Hach Slime-Forming Bacteria BART Test

BART biodetectors are excellent diagnostic tools to help identify the presence of process disruptors, such as bacteria creating slime layers and limiting disinfection.

Features

  • Simple yet effective method for monitoring the population size and/or activity of specific groups of bacteria
  • Easy to use, requiring no elaborate or costly equipment and no specialized training
  • Effective and affordable tests are easy to interpret and can be performed at room temperature in virtually any environment

The SLYM-BARTs can be used as a P/A test capable of indicating to some extent the possible population size and the types of slime-forming organisms present in the water sample. Slime-forming bacteria are able to produce copious amounts of slime without necessarily having to use any iron. Iron bacteria also produce slime, but usually it is thinner and involves the accumulation of various forms of iron.



Slime-forming bacteria generally produce the thickest slime formations under aerobic (oxidative) conditions, which develop around the floating ball. Growth may be recognized as a cloudy or gel-like growth, which can be localized or occur throughout the sample. These growths are usually white, grey, yellow, or beige in color and can darken over time.

Restoration, Testing, Research and Education

A few years after Ohio became a state in 1803, George Harner arrived in Greene County with a land deed signed by then-President Thomas Jefferson and Secretary of State James Madison. The homestead was largely old forest and wetlands and also included a fen-fed stream—the Beaver Creek. As was the case with much of the Ohio Territory, the forests eventually gave way to land clearing and grain farming. Harner’s descendants, including his son John and John’s wife, Sarah Koogler, continued to work the rich soil for many years to follow. Much of the original property and surrounding land has fallen prey to urban sprawl.

Storms Cause Extended, Elevated Contaminant Concentrations in Urban Streams

Each fall in Puget Sound, coho salmon leave the salt water and swim up freshwater streams. They head upstream to spawn: lay their eggs and die. Death is always the end of this journey for coho salmon, but in streams now running through urban areas, stormwater runoff kills them before they can spawn. This phenomenon, called Urban Runoff Mortality Syndrome, can kill up to 70-90% of coho salmon in an affected area. “‘Woah’ is a pretty common response,” said Kathy Peter, a research scientist formerly at University of Washington Tacoma and the Center for Urban Waters. This phenomenon adds pressure to the Puget Sound population, already considered a species of concern by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service under the Endangered Species Act.

A Nationwide View shows “Evolution” of Water Quality Concerns

Water quality issues are shifting in the United States’ rivers in big ways. Those changes are driven, in part, by the way the land in a watershed is used and they’re big enough that researchers may need to change the way they think about water quality in the American rivers. “What was striking to us was how perceptions of water quality issues from several decades ago may need to be updated,” said Edward Stets, a U S Geological Survey research ecologist, in an email response to questions from Environmental Monitor. New research by Stets published in Environmental Science & Technology in March highlights these shifting water quality issues.
