Technology and Equipment for Water Loss Management

With increasing emphasis on conserving scarce water resources and maintaining efficiency of supply today's water utility operators are increasingly encouraged to drive down leakage and other losses to the economic level.

Best Practice Guide on the Control of Arsenic in Drinking Water

This Best Practice Guide on the Control of Arsenic in Drinking Water arises from the knowledge collected by the European Research Network COST Action 637 involving 27 European countries and the USA. Besides the large number of important papers, reports and reviews already available on various aspects of arsenic occurrence in environment, water and food and related human exposure, this book fills a gap in the field concerning assessment of risk

Best Practice Guide on the Control of Iron and Manganese in Water Supply

This Best Practice Guide on the Control of Iron and Manganese in Water Supply is one of a series produced by the International Water Association’s Specialist Group on Metals and Related Substances in Drinking Water. Iron and manganese are often found in soft upland water sources associated with natural organic matter and are also commonly found in the groundwaters abstracted from confined and unconfined aquifers.

Computational Hydraulics - Numerical Methods and Modelling

Computational Hydraulics introduces the concept of modeling and the contribution of numerical methods and numerical analysis to modeling. It provides a concise and comprehensive description of the basic hydraulic principles, and the problems addressed by these principles in the aquatic environment. Flow equations, numerical and analytical solutions are included.

Arsenic in Groundwater: Poisoning and Risk Assessment

The main focus of Arsenic in Groundwater: Poisoning and Risk Assessment is to explore the untold stories of groundwater arsenic in view of its poisonous nature for human health, social implications, exposure and risk assessment, worldwide concentrations with space-time dimension, micro level GIS application in spatial arsenic concentration, policy response and mitigation options, and water right and legal issues of safe drinking water. There a

Microbial Growth in Drinking Water Distribution Systems - Problems, Causes, Prevention and Research Needs

Maintaining the microbial quality in distribution systems and connected installations remains a challenge for the water supply companies all over the world, despite many years of research. This book identifies the main concerns and knowledge gaps related to regrowth and stimulate cooperation in future research.

Membrane Biological Reactors - Theory, Modeling, Design, Management and Applications to Wastewater Reuse

In recent years the MBR market has experienced unprecedented growth. The best practice in the field is constantly changing and unique quality requirements and management issues are regularly emerging.

Handbook of Environmental Odour Management

Complaints due to odour annoyance have become a major issue for wastewater treatment plant, waste management, landfill, intensive livestock and other industrial operators as the repeated release of unpleasant odorous emissions can constitute a nuisance to a local population. Traditionally, odour management has been maintained by the use of buffer distances between industry and receptors or by the installation of odour abatement systems that bo

Managing Climate Risk in Water Supply Systems

Water resources systems provide multiple services and, if managed properly, can contribute significantly to social well-being and economic growth. However, extreme or unexpected hydroclimatic conditions, such as droughts and floods, can adversely affect or even completely interrupt these services.  This manual seeks to provide knowledge, resources and techniques for water resources professionals to manage the risks and opportunities arisi

Milestones in Water Reuse - The Best Success Stories

Milestones in Water Reuse: The Best Success Stories illustrates the benefits of water reuse in integrated water resources management and its role for water cycle management, climate change adaptation and water in the cities of the future. Selected case studies are used to illustrate the different types of water reuse, i.e. agricultural irrigation, golf course and landscape irrigation, urban and industrial uses, environmental enhancement, as we

Management of Change in Water Companies - Case Studies of Moving Fast from Bad to Good to Great

Management of Change in Water Companies tells real stories of real water companies that went through processes of change and achieved their best results ever in just a few years. It reflects the personal experience of the author from leading processes of change in five different water supply/sewage companies, between 10 and 120 years old and serving from 200,000 to 4,000,000 people.

Benchmarking of Control Strategies for Wastewater Treatment Plants

Wastewater treatment plants are large non-linear systems subject to large perturbations in wastewater flow rate, load and composition. Nevertheless these plants have to be operated continuously, meeting stricter and stricter regulations.

Artificial Recharge: Technology and Systems for the Creation of Drinking Water from Surface Water – ARTDEMO

The term Artificial Recharge (AR) covers a range of technologies that typically utilise the natural cleaning capacity of natural subsoil systems to produce drinking water from surface water. Artificial Recharge: Technology and Systems for the Creation of Drinking Water from Surface Water demonstrates a management tool that uses sophisticated monitoring systems linking automatic real-time data acquisition and available on-line sensor systems an

Designing and Optimizing Drinking Water Treatment Processes - A Guide to Conducting Investigations

Water treatment facilities normally have a design life of several decades or more and represent a major capital investment and normally significant ongoing operating costs. The optimal design of such facilities typically requires on-site investigations, and Designing and Optimizing Drinking Water Treatment Processes focuses on the important factors that must be considered in planning and conducting such investigations.

Making Space for the River - Governance experiences with multifunctional river flood management in the US and Europe

This book examines recent developments in river (flood) management from the viewpoint of Making Space for the River and the resulting challenges for water governance. Different examples from Europe and the United States of America are discussed that aim to ‘green’ rivers, including increasing river discharge for flood management, enhancing natural and landscape values, promoting local or regional economic development, and urban reg

Animal Waste, Water Quality and Human Health

Domestic animals contaminate recreational waters and drinking-water sources with excreta and pathogens; but this threat to public health is inadequately understood and is insufficiently addressed in regulations. More than 85% of the world’s faecal wastes is from domestic animals such as poultry, cattle, sheep and pigs. These animals harbor zoonotic pathogens that are transported in the environment by water, especially runoff. However lit

Innovations in Project Design for the Water Sector - Suggestions for Enhanced Financial Sustainability

Public sector funding and resources are often inadequate to meet increasing demands for investment and effective management, and a growing case history shows increasing involvement by the private sector in provision of infrastructure and services through PPP arrangements. The objective of this book is to determine, and make recommendations on, means of optimizing the use of Public Private Partnerships (PPP) in development of infrastructure whi

Uncertainty in Wastewater Treatment Design and Operation - Addressing Current Practices and Future Directions

Uncertainty in Wastewater Treatment Design and Operation aims to facilitate the transition of the wastewater profession to the probabilistic use of simulators with the associated benefits of being better able to take advantage of opportunities and manage risk.

Water Services Management and Governance - Lessons for a Sustainable Future

Water Services Management and Governance focuses on water services (Water supply, wastewater services) and deals with connections between water resources and services and water resources. The book covers water supply mainly in urban communities, sanitation and pollution control and water resources and their linkages to water services.
