Groundwater Remediation for Environmental Safety
For farmers, landowners, businesses and local governments, groundwater is an essential resource. If local groundwater is not properly protected and managed, contamination can quickly become a common environmental problem that will reduce or eliminate the ability to use the resource and require remediation to restore its value.
Groundwater remediation is the process of managing and reversing the effects of contamination in the underground water supply that may be caused by industrial, agricultural, or consumer activities. Contaminants may include oil, chemical solvents, fertilizers, heavy metals, and other potentially dangerous substances. Often released into the environment by runoff or discharge into streams, lakes, rivers and oceans, the contaminants can find their way into the food chain and cause long-term contamination of wildlife, farm products, and ecosystems. If ingested, many of these pollutants can cause illness or be fatal to human health.
Although groundwater quality is highly influenced by geologic processes, human activity is a strong factor as well. Proper storage and disposal of potential pollutants, proper land use management, runoff management, and protection measures around wellheads and sinkholes can help protect water quality and prevent contamination.
Because groundwater contamination can become both an expensive and safety issue, it can be considered a legal risk within many industries. Therefore, it is important to utilize advanced remediation technologies to properly manage and solve contamination problems wherever they exist.
When it comes to achieving basic groundwater remediation, EON Products understands the importance of high quality and easy-to-use tools. Our remediation products are designed to effectively remove dangerous materials, including hydrocarbon contaminants, from groundwater, while minimizing cost and wastewater disposal to ensure project success for the end user. Our products include passive and active groundwater remediation skimmers, spill kits and absorbent materials, DNAPL and LNAPL recovery systems and sparging systems.
With our passive skimmers, absorbent socks and pneumatically-operated pumping systems, the user can collect and eliminate light non-aqueous phase liquids (LNAPLs), such as hydrocarbon containments, resulting from tank leaks, dry cleaners, spills, or other discharge events.
