Manchester, UK – 16th August 2011 - Multisensor Systems Ltd has announced the launch of the MS2000, an on-line Trihalomethane (THM) in water monitoring instrument, based on advanced gas sensing techniques. The instrument is designed to measure THM concentrations down to less than 10 ppb. Unlike other methods of measuring THMs the Multisensor product does not require laboratory facilities nor does it employ any chemicals in its implementation. This reduces costs and time in monitoring THMs at the output of water treatment works or in the distribution network. The Multisensor THM Monitor works by passing gas, from the headspace above the water, across a sensor array. The data from the sensors is subsequently processed to provide concentration levels and statistics. There is no direct contact with the water being monitored and therefore servicing is only required every 6 months, minimising cost. The instrument reports concentrations of THMs using a variety of communications interface options, including wireless, digital wired interfaces such as Profibus and a 4 – 20mA analogue current loop for SCADA systems. Historical data is stored within the monitor and this can be downloaded for further analysis via the wireless interface or by connecting a PC to the USB port. This method is also used for firmware upload and reporting of instrument status. Working with power supplies from 100V to 240V AC or 24V DC over a temperature range of 0 – 40C the product provides accuracy of +/- 5% using the sample presentation system which is provided. -ENDS- Press Contact: Brad Weaterton.

Crop growers were fined £25,000 with £2,015 costs following the pollution spills last October. An estimated 4,000 litres of diesel contaminated the surface water drainage system for 350m after a storage tank was broken into at the farm and a hose left running overnight. Harlow Magistrates’ Court heard the farm’s accident management plan was out of date, not all drains were shown on its drainage map, and sprayer filling areas were too near to surface water drains.

Washington, D.C. – On July 28, thousands of public comments were delivered to the Environmental Protection Agency headquarters calling for strong clean water protections. These comments, collected across the country, reflect widespread public endorsement of the Administration’s efforts to restore Clean Water Act protections to critical waterways and drinking water sources. Among those who commented were over 1,300 health professionals, 60 county officials, and over 250 sportsmen groups. This show of public support comes as Congress debates legislation that would block EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers from moving forward on clarifying which water bodies are protected under the Clean Water Act. Hundreds of organizations have encouraged EPA to move forward with restoring Clean Water Act protections to America’s streams and wetlands. National organizations include American Rivers, Clean Water Action, Clean Water Network, Earthjustice, Environment America, Izaak Walton League, League of Conservation Voters, National Wildlife Federation, Natural Resources Defense Council and Sierra Club. read the full article here: Environment America

Our Rivers campaign to raise awareness of UK river pollution

A RIVER wildlife survey launched last week aims to highlight the condition of wildlife found in and around rivers in Wales and England. The survey, by the Our Rivers campaign, aims to collect information about the wildlife and species people have seen in their area. But it also hopes to tackle major concerns about rivers, after an official report showed nearly three-quarters failed environmental targets last year. Jack Clarke, from the campaign, said: “Many of us have a river close to our homes where we love to walk, fish or simply sit and reflect and we’re hoping we can encourage this national army of river wildlife spotters to tell us what they have seen.
He said river wildlife is under threat by rural and urban pollution, over-abstraction, sewage discharges and invasive species. An Environment Agency report last year showed that 72% of rivers in Wales and England are failing European environmental targets, he said. Mr Clarke added: “We need to raise awareness of these issues and put pressure on the Government to do something about them ahead of the publication of the upcoming Water White Paper. “This document will set out how our Government cares for our river network and the wildlife that depends on it.” To take part log on to Read the full article:
