  • 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. ...

  • Pesticides persist in groundwater, say SSSA

    Numerous studies over the past four decades have established that pesticides, which are typically applied at the land surface, can move downward through the unsaturated zone to reach the water table at detectable concentrations. The downward movement of pesticide degradation products, formed in situ, can also contribute to the contamination of ground water. Once in ground water, pesticides and ...
