Linda Chalker-Scott, Ph.D., (2001) The Myth of Polyacrylamide Hydrogels
View
When hydrogels break down, they release potassium acrylate and acrylamide. Acrylamide is a lethal neurotoxin and has been found to cause cancer in laboratory animals. It readily passes through the skin and can be inhaled as dust.  May 5, 2013, 11:15 AM Amy Nelson

Describes the practice of using polymers to settle out or remove suspended sediment from water within sediment control structures. "The use of cationic polyacrylamide shall be avoided where there is danger of impacting aquatic organisms because its toxicity to aquatic test species occurs at very low concentrations."  Jan 12, 2013, 5:13 PM Amy Nelson

Ground Water and Surface Water— the Vital Connection (2005)

High ground-water pumping rates in western Kansas caused perennial streams to disappear and the High Plains aquifer to decrease 200' (more than 50% of the aquifer thickness in some places). The same thing is starting to be seen in MN.  Nov 19, 2012, 5:47 AM Amy Nelson

MN DNR: Hydraulic impacts of Quarries and Pits (2005)
View
"When limestone quarries are dewatered to allow mining below the water table, they alter groundwater levels and flow direction. In essence, the quarries become huge wells. Ground-water levels were found to have dropped up to 70 ft; this lowering of the ground-water levels can affect wells on neighboring properties and surface-water bodies. New quarries that will extract material below the water table will have to be sited carefully to avoid this impact, or a plan must be developed to provide an alternative water supply for property owners whose wells are affected."  Nov 19, 2012, 5:47 AM Amy Nelson
