Irish Water completes works to provide safe and secure drinking water…

first_imgAdvertisement IRISH Water has completed upgrade works to the Croom Water Supply Scheme which will help ensure a clean, safe and secure supply for the area into the future.This investment benefits over 1,700 customers and has led to the removal of this supply from the EPA’s Remedial Action List (RAL).Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Previous articleScéalta Grá na hÉireann – 6-part series about Ireland’s Greatest Love Stories Grace O’Malley & Iron Richard Bourke Wednesday 17th 8:30pm TG4.Next articleLimerick Company among the winners at National Enterprise Awards Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie Irish Water continues to work with our Local Authority partners, contractors and others to safeguard the health and well-being of both staff and the public and to ensure the continuity of critical drinking water and wastewater services. Irish Water would like to remind people to follow the HSE COVID-19 advice and ensure frequent handwashing.

Combined with other related upgrades in the disinfection and telemetry systems, it will help improve the safety, security and resilience of the supply.“Croom is a growing and vibrant village and having a safe, secure water supply is essential to its ongoing development. For this reason we are very pleased to have completed this important upgrade to the water supply infrastructure in the area.”This project is one example of how Irish Water is working in partnership with Limerick City & County Council every day to address deficiencies in Limerick’s water network and safeguard water supplies for communities around the county. Upgrade work is also underway at present in Pallagreen, Oola and Fedamore.

Southern Ocean deep-water carbon export enhanced by natural iron fertilization

first_imgThe addition of iron to high- nutrient, low- chlorophyll regions induces phytoplankton blooms that take up carbon(1-3). Carbon export from the surface layer and, in particular, the ability of the ocean and sediments to sequester carbon for many years remains, however, poorly quantified(3). Here we report data from the CROZEX experiment(4) in the Southern Ocean, which was conducted to test the hypothesis that the observed north – south gradient in phytoplankton concentrations in the vicinity of the Crozet Islands is induced by natural iron fertilization that results in enhanced organic carbon flux to the deep ocean. We report annual particulate carbon fluxes out of the surface layer, at three kilometres below the ocean surface and to the ocean floor. We find that carbon fluxes from a highly productive, naturally iron-fertilized region of the sub- Antarctic Southern Ocean are two to three times larger than the carbon fluxes from an adjacent high-nutrient, low- chlorophyll area not fertilized by iron. Our findings support the hypothesis that increased iron supply to the glacial sub- Antarctic may have directly enhanced carbon export to the deep ocean(5). The CROZEX sequestration efficiency(6) ( the amount of carbon sequestered below the depth of winter mixing for a given iron supply) of 8,600 mol mol(-1) was 18 times greater than that of a phytoplankton bloom induced artificially by adding iron(7), but 77 times smaller than that of another bloom(8) initiated, like CROZEX, by a natural supply of iron. Large losses of purposefully added iron can explain the lower efficiency of the induced bloom(6). The discrepancy between the blooms naturally supplied with iron may result in part from an underestimate of horizontal iron supply.last_img read more

However, Ikpeba said the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) will do well to give the Franco-German coach a new deal based on what he has so far achieved with the team. “We’re still not the best team in Africa, but we have made some progress under Rohr, who has pushed his youthful team to play at the World Cup and finish third at the AFCON,” he argued.Advertisement Former Super Eagles star, Victor Ikpeba, has urged Nigeria Football Federation to extend the contract of Gernot Rohr. “We now need to give him a long-term deal so that he can continue the good work he has started.” Rohr first took charge of Nigeria in 2016, before the contract was extended till 2020.
