Uranium Contamination Why in News? Scientists have found widespread uranium contamination in groundwater from aquifers across 16 states in India, much above the WHO provisional standard for the country. The main source of uranium contamination was "natural," but human factors such as groundwater table decline and nitrate pollution could be worsening the problem Main factors responsible for uranium contamination: When over-pumping of aquifers' groundwater occurs and their water levels decline, it nduces oxidation conditions that, turn, enhance uranium enrichment in the shallow groundwater that remains. While the primary source of uranium is geogenic (naturally occurring), anthropogenic (human caused) factors such as groundwater table decline and nitrate pollution may further enhance uranium mobilization Other factors include the amount of uranium contained in an aquifer's rocks; water-rock interactions that cause the uranium to be extracted from those rocks; oxidation conditions that enhance the extracted uranium's solubility in water; and the interaction of the extracted uranium with other chemicals in the groundwater, such as bicarbonate, which can further enhance its solubility
