2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin alters cardiovascular and craniofacial development and function in sac fry of rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss). (1/2380)

Hallmark signs of 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) toxicity in rainbow trout sac fry, are yolk sac edema, hemorrhage, craniofacial malformation, and growth retardation culminating in mortality. Our objective was to determine the role of cardiovascular dysfunction in the development of this toxicity. An embryotoxic TCDD dose (385 pg/g egg) caused a progressive reduction in blood flow in rainbow trout sac fry manifested first and most dramatically in the 1st and 2nd branchial arches and vessels perfusing the lower jaw. Blood flow was reduced later in the infraorbital artery and occipital vein of the head as well as segmental vessels and caudal vein of the trunk. Reduced perfusion occurred last in gill branchial arteries involved with oxygen uptake and the subintestinal vein and vitelline vein involved with nutrient uptake. Although heart rate throughout sac fry development was not affected, heart size at 50 days post-fertilization (dpf) was reduced far more than body weight or length, suggesting that the progressive circulatory failure caused by TCDD is associated with reduced cardiac output. Craniofacial development was arrested near hatch, giving rise to craniofacial malformations in which the jaws and anterior nasal structures were underdeveloped. Unlike the medaka embryo, in which TCDD causes apoptosis in the medial yolk vein, endothelial cell death was not observed in rainbow trout sac fry. These findings suggest a primary role for arrested heart development and reduced perfusion of tissues with blood in the early-life stage toxicity of TCDD in trout.  (+info)

Decolorization and detoxification of extraction-stage effluent from chlorine bleaching of kraft pulp by Rhizopus oryzae. (2/2380)

Rhizopus oryzae, a zygomycete, was found to decolorize, dechlorinate, and detoxify bleach plant effluent at lower cosubstrate concentrations than the basidiomycetes previously investigated. With glucose at 1 g/liter, this fungus removed 92 to 95% of the color, 50% of the chemical oxygen demand, 72% of the adsorbable organic halide, and 37% of the extractable organic halide in 24 h at temperatures of 25 to 45 degrees C and a pH of 3 to 5. Even without added cosubstrate the fungus removed up to 78% of the color. Monomeric chlorinated aromatic compounds were removed almost completely, and toxicity to zebra fish was eliminated. The fungal mycelium could be immobilized in polyurethane foam and used repeatedly to treat batches of effluent. The residue after treatment was not further improved by exposure to fresh R. oryzae mycelium.  (+info)

Degradation of chloronitrobenzenes by a coculture of Pseudomonas putida and a Rhodococcus sp. (3/2380)

A single microorganism able to mineralize chloronitrobenzenes (CNBs) has not been reported, and degradation of CNBs by coculture of two microbial strains was attempted. Pseudomonas putida HS12 was first isolated by analogue enrichment culture using nitrobenzene (NB) as the substrate, and this strain was observed to possess a partial reductive pathway for the degradation of NB. From high-performance liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry and 1H nuclear magnetic resonance analyses, NB-grown cells of P. putida HS12 were found to convert 3- and 4-CNBs to the corresponding 5- and 4-chloro-2-hydroxyacetanilides, respectively, by partial reduction and subsequent acetylation. For the degradation of CNBs, Rhodococcus sp. strain HS51, which degrades 4- and 5-chloro-2-hydroxyacetanilides, was isolated and combined with P. putida HS12 to give a coculture. This coculture was confirmed to mineralize 3- and 4-CNBs in the presence of an additional carbon source. A degradation pathway for 3- and 4-CNBs by the two isolated strains was also proposed.  (+info)

The role of benzoate in anaerobic degradation of terephthalate. (4/2380)

