  • Infiltration Testing for Hydraulic Conductivity of Soil Liners

    This paper describes the use of single ring infiltrometers for evaluating the hydraulic conductivity of compacted soil liners. Procedures are presented for installation and monitoring of infiltrometers in the field. Results of hydraulic conductivity estimated from infiltrometer tests on six laboratory model liners are presented and compared with the results of conventional laboratory tests. In ...

  • Underwater Bridge Inspections – Drones Conducting Remote Evaluations

    Deep Trekker Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV), or underwater drones, are establishing themselves as the ideal tool for underwater bridge inspections. It goes without saying that the structural integrity of a bridge is extremely important; after all, you’re only either walking, driving, or riding a train across it. With the public safety in mind and to continue the flow of traffic, these ...

  • 8 Steps for Conducting an EHS Culture Assessment

    Environment, health and safety (EHS) managers spend a significant amount of time developing, implementing, auditing and managing their EHS programs—all while training employees, monitoring and measuring performance, and reporting on progress. But despite their best efforts, many EHS managers still find their programs fail to drive best-in-class performance. Why? In our experience, the lack ...

  • Quality Assurance Guidance for Conducting Brownfields Site Assessments

    Executive Summary Many sites across the nation once used for industrial and commercial purposes are now abandoned or under-used. Some of these sites — often referred to as “Brownfields”— are contaminated; others are perceived or suspected to be contaminated. In 1993, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) created the Brownfields Economic Redevelopment Initiative to empower States, Tribes, ...

  • Conducting The Phase I Assessment - Records Review

     This is the second in a series of five articles relating to conducting Phase I Environmental Site assessments. Each article attempts to give the reader a thorough understanding of a specific aspect of the Phase I process and Clayton’s commitment to meeting or exceeding the requirements of ASTM Standard E 1527 Standard Practice for Environmental Site Assessments: Phase I Environmental Site ...


  • Methodological considerations when conducting bench scale polychromatic ultraviolet irradiation of water

    The use of a bench scale apparatus (often referred to as a ‘collimated beam’) to apply fluences to water samples is common practice in disinfection research and in validating the performance of full-scale UV disinfection reactors. This study investigated the sources of potential experimental variations in the calculation of fluence when conducting polychromatic collimated beam ...

  • Electrical conductivity as a state indicator for the start-up period of anaerobic fixed-bed reactors

    The aim of this work was to analyse the applicability of electrical conductivity sensors for on-line monitoring the start-up period of an anaerobic fixed-bed reactor. The evolution of bicarbonate concentration and methane production rate was analysed. Strong linear relationships between electrical conductivity and both bicarbonate concentration and methane production rate were observed. ...

  • Impact of the As Samra wastewater treatment plant upgrade on the water quality (COD, electrical conductivity, TP, TN) of the Zarqa River

    The impact of the As Samra wastewater treatment plant upgrade on the quality of the Zarqa River (ZR) water was investigated. Time series data that extend from October 2005 until December 2009 obtained by a state-of-the-art telemetric monitoring system were analyzed at two monitoring stations located 4 to 5 km downstream of the As Samra effluent confluence with the Zarqa River and about 25 km ...

  • Asbestos monitoring – what monitor should I be using?

    Asbestos is the name given to a group of minerals that occur naturally as masses of strong, flexible fibres that can be separated into thin threads and woven. These fibres are not affected by heat and do not conduct electricity. Asbestos is chemically, relatively stable. For these reasons, asbestos has been widely used in many industries.  These four types are classified as follows:  ...

  • Landfill Gas Monitoring Procedures

     Purpose of Document The purpose of this document is to provide standardized procedures for California Integrated Waste Management Board (Board) inspectors to use when performing landfill gas (LFG) monitoring during routine disposal site inspections. The standardization of procedures is intended to produce an acceptable level of confidence in the monitoring. This document presumes that each ...


  • Groundwater Monitoring Case Study

    Global has been contracted by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, Remediation and Redevelopment Division (MDEQ RRD) to conduct quarterly sampling at a former gas station and adjacent property located near a State of Michigan owned public assess site to Torch Lake. The purpose of the sampling is to assure that there are no impacts to the surface water located downgradient of the ...

  • Climate monitoring - meeting the challenge

    Average global temperatures are on the increase, ice and snow cover is disappearing fast and sea levels are rising. In addition, severe weather situations are becoming more frequent and more extreme. There is clear evidence that the Earth’s atmosphere and oceans are warming: 11 of the 12 years in the period 1995-2006 were among the 12 warmest since 1850. Climate change is a reality and it is ...

  • Weather Data for Noise Monitoring

    “Weather conditions are the single largest variable factor in how sound travels over large distances,” says Steve Bilawchuk principal partner and engineer at ACI Acoustical Consultants Inc. “Wind speed and wind direction are of crucial importance.” ACI is an acoustical engineering consulting company based in Alberta, Canada, which uses ...

  • Monitoring watershed health

    Background Municipal water quality managers recognize the need for data that can be used to monitor and assess the impact of urbanization on the condition of natural watersheds. Storm events, in conjunction with the alteration of native landscape, building of roads and overuse of fertilizer, can contribute to excess nutrients, sediment and other pollutants in environmentally significant ...

  • Radiation Monitors and Meters

    Light Description and Applications The light meter is a portable unit designed to measure visible, UV, and near-UV light in the workplace. (The CTC has a UV light meter available through its loan program, ALEP.) The light meter is capable of reading any optical unit of energy or power level if the appropriate detector has been calibrated with the meter. The spectral range of the instrument is ...

  • Organics Monitoring: A Practical Guide

  • Monitoring of Algae Growth by TOC Measurement

    Global warming due to the excessive use of fossil fuels is becoming a problem which has prompted and accelerated the search for alternative fuels. Among the more attractive alternatives is biomass fuel, which is attracting considerable attention. Microalgae can be used for the production of oil without competing with food production, and to a greater extent than other biofuels, its ...

  • Abandoning Monitoring Wells: Safety Issues

    Monitoring wells are typically constructed to gauge the extent of contamination, assess water quality and conduct other hydrogeologic studies. Depending on its objective, the monitoring well may remain in use or may be abandoned permanently. When declared inactive, the well is many a times left as it is. Open unused wells are hazardous to life and environment: • Contamination may spread from one ...

  • Monitoring pH and ORP in a SHARON reactor

    This paper analyses the valuable information provided by the on-line measurements of pH and oxidation reduction potential (ORP) in a continuous single high ammonia removal over nitrite (SHARON) reactor. A laboratory-scale SHARON reactor equipped with pH, ORP, electric conductivity and dissolved oxygen (DO) probes has been operated for more than one year. Nitrogen removal over nitrite has been ...
