2012 NGWA Ground Water Summit: Innovate and Integrate

Groundwater Research in the Electric Power Industry

Monday, May 7, 2012: 2:50 p.m.-3:50 p.m.
Terrace Room D-F (Hyatt Regency Orange County)
The electric power industry conducts research on several facets of groundwater quality and supply. This includes groundwater quality associated with coal combustion product disposal and use, former manufactured gas plants, transmission and distribution corridors, and nuclear power plants. Constituents of interest include a wide range of inorganic and organic compounds, DNAPLs, and radionuclides. Research focuses on potential risk, groundwater assessments, release mitigation, and remediation. Groundwater supply research is focused on sustainable water use in light of increasing demand, decreasing supply, and climate change.
