  • Rotational Penetrometer Surface Testina Report

    Procedures used to install, compact and/or level prior to testing: A 6-inch layer of base course (#2 road base) was installed and compacted. One pound of Hydrogrow polymer-fertilizer mixture was sprinkled onto the base course and spread evenly by hand. The 1-inch Grasspave2 ring and grid structure was then placed over the base course and Hydrogrow mix, ring side up. The Grasspave2 was cut to fit ...

  • Dispersive Behavior of Nonswelling Clays

    This paper examines the possible factors that contribute to the dispersive behavior of compacted nonswelling clays and proposes the use of a synthetic organic stabilizing agent to reduce the dispersive tendency of such soils. Results of chemical tests on saturation extracts of the clays tested failed to identify them as piping susceptible. However, pinhole tests on statically compacted specimens ...

  • Toxicological and Environmental Safety Data - Case Study

    Introduction AGRAGEL is a cross-linked copolymer of acrylic acid and acrylamide partially neutralized as potassium/ ammonium salt. The polymer is in its dry form a granulate and forms a gel-like material upon addition of water or aqueous solutions. Due to the cross-linking it is insoluble in water. Uptake of water is facilitated mainly by the negative carboxylic groups of the polymer and ...

No one knows how long hazardous substances had been leaking into the ground but the operations date back to the 1940's.  Up until closure of the facility in 1991, chlorinated solvents, aromatic solvents, and flammable liquids had ...

  • Dredging at weldon spring super fund project Morrison Knudsen - St. Charles, Missouri, USA

    Remote controlled Dredging proved to be the best method of removing radioactive sludge from settling ponds of a former uranium processing plant near St. Charles, Missouri. Dredging keeps the material wet and out of contact with the atmosphere throughout the removal and treatment process, eliminating the danger of contaminates becoming airborne. The Weldon Spring Site Remedial Action Project ...

  • Common Treatment Technologies for Nonhalogenated VOCs

    Soil vapor extraction (SVE), thermal desorption, and incineration are the presumptive remedies for Superfund sites with nonhalogenated VOC-contaminated soil. Because a presumptive remedy is a technology that EPA believes, based upon its past experience, generally will be the most appropriate remedy for a specified type of site, the presumptive remedy approach will accelerate site-specific ...

  • Down with road dust

    There are more than 3.9 million miles of roadway in the United States, according to the Federal Highway Administration, and, depending on the area of the country you're in, as much as 70% of that road mileage is unpaved. The 1997 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) National Air Quality and Emissions Trends Report states that those unpaved roads--which can cover a wide range of ...
