STUDENT SPOTLIGHT

FOR THIS PROJECT, WE
NEEDED TO SOLVE A MASSIVE
ISSUE THREATENING A VITAL
HUMAN RESOURCE - CLEAN
DRINKING WATER. TO DO THIS,
WE HAD TO CREATE A PARADIGM
SHIFT FROM TRADITIONAL
SEWAGE MANAGEMENT
TECHNIQUES AND DEVELOP A
TAILORED APPROACH.
- Dylan Verberg

undergraduate student, will continue where Verburg left off in India, performing water
quality assessments and maintenance.
Verburg is now producing a water pollution lesson plan for high school students in
India. His educational module will focus on the need for change or creative thinking,
to find alternative cost and effective time solutions to curb water pollution. Simone will
deliver the lessons to select schools in New Delhi.
Dr. Rajesh Seth, P.Eng., a UWindsor engineering professor who specializes in water
and wastewater treatment, including advanced oxidation processes, is leading the
project.
"One of most effective ways to improve water quality is using microorganisms to
break down pollution," Dr. Seth said. "Biological treatment with microorganisms is
faster when dissolved oxygen is in the water. So, if we want to improve the rate of
treatment of heavily contaminated water - and we use it quite extensively in waste
water treatment in North America - we need to find an efficient and cost-effective way
to replenish the dissolved oxygen that is quickly consumed."
Canadianpond.ca Products Ltd., a Quebec company that designs and manufactures
Bubble TubingĀ®, covered the costs of equipment and related infrastructure for this
project. The company's linear aeration system doesn't require extensive infrastructure
support and can be easily adapted to work directly in lakes and ponds.
Verburg created a blog to document the successes and obstacles experienced
throughout his work on the project and to share stories about the people he met while
immersing himself in a new culture. His blog is posted at uwindsor.ca/engineering/
dylan-verburg.
"Looking back, this has been an absolutely amazing, eye-opening experience that
has helped me grow, mature and develop skills professionally as well as personally,"
Verburg said.

Partial funding for
student support
was provided by the
Canadian Queen
Elizabeth II Diamond
Jubilee Scholarship
Program; and additional
in-kind support by the
Council of Scientific
& Industrial Research
(CSIR) - National
Environmental
Engineering Research
Institute (NEERI);
the Delhi Government
and the University of
Windsor.
