Stop Adani Robbing Our Water
The scale of Adani’s mine, and the other nine mines proposed for the Galilee Basin, will have enormous and irreversible impacts on Queensland’s groundwater resources and risk the pollution of local rivers. Sign here: http://www.lockthegate.org.au/stop_adani_wrecking_our_water Adani’s mine will extract up to 9.5 billions of litres of groundwater each year, causing irreversible damage to groundwater systems and producing a permanent drop in the water table around the mine site*(1). The mining company has been granted a licence to take this water that will last for 60 years and gives them the right to take unlimited volumes, without any independent review process. Adani’s mine will drain water from the rare Doongmabulla and Mellaluka springs - both ecologically significant, being over one million years old and supporting native flora and fauna. Adani will not be charged a cent for the water they will consume, while the Queensland government has stripped farmers of their rights to appeal against Adani taking their groundwater. Billions of litres of our precious water will be sucked from groundwater systems and Queensland’s inland rivers over the life of Adani’s mine. Groundwater systems will be permanently changed and the water table will drop, robbing local farmers and potentially draining water from important spring systems. Ultimately our precious groundwater that has taken millions of years to accumulate will either evaporate or sit in polluted pools around the mine sites, squandered on a mine that we do not need and stolen from long term industries like agriculture. The mine also puts our river systems and downstream farmers who rely on river flows at risk. The mine will extract up to 12,000 million litres of water a year from Queensland waterways, diverting water away from creeks and rivers over the life of the mine*(2). This water will be sprayed onto the mine to try contain billowing clouds of coal dust this project will generate. It will also be used to wash the coal in preparation for export. *(1)Calculated based on 26ML/day inflows into open cut and underground mines in year 2029.

Copper Mining Damaging Major River in Jiangxi Province
For more news and videos visit ➡ ‪http://english.ntdtv.com‬ Follow us on Twitter ➡ ‪http://twitter.com/NTDTelevision‬ Add us on Facebook ➡ ‪http://on.fb.me/s5KV2C‬ The mining industry in China has taken off since the 1970s, but regulations to protect the environment and residents from mining pollution have not kept pace. In eastern Jiangxi province, decades of copper mining is taking a toll on a major river that provides water for more than 400,000 people. China's largest copper producer is being blamed for water pollution that's affecting hundreds of thousands of people in eastern Jiangxi province. Residents there say wastewater from mining activities is flowing into a major river, contaminating farmlands, and damaging the health of locals. The Le'an River provides drinking water and irrigation for 420,000 people in Leping City. It also feeds into China's largest freshwater lake. Locals say mines owned by Jiangxi Copper Group have been pumping industrial waste into the once pristine river, severely damaging the environment. [Mr. Liu, Leping City Resident]: "We used to drink well water, but now pollutants from the river are seeping into the wells. The situation has worsened in recent years. The river used to be clear, and had fish in it. Now there are no fish. There are no plants growing along the banks of the river." The Leping city government reported in 2010 that pollution from copper mining has made more than 700 acres of farmland infertile in just one village. Another resident, also named Mr. Liu, says the pollution is also causing locals to develop cancer, but authorities have done little to address the problem. [Mr. Liu, Leping City Resident]: "The Dexing mine is producing waste and has contaminated villages along the river. Authorities have opened the doors to plants that are heavy polluters because they want to increase GDP. I have friends and family who died of cancer, including my father and two uncles. It's really heartbreaking." For all the damage it's done, the Jiangxi Copper Group has paid 180,000 yuan (around $28,000) in compensation to Leping residents, according to state-run Xinhua News Agency. That's less than 1 yuan—or 16 pennies—for each resident.

In fact, scientist and engineers have a very creative name for just such a process: internal erosion. If just the right factors come together in the subsurface, some very interesting things can occur, including sinkholes. -Patreon: http://patreon.com/PracticalEngineering -Website: http://practical.engineering Memories by SNDR & Joey Shigrov is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution License Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S1Q2PpM5To8 Tonic and Energy by Elexive is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution License Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U6fBPdu8w9U

Climate change impact on groundwater
It turns out that in Africa, groundwater can persist after climate change as long as the use of ground water for irrigation does not become too common.

‘Slightly radioactive’: Fertilizer plant leaks 215mn gallons of waste into Florida aquifer
A large sinkhole has caused contaminated wastewater to flow into an aquifer in Polk County, Florida in the US. The sinkhole appeared at the Mosaic phosphate fertilizer plant about three weeks ago, and 215 million gallons of water containing sulphate, sodium and gypsum, which contains low levels of radiation have drained into the aquifer since then.

