The number of coastal algae blooms has increased off California in the past 10 years and it may be due to the introduction of nutrient-rich urban wastewater.
To see if a link exists, scientists in the state are taking advantage of month-long maintenance work on pipelines within the Orange County Sanitation District that will open a temporary discharge site one mile from shore.
“It’s exceedingly rare that we have this opportunity,” said Dave Caron, professor of marine environmental biology at University of Southern California. “This long of a window hasn’t existed at any time in my memory.Read More
Quality data depends on monitoring equipment that is precisely and routinely calibrated and repaired. Fondriest’s factory-certified YSI Repair Center is staffed by trained technicians who have performed thousands of calibrations and maintenance procedures. Their experience guarantees proper and efficient work, ensuring the continued delivery of accurate, reliable data.
Once a monitoring system is set up, equipment should be inspected, reconditioned, and calibrated periodically to ensure reliable results. Quality data can be directly correlated to the condition of monitoring equipment.Read More
Since 2003 harmful bacteria Escherichia coli (E. coli) levels have created a health risk to recreational users in Boulder Creek. Boulder Creek has been designated as an impaired stream and is not meeting an EPA health-based water quality standard.
Concentrations of E. coli increase from the mouth of Boulder Canyon to the University of Colorado-Boulder and beyond based upon data collected by the City of Boulder according to information published by the CU Independent and the Boulder Camera . EM spoke to environmental engineer Art Hirsch of the Boulder Waterkeeper , who is advocating for greater accountability from all entities that own property abutting the stream.
