Senegal where they made field visits to a number of sites, including the Ndiael Special Avifauna Reserve. The Ndiael area, a complex wetland of great value in the Sahelian zone of Africa, has over the last decades been degraded due to the diversion of water supplies upstream. The reduced water flows and ...

  • Spolchemie site remediation and NanoRem field site application

    Site Remediation The Spolchemie site was chosen as one of the NanoRem case study sites, to test two types of nanoparticles (NPs) (zerovalent iron - nZVI and iron oxide NPs) for in situ remediation of BTEX (Benzene, Toluene, Ethylbenzene, and Xylenes) contamination. Nanoremediation was seen as an opportunity to enhance the in situ biodegradation of the BTEX contaminants and to reduce the ...

  • Improving Automation At Remote Sites

    Because water treatment usually involves a large geographic area, automation systems for water/wastewater applications often require remote sites. In industrial water treatment, water is typically treated immediately adjacent to its points of use, and these locations may be across large industrial complexes. In municipal applications, water often is pumped long distances across extensive areas ...
