Details

Potassium Permanganate (KMnO4) is a strong oxidizer used in the water industry for reduction of organics in raw water. It is also used for control of zebra mussel problems at raw water intake structures. Continuous monitoring of low permanganate concentrations allows operators to adjust chemical feed rates and achieve target values. Chemical feed problems that result in either too little or too much residual can be quickly identified and corrected.
 
The Q46H/83 eliminates this problem by employing a measurement method in which the sensor never comes into contact with the sample. In operation, water containing permanganate is mixed with pH buffer and potassium iodide solutions. Permanganate oxidizes the iodide to iodine (I2), and the resulting I2 is stripped out of solution and measured using an I2 gas sensor. This “gas phase” measurement  technique eliminates MnO2 sensor fouling, resulting in a system capable of providing long term reliability.

The Q46H/83 Permanganate monitor consists of two main components, an electronic display unit and a chemistry module.  The  chemistry module contains sample and reagent pumps, sample handling systems, and the gas sensor that provides the final measurement.  An inlet overflow assembly attached to the bottom of the chemistry module is where the inlet sample line and drain line are connected.  Sample inlet flows of 250-100 ml./min. are recommended to keep system response time to a minimum.  Reagent bottle holders are supplied so that reagents can be wall mounted below the chemistry system.

Guardians of the Riverbank: Planting Trees to Protect Water Quality and Wildlife

In fall of 2017, the Connecticut River Conservancy (CRC) along with their project partners improved more than 9,000 feet of riverbank by planting 5,690 native trees and shrubs to protect the Connecticut River and its tributaries. The trees now guard against erosion and pollution on seven farms in New Hampshire and Vermont, and expand the existing habitat for local wildlife. This kind of project is part of CRC's core work. In August of 2011, Hurricane Irene roared up the East Coast of the United States, leaving a tell-tale path of destruction behind. Listed as the eighth-costliest hurricane in American history, the storm also hurt the watershed of the Connecticut River.

University of Toronto Doctoral Student Sees Environmental Monitoring Future in Internet of Things

Researchers face many difficulties. Assessing the ecological health of large geographic regions, especially those with a low population and few research facilities, is one of the many challenges scientists face. One such region is the Ottawa River in Canada, nearly 800 miles long with an overall drainage area of 55,000 square miles. Not only is it vast, but there are few human inhabitants and few research outposts. While gathering representative water samples in such a region is difficult enough, there is also the challenge of responding in a timely manner when problems arise.

Minnesota Water Quality Certification Program Encourages Sustainable Farming Practices

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) , agriculture is the leading probable source of impairments to assessed streams and rivers in the United States, and the third probable source to lakes. Agricultural impairments, typically considered nonpoint source pollution, include irrigation and stormwater runoff that carries animal waste, bacteria, fertilizer, naturally occurring metals, nutrients, pesticides, excess salt, and sediment. Unfortunately, this has at times positioned farmers—a group which has the most to gain from water quality initiatives—at odds with environmental agencies and scientists.
