SPRING, Texas, June 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Go Healthy, Inc. (Pink Sheets: GOHE) announced today that the company has entered into a Letter of Intent (LOI) to acquire property which is the site of a source of high pH water from a premier aquifer. Existing flow is sufficient to supply approximately two billion liters annually of this healthy water. The water has been tested and meets all state requirements, as well as having significant natural anti oxidants. Charlie Caudle, CEO of Go...

The Bellaire, Ohio, water department is warning residents to avoid contact with tap water after hydrochloric acid was mistakenly added to the system. Kirk Baker, superintendent of the water department water department said Monday emergency crews were at the city water treatment plant after a supplier mistakenly gave the plant hydrochloric acid instead of fluoride, WTOV-TV, Steubenville, Ohio, reported Monday. Baker said about 40 pounds of the acid was added to the water supply by workers...

Madison, WI, January 12, 2009 "“ Following the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1970 and 1990 acidic deposition in North America has declined significantly since its peak in 1973. Consequently, research has shifted from studying the effects of acidic deposition to the recovery of these aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. Regional-scale studies have focused primarily on aquatic systems and while many of these ecosystems are showing signs of chemical recovery (increases in acid neutralizing...

Researchers now believe the ocean is growing more acidic faster than once thought, thanks to increasing levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide. University of Chicago scientists documented the phenomena in a paper published online in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. "Of the variables the study examined that are linked to changes in ocean acidity, only atmospheric carbon dioxide exhibited a corresponding steady change," said J. Timothy Wootton, the lead author of the study...

MAGNA -- Hazardous materials crews from the Unified Fire Authority along with officials from the Utah Department of Transportation and Salt Lake Valley Health Department are trying to figure out how a batch of sulfuric acid ended up on the side of a state road Friday. A little after 8 a.m., fire crews responded to a 911 call of a possible field fire right off the onramp from state Route 202 to I- 80 near Saltair. The first responding crews saw a plume of smoke but immediately recognized...

By Jessen, Andrea Randall, Andrew; Reinhart, Debra; Daly, Luke ABSTRACT: This study examined whether ferrate could meet the international standards for successful ballast water treatment, including final concentrations of less than 1 CFU/mL of Enterococci, less than 2.5 CFU/mL of Escherichia coli, and less than 1 CFU/100 mL of Vibrio cholerae. Pure cultures of E. coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, and V. cholerae, and a mixed culture of Enterococcus faecium and E. faecilis were grown in saline...

By Jangbarwala, Juzer A recendy completed plant in the Power River basin in Wyoming uses a new method for treating water produced from coalbed methane (CBM) wells. The new fixed-bed dynamic flow ion exchange system provides better cost efficiency and less waste byproduct than other processes. The process has a hybrid design. It simulates all the advantages of moving resins or media beds in a fixed-bed design, and it minimizes wastes by diverting rinse portions, rather than resins or beds....

By Niki Sullivan, The News Tribune, Tacoma, Wash. Jul. 29--A faulty batch of chemicals might have caused the pH level of Wapato Lake to plummet during an algae treatment Friday, suffocating large numbers of fish, according to the company hired to monitor water quality. Rob Plotnikoff, a senior scientist with Seattle water monitoring company Tetra Tech, told the Metro Parks board of commissioners Monday that the lake is safe now, but they'll have to wait for more information -- including...

Ocean Acidification
2013-04-01 10:32:20

Ocean acidification is the name that was given to the ongoing decrease in the pH of Earth’s oceans, a cause of the uptake of anthropogenic carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. About 30 to 40 percent of the carbon dioxide that is released by humans into the atmosphere dissolves into the lakes, oceans, and rivers. To maintain the chemical equilibrium, some of it reacts with the water to create carbonic acid. Some of these extra carbonic acid molecules react with a water molecule to provide a...

A pH meter, typically consisting of a special measuring probe connected to an electronic meter, is an electronic instrument used to measure the pH (acidity or alkalinity) of a liquid. The probe measures pH as the hydrogen ion activity that surrounds a thin-walled glass bulb at its tip. A small voltage is produce by the probe that measures and displays pH units by the meter. The meter circuit displays voltmeter in pH units instead of volts. The circuit of the pH meter consists of operational...
