Evaluating Water Quality in Lake Erie’s Dead Zone
Brown and Caldwell assisted the City of Cleveland Division of Water (CWD) with plant process optimization for control of disinfection byproducts and distribution system optimization for water quality. The BC team investigated the extent of Lake Erie’s anoxic zone (Dead Zone) in proximity to CWD’s four intakes in the lake. BC’s drinking water experts conducted water quality profiling, collected water samples, developed protocols, and evaluated water chemistry and treatment options from Lake Erie’s Dead Zone.
