Due to green algae problems in the water reservoir of a drinking water treatment plant, the ALGcontrol was installed to continuously monitor the algae concentrations and possible toxic blue green algae blooms. During almost 4 months the ALGcontrol measured the total chlorophyll and cyano chlorophyll concentrations of the water reservoir. In order to be able to compare these results, second off-line controls were carried out using the ISO 10260 chlorophyll-a quantification (extraction into ethanol, spectrophotometri...
GPR exploration of fresh water reservoirs allows user to examine in details the bottom.
The important feature of GPR use that is to be mentioned - it can examine the structure of the bottom. I.e. there is possible to find underwater items located inside the bottom stratum.
Also GPR can provide an information about the thickness of bottom silt or bottom ground, and its volume structure.
The same exploration is very problematic if made by other means.
In the summer 2012 VIY3-300 GPR was examined as sub-bottom...
Measuring water quantity and quality in surface water (open channels, rivers, reservoirs, lakes, and estuaries) is one of the foundations of hydrological monitoring and has been a focus of OTT Hydromet since its first water current meters were designed in 1875.
The UniLux in-situ fluorometer can be configured to detect a number of key parameters that are of importance to the Water Supply Industry. Primarily, the detection of Chlorophyll a in stored water systems, such as reservoirs, assists in the planning and informs decisions on water abstraction in relation to natural algae blooms that regularly occur throughout the year. As well as Chlorophyll a, these in-situ fluorometers can detect cyanobacterias, such as Phycocyanin and Phycoerythrin, which are often associated...
Pollution Risk: Surface water encompasses storm water derived from hard standing areas, river water and reservoirs. All types of surface water are at risk from ingress of pollution and therefore need to be monitored. On-line continuous monitoring can identify and alarm pollution so corrective action can be taken
Hydro power contributes to supplying approximately 3,5 per cent of electric energy generated worldwide. Its share in power generation from renewable resources lies at 18 per cent and will continue to grow as resources of fossil fuels are depleted. Hydro electric performance depends essentially on the usable altitude difference between upper and lower reservoir, and hence the resulting water flow. In order to use the “fuel” water in an optimal way, the flow velocity has to be monitored without any...
STS specialises in products for the regulation of water levels and pressure regulation in the area of water supply. These are used in reservoir management as well as the monitoring of freshwater distribution.
Water suppliers typically test for radionuclides once or twice a year. Most drinking water supplies are surface water; reservoirs, rivers, treatment plants. Current vulnerability to terrorist attack or industrial accident is a critical public safety consideration. No other vendors have duplicated US Nuclear Corps’ Technical Associates Continuous Real-Time Water Monitoring systems. Globally Technical Associates is the sole source for this level of monitoring for both drinking water and waste water. This...
Dissolved Species Analysis
Dissolved species analysis employing Hiden's high sensitivity membrane sampling technology for analysis of respiratory gases, hydrocarbons and sulphides is applied to a wide range of application areas including:
Ecolological studies in sea water
Bio fuel production from algae
Pollution monitoring in river, estuary and reservoir waters
Soil core analyses
