Pharmaceuticals in processing of municipal sewage sludge studied by grab and passive sampling
Concentrations of pharmaceuticals, consisting of four anti-inflammatory and one antiepileptic drug, were studied in the aqueous and solid phase of municipal sewage sludge, collected from a ...
Development of a preconcentration method for indomethacin in natural waters using dispersive liquid–liquid microextraction based on solidification of floating organic drop technique
A new dispersive liquid–liquid microextraction method based on the solidification of a floating organic drop was developed for the preconcentration of indomethacin in natural waters followed by ...
Water quality prediction using machine learning methods
This study investigates the performance of artificial intelligence techniques including artificial neural network (ANN), group method of data handling (GMDH) and support vector machine (SVM) for ...
Modelling of biochemical oxygen demand from limited water quality variable by ANFIS using two partition methods
This paper aims to: (1) develop models based on adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system (ANFIS) able to predict five-day biochemical oxygen demand (BOD5) in Ouizert reservoir; (2) demonstrate the ...
Biofiltration field study for cold Fe(II)- and Mn(II)-rich groundwater: accelerated Mn(II) removal kinetics and cold-adapted Mn(II)-oxidizing microbial populations
Removal of Mn(II) from Fe(II)- and Mn(II)-rich groundwater in cold regions is challenging, due to slow Mn(II) removal kinetics below 15 °C. This study demonstrated onset, acclimation, and ...
SWAT modeling of hydrology, sediment and nutrients from the Grand River, Ontario
The Grand River watershed (GRW) is an important agricultural area in Southern Ontario. Land use has been modified by various human endeavors, altering hydrology and increasing export of sediment ...
Development of an in-stream environmental exposure model for assessing down-the-drain chemicals in Southern Ontario
In order to address increased interest from scientists and regulators in quantifying environmental risks associated with release of common down-the-drain consumer products, a single-medium ...
Biofiltration optimization: phosphorus supplementation effects on disinfection byproduct formation potential
This study investigates the effects of phosphorus supplementation on the formation potential of total trihalomethanes (TTHMfp) and five species of haloacetic acids (HAA5fp) during exposure to ...
Adsorption behavior of phosphate on anion-functionalized nanoporous polymer
An anion-functionalized nanoporous polymer was successfully prepared by quaternary ammonization and anion-exchange treatment method. The polymer was characterized by scanning electron microscopy, ...
Examining the emerging environmental protection policy convergence in the Ontario municipal drinking water, wastewater and stormwater sectors
This study examines the governance approaches applying to Ontario's municipal water management activities and observes an environmental policy convergence occurring in two different dimensions: ...
