Dechlorination of wastewater effluent is common practice in many wastewater treatment facilities throughout the U.S. Strongly reducing sulfur compounds are used to eliminate chlorine residuals that might prove toxic to fish in the receiving stream. Because residual chlorine discharge limits are often very close to zero, monitoring residual values to comply with regulations has become very difficult, and controlling residuals at values between zero and 10 or 20 parts-per-billion is often not achievable.
To meet stringent discharge limits, the sulfite or bisulfite used for dechlorination is added in slight excess, providing a small sulfite residual to insure complete dechlorination. ATI’s Model Q46S/66 provides operators with a reliable tool for maintaining a small sulfite residual while reducing excess chemical consumption due to overfeed.

“Vog” is a word that few know and use. But for people living near Hawaii’s Kīlauea, it’s the perfect mashup to describe what they deal with everyday: volcanic smog.
Much of the vog that comes out of the volcano is comprised of sulfur dioxide, a compound toxic to humans and plants. It can react with components in the atmosphere to form sulfuric acid, a common component of acid rain. Particulate matter, water and carbon dioxide also float out of Kīlauea.
Scientists already know that some of those emissions are toxic. They look to study the volcano’s eruption because it is unique. Kīlauea has been erupting non-stop since 1983.Read More
Each year in Germany, as many as 450,000 living fish undergo live animal experiments to test how fish-friendly hydroelectric power plants in the country are. The idea is to discover how readily the fish can move through hydroelectric turbine installations in order to ultimately reduce mortality rates.
Of course, subjecting live fish to a potentially deadly test to save others is a bitter irony. And it's one that a team of scientists from the RETERO research project hopes to eventually mitigate with a robotic fish for testing.
EM corresponded with Olivier Cleynen and Stefan Hoerner from the University of Magdeburg about the complex flow conditions that set the parameters for the project.Read More
News stories about dogs getting sick from harmful algal blooms (HABs) in lakes have caused worry among members of the public this summer more than once. But Regional Science Consortium (RSC) Executive Director Dr. Jeanette Schnars and a dedicated team are bringing awareness about HABs to the public with the Mobile HAB Lab.
“We just launched the HAB Citizen Scientists program this year,” explains Dr. Schnars. “It helps us work with people, especially people who spend time at marinas frequently, that are out there all season long.”
The season for boaters at Presque Isle, where RSC is located, starts in mid-May and usually continues through the beginning or middle of October.Read More
