  • Noses for Surveillance of Wastewater from Secondary Treatment Plants in Alexandria, Egypt

    Intermittent discharges of industrial chemical pollutants into sewers can have a damaging effect on the processes involved in treating wastewater. They are sometimes able to pass through treatment plants and enter into the receiving water, to exert a harmful effect on the environment and possibly pass down a river to the intakes forwater supplies. We evaluated the use of an electronic ...
