  • Drinking recycled water?

    The Australian Government National Water Commission funded a study to establish an approach to assess the quality of water treated using managed aquifer recharge. Researchers at Australia’s CSIRO Land and Water set out to determine if the en product would meet standard drinking water guidelines. At the Parafield Aquifer Storage, Transfer and Recovery research project in South Australia, the ...

  • Water monitoring and treatment technologies gain traction as potable water resources Diminish, finds Frost & Sullivan

    Groundwater is contained in rocks that are known as aquifers. Aided by gravity, the water fills the aquifer from the bottom upwards. The lower part of the aquifer has spaces that are completely filled by water. These are termed as the 'saturated zone' of the aquifer. In the top part of the aquifer, the rock spaces contain air as well as water. This part of the aquifer is called 'unsaturated'. ...

  • 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 ...

  • Too soon to tap Namibia`s groundwater find, experts say

    The extraction of the much needed water from a large underground aquifer in northern Namibia may need to wait for further studies, officials have warned at a water investment conference. The aquifer, discovered in July, may contain enough water to sustain about one million people living in the area for 400 years at ...
