  • Successful trial for new remote Phosphate monitor

    Researchers at the UK’s Centre for Ecology & Hydrology (CEH) have conducted trials on the river Thames to evaluate a new remote phosphate monitoring technology (Cycle-P) as part of a high-frequency (hourly resolution) monitoring programme that is studying river nutrient concentrations and how they are affected by algal abundance. The monitoring system ran continuously over the summer of ...

  • Estuary research project highlights advantages of continuous monitoring

    Researchers from the south coast of England have established a small network of monitoring instruments in Christchurch Harbour and associated rivers to study the effects of weather events on water quality, and to better understand the magnitude and spatial/temporal variation of macronutrient fluxes - nitrogen (N), carbon (C) and phosphorus (P). The project, which is financed by a Natural ...

  • SMHI and SYKE in Finland enter a unique collaboration on marine environmental monitoring

    SMHI and SYKE, the Finnish Environment Institute, have begun a close collaboration to monitor the marine environment of the Baltic and the North Sea. “It is unique for two countries to sign an agreement in this way, but we are leading a trend that the EU and the global organization ICES would like to see going forward. As a combined force we can improve the monitoring of the acute problems ...

  • At annual swim event in Charles river, yearly water quality remains good; EPA grade from 2010 monitoring: B+

    As local residents eager to reestablish swimming in the Charles River held an annual swim event, EPA announced a grade of “B+” reflecting monitoring data that showed that during 2010, the Charles River continued to have acceptable water quality for boating and swimming. This progress is thanks to the intensive Clean Charles Initiative began in 1995. EPA’s grade of B+ for the ...

  • 20 years of monitoring provides insight into New Zealand`s river water quality

    Two decades of monitoring of river water quality by NIWA has provided important information that is helping to care for New Zealand’s iconic rivers. More than 18 000 river water samples have been collected by New Zealand’s National Rivers Water Quality Network (NRWQN) over the past 20 years to monitor river conditions. The Network, which was set up to detect trends and conditions in water ...

  • Water Clears in Southeast`s Largest Lake

    Without hurricanes to disturb it, water quality in the largest freshwater lake in the southeastern United States has improved substantially over the past two years, according to the South Florida Water Management District's most recent water quality data.

  • Integrated water management helps control agricultural pollution

    By 2015, all surface waters and groundwaters in the European Union should aim to achieve 'good status', with healthy ecosystems and low levels of pollution. The goals for the management of these bodies of water are set out under the Water Framework Directive1. Recent research suggests that integrated management of water catchment areas could be used to control sources of pollution within river ...

  • Ohio offers $150M in no-interest water plant loans
