  • Effects of a chronic lower range of triclosan exposure to a stream mesocosm community

    Triclosan (5‐chloro‐2‐(2,4‐dichlorophenoxy)phenol) is an antimicrobial found in consumer soaps and toothpaste. It is in treated wastewater effluents at low part per billion concentrations, representing a potentially chronic exposure condition for biota inhabiting receiving streams. A naturally colonized benthos was created using flow‐through indoor mesocosms. Then the benthic communities were ...

  • Cyanobacteria successfully monitored and controlled by using ultrasound

    Cyanobacteria- also known as blue-green algae- cause problems when blooming in lakes, ponds and reservoirs. Mainly due to the production of toxins, cyanobacteria cause fish kill and the death of other aquatic animals. They also affect human beings, causing paralysis and skin irritation, and they are even thought to be related to the occurrence of liver cancer. In drinking water reservoirs, the ...

  • Are Lake Alum Application Strategies Set Up For Failure?

    Since 2012, we have been working with stakeholders at a high value 300-acre lake in the US. They have been considering putting in SolarBee® Lake Circulators to control toxic blue-green algae (cyanobacteria) blooms. So far however, they have opted to apply aluminum sulfate (alum) in an effort to tie up phosphorus at the sediment (thus preventing "internal loading” or recycling of ...

  • Algal blooms: What are they?

    Algal blooms are also known as marine blooms or water blooms, and are actually a sudden increase in the population of algae in water scenery. Algal blooms usually take place in freshwater, such as lakes and water reservoirs as well as in marine milieus. They can be easily identified by coloration of the water ensuing from the high density of pigmented cells. Though many types of algae can form ...
