  • Chloride transport and related processes at a municipal snow storage and disposal site

    The practice of used snow disposal has evolved from indiscriminate snow dumping to storage and meltwater management at engineered snow disposal sites. The Town of Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada, constructed such a snow disposal site in 2003. Environment Canada and the Town of Richmond Hill formed a partnership to investigate the operation of the Richmond Hill Snow Storage Facility (RHSSF) with ...

  • Reclaimed Water Aquifer Storage and Recovery: Potential Changes in Water Quality

    Aquifer storage recovery (ASR) operations recharge and recover water through the same well or wells, creating a “bubble” of stored water that typically mixes minimally with ambient groundwater once the storage zone has been developed. Because ASR recharge water does not flow through a vadose zone and is not drawn through an aquifer to a distant point of withdrawal, changes in water quality that ...

  • Saudi Arabia’s National Water Company Increases Water Storage

    In 2012 the National Water Company (NWC) of Saudi Arabia undertook the enormous project of developing 43 wells and 46 water purification stations in 27 separate locations to provide sustainable potable water systems near Riyadh. To accomplish this task in a short six-month timeframe, contractors around the world were brought in to provide the necessary pieces of infrastructure required to build ...

  • 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 ...

  • Aquifer storage recovery efficiency for saline groundwater regions as influenced by buffer storage volume and storage time

    Abstract:                             Field experiments were carried out in a cavity type of Aquifer Storage Recovery well installed in an aquifer having highly saline native groundwater (EC = 28.4 dS m-1). Good quality canal water (EC = 0.46 dS m-1) ...

  • Bacteriological assessment of aquifer storage and recovery (ASR) water in southwest coastal Bangladesh

    Safe drinking water is scarce in southwest coastal Bangladesh. Harvested rainwater and rain-fed pond water are the main sources of drinking water for people living in this area. Both government and non-government organizations are promoting aquifer storage and recovery (ASR) schemes to provide safe drinking water for this population. This study assessed the bacteriological quality of both ...

  • Predicting the site water balance of a phytocapped landfill using HYDRUS 1D

    An alternative landfill capping technique called 'Phytocapping' was trialled in Rockhampton, Australia. In this technique, trees were used as 'bio-pumps' and 'rainfall interceptors' and soil cover as the 'storage' of water. The performance of this system was measured based on its ability to minimise water percolation into waste. The percolation rate was modelled using HYDRUS 1D for two main ...

  • How Seismic Use Group Classification affects your Water Storage Tank

    When purchasing a bolted steel tank or a welded steel water storage tank, one of the key criteria determining the design parameters of the tank is the Seismic Use Group (SUG) classification. The term Seismic Use Group is essentially the same as the terms Occupancy Category and Risk Category used by the International Building Code (IBC) and the ...

  • Case study - Superfund site, water pump & treat system

    Anguil Aqua Systems LLC was contracted as part of a team of companies to implement a ground water pump and treat system intended to remove trichloroethylene (TCE) from a local aquifer designated as a Superfund Site by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Though the site is nestled between the buildings and roadways of an existing and operating industrial facility, the overall extent of the ...

  • On-Site Chlorine Generation Feasibility Study

     ABSTRACT Gaseous chlorine has been effectively used for disinfection in drinking water and wastewater treatment for decades. While various regulatory programs have placed numerous restrictions on the uses of this chemical due to its hazardous nature, recent focus on the possibility of a terrorist attack at a drinking water or wastewater facility, has underscored the potential hazard ...

  • Effects of aquifer thermal energy storage on groundwater quality and the consequences for drinking water production: a case study from the Netherlands

    We used data from an aquifer thermal energy storage (ATES) system located 570 m from a public water supply well field in the south of the Netherlands to investigate the relation between production of renewable energy with an ATES system and the production of drinking water. The data show that the groundwater circulation by the ATES system can impact chemical groundwater quality by introducing ...

  • E.On on-site sewage treatment plant (Ratcliffe-on-Soar)

    Located in Nottinghamshire, E.On's Ratcliffe-on-Soar facility is one of the most efficient coal fired power stations in the UK. With a total generation capacity of 2,000MW it produces enough electricity to meet the needs of approximately 2 million people. In March 2008 WPL were contacted by E.On to enquire about a replacement sewage treatment solution to serve personnel located at the site's ...
