  • Water quality in the Arosa Bay

    Background One of the great impediments to further development of shellfish aquaculture in the north-west region of Spain isa perception that industry expansion and tourism could have negative environmental effects on the coastal waters. Especially the bay around Villagarcia de Arosa is very famous because of its excellent areas for shellfish farming. The government of Spain is ...

  • Ensuring Water Quality in Africa

    Water is essential for life, and “access to safe water is a fundamental human and, therefore, a basic human right.” With this statement and his address on World Water Day in 2001, United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan put a spotlight on what continues to be a global problem: clean water. This year completes the UN “Water for Life” international decade for ...

  • Water Quality Models

    ' In order to determine the impacts of a particular discharge on ambient water quality, it is usually necessary to model the diffusion and dispersion of the discharge in the relevant water body. The approach applies both to new discharges and to upgrading of existing sources. This note provides guidance on models that may be applicable in the context of typical Bank projects.' Introduction ...

  • Water quality monitoring in wetland ecosystems using microbial model communities

    This study reviews the concept of model communities for water quality assessment in aquatic ecosystems. The feeding habits of protozoans were used to unite species into functional, trophic groups. Colonising communities were dominated by bacterivorous Flagellate Species (Sf). A new Index of Periphyton Flagellates (IPF) as an indicator of the trophic status of a water-body was developed. ...

  • In-situ quality monitoring station in Lower Saxony

    Background 'Duemmer' is a shallow lake in the south-west of Lower Saxony; through the lake flows the river 'Hunte'. The catchment area spans 426 km2. With a surface of 12.4 km2 and an average depth of 1.1 m there is a water volume of approx. 14 million m3. Large parts of the lakeside are a nature reserve and the lake is a popular local recreation area. The lake suffers from strong nutrient ...

  • Advanced Water Quality Techniques Course

    Abstract:The development of a strategic water quality monitoring program is based on prioritizing risks to public safety and economic reality. The development of global standardized methods and protocols for automated water quality monitoring would facilitate international communication of water quality information and comparison of standardized methods and protocols. The three primary methods ...


  • Microtox and Deltatox bioassay technology – early warning systems for monitoring and evaluating drinking water quality placed on DHS approved products list for homeland security

    Microtox Bioassay technology was recently awarded the Designation and Certification as an ‘Approved Product for Homeland Security’ under the Support Anti-Terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies Act of 2002 (the SAFETY ACT), by the Department of Homeland Security, DHS. Accordingly, Microtox has been placed on the “Approved Products List for Homeland Security.” The EPA ...


  • 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 ...

  • Water microbial quality during drinking water treatment technology and distribution provided by two Romanian companies

    Under European Economic Area Agreement, Romania and Norway have developed a project for monitoring the quality of raw and potable water (from production technology until distribution) supplied by two Romanian water companies. In the present study was investigated the microbiological quality of water, which was compared with organic matter loads. Resulting free chlorine and trihalomethane ...

  • Monitor Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) with PPM Technology’s IAQ Monitor

    Volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) are emitted as gases from certain solids or liquids. VOCs include a variety of chemicals, some of which may have short- and long-term adverse health effects. Concentrations of many VOCs are consistently higher indoors (up to ten times higher) than outdoors. VOC’s is one of numerous sensor options that can be incorporated into PPM Technology’s ...

  • Assessing and monitoring agroenvironmental determinants of recreational freshwater quality using remote sensing

    Diverse fecal and nonfecal bacterial contamination and nutrient sources (e.g. agriculture, human activities and wildlife) represent a considerable non-point source load entering natural recreational waters which may adversely affect water quality. Monitoring of natural recreational water microbial quality is most often based mainly on testing a set of microbiological indicators. The cost and ...

  • Relating water quality monitoring to disinfection by-product formation in four pilot treatment streams

    With increasing focus on the health implications from disinfection by-products (DBP) in drinking waters, appropriate monitoring parameters are required that can give rapid information on the potential of a treated water to form DBPs. Given that the most effective strategy for the reduction of concentrations of DBPs is the removal of their precursor, natural organic matter, parameters that relate ...
