  • Encouraging signals from the deep

    World attention is focused these days on the rescue efforts to free 33 trapped miners from a collapsed mine in Chile. It is a story of heroism, determination and technological achievement in the face of almost unimaginable obstacles. But despite the joy of the (hopefully) successful Chilean rescue efforts, there remains a larger global issue regarding the social, economic and environmental ...

  • Leaky wells, not fracking, taint water

    The drilling procedure called fracking didn't cause much-publicized cases of tainted groundwater in areas of Pennsylvania and Texas, a new study finds. Instead, it blames the contamination on problems in pipes and seals in natural gas wells. After looking at dozens of cases of suspected contamination, the scientists focused on eight hydraulically fractured wells in those states, where they ...

  • Water management planning approach deals with deep uncertainties

    More adaptive approaches to planning could help policymakers deal with deep uncertainties about the future of our planet. Researchers have developed a method for adaptive planning which they suggest could protect against failure when future predictions turn out to be inaccurate. They illustrate their approach using the case of water management in the Rhine Delta region of the Netherlands. It is ...

  • Scientists collect water near site of blown well

    Scientists from several universities are working to learn whether a gas well that blew wild last week off the Louisiana coast is polluting the Gulf of Mexico. Joseph Montoya, a biology professor with Georgia Tech, was performing tests aboard a vessel near the site of the 2010 BP oil spill when the Hercules 265 well blew Tuesday and caught fire. All 44 people on the rig were evacuated and not ...

  • Workers dig deep to fix massive New York City water leak

    Workers are planning to go under the river and through the rocks to replace part of a massive tunnel leaking New York City's drinking water. They're blasting through hundreds of feet of shale and building a shaft on each side of the Hudson River, about 60 miles north of New York City. Once they reach about 600 feet below the river next year, they will begin building a 2.5-mile bypass tunnel ...

  • New directions for protecting deep-sea biodiversity

    The deep sea is vulnerable to human impacts and environmental changes. A recent report provides an insight into deep-sea ecosystems and makes recommendations for future research and policies to protect deep-sea species and habitats. Two thirds of the Earth's surface is covered by ocean waters more than 200 metres deep, referred to collectively as the deep sea. Yet there remains a lack of ...

  • Construction of Deep Tunnel Will Reduce Overflows and Energy Consumption

    Excavation of a 110-foot-deep entrance shaft signals the beginning of site work in the construction of an underground tunnel and pipeline designed by Black & Veatch to carry as much as 180 million gallons per day of treated wastewater by gravity nearly two miles from Johnson County Wastewater’s Mill Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant in Shawnee, Kan., to a discharge point downstream of a ...

  • India backs exploration of rare earths in deep sea

    With China controlling most of valuable rare-earth mineral supplies, India makes a strategic move to back exploration off its own coast, writes Paula Park. India has joined the race to explore and develop deep-sea mining for rare earth elements — further complicating the geopolitics surrounding untapped sources of valuable minerals beneath the oceans. The country is building ...

  • Horizontal Directional Wells for Dewatering Operations

    During 2010 DTD completed two projects requiring horizontal dewatering wells. Both projects were designed to lower the water table for excavation purposes. One project dewatered for a source-removal excavation at an Air Force Base,  while the other dewatered contaminated groundwater prior to a construction excavation. The first project included a series of six horizontal wells set beneath an ...
