Ground-Water Quality in the Piedmont Region of Baltimore County, Maryland: Comparison of Data Collected in to Data Collected in Supplemental Report No. S2/RI66, Bolton, D.W., As a follow-up to the ground water study, this report evaluates data collected from 46 domestic wells and three springs that were previously.

A massive sinkhole recently collapsed nearby Mulberry, Florida, draining approximately million gallons of radioactive and contaminated water into Florida's : Trevor Nace. Duringgroundwater from 63 wells located at 31 sites throughout eastern Broward County, Florida, was sampled and analyzed to determine baseline water quality conditions.

The physical and chemical parameters analyzed included field measurements (pH and temperature), physical characteristics (color, turbidity, and specific conductance), major inorganic ions.

common radionuclides in California’s groundwater are uranium and gross alpha. Uranium: Based on SWRCB data from tostandby and active public water supply wells (of 4, wells sampled) had at least one detection above the MCL of 20 pCi/L, with a maximum concentration of 1, pCi/L.

MCLFile Size: KB. SourcesThere are two sources of radioactive contamination in drinking water. The first is naturally occurring radionuclides contained in the soil that water moves through.

Some areas in Florida are susceptible to contamination from phosphate-rich soils and rock. The second source of radioactive contamination comes from man-made sources. There is no known man-made. It is likely that the radon survey data for Lee County may reflect in part the Alva, Florida data associated with the “hot spot” of radiation as previously described.

Florida is home to the world largest phosphate mine, and now Mosaic wants to strip mine an additio acres in Manatee, Hardee and De Soto counties. This is not the first time a sinkhole has opened up below a radioactive phosphogypsum stack, nor is it the first time Mosaic has had problems with handling its hazardous waste.

The U.S. Geological Survey cooperative ground-water monitoring program in Miami-Dade County, Florida, expanded from 4 to 98 continuously recording water-level monitoring wells during the period. Network design was based on area specific assessments; however, no countywide statistical assessments of network coverage had been performed for the purpose.

Radionuclides occur naturallyas trace elements in rocks, soil, and ground water as a consequence of the radioactive decay of uranium and thorium. This decay occurs because these elements are unstable; they continually release energy into the environment until a stable, non radioactive substance is Size: KB.

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection is the state’s lead agency for environmental management and stewardship – protecting our air, water and land.

The vision of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection is to create strong community partnerships, safeguard Florida’s natural resources and enhance its ecosystems. The Technical Series on Ground Water Quality This series of reports provides information to the professional/technical community about ground water quality in Ohio’s aquifers.

These reports use data from: the ambient ground water quality monitoring program; and the public water system compliance Size: 1MB. Radionuclides can also form their own colloids.

Colloid-facilitated transport of radionuclides is a concern in groundwater and risk assessments due to pore exclusion of colloidal particles which can result in transport of radionuclides in groundwater at a rate that is greater than the average groundwater velocity (Degeuldre, ).

Radioactivity in groundwater occurs in a variety of different geologic settings within the United States (Zapecza and Szabo, ). Radium, one of the principal sources of radioactivity, is highest in quartz-rich sand aquifers in the Northern Atlantic Coastal Plain where low pH conditions release radium from the sediments (Szabo and dePaul, ).

In addition to the general data requirements discussed in Subsectionit may be necessary to know other subsurface information to remediate radionuclides in ground water, surface water, and leachate.

Treatability studies are usually necessary to ensure that the contaminated ground water can be treated effectively at the design flow. A subsurface geologic characterization. What water treatment process can remove radionuclides. (top) Whether or not a particular treatment technology effectively removes radionuclides from drinking water depends on the contaminant's chemical and physical characteristics as well as the water system's characteristics (e.g., the source water quality and the water system size).

naturally, and comes from the soil, but sometimes we see manmade radionuclides in drinking water. We require public water systems serving at least 15 homes or 25 full-time residents to test and meet drinking water standards for radionuclides. If your public water system serves fewer homes, you may still want to test for radionuclides.

Sources A radionuclide is a radioactive chemical that is found in water. It is usually, but not always, naturally occurring. Radionuclides contaminating water is a developing issue.

Radioactivity in ground water formerly was limited to natural causes such as radon, radium, or uranium. Drinking Water Exposure to Chemical and Pathogenic Contaminants: Radionuclides Naturally occurring and man-made radioactive elements undergo radioactive decay in a series of transformations. Energy is emitted during each step of this decay process, which occur as quickly as seconds or as long as many years, until the last step when a stable.Office in Fort Collins, Colorado.
