  • 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 ...

  • Microorganisms in toxic groundwater fine-tuned to survive

    Microorganisms can indeed live in extreme environments, but the ones that do are highly adapted to survive and little else, according to a collaboration that includes Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Joint Genome Institute (JGI) and the University of Oklahoma. The metagenomic study of a 'stressed' microbial community in groundwater near a former waste disposal pond site on ...

  • HPR-40 MIMS System Assists in Denitrification Studies

    Denitrification is the process carried out by bacteria that converts nitrites and nitrates to nitrogen, nitric oxide and nitrous oxide gases. Two of these gases have been linked with ozone layer depletion and global warming. Denitrification is an anaerobic process and occurs in environments where oxygen levels are depleted, such as within soils and groundwater. The Hiden HPR-40 membrane inlet ...

  • Unintended energy impact from bioethanol production

    Increasing crop production to meet demand for biofuels potentially increases the use of nitrogen fertilisers, which can lead to nitrate pollution in surface and groundwater. A new study is the first to consider the unintended extra energy needed to treat water to remove nitrate contamination in drinking water supplies. In the United States, the Renewable Fuel Standard1 (RFS) stipulates the ...

  • Water well owners should check water periodically for bacteria, nitrate

    Bacteria and nitrate are widespread in the environment, so every household water well owner should regularly test their water to make sure no health risk exists, the National Ground Water Association recommended today. While most bacteria found in water do not cause disease, disease-causing bacteria called pathogens can exist in well water given the right circumstances, NGWA said. Nitrate is not ...

  • Biopico Systems, Irvine, CLEW, Pasadena, and AquaNano, Monrovia Win $300,000 in Green Technology Contracts from EPA

  • Mining by-products reduce Algal Blooms

    A joint research project conducted by the Australian Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) and the Western Australian Department of Water has shown that some mining by-products can be effective in preventing nutrients from entering river systems, thereby reducing the potential for algal blooms.A range of mining industry by-product materials was investigated to ...

  • Using mining by-products to reduce algal blooms

    A joint project between CSIRO and the Western Australian Department of Water investigated a range of mining industry by-product materials, which are currently unused, to determine whether they could instead be used to filter nutrients from natural waters or to treat wastewater that would otherwise be discarded. CSIRO project leader, Dr Grant Douglas, says the use of abundant, low-cost by-product ...

  • EPA Makes the Grade on Performance Report
