Risk Reduction of Lead and Mercury in Michigan

Leachate Chemistry: Its Implications for Clogging
The clogging of leachate collection systems is controlled by interrelated mi and chemical phenomena. Mesocosms containing landfill materials and simulating leachate collection were infiltrated...

Potential Microbial Impacts on Groundwater Quality
Over the last decade there has been significant progress in the understanding of sub-surface microbiology. The ubiquity of microorganisms within groundwaters forms a major part of these...

Comparison of Commonly Used Odor Control Technologies

VOC Inventory at New York City Wastewater Treatment Plants
Although the New York State Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 (CAAA) implementation plan is not yet in place, the Citys Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is taking a proactive...

Critical Issues in the Monitoring and Control of Toxic Air Contaminants at POTWs
Todays challenge at Publicly Owned Treatment Works (POTWs) is to assess and reduce the environmental risk posed by toxic air contaminants (TACs). This paper attempts to identify the critical...

Pilot Testing of a Zero-Discharge Treatment Process
As environmental regulations become more stringent, pulp and paper mills are investigating alternatives to conventional biological treatment and discharge of effluents into receiving waters....

Dynamic Optimal Groundwater Remediation by Granular Activated Carbon
Objective functions to describe the operating and capital costs of GAC treatment are incorporated into a control theory model for optimal pump-and-treat groundwater remediation design....

A Multiperiod Approach for the Solution of Groundwater Management Problems using the Outer Approximation Method
In a previous work the Outer Approximation method was presented (Karatzas and Pinder, 1993 and 1996) for the solution of groundwater management problems where the selected pumping rates...

Permeability of Clay Liners with Contaminants
Clays are increasingly used as liners for waste disposal facilities. Chemical compatibility studies with hydraulic conductivity tests must be performed to determine the effect of the waste...

Design and Implementation of a Multi-Faceted Site Remediation
This technical paper presents a case history of the design, construction, and start-up of a multi-faceted site remediation system. The case history includes a description of the site background,...

Comparative Simulation of Oil Weathering
Oil spills in the aquatic environment, an unfortunately more and more common occurrence, cause contamination effects which negatively impact water quality, health of ecosystems and water...

Comparison of Methods for Sizing Secondary Treatment Filters for Wastewater
The trickling filter process in which a bacterial biomass is allowed to grow attached to a filter medium of rock or plastic is effectively used for removal of organic materials in domestic...

Study of Biological Reactors for Control of Odor, VOC and Toxic Emissions from Wastewater Treatment Plants
An experiment was performed to assess the use of biological reactors to treat off-gases from publicly owned treatment works (POTWs) containing low concentrations of hydrogen sulfide (H2S)...

Denitrification of Ground Water/Waste Water using the Aquacel System
Within the United States there are vast reserves of ground water which are no longer suitable for drinking because of high concentration (> 10 mg/l NO3-N) nitrates. Furthermore,...

Treatment of Wet Weather Discharges in Columbus, Georgia
The City of Columbus, Georgia and the Columbus Water Works (CWW) instigated a combined sewer overflow (CS 0) control program to protect the Chattahoochee River against adverse impacts...

Artificial Recharge of a Buried Glacial Aquifer in South Dakota
The Huron Project of the High Plains States Groundwater Demonstration Program was designed to artificially recharge a buried glacial aquifer in eastern South Dakota High flows from the...

Risk Analysis of Drinking Water Treatment and Supply Facilities Handling Highly Hazardous Chemicals
Due to increasing public concern of risks from handling highly hazardous chemicals at various facilities, a number of state regulatory agencies, including the State of California, have...

Production of Nitrous Oxide Gas under Sequencing Batch Reactor System
N2O, like CO2, H2O, and CH6,...
