  • Runoff research promotes healthier aquifers

    Where rain falls can influence the quality of surface water before it enters underground reservoirs, some of which provide water that eventually comes out of our taps. That's one conclusion from a collaborative study by the Agricultural Research Service (ARS) and the University of Arizona (UA). The ARS and UA scientists are investigating how urban landscapes influence storm runoff and water ...

  • Technical Announcement: Bacteria No Match for Deep Floridan Aquifer

    A first of its kind study has the potential to impact future regulatory decisions on disinfection practices for water prior to its recharge or following its storage in the Floridan Aquifer. The U.S Geological Survey report found that coliform bacteria die off faster in a regional aquifer system ...

  • High resolution multi-level monitoring for bedrock aquifers

    This presentation describes a comprehensive approach for determining the nature, extent, transport and fate of contaminants at industrial sites on fractured rock, with emphasis on sedimentary rock, referred to as the Discrete Fracture Network (DFN) approach. Development of this DFN approach began at a sandstone site in California in 1997, where the initial version of a method for measuring ...

  • West Bank aquifer endangered by untreated sewage

    An important water source for both Israelis and Palestinians is in danger due to pollution from sewage, a new Israeli governmental report stated. About 2.8 million people, including Palestinians and Israeli settlers, live in the West Bank, but 'due to conflicts and economic problems, the effluents of more than two million people do not go through efficient pollution treatment', the report by the ...

  • Idaho aquifer decline could hinder radioactive monitoring

    A continued drop in underground water levels could make it more difficult to monitor the movement of radioactive contamination in an aquifer below an eastern Idaho nuclear facility, scientists say. Researchers with the U.S. Geological Survey in a 36-page report released Monday said the Eastern Snake River Plain Aquifer level has dropped below ...

  • California authorizes oilfield dumping into protected aquifers

    Regulators in California, the country's third-largest oil-producing state, have authorized oil companies to inject production fluids and waste into what are now federally protected aquifers more than 2,500 times, risking contamination of underground water supplies that could be used for drinking water or irrigation, state records show. While some of the permits go back decades, an Associated ...

  • U.S. EPA Seeks Public Comment on Mahomet Aquifer Designation

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency today proposed approval of a petition to designate a portion of the Mahomet Aquifer system in east-central Illinois as a sole source aquifer. EPA’s public comment period on the proposed designation begins March 13 and closes June 12, 2014. The Safe Drinking Water Act gives EPA authority to designate an aquifer as a sole or principal source of ...

  • Study: Two major U.S. aquifers contaminated by natural uranium

    Nearly 2 million people throughout the Great Plains and California live above aquifer sites contaminated with natural uranium that is mobilized by human-contributed nitrate, according to a study from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Data from roughly 275,000 groundwater samples in the High Plains and Central Valley aquifers show that many Americans live less than two-thirds of a mile from ...

  • UNESCO publishes first world map of underground transboundary aquifers

    UNESCO is publishing the first-ever world map of shared aquifers to coincide with the submission to the General Assembly of the United Nations on 27 October of a draft Convention on Transboundary Aquifers. Almost 96% of the planet’s freshwater resources are to be found in underground aquifers, most of which straddle national boundaries. Despite its strategic importance, no global inventory of ...

  • Developing Bioaugmentation Cultures for Chloroethene Remediation in Low pH Aquifers

    One of the major limitations for bioremediation of chlorinated ethenes in aquifers with a pH of approximately 6 and below is the perceived need to adjust the pH to the circumneutral range. This is based on numerous studies with Dehalococcoides and mixed cultures containing Dehalococcoides that indicate a steep reduction or cessation in cDCE and VC reduction to ethene at pH levels below 6. ...
