  • Nanobite bioremediates a Contaminated harbour - Case study

    When a hydrocarbon is spilled on water, it is very visible – floating on the surface, a blue green sheen clearly visible. When applied to an oil spill on water, Nanobite Liquid will not mix with the water and become diluted. Within a minute it attaches to the hydrocarbon, bonding with it and creating a matrix – an agglomerated gel- that remains on the surface and cannot sink, no ...

  • Case study - Continuous discharge monitoring in Mecklenburg - Germany

    The Wallensteingraben was originally constructed as a channel and is almost 20 km long. In the context of implementing the European Water Framework Directive, goals include improving ecological passability. At the same time a measurement site for the continuous monitoring of discharge quantities was installed.  Products used include OTT SLD, OTT CBS and OTT LogoSens. Monitoring ...

  • Case study - Flood water protection in the city of Buenos Aires

    The Arroyo Mendrano is the second largest channeled stream of water running through Buenos Aires. In case of heavy rainfalls it overflows its banks and causes considerable material damage. When the retention basin which had been especially built to collect large quantities of water during strong precipitation events also overflowed, the government decided to have an alarm-system installed to ...

  • Case study - Reservoir Aabach Germany - Continuous monitoring of contact pressure

    With a total volume of approximately 20 million cubic meters of water and a length of 450 meters, the reservoir supplies drinking water for 200.000 people in the area and fulfils also an important  function in the flood protection there. With the new monitoring solution it was possible to reduce the workload and cost for collecting, reading out and transmitting of data significantly. An ...

  • Online Total Bacteria Monitor compared with ATP and flow cytometry

    Alkaline Phosphatase Enzyme Activity Measurement as a Robust on-line Monitoring Assay for Water Quality Assessment. Micro organisms maintain their growth by producing enzymes in order to provide low molecular weight inorganic compounds. These compounds could be taken up into the cells from high molecular weight organic compounds which cannot be directly utilized by bacteria. Microbial ...

  • Data reconstruction of flow time series in water distribution systems – a new method that accommodates multiple seasonality

    The purpose of this paper is to present a simple yet highly effective method to reconstruct missing data in flow time series. The presence of missing values in network flow data severely restricts their use for an adequate management of billing systems and for network operation. Despite significant technology improvements, missing values are frequent due to metering, data acquisition and ...

  • Combating river pollution in China and India: policy measures and governance challenges

    Severe water pollution is among the top policy priorities in both China and India. This paper undertakes a comparative case analysis to examine efforts in combating river pollution in two major rivers – the Yangtze in China and the Ganga in India. Our analysis suggests that efforts in combating river pollution in the two Asian giants have encountered substantial challenges, such as the lack of ...

  • Large Precipitation Events are Critical in Replenishing Groundwater Resources

    Large precipitation events that occur about every 10 years are a critical source of recharge for replenishing groundwater resources, according to a new study by the U.S. Geological Survey and the Bureau of Reclamation. Groundwater is a vital source of water in the western United States, and will be increasingly ...

  • Sulfate-Enhanced bioremediation of BTEX - Case Study

    Problem A former gas station in North Carolina contaminated groundwater with BTEX from a UST basin. The site is now in the median of a busy four-lane highway. Residents within 250 feet of the site use an irrigation well, prompting the need to conduct proactive remedial action. Site conditions of sand and clay above partially weathered bedrock and depleted sulfate concentrations within the ...

  • Data analytics methodology for monitoring quality sensors and events in the Barcelona drinking water network

    Water quality management is a key area to guarantee drinking water safety to users. This task is based on disinfection techniques, such as chlorination, applied to the drinking water network to prevent the growth of microorganisms present in the water. The continuous monitoring of water quality parameters is fundamental to assess the sanitary conditions of the drinking water and to detect ...

  • Phenanthrene removal from liquid medium with emphasis on production of biosurfactant

    In the current study, there are some considerable issues which focused on: (1) the production of biosurfactant, (2) its correlation with the initial bacterial inoculum in the liquid phase and (3) its effect on polycyclic hydrocarbon (PAH) bioremediation performance. Therefore, two strains Pseudomonas facilis and Pseudomonas spp. were able to form a large clear zone diameter ...

  • Association between heavy precipitation events and waterborne outbreaks in four Nordic countries, 1992–2012

    We conducted a matched case-control study to examine the association between heavy precipitation events and waterborne outbreaks (WBOs) by linking epidemiological registries and meteorological data between 1992 and 2012 in four Nordic countries. Heavy precipitation events were defined by above average (exceedance) daily rainfall during the preceding weeks using local references. We performed ...
