  • Estimating the ratio of pond size to irrigated soybean land in Mississippi: a case study

    Although more on-farm storage ponds have been constructed in recent years to mitigate groundwater resources depletion in Mississippi, little effort has been devoted to estimating the ratio of on-farm water storage pond size to irrigated crop land based on pond metrics and its hydrogeological conditions. In this study, two simulation scenarios were chosen to determine such a ratio as well as to ...

  • Taenia eggs in a stabilization pond system with poor hydraulics: concern for human cysticercosis?

    The objective of this study is to compare the removal of Taenia eggs to the removal of Ascaris eggs in a wastewater stabilization pond system consisting of three ponds in series, where the hydraulic residence time distribution has been characterized via a tracer study supported by computational fluid dynamics modeling. Despite a theoretical hydraulic retention time of 30 ...

  • A farm irrigation pond contaminated with diesel case study

    Due to a broken supply line a Yorkshire farm had a diesel oil spillage of approximately 1300 litres which contaminated the adjacent soil and the farm irrigation lagoon. Scientific Environmental Technologies (SET) were commissioned by the loss adjusters to bioremediate the contaminated site. SET chose Amnite P100 hydrocarbon degrading bacteria as the biological agent to break down the diesel oil. ...

  • Effect of arsenic on soil, plant and foodstuffs by using irrigated groundwater and pond water from Nadia district, West Bengal

    The total arsenic withdrawn by the seven shallow tubewells used for agricultural irrigation in the arsenic-affected areas of Nadia district per year is 3851 g (mean: 550 g, range: 118?2410 g). When the amount of arsenic in the groundwater is high, it has been observed that the levels of arsenic in agricultural land soil and plants are correspondingly high. Arsenic concentration in paddy field ...

  • Treating Winery Wastewater Without Ponds

    Wineries traditionally treat their wine process wastewater with aerobic (aerated) ponds to biologically degrade the biochemical oxygen demand (BOD). The treated wastewater from these ponds needs to have a BOD of 40 ppm or less (depending on the location of the winery) before the winery can discharge the water to the vineyards for irrigation. The discharge level of 40 ppm as well as the ...
