The Mustang Ice Commander Pro Ice Rescue Suit is a modular suit made of a durable urethane-coated nylon shell and a removable buoyancy liner that also provides thermal protection.
For more than 10 years, the Ice Commander™ has set the standard in Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for cold water rescue. The IC9002 02 accommodates a wider range of body types while offering unmatched adjustment to suit the needs of individual rescuers.
Along with the integrated boots and gloves, the extended torso and covered diagonal entry zipper allow for quick donning while creating additional flexibility for the rescuer. Multi-point adjustment straps on the wrist, torso and legs and an adjustment zipper on the back of the hood create a near custom fit. A neoprene face guard offers additional protection from icy water and can be folded out of the way when not in use. The face guard can also be pulled to purge off excess air trapped inside the suit. The suits are reinforced in high abrasion areas and are 45% lighter than neoprene suits.
ICE AND WATER RESCUES ARE INHERENTLY DANGEROUS AND SHOULD ONLY BE PERFORMED BY PROFESSIONALS WHO HAVE THE APPROPRIATE TRAINING AND THE APPROPRIATE EQUIPMENT FOR PERFORMING THESE MISSIONS.
The Ice Commander is intended for ice and still/static cold water rescues only by trained professionals with the required and approved operating standards and requirements of their state or county.

“I remember how I first became fascinated with eels,” says Chris Bowser, Education Coordinator for the Hudson River National Estuarine Research Reserve (HRNERR) and Hudson River Estuary Program (HREP) of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, in partnership with Cornell University’s NYS Water Resource Institute . “I was doing a talk on a ship called the Clearwater. There was a trawl net catch on the deck and I picked up one of the things in the catch. It was a piece of trash, a plastic toy truck with barnacles growing on it. I was speaking to the audience and they seemed really riveted! I was thinking, ‘I must be giving a really good talk.Read More
In 2014, the Department of Ecology (DOE) in the State of Washington began to work on water quality standards related to wineries in the Yakima Valley and the rest of the state. The specific concern is the handling of wastewater from winemaking; this kind of wastewater is toxic.
Water into wine, and waste
Winery wastewater is high in sugar and filled with suspended solids such as grape plant matter and juice. Microbes can digest those solids, but only if there's enough oxygen in the water. In wastewater from winemaking, there isn't enough oxygen for those microbes—biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) far exceeds supply.
Consider this. To use the wastewater for irrigation , BOD must be below 50 .Read More
Named for wolves that were once spotted in the area during the pioneer era, Wolf Creek of Dayton, Ohio is a waterway nearly 20 miles long, a southeast flowing tributary of the Great Miami River. Wolf Creek is one of the “five rivers” referred to in the name of Five Rivers MetroParks- - Dayton, Ohio’s premier park system. Five Rivers MetroParks was founded in 1963 with the goal of preserving green space for future generations.

The area has many citizen scientist volunteers that help assess water quality in selected areas.Read More