The effects of acetate, benzoate, and periods without substrate on the anaerobic degradation of terephthalate (1, 4-benzene-dicarboxylate) by a syntrophic methanogenic culture were studied. The culture had been enriched on terephthalate and was capable of benzoate degradation without a lag phase. When incubated with a mixture of benzoate and terephthalate, subsequent degradation with preference for benzoate was observed. Both benzoate and acetate inhibited the anaerobic degradation of terephthalate. The observed inhibition is partially irreversible, resulting in a decrease (or even a complete loss) of the terephthalate-degrading activity after complete degradation of benzoate or acetate. Irreversible inhibition was characteristic for terephthalate degradation only because the inhibition of benzoate degradation by acetate could well be described by reversible noncompetitive product inhibition. Terephthalate degradation was furthermore irreversibly inhibited by periods without substrate of only a few hours. The inhibition of terephthalate degradation due to periods without substrate could be overcome through incubation of the culture with a mixture of benzoate and terephthalate. In this case no influence of a period without substrate was observed. Based on these observations it is postulated that decarboxylation of terephthalate, resulting in the formation of benzoate, is strictly dependent on the concomitant fermentation of benzoate. In the presence of higher concentrations of benzoate, however, benzoate is the favored substrate over terephthalate, and the culture loses its ability to degrade terephthalate. In order to overcome the inhibition of terephthalate degradation by benzoate and acetate, a two-stage reactor system is suggested for the treatment of wastewater generated during terephthalic acid production.  (+info)

Identification of a novel group of bacteria in sludge from a deteriorated biological phosphorus removal reactor. (5/2380)

The microbial diversity of a deteriorated biological phosphorus removal reactor was investigated by methods not requiring direct cultivation. The reactor was fed with media containing acetate and high levels of phosphate (P/C weight ratio, 8:100) but failed to completely remove phosphate in the effluent and showed very limited biological phosphorus removal activity. Denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE) of PCR-amplified 16S ribosomal DNA was used to investigate the bacterial diversity. Up to 11 DGGE bands representing at least 11 different sequence types were observed; DNA from the 6 most dominant of these bands was further isolated and sequenced. Comparative phylogenetic analysis of the partial 16S rRNA sequences suggested that one sequence type was affiliated with the alpha subclass of the Proteobacteria, one was associated with the Legionella group of the gamma subclass of the Proteobacteria, and the remaining four formed a novel group of the gamma subclass of the Proteobacteria with no close relationship to any previously described species. The novel group represented approximately 75% of the PCR-amplified DNA, based on the DGGE band intensities. Two oligonucleotide rRNA probes for this novel group were designed and used in a whole-cell hybridization analysis to investigate the abundance of this novel group in situ. The bacteria were coccoid and 3 to 4 microm in diameter and represented approximately 35% of the total population, suggesting a relatively close agreement with the results obtained by the PCR-based DGGE method. Further, based on electron microscopy and standard staining microscopic analysis, this novel group was able to accumulate granule inclusions, possibly consisting of polyhydroxyalkanoate, inside the cells.  (+info)

Quality of water used for haemodialysis: bacteriological and chemical parameters. (6/2380)

BACKGROUND: The bacterial and chemical contamination of dialysate fluids are important problems in haemodialysis therapy and may be caused by the water used for dialysate preparation. METHODS: We performed a survey of the microbiological and chemical quality of the water used in seven dialysis wards. Special attention was paid to the effects of each water treatment step, for example ion exchange, reverse osmosis and UV disinfection, on the number of bacteria (measured as colony forming units, CFU), the amount of endotoxin (endotoxin units, EU) and various chemical parameters, the main focus being on calcium, magnesium, sulphate, aluminium and heavy metals. RESULTS: CFU values exceeding the European Pharmacopeia value, determined at an incubation temperature of 22 degrees C, were found in the samples of raw water (20.0%, n=25), after ion exchange (66.7%, n=12), after reverse osmosis (33.3%, n=18) and also in samples of the dialysis water taken at the inlets (12.5%, n=40) and outlets (50.0%, n=18) of the machines. Whereas all raw water samples from the wards showed high mean values for endotoxin (0.56-9.10 EU/ml) and the endotoxin levels were often enhanced after ion exchange (0.13- >9.49 EU/ml), treatment by reverse osmosis led to a satisfactory decrease in endotoxin in all samples (<0.03 EU/ml). Sufficient reductions in calcium, magnesium and sulphate could only be achieved by the combined application of ion exchange and reverse osmosis. Mercury contamination was observed in the samples after ion exchange at three treatment plants, this was possibly caused by polluted regenerants. Increased amounts of aluminium, copper and zinc were found in water samples from different sites in the treatment systems and were caused by materials in contact with the water. CONCLUSIONS: A sufficient chemical water purification treatment system should consist of ion exchange and reverse osmosis. Attention has to be paid to the suitability of materials in contact with the water and of the chemicals used, for example regenerants or corrosion inhibitors. From the microbiological point of view, a safety UV disinfection step in the water-treatment system is favourable. To avoid bacterial recontamination periodic cleaning and disinfecting of the water-treatment and distribution systems, as well as the dialysis machine are essential. There is the need for complete guidelines regarding dialysis water that include all relevant chemical and microbiological parameters. Based on this standard, periodic examination of the water after each treatment step has to be performed.  (+info)

