  • 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 ...


  • 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 ...

  • Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities to close contaminated wells, protect groundwater in EPA agreement

    The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency have reached an agreement to close 55 motor vehicle waste disposal wells across Alaska located at state vehicle repair and maintenance facilities. Some of the wells are located in state-designated groundwater protection areas and posed a risk to groundwater resources that communities use for ...

  • Groundwater movement and contaminant transport in the Earth’s subsurface are the focus of two 2017 Darcy lectures

    Quantifying water movement and contaminant transport in the Earth’s subsurface are the critical issues addressed during presentations offered through the 2017 Henry Darcy Distinguished Lecture Series in Groundwater Science. Earth’s subsurface is part of the “critical zone” — the layer of the planet from the tops of the trees to the bottom of groundwater. This zone is ...

  • News, release of a new groundwater software

    VisualRflow is a completely new reactive transport software, it is as fast as Bioscreen but as powerfull as RT3D. VisualRflow is dedicated ot 2D horizontal saturated flow and transport of dissolved reactive species. It is largely oriented towards natural attenuation, but can deal with other cases. The interface is a simplified pre- and post-processor for Modflow, when flow has been calculated, ...


  • 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. ...

  • Arizona city set for new groundwater treatment plant

    CH2M HILL, a global, full-service, engineering, construction and operations firm, announced it has received a contract from the City of Glendale, Ariz. to provide project management, engineering design, permitting and construction services for the Zone 4 Groundwater Treatment Plant project. “The project will provide the City with not only added supply to meet growth but also operational ...

  • 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 ...

  • Fundamentals of groundwater geochemistry focus of NGWA short course

    The National Ground Water Association is offering the short course, “Fundamentals of Groundwater Geochemistry,” March 14-15 in San Jose, California. An important step in completing a successful site assessment or remediation project is understanding the geochemical aspects of the work. This course is designed to provide a thorough understanding of the principles of geochemistry. Basic ...

  • DuPont takes a lead in groundwater conservation for Florida

    Each person in the US state of Florida uses about 1,720-2,160 liters of water per day, and with thousands of people moving to the state each month, public water supply needs near DuPont's plant are expected to double by 2025. Drinking water comes from two sources: surface water and groundwater. Supplying drinking water to a growing state like Florida is a challenge because 90% of the state's ...

  • Does pasture irrigation increase groundwater contamination?

    Concern about microbial contamination of groundwater from foraging dairy cows has increased as spray irrigation practices in New Zealand have increased over the years. Bacteria capable of living in both animals and humans are commonly found in cow manure. Addressing the lack of research on the topic, a team of New Zealand researchers studied the transport of microbes from two spray irrigated ...

  • Students receive groundwater industry awards for posters, presentations

    The National Ground Water Research and Educational Foundation gave $1,000 in Farvolden Awards to each of four students for paper or poster presentations made at the 2015 NGWA Groundwater Summit that took place March 16-18 in San Antonio, Texas. For the third time, Stephanie S. Wong of Baylor University, Waco, Texas, won a Farvolden Award, having also been a recipient in 2010 and 2011. This year ...

  • Hanford site treating record amount of contaminated groundwater

    U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) contractor CH2M HILL Plateau Remediation Company (CH2M HILL) has exceeded this year’s goal for treating 1.4 billion gallons of contaminated groundwater at the Hanford Site in Washington state. “In the last few years, DOE built three new groundwater treatment facilities, and now we are seeing the results," said Briant Charboneau, Federal Project ...
