PFAS contamination in farmland and groundwater

Map of Septage and Sludge Sites

Maine DEP - PFOA and PFOS

In the 1970s - 90s, many farmers were misled about the safety of spreading treated human waste and sludge from chemical plants and paper mills on their hayfields as a fertilizer. Now some vegetable and livestock farmers are discovering that their groundwater and fields are contaminated at levels hundreds of times beyond safe or legal limits.

What's the most effective way to heat a greenhouse using groundwater (59Β°F)

I've got a small greenhouse (12'x7') that I've setup to get the hang of things before I build my big one. I'd like to start some cold hardy veggies now in January (zone 8a) Like broccoli and spinach. I've got a small space heater on low and a black 55 gal barrel full of water. The Temps stay above freezing but I'd like to be able to eliminate the space heater and use just the water to keep it warm at night if possible.

I have a pretty lucky source right next to the greenhouse. It's a small pond with a natural spring that I have developed into a bit of a shallow well. It has the capability to deliver on average 20 GPM of water that's 58-59Β°F.

What would be the most efficient way to extract this heat? Pump it thru a radiator? Loops of pex pipe in the floor? Mist it into the air inside?

I've experimented a bit with letting it fill up the barrel and spill over to a pipe back to the pond, pump it thru 100'of pex coiled around on the floor. Each method resulted in a discharge temp of about 55Β°F which seems to me not much heat was transfered.

Replentishing groundwater aquifers....

While it might seem that your lawn and open space areas are saturated, if you use a pitchfork or move away a few inches of top soil, you'll see that the soil below isn't really absorbing the water.

Most likely it's too compacted, clay composite, wrong composts or dead roots have impacted it.

I'd like to encourage people to try and open up some space for the rain to absorb deep into your soil and not just run off to the street. Or put out a few buckets to try and save some run off for later... after all we're still in a drought state even though it's raining now...

I know I'll probably get a lot of push back -- I normally do, but I'd like to encourage people to help in any way they can. Thanks!

GCD - Groundwater Conservation District

My wife and I are Dallas natives and are looking at finally purchasing a home. We’ve been active in the market for a few months, it’s been nothing short of a disaster as I’m sure many can relate. Anyways, we found another home we want to submit an offer on but it’s located in a β€œGroundwater Conservation District.” I haven’t heard of this before, and there is some information available online, but it doesn’t really say what to watch out for or be aware of before committing to purchasing in one of these areas. It seems to indicate the home possibly being on well water supply? But we’re really not sure.

We’ve toured and offered on several homes and this is the first time we’ve come across this situation. Any information would be appreciated. The home is located in far north Dallas.

TIA!