Increased chromosome-type chromosome aberration frequencies as biomarkers of cancer risk in a blackfoot endemic area. (7/2380)

To examine whether biomarkers such as sister chromatid exchanges (SCEs) and chromosome aberrations (CAs) can predict cancer development, a nested case-control study was performed in a blackfoot endemic area with a known high cancer risk. A cohort of 686 residents was recruited from three villages in the blackfoot endemic area. Personal characteristics were collected, and venous blood was drawn for lymphocyte culture and stored in a refrigerator. The vital status and cancer development were followed using the National Death Registry, Cancer Registry, and Blackfoot Disease Registry. The follow-up period was from August 1991 to July 1995. During this 4-year period, 31 residents developed various types of cancer. Blood culture samples from nine of these subjects were unsuitable for experiments due to improper storage. Finally, a total of 22 cancer cases had cytogenetic samples that could be analyzed. Twenty-two control subjects were selected from those who did not develop cancer in the study period, and these subjects were matched to cases by sex, age, smoking habits, and residential area. The results showed that there was no significant difference in the frequencies of SCE and chromatid-type CAs between the case and control groups. However, the frequencies of chromosome-type CAs, e.g., chromosome-type gaps, chromosome-type breaks, chromosome-type breaks plus exchanges, total chromosome-type aberrations, and total frequencies of CAs in the case group, were significantly higher than those in the control group (P < 0.05). The odds ratio of cancer risk in subjects with more than zero chromosome-type breaks was 5.0 (95% confidence interval = 1.09-22.82) compared to those with zero chromosomal breaks. The odds ratios for more than zero chromosome-type breaks plus exchanges and a frequency of total chromosome-type aberrations of >1.007% were 11.0 and 12.0, respectively (P < 0.05). Subjects with a total CA frequency of >4.023% had a 9-fold increase for cancer risk. These results indicate that chromosome-type CAs are good biomarkers for the prediction of cancer development, whereas SCEs and chromatid-type CAs cannot predict cancer risk.  (+info)

Does an association between pesticide use and subsequent declines in catch of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) represent a case of endocrine disruption? (8/2380)

Historical aerial applications of the insecticide Matacil 1.8D provide an opportunity to look for potential effects of the endocrine disrupting compound 4-nonylphenol (4-NP) on Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) populations. Matacil 1.8D contained the carbamate insecticide aminocarb, with 4-NP as primary solvent. Between 1975 and 1985 Matacil 1.8D was applied to forests in Atlantic Canada to control damage from the spruce budworm (Choristoneura fumiferana). After spraying, estimated concentrations of 4-NP in water fell within a range in which estrogenic effects might be anticipated. The spraying coincided with final stages of smolt development in salmon. Salmon catch data were evaluated considering effects on survival of the smolt stage. There was a significant negative relationship between the returns of salmon and the proportion of tributaries sprayed within the Restigouche River drainage basin in 1977. There was also a broader event of unusually heavy salmon smolt mortality in 1977, which contains a significant relationship indicating that where Matacil 1.8D spraying occurred, the smolt mortality increased. For 16 rivers exposed to spraying between 1973 and 1990, a significant proportion (p<0.005) of the lowest salmon catches coincided with Matacil 1.8D spraying. A decline coinciding with the use of Matacil 1.8D was also apparent in blueback herring (Alosa aestivalis) catches in New Brunswick. Because similar relationships were not evident for Matacil 1.8F or fenitrothion, neither of which were formulated with 4-NP, we hypothesize that the 4-NP in Matacil 1.8D was the causal agent. Concentrations of 4-NP described here are within current ranges encountered in industrial effluents and municipal sewage outfalls.  (+info)

