How to Reduce TSS, pH and Harmful Algae - NIPSCO Case Study
Join experts from LG Sonic , NIPSCO , and LimnoTech in the free webinar. In the agenda:
- Kathy Hall, Environmental Scientist from LimnoTech, will explain you how TSS, pH and algae growth are codependent and what can you do to reduce them
- Lisa Brand, Microbiologist from LG Sonic , will present you an interactive algae control technology
- Brian Snyder, Senior Chemical & Environmental Specialist from NIPSCO , will walk you through the case study: how he managed to reduce TSS levels at the plant discharge, improved plant discharge water quality and environmental impact, eliminated UV blocker chemical from the treatment program, and reduced quaternary amine algaecide usage by 25% in the first year with expectation to reduce usage as much as 50% in the second year
About the speakers:
Kathy Hall is a Senior Environmental Scientist with LimnoTech, where her work focuses primarily on effluent permitting for point sources and support for regulated discharges. She has extensive experience working with state regulators to resolve NPDES permit issues for clients, particularly in the energy, mining, and manufacturing sectors. Kathy has served as technical lead on water quality assessments, thermal discharge evaluations, and negotiation of site-specific effluent limits for toxics, nutrients, and conventional pollutants for a variety of private-sector clients.
Lisa Brand is the Chief Technology Officer and Co-founder of LG Sonic. This innovative, Dutch company develops technologies to monitor and control algal blooms on large scale. In the last years, they have grown to a global company with projects in 96 countries worldwide. They work with drinking water companies, government, and (nuclear) power plants, to remediate large lakes and reservoirs without the use of chemicals.
Brian Snyder is a chemist in the Chemical and Environmental Compliance Department of NIPSCO Generation. He began his career in the utility industry as an environmental chemist for American Electric Power in 2003. He began to focus on power plant cycle chemistry and cooling water chemistry in 2014. He started his career at NIPSCO in 2017.
