  • Study: Peers Influence Water Conservation Choices

    Noting the effects of water conservation on peers, researchers estimated that if 1% of Phoenix households cut consumption, it would lead to metropolitan water savings of 6.6 million gallons over the growing season. Researches found that those who adopted dry landscaping influenced their neighbors to do the same Economists and marketers alike know that social ...

  • Lead in Drinking Water for small supply systems

    The problem of lead in drinking water is most-publicized for the larger water supply systems of Cities and Towns, particularly the older districts, where lead piping was often used to connect houses to a municipal water supply system and for internal plumbing, unto the early 1980s (generally). The problem is more closely associated with the longer established industrialized and urbanized ...

  • UK experience in the monitoring and control of lead in drinking water

    At the zonal scale (e.g. a city or town), random daytime (RDT) sampling succeeded in demonstrating both the need for corrective action and the benefits of optimised orthophosphate dosing for plumbosolvency control, despite initial concerns about sampling reproducibility. Stagnation sampling techniques were found to be less successful. Optimised treatment measures to minimise lead in drinking ...

  • Using watershed function as the leading indicator for water quality

    Diffuse nonpoint source (NPS) pollutants, such as sediment, nitrogen, phosphorus, and pathogens, have become the primary cause of water quality impairments in the United States of America. Resource management agencies in the USA are expanding the use of tools for the assessment of ecosystem function in water quality programs to control NPS pollution to meet US Clean Water Act objectives. ...

  • Unsealed tubewells lead to increased fecal contamination of drinking water

    Bangladesh is underlain by shallow aquifers in which millions of drinking water wells are emplaced without annular seals. Fecal contamination has been widely detected in private tubewells. To evaluate the impact of well construction on microbial water quality 35 private tubewells (11 with intact cement platforms, 19 without) and 17 monitoring wells (11 with the annulus sealed with cement, six ...

  • Levels of cadmium, manganese and lead in water and algae; Spirogyra aequinoctialis

    This study assessed the ability of filamentous green algae; Spirogyra aequinoctialis to accumulate manganese, cadmium and lead from water. Water pH was also determined. Samples of S. aequinoctialis and their respective water environments were taken from designated sampling points in the city of Blantyre and Malawi during the ...

  • Assessing risk with increasingly stringent public health goals: the case of water lead and blood lead in children

    Previous predictions of children's blood lead levels (BLLs) through biokinetic models conclude that lead in tap water is not a primary health risk for a typical child under scenarios representative of chronic exposure, when applying a 10 μg/dL BLL of concern. Use of the US Environmental Protection Agency Integrated Exposure Uptake Biokinetic (IEUBK) model and of the International ...

  • Computational modelling methods for assessing the risks from lead in drinking water

    Computational modelling methods have been used to predict the risks from lead in drinking water across a simulated supply zone, for a range of plumbosolvency conditions and a range of extents of occurrence of houses having a lead pipe, on the basis of five risk benchmarking methods. For the worst case modelled (very high plumbosolvency and 90% houses with a lead pipe) the percentage of houses at ...

  • Getting the lead out — at the faucet

    You might be surprised at where you’ll find a customer’s lead. Lead is making headlines. First, we should note that the current attention is not due to water, air or soil contamination, but from lead contamination recently found in toys and children’s jewelry made in China. This is very frightening for any parent because of the harm lead can to cause in children. How could this happen? How ...

  • “To lead or follow?” That is the question for Ramsar

    As I leave behind the vast and wild beauty of Uruguay’s coasts, I have some mixed feelings about the progress made at the 12th Ramsar Convention on Wetlands Conference of Parties (COP), held in Punta del Este. “What was it for?”, the uninitiated may ask. Actually I’m asking myself the same question, even though I have 25 years of experience engaging with this Convention ...

  • The possible toxic effects of lead

    Lead is a chemical element in the periodic table that has the symbol Pb (Latin: plumbum) and atomic number 82. A soft, heavy, toxic and malleable lead is bluish white when freshly cut but tarnishes to dull gray when exposed to air, very dense metal which is very soft, highly malleable, ductile, and a relatively poor conductor of electricity. It is odourless. It is highly resistant to corrosion ...

  • Does the risk of Legionnaire’s Disease rise when there’s lead in your water?

    Ongoing monitoring shows that lead levels in Flint, Michigan’s water are dropping and getting closer to meeting federal safety standards. That’s some much-needed positive news for the community. But there’s still work to be done. Now, researchers are starting to check residential hot water heaters in Flint homes for Legionella. Legionella grows best in warm water and hot water ...