Micropollutants are rapidly degraded from parent compounds to byproducts through continuous radical attack. Micropollutants rapidly degrade from parent compounds to their byproducts through continuous radical attacks. A study by Sui et al. [116], on the efficiency of ozonation for the removal of various micropollutants, showed that carbamazepine, diclofenac, in-domethacin, and trimethoprim concentrations were reduced by more than 95% at an applied ozone dose of 5 mg/L. A study conducted by Gerrity et al. [117] focused on the application of O3/H2O2 for removing a suite of micropollutants during water reclamation. This process had considerable removal efficiency (, 90%, with the concentrations of , 0.50 ~ , 25 ng/L in the ozone effluents) for almost all of the target contaminants. Kim et al. [118] investigated the effects of UV (wavelength: 254 nm) -based processes (UV and UV/H2O2) to remove 41 micropollutants. While UV alone can only remove only a few compounds at a significant level (, 90%; ...

Solid-liquid partitioning is one of the main fate processes determining the removal of micropollutants in wastewater. Little is known on the sorption of micropollutants in biofilms, where molecular diffusion may significantly influence partitioning kinetics. In this study, the diffusion and the sorption of 23 micropollutants were investigated in novel moving bed biofilm reactor (MBBR) carriers with controlled biofilm thickness (50, 200 and 500 μm) using targeted batch experiments (initial concentration = 1 μg L−1, for X-ray contrast media 15 μg L−1) and mathematical modelling. We assessed the influence of biofilm thickness and density on the dimensionless effective diffusivity coefficient f (equal to the biofilm-to-aqueous diffusivity ratio) and the distribution coefficient Kd,eq (L g−1). Sorption was significant only for eight positively charged micropollutants (atenolol, metoprolol, propranolol, citalopram, venlafaxine, erythromycin, clarithromycin and roxithromycin), revealing the ...
Although ozonation is nowadays recognized as one of the most efficient technologies for micropollutants abatement in municipal wastewater effluents, several of the compounds potentially present in those waters exhibit a strong resistance to direct ozone oxidation. In addition, the real-time control of the removal process is still challenging. In this work, the abatement of ozone-recalcitrant micropollutants during wastewater ozonation of six different wastewater effluents was explored using the pesticide acetamiprid as hydroxyl radical (¿OH) probe. By means of this data, the oxidation efficiency (i.e., hydroxyl radical exposure per consumed ozone) could be described by means of a two-stage model based on the ROHO3 concept. This was possible using a semi-continuous bubbling ozone contactor in all experiments, which permitted the inclusion of the ozone mass balance in the model. ROHO3 values of (1.53-7.60)·10-7 s for initial ozonation stage and (0.61-2.95)·10-6 s for the secondary stage were ...
EPA set a Maximum Contaminant Level Goal (MCLG) for each contaminant. The MCLG is the maximum level of a contaminant in drinking water at which no known or anticipated adverse effect on the health of persons would occur, and which allows an adequate margin of safety. MCLGs are not enforceable. The MCLG is not a legal limit set for PWSs. It is based solely on human health. For known cancer-causing contaminants the MCLG is set at zero. This is because any chemical exposure could present a cancer risk.. The Chemical Contaminants Rules also set Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) for each contaminant. EPA sets MCLs as close to the health goal as possible. The MCL weighs the technical and financial barriers with public health protection.. The following link is a table of all regulated drinking water contaminants:. ...
The health risk of organic micro pollutants in water is yet to be comprehensively established. However, the persistence of these pollutants in the environment as a result of continuous discharge even at trace concentrations is considered to pose major environmental concerns. Advance treatment methods such as membrane-assisted processes (MAPs) are potential technologies capable of removing a wide range of these organic micropollutants (OMPs) detected in water. In this study, investigation of surface-coated ultrafiltration (UF) poly(vinylidene fluoride) (PVDF) hollow fibre membrane for the removal of organic micropollutants (OMPs) in water was performed. Coating of PVDF membranes with poly(1-phenylethene-1,2-diyl)/polystyrene and pluronics F68 solutions through physical adsorption was carried out in two modes: dipping and spraying. Surface characterization of coated membranes showed that the coating layer potentially influenced the surface properties suitable for improved solute-membrane ...

