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.
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the City of San Antonio and the San Antonio River Authority (SARA) have launched a collaborative Urban Waters Project in the US.The project intends to...
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.
Stormwater monitoring doesn't have to be an overwhelming undertaking for your organization. Register and watch the webinar here with YSI Systems and SonTek to learn about what you need (and don't need) to start a stormwater monitoring program.
The Crooked Creek Watershed, located north of Fairbanks, runs through some 300 square miles of Alaska’s central interior. YSI sondes are monitoring water quality in this area and can even take serious flooding and continue to provide data.
