  • CRC CARE: Health screening levels for petroleum hydrocarbons in soil and groundwater

    Why have health-based screening levels (HSLs) for petroleum hydrocarbons been developed?The health-based screening levels (HSLs) for petroleum hydrocarbons was developed by the CRC CARE to address an identified need for consistent human health risk assessment of petroleum hydrocarbon contamination in Australian conditions. HSLs represent the best collective view of the available ...

  • Continued Drought Threatens Belize

    The nation of Belize, a former British colony on the Caribbean Sea just down the coast from the Mexican state of Quintana Roo, supports a surprisingly cosmopolitan culture that includes Creole, Garifuna, Mayan, Mestizo, Asian, East Indian, and even Mennonite populations, all flourishing in the shade of the palms. And through this bustling, eclectic mix passes a steady stream of fishing tourists ...

  • Clean Water Act Applies to Groundwater

    Some are calling it “the clean water case of the century.” It arose over a sewage treatment plant on Maui, in the Hawaiian Islands, that was disposing of 4 million gallons of partially treated sewage into the groundwater wells half a mile from the beach. A large percentage of the pollution found its way into the Pacific. The discharge certainly sparked controversy, but was it illegal? ...

  • Orange County Water District Joins Global Collaborative PFAS Project

    While a global concern, the response to PFAS across geographies differ. There are many efforts in parallel around research, policy, and piloting of solutions; therefore, Isle is taking a leading role to synthesize qualified research and facilitate an independent review of emerging and market-ready solutions. Supported by the industry’s leading water utilities, this unique effort will ...

  • Incorporating site-specific analytical data and machine learning to predict environmental site conditions

    EnviMetric makes intelligent predictions about the extent of groundwater contamination even when there is no available analytical data regarding contaminant concentrations. Factors such as the site location, release type, property use, and geologic setting are very predictive of how large a groundwater plume will be. EnviMetric uses all this available information to make data-based predictions of ...

  • Supreme Court Ruling Sets New Test for Clean Water Act Permitting

    On April 23, 2020, the Supreme Court ruled that pollution traveling indirectly to rivers and streams through groundwater can be covered by the Clean Water Act’s (CWA) permitting requirements.  The case, County of Maui, Hawaii v. Hawaii Wildlife Fund, et al, 590 U.S. (2020), concerned whether pollutants discharged from a ...

  • California Residents Learn of PFAS Contaminants Detected in Water Systems that Serve Millions

    In March of last year, the California State Water Resources Control Board sent California Water Code (CWC) Section 13267 orders requiring soil and ground water samples to sites considered to be potential sources of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS).   The sites were selected because they have facilities or activities that could be a potential source for this type of contamination. ...

  • Earthquake in Puerto Rico Leaves Behind Health and Safety Concerns for Building Owners and Occupants

    This week, a 6.4 magnitude earthquake struck Puerto Rico killing one person and causing injuries to others. The quake and strong aftershock knocked out power to much of the island and caused damage to infrastructure and buildings, particularly in the southwestern region of the island. A state of emergency was declared by Governor Wanda Vazquez and $130 million has been made available to deal with ...

  • Why has the government censored a fracking report?

    The government has finally released a confidential report on fracking after years of trying to keep it out of the public eye – but the paper that has emerged is heavily censored. 37 of the 48 pages of the report are entirely blacked out, while there was only one (the title page) which did not feature any redaction at all. The censorship ...

  • Groundwater Remediation for Environmental Safety

    For farmers, landowners, businesses and local governments, groundwater is an essential resource. If local groundwater is not properly protected and managed, contamination can quickly become a common environmental problem that will reduce or eliminate the ability to use the resource and require remediation to restore its value. Groundwater remediation is the process of managing and reversing the ...

    Rimini, 16th September 2019 - Today, the circular economy applied to the integrated water sector - only calculating the resource’s reuse in agriculture – is able to provide a turnover of 777 million euros and approximately 4000 jobs in Italy (“Circular Economy in Italy”, Duccio Bianchi, Edizioni Ambiente publishers). But its potential is ...

  • The Advantages of Passive Groundwater Sampling

    Since passive groundwater sampling was introduced over 20 years ago, the reliable, cost-effective sampling collecting alternative to groundwater purging has gained wide acceptance by environmental regulators and consultants. This form of groundwater sampling allows the collection of a representative sample from a discrete position within the well screen without active groundwater transport ...

  • Source water key to bacterial water safety in remote Northern Australia

    In the wet-dry topics of Australia, drinking water in remote communities is often sourced from groundwater bores. The geochemistry of that groundwater impacts the occurrence of opportunistic pathogens in the drinking water supply, researchers now report in PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases. Many aquifers in the tropics of Northern Australia are shallow and contain naturally high levels of ...

  • Urban stormwater could release contaminants to ground, surface waters

    A good rainstorm can make a city feel clean and revitalized. However, the substances that wash off of buildings, streets and sidewalks and down storm drains might not be so refreshing. Now, researchers reporting in ACS' Environmental Science & Technology have analyzed untreated urban stormwater from 50 rainstorms across the U.S., finding a wide variety of contaminants that could ...

  • Oil and water: better monitoring needed to secure vital groundwater supplies, researchers say

    When it comes to groundwater quality, fracking receives much of the public attention but misses most of the picture, according to hydrogeologists Jennifer McIntosh from the University of Arizona and Grant Ferguson from the University of Saskatchewan (USask). "There's a critical need for long-term -- years to decades -- monitoring for potential contamination of drinking water resources not only ...

  • Detention basins could catch more than stormwater

    Everywhere you go there are stormwater detention basins built near large construction projects intended to control the flow of rainwater and runoff. Now, those basins might help in controlling nitrogen runoff into rivers and lakes, according to Lauren E. McPhillips, assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering at Penn State. Speaking today (Aug. 12) at the annual meeting of the ...

  • New process discovered to completely degrade flame retardant in the environment

    A team of environmental scientists from the University of Massachusetts Amherst and China has for the first time used a dynamic, two-step process to completely degrade a common flame-retardant chemical, rendering the persistent global pollutant nontoxic. This new process breaks down tetrabromobisohenol A (TBBPA) to harmless carbon dioxide and water. The discovery highlights the potential of ...
