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 ...
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 ...
Biobarrier formation for hydraulic control in groundwater remediation in South Africa
(University of the Free State, 2006-11)
Abstract not available
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 ...
A groundwater-surface water interaction study of an alluvial channel aquifer
(University of the Free State, 2011-11)
The study describes the application complimentary geohydrologic tools to investigate the geohydrological properties of an alluvial channel aquifer and its interaction with the river surface water resources. Primary field ...
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 ...
Risk based decision tool for managing and protecting groundwater resources
(University of the Free State, 2001-11)
English: The limited number of water resources in South Africa has resulted in increased emphasis being placed on groundwater. Groundwater supply of acceptable quality and quantity is a very important factor in the ...
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 ...
