The Environmental Valuation Reference Inventory (EVRI) for Water Related Benefits Transfers
Managing our water resources requires knowledge not only of flows, water chemistry and aquatic life, but also of the various uses and economic values that humans place upon the water....

Recover Inorganic Solids from Obsolete Propellants
A feasible process was developed to recover inorganic solids (energetics and metallic fuel) from obsolete polyurethane-based propellants in order to solve their associated long-term disposal...

Specification of Cu, Pb and Cr in Contaminated Sediment Effected by pH
Sediment was sampled from a contaminated river. Sequential extraction was applied to determine the speciations of Cu, Pb, and Cr in the sediment with varied pH (5–9), and the redox potential...

Retention of Multiple Heavy Metal Ions by Fly Ash
Clayey soils are widely used as liner materials in landfills. They, not only retard the transport of leachates due to their low permeability, but also retain the heavy metal ions due to...

Simulation of Perilithic Algae as a Biofilm and Its Interaction with the Water Column
A one-dimensional bioflim model has been constructed consisting of a particulate phase of algae and inert material and diffusive transport of nutrients and oxygen. Also included is mass...

A Process Unit Based Approach to Media-Integrated Waste Minimization: A Paint Manufacturing Case Study
Research conducted at the School of Engineering, University of Guelph, has developed a media-integrated waste minimization plan for a major Ontario paint and coatings manufacturer. The...

Use of Artificial Neural Networks for Agricultural Chemical Assessment of Rural Private Wells
The detection of agricultural chemicals in rural private wells has prompted for numerous studies at regional, state, and national levels. A principal concern arises from the fact that...

Identifying Potential Trophic Relationships and Bioaccumulation Pathways between Fish and Invertebrates
A large ocean monitoring database was used to quantify relationships between demersal fish, epibenthic macroinvertebrates (EMI) and benthic infauna that provide potential pathways for...

Alachlor Transport in Laboratory Soil Columns
Spraying of agricultural chemicals result in their travel downward through the unsaturated zone and adsorption to the surrounding soil. Infiltration from rainfall and irrigation solubilize...

Biodegradation of Dichloromethane in Leachate
The biodegradation of dichioromethane (DCM) in landfill leachate is examined by means of a series of laboratory tests conducted in a controlled environment. These tests demonstrate that...

Degradation of Carboxydiphenyl Ether via Bioaugmentation
Two diphenyl ether-degrading bacteria, Pseudomonas pseudo-alcallgenes strain POB31O and P. sp....

Bacterial and Chemical Pollution of Littoral Waters of Lake Ohrid at Pogradec—Town Area
The Pogradec shore waters exceed these bacteriological standards and provide risks to the public health. The levels of the chemical indexes clearly show the influence of organic pollution....

Overview of DoD Research in Groundwater Modeling
The U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station leads a multi-agency research program for the Department of Defense (DoD) which continues the development of integrated, comprehensive...
