  • What does Vienna’s water supply have to do with the snow depth of the Alps?

    The water supply of the city of Vienna stems from high-source water pipelines of the Lower Austrian-Styrian Alps. Here, snow depth measurements play a major role. In the following, we explain, why this is so relevant and how it is monitored… The snow depth is not only important in ski resorts. Experts estimate that up to 50 percent of annual precipitation falls ...

  • What does Vienna’s water supply have to do with the snow depth in the Alps?

    Lots of snow, but only a few measuring stations Where most of the snow falls, which is the case in difficult-to-reach mountains, there are exceedingly few measuring stations. Experts estimated that up to 50 percent of the annual precipitation in Austria is expected to be snow in the Austrian Alps. Apart from individual mountain stations, many measuring devices are located in the valley ...

  • Pilot Study at Activated Sludge Plant Shows that Ozonation of Filamentous Sludge Is Very Effective - Case study

    At Öresundsverket WWTP in Helsingborg, Sweden, they have problems with filamentous sludge during springtime, as do many other activated sludge plants. With ozonation of the return sludge flow Öresundsverket has drastically reduced the amount of filamentous sludge and significantly increased the quality of the water – and this without any negative impact on the nitrification or the ...

  • Effects of sulfate and nitrate on the taste of water: a study with a trained panel

    The role of sulfate and nitrate in the taste of drinking water is not entirely clear. Taste threshold concentrations (TTCs) were estimated for these two species by the 3-AFC method by a trained panel, as sodium and calcium salts. In both cases TTCs for nitrate were about 100 mg NO3/L, twice the usual reference value of international recommendations. TTCs for sulfate were about 160 mg ...
