Isle of Wight (UK)
The isle of Wight Council look after the Castlehaven Coastal Protection scheme in the Niton area of the island. They were having trouble with the ground water contamination, possibly from the septic tanks, which was causing iron related bacteria to grow in the ground stabilisation dewatering wells.
Heat Exchangers servicing the EDF Building at Le Defence were found to be clogged with iron oxide residues, affecting the water flow rate and pump efficiency. The system comprises two injection wells, 300mm in diameter and 26m in depth, with two similar extraction wells, filtration and heat exchangers.
A Crystal Clear Solution
Iron oxide residues in groundwater are becoming an increasing problem, estimated to affect about 40% of the world’s water bores, and anecdotal evidence indicates that this number is steadily increasing.
