  • Strategic management of water resources important to Ontario craft breweries

    The vast majority of craft breweries in Ontario understand the need to improve their water and resource management performance to save money, protect the environment and enhance community relations. This was a major finding of a survey of Ontario craft breweries conducted in the fall of 2016 that found 97 per cent of respondents agree that better water management is important or very important to ...

  • Transformational adaptation – when climate change means business as usual is no longer possible

    1. A lesson from the past Deep in the central Sahara, a crumbling mud-brick town sits at the edge of a dry lake bed. This is the medieval town of Germa, in southwestern Libya, one of a string of settlements along the Wadi al-Ajal, a valley defined by the towering dunes of the Ubari Sand Sea to the north, and the black cliffs of the Messak Settafet plateau to the south. Germa is romantic ...

  • Development of water scenarios for large lakes in Europe: the case of Lake Peipsi

    Qualitative or quantitative description of the future by developing scenarios is a key method when taking a long-term view, e.g., up to 2050. Previously the time frames covered by the scenarios have usually been no more than 20 years. This period can be too short for achieving long-term goals when, for example, testing watershed management plans. This paper is an attempt to introduce and ...

  • Is Lake Prespa Jeopardizing the Ecosystem of Ancient Lake Ohrid?

    Lake Prespa and Lake Ohrid, located in south-eastern Europe, are two lakes of extraordinary ecological value. Although the upstream Lake Prespa has no surface outflow, its waters reach the 160 m lower Lake Ohrid through underground hydraulic connections. Substantial conservation efforts concentrate on oligotrophic downstream Lake Ohrid, which is famous for its large number of endemic and relict ...

  • Algae Control in Lakes and Reservoirs

    There are plenty of harmful algal bloom related cases worldwide but what is evident is that their number elevates with each year. Excessive cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) and green algae growth in a water reservoir can have negative consequences for the water quality. The water turns green, sand filters can clog, and some algae can produce geosmins and MIB, giving the water an ...

  • Skaneateles Lake Demonstration Project

     ABSTRACT The Skaneateles Lake Demonstration Project was established to demonstrate the use of commercially available alternative onsite wastewater treatment technologies in the Skaneateles Lake watershed to protect public health, maintain drinking water quality, and sustain the environment. Alternative onsite wastewater ...

  • All clear in lake Twiste

    Danger over for swimmers: what appears to be disgusting, is purely natural – algae Lake Twiste is clean and free of blue-green algae even if at the moment there is a large amount of filamentous algae present. However, this is not a problem and completely natural, Andreas Gründel, Environmental Engineer from the Hessen State Authority for the Environment and Geology explained. A ...

  • Lake Jamno remediation proposal

    Lake Jamno………. near the city of Koszalin in Poland, has been contaminated by bio-mass sludge build-up from many years of agriculture run-off. Once a popular recreational and vacation destination, the Lake has been closed to swimming and boating since 2001. A Letter of Intent has been signed between the City of Koszalin and BluePlanet for the reclamation of Lake Jamno using an AQUACLEAN Treatment ...

  • Development of the Sleeper Pit Lake

    The Sleeper open pit gold mine operated from the mid-1980s through the mid-1990s. Operations were mostly sub-water table and extensive dewatering was required to lower groundwater levels by 180 m. Dewatering flows peaked at 930 L/s, with most flow contributed from an alluvial aquifer. After completion of mining, the pit was rapidly filled with water pumped from the alluvial aquifer to reduce the ...

  • Multiscale Drivers of Water Chemistry of Boreal Lakes and Streams

    Abstract The variability in surface water chemistry within and between aquatic ecosystems is regulated by many factors operating at several spatial and temporal scales. The importance of geographic, regional-, and localscale factors as drivers of the natural variability of three water chemistry variables representing buffering capacity and the importance of weathering (acid neutralizing ...


  • Lake Water Quality Model with Focus on Cyanobacteria

    ABSTRACTThe cause of cyanobacteria’s growth and dominance in certain eutrophic lakes is explored via a water quality model application. The one-dimensional lake water quality model includes nitrogen, phosphorus, silica, three phytoplankton groups and zooplankton. Lake Washington was used as the case study due to its unique history of eutrophication during a large wastewater nutrient loading ...

  • Interested in Greenseal Lake Liners?

    Interested In Greenseal Lake Liners? People who own nice stretches of land around their homes are always on the hunt to find something to increase the appeal of their properties. Some people have a thing for flower gardens, so they build extremely complex gardens with waterfalls and ponds and so on. For others, having their own lake on their property is the biggest target. You do not have to ...

  • Biological water treatment effective in Saddle Lake

    Three transparent pipes connected to a network of hoses and gauges stretch from the floor to the 14-foot ceiling in a back room of the Saddle Lake water treatment plant. Water burbles through the pipes, mixing with a material that looks like black sand. The particles are actually expanded clay aggregates that provide the surface needed for water-cleaning bacteria to live on. The bacteria remove ...

  • Lake water levels for calibration of the S-HYPE model

    Lake water levels are easy to measure, and can be seen as a transformation of discharge. Water level measurements from 42 lakes in Sweden were analysed, and eight of these lakes were modelled using the Swedish S-HYPE model. The objective was to test if a hydrological model can be calibrated using water level data instead of discharge. A semi-analytical lake routing was developed to resolve ...

  • Waste systems for lake and coastal development

    Abstract Because of site specific factors such as clayey soils, excessive slopes. seasonal soil wetness, and rapid "perc" sands, the conventional septic tank-soil absorption system has had a high rate of malfunctioning in lake and coastal shore developments. Because of high density of development in close proximity to these waters of Texas, alternative systems were needed which offer ...

  • Possible impacts of the Poyang Lake (China) hydraulic project on lake hydrology and hydrodynamics

    Flow regime change is the leading driving force in the evolution of lacustrine ecological systems. According to the planned water level regulation scheme of the Poyang Lake hydraulic project (PLHP), this research discusses the possible impacts of PLHP on the hydrology and hydrodynamics of Poyang Lake (China) using the method of scenario simulation. The results show that a controlled water ...
