(P654) Biomonitoring in Tap Water Distribution Systems.
Moldaenke, Christian*,1, 1 bbe Moldaenke, Cincinnati, Ohio
ABSTRACT- The advanced bbe Fish and Daphnia Toximeter observes young living fish (e.g. Zebrafish) and Daphnia under the influence of a "sample" water stream. bbe has developed a sensitive instrument for the detection of toxic compounds in water bodies such as rivers, water treatment plant intakes and sewers. Continuous biological monitoring with the combined bbe Fish and Daphnia Toximeter enables rapid detection of toxic substances in water and provides an on-line real time warning system. This unique instrument allows managers to rapidly detect, record and respond to incidents of toxic contamination. The combined Fish and Daphnia Toximeter is well suited to the detection of wilful or negligent damage to water systems. The use of the bbe Fish and Daphnia Toximeter in water distribution systems will be demonstrated. Dechlorination and reaction time will be discussed, sensitivity to a warfare chemical will be proven.
Key words: toxicity, biomonitoring, warfare, real time