The method of stimulating an aquatic life form is disclosed. The method has the steps of activating a pressure pulse or an acoustic shock wave generator or source to emit pressure pulse or acoustic shock waves; and subjecting the aquatic life form to the pressure pulse or acoustic shock waves stimulating said aquatic life form wherein the aquatic life form is positioned within a path of the emitted shock waves. The aquatic life form is a tissue having cells. The tissue can be an egg, zygotic embryo or larvae or an immature or a mature specimen. The aquatic life form may be a fish, shellfish, any crustacean, mussel, slam, oyster, abalone, scallop, shrimp, lobster, crab, crawfish, eel, octopus or any other aquatic life form. The method of stimulating includes activating the cells within the treated tissue thereby releasing growth factor proteins or other chemical compositions promoting growth and accelerating maturization. The tissue may be infected or exposed to infections from microbial sources such as
Ryszard Laskowski discussed the bad properties of the No Observed Effect Concentration (NOEC) in the last issue of Oikos (Laskowski, 1995). I fully agree with him that the NOEC should be banned. Within the OECD and SETAC, discussions have been initiated to replace the NOEC by a `small-effect concentration (EC5 or EC10), but I will argue that this alternative is also far from ideal and propose a better alternative: the No Effect Concentration (NEC). It cannot be implemented successfully in the standard log-logistic or log-probit model. This is, however, hardly a handicap, because the biological foundations of those models are anyway extremely shaky ...

Many micropollutants including hormones, pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs), are used daily in households for personal health and cleaning purpose. Wastewater discharged from onsite wastewater treatment system (OWTS), commonly known as septic systems, can be an important source of micropollutants in the environment. This study investigated the fate and transport of 17 micropollutants, including human excretion markers, hormones, and PPCPs in OWTS drainfields. Effluent samples were collected from a tank and leachate samples were collected from three replicate OWTS drainfields constructed in lysimeters (1.5 m length, 0.9 m wide, 0.9 m high). Each lysimeter contained stacked layers of sand-gravel (7.6 cm), natural soil (30.5 cm), and commercial sand (30.5), as per guidelines for construction of commercial drainfields. A drip tube with three emitters was placed on top of the sand layer to disperse 9L/d of effluent equivalent to maximum allowable rate of 3 L/ft2 per day. The drip tube ...

A composition for removing organic contaminants, such a flux residues, from a solid substrate comprises: (a) hydrogen peroxide in the amount of about 3 to 5 percent by weight of the composition; (b) an alkaline compound in sufficient amount to provide a pH of at least 10.5 in the composition; (c) about 0.1 to 0.3 percent by weight of a chosen wetting agent which is unreactive with the hydrogen peroxide and the alkaline compound; and (d) purified water as the balance of the composition. Optionally, the composition may further comprise about 0.5 to 2.0 percent by weight of a chosen metal protective agent. The solid substrate having organic contaminants thereon is exposed to the above noted composition whereby the organic contaminants are removed from the substrate and are converted into non toxic and non-hazardous products. Thus, negative environmental impact is avoided by the present process. In an alternative embodiment, the organic contaminant removal is further enhanced by exposing the

