The present work confirms previous observations made by others that heat shock is followed by a period of protection against tissue injury. Furthermore, this protection against associated with HSP 72 production. We have identified some detrimental effects of heat shock as a technique for induction of the HSR. Clearly there exists in living tissues a highly(More)
Quebec Urban Community (QUC) has selected Global Predictive Real-Time Control (GP-RTC) as the most efficient approach to achieve environmental objectives defined by the Ministry of Environment. QUC wants to reduce combined sewer overflows (CSOs) frequency to the St Lawrence river to two events per summer period in order to reclaim the use of Jacques-Cartier(More)
After the construction of its wastewater treatment plants, the City of Quebec began to implement overflow control in wet weather to ultimately meet the effluent discharge objectives, i.e. no more than two overflows per summer season in the St. Lawrence River and no more than four in the St-Charles River. After several years of studies to determine which(More)
The risk of flooding due to measurement errors, equipment and software defaults or power failures is the highest priority of wet-weather management of collection systems. It is consequently not surprising that safety and reliability issues are raised when looking at the automatic control of sewer networks for better CSO control. If not properly designed, a(More)
