Tailwater Fishery Management Using a Fish Bioenergetics Model
Water releases from TVA reservoirs exert great influence on downstream water quality. Analytical tools to quantify biological response to altered environmental conditions, such as dissolved...

Effects of Climate Change on Water Quality
This research explores the potential effects of climate change on the quality of waters in lakes. Temperature and dissolved oxygen were considered the primary water quality variables due...

The Influence of Kiln Atmosphere on Clinker Characteristics

Optimization Studies of Anaerobic Expanded Bed Reactor Pretreatment of Domestic Wastewater
In recent years the advent of the anaerobic expanded bed reactor (AEBR) has made possible the treatment of wastewaters of comparatively lower strength than have traditionally been treated...

Field Test of Stormwater Best Management Practices

Effect of Roughness and Thickness of Biofilms on External Mass Transfer Resistance
The effect of roughness and thickness of biofilms on the dissolved oxygen (DO) concentration boundary layer thickness (DO CBLT) and the external mass transfer process in a biofilm system...

Effects of Molecular Oxygen and pH on the Adsorption of Aniline to Activated Carbon
This paper examines the influence of molecular oxygen and pH on the adsorption of aniline to F-300 Calgon Carbon. Molecular oxygen increased the adsorptive capacity of GAC for anilines...

Computer Aided Design of Trickling Filters

Development of a Model for the ABF/AS Process
A modelling approach has been established for the activated biofiltration/activated sludge (ABF/AS) process. This approach indicates that ABF/AS systems can be considered as a variation...

Modeling Full-Scale Diffused Aeration Systems
The purpose of this research was to show the direct relationship of the oxygen mass transfer coefficient (KLaT)...

The Sensitized Photocatalysis of a Mixed Reactant System of 4-Chlorophenol and 4-Nitrophenol
Sensitized photocatalysis has been demonstrated with colored pollutants such as nitrophenols. With visible light excitation of an adsorbed nitrophenolic compound, charge injection into...

NCASI Experiment Related to Validation of Equilibrium Partitioning (EP) Theory
A review of NCASI's technical studies related to evaluating equilibrium partitioning (EP) theory as it is commonly applied in regulatory setting is presented. Although interim results...

Testing Turbine Aeration for Dissolved Oxygen Enhancement
During August of 1993 the Bureau of Reclamation tested turbine aeration for dissolved oxygen (DO) enhancement at Deer Creek Powerplant near Provo, Utah. This test required a variety of...

Non-Point Pollution Loadings and their Impacts on Tennessee Valley Reservoirs
This is a three-year study which began in March 1992. The project has focused on inflow streams entering storage projects including Douglas, Cherokee, South Holston, Watauga, Norris, Chatuge,...

Salinity and Dissolved-Oxygen Dynamics in a Wind-Driven Estuary
Water levels, near-surface and near-bottom salinities, and near-surface and near-bottom dissolved-oxygen concentrations were measured continuously in the Pamlico River estuary, North Carolina,...

Design and Testing of Two Ice-Preserving Winter Lake Aeration Systems
As part of an effort to achieve ice-preserving lake aeration for winterkill prevention, two non-mixing lake aeration systems were designed and field tested. Each creates a fish refuge...

Agitation Dredging Environmental Study

A Natural Cleanup
For almost 30 years, nonvolatile petroleum hydrocarbons from used motor oil, diesel, gasoline and other automotive fluids had been released to an oil sum at a truck-maintenance facility...

An Isolated Wetland Used for Stormwater Treatment
A marsh used for stormwater management showed gradually increasing levels of pH, dissolved oxygen and conductivity in the flow path. The system was especially effective in removing suspended...

Water Quality Model of the Chicago Waterway
In 1992, the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago (the District) developed a QUAL2E water quality model of the Chicago waterway and Upper Illinois waterway. The model...
