Groundwater Pollution

Potential transport pathways of asbestos fibers in groundwater from contaminated sites.
To prevent exposure of millions of people living near thousands of contaminated sites to asbestos, the sites are typically capped with soil and amendments, assuming asbestos mobility underground is negligible in all conditions. Here, we disprove this long-standing assumption and showed that the presence of certain types of dissolved organic matter (DOM) can facilitate the transport of the asbestos fibers through packed sand or soil columns.
