  • Depending on their size and composition, plastics may release previously bound-up chemicals into the water as they break into particles. (innovationtoronto.com)
  • At the same time, limited research suggests the changing composition of the smaller plastic bits may make it easier for them to absorb other chemicals that may be in the water. (innovationtoronto.com)
  • The group's findings show U.S. water systems are contaminated by 256 different chemicals. (npr.org)
  • Eighty-one percent of all water systems detected chemicals linked to cancer, and 19,000 systems detected lead levels that could be harmful for infants. (npr.org)
  • Waste
  • They found pieces of plastic waste up to 5mm in diameter in the waters of the lake, which surprised them, given "the massive efforts put into protecting the lakes shores over the past decades, both on its French and the Swiss shores. (innovationtoronto.com)
  • processes
  • The aim of the current review is to present the recent developments in this field of study by examining research of systems like functional water-soluble polymers and water-soluble polymer-metal complexes coupled to ultrafiltration membranes for decontamination processes in liquid-liquid phase. (frontiersin.org)
  • Thus, there is a real need for advanced water treatment processes that overcome these issues. (beilstein-journals.org)
  • priority

  • Indicator filter feeding species such as copepods have also been used to study pollutant fates in the New York Bight, for example. (blogspot.com)

  • Most of the fluoride we've been injecting into our drinking water is silicofluoride, a substance that has never been tested or approved by any federal agency. (fluoridealert.org)
  • limits
  • The city currently blends local water with untainted imports to bring chromium 6 levels below state limits. (glendalenewspress.com)
  • We (Virginia and Fairfax County) say that the EPA's TMDL for the Accotink Creek by its own terms limits water - not a pollutant - and regulating water itself (or any other non-pollutant) is beyond the legal authority of the EPA. (bearingdrift.com)
  • large
  • In the past decades, researchers have become aware that some sharks, bluefin tuna, swordfish and killer whales can store large amounts of pollutants in their tissues. (pbs.org)
  • Large numbers of countries around the world reject water fluoridation (such as Japan, Germany, and Belgium). (fluoridealert.org)
  • aqueous
  • Then, the removal of metal or metalloid ions from aqueous sources can be reachedby water-soluble polymers used in combination with ultrafiltration membranes in a technique called liquid-phase polymer-based retention (LPR), which will be described in this review. (frontiersin.org)

  • In the new system, the water flows between chemically treated, or "functionalized," surfaces that serve as positive and negative electrodes. (mit.edu)
  • The] EPA says that even though the TMDL they issued was to control the volume of water that flows into the Accotink Creek, it's really a TMDL for sediment (an actual pollutant). (bearingdrift.com)
  • search

  • sediment
  • In Fairfax County, the EPA wanted to regulate the amount of water flow into the Accotink Creek because, apparently, it stirs up too much existing sediment on the bottom of the creek bed. (bearingdrift.com)
  • In other words, the EPA wanted to treat water as a surrogate measure to control sediment that is already there, permissible, in their opinion, under the Clean Water Act . (bearingdrift.com)
