EPA Champions Water Quality By Example And Through New Software Tool


The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is charged with protecting the environment, and utilizes public awareness and education as two methods to achieve this goal. The organization has just released a new software tool that provides important information about pollutants that are released into local waterways. It is called the Discharge Monitoring Report (DMR) Pollutant Loading Tool, and it brings together millions of records and allows for easy searching and mapping of water pollution by local area, watershed, company, industry sector, and pollutant. Americans can use this new tool to protect their health and the health of their communities.

Environmental and Energy-Conscious Movements Around The World
The Richborough Cooling Towers have dominated the Kent skyline east of London since the 1950’s. The massive hourglass shaped towers are a regional landmark, piercing the kentcoolingtowershorizon (see photo), and serving as a constant reminder of the area’s rich, industrial traditions. However, in the coming months, the famous towers that once cooled coal and oil burning power stations will be
torn down to make room for a “green” energy park.

Traditional methods of cooling need be updated in order to stay competitive as new green technologies continue to grow. In both new constructions and older ones, proper filtration is an excellent way to increase the efficiency of cooling tower systems. Not only does filtration keep cooling towers operating in the “greenest” way possible, they also save energy, water, and money.

Environmental Agency Saves Water and Energy With Filtration On Their Cooling Tower
Perhaps no organizations are more concerned with keeping their operations environmentally friendly than the government agencies which oversee compliance with environmental regulations. One of the largest of these agencies recently faced escalating costs for cooling tower operations at a laboratory in Texas. Inefficiencies due to dirt and particulate accumulation in the cooling tower basin were causing major problems. They wanted a solution that was effective but also friendly to the environment.

They decided to install an automated cooling tower basin cleaning system, and the results have been overwhelmingly positive.
