English term or phrase:iron-bearing waters
Other precipitates are foun within the well structure. For example, ferrous ions combine with carbonate ions to form iron bicarbonate. Although not as common as ferric oxides and oxyhydroxides, iron bicarbonates often contribute to the plugging of water well intake screens.
Iron-bearing waters also favor the growth of iron bacteria, such as Crenothrix, Gallionella, and Leptothrix. These growths form so abundantly in water mains, recirculating systems, and occasionally in wells that they have a marked clogging effect.
