Lucius, page Investigating the potential for colloid- and organic matter-facilitated transport of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in crude oil-contaminated ground water by J.N. Ryan, G.R. Aiken, D.A. Backhus, K.G. Villholth, and C.M. Hawley, page Remediation is the process of cleaning up pollution in the soil, water or air. The pollution can result from an accidental spill or from activities that occur over a long time. The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency is involved in remediation activities through various programs listed below. For more information about the MPCA and its work in. Geoffrey N.

By Gary P. Curtis, Isabelle M. Cozzarelli, Mary Jo Baedecker, and Barbara A Bekins. The National Crude Oil Spill Research Site dates back towhen a dramatic pipeline rupture relea barrels of crude petroleum to the land surface and shallow Minnesota.

Inresearch began at the site through the support of the U. Geological Survey’s (USGS) Toxic Substances Hydrology Program. The investigation at the Bemidji site has involved the collection and analysis of crude oil, water, soil, vapor, and sediment samples. The oil phase that occurs as floating product on the water table and as residuum on sediment grains provides a continuing source of hydrocarbons to the ground water and vapor Size: KB.

In August an oil pipeline burst near Bemidji, Minnesota, spilling approximatelygallons of crude oil into the surrounding ground water and soil. In researchers from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) began monitoring the site carefully to determine the crude oil's fate.

The fate of hydrocarbons in the subsurface near Bemidji, Minnesota, has been investigated by a multidisciplinary group of scientists for over a quarter century. Research at Bemidji has involved extensive investigations of multiphase flow and transport, volatilization, dissolution, geochemical interactions, microbial populations, and biodegradation with the goal of providing an improved.

The document provides utility managers and operators, regulators and technical specialists with guidance for preventing contamination and alternatives for treating public ground-water supplies that are contaminated.

Ground-water contamination by crude oil, and other petroleum-based liquids, is a widespread problem. An average of 83 crude-oil spills occurred per year during in the United States, each spilling ab barrels of crude oil (U.S.

Office of Pipeline Safety, electronic commun., ). An understanding of the fate of organic contaminants (such as oil and gasoline) in the subsurface. Fully-coupled multicomponent reactive solute transport simulations were preformed for the groundwater contamination at the Bemidji, MN crude oil spill site.

The simulations included the oxidation of the dissolved crude oil constituents by microorganisms using four different terminal electron acceptors: O2, MnO2, Fe(OH)3 and CO2. The focus of this project will be a site investigation of a nationally famous oil-contamination site northwest of Bemidji, Minnesota.

Ina crude-oil pipeline burst, spilling approximat barrels of hydrocarbon contaminants onto a glacial outwash deposit.
