Laboratory and Field Testing of Enzyme and Microbially Induced Carbonate Precipitation for Mitigation of Fugitive Dust

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

The Center for Bio-mediated and Bio-inspired Geotechnics (CBBG) will collaborate with the Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation), the Imperial Irrigation District (IID), and other members of the Salton Sea task force on Laboratory and Field Testing of Enzyme and Microbially Induced Carbonate Precipitation for Mitigation of Fugitive Dust. ASUs scope of work will include deployment and monitoring of Enzyme Induced Carbonate Precipitation (EICP) and Microbially Induced Carbonate Precipitation (MICP) test sections at an IID site adjacent to the Salton Sea and laboratory testing of soils from the Salton Sea playa to see if the residues from agricultural drainage found in the playa soils adversely impacts EICP and MICP
