  • Legionella testing in Sea Water

    Several studies have shown that Legionella species survive in sea water even up to saline concentrations of 3% or more and in fact that NaCl may actually protect the bacterium at lower concentrations. R Heller and his colleagues state in a communication to the Letters in Applied Microbiology (1998 Jan;26(1):64-8) that: “The marked bacterial die-off, especially at higher temperatures, was ...

  • Field method developed for testing oil sheens on surface water using sheen nets

    A pipeline spill in Michigan contaminated a river with crude oil.  Almost one year later, oil sheens continued to be spotted on the river's surface, as do "bio sheens," which look like oil sheens but only contain biological, natural organic matter from leaves and other decomposing vegetation. The oil company's contractor collected samples from both contaminated and non-contamianted areas ...
