BART biodetectors are excellent diagnostic tools to help identify the presence and aggressivity of various bacteria. Pseudomonad bacteria are often present in waters that contain oxygen and are rich in organic pollutants (e.g., gasoline, jet fuel, solvents). The presence of pseudomonad bacteria may indicate that aerobic biodegradation is occurring and biofouling may also be happening within the system being tested. Some pseudomonad bacteria that produce the fluorescent pigments (pigments that glow in ultraviolet light) may be a hygiene risk. The faster that clouding and fluorescence happens, the more aggressive are the pseudomonad bacteria.



Pseudomonad bacteria can cause a range of problems in water, including slime formations, turbidity, taste and odor, corrosion, biodegradatrion, and hygiene risks. Pseudomonad bacteria produce distinctive odors such as “fishy” or “kerosene-like” odors. In recreational waters (such as swimming pools, hot tubs, restricted natural bathing sites), the presence of aggressive fluorescent pseudomonads can cause various infections.

Monitoring the Lake-shaping Plant Growth in Lake St. Pierre

Researchers in Quebec are taking underwater photos to get a fish-eye view of lake-shaping aquatic plants. They’re proving the use of a technique that could expand the study of plant populations that impact everything from a lake’s plankton and fish populations to its water levels.  Photo analysis could replace more expensive and labor-intensive methods. “If you want to have good data, you have to dive and collect plants and dry them and weigh them,” said Andrea Bertolo, a professor of environmental science at the University of Quebec at Trois-Rivières .  Soon, anyone with an underwater camera and a selfie stick could be contributing to this valuable science.

Snowmelt, Stormwater and Contamination in Saskatoon

In Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, pollution and runoff from storms and snowmelt are getting the close look they deserve, and there’s much more to examine. Weather, from heavy spring storms to long months of snow and freezing temperatures, makes the polluting potential of runoff and snowmelt greater than and different from warmer climate cities, said Garry Codling in an email. In Saskatoon, potentially harmful elements in runoff can exceed the guidelines for runoff set by the Canadian government.

Appalachian streams show long, slow recovery from mining’s lingering effects

Appalachia may be as closely associated with mining as it is to anything else. That close relationship will leave its mark on the area’s streams long after the last mine closes. A nine-year study recently published in Science of the Total Environment shows that long after mining activity stops and the land is left to heal, streams and stream life are slow to recover. “We could be really fine point and say that some of them seem to be recovering very, very slowly,” said Carl Zipper, professor emeritus of environmental science at Virginia Tech University . Most of the streams studied didn’t show signs of recovery.