South Africa mines polluting water supply 2011 News
As the sign says this water is not fit for drinking or swimming. Only a solitary gull braves the polluted waters. But the problem isn t confined to the waters of the lake. When it rains here in Tudor Shaft a Johannesburg township named after the nearby mine shaft the streets pool with orange water that smells of vinegar. It s seeping from abandoned mines. Locals say the water is contaminated with radioactive minerals used in the mining process and has wiped out all aquatic life in a nearby river. Increasingly South Africans are worried about the risks contaminated water from mining poses to the rest of Johannesburg built over one of the largest gold mining bases in the world. The environmental cost of South Africa s lucrative export is weighing on impoverished communities many sitting on abandoned mines on the outskirts of the city. And wealthy mining companies have shown little inclination to take responsibility. A man stirs lunch - cornmeal porridge - in an immaculate shack. The small front yard is lined with pebbles covering the soil. Outside in the yard children run barefoot their feet tinted orange. 35-year-old Patrick Mkoyo says his children sometimes come home with rashes or difficulty breathing. They are not OK here but I don t have a choice I have no other place to stay he says. I m worried about my children. He says his doctors say they don t know what is causing the medical problems. In December Professor Chris Busby from Ireland s University of Ulster tested the soil around Mkoyo s shack and found it contained at least 32 times the amount of government-set acceptable radioactivity levels. Busby prepared the report for Johannesburg-based Federation for Sustainable Environment a private group working to bring the toxic water issue to the attention of the government and its citizens. The dangerous mining residue reaches people in two steps To reach the precious minerals at the bottom of a mining basin - a bowl containing water and minerals - miners pump out the water. Gold is then extracted and the remaining rock which contains traces of uranium is dumped onto waste piles. Over time the uranium reacts with oxygen from the atmosphere and this radioactive substance builds according to mineral geochemistry professors at Johannesburg s University of Witwatersrand. Once mining is finished rainwater accumulates in abandoned mine dumps eventually causing mining basins - huge bowls in the earth containing water and minerals - to overflow flushing the uranium and other substances into the ground and river systems. One mining basin in western Johannesburg has already flooded and one of the next basins to flood experts say will be under Johannesburg s city centre. Toxic mine water is entering rivers and communities at an increasing rate particularly with heavy rain in recent months and its consequences are devastating says Mariette Liefferink chief executive of the Federation for Sustainable Environment.

Already there are close to 50,000 abandoned mines across Australia - if we don’t act now more and more companies will go bankrupt, close mines and walk away. The most serious problem is water: new research shows we are 40 years behind the US, allowing unfilled pits to remain after mining which drain surrounding water resources and leach toxins and salts into our soil and waterways. Modern coal mines have pits that may extend 150 metres or more below the natural water table, draining precious groundwater. For example the final pit left behind at the Liddell mine, NSW, is expected to drain 57 million litres of groundwater per day!

Plastic bottles & Deep State water agenda | The Unavoidable Water Crisis  [Part 2/2] 2018
Water is life. Water is power. Water has become the new oil. [Part one here: http://bit.ly/WaterCrisis1 Sadly, it’s becoming an increasingly scarce resource across the globe through overuse and pollution? But who really controls the water we drink? Also what about the bottled water we drink, is it safer than tap water or is it really a money making conspiracy draining small American towns of its own water supply. A deep dive into the planet’s water situation reveals that in the coming decades, every country, including the United States, will have to determine how to treat water as an economic good, a human right, and a depleting resource. As these issues become more acute, tensions have already begun to escalate but who is really behind this?

Land subsidence Mekong Delta
In only 25 years, the Mekong Delta has been transformed from a stable area into a rapidly-subsiding delta. Using a new three-dimensional groundwater model of the entire delta, researchers from Utrecht University and Deltares have shown by how much and where the land is subsiding due to groundwater extraction. The study shows that Vietnam is pumping itself down faster and faster. The rate of subsidence has now reached several centimetres a year, which is a lot higher than the global sea-level rise of a few millimetres a year. That is alarming news for the delta, which is only 1-2 metres above sea level. Salinisation, higher floods risks and coastal erosion are genuine threats. Unless action is taken, this fertile area – which is home to 20 million people and which produces food for almost 200 million others – faces a major catastrophe. The researchers have published 'Impacts of 25 years of groundwater extraction on subsidence in the Mekong Delta, Vietnam', identifying groundwater extraction as a major cause of land subsidence in the Mekong Delta.

