  • New sewage sampler enables real-time control

    HACH LANGE has launched an innovative new wastewater sampling system, which will open up a new world of opportunity by enabling water companies to continuously monitor sewage at the plant inlet. In the past, it has been almost impossible to monitor influent because of the physical and biological challenges that sewage presents – ragging, biofouling etc. However, following trials at a ...


  • Groundwater monitoring: what’s winter field work like?

    Although the stimulation phase of the Newberry EGS Demonstration has come to a close, field work continues throughout the winter months on the volcano (brrr!). We’re currently collecting and analyzing groundwater samples in order to monitor any changes in the local groundwater system. This work is intended to make sure thestimulation hasn’t affected the quality of the groundwater high ...

  • 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 ...

  • Solar power to clean groundwater

    The US Environmental Protection Agency's Jared Blumenfeld (image), US Congressman Mike Thompson and Linda Adams, Secretary of the California Environmental Protection Agency have provided details about recent exciting energy conservation and cleanup accomplishments at the Frontier Fertilizer Superfund site in Davis, California. An electrical resistance heating system partially funded by the ...

  • Continuous toxicity monitoring in drinking water and groundwater is highly is recommended

    The monitoring of water for unknown pollutants is of great importance, especially when surface water, drinking water or groundwater are used. Since a variety of substances are harmful for human being reliable online monitoring is recommended. LAR's online toxicity ...

  • High-resolution groundwater profiling and monitoring for cost-effective, accurate, and detailed results

    Understanding contaminant migration pathways, concentration gradients, and monitoring these over time, is key to a successful contaminated site cleanup. To achieve this, high-resolution groundwater profiling and monitoring is essential. This workshop will present tools that can be used to gain the detailed data required, and how their principles and operation allow this in an accurate and ...

  • Groundwater pollution in Europe: an overview

    An overview of groundwater contaminants in Europe is provided by a recent study, which calls for more integrated monitoring using a range of indicators. Groundwater contamination presents serious health and environmental concerns. A number of Directives, including the Water Framework, Groundwater, Nitrates, Industrial Emissions and Landfill Directives, together aim to protect groundwater from ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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. ...

  • Pennsylvania Groundwater Contaminated By Coal Ash

    HARRISBURG, Pennsylvania, September 18, 2007 (ENS) - Disposing of coal ash in mines is contaminating water supplies throughout Pennsylvania, according to a report released today by the advocacy group Clean Air Task Force and the nonprofit, public interest law firm Earthjustice. In 10 of 15 mines examined across the state, groundwater and streams near areas where coal ash, or coal ...

  • New guidance for groundwater site characterization

    Synopsis: Environmental practitioners are often constrained by rigorous time and monetary constraints, which can lead to the collection of limited data sets and decisions made based on an inadequate understanding of site conditions. To facilitate effective site assessments in British Columbia, the BC Ministry of Environment recently released a new guidance document, "Technical Guidance #8", for ...

  • 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 ...

  • Removing High Explosives from Groundwater

    In an initiative supported by EM, Los Alamos National Laboratory's Corrective Actions Program is addressing high explosive contamination in surface water and groundwater at a location this summer in the forests ...

  • New map of global groundwater depths

    Despite groundwater’s importance to ecosystems, little is known about its global distribution. Researchers have now developed a model to map groundwater, revealing that ecosystems covering 22-32% of the Earth’s surface rely on this important resource. Groundwater is vital for many ecosystems, providing crucial support to plants and animals, especially during droughts. ...

  • 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 ...

  • EPA to excavate contaminated soil, monitor groundwater at Ellenville scrap iron and metal superfund site in Ulster County, N.Y. (NY)

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) today announced that it has finalized the steps it will take to clean up the Ellenville Scrap Iron and Metal Superfund site in the Village of Ellenville, N.Y. in Ulster County. EPA will excavate contaminated soil from six different areas at the site, consolidate the soil on the landfill portion of the site and then securely cap the landfill, which ...

  • Dissolved Methane Found in Some New York Groundwater

    A recent study that looked at groundwater samples from more than 200 wells across New York State found levels of naturally-occurring methane high enough to warrant monitoring or other actions in nine percent of the water samples tested, according to U.S. Geological Survey research. While 91 percent of samples tested found no dissolved methane, or levels below the threshold that would require ...

  • Nitrate concentrations of groundwater increasing in many areas of US

    Nitrate is the most common chemical contaminant in the world’s ground water, including in aquifers used for drinking-water supply. Nitrate in drinking water of the United States is regulated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) because of concerns related to infant health and possible cancer risks. Use of man-made synthetic fertilizers has steadily increased since World War II, ...
