On-Line Cyanobacteria Monitoring in Source Water Treatment

On-Line Cyanobacteria Monitoring in Source Water Treatment | Water quality | Scoop.it
Cyanobacteria, more commonly known as blue-green algae, can impact water quality be releasing toxins that can be harmful to life and impart unpleasant taste and odor. The Linkage Project supports the water industry in managing these risks by providing a rapid, on-line tool to assist in the early detection and removal during water treatment.

BOURNE, Mass. — Buzzards Bay Coalition monitoring data show that the health
of Red Brook Harbor has been impaired since the late 1990s. Since 2000, the
harbor's health has been in steady decline, largely because of nitrogen
pollution from septic systems.

Making Lake George the Most Understood Lake on the Planet

Making Lake George the Most Understood Lake on the Planet | Water quality | Scoop.it
Most people have no reason to be at the Mossy Point launch in winter, but Kalyadin was part of the Jefferson Project, a multimillion-dollar effort aimed at making Lake George the most measured and best understood body of water on the planet. The effort was launched in 2013 by computing giant IBM, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and lake advocacy group Fund for Lake George. About 20 miles south in Bolton Landing, Rick Relyea sat in comfortable new conference room at RPI's Darrin Freshwater Institute, using a massive video screen to demonstrate what is called the "data visualization laboratory." Here is where lake, stream and weather data drawn from a network of up to 40 sensors, once crunched in massive computers, will be turned into graphic displays to explain how the 32-mile lake behaves and how it might change if some troubling trends continue. The Bolton center will be linked to an IBM supercomputer in Fishkill, Dutchess County, that can perform 188 trillion operations per second as it tracks a steady stream of data coming in from the sensor network. New knowledge will eventually help create solutions to rising threats to the lake stemming from human activity, like the introduction of invasive species carried on boats, build-up of algae fueled by lawn fertilizers or sewage, and saltier water caused by the runoff of road salt. If those numbers continue and lake water clouds, the lake's $1 billion tourism industry and its valuable real estate market could suffer. At the Fund for Lake George offices on Route 9 in the village, Director Eric Siy demonstrated a smaller version of the video display screen used in Darrin. Crews used boats to drop in three lake-bottom sensors that will remain, even after the lake is frozen, to record data showing how water is moving. The science that comes out of the Jefferson Project will help the Lake George Park Commission — a state agency responsible for the lake — to make better decisions, said commission Chairman Bruce Young.

Jada Williams's curator insight, November 20, 2014 6:15 PM

In Dayton there was a city hall meeting where residents told about their opinions. They feel as though the policies that are being changed shouldn't be changed. They should stay in their original form but besides that the article was interesting but could've had better pictures. And had a little more past history about the recent policies.

In this article they believe that EPA isn't serious about the new Clean Water Act because they aren't taking it serious. There are few cities that meet the requirements for the new act and believe don't aren't following this new act to begin with. So because of this problem in New Jersey they have planned to assess the water and get it purified since it failed almost all of the tests that it went under in order to clarify if the water met the requirements and was clean, but wasn't , Far from it..
