Mohawk River Water and Sediment Monitoring

Protection and improvement of water quality in the Mohawk River watershed is essential to keep the community protected from unhealthy, unsafe conditions. It’s also important that water supplies are conserved, aquatic communities can flourish and natural processes are sustained. Water quality monitoring in the Mohawk River Basin has been conducted for over 40 years.  Surface water quality is assessed by means of chemical, biological, and physical parameters. Water quality assessment can identify which contaminants are present, their sources, and the extent to which they affect the health of the watershed. The headwaters of the Mohawk River are located in the

SUNY’s Solar Safety and Scholarships

Many New York State University campuses are adding solar capacity to their energy portfolio. While this is clearly a positive step overall, it does present some potential problems for responding fire departments. Photovoltaic (PV) panels (which generate electricity directly from sunlight via an electronic process that occurs naturally in certain types of material) can present a potential hazard due to the sun’s energy turning into electrical energy. It is often difficult to power down the solar panels during an emergency. When there is sunlight or fire fighter lighting present, the panels will stir up electricity. Because the panels may not

New York City’s Payment Plan for Water Bills

Homeowners in New York City who are facing a foreclosure of their primary residence can get help with their water bills from the Water Debt Assistance Program. The program was created to provide temporary relief to homeowners who are at risk of a foreclosure on their home. After an application is submitted and approved, it can help those qualified individuals pay their past-due water and sewer bills and any outstanding debts. If a homeowner applies and is accepted into the program, the owner must enter into a guaranteed, binding agreement with NYC agency running the DEP (Dept. of Environmental Protection)

New York Harbor and Jamaica Bay Protection Plan

New York Harbor is making a comeback and the signs are all around. According to the city’s most recent Harbor Survey Report, the Harbor is cleaner now than at any time in the last 100 years. Continued improvements to sewage handling and treatment are chiefly responsible for the better grade attributed to water quality, which have led to increased recreational opportunities such as swimming and fishing. The New York City Department of Environmental Protection conducts numerous programs designed to maintain this trend. DEP operates 14 sewage treatment plants that together treat approximately 1.3 billion gallons of sewage each day. The

Benefits of Renewable Energy for Ithaca

The Ithaca Area Wastewater Treatment Facility now generates nearly half its energy on site. The plant uses an upgraded biogas for energy and serves a population of 40,000 in Ithaca and two neighboring townships. Biogas is produced when bacteria decompose manure. This gas mixture can be used to generate heat, hot water or electricity. The leftover digested manure also has many uses such as: fertilizer, bedding, mulch and potting soil. New York has also been pivotal in establishing a Smart Growth Public Infrastructure Policy which takes many agencies into account. Unlike NYS infrastructure agencies and authorities, local governments are not directly

No Ordinance for Separate Sewer in Hudson

The town of Hudson has received a grant to complete renovation of sewer pipelines.  The EPA has raised has suggested that a review of environmental concerns needs to be extensive before this project commences.  The topic of storm water separation, and the necessity of it, has been met with conflicting opinions.  The Sewer Authority is well advised to consider a separate sewer system, according to experts.  It is thought to be the best course of action for the prevention of overflows, of a combined system, due to rainy weather.  In the state of New York, however, there is question as

Sewer and Water 101

Summer is indeed here in all its glory.  We know that means rainfall is here, too.  In fact, in many parts of the country we have had record setting storms.  Precipitation can heavily contribute to an overloaded sewer system.  As a nation, we have over 700 communities that utilize combined sewer systems.  There are some Cities that have separate sewer systems but this is no small financial investment.  Even so, municipalities have the burden of making sure these systems are functioning. It can pose a health risk and even more financial strain if they are not. There are small contributions

Sewer Vent Incident!

Do you know how to locate your sewer vent at your home?  The more knowledge on this subject, the better as it could cause a safety hazard if the vent is left uncovered. A very young Yorkshire terrier named Bailey was just bailed out of a frightening situation in Buffalo, NY.  He fell in a sewer vent and had to be rescued after water authority workers dug a hole around the sewer pipe to free him.  He was able to crawl out and thankfully averted a tragedy. Ideally, the best way to locate a sewer vent would be to contact
