  • Groundwater Modelling Software for the Environment Agency

    The Environment Agency has recently renewed its contract for groundwater modelling software for up to a further 3 years. The Groundwater Vistas and Aquifer software is supplied by ESI, the UK's leading independent soil and groundwater consultancy. ...

  • Regional scale groundwater understanding

    South-central Ontario, and specifically the Oak Ridges Moraine area, has been the focus of considerable investigation relating to groundwater over the past few decades.  The importance of the collection, management and utilization of various integrated datasets (e.g. climate, streamflow, groundwater) in the development, application and refinement of conceptual and numerical groundwater flow ...

  • How vulnerable is our groundwater?

    When water travels through soil and bedrock to the water table, it carries minerals, nutrients or chemicals from the surface with it. Environmental research is increasingly concerned with preferential flow, or the movement of water through pores and cracks at a faster rate and bypassing most of the surrounding material, either soil or fractured rock. A special section on preferential flow ...

  • Tungsten groundwater contamination

    Originally thought to be non-toxic, tungsten is replacing lead in fishing weights and in ammunition for hunting and recreational shooting. However, recent studies indicate that (under certain environmental conditions) some forms of tungsten can move readily through soil and leach into groundwater. A Kansas State University scientist investigates. Tungsten is a naturally occurring metallic element ...

  • USGS Groundwater Model: New Tool for Communities in Northern and Central Arizona

    A new groundwater model of the interconnected aquifers in central and northern Arizona was released today by the U.S. Geological Survey, following a multi-year development effort that involved the Arizona Department of Water Resources and regional cooperators.  The computer model, known as the “Northern Arizona Regional Groundwater-Flow Model,” simulates how recharge from ...

  • Volatile dense chemical liquids in groundwaters can produce slowly bubbling gas flow

    Despite decades of research, the cleanup of soil and groundwater contaminated by dense non-aqueous phase liquids (DNAPLs) used in numerous industrial applications remains a daunting challenge. These compounds, including degreasers, dry cleaning fluids, creosote, solvents and coal tar, when present below ground can generate hazardous concentrations for decades to centuries as they dissolve into ...

  • Pesticide pollution slow to reach groundwater

    Underground water aquifers are a significant source of drinking water. In a recent study, French researchers found that pesticides applied to crops can take many years to sink down through the ground and reach groundwater. This means that they may still be entering aquifers, even after agricultural application has stopped. Groundwater is found underground in absorbent layers of rock. ...

  • New model simulates US groundwater and surface water interactions

    A new model to simulate groundwater and surface water interactions has been released by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). The groundwater and surface water FLOW (GSFLOW) model simultaneously accounts for climatic conditions, runoff across the land surface, subsurface flow and storage, and the connections among terrestrial systems, streams, lakes, wetlands, and ground water. 'GSFLOW can be used ...

  • Impacts of groundwater on local rainfall under a changing climate

    Climate change is expected to bring hotter conditions to many important agricultural regions. This will affect rates of evaporation from the ground and may also have an impact on local rainfall patterns. A recent study suggests that the depth of groundwater may determine the susceptibility of a region to drought following changes in temperature and rainfall. Understanding the transfer of water ...

  • Groundwater availability detailed in California`s Central Valley

    A new, three-dimensional water-modeling tool provides a detailed picture of how water flows below ground and how it relates to surface-water in rivers and canals in California’s Central Valley. The Central Valley Hydrologic Model, developed by scientists at the U.S. Geological Survey, is available for use by water managers and other agencies. The model was designed to help resource agencies ...

  • Groundwater Resources Generally Abundant in Coastal Carolinas

    Large volumes of high quality groundwater fill aquifers along the Atlantic Coastal Plain (ACP) in North and South Carolina. Groundwater levels in much of the region remain relatively unchanged from predevelopment days, despite declines in some locations from large-scale pumping. These are among the key findings of a major federal study, conducted by the U.S. Geological Survey, to assess the ...

  • Groundwater footprint reveals unsustainable water consumption

    Reservoirs of water stored under the earth’s surface, otherwise known as groundwater, are a valuable resource. However, using a footprinting method, a new global study has indicated that about 1.7 billion people live in areas where groundwater is being used more quickly than it can be replenished. Groundwater supplies water to billions of people and is important for agricultural ...

  • Hot microbes cause groundwater cleanup rethink

    While investigating ways of cleaning up groundwater contamination, scientists examined how microbes break down contaminants under the soil’s surface and found that subsurface temperatures associated with microbial degradation can become too hot for the microbes to grow and consume the groundwater contaminants. This can slow down the clean up of the groundwater and even continue the spread of ...

  • Call for abstracts for NGWA Conference on Hydrogeophysics and Deep Groundwater

    The call for abstracts is now open for the NGWA Conference on Hydrogeophysics and Deep Groundwater that is taking place in March 2017. Abstracts are being sought for the NGWA Conference on Hydrogeophysics and Deep Groundwater in the following two tracks and are due October 31, 2016. Track 1 — Applications of Hydrogeophysics to Groundwater Characterization, ...

  • Abanaki Corporation Releases DNAPL Groundwater Remediation System

    Abanaki Corporation is pleased to announce a DNAPL Groundwater Remediation System designed to remove high viscosity oils such as creosote from groundwater. These systems are used to remove oil contamination from existing monitoring wells. DNAPLs such as creosote tend to sink to the bottom of a well and require a specially designed system to ensure the oil is removed. Stabilizer bars are installed ...
