Agricultural pollution of the Great Lakes Basin : combined report by Canada and the United States by Canada( Book )

3 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The report concerns pollution abatement in the Great Lakes Basin, specifically influenced by agricultural and related sources, including runoff and release of nutrients, pesticides, herbicides, and degradation by-products as affected by agricultural chemicals, runoff from animal and poultry production, and sedimentation. Current planning, advisory and regulatory functions of the two Governments is discussed. Some basic research of the joint study-group is summarized. Improper manure spreading or storing, and runoff from livestock feeding areas have the greatest potential impact on water quality. Pesticide contribution to environmental contamination is receiving closer scrutiny. The erosion problem is measured in sediment load in streams and deposition rate in reservoirs. High chloride levels, measured in tributary waters, seem related to road salt application. The adequacy of current legislation is discussed

Environmental impact of highway deicing by Edison Water Quality Laboratory( Book )

6 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Deicing agents for removal of ice and snow from highways and streets are essential to wintertime road maintenance in most areas of the U.S. Due to the ever-increasing use of highway deicing materials, there has been growing concern as to environmental effects resulting from these practices. The state-of-the-art report critically reviews the available information on methods, equipment and materials used for snow and ice removal; chlorides found in rainfall and municipal sewage during the winter; salt runoff from streets and highways; deicing compounds found in surface streams, public water supplies, groundwater, farm ponds and lakes; special additives incorporated into deicing agents; vehicular corrosion and deterioration of highway structures and pavements; and effects on roadside soils, vegetation and trees. Highway deicing can cause injury and damage across a wide environmental spectrum. Recommendations describe future research, development and demonstration efforts necessary to assess and reduce the adverse impact of highway deicing

Santa Barbara oil spill : short-term analysis of macroplankton and fish by Santa Barbara University of California( Book )

4 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Deep and shallow macroplankton from the Santa Barbara Channel area of the 1969 oil spill and from the Santa Cruz Basin further offshore were compared with others from previous years to study oil damage. Spring and summer collections from nearshore bottom communities of fishes and large invertebrates around kelp beds near the blowout area were compared with collections made prior to the spill and another area. No noticeable fish kills followed the blowout. Most observed changes, apparently unrelated to the spill, corresponded with various climatic anomalies during March through August, 1969. After the blowout, the composition and mode of the Channel Island sport fishery changed with seasonal trends and probably not as a direct effect of the spill. Only the temporary disappearance of tiny mysid shrimps inhabiting the kelp canopy was a likely direct effect

Removal of nitrate by an algal system : bio-engineering aspects of agricultural drainage San Joaquin Valley, California by James F Arthur( Book )

2 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Major findings are presented from a one-year operational investigation on the use of algae to remove nitrogen from subsurface agricultural tile drainage in the San Joaquin Valley of California. The objectives of the study were to: (1) refine the design criteria, determined in a preliminary investigation, (2) develop operational procedures, and (3) recommend a design for a prototype algal nitrogen removal process
