  • Proposed plans for UCMR Program

    At an April 2010 stakeholder’s meeting, the EPA discussed proposed plans for the third phase of the Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring Regulation (UCMR) program. If approved, approximately 4,800 public water utilities will be required to monitor up to 30 contaminants starting in 2013. The second phase of UCMR (UCMR 2) sampling, which began in 2008, concludes at the end of this year. UCMR 2 ...


  • The Asbestos Management and Maintenance Program

    STEP ONE: ASSESSMENT AND SURVEYThe first step of the Asbestos Management Program is to do an asbestos survey to assess the location, identify the type of asbestos, the condition of the asbestos and identify a maintenance record. This asbestos inventory or assessment is usually carried out by an independent consulting firm. This assessment or survey will include: Identification and location of the ...


  • Water quality monitoring with hydrolab MS5

    Background The Škocjan caves are a unique natural phenomenon located in south western Slovenia and are preserved as the Škocjan Caves Park under UNESCO protection. One of the most famous network of underground caves in the world, they were formed by the flow of the Reka River as it bored tunnels through the region’s limestone geology. The river first disappears underground just outside the ...

  • Water Distribution System Security Monitoring

    A water security instrument essentially needs to be able to detect potential contaminants in drinking water. Since a significant number of potential chemical contaminants are organic in nature, a water security monitoring instrument that can detect organic matter in water is perfect for this application. Real Tech has developed an instrument specifically designed for water security ...

  • Effectiveness of water saving devices and educational programs in urban buildings

    In this study different water saving measures (structural and non-structural) were implemented in different urban buildings. A monitoring program of water consumption was carried out to verify and compare the effectiveness of high-efficiency plumbing fixtures and educational programs in different types of buildings (two residential houses, two Middle Schools and two Sport Centres) located in a ...

  • The US EPA Lake Erie indicators monitoring program 1983 - 2002:trends in phosphorus, silica and chlorophyll a in the central basin.

    During the past 20 years, Lake Erie has exhibited a series of complex chemical changes resulting from changing anthropogenic influences and introductions of exotic species. Since 1990, some apparent trends in nutrient concentrations have been inconsistent with the predictions of models originally used to guide Lake Erie water quality management. We performed time trend analysis on total ...

  • Continuous water quality monitoring on Kolubara River

    The first automated station for water quality monitoring located in Beli Brod on the Kolubara river has launched on July 2008. The station was established as the result of RHMSS participation in Twinning project financed by EU, where RHMSS was entrusted with the Component 2 of this project. Installed equipment continually records values of water level, temperature, pH, electroconductivity and ...

  • Monitoring Strategies For Phytoplankton in The Baltic Sea Coastal Waters

    Phytoplankton monitoring in the Baltic Sea is to a large extent harmonised through the HELCOM COMBINE protocol. This ensures that the methods of sampling and analysis are quite similar and that data should be relatively comparable. There are differences in the spatial and temporal coverage of samples taken within the different monitoring programs. Moreover, within the national monitoring programs ...


  • The Effectiveness of Intrawell ground water monitoring statistics

    Abstract   The reality of the new statistical evaluation requirements for ground water at Subtitle D facilities are being felt nationwide. All too often these requirements are resulting in unnecessary increases in ground water monitoring costs and erroneous indications of facility impacts. For example, a common situation faced by many older facilities is that there is ...

  • Monitoring Water Quality Runoff From a Coalmine

    Intelligent Monitoring Solutions from dataTaker CAS DataLoggers provided the intelligent datalogging solution for an open-cut coalmine managing a high salinity water runoff into local retaining dams. The water from these dams could only be released into the local river system when it was of sufficient quality to have no effect on the irrigation of the surrounding farming district. ...

  • Topological clustering as a tool for planning water quality monitoring in water distribution networks

    Topological clustering was explored as a tool for water supply utilities in preparation of monitoring and contamination contingency plans. A complex water distribution network model of Copenhagen, Denmark, was simplified by topological clustering into recognizable water movement patterns to: (1) identify steady clusters for a part of the network where an actual contamination has occurred; (2) ...
