Water pollution aspects of street surface contaminants by James D Sartor( Book )

4 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Material which commonly reside on street surfaces have been found to contribute substantially to urban polution when washed into receiving waters by storm runoff. In fact, runoff from street surfaces is similar in many respects to sanitary sewage. Calculations based on a hypothetical but typical U.S. city indicated that the runoff from the first hour of a moderate-to-heavy storm would contribute considerably more pollutional load than would the same city's sanitary sewage during the same period of time. This study provides a basis for evaluating the significance of this source of water pollution relative to other pollution sources and provides information for communities having a broad range of sizes, geographical locales, and public works pracices. Information was developed for major land-use areas within the cities (such as residential, commercial and industrial). Runoff was analyzed for the following pollutants: BOD, COD, total and volatile solids, Kjeldahl nitrogen, nitrates, phosphates, and a range of pesticides and heavy metals. This report was submitted in fulfillment of Project No. 11034 FUJ, Contract No. 14-12-921 under the sponsorship of the Water Quality Office, Environmental Protection Agency
Interaction between marine organisms and oil pollution by Max Blumer( Book )

The carbon dioxide system and eutrophication by Stephen D Morton( Book )

4 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To determine the feasibility of eutrophication control by controlling carbon, three major areas were studied: the steady state, in which the growth rates of algae at various constant, maintained dissolved carbon dioxide concentrations were determined; the non-equilibrium, where natural atmospheric replenishment was the sole carbon source; and algal growth with inorganic bicarbonate as the sole carbon source. In studying growth rates of Chlorella, Microcystis, and Anabaena with respect to carbon availability, it was found that algae can utilize dissolved concentrations of carbon dioxide much lower than those from atmospheric equilibria
Ground water pollution in Arizona, California, Nevada & Utah by United States( Book )

4 editions published between 1971 and 1972 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An investigation to determine the ground water pollution problems which exist in the states of Arizona, California, Nevada, and Utah was conducted. Data were obtained through an extensive review of the literature and through interviews with engineers, scientists, and governmental officials concerned with water pollution in the four states of the project area. Mineralization of ground water is the most prevalent factor in the degradation of ground water quality in the project area. Large quantities of ground water in each of the four states are undesirable for many uses because of excessive mineralization. Much of the mineralization of ground water is a result of natural processes. A listing of conditions causing ground water pollution in the project area is included
An in situ evaluation of nutrient effects in lakes by Robert A Jordan( Book )

Nitrogen sources and cycling in natural waters by Patrick L Brezonik( Book )

Interaction of herbicides and soil microorganisms by Boyce Thompson Institute for Plant Research( Book )

3 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The introduction of microorganisms with specific degradative capacities into the soil was shown to be a possible means of ridding the soil of contaminating chemicals. An investigation of the interactions of soil microorganisms and several groups of herbicidal compounds, primarily chlorinated derivatives, was made. In pure culture and in soils the addition of 2,3,5,6-tetrachloroterephthalate (DCPA) had little effect upon bacterial growth, and several microorganisms appeared to use the herbicide as a carbon source. The encouragement of the soil microflora by the addition of nutrient broths resulted in a reduction of toxicity to plants of a number of herbicides. Isopropyl N-phenylcarbamate (IPC) degrading organisms, when added to soil, accelerated the degradation of IPC and related compounds. A membrane 'biologicalilter' device for reducing waterborne biodegradable pollutants was also demonstrated using these organisms

Pollution as a result of fish cultural activities by United States( Book )

4 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fish hatchery activities have been suspected as a source of pollution. This study was undertaken to evaluate this in hatchery discharges in relationship to possible pollution. A program of semi-monthly physical-chemical analysis was conducted for a year at six trout hatcheries. These determinations were taken at the hatchery inflow and outfall, the receiving water above and below the hatchery outfall. Bottom fauna was sampled once a month during the summer and bi-monthly through the winter on selected stations in the receiving waters. Flow data was recorded for the influent, effluent, and receiving waters. There was no correlation between the pounds of food fed in the hatcheries and: 1. changes of chemical quality in the receiving waters, 2. changes in kinds and numbers of bottom fauna organisms in the receiving waters. The analysis of samples revealed degradation of the water quality through every hatchery and in the receiving water. This degradation was beneficial from a fisheries standpoint but water quality and public health considerations may require cleanup before acceptable levels could be achieved. This report was submitted in fulfillment of grant no. 18050 EDH between the Environmental Protection Agency and Utah Division of Wildlife Resources
