Oxygen, the fix for pond problems
Aeration of a water feature should have three main considerations. These include preventing thermal stratification, balancing the dissolved oxygen levels throughout the water column from the sludge or benthic layer to the surface and balancing temperature levels throughout the water column. Although oxygen transfer from certain methods may be significant, the greatest amount of oxygenation takes ...

NPDES effluent guidelines: Industrial wastewater discharge
To comply with the stringent NPDES effluent guidelines, it is vital to understand the mechanisms and interactions that affect the balance in the aquatic ecosystems. The National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) requires power plants in the U.S. to control their levels of harmful pollutants released in surface waters according to the specific effluent limitations. In this ...

Which Material is Best as A Liner for A Landfill
Landfill leakage pollution is very harmful to the environment. After the soil is polluted, it will be salinized, poisoned, parasites, pathogenic bacteria and other pathogens in the soil can make people sick. Infiltration can also contaminate groundwater and enter the human food chain, causing serious harm to the human body. Artificial material impermeability: geomembrane are usually high-density ...
What Does Landfill Liners Cost?
With the progress of industrialization and the improvement of people’s living standards, population explosion has become one of the most important problems on earth. In the past years, the earth’s population has continued to grow, and now it has exceeded 7 billion. With the rapid increase of population and the advent of industrial society, 7 billion people on the earth consume a lot ...

What constitutes a sustainable solution? Why are we concerned with potable water needs? Where in the world does this apply? We’ll answer each of these first and then we ...
Environmental Effects of Acid Rain
Air Pollution Creates Acid Rain Scientists have discovered that air pollution from the burning of fossil fuels is the major cause of acid rain. Acidic deposition, or acid rain as it is commonly known, occurs when emissions of sulfur dioxide (SO2) and oxides of nitrogen (NOx) react in the atmosphere with water, oxygen, and oxidants to form various acidic compounds. This mixture forms a mild ...
The Potential of Solar-Powered Water Circulators to Help Solve Serious Water and Energy Problems in the U.S.
With increasing human populations comes the corresponding increased need for improving water quality in lakes, wastewater ponds, potable water reservoirs, and other water storage facilities. Providing circulation within water reservoirs of all types has long been known to provide meaningful benefits, but the costs to achieve sufficient circulation through diffused aeration or mechanical mixers ...
