  • Arsenic and Bladder Cancer: Observations and Suggestions

    Arsenic from drinking water is a well-known risk factor for bladder cancer. The purpose of this paper is to systematize some important yet often overlooked facts considering the relationship between arsenic exposure and the occurrence of bladder cancer. Since the exposure to inorganic arsenic from food, inhaled air, and skin absorption as well as arsenic methylation ability are not fully ...

  • Severe Drought and Collapsible Water Storage Tanks and Pillow Bladders

    The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Drought Monitor has recently published information indicating that up to 95 percent of Texas is experiencing either "severe" or "exceptional" drought conditions this year. According to the National Weather Service, Texas experienced the hottest period (June through August 2011) on record in the U.S. In addition, the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) ...

  • Health effects of disinfection by-products in Australian drinking waters

    The disinfection of drinking water has greatly diminished the occurrence of diseases known to be caused by water-borne pathogens, but technological advances subsequent to the initial discovery of chloroform in 1974 have enabled the identification of a plethora of Disinfection By-Products (DBPs), particularly trihalomethanes (THMs), that may have injurious health effects on humans. DBPs are widely ...

  • NoiseNews: Something Fishy Going on in British Waters?

    The seas around Britain may be getting too noisy. So noisy in fact that fish species such as cod and haddock are having difficulty communicating with each other. If their chatter is being obscured, it could affect their ability to breed at a time when stock numbers are recovering. It has long been recognised that large marine mammals are susceptible to noise pollution – as ...

  • Water and your health fact sheet

    Water is a vital nutrient, essential to every single chemical process that occurs in our bodies. Water makes up two-thirds of the human body, and 75 percent of the human brain is water. Staying adequately hydrated allows our bodies to function as best they can, yet nearly 75 percent of Americans are chronically dehydrated without ever knowing it. Everyone understands the importance of drinking ...

  • Solutions for removing arsenic from drinking water

    Arsenic, a metalloid element, is found in many naturally occurring compounds. In its inorganic form, arsenic is toxic. Arsenic occurs naturally in some groundwater supplies worldwide, including in the drinking water supplies in parts of Taiwan, Japan, Bangladesh, and western South America. This is causing health problems, according to the American Cancer Society. Albuquerque, New Mexico, is the ...

  • Avoid Hurricane Tragedies by Storing Potable Water

    In the aftermath of Hurricane Maria more than half of Puerto Ricans lacked access to potable water. Since Puerto Rico is an island, supplies couldn’t simply be shipped over land. With ports and airfields damaged, supplies were slow to reach those in need. When Hurricane Irma hit Florida and Hurricane Harvey slammed into Texas, many people and organizations also found themselves scrambling ...

  • Evaluation of Sampling and Field-Filtration Methods for the Analysis of Trace Metals in Ground Water

    Selected ground water sampling and field-filtration methods were evaluated to determine their effects on field parameters and trace metal concentrations in samples collected under several types of field conditions. The study focused on conditions where traditional approaches may produce turbid samples, which often leads to filtration of suspended particles from the sample before laboratory ...

  • 40 years on: what do we know about drinking water disinfection by-products (DBPs) and human health?

    2014 marks the 40th anniversary of the seminal discovery by Johannes Rook, in 1974, that trihalomethanes (THMs) were formed by the chlorination of natural organic matter (NOM) in drinking water. Since this discovery, which revolutionized how we viewed drinking water safety and quality, hundreds of other classes of disinfection by-products (DBPs) have been discovered. The finding in 1976 by the ...

  • How Installing Arsenic Drinking Water Treatment Can Save Your Life

    Arsenic is an element so associated with its toxicity and harmful effects on the human body that the word itself is often used for any kind of general poison. While the exact ways that exposure to the metalloid attacks various organs and systems is still not fully understood, studies throughout the scientific community are continually determining that ingesting arsenic through drinking water can ...

  • Residents of a Florida trailer park think their contaminated water made them sick

    Allan Payan lifts a photograph from a shelf inside his singlewide trailer home. The smiling woman in the image has full cheeks and long, thick, brown hair. Caroll Payan, who sits across the couch from him, can't bear to look at the old photo of herself. She has dropped 20 pounds in the past six months, and it shows in her tall, wiry frame. Her green eyes now bulge under heavy lids on a gaunt ...

  • Decontaminating Groundwater Sampling Devices

    These studies are the second part of a two year project that examines decontaminating groundwater sampling devices. In the first year, the efficiency of various decontamination protocols was tested using small test pieces of materials that are commonly used in groundwater sampling devices. Those tests showed that a hot detergent wash and rinse followed by hot air drying (105°C) was the most ...

  • A method for reducing purge volumes in deep monitoring wells: a purging experiment.

    Regulatory agencies often require three well casing volumes or more be purged prior to collection of groundwater samples for chemical analysis. Costs are high for testing and disposing of potentially hazardous purge water; therefore, efforts must be made to minimize waste-water volume while obtaining representative groundwater samples. Lockheed sponsored a purge experiment on two deep monitor ...

  • Latex Paint Manufacturer-2

    This company was using traditional chemistry of aluminum sulfate, lime to adjust the pH, followed by a flocculant. Switching to Floccin 1107 cut the chemical costs by 30% and decreased the number of chemicals to one. The facility was also using large quantities of DE to generate a dry cake with their bladder press. The Floccin 1107 decreased the usage of the DE by about 50% based on the visual ...

  • Filtronics Electromedia® Removes Arsenic From 150 ppb to Below 3 ppb

    Arizona State Highways 85 and 86 meet in Pima County in southwestern Arizona. The intersection used to form a “Y” and gave birth to a town name. The unusual name comes from a state law that required town names have three letters, so “Y” became Why. What’s not so unusual is that the town of Why, like many Arizona communities, has high levels of arsenic in their well ...
