  • Groundwater development is not the answer for Africa

    Research showing the extent of Africa's significant groundwater reserves should not detract from the real challenges to meeting the continent's drinking water demands, argues Roger Calow, head of the Overseas Development Institute's Water Policy Programme. Recent research has found that Africa's groundwater resources — water found in non-renewable aquifers underground — are 100 times ...

  • Fracking: leaking wells cause gas-contaminated groundwater

    Contamination of drinking water in areas close to several fracking sites in the Marcellus and Barnett Shales, USA, is caused by structural problems leading to wells leaking natural gas into aquifers, a new study suggests. The researchers measured trace amounts of chemicals, called noble gases, which formed signatures of the sources of gas contamination in over 130 samples. These findings suggest ...

  • Gasoline additive MTBE widespread in New Hampshire’s groundwater

    The gasoline additive methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE) is widespread in New Hampshire's ground water, particularly in four counties -- Rockingham, Strafford, Hillsborough and Merrimack. Ground water from these counties was more likely to contain MTBE than were samples from the rest of the state. Across the state, however, the MTBE concentrations were significantly below the state drinking water ...
