  • Optimum conditions for high-speed solid–liquid separation by ballasted flocculation Reviewed

    In the ballasted flocculation, high-speed sedimentation of suspensions is achieved using a microsand as a ballast material and a polymer flocculant combined with microflocs made of polyaluminum chloride (PAC) as an inorganic coagulant. In this study, three turbid water samples containing kaolin clay (kaolin concentration: 20, 200, and 500 mg/L) were treated by coagulation–sedimentation and ballasted flocculation. The effects of pH and PAC dosage, which are the controlling parameters for coagulation, and the microsand (silica sand) and polymer dosages, which are the controlling parameters for ballasted treatment, on the treatment efficiency and floc settling velocity were examined. The floc settling velocity under the optimum conditions was 17 times higher than that of the conventional coagulation–sedimentation process using PAC. The turbidity was 0.54 turbidity unit (TU) (TU as the kaolin standard), and its removal efficiency was 99.7%. Furthermore, turbid water samples with different kaolin concentrations (20 and 500 mg/L) were treated via the ballasted flocculation. In this study, fundamental information on the optimization of each dosage condition of coagulant, ballast, and polymer and pH condition in ballasted flocculation was obtained, and the removal mechanisms under optimal, underoptimistic and overoptimistic conditions were proposed.

  • Highly sensitive detection and quantification of dissolved free extracellular DNA using colloid adsorption and foam concentration Reviewed

    Dissolved free extracellular DNA (exDNA), DNA released outside the cell, is present in aquatic environments at very low concentrations. Additionally, exDNA passes through a 0.22 μm filter, making it difficult to capture for analysis. Thus, information on exDNA is scarce, and the composition of genes present in exDNA is unknown. In this study, we developed a process for highly concentrating exDNA adsorbed on colloids and then dissolving the colloids with an acid using colloidal adsorption and foam concentration. After applying this strategy, 66.3% ± 3.3% of the uidA gene and 39.4% ± 2.4% of the tetA gene were recovered from genomic DNA carrying the uidA gene and plasmids carrying the tetA gene (n = 3), respectively. Using the developed method, 1000 mL of effluent of a wastewater treatment plant was concentrated to 400 μL, and exDNA was rapidly recovered at a high concentration (concentration ratio: 2500×). Furthermore, metagenomic analysis revealed the function of some exDNA genes, such as those encoding antibiotic resistance proteins. The information revealed in this study contributes to the elucidation of the mechanisms of horizontal gene transfer in aquatic environments.

    High counts of bacteria are present in beach sand, and human health threats attributable to contact with sand have been reported. In this study, we investigated fecal indicator bacteria in the top surface sand of coastal beaches. Monitoring investigations were performed during a monsoon when rainfall occurs randomly, and the composition of the coliforms was analyzed. The coliform count in the top surface sand (depth < 1 cm) increased by approximately 100 fold (26–2.23 × 103 CFU/100 g) with increasing water content because of precipitation. The composition of the coliforms in the top surface sand changed within 24 h of rainfall, with Enterobacter comprising more than 40% of the coliforms. Estimation of factors that changed the bacterial counts and composition revealed that coliform counts tended to increase with increasing water content in the top surface sand. However, the abundance of Enterobacter was independent of the sand surface temperature and water content. Coliform counts in the top surface sand rapidly increased and the composition showed remarkable variations because of the supply of water to the beach following rainfall. Among them, some bacteria with suspected pathogenicity were present. Controlling bacteria in coastal beaches is important for improving public health for beachgoers.

  • Development of softening and ballasted flocculation as a pretreatment process for seawater desalination through a reverse osmosis membrane Reviewed

    Efficient desalination through a reverse osmosis (RO) membrane requires the prior removal of blockade-causing substances from raw seawater. To achieve ultrahigh-speed processing of a pretreatment process for seawater RO desalination, we combine traditional softening with ballasted flocculation (SBF) for Ca2+ and Mg2+ removal. An alkaline mixture of Ca(OH)2 and Na2CO3 was the most suitable softening agent for Ca2+ and Mg2+ removal with a reduced amount of generated sludge. This softening treatment simultaneously removed the suspended solids and bacteria from actual seawater. The settling velocity of the suspended solids generated via seawater softening was extremely low. Under the optimum conditions for desalinating actual seawater using an anionic polymer flocculant and microsand, the settling velocity exceeded 3.5 cm/s, 833 times higher than that of softening without ballasted flocculation. The amount of sludge after standing for 3 min was 76.5% lower in SBF than in conventional softening. The silt density index of the treated seawater met the water-supply standard of RO membranes (i.e., <3.0). Furthermore, the SBF-generated sludge exhibited considerably improved dewatering property than the sludge obtained via conventional softening. SBF can efficiently and quickly remove the causative substances of RO membrane fouling from seawater, thereby improving the treatability of generated sludge. SBF provides a new pretreatment process for seawater desalination using RO membranes.

  • Simultaneous detection of various pathogenic Escherichia coli in water by sequencing multiplex PCR amplicons Reviewed

    Waterborne diseases due to pathogen contamination in water are a serious problem all over the world. Accurate and simultaneous detection of pathogens in water is important to protect public health. In this study, we developed a method to simultaneously detect various pathogenic Escherichia coli by sequencing the amplicons of multiplex PCR. Our newly designed multiplex PCR amplified five genes for pathogenic E. coli (uidA, stx1, stx2, STh gene, and LT gene). Additional two PCR assays (for aggR and eae) were also designed and included in the amplicon sequencing analysis. The same assays were also used for digital PCR (dPCR). Strong positive correlations were observed between the sequence read count and the dPCR results for most of the genes targeted, suggesting that our multiplex PCR-amplicon sequencing approach could provide quantitative information. The method was also successfully applied to monitor the level of pathogenic E. coli in river water and wastewater samples. The approach shown here could be expanded by targeting genes for other pathogens.

    本研究では,最重要な院内感染原因菌であり,一方で水環境のふん便汚染指標細菌でもある腸球菌をターゲットとする。都市河川上流から下流・河口に至る流域全体において,各流域から単離・同定した菌株について,重要な6~8種類の抗生物質に対する薬剤耐性試験を実施し,薬剤耐性菌の発現・集積エリアを推定する。その発現・集積エリアの環境を模して人工的環境によるin vitro実験を実施することによって,薬剤耐性の獲得が薬剤投与によるヒト体内のみであるのか,あるいは水環境においても耐性能力を獲得する可能性があるのかについて検討する。さらに,感染学分野で採用されているFilter Mating法を応用し,各条件におけるドナー株(薬剤耐性株)からレシピエント株(非耐性株)への薬剤耐性の伝搬率を測定し,薬剤耐性獲得・伝搬ポテンシャルを評価する。
