Quantitative Microbial Risk Assessment for Spray Irrigation of Dairy Manure Based on an Empirical Fate and Transport Model

Conclusions: Our model-based estimates suggest that reducing pathogen prevalence and concentration in source manure would reduce the risk of AGI from exposure to manure irrigation, and that increasing the distance from irrigated manure (i.e., setbacks) and limiting irrigation to times of low wind speed may also reduce risk. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP283 Received: 30 March 2016 Revised: 07 March 2017 Accepted: 13 March 2017 Published: 16 August 2017 Address Correspondence to M.A. Borchardt, USDA-ARS, 2615 Yellowstone Dr., Marshfield, WI 54449 USA.

In this work, the enhanced degradation of PFOA in water by dielectric barrier discharge (DBD) plasma in a coaxial cylindrical structure with the assistance of peroxymonosulfate (PMS) was explored. The effects of PMS dosage, input voltage and s...

The optimal (1:1) ZnS-SnS2 can degrade 93.46% of tetracycline and remove 73.9% COD of pharmaceutical wastewater under visible-light irradiation due to the efficient production of •H, •O2-, h+ and •OH. The toxicity evaluation by ECOSAR prediction and the growth of E. coli indicates efficient toxicity reduction of tetracycline b...
