    1.1 AQUIFER PAREMETER ESTIMATION The transmissivity and storativity was estimated using the Cooper-Jacob (1965) time-drawdown and Theis (1935) recovery methods. The field data was uploaded into the FC program for Aquifer Test Analysis (2014 version) which calculated the values for each method manually. 1.1.1 COOPER-JACOB TIME-DRAWDOWN (1965) Using the Cooper-Jacob method the T and S value had been estimated for early and late time, respectively, by plotting the best fitted straight line on the

    capacity to receive injected produced water from oil and gas production and the possibility of fluid migration. The migration of fluids refers to the produced water from oil and gas that can pose a threat for contamination in the area studied. This aquifer is located in the Uintah Basin of the Colorado Plateau. The Birds Nest is also located in the Green River formation. “The Green River Formation of Wyoming, Colorado and Utah contains an important record of the paleogeography, climate and lakes in

  • What Are The Best Preventative Measures And Most Effective Treatments?

    radioactive wastes in to underground aquifers is of grave concern and lads to dire consequences for people, plants and animals. What are the best preventative measures and most effective treatments? Consider specific cases. Treatment and Prevention of Underground Water Pollution Ground water forms a large percent of all the used water on the earth. And as it cannot be seen, it is usually overlooked or ignore when considering all the water on the earth. Since aquifer is valuable source, protecting it

    Extraction Establishment of Managed Aquifer recover (MAR) System 1. Introduction 2.1. Managed Aquifer Recovery Systems As reported by the South Australian local government of Charles Sturt (2012), Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASR) or Managed Aquifer Recharge (MAR) is essentially the deliberate storage of surface water (i.e. in the form of stormwater, treated effluent etc) within aquifers. This process is used where water is pumped into aquifers for future usage. Furthermore, MAR systems

  • Review of Article on Arsenic Crisis in Bangladesh

    541 Words  | 2 Pages

    Summary: The people of Bangladesh were dying and getting ill from water. This water was provided through tube wells that were connected to an underground aquifer. Such actions were taken on the 1980’s, when many children died from diarrhea. This project facilitated the lives of many since their people did not have to walk long distances and carry heavy jars full of water. Unfortunately, the water was not checked for arsenic. A dermatologist believed the water from the tube wells contained arsenic

  • Source Water Identification in Alluvial Aquifers along the Ohio River with Reference to Hydrogeology, Geochemistry, Stable Isotope and Numerical Model

    numerical analysis of source-water dynamics of stream-bounded alluvial aquifers, along the Ohio River in northern panhandle of West Virginia, with consideration of lateral infiltration of groundwater from bedrock aquifer. However, the author did not verify her model to the field data. On the other hand, Kozar and McCoy (2004) presented groundwater-surface water interaction and simulation of groundwater flow in the alluvial aquifers from the northern panhandle of West Virginia without considering recharge

  • The Keystone XL Pipeline Negatively Impacts the Environment and the People in It

    760 Words  | 4 Pages

    for leakage could be high, damaging the ecosystems surrounding the pipeline; therefore, the Keystone XL shouldn’t be encouraged. The Keystone XL pipeline negatively impacts the environment by potentially leaking oil, being too close to important aquifers, and not being regulated properly, this is why the Keystone XL pipeline shouldn’t be encouraged. The Keystone XL pipeline also shouldn’t be encouraged because the Keystone XL causes pollution. Firstly, the Keystone XL could cause pollution because

  • Water Is A Vital Resource For Human Development

    1019 Words  | 5 Pages

    Water is a vital resource for human development; its natural mode of occurrence is governed by climatic, geomorphic and geologic characteristics of the land surface. Water resources is a major requirement and driver of socio-economic development. Economic sectors that water caters to include domestic, agriculture and fisheries, industry, recreation, municipality, including waste/effluent disposal, and water transportation. It also plays a prominent role in power and energy generation (Oyebande.,

  • Gravity Recovery And Climate Experiment

    1727 Words  | 7 Pages

    Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) and climatic model (CLM 4.5) outputs were conducted over the southern part of the Nubian Sandstone Aquifer System (NSAS) (area: 835 × 103 km2) in Sudan and Chad to estimate the natural recharge rate. The Nubian Sandstone Aquifer System (NSAS) is shared by Egypt, Libya, Chad, and Sudan, and is one of the largest (area: ~ 2 × 106 km2) groundwater systems in the world. Findings from the study include: (1) average annual precipitation was estimated at 77

  • The Current Rate Of Groundwater Recharge

    1246 Words  | 5 Pages

    recharge [1] is essential for efficient groundwater resource management in arid and semi-arid zones, and is often the key to economic development. Moreover, it represents an essential component in the understanding of hydrogeologic settings for the aquifers. Many studies have been proposed to assess recharge with physical and chemical techniques, as well as with modeling [2-5]. These methods, however, are difficult to apply to regional scale studies, and may have a low confidence of model parameters