Many studies clearly link pet wastes and waterborne bacterial pollution. Once it gets into our rivers, lakes, and streams the bacteria end up in fish and other aquatic life. Pet waste can reduce the oxygen content in waterways and make it difficult for aquatic life to survive. Dog poop is raw sewage that gets into our waterways - where we fish, swim, boat, and gather food. ...
Important scientific and technical considerations were ignored when the Recommended Maximum Contaminant Level (RMCL) for fluoride was set. The process which led to this was scientifically irrational and displays an unprofessional review of relevant scientific data said the EPA Union of scientists and professionals. They attempted to join the Natural Resources Defense Council in a 1986 action against EPA
PNEC Water (freshwater, marine water, intermittent) The proposed approach to derive PNEC values is the assessment factor method where a toxicity value is divided by an assessment factor. The size of the assessment factor accounts for a number of uncertainties: -intra- and inter-laboratory variation of toxicity data -intra- and inter-species variations (biological variance) -short-term to long-term toxicity extrapolation -laboratory data to field impact extrapolation. When acute data are available for three trophic levels, the standard approach to PNEC determination is to apply an assessment factor of 1000 to the lowest lethal or effect concentration (E(L)C50). However, the assessment factor presented in Table R.10 -4 from ECHA Guidance R.10 should be considered as general factors that under certain circumstances may be changed according to justification including one or more of the following: -evidence from structurally similar compounds (evidence established by read across from closely related ...
May 12, 2008. NOAA scientists today released a 20-year study showing that environmental laws enacted in the 1970s are having a positive effect on reducing overall contaminant levels in coastal waters of the U.S. However, the report points to continuing concerns with elevated levels of metals and organic contaminants found near urban and industrial areas of the coasts. Its interesting to note that pesticides, such as DDT, and industrial chemicals, such as PCBs, show significant decreasing trends around the nation, but similar trends were not found for trace metals, said Gunnar Lauenstein, manager of the NOAA Mussel Watch program. What is of concern is that there are contaminants that continue to be problematic, including oil-related compounds from motor vehicles and shipping activities.. The report, NOAA National Status and Trends Mussel Watch Program: An Assessment of Two Decades of Contaminant Monitoring in the Nations Coastal Zone from 1986-2005, is the first that presents national, ...
Three studies including predicted data from validated tools and experimental data for toxicity to aquatic algae endpoint of test chemical Dialuminium tris[4-hydroxy-3-[(4-sulphonato-1-naphthyl)azo]naphthalenesulphonate] (Cas no. 84041-67-8) with relevant read across which is close to target using log Kow as primary descriptor were summarised as follows: Based on the prediction done using the OECD QSAR toolbox version 3.3 with log kow as the primary descriptor and considering the closest read across substances, the toxicity on algae was predicted for Dialuminium tris[4-hydroxy-3-[(4-sulphonato-1-naphthyl)azo]naphthalenesulphonate] (Cas no. 84041-67-8). Effect concentration i.e EC50 value was estimated to be 528.64 mg/l for Pseudokirchneriella subcapitata for 72 hrs duration. It was concluded that the Dialuminium tris[4-hydroxy-3-[(4-sulphonato-1-naphthyl)azo]naphthalenesulphonate] (Cas no. 84041-67-8) was likely to be not toxic to aquatic algae, hence it can be considered to benot classifiedas ...

where Z is the concentration of zolpidem, τe,control is the duration of mIPSCs without zolpidem,Max is the maximal relative increase of the duration, EC50 is the half-maximal effect concentration, andh is the Hill coefficient. For each concentration, the stationarity of the mIPSC parameters was ascertained. Moreover, no change of the amplitude or the duration of mIPSCs was seen in control conditions over a period of 30 min, which exceeds the duration of the recordings necessary to test the effects of zolpidem.. Non-stationary fluctuation analysis (NSFA) was performed on currents elicited by fast applications of saturating concentrations of GABA on outside-out patches as described previously (Jonas et al., 1993). Series of 15-40 applications with stable maximal amplitude and duration were averaged. For each individual trace, the variance around the mean, minus the variance of the baseline noise, was computed for regularly spaced time intervals. For each interval, the corresponding mean current ...

The performance of a test for bioaccumulation in aquatic species, preferably fish, is scientifically unjustified. REACH Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, Annex IX, Sect. 9.3.2, Col. 2, states as follows: 9.3.2 The study need not be conducted if: - the substance has a low potential for bioaccumulation (for instance a log Kow ,= 3) and/or a low potential to cross biological membranes, or - direct and indirect exposure of the aquatic environment is unlikely. Direct and indirect exposure of the test item to water is highly unlikely. Due to the unstable nature of organic peroxides, it can be assumed that upon contact with water and organic matter, the test item undergoes rapid degradation resulting in the formation of respective alcohols and acids. Therefore, the test substance was considered to have no bioaccumulation potential. ...

