A Warm Summer is Unlikely to Stop Transmission of COVID‐19 Naturally

The outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID‐19) showed various transmission rate (Rt) across different regions. The determination of the factors affecting transmission rate is urgent and crucial to combat COVID‐19. Here we explored variation of …

Light as a possible regulator of MIB-producing Planktothrix in source water reservoir, mechanism and in-situ verification

Production and fate of fishy odorants produced by two freshwater chrysophyte species under different temperature and light conditions

Humic acid removal by gas–liquid interface discharge plasma: performance, mechanism and comparison to ozonation

The removal of natural organic matter (NOM) is a major objective for drinking water treatment. In this study, a novel advanced oxidation process (AOP) based on plasma in gas–liquid interface discharge was investigated for removing humic acid (HA), …

Synergistic effect of musty odorants on septic odor: Verification in Huangpu River source water

Revealing the main contributors to septic odor is a challenge since diverse compounds are responsible for this odor, and there might exist synergistic effects among different odorants. In this study, based on a reconstitution evaluation, the …

Succession and interaction of surface and subsurface cyanobacterial blooms in oligotrophic/mesotrophic reservoirs: a case study in Miyun Reservoir

Subsurface cyanobacterial blooms, are a significant source of odor problems in source water and have been recorded in many oligotrophic/mesotrophic drinking water reservoirs. In this study, we explored the key driving forces responsible for the …

Reducing production of taste and odor by deep-living cyanobacteria in drinking water reservoirs by regulation of water level

Abatement and control of algae, producing toxins and creating taste & odor (T&O) in drinking water sources, is a major challenge for water supply. In this study we proposed a strategy based on water level regulation for the control of odor-producing …

Source-water odor during winter in the Yellow River area of China: Occurrence and diagnosis

Yellow River source water has long suffered from odor problems in winter. In this study, odor characteristics, potential odorants, and algae in the source water of six cities (Lanzhou, Yinchuan, Hohhot, Zhengzhou, Jinan and Dongying) along the Yellow …

MIB-producing cyanobacteria (Planktothrix sp.) in a drinking water reservoir: Distribution and odor producing potential

The production of odorant 2-methylisoborneol (MIB) in water bodies by *Planktothrix* sp. have not been understood very well. Through a four-year investigation in Miyun Reservoir, a huge mesotrophic drinking water reservoir known to have the MIB …

Multiple linear regression model for bromate formation based on the survey data of source waters from geographically different regions across China

A total of 86 source water samples from 38 cities across major watersheds of China were collected for a bromide (Br−) survey, and the bromate (BrO3−) formation potentials (BFPs) of 41 samples with Br− concentration 20 $μ$g L−1 were evaluated using a …
