This is one of a series of reports that presents the findings of the Plains Hydrology and Reclamation Project (PHRP), an interdisciplinary study that focuses primarily on hydrologic aspects of reclamation of surface coal mines in the plains of Alberta. This research has been conducted by the...
A Summary of Land Resource and Groundwater Resource Issues Related to Plains Coal Mine Reclamation in AlbertaDownload
Development and extraction of coal resources in Alberta disrupts the landscape and alters two other important resources, land and groundwater. In order to support coal resource development that was economically and environmentally responsible, the Reclamation Research Technical Advisory Committee...
A laboratory study of long-term effects of mine depressurization groundwater on fish and invertebratesDownload
This study was conducted to determine long-term toxic effects, on selected species of fish and invertebrates, of mine depressurization at concentrations non-lethal in acute toxicity tests. The study also includes chronic toxicity experiments, studies of sublethal effects of groundwater, and a...
Acute lethality of mine depressurization water to trout-perch (Percopsis omiscomaycus) and rainbow trout (Salmo gairdneri) Volume IDownload
Mine depressurization water obtained from five wells on Lease 17 held by Syncrude Canada Limited, was examined for chemical composition and acute toxicity to two species of fish. In the first series of experiments, mine depressurization water was diluted with various proportions of water...
Acute lethality of mine depressurization water to trout-perch (Percopsis omiscomaycus) and rainbow trout (Salmo gairdneri) Volume IIDownload
Volume 2 In order to conduct oil sands mining operations in the surface mining region of the Athabasca oil sands deposits, most regions require depressurization of the basal sandstone formations. The groundwater produced by depressurization operations is of poor enough quality to be toxic to...
Masters thesis. Examines significant aspects of hydrogeology, hydrogeochemistry, and evidence of groundwater flow as basis for understanding groundwater distribution and development in permafrost regions. Engineering considerations on development of groundwater resources and prevention of icings...
Abstract: The objective of this study was to experimentally simulate interactions between liquid manure and soil in diffusion-dominant areas beneath earthen manure storage (EMS). A previous radial diffusion cell method was modified to include an anaerobic chamber that employed a plastic glove bag...
Chemical modification, characterization, and application of chicken feathers as novel biosorbentsDownload
The current work exclusively pertains to preparing arsenic removing biosorbents using chicken feathers (CF) as a raw material. CF consist of keratinous proteins with many functional groups, and this paper contributes to the debate on how functional groups, especially –COOH, –NH2 and –S–S–,...
Hydrotechnical research in the Alberta Oil Sands has been oriented toward establishment of baseline (i.e. pre-development) environmental conditions and identification of contaminant transport mechanisms. Monitoring networks for both groundwaters and surface waters are in place and both water...