Micropollutants in Groundwater Downgradient from Wastewater Land Application Sites. by Sarah Elliott, US Geological Survey. Presentation Abstract. Methods of wastewater land application, such as on-site treatment systems, are currently used in Minnesota. Wastewater discharges can contain micropollutants such as pharmaceuticals, personal care products, and other organic wastewater chemicals, which can affect soil and shallow groundwater. We evaluated the presence of micropollutants in shallow groundwater near wastewater land application sites. Two types of sites were targeted: (1) large subsurface treatment systems (LSTS) and (2) rapid infiltration basins (RIB). Thirty-four micropollutants were detected, ...
Previous epidemiologic studies of maternal exposure to drinking water nitrate did not account for bottled water consumption. The objective of this National Birth Defects Prevention Study (NBDPS) (USA) analysis was to assess the impact of bottled water use on the relation between maternal exposure to drinking water nitrate and selected birth defects in infants born during 1997-2005. Prenatal residences of 1,410 mothers reporting exclusive bottled water use were geocoded and mapped; 326 bottled water samples were collected and analyzed using Environmental Protection Agency Method 300.0. Median bottled water nitrate concentrations were assigned by community; mothers' overall intake of nitrate in mg/day from drinking water was calculated. Odds ratios for neural tube defects, limb deficiencies, oral cleft defects, and heart defects were estimated using mixed-effects models for logistic regression. Odds ratios (95% CIs) for the highest exposure group in offspring of mothers reporting exclusive ...
Aquatic organisms passively accumulate hydrophobic organic compounds, such as polychlorinated biphenyls, even when ambient water concentrations of the contaminant are below analytical detection limits. However, contaminant concentrations in tissue samples are subject to an inherently high level of variability due to differences in species, life stage, and gender bioconcentration potentials. Semipermeable membrane devices (SPMDs) were used to sample Aroclor 1254, a mixture of readily bioconcentrated polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), in a contaminated wetland near Flat Top, WV. The devices consisted of triolein, a lipid found in fish, enclosed in a polyethylene membrane. SPMDs were deployed in the water column and in direct contact with wetland sediments along a previously identified concentration gradient of PCBs. The devices were retrieved after a 25-day exposure period. Analytes were recovered by dialyzing the devices in nanograde hexane. Hexane dialysates were condensed and analyzed by gas
Water Contaminant Removal Equipment for Municipal Drinking Water Applications The removal of water contaminants is a major challenge for municipal drinking
Tritium-based ages indicate ground water was most likely recharged after the 1950 s at all but one sampling site. Agricultural and urban land-use areas have remained relatively stable in the study area since the 1950 s; therefore, the effects of current land use should be reflected in ground water sampled during this study. Radon-222 was detected in all samples and exceeded the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency s previously proposed maximum contaminant level for drinking water (300 picocuries per liter) in 71 percent of samples. Pesticides were detected in 84 percent of samples from agricultural areas and 70 percent from urban areas. Atrazine and metolachlor were the most frequently detected pesticides in samples from agricultural areas; atrazine and prometon were the most frequently detected pesticides in samples from urban areas. None of the pesticide oncentrations exceeded U.S. Environmental Protection Agency maximum contaminant levels or lifetime health advisories for drinking water. ...

Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level (MRDL): The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.. Maximum ...
Notes 1 Maximum Contaminant Level Goal (MCLG) - The maximum level of a contaminant in drinking water at which no known or anticipated adverse effect on the health effect of persons would occur, and which allows for an adequate margin of safety. MCLGs are non-enforceable public health goals. 2 Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) - The maximum permissible level of a contaminant in water which is delivered to any user of a public water system. MCLs are enforceable standards. The margins of safety in MCLGs ensure that exceeding the MCL slightly does not pose a significant risk to public health. 3 Treatment Technique - An enforceable procedure or level of technical performance which public water systems must follow to ensure control of a contaminant. 4 Units are in milligrams per Liter (mg/L) unless otherwise noted. 5 MCLGs were not established before the 1986 Amendments to the Safe Drinking Water Act. Therefore, there is no MCLG for this contaminant. 6 Lead and copper are regulated in a Treatment ...

Determining optimal ozone doses for organic micropollutant elimination during wastewater ozonation is challenged by the presence of a large number of structurally diverse micropollutants for varying wastewater matrice compositions. A chemical kinetics approach based on ozone and hydroxyl radical (·OH) rate constant and measurements of ozone and ·OH exposures is proposed to predict the micropollutant elimination efficiency. To further test and validate the chemical kinetics approach, the elimination efficiency of 25 micropollutants present in a hospital wastewater effluent from a pilot-scale membrane bioreactor (MBR) were determined at pH 7.0 and 8.5 in bench-scale experiments with ozone alone and ozone combined with H2O2 as a function of DOC-normalized specific ozone doses (gO3/gDOC). Furthermore, ozone and ·OH exposures, ·OH yields, and ·OH consumption rates were determined. Consistent eliminations as a function of gO3/gDOC were observed for micropollutants with similar ozone and OH rate ...

