  • Groundwater Remediation

    Groundwater remediation or clean-up is required when concentrations of contaminants exceed or are expected to exceed predetermined levels for the type of resource that is impacted (Grossman et.al., 2008). For example, lead levels in drinking water should not exceed the EPA action level of 0.015 mg/L. What caused the high levels of lead? How can the lead be removed from the aquifer? (Grossman ...

  • Risk 101 & Remediation Design

    Risk Assessment is the basis for almost all of our designs. Perceived risk is the basis for the rest of the designs. A good remediation design must incorporate the concentration goals for that site and the designer must know how those goals were set. In order to know how those goals were set, we all must have a basic understanding of Risk Assessment. Not just the numbers, but the methodology that ...

  • Reducing the Economic Friction of Regulation

    Last month, we looked at two distinctly different bioenergy business models that are merging. Energy profit centers and waste cost-recovery facilities are learning the benefits of each other's business model. The resulting projects generate maximum revenue with lower production costs. The same kind of business model duality occurs in biomass energy regulation. There are more than two kinds of ...

  • Arsenic in private drinking water wells: an assessment of jurisdictional regulations and guidelines for risk remediation in North America

    Arsenic is a known carcinogen found globally in groundwater supplies due to natural geological occurrence. Levels exceeding the internationally recognized safe drinking water standard of 10 μg/L have been found in private drinking water supplies in many parts of Canada and the United States. Emerging epidemiological evidence confirms groundwater arsenic to be a significant health concern, ...

  • Stevens Systems Enhances Ground Water Remediation Effectiveness

    The Stevens Hydra Probe is now being used to monitor the progress of a new groundwater pollution clean up method called phytoremediation. Phytoremediation is the method by which trees are used to pull contamination out of groundwater. Remediation of contaminated aquifers can take many years to complete. The need for clean, healthy rivers, lakes and streams has stimulated research to develop ...

  • Site Remediation Public Notifications – Round 2
