  • City of Montebello Sewer Master Planning Utilizing Innovative GIS Solutions

    City of Montebello wanted to implement a comprehensive sewer master plan. At the same time they wanted to embark on implementing a GIS program. The solution was to combine the two and utilize the power and versatility of GIS as the core technology for performing the sewer master plan. In this paper we will show how the City accomplished its primary objectives which included: Modernizing its ...

  • The utility of molecular markers for Barley net blotch resistance across geographic regions

    Molecular marker technology shows potential to select and combine favorable alleles via genotypic selection and can be used to develop improved crop cultivars with considerable resource savings. In the present investigation, the utility of molecular markers for net blotch resistance identified in Australian breeding material was investigated for Canadian breeding material. Screening 42 Canadian, ...

  • Characterization of Fugitive Emissions of Greenhouse Gases from a Wastewater Treatment Plant Using The Radial Plume Mapping Technique

    An existing anaerobic wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) near Bucaramanga, Colombia is being upgraded to include nitrification/denitrification and improvements in capture and recovery of methane. The existing plant utilizes upflow anaerobic sludge blanket (UASB) reactors followed by facultative lagoons. For this project, the UASB reactors will be retrofit to maximize the collection of biogas, and ...

  • Tagging and mapping Pse-1 gene for resistance to halo blight in common bean differential cultivar UI-3

    Halo blight [caused by Pseudomonas syringae pv. phaseolicola (Burkh.) Young et al. (Psp)] is a serious seed-borne bacterial disease of common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.). A few resistance (R) genes and quantitative trait loci provide control to one or more races of the pathogen. To better understand monogenic resistance and improve breeding efficiency, we sought to tag and map a gene (Pse-1) in ...

  • Automated Treatment System Used to Solve a Costly and Environmentally Critical Wastewater Problem for an East Coast Utility

    BACKGROUND Hydrocarbon and particulate contamination in wastewater is a well-known environmental hazard.  Due to tightening environmental regulations, an ever-increasing source of such contamination in major cities comes from water collected from underground utility vaults and manhole water.  This contaminated water, contains a smorgasbord of potential contaminants from transformers, ground ...

  • An improved method for determining microbially available phosphorus in drinking water

    Microbially available phosphorus (MAP) is the labile phosphorus that is readily assimilated by microorganisms, which is linearly correlated to bacterial re-growth in drinking water in some regions. The conventional MAP bioassay for drinking water was originally developed by Markku based on the growth potential of Pseudomonas fluorescens P17 (P17). However, the bioassay bears some demerits, ...

  • Development of Site-wide Energy Strategies

    Pinch Analysis has been applied to individual processes routinely since the early 1980s. The composite curves of the process define the minimum heating and cooling demands while the grand composite curve further illustrates how the heating and cooling is best applied, utility level by utility level. One of the many specific benefits of this technique is therefore to identify the most appropriate ...
