Petroleum products include gasoline and furnace oil. Our society has used these products for almost a century and spills and fuel from leaking storage tanks have contaminated many properties. Petroleum contamination is a concern because it is persistent in soils, where it moves and degrades very slowly. In terms of total national output, the percentage yields of most refined petroleum products have remained constant over recent years. The percentage yields of the major refined petroleum products from crude oil for the years through are summarized in Table 4. Table 5 shows the yearly output of the major products.

More than refined products, including liquefied petroleum gas, gasoline, kerosene, aviation fuel, diesel fuel, fuel equipment or pipelines to the ground can also contribute to pollution of underground water. Vol. III - Control of Pollution in the Petroleum Industry - G. St. Cholakov File Size: KB.   Water quality is also important in ensuring post harvest quality by decreasing decay. Animal Health. It is important that livestock are provided with adequate amounts of quality water, free of contamination. Contaminated water can contain disease-causing organisms which can rapidly spread if animals are drinking from the same trough.

Typical Sources of Drinking Water Contamination. Most drinking water contamination can be attributed to human activities. Controlling contaminants in our drinking water is a delicate balance between regulating the source, determining safe levels, and choosing the best treatment. Pollution caused by crude oil and its refined products has posed as one of the greatest threats to the environment because contamination of areas by hydrocarbons can cause severe damage to sanitation because of the possibility of contamination of water used for human supply (Cetesb, ).File Size: KB.

Groundwater is also one of our most important sources of water for irrigation. Unfortunately, groundwater is susceptible to pollutants. Groundwater contamination occurs when man-made products such as gasoline, oil, road salts and chemicals get into the groundwater and.

Petroleum hydrocarbons contamination of surface water and groundwater is a notable environmental and human health problem in the oil producing communities and there are several water quality.

The quality of your water can have a significant effect on your health and comfort, and whether you are connected to a municipal water system or you have a private well, contamination is possible from a number of gh private wells are especially vulnerable, as treatment is the responsibility of the well owner, even municipal water systems can contain contaminants, either from.

Found in low concentrations in rocks, coal, and petroleum and enters the groundwater and surface water when dissolved by acidic waters. May enter the environment from industrial discharge, mining waste, metal plating, water pipes, batteries, paints and.

Chemicals and Petroleum Products Underground and aboveground storage tanks are commonly used to store petroleum products and other chemical substances. For example, many homes have underground heating oil tanks. Many businesses and municipal highway departments also store gasoline, diesel fuel, fuel oil, or chemi-cals in on-site tanks.

Satinder Ahuja, in Handbook of Water Purity and Quality, Publisher Summary. Groundwater contamination of arsenic can occur from various anthropogenic sources such as pesticides, wood preservatives, glass manufacture, and other miscellaneous arsenic uses.

These sources can be monitored and controlled. Arsenic contamination was reported as early as ; however, skin lesions. on petroleum hydrocarbon as it is a dominant source of energy, it has caused a huge area of contamination and relevant adverse effects [22]. The contamination of petroleum hydrocarbon disseminate from soil, water to human health.

In addition, biodegradation of chlorinated solvents can produce toxic degradation products, such as dichloroethylene and vinyl chloride, while petroleum degradation usually produces carbon dioxide, water, and sometimes methane or other simple hydrocarbons.

Part Three, Section Pipelines Crossing Contaminated Areas COMMON DESIGN GUIDELINES C Associated sources of petroleum products include gasoline filling stations, automotive repair facilities, bulk oil storage terminals, and underground storage tanks.

Common. Water contamination comes from three primary sources: Rainwater: It is usually safe to drink, but rainwater has become increasingly contaminated due to air pollution in various areas of the world.

Surface water: Storm water runoff can pollute rivers, streams and lakes, and much of the contamination comes from agriculture and industry. The most common sources of ground water contamination nationwide are underground storage tanks UST(’s), septic systems, pesticides, and nitrates.

The Alabama Department of Environmental Management ADEM() considers UST’s and failing septic systems to be the most serious threats to ground water in Alabama, because they are so numerous.

Additionally, the contamination of petroleum derivatives rich in low or high molecular weight hydrocarbons can interfere with LMW/HMW values (de Oliveira and dos Santos Madureira, ). LMW/HMW ratios Cited by: Also, contamination can result from petroleum production when leakage occurs from production wells-allowing cross-contamination of petroleum into shallower fresh­ water aquifers.

Agricultural Activities Numerous agricultural activities can result in non-point sources of groundwater Size: KB. Abstract. Subsurface contamination with petroleum products (oil) is one of the most important environmental problems. The paper presents two directions in studying the subsurface contamination with oil: 1 — research to assess contaminated sites including searching, observations, exploration, and remediation; 2 — investigations to design objects — potential contamination sources Author: N.

Ognianik, N. Paramonova, En. Shpak. Underground and above ground storage tanks holding petroleum products, acids, solvents and chemicals can develop leaks from corrosion, defects, improper installation, or mechanical failure of the pipes and fittings.

Mining of fuel and non-fuel minerals can create many .Point sources that can contaminate groundwater include landfill leachate and leaking underground storage tanks. These discharges are normally accidental and therefore, not regulated.
