Groundwater Remediation consists of a multitude of available processes and methods to remove pollutants from water sources that are found under the ground, in areas such as porous layers of soil and sand or flowing through rock formations, known as aquifers. One or multiple HDDW’s can be used to accomplish a form of groundwater remediation that does not do harm to the environment. Another advantage of the HDDW technique is that it can remediate groundwater on a larger scale than other Groundwater Remediation techniques. Looking for more information on groundwater remediation?

Groundwater remediation – multiple sources
Sources of groundwater include those of land-surface origin, such as rainwater or snow and ice melt as well as water that flows through the earth from the bottom of lakes, ponds, rivers and streams. Another source can be “fossil groundwater” that has been trapped in rock formations over long periods of time. Groundwater provides approximately 97 percent of the world’s reserves of accessible freshwater, supplying over two billion people with water for their everyday needs. Groundwater is also used on farms for crop irrigation.
Groundwater remediation using an HDDW
Groundwater remediation using the HDDW method enables the extraction of contaminated groundwater water in addition to the ability to provide a system capable of redistributing the water back into the ground after purification.
Some methods of groundwater remediation consist of removing and treating the water from the ground, while other in situ methods treat the water within their naturally-occurring surroundings. Physical, biological and chemical solutions to achieving groundwater purification can be employed. Choosing the best of method of treatment is based upon the particular situation, water source as well as cost factors. Physical groundwater remediation methods include pump-and-treat, air sparging, and dual-phase extraction; biological means are those such as bioventing, bioslurping, and phytoremediation (plant-based solutions); while chemical processes available consist of techniques like ozone and oxygen gas injection, carbon absorption, membrane separation or electrokinetic methods that initiate osmosis or ion exchange.