According to Bangladesh Agricultural Development Corporation (BADC).80 percent of irrigation water and 98 percent of drinking water is collected from underground sources. Dr. Eftekharul Alam, said (Agriculture, Water and Environment Engineer of Bangladesh Agricultural Development Corporation -BADC.) Water table of groundwater is declining rapidly due to its excessive use for irrigation in agriculture sector, which causes salinity water intrusion, posing a serious thereat to the ecosystem and biodiversity of the southern part of the country. On the other hand according to Dhaka Water Supply and Sewerage Authority (WASA), its total water production of 87 percent is groundwater and 12 percent is surface water. Managing director of Wasa mr, Taksim a Khan said , some of area of Dhaka city is now under treat of water mining. Dr. Eftekharul Alam said "Over mining of groundwater of Dhaka city and Gazipur (a district beside the capital) regions have accelerated the speed of these intrusions.

How secant piles control groundwater - Murray Combined Sewer Overflow Control project
Learn how King County Wastewater Treatment Division creates safe underground work environments using a construction technique called secant piles. At the Murray Combined Sewer Overflow Control project in West Seattle, King County used interlocking concrete cylinders called secant piles to create a watertight ring. The ring kept groundwater out while the inside of the ring was excavated, which protected nearby homes, streets and utilities from settlement. King County’s Murray CSO Control project is building a 1 million tank to keep sewage and stormwater out of polluted Puget Sound.

Special Report - Goa: A Lost Paradise
In our Special Report this week, we take you to the land of sun, sand and sea i.e. Goa. After tourism, Iron Ore mining is the biggest economic driver of the state. However, indiscriminate mining of iron ore, especially between the years 2000 and 2008, has devastated the state's environment and ecology. Groundwater in the aquifers and wells has completely dried up while paddy cultivation has been majorly impacted. Lives of people around the mining areas is no better. Most of the people are still suffering from the fallout of air and noise pollution. The Supreme Court banned iron ore mining in Goa in October 2012. While this was rejoiced by environmentalists, the flip side is that thousands of people associated with the mining sector are now jobless. Workers, Miners, Barge owners, Truckers, and many others have nowhere to go. For them life has come to a standstill because they have no other option. A six member panel is going to submit its report by February 2014 and all eyes now will be on how the government would try to strike a balance between the economic and the environmental needs.

Blowing Up Mountains: Destroying the Environment for Coal
Massive corporations are blowing up mountains and creating environmental ruins in West Virginia. All this devastation, just to extract some coal. We went to West Virginia to investigate mountain-top removal -- which a way of extracting coal from deposits under mountains. Instead of drilling into the mountain and sending men underground to take out the coal in the traditional way, they just take the whole top of a mountain off.

CAPITOL REPORT: Balancing Mining and Environmental Interests
The Minnesota Dept. of Natural Resources will face growing challenges balancing the protection of Minnesota's resources with the desire for economic growth. Southeastern Minnesota provides the greatest opportunity for silica sand mining, and DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr talks with Julie about steps the agency is taking to secure the proper balance. Senator Matt Schmit, DFL-Red Wing, sponsored legislation during the 2013 legislative session that would have imposed a state moratorium on future silica sand mining in Minnesota. In the end, local government's could extend moratoriums for two years, and state agencies were charged with overseeing mining permits. He joins Julie to review the legislation and offer his views on the future of silica sand mining and its impact on Minnesota resources and industry. In other State Capitol action, the state is creating an online website, to be operational October 1st, 2013, that will aid in the search and purchase of health insurance. Minnesota Management and Budget Commissioner James Schowalter provides several answers about the future workings of Minnesota's health exchange, known as MNsure. Finally, highlights of action this week by the State Capitol Preservation Committee that endorse the first major interior renovation of the State Capitol.

