Brief description Part of the Urban Water Security Research Alliance, this project focused on the viability of a number of products on the reduction in evaporation that can be achieved for SEQ water storages. It addresses the use of surface films and the potential impacts of these surface films on water quality and ecology. Together with the CRC for polymers, the key questions explored include:
How effective are surface films at reducing evaporation over long periods of time?
What influence do wind and wave action have on surface film effectiveness?
What are the effects of applying surface films on water quality, lake ecology, water treatment process and human health?
