Radium Removal from Groundwater Using Sorption to Filter Sand
The use of this novel process to remove sufficient radium from drinking water by filter sand has been demonstrated. A major potential advantage of this process is that a minimal capital...

Permeability of Grouts Subjected to Chemicals
This paper presents the more recent results of a testing program which evaluated the long-term resistance to percolation of grouted soils, using acrylate, urethane and cement-bentonite...

Current Status of Flue GasDesulfurization in the United States
Flue gas desulfurization (FGD) systems have been in existence in the United States for only 17 years but they have made a tremendous impact in the operation of utility plants. At present,...

Acid Deposition in the Wind River Mountains
National attention has been focused on the discovery of acidified lakes in the Adirondack Mountains of New York and elsewhere in New England. It is commonly believed that the West, in...

Anaerobic Treatment of Phenol: Degradability, Toxicity and Kinetics
Anaerobic biodegradation of phenol was demonstrated at up to 1000 mg/L in batch serum bottle studies and 1900 mg/L in anaerobic filters. In batch serum bottle studies, concentrations of...

Integrated Assessment of the Acid Deposition Problem
To perform fully integrated assessments of the acid deposition problem it is necessary to combine models of all major aspects of the problem, including emissions, atmospheric transport,...

A Physical-Chemical Interpretation of Mean and Extreme Values in Acid Precipitation
A physical-chemical model is used for the interpretation of mean and extreme concentrations in acid precipitation. Chemical concentration frequency distributions tend to be skewed, as...

Monitoring the Chesapeake Bay Fish Spawning Grounds with Aerostats and Remote Sensing Equipment
A brief review is given of the effects of acid rain and other pollutants on the fish spawning grounds in the Chesapeake Bay area. Given the need for improved monitoring of the Bay and...

Atlantic Striped Bass Conservation Act: Unconstitutional Amendment of an Interstate Compact?
The striped bass (Morone saxatilis), a popular and valuable resource which migrates through eastern coastal waters from the Gulf of Mexico to Canada, has experienced serious decline in...

Coping with Litigation
Engineers should learn legal philosophy, even though it seems unrelated to traditional technical practice. Monitoring changes in legal theory that may increase engineers'...

Durability of Clay Pipe
Clay pipe, manufactured in accordance with ASTM C-700, has unusual resistance to attack by chemical agents. The pipe is highly stable in hydrochloric and sulfuric acid and subject to corrosive...

Danger: Natural System Modeled by Computer
Computer (mathematical) models are written to simulate such natural systems as those leading to acid rain, flooding, or toxic waste migration from disposal sites into groundwater. In some...
