Evaluating the sustainability of methods for mitigation of arsenic contaminated aquifers

Evaluating the sustainability of methods for mitigation of arsenic contaminated aquifers

Proceedings of the 16th International Conference on Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering, Osaka, Japan, 12-16 September, 2005: 2419-2423

Fresh water is a precious, non-renewable resource that is depleting rapidly in countries such as India, China, and even in the U.S. where rivers are drying up and water table levels are decreasing. To obtain safe drinking water, 2 direct means are available: (1) treatment of the water as it leaves the pumps (from the tube wells) such as ion exchange; and (2) application of in-situ geochemical aquifer intervention procedures designed to control and mitigate arsenic pollution.
