  • Groundwater papers link methane in groundwater to natural sources

    A pair of papers in Groundwater®, NGWA's bimonthly technical publication, finds a high level of methane in water wells from two Texas counties is most likely from shallow natural gas deposits, not natural gas leaks caused by hydraulic fracturing operations in the underlying Barnett Shale.  The research builds on previous studies on well water quality in the Barnett Shale ...

  • Groundwater Awareness Week raises public awareness of important resource

    Hundreds of diverse organizations did their part to raise public awareness about groundwater during the 2017 edition of Groundwater Awareness Week which ended March 11.

  • Ex Situ Treatment of Aqueous Film-Forming Foam Impacted Groundwater

    Perfluoroalkyl and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFASs) are common in Aqueous Film Forming Foams (AFFF) used for firefighting. PFASs are widely distributed across the higher trophic levels and are found in air, soil and groundwater at sites across the U.S. (EPA 505-F-14-001, March 2014). The toxicity, mobility and bioaccumulation potential of PFASs pose potential adverse effects for the environment ...