TATA,CCL Choke Jharkhand Villages
About the Video: Nestled between the blackened pits of the TATA and CCL coal mines, the community of Ramgarh district in the state of Jharkhand has been left without access to basic drinking water. Before the mining companies came in, water was accessed by digging a mere 6-8 feet below the ground but now the deepest wells, about three to five times the depth, are running on empty. Continuous mining has dried out the traditional community wells. While the groundwater is being spirited away, rain water has no chance to replenish the falling water table. The rains collect and stagnate with the pollutants in the mining pits. When the mines were planned, the mining companies had promised clean drinking water to the community and for a while it seemed that they would live up to the promises. New wells were constructed. Hand pumps were installed. Regular tankers of water were sent to the villages. Then one day, the tankers stopped coming. The wells dried up and the hand pumps had no more water to yield. The nearby agricultural land began to lose its fertility. Farmers lost their livelihoods. The nearest source of clean water was over two kilometres away. With few options, the community began to use the water in collected in the pits and their health took a toll. They were plagued with skin rashes and allergies. Lacking options, they took their problems to the gates of the mining companies and reminded them of their promises. They were given an application form. The application once completed would be processed by the companies. Depending on if they feel that the situation as presented in the application is grave/important enough, a tanker may/may not be sent. The Issue: The vision of modern India has come at a heavy price and the Damodar River Valley in the state of Jharkhand has been one of the unwilling victims who have paid the toll for progress. The abundant water once supported diverse flora and fauna and the lives and livelihoods of the tribal, fishing and agricultural communities living along its fertile banks. Once a year, the abundance spilled over causing flooding and devastation. Even if these events earned the river the unfortunate moniker of 'river of sorrow', it was a cyclic event that the communities had learned to cope with. In 1984, the Government of India introduced the Damodar Valley Project to control the flooding by using the water to generate hydro and thermal power. Industrialization came to valley promising a better future with no floods and electricity for all. A little over 25 years have passed and it has now become one of the most polluted river basins in the world. The Damodar river flows across some of the most mineral rich parts of the country -- the Chota Nagpur plateau with its reserves of mica, bauxite, copper, iron ore, lime stone and coal. It had the raw materials that laid the foundation of India's industrial revolution. The majority of the coal consumed in the country is mined from the region. The land has become the base for hundreds of industrial units. With mines, washeries, furnaces and the infrastructure, coal spawned an industry of its own. Setting up a coal mine destroys the immediate landscape. There is large scale deforestation and the quality of the land and soil is irreparably affected. The mine renders it unfit for any other purpose. The altering of land depletes the ground water. Dust and coal particles released in the mining and processing of the coal pollutes the air. They are a health hazard known to cause severe respiratory ailments. The gases that emanate from the mines are greenhouse gases that contribute towards global warming. The toxic drainage and loose soil not only pollutes the nearby sources of water but also finds its way to the ground water reserves damaging the quality of water. The effects of mining are long-standing. Even if the mine is shut and abandoned, the land is forever damaged. Chances of recovery are nil. The 'river of sorrow' had turned to sludge.

earthrise - Water: Save every drop
Estimates say that by 2030, if we carry on as we are, the world will only have 60 percent of the water it needs. In India's Ladakh, rising temperatures are leading to glacial melt and water shortages in the mountains of the Himalayas. The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan is also sturggling as it experiences severe drought. earthrise travelled to both Ladakh and Jordan to understand the local solutions being applied to help ease the increasingly worrying water problems. Ladakh's Ice Stupas All life depends on snow in Ladakh, with the high-altitude desert region receiving only 50mm of rainfall a year. Agriculture and survival depends mainly on the water that comes from snow and glacial melt, but with rising temperatures and changing weather patterns, most villages in the area are experiencing severe water shortage. Since 1980, the average temperature has increased by over 2 degrees with huge impact on the local environment. The glaciated area in Ladakh has been lost, meaning that glaciers are much smaller and in some areas have disappeared altogether. Sonam Wangchuck has been on a mission to help villagers adapt to the changing climate through his ice stupa concept. The ice stupa builds upon a simple idea - by directing glacial melt or water traveling downstream through a pipe to a location nearby. This water is then channelled vertically, freezing and forming cone like structures in temperatures reaching minus 20 degrees celcius. Russell Beard travels to Ladakh to join Wangchuck in building an ice stupa and explores how this innovative solution is helping the local community. Water Wise Women Jordan is going through a severe drought. Pressure on water supplies is being aggravated by the presence of two million refugees who have fled the conflict in neighbouring Syria. Groundwater reserves are being depleted at an alarming rate and, on top of that, around 40 percent of the water distributed to homes across the country is lost through illegal wells and faulty pipes. Through the Water Wise Women's initiative, local ladies are being trained to be plumbers. They are now able to deal themselves with any leakages in their own homes and communities, thereby saving water in a more timely manner. Amani Zain visited Jordan to learn about the water initiative that is putting women at the heart of efforts to combat water scarcity. - Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.io/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: http://www.aljazeera.com/
