Subject injection well wastewater disposal clogging groundwater field tests filtration carbonates Hawaii nitrogen gas binding Groundwater -- Hawaii. Injection wells -- Hawaii. Sewage disposal in the ground -- Hawaii. Water quality -- Hawaii.
Description Wastewater disposal into injection wells almost inevitably results in aquifer clogging and reduced injection capacity. In Hawaii, clogging has produced well overflows resulting in numerous public health, legal, and financial problems. Near-well processes, their relationship to clogging, and technology appropriate under Hawaiian hydrogeologic conditions for dealing with clogging were examined in this study. The first phase involved monitoring of functioning injection well systems on Oahu and...
