  • WRD`s Groundwater Monitoring Keeps Safe Water Flowing in the City of Bell

    The Water Replenishment District of Southern California's (WRD) groundwater monitoring well in the City of Bell across from the Bell Community Center, continues to ensure groundwater safety for Bell residents. In 2009, WRD worked with Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard to secure over $400,000 in federal funds for this ...

  • Coordinated groundwater recharge needed

    The massive rains over California last month are not just a blessing but also a curse: a curse because the intensity of rain causes serious problems with flooding, erosion and landslides. Every watershed in California should therefore have a coordinated program to intentionally capture flood flows and recharge groundwater aquifers. Extreme weather is one reason so much reservoir storage has been ...

  • Groundwater evaluation platform

    SuperGeo Technologies has developed a data platform for groundwater recharge areas in order to evaluate the recharge potential. The platform is able to assist researchers in delimiting groundwater recharge areas and also in determining parameters such as recharge rate, pumping rate, flow rate and recharge potential. Water resource protection is one of the most important policies in Taiwan. ...

  • 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. ...

  • Midwest groundwater tainted with sewage and chemicals

    Raw sewage is flowing into rivers and streams across central and eastern Iowa as one after another wastewater facilities are inundated by the record floods that have swept the state during the past two weeks. Livestock manure is also part of the nasty mix, along with spilled fuel and chemicals, all heading to the flooding Mississippi River and down to the Gulf of Mexico. The U.S. Environmental ...

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

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, ...

  • 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 ...

  • Mapping groundwater flooding for the EU Floods Directive

    In the coming years the EU Floods Directive1 will require Member States to produce flood hazard and risk maps. Taking the UK as a case study, new research highlights the need for advances in data collection, mapping and groundwater flood warning systems to meet EU requirements for maps and management plans. Although often occurring less frequently than fluvial (river) flooding, the effects of ...

  • A Hydrogen Recirculation System For The Treatment Of Tce-Impacted Groundwater

    ABSTRACT: To speed the rate of reductive dechlorination of trichloroethylene (TCE)-impacted groundwater at the Old Jet Engine Test Site (OJETS), Offutt AFB, Nebraska, an in situ pilot-scale dissolved hydrogen addition system was installed. The test area consisted of an injection well, a recovery well, and five monitoring wells within an 8.5 m x 4.3 m (28 ft x 14 ft) test plot. Groundwater was ...


  • 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 ...
