  • Subsurface transport of Phosphorus in Riparian floodplains: Influence of preferential flow paths

    Received for publication April 29, 2008. For phosphorus (P) transport from upland areas to surface water systems, the primary transport mechanism is typically considered to be surface runoff with subsurface transport assumed negligible. However, certain local conditions can lead to an environment where subsurface transport may be significant. The objective of this research was to determine the ...

  • Texas Earthen Dam Seepage Flow Path Study - Case Study

    Willowstick characterizes seepage flow paths through through the dam Background An engineering company was set to build a new outlet structure for a reservoir. They had been monitoring the dam for seepage and wanted to gain a better understanding of where seepage was occurring. Of significant importance to the client was the desire to characterize any preferential seepage ...

  • Unique applications of MMR to track preferential groundwater flow paths in dams, mines, environmental sites, and leach fields

    Groundwater systems have been notoriously di!cult to map with high degrees of accuracy. As a result, not only have traditional geophysical methods proven inaccurate for groundwater characterization work, but they are often costly in terms of time, money, and environmental trauma. "is paper describes a unique application of magnetometric resistivity or MMR (Edwards and Nabighian, 1991) for ...

  • Soil moisture and metolachlor volatilization observations over three years

    Received for publication June 18, 2008. A 3-yr study was conducted to focus on the impact of surface soil water content on metolachlor (2-chloro-N-(2-ethyl-6-methylphenyl)-N-(2-methoxy-1-methylethyl) acetamide) volatilization from a field with different surface soil water regimes created by subsurface water flow paths. Metolachlor vapor fluxes were measured at two locations within the field where ...

  • Jackson storm cells pilot case study

    Performance History and Discussion The City of Jackson (COJ) and Jackson Water Partnership (JWP) selected In-Pipe Technology (IPT) in March 2010 to team with them and implement a beta test project. The principal purpose being to evaluate the microbial technology and benefits of the IPT professional services program for the Savanna WWTP Storm Cells. In-Pipe Professional services ...

  • Natural Attenuation in Soils

    Introduction Surface and subsurface soils have different characteristics in natural attenuation. Mobile contaminants in subsurface soils diffuse into soil vapor and aqueous phase and thus are relatively easily subject to natural subsurface processes that can attenuate these contaminants. Most high-molecular-weight (persistent) organic and many inorganic contaminants will be immobilized in the ...

  • Homeland Security for Drinking Water Supplies

    As it has done with other jurisdictions, Congress has recently passed legislation aimed at protecting our nation's drinking water resources. Historically, water supply protection has been a high priority, including reservoir protection, continuous monitoring, and secure and redundant facilities to ensure an uninterrupted supply of drinking water. The Clean Water Act (1972), requires pollution ...

  • Natural Attenuation

    Introduction: Natural subsurface processes such as dilution, volatilization, biodegradation, adsorption, and chemical reactions with subsurface materials are allowed to reduce contaminant concentrations to acceptable levels. Natural attenuation is not a 'technology' per se, and there is significant debate among technical experts about its use at hazardous waste sites. Consideration of this ...

  • Case study - Shopping center avoids litigation by resolving sewer odor problems

    Mazzei Injector Company, LLC is a recognized industry leader in gas to liquid mass transfer primarily from its proven 25 year experience with ozone applications. In addition, Mazzei has installed the same patented Venturi injector and mixing nozzle technology in many municipal and industrial wastewater systems in applications at lift stations, equalization tanks, aeration basins, activated sludge ...

  • Enhanced Bioremediation

    Introduction Enhanced bioremediation is a process in which indigenous or inoculated micro-organisms (e.g., fungi, bacteria, and other microbes) degrade (metabolize) organic contaminants found in soil and/or ground water, converting them to innocuous end products. Nutrients, oxygen, or other amendments may be used to enhance bioremediation and contaminant desorption from subsurface materials. ...

  • Home, Sweet Wastewater Building

    How can a wastewater treatment plant embedded into a neighborhood not use much landmass and be environmentally friendly and user-friendly all at the same time? One system aims to do all of the above. Why should a wastewater treatment plant always have to look like, well, a wastewater treatment plant?  A visual trip through project files of Aqueonics Inc., based in Greenville, SC, reveals photos ...

  • A Citizen`s Guide to Bioremediation

    What is bioremediation? Bioremediation is a treatment process that uses naturally occurring microorganisms (yeast, fungi, or bacteria) to break down, or degrade, hazardous substances into less toxic or nontoxic substances. Microorganisms, just like humans, eat and digest organic substances for nutrients and energy. In chemical terms, 'organic' compounds are those that contain carbon and hydrogen ...

  • The Use of Hydrogen Release Compound (HRC) for CAH Bioremediation.

    Hydrogen Release Compound (HRC™) is a simple, passive, low-cost and long-term option for the anaerobic bioremediation of chlorinated aliphatic hydrocarbons (CAHs) via a reductive dehalogenation pathway. Applications to other classes of chlorinated compounds that are anaerobically degradable by this mechanism are under investigation. HRC should be viewed as a tool for the enhancement of natural ...

  • Flood modeling and mitigation measures in an Urban Environment –Victoria, Australia - Case Study

    Abstract Accurate prediction of flood extents in urban catchments is extremely difficult without having a 1d/2d integrated modeling approach. The integrated flood modeling is becoming popular and a new benchmark for urban flood risk management studies. City of Glen Eira in Victoria, Australia is a developed metropolitan municipality. The council is responsible for the management ...
