The goal of this research was to provide a tool for regulators to evaluate the groundwater contamination from the use of virgin and secondary materials in road construction. A finite element model, HYDRUS2D, was used to evaluate generic scenarios for secondary material use in base layers. Use of generic model results for particular applications was(More)
This research documents in situ wastewater biofilm formation, structure, and physiochemical properties as revealed by scanning and transmission electron microscopy. Cationized ferritin was used to label anionic sites of the biofilm glycocalyx for viewing in thin section. Wastewater biofilm formation paralleled the processes involved in marine biofilm(More)
Utilization of secondary materials in civil engineering applications (e.g. as substitutes for natural aggregates or binder constituents) requires assessment of the physical and environment properties of the product. Environmental assessment often necessitates evaluation of the potential for constituent release through leaching. Currently most leaching(More)
This manuscript elucidates the mechanisms responsible for aging-induced reduction in lead leaching from scrubber residues. Leaching tests (JLT13) were conducted on 48 types of scrubber residues and lead solubility was found to be significantly reduced independent of incinerator type or type of gas treatment method. Reaction kinetics that result in lead(More)

It has been subjected to the Agency's peer and administrative review and has been approved for publication as an EPA document. Mention(More)
This research documents an effect of reactor turbulence on the ability of gram-negative wastewater biofilm bacteria to actively transport l-aspartate via a binding-protein-mediated transport system. Biofilms which were not preadapted to turbulence and which possessed two separate and distinct aspartate transport systems (systems 1 and 2) were subjected to a(More)
The use of soluble PO4(3-) and lime as a heavy metal chemical stabilization agent was evaluated for mine tailings from Leadville, Colorado. The tailings are from piles associated with the Wolftone and Maid of Erin mines; ore material that was originally mined around 1900, reprocessed in the 1940s, and now requires stabilization. The dominant minerals in the(More)
This paper discusses the modeling of anion and cation leaching from complex matrixes such as weathered steel slag. The novelty of the method is its simultaneous application of the theoretical models for solubility, competitive sorption, and surface precipitation phenomena to a complex system. Selective chemical extractions, pH dependent leaching(More)
This research documents the multiplicity of L-aspartate transport in thin wastewater biofilms. A Line-weaver-Burk analysis of incorporation produced a curvilinear plot (concave down) that suggested active transport by two distinct systems (1 and 2). The inactivation of system 2 with AsO4 or osmotic shock resolved system 1, which was a high-affinity,(More)
