  • Studies reveal why drinking water wells are vulnerable to contamination

    New USGS groundwater studies explain what, when, and how contaminants may reach public-supply wells. All wells are not equally vulnerable to contamination because of differences in three factors: the general chemistry of the aquifer, groundwater age, and direct paths within aquifer systems that allow water and contaminants to reach a well. More than 100 million people in the United States receive ...

  • 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 ...

  • Unconventional Oil and Gas Production Not Currently Affecting Drinking Water Quality

    A new U.S. Geological Survey study shows that unconventional oil and gas production in some areas of Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas is not currently a significant source of methane or benzene to drinking water wells. These production areas include the Eagle Ford, Fayetteville, and Haynesville shale formations, which are some of the largest sources ...

  • Future groundwater supplies are a concern for growing Illinois communities

    Population growth may be an economic boon for communities and counties, but the subsequent increased water demand could threaten the amount and quality of public water supplies available within the next few decades, according to Scott Meyer, hydrogeologist at the Illinois State Water Survey, a division of the Institute of Natural Resource Sustainability at the University of Illinois. In fact, the ...

  • Sensors in Space Allow Daily Coastal Water Quality Monitoring

    ST. PETERSBURG, Florida, August 31, 2007 (ENS) - Using data from instruments aboard two NASA satellites, Florida researchers have created a way to map the fleeting changes in coastal water quality from space - something that has long evaded researchers and coastal managers relying only on ground-based measurements. This information has direct application for resource managers working on ...

  • Shell gets permits for limited oil drilling in Arctic waters

    The Obama administration has given Royal Dutch Shell PLC approval to begin limited exploratory oil drilling off Alaska's northwest coast. The two permits issued Wednesday clear the way for drilling in Chukchi Sea, but with conditions. Shell can only drill the top sections of wells because the company doesn't have critical emergency response equipment on site to cap a well in case of a leak. That ...
