Monitoring of VOCs in Porewater

by SORBISENSE     based in Tjele, DENMARK

Monitoring VOCs in porewater in the unsaturated zone is now possible.

Sorbisense regularly offers new options for using the patented Sorbicell, which is used to monitor surface water, wastewater and groundwater.

The latest is almost as “ground-breaking” as the SorbiCell itself. Until now it has been difficult, if not impossible, to directly monitor for volatile substances in pore water in the unsaturated zone. But the environmental consultancy firm Ejlskov A/S in Aarhus combined the use of Sorbisense sampling equipment with the proven technology of soil water samplers. With this combination, a practical new method is made available, which allows for monitoring the presence of porewater-dissolved VOCs above the groundwater table. This provides a significantly improved basis to define and determine the leaching risk to the groundwater, and thus allows for better and more cost-efficient decisions to prevent the pollution in reaching the groundwater.

A simple construction with multiple options

The application uses SorbiCell VOC combined with suction cells, soil water samplers. When installed correctly, and applied with the correct procedures, the suctions cells extract capillary bound water from the soil matrix. The system demands no other resource than a container that is put under vacuum. The vacuum in the container then ensures a flow through of the Sorbicell over a period of time, fx. 2-3 weeks. The method is highly suitable for monitoring a site over longer periods of time.

CONDOMINIUM REPLACES WATER SOFTENER WITH GREEN SCALEWATCHER WATER CONDITIONER

by Scalewatcher North America Inc.     based in Oxford, PENNSYLVANIA (USA)

Angel*Haus Condominium, a condo community in Purgatory’s Durango Mountain Resort, Colorado, has replaced its water softener with the computerized, electronic, water-conditioner Scalewatcher from Scalewatcher North America. By installing Scalewatcher, the condominum has improved the water quality, removed the need to buy and store salt and substantially reduced its water costs. Angelhaus Condominium is a modernised 40 unit building containing individually owned one, two and three bedroom units. Located at the base of the Durango Mountain Resort and less than 200 yards from the base lifts, the units are primarily rented out by their owners for skiing and walking vacations. The managing agents were spending around $100 a month on salt for the condominium’s water softener in addition to a further $200 to $700 for regular maintenance to calibrate the unit. Despite this expenditure, owners regularly complained about the poor water quality. “I would also have to spend time and effort hauling the salt downstairs to where the softener was located and I was also conscious we were flushing water down the drain”, said Sarelyn Saint, Managing Agent at Angel*Haus Condominium. Looking for an alternative solution for Angel*Haus Condominiums’ hard water problem, Sarelyn Saint decided to investigate the Scalewatcher system. After presenting the information to his board it was decided to install a Scalewatcher unit onto the main water line. “We had a board meeting just two months after the system was installed and our board members mentioned that they could tell the difference with the water, particularly the dishes and taste of the water”, concluded Sarelyn Saint. “We no longer have to budget for water treatment but best of all I don’t even have to think about it anymore and neither do the owners”. Condos are often on a shared water or loop system, with the pipes running from one unit to the next or are all fed off of a main valve. In hard water areas, scale quickly builds up in pipes and water fed applicances meaning that the water supply has to be regularly turning off for maintenance. Shutting off the service to one unit often means shutting off the service to all the units for work to be carried out. To alleviate the problems, many condominiums purchase water softeners. However, water softeners use copious amounts of both water and salt, which are expensive to buy and salt is also bulky to store. In addition, in many States now, including Southern California, municipalities and water departments are severely limiting, and in some cases prohibiting, the use of salt-regenerating water softeners due to concern regarding the increased levels of salt in ground water. The award-winning Scalewatcher system not only helps building managers meet these regulations by minimizing salt usage but also saves money on salt purchase and has the additional benefit of removing scale from water-fed equipment. The environmentally friendly Scalewatcher provides a permanent solution to hard water problems without the need of chemicals, salt or maintenance. It works by producing a varying electronically applied force field, induced by a coil wrapped around the outside of the pipework, which keeps the minerals in suspension and thus prevents limescale forming. The water’s increased solubility enables it to dissolve existing scale, which is gradually washed away. Scalewatcher models are based on continuous research and over 20 years experience and expertise as market leaders in electronic scale control with countless units sold worldwide. The patented Scalewatcher systems start at $248.00 USD and are capable of treating pipe sizes from one to 120 inches. All Scalewatcher systems come with a full performance guarantee and include free shipping throughout North America

In-Situ Groundwater Remediation for the Site Remediation Industry

by NANO IRON s.r.o.     based in Rajhrad, CZECH REPUBLIC

In-situ groundwater remediation method is based on injection of Fe(0) nanoparticles through application wells directly into the contaminated water. nZVI injection is very fast, reaching significantly lower operating costs compared to commonly used remediation methods (expensive construction of reactive barriers, building of pump&treat stations, excavation of contaminated soil etc.). In comparison to other in-situ technologies a far lower quantities of injected chemical is needed due to high efficiency of the product and thus the time and cost of remediation is reduced.
