Removal of Selenium in Drinking Water by Manganese Greensand, Iron Oxide-Coated Sand and Ion-Exchange Resin

Remediating Selenium Impacts on Endangered Fish in the Upper Colorado River

Management of Drainage Water, Salt, and Selenium as Resources

Trace Element Investigations Before Irrigation Development

Drainage Ponds and Demonstration Wetlands
In California's southern San Joaquin Valley, subsurface irrigation drainage pumped into shallow evaporation ponds often contains elevated concentrations of selenium. The selenium...

Agroforestry as a Method of Salt and Selenium Management on Irrigated Land in the San Joaquin Valley
Since 1985, several San Joaquin Valley growers, with the support of State and federal agencies, have attempted to manage salt and selenium using agroforestry. Numerous studies and research...

Bird Use of an Evaporation Basin and a Mitigation Wetland
A 58-ha freshwater wetland was constructed to mitigate for decreased avian reproductive success and survivorship caused by a 296-ha selenium contaminated evaporation basin. To decrease...

Sources and Circulation of Salt in the San Joaquin River Basin
Historical data and a water quality model were used to quantify the sources of salt, boron and selenium in the lower San Joaquin River (SJR) basin, California. Mean monthly data for sources...

A Regional Management Plan to Improve Water Quality in the Grassland Basin
Seven irrigation and drainage districts on the west side of Californias San Joaquin Valley have formed a regional drainage entity to implement programs that will reduce the load of selenium...

Economic Issues Regarding Water Quality Objectives in the Grassland Basin
A conceptual framework is presented for evaluating the potential costs and benefits of water quality objectives in the Grassland Basin. The investments and expenditures required to achieve...

Selenite Transport in Unsaturated Tuff From Yucca Mountain

Development of a Selenium TMDL for the San Joaquin River
The objective of this study is to devise a user-friendly, reliable method to calculate a screening-level 'Total Maximum Daily Load' (TMDL) for the San Joaquin River and similar western...

Selenium in Soil, Water, Sediment, and Biota of the Lower Sun River Area, West-Central Montana
A U.S. Department of the Interior study started in 1990 examined the source, movement, fate, and possible biological effects of selenium associated with irrigation drainage from the Sun...

Distribution and Mobilization of Dissolved Selenium in Ground Water of the Irrigated Grand and Uncompahgre Valleys, Western Colorado
Distribution of dissolved selenium in ground water of the irrigated Grand and Uncompahgre Valleys is affected by the aqueous geochemical environment of the shallow ground-water system...

Local Water, Local Control
Governments throughout the world are trying to improve the performance of publicly-owned and operated irrigation districts by turning operation and management of the districts over to...

Pilot-scale Anaerobic Biological Removal of Selenium from Agricultural Drainage Water Using Sequencing Batch Reactors

Stochastic Modeling of Water Quality in the San Joaquin River, California, Using Monte Carlo Simulation

Anaerobic Biological Reduction of Selenate
When soils with high concentrations of naturally-occuring selenium are irrigated and drained, selenium is leached from the soil and appears in the drainage water. Selenium has caused death...

Selenium in the Kendrick Reclamation Project, Wyoming
Elevated concentrations of selenium in water, bottom sediment, and biota were noted during a reconnaissance investigation of the Kendrick Reclamation Project in central Wyoming. Dissolved-selenium...

Geohydrologic Aspects of Water-Quality Problems of the San Joaquin Valley, California
Salinity and selenium concentrations in shallow ground water of the western San Joaquin Valley, California, are related to the geomorphology and hydrology of the alluvial fans. High salinity...
