Carbon sequestration could affect water supplies
October 27, 2008
As people have discussed options for reducing carbon in the atmosphere, the idea of underground sequestration has been discussed with some seriousness. By capturing and storing carbon dioxide in underground rock formations
, it is thought that the carbon dioxide would be effectively isolated from the atmosphere. However, some groups in the water industry are concerned that if the carbon dioxide leaks from those underground storage sites, it could carry metals into sub-surface water supplies
by disrupting the natural pH balance of the water.
