RANDALL, P. M. Groundwater Modeling Of Mercury Pollution At A Former Mercury Cell Chlor Alkali Facility In Pavoldar, Kazakhstan. Presented at Contaminated Site Management Conference, San Diego, CA, November 16 - 18, 2010.

Impact/Purpose:

To provide methods and results of mathematical simulations of hydrogeological conditions in the northern industrial zone of the Pavlodar City chemical plant.

Description:

In Kazakhstan, there is a serious case of mercury pollution near the city of Pavlodar from an old mercury cell chlor-alkali plant. The soil, sediment, and water is severly contaminated with mercury and mercury compounds as a result of the industrial activity of this chemical plant. Several international organizations such as the EPA and the EU countries have provided technical and financial support to the Kazakhstan government to remedy this mercury problem. Many mercury study efforts have been done. The aim of this particular project has been groundwater mercury pollution distribution aureole forecasting. This poster provides methods and results of mathematical simulations of hydrogeological conditions in the northern industrial zone of the Pavlodar City chemical plant.
