Western Beach water quality tested daily


​The regular smuggling is just an added problem for Western Beach users to contend with. They’ve seen jellyfish in previous years, with their enjoyment last year curtailed by washed up seaweed. The long time gripe; water quality, which has in the past, actually closed down the beach.
The Environmental Agency has already implemented a protocol to protect public health. Throughout the bathing season, water will be sampled at all our beaches to determine the quality. Beaches that fail to meet the quality standards could again be closed to the public.

Health Ranger offers to take over nationwide water quality testing from the EPA


In this era of widespread government waste, scientific fraud and dangerous cover-ups that poison the population, I’ve got a simple solution: End the EPA era of waste, fraud and abuse by letting accredited, private labs volunteer to take over water quality testing across the nation.

This is why Mike Adams, founder and director of CWC Labs, is now offering to take over nationwide water quality testing — up to 5,000 samples per year — for the grand total of just per year. This would cover heavy metals and toxic elements such as lead, cadmium, mercury, arsenic, copper, nickel and others.

City of Cape Town Water Quality

City of Cape Town Water Quality


The City wishes to emphasise that it is experiencing high levels of geosmin in the water drawn from the Theewaterskloof Dam. Geosmin is a naturally occurring organic compound which has an earthy flavour and aroma and which is sometimes present in water. It does not affect water quality or safety.

The City continues to add powdered activated carbon dosing during the water treatment process in an attempt to absorb this compound and to reduce the unpleasant spell and taste as far as possible. This situation is likely to persist until the onset of the winter rains.

It must be emphasised that geosmin poses no threat to human health. Even minute concentrations can be detected by the incredibly sensitive human palate. Water quality is closely monitored via a large number of water samples analysed according to the stringent South African National Standards (SANS 241:2015) requirements.

Surface water quality sampling in Toronto and the GTA

Surface water quality sampling in Toronto and the GTA


Since 2002, TRCA’s Regional Watershed Monitoring Program (RWMP) has partnered with the Ontario Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change (OMOECC) to monitor surface water quality across our regional watersheds. Water quality samples are collected monthly year-round. Thirty sites are unique to the RWMP program while the other thirteen sites are part of OMOECC’s Provincial Water Quality Monitoring Network (http://www.ontario.ca/environment-and…). The samples are analyzed for a standard suite of water quality parameters, including heavy metals, nutrients and bacteria.

Sampling follows the protocols outlined by OMOECC’s Provincial Water Quality Monitoring Network. Surface water quality data helps us to understand the impacts of land-use (e.g. agriculture, urban) on the water quality of local streams and watercourses, which ultimately flow into Lake Ontario. Data is analyzed regularly to help make informed decisions about managing and protecting our valuable water resources.

Water Pollution for Kids

Water Pollution for Kids


You will learn about “Water Pollution” in this video. Contamination of water by harmful substances, which affects life on earth, is termed as water pollution.

Due to human activities, our water is getting more and more polluted day by day. Household garbage is disposed into various sources of water. Many people perform their domestic activities like bathing, washing clothes and utensils, etc. in these sources of water.
Also, industrial wastes are discharged into the water, leading to water pollution.

Consumption of this polluted water leads to diseases like cholera, typhoid, diarrhoea, etc. in human beings. Polluted water also adversely affects the aquatic life.

Thus, we need to make sure that we do not pollute water. Domestic activities such as bathing, washing clothes and utensils should not be done in rivers, lakes, ponds, etc. Household garbage should not be disposed in the various sources of water. Also, sewage and industrial waste water should be treated before discharging into the water.

Clean Water Has Bugs In It – Stoneflies and Water Quality

Clean Water Has Bugs In It – Stoneflies and Water Quality


Clean water has bugs in it, says BYU Biology Professor Riley Nelson
Stoneflies used as a tool to monitor water quality

To fishermen, a stonefly is "bait," the kind that brings in the trophy fish. But to entomologist Riley Nelson, the stonefly is an important environmental indicator. If you see stoneflies in a river or stream, he says, the water is good.

"Of all the insects that live in water, stoneflies are the kind that require the cleanest water," says Nelson, a Brigham Young University professor of biology. "Most people would be surprised to find out how many beautiful insects are in a stream, but a good stream is one that has bugs in it."

Armed with beating sheets, sweep nets and other insect traps, Nelson has collected hundreds of species of Plecoptera (stonefly) in locations worldwide. He recently took a team of students to Mongolia for five summers, where they traveled the backwater and backcountry collecting aquatic stonefly nymphs and winged adults as part of the Mongolian Aquatic Insect Survey.

The insect survey is part of an effort by the Mongolian government, working with the Philadelphia-based Academy of Natural Sciences, to monitor the environment and to train Mongolian scientists. In remote areas of the country, scientists are using stoneflies to assess water pollution levels without the expense of lab testing.

"Because of this intolerance to pollution, stoneflies are regularly used by governments that want to know about the quality of their water and how to regulate that quality, to maintain it to be good for human use," says Nelson. As Mongolia faces industrialization and increased mining activity, the government there turned to Nelson and his students to identify aquatic species that might be used to monitor environmental change.

"They are very concerned about the environment and a very high proportion of their lands are set aside as biological and nature preserves."

In late 2012, Nelson and former BYU graduate student Sarah Judson published the first complete catalog of Mongolian stoneflies in the journal Zooataxa. The paper documents 51 species of stonefly, including five previously unknown to Mongolia and two new to science. The illustrated catalog lists habitat preferences of each species, making it possible to measure water quality without a laboratory.

"About 51 species of stoneflies live in Mongolian streams and lakes. Any one stream may have maybe 20 species, so by seeing which of those are there we can know something very important about the water quality," he says.

Nelson, a past recipient of the "Rolling Stonefly Award" from the North American Plecoptera Society, says if we pay attention to these indicator species, we will be better stewards of our environment.

"As a stream becomes more polluted and we use it for what we deem to be worthy uses, we need to be careful to take care of the little things that rule the earth. I believe that it should be part of our stewardship to take care of them as well."
