MSW Management: Safely Countering the Rise of Landfill Odors
One of the core challenges of landfill and compost site management is fighting the rise of foul odors. In addition, as communities expand further out from previous areas, they eventually become neighbors to landfills – calling for a comprehensive odor-control approach to countering odor complaints. In fact, compared to other industrial applications such as wastewater treatment and asphalt production, landfills face more challenges in fighting odors. Moisture, humidity, agitation, and summer temperature can...
How data and analytics are keeping Philly’s water safe
CH2M assisted Philadelphia to implement a Surveillance and Response System (SRS) demonstration project under the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) Water Security Initiative. CH2M Global Director Smart Cities and Senior Technology Fellow Dr. Avinash S. Patwardhan and Ken Thompson, CH2M Deputy Director Intelligent Water Solutions and Senior Technology Fellow, identify how big data was used in Philadelphia in order to keep water safe. Big data, analytics and city operationsCity operators...
Inactivation of E. coli by copper and silver wire in the presence of synthetic sunlight for safe ...
Bacterially-contaminated water is a major health concern leading to infectious diseases in emerging nations. The use of copper (Cu) and silver (Ag) wire independently, and Cu wire in combination with synthetic sunlight (SySu), were investigated as a low-cost water treatment method. Water inoculated with 1,100 colony forming units/mL of Escherichia coli was treated with one of these four treatments: (1) 50 cm2/L surface area (SA) pure Cu wire; (2) 37.8 W/m2 SySu irradiation; (3) a 50 cm2/L SA pure Cu wire combined...
Safe drinking water and waterborne outbreaks
The present work compiles a review on drinking waterborne outbreaks, with the perspective of production and distribution of microbiologically safe water, during 2000–2014. The outbreaks are categorised in raw water contamination, treatment deficiencies and distribution network failure. The main causes for contamination were: for groundwater, intrusion of animal faeces or wastewater due to heavy rain; in surface water, discharge of wastewater into the water source and increased turbidity and colour; at treatment...
Working safely around hazardous materials and contaminants
The first step in working safely around hazardous materials should always be a hazard assessment review. The OSHA standard mandates companies must conduct a hazard assessment to identify the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) and properly train employees on how to use it. OSHA compliance officers will review written hazard assessments for completeness and accuracy. In the case of water well drilling, this requires assessing the chemical, environmental, and physical hazards workers will have to deal...
