Evaluation of the Duration of Storm Effects on In-Stream Water Quality



Investigation of light attenuation in Lake Eymir
Atiker, Selen; Aksoy, Ayşegül; Sanin, Selim; Department of Environmental Engineering (2012)
Light penetration and attenuation has significant impact on the water quality of lakes. Algal activity, which is important for the levels of several water quality parameters, is dependent on light penetration besides availability of nutrients. In this study, change in light penetration and attenuation in Lake Eymir was studied. The relationships of extinction coefficient (ke), and water quality parameters were investigated. The effect of ke on Chl-a over nutrients were investigated. The water quality parame...

Water quality properties and trophic status of Keban Dam Reservoir have been assessed in detail. The dissolved oxygen contours exhibited somewhat unusual behaviour of temporarily established intermediate layers of low dissolved oxygen concentrations. The phytoplankton species were identified and their composition was evaluated. The reservoir is eutrophic in general terms. However, lotic and limnetic zones of the reservoir have shown different trophic status.
Modeling evaluation of integrated strategies to meet proposed dissolved oxygen standards for the Chicago waterway system
Melching, Charles S.; Ao, Yaping; Alp, Emre (2013-02-15)
The Chicago Waterway System (CWS) is a 113.8 km branching network of navigable waterways controlled by hydraulic structures in which the majority of flow is treated sewage effluent and there are periods of substantial combined sewer overflow. The Illinois Pollution Control Board (IPCB) designated the majority of the CWS as Secondary Contact and Indigenous Aquatic Life Use waters in the 1970s and made small alterations to these designations in 1988. Between 1988 and 2002 substantial improvements in the pollu...
Determination of environmental quality standard -based discharge limits and mixing zones for tersakan sub-basin of Yeşilirmak river
Çelebi, Sarp; Ünlü, Kahraman; Department of Environmental Engineering (2019)
The control of point source discharges to rivers has become more elaborate since the establishment of environmental quality standards (EQSs). Many countries including Turkey have set EQS values for various contaminants of concern (CoCs) i.e. maximum concentration limits that would not cause detrimental effects on the health of the human-beings or the overall environment. One important challenge of achieving these EQSs is to reconcile the effluent limits that are technically and economically achievable with ...
Evaluation of eutrophication control strategies for the Keban Dam reservoir
Soyupak, S; Mukhallalati, L; Yemisen, D; Bayar, A; Yurteri, C (1997-04-15)
The reservoir of the Keban Dam in eastern Anatolia is a very deep and large water body subject to significant seasonal water level fluctuations within a given hydrological year. At the present time, different sections of the reservoir have different trophic status and the upper portion of the reservoir, in particular, is eutrophic. In this regard, there is a need for the assessment of alternative strategies to be implemented for phosphorus and thus eutrophication control in this segment of the reservoir. In...
