August 6, 2012--Hydraulic fracturing poses substantial water pollution risks, analysts say (Science Daily)
Risk analysts have concluded that the disposal of contaminated wastewater from hydraulic fracturing (or "fracking") wells producing natural gas in the intensively developed Marcellus Shale region poses a substantial potential risk of river and other water pollution.
Seven years ago, Paul Edmiston was working in his laboratory on a potential way to detect the presence of explosives. By accident, he created a material that acted as a powerful sponge that could absorb small organic compounds like gasoline, motor oil, and pesticides dissolved in water. Today Dr.
Each day, American municipalities discharge treated wastewater back into natural sources at a rate that would fill an empty Lake Champlain within six months. Growing pressure on water supplies and calls for updating the ancient subterranean piping infrastructure have brought new scrutiny to this step in the treatment process, which is labeled wasteful and unnecessary by a spectrum of voices.
October 21, 2011--Environmental Protection Agency announces plans to regulate water from fracking (Los Angeles Times)
The Environmental Protection Agency said it planned to regulate wastewater discharged by companies producing natural gas from shale formations, including chemically laced water used in a controversial extraction process known as hydraulic fracturing.
Building owners and managers are discovering a great untapped resource: the water that flows out of—and off—homes and commercial structures. Some wastewater from buildings is reused after treatment at municipal plants, but much of it ends up flowing back into the environment. And buildings rarely are equipped to capture rainwater.
A fuel cell that generates electricity from waste water polluted with organic compounds while all the while cleaning the water sounds like the stuff of science fantasy, but Chinese researchers appear to have developed one.
The American landscape is dotted with hundreds of thousands of new wells and thousands of drilling rigs, as the country scrambles to tap into this century's gold rush for
December 22, 2010--Nevada judge rules state can take water coalition money to help balance state budget (Los Angeles Times)
The governor and Nevada lawmakers are legally entitled to take $62 million from the Clean Water Coalition in southern Nevada to balance the state budget, a judge has ruled. Clark County District Judge David Barker on Tuesday ruled in favor of Gov.
December 5, 2010--Method developed to simultaneously desalinate water, produce hydrogen and treat wastewater (Science Daily)
Fresh water and reusable energy. Humans are on a constant hunt for a sustainable supply of both. Water purification requires a lot of energy, while utility companies need large amounts of water for energy production. Their goal is to find a low-energy-required treatment technology.
A new coalition of civic, business and environmental leaders is warning that Colorado's water and sewer needs are still growing, but the budgets to get the projects done are not.
