Municipal stormwater retention ponds are a means of managing stormwater in urban settings. Due to the temporal and spatial variations involved with stormwater, numerous contaminants find their way in stormwater retention pond, creating various problems to mitigate against. The City of Edmonton...
In this study, a two-step flocculation method by combining anionic and cationic polymeric flocculants on the treatment of oil sands tailings was investigated. Compared to conventional flocculation by using a single anionic or cationic polymer, which has been a widely exploited procedure for...
Combined Adsorption and Biodegradation Processes for Oil Sands Process-Affected Water TreatmentDownload
The oil sands process-affected water (OSPW) generated from bitumen extraction of oil sands by industries in Northern Alberta, Canada, is a great environmental concern because of the OSPW toxicity in the environment. This toxicity has been attributed to a group of alicyclic and aliphatic compounds...
Many municipalities in Canada and all over the world use chloramination for drinking water secondary disinfection to avoid DBPs formation from conventional chlorination. However, the long-lasting monochloramine (NH2Cl) disinfectant can pose a significant risk to aquatic life through its...
Community Structure and Microbial Activity of Sulfate Reducing Bacteria in Wastewater Biofilms and Mature Fine Tailings Analyzed by Microsensors and Molecular Biology TechniquesDownload
Sulfate reducing bacteria (SRB) play a significant role in complex microbial environments such as wastewater biofilms and mature fine tailings (MFT). A unique characteristic of these complex microbial environments is that stratified structure containing both oxic and anoxic zones could be formed;...
Fat, oil, and grease (FOG) in wastewater can cause foul odor, sewer line blockage, and may interfere with sewage treatment. FOG control is approached with physical, chemical, and biological methods Many cities, including Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, have effectively applied commercial biological...
Direct filtration of Cryptosporidium surrogates in drinking water treatment-a multiscale approachDownload
Cryptosporidium, a waterborne protozoan pathogen that can cause gastrointestinal illness, is often found in surface waters that are used to supply drinking water. Filtration is a major barrier against Cryptosporidium in drinking water treatment processes. However, interactions between oocysts and...
Initial adhesion of EPS producing bacteria Burkholderia cepacia – the impact of cranberry juiceDownload
The impact of cranberry juice was investigated with respect to the initial adhesion of three isogenic Burkholderia cepacia bacteria with different extracellular polymeric substance (EPS) producing capacities: a wild-type cepacian EPS producer PC184, mutant bacteria PC184rml with reduced EPS...
Partial Nitrification Processes for Ammonium Rich Sludge Thickening Lagoon Supernatant TreatmentDownload
In wastewater treatment, nitrogen removal is becoming increasingly challenging to meet the more stringent standards and regulations. At local wastewater treatment plant, nitrogen removal is challenging when the plant was experiencing shock loadings. Thus, improving the nitrogen removal is...
This study examines the effects of Pseudomonas aeruginosa (PAO1) biofilm, with a concentration of cells similar to that reported for saturated aquifers, on the transport of poly(acrylic acid) stabilized nanoscale zero valent iron (pnZVI) in 14 cm long, saturated, laboratory packed columns, with...
