  • Publisher Summary This chapter presents a study in which contaminated water flowing from a uranium mill tailings repository near Durango, Colorado, was collected in a drain and piped to a system of permeable reactive barriers (PRBs). The PRBs were constructed in two configurations, leach fields and baffled tanks and ZVI was used in three forms, foam plates, granular, and steel wool. All three forms of ZVI produced chemically reducing conditions and removed most contaminants [arsenic (As… CONTINUE READING
