  • Pumping water to decontaminate a karstic spring

    After being struck by lightning, an underground military fuel tank lost all its contents. After a few hours, petrol mixed with foam began to flow out of the nearby Forame spring, situated about 400 m away and at a height of 7.0 m lower than the bottom of the tank. The spring feeds the Giavera stream which, after about 1000 m enters the upper Veneto plain, flowing into the irrigation network. ...

  • Decontamination of soil contaminated with petroleum grease

    Contamination modifies the engineering properties of soil, thereby restricting its further use either as a construction material or as a supporting medium. Due to the scarcity of land, it becomes imperative to reuse the land for infrastructure developmental activities. Out of numerous soil contaminants, automobile grease is one of the most prominent. Considering the cumulative impact of ...
