Your drinking water well requires regular maintenance, just like any other system in your home. Regular inspection and some simple steps will help safeguard your water supply.
A researcher has drawn a link between the impact of climate change and untreated drinking water on the rate of gastrointestinal illness in children.
Research could help determine how BPA affects male and female brains
You've seen Bear Grylls turn foul water into drinking water with little more than sunlight and plastic. Now, academics have added a third element -- carbon-dipped paper -- that may turn this survival tactic into a highly efficient and inexpensive way to turn saltwater and contaminated water into potable water for personal use.
In celebration of National Drinking Water Week, Penn State Extension and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection along with numerous other sponsors invite you to attend the 2017 Pennsylvania Groundwater Symposium at the Ramada Inn Conference Center in State College, PA.
Hydrilla is a submerged aquatic weed of concern in Pennsylvania. This plant is a perennial that grows rapidly, covering the surface of the water, restricting boating, fishing and swimming among other recreational uses.
Changes in climate can rapidly impact even the deepest freshwater aquifers according to hydrologists. The researchers found that responses to climate variations can be detected in deep groundwater aquifers faster than expected -- in many cases within a year.
What differences are there between water sources? Just because water looks clear, does that make it safe to drink? What are total dissolved solids?
A recent review of studies of submarine canyons has identified that they are at risk from human activities, and require better protection.
Following a meeting today of the Commonwealth Drought Task Force, the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) announced that two counties remain in drought warning status. Six improve from warning to watch status, and 11 improve from watch to normal status.
Govenor Tom Wolf Tuesday proposed a $32.3 billion General Fund budget which he said includes $2 billion in cuts and savings resulting from reinventing and reforming the way the public’s money is spent and $1 billion in new taxes, mostly on business.
Researchers have found engineered floating wetlands show promise for water treatment.
Do you have a stream on your property that is eroding away, and taking your property with it?
As urbanization and development continue to occur, resulting issues with stormwater have been an increasing water resources issue.
The Pennsylvania Master Watershed Stewards participated in the 2017 PA Farm Show.
Accidental introductions of non-native species has been of increasing concern since the 1980s when human-mediated transportation, mainly related to ships' ballast water, was recognised as a major route by which species are transported and spread.
Non-indigenous species are harming indigenous species and habitats in the Mediterranean Sea, impairing potentially exploitable marine resources and raising concern about human health issues, according to a new study.
The incidence of particular skin and liver tumors on white suckers collected from some Wisconsin rivers corresponded to the degree of urban development within the watershed. Further research is needed to understand the relationship between exposure to urban-sourced contaminants and the initiation, promotion, and potential for population-level effects of these tumors.
The new Chesapeake Bay Landscape Professional (CBLP) certification program relies on several publications and resources to help landscape professionals learn all they can about sustainable landscaping practices before taking a final exam.
As a result of the globalization of trade and transport, in the past decades, tens of thousands of species have spread into regions where they were not originally at home. Potentially serious consequences of this include the displacement or extinction of native species and the spread of health risks. Even though trade flows are known to represent an important path for the introduction of invasive species, this fact alone is not enough to explain the observed distribution patterns of species.
