  • Hydrocarbon in Water Monitors using Fluorescence

    Hydrocarbon in Water Monitors using Fluorescence are capable of detecting hydrocarbons as low as 5 Parts per Billion and as high as 10,000 Parts per Million depending on the application.  Because only the target hydrocarbons will fluoresce, these monitors have no significant affect due to water turbidity (rust, dirt, gas bubbles, soot, etc.).  Fluorescence monitors provide a measurement ...

  • Report to Congress: Combined Sewer Overflows to the Lake Michigan Basin

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is transmitting this Report to Congress on combined sewer overflows (CSOs) in the Lake Michigan basin. CSOs can occur in combined sewer systems (CSSs), which are defined as collection systems that carry both wastewater and storm water in the same pipe. A CSO is defined as “the discharge from a CSS at a point prior to the publicly-owned treatment ...
