Tag: TSS

Total suspended solids (TSS) is a water quality parameter used for example to assess the quality of wastewater after treatment in a wastewater treatment plant. It is listed as a conventional pollutant in the U.S. Clean Water Act.

Comparing Volumetric and Gravimetric Suspended Sediment Concentration Data From a Midwest Stream

Comparing Volumetric and Gravimetric Suspended Sediment Concentration Data From a Midwest Stream

The ability to categorize suspended sediment metrics (e.g., total concentration, mean particle size, particle size class) to specific land-use types is increasingly appealing in terms of better targeting mitigation strategies. However, innovative real-time in situ instruments that advance monitoring capabilities often provide results that are not readily comparable to traditional

A Florida Park Revitalized
Kissimmee Lakefront Park in Kissimmee, FL, desperately needed revitalization. New facilities and buildings were planned and built, and paved surfaces were restored. Another big part of the project was installation of stormwater treatment best management practices (BMPs).

The park covers about 25 acres, situated between the downtown urban

Sediment Level Monitoring System for Stormwater Management Facilities

An efficient way is required to monitor and maintain stormwater management (SWM) facilities such as manufactured treatment devices (MTDs). MTDs are installed underground as a SWM measure to capture total suspended solids (TSS) in stormwater to provide for water quality treatment. Over time, the sediment load accumulates and fills the

Madison, Wisconsin: Capital Stormwater Management

Madison, Wisconsin: Capital Stormwater Management

Two entities are the major players for stormwater projects—green and gray—in Madison. One of those players is the city itself, which as of 2014 had a population more than 245,000. The other is the University of Wisconsin’s (UW’s) main branch. Its flagship campus of the UW system covers 936 acres

Landfill Liners and Covers

Landfill Liners and Covers

There are two driving factors: the liner and the cover. How they are designed and installed, what materials are used, and how it is maintained play a significant role in achieving a high degree of assurance of environmental integrity throughout the period in which post-closure care is required.

Greening the Streets with Permeable Interlocking Concrete Pavers

Greening the Streets with Permeable Interlocking Concrete Pavers

There may be no stopping urban sprawl, but with the right tools, we can slow its environmental impact. Whether renovating old infrastructure or building new, permeable pavement is becoming a key low impact development (LID) component offering municipalities the ability to better manage their stormwater runoff AND meet EPA clean
