How To Avoid Contaminant Rebound At Sites With Groundwater Contamination

Treat the source, not the symptom! Over the past 30 years, groundwater remediation  technologies and strategies have changed, yet post-treatment contaminant “rebound” is still a problem at many sites. 

First, pump and treat gave way to air sparging. Then, the rage was aerobic bioremediation using oxygen-release products – which more recently gave way to in-situ chemical oxidation (ISCO) methods based on more aggressive active-oxygen chemistries. Regardless of the technology used, the rebound effect is still a problem. Is this a failure of the technology? Or is rebound an artifact of our limited understanding of contaminant distribution in the subsurface? More often than not, it’s the latter.

Governor Christie Proposes $10 Million Statewide School Lead Testing Program For Drinking Water

Governor Chris Christie recently announced that all of the approximately 3,000 New Jersey public schools must test every drinking water fountain for lead. Testing will begin this spring, with the goal of having every drinking water fountain tested by the start of the 2016-2017 school year in September. The findings will be made available to the public. All school districts will be able to seek reimbursement for the costs of the new school testing mandate from the state. This announcement is the result of 30 schools in Newark that tested positive for lead. For more information about Christie’s plan for water testing, please click here.

Phytoremediation Uses Plants To Cleanup Contaminated Soil And Fill

EWMA is constantly searching for ways to achieve remediation goals in a more efficient and cost-effective manner through innovative technologies. In this regard, one of the more promising technologies is phytoremediation, which can effectively remediate hundreds of thousands of low-level hazardous contaminant impacted sites worldwide (30,000 in the US), especially in the context of contaminated historic fill. Phytoremediation is a type of bioremediation that uses plants, herbs, and trees to absorb contaminant pollutants from air, water, and soil, and it has been used to clean up toxic metals, pesticides, solvents, explosives, petroleum hydrocarbons and even nuclear radiation.

Enzyme Bioremediation: Alternative Remedial Technology

EWMA has a long history of applying innovative technologies to benefit our clients. The latest emerging technology uses enzymes as a sustainable alternative for remediation of soil and groundwater. Enzymes are naturally occurring-chemicals found within living organisms. Enzyme remediation is a hybrid chemical/biological treatment technology in which these chemicals are used to accelerate the breakdown of hazardous compounds in soil and groundwater. Recent advancements in biology have allowed for the isolation and purification of these enzymes for various uses. The enzymes are grown and harvested under ideal conditions then injected into contaminated soil or water. This is advantageous because subsurface conditions do not have to be altered to grow bacteria for the removal of contamination. Also, the enzymes target the contamination more efficiently than other types of in-situ remediation, and it does not generate any waste or require any disposal. As a result, enzyme remediation has the potential to reduce the cost and time required to remediate sites impacted by organic compounds.
