Across the world, there is growing recognition that the prevailing model of economic growth, grounded in ever-increasing resource use and pollutant emissions, cannot be sustained indefinitely. In the coming decades, with global population expected to increase to 9 billion people from 7.6 billion today, continued improvements in living standards ...

Fate and effects of clothianidin in fields using conservation practices

by John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.  (Nov. 7, 2014)

Despite the extensive use of the neonicotinoid insecticide clothianidin, and its known toxicity to beneficial insects like pollinators, little attention has been given to its fate under agricultural field conditions. The present study investigated the fate and toxicity of clothianidin applied every other year as a corn seed‐coating at two ...

Design of dual water supply system using rainwater and groundwater at arsenic contaminated area in Vietnam

by IWA Publishing  (Nov. 6, 2014)

Fresh water, a renewable but limited resource, is scarce in many areas of the developing world. This paper proposes a dual water supply consisting of both rainwater and groundwater to provide sustainable water for an arsenic contaminated area. In this paper, a novel model has been developed based on rainfall variance. A rainwater harvesting (RWH) ...

Challenge: A Fortune 100 company requested our ecological expertise and support for its watershed management program and its pledge to replenish water used in production of its products back to nature and communities in the U.S. and Canada. Antea Group's assistance includes source water protection, community watershed partnerships, and technical ...

Application of Ecological Risk Assessment in Managing Residual Fly Ash in TVA's Watts Bar Reservoir, Tennessee

by John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.  (Oct. 25, 2014)

The Tennessee Valley Authority conducted a Baseline Ecological Risk Assessment (BERA) for the Kingston Fossil Plant ash release site to evaluate potential effects of residual coal ash on biota in Watts Bar Reservoir, Tennessee. The BERA was in response to a release of 4.1 million m3 of coal ash on December 22, 2008. It used multiple lines of ...

Applications and implications of neurochemical biomarkers in environmental toxicology

by John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.  (Oct. 21, 2014)

Thousands of environmental contaminants have neurotoxic properties though their ecological risk is poorly characterized. Contaminant‐associated disruptions to animal behavior and reproduction, both of which are regulated by the nervous system, provide compelling evidence of harm to decision makers but such apical endpoints are of limited ...

Economic effects of the consolidation of water utilities in Japan

Therefore, they face enormous difficulties in terms of financial and personnel resources. To take advantage of economies of scale, the consolidation of water utilities has been promoted since 1965 by Japanese water ...

The impact of digital elevation model and land use spatial information on Hydrologic Simulation Program-FORTRAN – predicted stream flow and sediment uncertainty

by IWA Publishing  (Sep. 25, 2014)

The Hydrologic Simulation Program-FORTRAN (HSPF) model is widely used to develop management strategies for water resources. The spatial resolution of the input data used to parameterize the HSPF model may lead to uncertainty in model outputs. In this study, we evaluated the impact of the spatial resolution of the digital elevation model (DEM) and ...
