In The News
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
It’s an open, dirty secret that the ocean is used as the ultimate sewage solution.
Each year trillions of gallons of untreated waste are sent to the ocean due to a widespread lack of sanitation technology or infrastructure that needs updating as cities and populations grow. As the impact of untreated sewage on the ocean becomes clearer, attention to the problem and strategies for dealing with it have not kept up.
“This is a massive problem and it’s been largely ignored,” said Stephanie Wear, senior scientist and strategy advisor for The Nature Conservancy. Wear has turned her attention to raising the alarm about the effects of sewage on coral reefs, which often loses airtime to other pressing issues like climate change and overfishing.Read More
