  • Online discharge measurement with OTT SLD

    Background For the economic management of the waterways between Elbe and Oder it is essential to know the discharge of these rivers at defined locks. The authority for water and navigation (WSA) in Lauenburg operates hydrological stations for the measurement of water level and discharge to effectively regulate the water flow at the locks in Plau and Malliß ...

  • Online flow measurement

    Background The undershoot weir in Hohensaaten was built in 1913. It has three openings and regulates the discharge from the Oderbruch and from the Finow canal into the Hohensaaten-Friedrichsthaler-waterway. Moreover, it protects parts of the Oderbruch against Oder floods. The weir controls the waterlevels in the Havel-Oder-waterway and in the reach of Niederfinow- Hohensaaten. ...

  • Heat From Wastewater

    When it comes to using wastewater heat from channels, provision and evaluation of hydraulic and thermal wastewater data is urgently needed prior to planning and implementation of facilities. Knowing the wastewater temperatures as well as the flow rates - particularly as dry weather discharge – is an indispensable component. It is therefore essential to carry out preliminary measurements ...

  • Studying of flow model and bed load transport in a coarse bed river: case study – Aland River, Iran

    This paper describes a mathematical model which solves the 1D unsteady flow over a mobile bed. The model is based on the Richtmyer second-order explicit scheme. Comparison of the model results with the experimental flume data for alluvial steady flow (aggradation due to overloading) and unsteady flow shows that, by using the two-step method of Richtmyer, one can solve the equations, governing the ...

  • Ocean outfall plume characterization using an autonomous underwater vehicle

    A monitoring mission to map and characterize the Point Loma Ocean Outfall (PLOO) wastewater plume using an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) was performed on 3 March 2011. The mobility of an AUV provides a significant advantage in surveying discharge plumes over traditional cast-based methods, and when combined with optical and oceanographic sensors, provides a capability for both detecting ...

  • Dynamics and environmental risk assessment of the herbicide glyphosate and its metabolite AMPA in a small vineyard river of the Lake Geneva catchment

    The use of pesticides may lead to environmental problems, such as surface water pollution, with a risk for aquatic organisms. In the present study, a typical vineyard river of western Switzerland was first monitored in order to measure discharged loads, identify sources and assess the dynamic of the herbicide glyphosate and its metabolite AMPA. Second, based on river concentrations, an ...

  • Log yard water treatment study

    Stormwater run-off from log yards and saw mills has long been a difficult waste stream to manage. The challenge arises from ability of wood and bark to easily leach high levels of organics (tannins, lignins, phenolics and resin acids) into mobile water. These organics can remain in the suspended state for months and exhibit toxicity to aquatic life as organisms break them down leading to a ...

  • Effects of mechanical harvest plus chipping and prescribed fire on Sierran runoff water quality

    Received for publication September 14, 2007. Fire suppression in Sierran ecosystems creates a substantial wildfire hazard and may exacerbate nutrient inputs into Lake Tahoe by allowing the buildup of O horizon material, which serves as a source for high N and P concentrations in runoff water. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of biomass reduction using cut-to-length mechanical ...

  • Rapid on-site analysis of fats, oil and grease (FOG)

    It is estimated that 23-28% of Sanitary Sewer Overflows (SSOs) are due to Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG) or as much as 19 million gallons from 1998 to 2001 (State of North Carolina, 2004). Our increasingly mobile society has led to a decrease of cooking at home and a significant growth in the commercial food sector. This, on top of other industries such as metal processors, meat packers, cosmetic ...

  • LEGAL LOOKOUT: EPA Proposes Amendment to SPCC Plan Requirements

    On Dec. 12, 2005, the EPA proposed to amend Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) plan requirements to reduce the regulatory burden these requirements impose on covered entities. The agency also released a document entitled SPCC Guidance for Regional Inspectors to assist regional inspectors in assessing a facility's implementation of SPCC requirements. As such, the document is an ...

  • Aggressive dewatering aids concrete rehab at Abitibi

    An enormous volume of water passes through the Abitibi Canyon Generating Station every hour of every day. In order to complete critical concrete repairs on the hydro power station, general contractor The Barclay Construction Group needed to find a way to pump and discharge almost 30 million gallons of water in a 500-metre section of the river upstream from the station in under 30 hours. Aquatech ...

  • Geotube Dewatering Technology Solves Lagoon Cleanout for Mexico’s Largest Chicken Processing Plant - Case Study

    Mexico's largest chicken processing plant was experiencing high levels of BOD discharge into the local river because their two sludge lagoons were full of high percentage solids sludge. The plant was expanding operations and had no place to store the additional sludge that would be generated, nor did it have any onsite means of removal and dewatering. The problem was compounded because the excess ...

  • Toxicity Identification Evaluation (TIE) as a Tool for Water Quality Management

    Whole effluent toxicity (WET) testing has evolved into a critical element of many National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permits issued to both industrial and municipal dischargers. Over 6,500 dischargers to both fresh and salt waters are required to conduct toxicity tests to determine if their effluent might be potentially toxic to organisms in the receiving system. While ...
