  • Water associations challenge EPA steam power plant rule

    In a brief filed Monday in the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, the American Water Works Association and the National Association of Water Companies challenged a new rule on steam power plant discharges, arguing that it does not adequately protect drinking water consumers. In challenging the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s final Effluent Limitation Guidelines for ...

  • Measuring water from space

    Observations from satellites now allow scientists to monitor changes to water levels in the sea, in rivers and lakes, in ice sheets and even under the ground. As the climate changes, this information will be crucial for monitoring its effects and predicting future impacts in different regions. Sea level rise in one of the major consequences of global warming, but it is much more difficult to ...

  • Measurement of lime levels in drinking water & wastewater

    As lime is a product derived from the Earth, it is fitting that many of its uses also benefit the Earth. In fact, the second leading use of lime is in environmental applications, including drinking water and wastewater. OPTIFLEX is widely used to indicate lime levels in storage silos. It usually replaces non-reliable ultrasonic or electromechanical systems that are expensive to maintain. Lime ...


  • EPA and Utilities to Promote Water Performance Measures for Utilities

    (Washington, D.C.) EPA Assistant Administrator for Water Benjamin H. Grumbles has signed a statement of support with six national associations to promote recommended utility performance measures and encourage the use of these tools and 10 management attributes by utilities around the country.  The '10 Attributes of Effectively Managed Water Sector Utilities' provide a reference point for ...

  • Satellite measurements show hidden water content of snow

    As spring arrives, many people are generally interested in the snow vanishing. Others are more interested in the water that is stored in the snow layer. Satellite measurements can show the extent and water content of the snow coverage, and where it will melt. Scientists from SMHI are part of a European research project aiming to develop new, simpler ways of using satellite data about snow and ...

  • New ways of measuring our water environment

    General Quality Assessment figures from the Environment Agency released this week show that 76 per cent of all UK rivers in the UK achieved ‘good’ or better status for chemical water quality in 2007. From 2008, the new European Water Framework Directive replaces General Quality Assessment,  which means that the way of measuring the quality of our water bodies has changed. As well as rivers, ...

  • Mobile Discharge Measurement with SOMMER TQ-Tracer System

    Monitoring turbulent rivers with unknown cross-section profiles Sommer GmbH adds a new technology to discharge measurement devices. Discharge measurement of rivers, irrigation channels or technical canals is daily business for hydrologists worldwide. The Sommer TQ tracer system offers new capabilities where conventional equipment, such as mechanical flow meter or ADCP boats, fails. ...

  • Sustainable management of water in an arid region: water supply measures compared

    Water shortages in water stressed regions can be alleviated by building large infrastructures, such as water transfer systems or saltwater desalination plants, which increase the supply of water. However, a new study, which compares the environmental impact of water supply alternatives in a region of Spain, concludes that reducing water use, rather than increasing supplies, is a more sustainable ...

  • ABLE measures capital flow

    ABLE is pleased to announce the order award by Morgan Est for flow metering systems in the Thames Water London Ring Main extension. The Ring Main was built to improve the speed and efficiency of moving drinking water throughout the capital. The current ring main is 50 miles long and runs underneath London at an average depth of 40 metres. The tunnel is wide enough to allow a car to pass through ...

  • Measuring global soil changes

    Global change is increasingly affecting important terrestrial ecosystem functions such as the filtering and buffering capacity of soils, the supply of clean water, soil fertility, and consequently, the production of food, feed, and fiber. Recent studies and reports from the United Nations indicate that water and soil resources are both heavily under pressure. Worldwide about 2 billion ha of land ...

  • Extreme Mining Extreme Measures

    Undoubtedly, the biggest challenge of deep level mining is providing a safe environment for miners. Today, gold and platinum mines descend as far as 5km below surface in some cases. In this extreme environment, virgin rock temperatures often exceed 60°C, requiring sophisticated cooling methods and equipment to reduce temperatures to safe levels for miners to work in. Due to the ...

  • Water Quality System

    Let me explain that our basic idea is how better to use the not many typologies (and parameters) of on-line sensors available on market to make low-cost sustainable intelligent monitoring. We all know that the total water quality is related to about fifty of quality measurement analytic parameters, but on-site and in on-line way, it is possible to detect only about ten electro-chemical or ISE ...
