DOC: PLANNING FOR AN EMERGENCY DRINKING WATER SUPPLY


Five workshops were convened with about sixty technical experts to review alternative means of providing drinking water in the event of destruction, impairment, or contamination of the public water supply. Various scenarios were assumed, such as destruction or impairment of the water infrastructure by a powerful earthquake and contamination events requiring alternate supplies of drinki ng water....

  AQUATIC AERATION

... OXYGEN IS THE KEY TO HEALTHY WATER. WATER NATURALLY RECEIVES OXYGEN TWO WAYS: - AT THE SURFACE WHERE THE AIR AND WATER CONTACT EACH OTHER - FROM THE PHOTOSYNTHESIS OF ALGAE AND PLANTS BELOW THE WATER SURFACE. IN STAGNANT WATER THERE IS NO EXCHANGE OF OXYGEN AND WATER FORMS WELL DEFINED LAYERS OF DIFFERENT TEMPERATURES. AERATION ASSISTS IN OXYGENATING AND AGITATING THE WATER. IT ALSO PREVENTS WINTER ICE FROM SEALING THE POND SURFACE, ALLOWING OXYGEN TRANSFER. ...
