  • What are the main indicators of water quality?

    “Water is the driving force of all nature;” so said Leonardo da Vinci. The survival of our planet depends on the availability of water and the condition that it is in. It is therefore vital to make sure that it is able to provide a hospitable environment for those that live in it, and is free from harmful levels of substances for those that drink it. Not ...

  • Antibiotic resistance genes a growing problem in chinese estuaries

    Large amounts of antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) have been found throughout estuaries in coastal China, and scientists say they’re causing potentially dangerous changes to local bacteria. When bacteria mutate and become resistant to antibiotics, it endangers human health and life. If antibiotics can’t work properly, infectious diseases will increase, and health-care costs will ...

  • New Advancements for In Situ Treatment Using Electrical Resistance Heating

    Abstract Electrical resistance heating (ERH) is proving to be an effective technology to rapidly heat the subsurface and, in doing so, removing volatile organic compounds. Practitioners of this technology have observed that other processes (biodegradation, abiotic degradation, hydrolysis, and possibly others) occur to break down the chemicals of concern, and remediation is not solely ...

  • In situ Remediation of 1,4-Dioxane using Electrical Resistance Heating

    An increasing number of states are establishing enforceable 1,4-dioxane cleanup goals due to recent improvements in analytical detection methods and existing carcinogenic risk information for 1,4-dioxane. Historically, 1,4-dioxane was used as a stabilizer for chlorinated solvents, primarily 1,1,1-trichloroethane. In addition, 1,4-dioxane has been used in a broad range of products including but ...

  • Enhanced In Situ Biodegradation of PCE Following Electrical Resistance Heating at a DNAPL Source Area

    Area of Concern (AOC) 607 is a former dry cleaner at the Charleston Naval Complex (CNC). During the RCRA field investigation (RFI), soil and groundwater were found to be impacted by tetrachloroethene (PCE). PCE concentrations in groundwater as high as 42,000 mircograms per liter (μg/L) were detected. During a nine-month period, an area defined by monitoring wells with PCE concentrations ...
