Comparison of emerging contaminants in receiving waters downstream of a conventional wastewater treatment plant and a forest-water reuse system (JOURNAL)
Forest-water reuse (FWR) systems treat municipal, industrial, and agricultural wastewaters via land application to forest soils. Previous studies have shown that both large-scale conventional wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) and FWR systems do not completely remove many contam...
Environmental Accounting for the Urban Water System: Past, Present and Future - Oregon (PRESENTATION)
The modern urban water system (UWS), or the provision of supply, sanitation and drainage services in an urban context, represents the ever-evolving physical manifestation of society’s propensity to solve pressing water problems. While solutions generally entail immediate be...
USEPA’s Future Role for the Storm Water Management Model (SWMM) (PRESENTATION)
USEPA's Storm Water Management Model (SWMM) is a heavily used model to simulate stormwater and wastewater infrastructure performance as an enhanced decision making tool. SWMM I was released in 1971 by the Metcalf and Eddy, Water Resources Engineers, and the University of Florida...
Using eDNA to estimate distribution of fish species in a complex river system (presentation) (PRESENTATION)
Environmental DNA (eDNA) analysis of biological material shed by aquatic organisms is a noninvasive genetic tool that can improve efficiency and reduce costs associated with species detection in aquatic systems. eDNA methods are widely used to assess presence/absence of a target ...
Using occupancy modeling to compare traditional versus DNA metabarcoding methods for characterizing zooplankton biodiversity (PRESENTATION)
DNA metabarcoding tools could increase our ability to detect changes in zooplankton communities and to detect invasive zooplankton taxa while they are still rare. Nonetheless, the use of DNA-metabarcoding for characterizing zooplankton biodiversity in the Great Lakes has not bee...
Nitrous oxide flux under changing temperature and CO2 (PRESENTATION)
We are investigating nitrous oxide flux seasonal trends and response to temperature and CO2 increases in a boreal peatland. Peatlands located in boreal regions make up a third of global wetland area and are expected to have the highest temperature increases in response to climat...
Applications of agent-based modeling to nutrient movement Lake Michigan (PRESENTATION)
As part of an ongoing project aiming to provide useful information for nearshore management (harmful algal blooms, nutrient loading), we explore the value of agent-based models in Lake Michigan. Agent-based models follow many individual “agents” moving through a simul...
Efficacy of Inactivation of Legionella pneumophila by Multiple-Wavelength UV LEDs (PRESENTATION)
Background: Ultraviolet (UV) light has been successfully used for treating a broad suite of pathogens without the concomitant formation of carcinogenic disinfection by-products (DBPs). However, conventional mercury UV lamps have some practical limitations in water treatment appli...
Spatial and Temporal Dynamics of Cyanobacterial Blooms in Two Rhode Island Ponds. (PRESENTATION)
Cyanobacteria are natural components of freshwater ecosystems. When conditions are favorable (e.g., high nutrient inputs), cyanobacteria can form dense blooms that have negative effects on human and animal health, ecosystem functioning, and aesthetics. When blooms occur they can ...
The Rapid Benefit Indicators (RBI) Approach: A Process for Assessing the Social Benefits of Ecological Restoration (PRESENTATION)
Environmental managers face difficult decisions about allocating resources to the most beneficial projects. Focusing solely on ecological outcomes can lead to missed opportunities to provide social benefits, yet few methods exist to easily compare the social benefits of ecologica...
Comparative Emergy Evaluation of Nutrient Removal and Nutrient Recovery Technologies and the Implications to Nutrient Management (PRESENTATION)
The urbanization of the modern community creates large population centers that generate concentrated wastewater. A large expenditure on wastewater treatment has to be invested to make a modern city function without human and environmental health problems. Society relies on syste...
Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs): Responding to State and Regional Needs (PRESENTATION)
Presentation to Region 5 and States' visitors, 2/2/18.
Electrophoretic mobility of Legionella pneumophila serogroups 1 to 14 (JOURNAL)
Drinking Water Treatment Source Water Early Warning System State of the Science Review (PUBLISHED REPORT)
The effect of a loss of model structural detail due to network skeletonization on contamination warning system design: case studies (JOURNAL)
Persistence of Non-pathogenic Bacillus Spores on Sewer Infrastructure Surfaces and Assessment of Decontamination Using Chlorine (PUBLISHED REPORT)
Water Network Tool for Resilience (WNTR) User Manual (PUBLISHED REPORT)
Treatment of Perfluorinated Alkyl Substances in Wash Water Using Granular Activated Carbon and Mixed-Media (PUBLISHED REPORT)
EPA’s Water Security Modeling and Simulation Research (SUMMARY)
Detention Outlet Retrofit Improves the Functionality of Existing Detention Basins by Reducing Erosive Flows in Receiving Channels (JOURNAL)
A software framework for assessing the resilience of drinking water systems to disasters with an example earthquake case study (JOURNAL)
Homeland Security Research Improves the Nation’s Ability to Respond to Terrorism and Other Disasters (SUMMARY)
Resilience Planning Approaches “Ready-to-Use”: Lessons from EPA Partnerships. How to work with a community to design a nature-based hazard mitigation project (PRESENTATION)
A fast-paced delivery of approaches developed in EPA partnerships to enable effective inclusion of environmental and social resilience into hazard mitigation planning. This presentation will cover a broad spectrum, from 1) EPA’s role in mitigation, 2) what a Regional Resil...
Citizen Science Initiatives at EPA (PRESENTATION)
The presentation on EPA's Citizen Science Initiative is being presented to a Class in the School of Planning at the University of Cincinnati
Spatial and Temporal Dynamics of Cyanobacterial Blooms in Two Rhode Island Ponds (PRESENTATION)
Cyanobacteria are natural components of freshwater ecosystems. When conditions are favorable (e.g., high nutrient inputs), cyanobacteria can form dense blooms that have negative effects on human and animal health, ecosystem functioning, and aesthetics. When blooms occur they ca...