The most critical study for is therefore chosen as the key study. For freshwater invertebrates the lowest observed effect concentration is a 48-h EC50 value of 100 mg/l inDaphnia magna(Springborn Laboratories, Inc., 1994b). For marine invertebrates only one study was available, the study was conducted according to accepted guidelines, the 96-h LC50 is 14 mg/l inAmericamysis bahia(Springborn Laboratories Inc,., 1994c). ...
Organic contaminants in sewage biosolids and in manure and the nutrient circular economy Europe today spreads around half of sewage sludge, after appropriate treatment, and nearly all animal manures, back to land. Where managed in response to crop nutrient needs, this ensures recycling of nutrients and micro-nutrients, and return of organic carbon to soil.. However, this recycling of organic wastes (sewage biosolids, manures, …) back to agricultural soil is under pressure because of real or perceived concerns about organic contaminants (pharmaceuticals, organic chemicals …) and their possible impacts on crops, human health, soils and the environment.. Maintaining this current recycling route is a priority for closing the loop for phosphorus and other nutrients, but safety for health, soil, crops and the environment must be ensured.. ...

The Target Lipid Model (TLM) provides a framework for deriving predicted no effect concentrations (PNEC) for non polar organic chemicals to organisms in the environment. This approach has been used to perform environmental risk assessment of individual hydrocarbons as well as complex petroleum substances. The TLM is based primarily on data for aquatic test organisms and this work evaluatesthe potential for extending the TLM to soil and sediment using Equilibrium Partitioning (EqP) theory.. Literature data for other nonpolar organics were compiled for acute and chronic exposures to invertebrates in soils and sediments. New data were generated according to OECD guidelines (CONCAWE, 2011 and 2012) to evaluate soil and sediment dwelling organisms and to test potential toxicity cut-offs for high log Kow compounds. The default TLM was applied to these data using EqP to develop critical target lipid body burdens (CTLBB) including associated uncertainty in the model application.. Comparison of the ...
Purpose The purpose of this study was to determine the bioconcentration potential of the test material in fish under flow-through conditions. During the GLP compliant test the lethal and other effects in fish were determined during the exposure period of 28 days.

The families in this neighborhood have had their lives disrupted for too long, DEP Regional Director Kelly Burch said. While Schreiner had installed treatment systems at these two homes, they were only a partial solution. The order calls on Schreiner to rectify the situation completely.. Schreiner has been actively drilling combination oil and gas wells in the area since 2008 and did not establish background water quality in the area prior to drilling. Therefore, Schreiner must demonstrate that the contaminants in the affected water supplies do not exceed the maximum contaminant levels established under the Pennsylvania Safe Drinking Water Act. DEP ordered Schreiner to submit to the department within 10 days a permanent water supply restoration plan for the two remaining residences. After DEP approves the plan, Schreiner has 30 days to implement and complete it.. DEP took samples at both homes over several months to confirm its findings. Among the contaminants identified were total dissolved ...
Assessing the fate of chemicals in fish (bioconcentration). Two strategies for addressing chemicals for a B assessment were developed. The first approach was developed to address groups of chemicals when a definitive value is not required, but a value less than some pre-agreed bright-line. Such an approach, for example in the context of the EU-PBT strategy, could lead to significant reduction in the number of chemicals tested. This approach starts by identifying the chemicals within a group. This may be based on similar chemical structures or presumed bioconcentration behaviour. The purpose of the grouping would be to allow for key members of the group to be identified and tested. Interpolation within the group would then allow for bioconcentration factor (BCF) values to be assigned to the other group members via a local QSAR. The second strategy, a single chemical approach, starts with a worst-case assumption and then allows further refinement depending upon subsequent actions. Several of the ...

Excellent article by Ms. Pelley that increased my knowledge on this issue immensely. I must ask though, given the complexities of the LCR was Green Bay ever out of compliance? Even though the city exceeded the action level for lead, as long as they were taking corrective action and performing public education, was the city not still in compliance with the Safe Drinking Water Act? My best guess is that when the current LCR was written, EPA decided to not saddle utilities with violations, since so much lead is on the consumers side of the meter. If EPA does ever promulgate a new LCR, I feel an exceedence of the action level for lead needs to be designated a violation of the SDWA and probably called a maximum contaminant level violation like most other contaminants. At the least the current LCRs public education acknowledges parents are important in the process. EPAs current Public Notification Rule for drinking water violations pretends parents dont exist. Both the LCR and PN Rules need ...
