      RESULTS OF GEOPHYSICAL SURVEYS OF GLACIAL DEPOSITS NEAR A FORMER WASTE-DISPOSAL SITE, NASHUA, NEW HAMPSHIRE By Joseph D. Ayotte and Tracy H. Dorgan Abstract Geophysical investigations were done near a former waste-disposal site in Nashua, New Hamp- shire, to determine the thickness and infer hydrau- lic characteristics of the glacial sediments that underlie the . Marland Pratt Billings (Ma – October 9, ) was an American structural geologist who was considered one of the greatest authorities on North American geology. [citation needed] Billings was Professor of Geology at Harvard University for almost his entire career, having joined the faculty in and retired to emeritus status in He also taught for a brief time at Bryn Mawr.

Bedrock wells are drilled below the topsoil and groundwater into bedrock, tapping the cracks in the rock that carry water deep underground.

The average bedrock well in New Hampshire is between feet and feet deep, but drilling depth can go up to 1, : Brandi Coulter. In New Hampshire, water from the bedrock aquifer has greater concentrations of iron than does water from stratified-drift aquifers.

The median concentration of iron in water from bedrock wells is an order of magnitude greater ( µg/L) than the reported median (10 µg/L) in. 2 Factors Related to Well Yield in the Fractured-Bedrock Aquifer of New Hampshire related to well yields include sites underlain Bedrock water wells in New Hampshire book foliated plutons, sites on steep slopes sites at high elevations, and sites on hilltops.

Additionally, seven detailed geologic map units, identified during the detailed geologic mapping of. Groundwater Wells There's a good chance that the average Joe who had to dig a well in ancient Egypt probably did the work with his hands, a shovel, and a bucket. He would have kept digging until he reached the water table, where all the spaces between the rock and dirt particles are filled with water, and water filled the bottom of the hole.

In a study of bedrock ground-water quality in New Hampshire, fluoride was significantly greater in w ells completed in felsic igne ous rocks, such as th e Wi nnipesaukee Tonalite, than in other.

In fact, one in five New Hampshire homeowners with Arsenic in drinking water is common in NH due to the large number of private wells. Learn about Secondwind's guaranteed arsenic removal treatment systems. The Handbook of Suggested Practices for the Design and Installation of Ground-Water Monitoring Wells is intended to assist personnel involved with the design, construction, and installation of ground-water monitoring wells.

This document does not focus on specific regulatory requirements, but instead presents. The study Bedrock water wells in New Hampshire book is in the northeastern United States within southeastern New Bedrock water wells in New Hampshire book area is nested within the U.S.

Tiedeman, Daniel J. Goode. In New Hampshire, nearly half of the state's population depends on a domestic well water supply, where at least 75 percent comes from drilled bedrock wells and the rest from shallow glacial aquifer wells (U.S.

Census Bureau ).Cited by: 4. Background to New Rules • Rules expire every 8 years • This rule making process began several years ago and was finalized in January • Well Siting Committee- worked to coordinate rules between the Water Well Board Bedrock water wells in New Hampshire book the Subsurface Systems Bureau (starting in ) • New published rule book.

Researchers analyzed private bedrock wells in area cities and towns and found that 13% exceeded the Federal Drinking Water Standards for arsenic.

Because private wells are not subject to the same regulatory practice as municipal water supplies, if you receive your water from a private Bedrock water wells in New Hampshire book and live in central or Northeastern Author: Derek Skillings. Three wells in New Hampshire were sampled bimonthly over three years to evaluate the temporal variability of arsenic concentrations and groundwater age.

All samples had measurable concentrations of arsenic throughout the entire sampling period and concentrations in individual wells had a mean variation of more than 7 μg/ by: 5. Get this from a library.

The ground-water-flow system in the fractured bedrock is complex and is affected by the size, orientation, and connectivity of the fractures. Water levels have been measured in a number of monitor wells since   The arsenic-based water is disposed to the home septic system, while the treated water is stored in a small pressure tank, and dispensed at the dedicated tap.

Adsorptive Media consists of a granular material through which water passes. Substances in the water “stick” to the surface of the media by adsorption, and treated water passes through.

Specifically in southeastern New Hampshire, Montgomery and others () established that nearly one-fifth of private bedrock wells had arsenic concentrations that exceed the U.S.

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) maximum contamination level for public water supplies. Two wells drilled in coastal New Hampshire were sited to intersect.

Each of the three water sources at Eastman, for example, will produce over gallons per minute and supply the neededgallons per day for the Eastman Community. The two most common types of wells in New England are sand and gravel wells and bedrock wells. In the first case, you dig to tap an extensive layer of water-laden sand or gravel.

Northwest York County is Silurian-Devonian bedrock, with marine slate sandstone and slate in the east, grading to schist closer to New Hampshire. A small area of igneous syenite intrusions is also found in York County on the coast, northeast of Kittery.

Things To Consider When Buying A Home With A Well Buyers considering homes in rural settings will often encounter homes for sale that get their water from wells. With homes drawing on municipal sources, there is an assumption that the water in the home will be readily available and meet the safety standards of the municipality.

Protecting Drinking Water. Residents in the Nashua River watershed receive their drinking water from either public municipal water systems where the water supply is derived either from reservoirs or well fields, or, from private wells, which can be either shallow (less than feet) or deep bedrock wells.

Bob Scott, commissioner of New Hampshire’s Department of Environmental Services, estimates t New Hampshire residents may be at risk by drinking water from untested bedrock wells, in line with numbers from an independent report by the U.S.

Geological Survey that estimates the high-arsenic domestic well population for the entire U.S. The water in any New Hampshire well, therefore, will be pumped out of the ground at about 50 degrees, winter or summer. Any liquid pumped into the ground will warm or cool to 50 : Bernard Avishai.

The New Hampshire Birth Cohort Study enrolls pregnant women who use private wells and then follows them through pregnancy and delivery and then continues to follow the children as they grow and develop.

Sinceover 1, committed mothers have enrolled in the study throughout New Hampshire. 1 Introduction. Bedrock is either exposed at the earth surface or buried under soil and regolith, sometimes over a thousand meters deep.

Understanding the global pattern of underground boundaries such as groundwater and bedrock occurrence is of continuous interest to Earth and geosciences [Schenk and Jackson, ; Fan et al., ].In land surface modeling, depth to bedrock Cited by: The study objectives include assembling new arsenic data generated by the New Hampshire Environmental Health Tracking Program; development of an updated predictive model for arsenic in bedrock wells; and assessing the feasibility of applying this model to other contaminants as part of a proposed New Hampshire Atlas of drinking-water well.

water samples were collected from streams, springs, and wells and were analyzed for uranium and 12 other elements. sediment samples, taken from streams and springs, were analyzed for uranium, thorium, and 41 other elements.

Uranium concentrations of water samples range from below the detection limit of ppB to ppB. A new study has found that drinking water from private wells, particularly dug wells established during the first half of the 20th century, may have contributed to the elevated risk of bladder cancer that has been observed in Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont for over 50 years.
