Great Lakes Pollution
Hello! I am writing to you in regards to a school project where we are doing a project on the Great Lakes pollution. I would like to know, What kind of pollution is the most detrimental to the Great Lakes health? Why? If you could ban one of the types of pollution, what would it be?, Why? Finally, What shape do you think that the Lakes will be in 2 years, 5 years and 10 years.

Water standards and informatin about chemicals to clean heat exchangers
I am a metallurgist. My client wants me to recommend a new material for heat exchanger tubing used at a waste water plant because of corrosion problems. He has given me tables of water data. I don't know how to interpret them. I need to find out what the "worst" stuff is. Please provide me with water information. Parameters he has given me are: Alkalinity, Ammonia, Fecal Coli.,CBOD5, KN, soluble, Nitrate-N, Total suspension, Volatile suspension, Sulfate.. and more (usually g/ml). He also wants me to recommend any testing he might need to do for other water parameters. I don't think typical things like Fe, Ca, are an issue.
