A holistic hydrogeological environmental site risk assessment methodology for the fertilizer industry in South Africa
(University of the Free State, 2013-04)
English: There has been a definitive increase in environmental legislation over the past decade. These new environmental laws established principles such as duty of care and the polluter pay principle. Numerous companies ...
The impacts of fertilizer manufacturing on groundwater in South Africa
(University of the Free State, 2010-11)
English: As a result of the fertilizer industry’s rapid growth, and the increasing global awareness concerning environmental issues, fertilizer production facilities have come under growing pressure to comply with ever ...
A geohydrological assessment of arsenic as a contaminant in the Jagersfontein area and remediation options
(University of the Free State, 2012-12)
English: This thesis aims at geohydrologically assess arsenic in the Jagersfontein area and hence proposing remediation option. The field procedure carried out involved hydrocensus and sampling where samples were collected ...
Investigating the possibility of targeting major dolerite intrusives to supplement municipal water supply in Bloemfontein: a geophysical approach
(University of the Free State, 2017-02)
The city of Bloemfontein is currently relying on surface water sources for its potable water supply. However, Bloemfontein is located in a semi-arid area, which means that the surface water resources are unreliable and ...
Evaluation of the vulnerability of selected aquifer systems in the Eastern Dahomey basin, South Western Nigeria
(University of the Free State, 2015-01)
This study aimed to evaluate the vulnerability of the shallow aquifer systems of the Dahomey Basin and formulate a simple vulnerability method with which data limited areas (which include the shallow unconfined aquifers ...
Hydrogeochemical determination of the salt load from copper mine waste in the Bushveld igneous complex
(University of the Free State, 2008-11-28)
This dissertation characterised geochemically waste from a copper mine in the Bushveld Igneous Complex, coupled with hydrochemical interpretations. In the first part of the dissertation, the methods involved in the ...
Manual on pumping test analysis in fractured rock aquifers
(University of the Free State, 2000-11)
English: With the depletion of surface water resources in South Africa the utilisation of groundwater as the only potable water resource for communities in some rural areas is quickly becoming a reality. Failure of this ...
Aquifer test interpretation with special emphasis on the drawdown evaluation for wells within fracture networks smaller than the representative elementary volume (rev)
(University of the Free State, 2002-05)
Fractured aquifers are characterized by the fact that most of the water flows along fractures, faults, open bedding planes, or other geological features. These features are embedded in a matrix that has either porous ...
Quantification and modelling of heterogeneities in aquifers
(University of the Free State, 2017-01)
English: The future of modelling of heterogeneity in aquifers is definitively in the designing of new in situ testing (hydraulic and mass transport) procedures with new corresponding mathematical models. New trends in ...
