  • Mechanical Dredging Vs. Biological Dredging

    For many years, mechanical dredging has been the solution for dying ponds, lakes, retention basins, and rivers. Dredging removes sediment, some excess nutrients, pollutants and organic matter. By increasing the depth in this way, weed growth is discouraged, water temperature lowered and oxygen levels may be increased. Although mechanical dredging can help in these ways, it only solves part of the ...

  • Building a filter defense against Zebra and Quagga mussles

    Tiny mussels can create massive problems for intake structures, vaLves, pumps, screens and other water infrastructure around the US. Some filtration systems can provide chemical-free protection against invasive zebra and quagga mussels, but it is vital to understand the problem and develop the right system to avoid being overrun by the alien species. Zebra mussels (Dreissena polymorpha) and their ...

  • Phytoremediation - II

    Introduction: Phytoremediation is a set of processes that uses plants to clean contamination in ground water and surface water. There are several ways plants can be used for the phytoremediation. These mechanisms include enhanced rhizosphere biodegradation, hydraulic control, phyto-degradation and phyto-volatilization. Enhanced Rhizosphere Biodegradation Enhanced ...

  • Phytoremediation - I

    Introduction Phytoremediation is a process that uses plants to remove, transfer, stabilize, and destroy contaminants in soil and sediment. The mechanisms of phytoremediation include enhanced rhizosphere biodegradation, phyto-extraction (also called phyto-accumulation), phyto-degradation, and phyto-stabilization. Enhanced Rhizosphere Biodegradation Enhanced ...

  • Stormwater Best Management Practices (BMP)

    Storm water is the result of rain or snow melt that collects in an area that can drain from into a nearby body of waters such as a lake or river. The water can collect on roof tops, parking lots, saturated ground, roads, etc. The problem is that many of the pollutants of our modern living such as oil, grease, pesticides, sediment, salt, and animal waste are washed away within the storm water and ...
