Title: Ground water remediation powered with renewable energy

Can renewable energy sources be used to power a ground water remediation technology

This project will determine if ground water can be cleaned up using renewable solar or wind energy. Students are using submersible water pumps in combination with a vessel containing iron that removes the contaminants and permits treated ground water to recharge directly back to the aquifer. The final objective for the class will be to construct a model of the system and assess the mass removal rate and zone of treatment based on intermittent pumping.
