  • Plant Profile - Warrenton Wastewater Treatment Plant Sequential Batch Reactor

    The Warrenton (Ore.) Wastewater Treatment Plant is brand new. In fact, it initiated full operation Jan. 2, although the plant has been utilized since June 28, 2006. The sequencing batch reactor (SBR) plant was constructed on top of an existing facultative sewer lagoon site. The site conditions prohibited deep excavations, so the three basins for the SBRs are shallow, at only 12.5 ft (3.8 m), with ...

  • Fold geometry model of Coyote hills segment of Puente hills blind-thrust system applied to interpretation of long-term water level data

    Recent work by others along the Coyote Hills segment of the Puente Hills blind-thrust system has imaged the near-surface structural features generated by activity of that intrabasin fault. Published shallow seismic profiles near the south flank of the Coyote Hills indicate the blindthrust system is expressed by south-facing folding of Quaternary terrestrial sediments underlying the hills. ...

  • High-Resolution Site Characterization with Multilevel Systems

    Within the last few years, the U.S. EPA added a new focus area on high-resolution site characterization (HRSC) to their Contaminated Site Clean-Up Information (CLU-IN) website. The U.S. EPA’s definition of HRSC is: “High-resolution site characterization (HRSC) strategies and techniques use scale-appropriate ...

  • Application of high-resolution geophysical methods in submarine pipeline inspection

    High-resolution marine geophysical equipment employed includes single beam echo sounder (SBES), multi-beam echo sounder (MBES), sub-bottom profiler (SBP) and side scan sonar (SSS). By employing SBES, the reflection curve in shallow water reveals the real condition of pipeline; while in deep water, the reflection or diffraction curve can't reveal the real condition. Compared with SBES, MBES is ...

  • Mapping sediment thickness case study

    Polk County, Florida Bathymetric and sub-bottom surveys were conducted within a clay settling pond at a Phosphate mine in Central Florida. Prior to the geophysical survey, a depression or slump had formed along the northern dam of the pond. The purpose of the study was to map various sediment layers within the pond to help determine if the depressions or slumps were related to sinkhole ...

  • Soil and groundwater assessment, North-West England

    Project Remediation Strategies were retained to undertake contamination delineation and assessment work at a logistics depot following an accidental release of a large volume of diesel.  An overnight failure in a joint on a pressurised fuel pipeline had resulted in a loss of 15,000 litres of red diesel. Initial response works identified a small proportion of the diesel had ...

  • Hydrogeologic Investigation of VOC Contamination in Bedrock Using Mass Flux Analysis – A Case History

    Courtesy of US EPA and NGWA proceedings of the 2004 U.S. EPA/NGWA Fractured Rock Conference: State of the Science and Measuring Success in Remediation, September 13-15, 2004, Portland, Maine AbstractA fractured bedrock system was investigated using a combination of hydrogeologic methods to minimize the number and depth of bedrock wells installed during the investigation. These ...

  • World War II Memorial, DC - Case Study

    In 2003, AdEdge Water Technologies began working closely with EarthTech, the assigned engineering firm responsible for specifying and selecting the various water treatment systems serving the new National World War II Monument in Washington, DC. Stormwater and groundwater control and treatment are essential aspects of this project given the location of the site on the Mall adjacent to the ...

  • Case study - Gas plant groundwater remediation

    One-pass trenching method used for a gas plant groundwater remediation project Not many environmental engineers have heard of one-pass trenching and even fewer have actually applied this cutting-edge technology to environmental control and clean-up. However, a growing number of companies are starting to use this technology, resulting in decreased cost of installation and increased system ...

  • ACO KerbDrain helps meet the demanding performance specifications at Hindhead Tunnel, Surrey

    Constructing a road tunnel under the sensitive environment of the Devil's Punchbowl in Surrey has been a major engineering achievement. It has required every element of the project to meet not only the demanding highway performance specifications but also the absolute need to protect and preserve a unique ecological area. The tunnel's carriageway drainage system is no exception. The improvement ...

  • Innovation risk slows offshore wind foundation development

    As offshore wind technology develops ever more gigantic machines further from shore into deeper waters, it is common wisdom that new foundation technologies are needed. But are they? Monopile, and some jacket foundations, still dominate the offshore wind market in commercial operation. Prototype floating foundations are performing well in demo or pilot projects, but scaling up is only ...

  • Rainfall, Runoff and Infiltration Re-visited

    Introduction The flow variations in sewers have been modelled for several years with a comparatively high degree of accuracy as far as the diurnal variations and responses to climatic conditions are concerned. However, until comparatively recently the variations in flow due to fluctuations in groundwater levels, soil storage capacity and wetness of the catchment have only been modelled in basic ...

  • EPA Technology News & Trends - Tacoma “Well 12A” Superfund Site

    The U.S. EPA Region 10 office uses an adaptive site management approach that relies on high-resolution site characterization (HRSC) techniques for strategic sampling at the Well 12A project area. This approximate one-square-mile project area is one of three at the 2.5-square-mile Commencement Bay-South Tacoma Channel Superfund site in Tacoma, Washington. The vicinity of Well 12A, one of 13 wells ...

  • Developing optimum solutions to flooding

    Developing optimum solutions to flooding With a very long period of wet weather in the summer overlaid by intense rainfall, 2007 was the wettest summer in the UK on record. This unusual weather pattern resulted in very high localised runoff, with three events in England exceeding the 1 in 100 year return period over that time – some of the worst flooding that has ever occurred in ...
