  • Real Time TOC Analysis in Steam and Condensate

    Executive Summary Steam in petro/chemical plants could be contaminated with hydrocarbons (TOC = Total Organic Carbons) from various sources. In any case this is a sign for defects in the process, whether it they occur in the heat exchanger, the blow down vessel, the condensate recovery or other parts of the system. Conventional solutions to monitor such contaminations use TOC- ...

  • Monitoring Flow Rate in a Channel to Minimize Water Pollution

    Recently a wastewater management district in Cleveland contacted CAS DataLoggers to supply an automated monitoring solution for their environmental project. In most cities, sanitary sewers and storm sewers were separate, so that storm water was diverted into a nearby lake. However, Cleveland had only one sewer available, so all of the flow went to the ...

  • Pollutant monitoring in sludge treatment wetlands

    Phragmites australis for sludge dewatering and stabilization processes have been widely proved. The presence of reeds, indeed, efficiently allows solids dewatering and organic matter stabilization in order to obtain a stabilised product that can be suitable for land application, even if its environmental impact has to be considered. The actual revision of the European Union's Working Document on ...

  • Comparison of Monitoring Approaches for Selected Priority Pollutants in Surface Water

    1 AbstractLaboratories from seven EU Member States under the coordination of the Joint Research Centre and in collaboration with the Provincia di Ferrara participated in a technical on-site project during which sampling and analytical methodologies for chemical monitoring according to proposed WFD provisions have been compared. Laboratories had been invited to take samples from a river according ...


  • Using UV Fluorescence technology to monitor for organic pollutants in Flood Water

    For many years the water industry has relied on traditional sampling techniques to monitor water quality in a wide range of environments.  Traditional tests such as BOD, PH, Dissolved Oxygen and Ammonia have formed the bedrock of monitoring parameters.  There is however other ways to establish water quality and UV fluorescence offers an up to date solution for the investigation of ...

  • Monitoring of phytoplankton biomass and nutrients in a polluted stream

    The spatial and temporal variations in the concentrations of nutrients (NH4+, NO2−, PO43−, SiO4−) and chlorophyll a were monitored simultaneously in a slow-flowing watercourse (Saricay Stream, Turkey), which runs in a ruralurban gradient. Chlorophyll a concentrations ranged between 0.044 g l-1 and 206.15 g l-1 and, in general, the higher concentrations of chlorophyll a and ammonium were measured ...

  • Oil on Water Monitoring

    Northern Ireland Water operate a number of potable water plants around Lough Erne and the River Derg, these waterways are extremely popular with tourists and are used for pleasure crafts of various sizes, from jetskis to fully fitted 6 berth cruisers. These watercraft create an ongoing risk of floating oil from poorly maintained engines, as the watercraft have access to within 10 metres of the ...

  • Water quality assessment of a polluted urban river

    Urban rivers in Latin America are heavily impacted by human activities that affect their functions and services. This paper shows the results of a water quality assessment for the Reconquista River, the second most polluted urban river in Argentina. They allowed the identification of the main processes of transport of pollutants and the prioritisation of different areas of the basin for ...

  • River water pollution in Indonesia: an input-output analysis

    Data from global environmental monitoring activities have shown alarming environmental conditions in many developing countries. Environmental policies that could improve the environment significantly, while at the same time maintaining the growth of economic activities are needed. Using an input-output analysis, this paper researches such policies with a view to applying them to Indonesia's river ...

  • Oil pollution in the Caspian Sea coastal waters

    The study aims to investigate hydrocarbon and pollutant concentrations in the southern coastal waters of the Caspian Sea to trace their origins and nature, including the effect of the beach materials on hydrocarbons for 11 sites in Golestan, Mazandaran, and Guilan provinces. Samples were collected from sandy and rocky sites for gas chromatography in five carbon ranges of gasoline, diesel oil, ...

  • A new online monitoring and management system for accidental pollution events developed for the regional water basin in Ningbo, China

    Due to urgency of the accidental pollution events (APE) on one side and the variability in water quality data on the other side, a new online monitoring and management system (OMMS) was developed for the purpose of sustainable water quality management and human health protection as well. The Biological Early Warning System (BEWS) based on the behavioral responses (behavior strength) of medaka ...

  • Specificity of a defined substrate method used to monitor balneability of tropical coastal waters impacted by polluted stormwater

    Defined substrate (DS) is an alternative technique to monitoring the water quality based on species-specific enzyme activity. Although more sensitive and more specific than traditional media, there is some controversy over use in the warmer waters of tropical and subtropical environments, rich in organic matter and microorganism groups capable of interfering with results. The aim of this study ...

  • Microbiological pollution of surface water in the upper–middle basin of the Reconquista river (Argentina): 2010–2011 monitoring

    A microbiological monitoring was conducted on the water at six locations of the Reconquista river, a polluted peri–urban water body of Argentina. Samples were taken from surface water of three tributary streams in the dam outlet and 18 km downstream; samples from the sediments of one of the streams were also taken. For all samples the presence and quantity of coliform bacteria (total ...
