Water Policy Entrepreneurs: A Research Companion to Water Transitions around the Globe

‘Unsurpassed in the scope of its coverage, this book explores like no other the roles of policy entrepreneurs and the causes of policy change across diverse political systems ranging from the developing world to the largest western democracies. The studies show how entrepreneurs work with outside donors, take advantage of windows of political opportunity, create those windows, and push the policy process in the direction they hope. They

Wastewater Sludge

It is well recognized everywhere that management of sludge derived from wastewater treatment is one of the most critical environmental issues, due to the very fast increase in sludge production as a result of sewerage extension, new installations and upgrading of existing facilities. Within this general picture, sludge is produced under different technical, economic and social contexts, thus requiring different approaches.This report

Young Researchers 2004

The selection of papers in this special issue of WEMS illustrates the various aspects of water and wastewater treatment and management. These papers were presented at the 2nd Young Researchers Conference held on 23-24 April 2004, at the University of Wageningen, The Netherlands. It was organised on behalf of the International Water Association (IWA) and supported by the European Symposium of Environmental Biotechnology (ESEB 2000).

Minewater Treatment

Biffaward Winner 2002. The Clean Rivers Trust has fought off stiff competition to become the Research and Development - Technology Category winner at the Biffaward Awards 2002, with its project ‘Technology Analysis of Acid Mine Drainage Treatment Methods’.

Process Science and Engineering for Water and Wastewater Treatment

Process Science and Engineering for Water and Wastewater Treatment is the first in a new series of distance learning course books from IWA Publishing. The new series intends to help readers become familiar with design, operation and management of water and wastewater treatment processes without having to refer to any other texts.

The Combined Sharon/Anammox Process

Wastewater treatment management, alongside many other industries, is seeking to attain a higher degree of sustainability for its processes by focusing on new technologies which minimise the consumption of resources or even recover them from the wastewater.

Condition Assessment for Wastewater Pipelines: Synthesis Report

The research results presented in this report were compiled to provide a clearer understanding of the state of the technology for wastewater pipeline condition assessment methodologies and technologies, focusing primarily on the geographic regions of the U.S.A. An extensive literature review was performed, covering conference papers, journal articles, vendor literature, and major reports. Additionally, approximately 50 detailed case studies ...

Cost Information for Wastewater Pipelines: Synthesis Report

The research presented in this report was performed in order to compile and better understand the total costs of some commonplace wastewater pipeline condition assessment and renewal engineering methodologies and technologies in the U.S. An extensive literature review was performed, covering all pertinent sources from the body of knowledge. Additionally, detailed case studies describing utility wastewater pipeline condition assessment and ...

Development of Design Criteria for Denitrifying Treatment Wetlands

Subsurface wetlands are well suited for on-site applications because they provide odor and vector control and they mitigate public access issues (U.S. EPA, 1993). Artificial subsurface wetlands are typically designed with an inert rock medium, can be either planted or unplanted, and are designed so that the water flows below the surface of the wetlands through the porous medium. The medium provides a surface area for the growth of bacterial ...

Experimental Methods in Wastewater Treatment

Over the past twenty years, the knowledge and understanding of wastewater treatment has advanced extensively and moved away from empirically based approaches to a fundamentally-based first principles approach embracing chemistry, microbiology, and physical and bioprocess engineering, often involving experimental laboratory work and techniques. Many of these experimental methods and techniques have matured to the degree that they have been ...

Management Practice for Wastewater Pipelines: Synthesis Report

This report presents state-of-the-art literature and current practice review of management practices for wastewater pipelines. These practices focus on the pipe condition evaluation and prediction, risk analysis, and renewal prioritization. In the background part, this report introduced the basic concept and core questions of asset management. The linkage between this research focus and the asset management core questions were introduced. The ...

Nitrogen Removal and Sustainability of Vertical Flow Constructed Wetlands for Small Scale Wastewater Treatment

The goals of environmental sustainability, through minimizing resource use, maximizing energy efficiency, reducing waste emissions, enabling recycling, and increasing resilience are becoming primary in wastewater treatment, along with traditional goals of protecting human health and water quality. Sustainable designs, defined as design of human/industrial systems to ensure that use of natural resources and cycles do not lead to diminished ...

Renewal Engineering for Wastewater: Synthesis Report

The research presented in this report was performed in order to compile and better understand the state of the technology for wastewater pipeline renewal engineering methodologies and technologies, focusing primarily on the geographic regions of the U.S.A. An extensive literature review was performed, covering conference papers, journal articles, vendor literature, and major reports. Additionally, detailed case studies describing utility ...

Research Digest: Decision Analysis/Implementation Guidance _x0013_ Asset Management Tools Development, Phase 3

In 2006, at the direction of its members through a series of facilitated national focus groups, WERF launched a multi-year research and development project to strengthen the practice of Asset Management. The Project is called the Strategic Asset Management (SAM) project. It is comprised of four separate but integrated Tracks. Track 3 of WERFs Strategic Asset Management Project was developed to provide guidance on implementing SAM&and develop ...

Research Roadmap: Towards an Economic Decision Methodology for Remaining Asset Life

This report is an output of the fourth research track (Track 4) of WERF’s strategic asset management research program ‘Asset Management Communication and Implementation’ (RFPP #06-SAM-1 CO). Track 4 was developed to address ‘remaining asset life’, with the overall objective of contributing to the development of techniques, tools and methods for estimating residual life of wastewater assets. Track 4 research was planned to be undertaken in a ...

Resource Recovery from Wastewater: A Research Agenda for Australia

Traditionally wastewater treatment involved the removal of pollutants from wastewater to allow it to be discharged to the environment. This initially concentrated on carbon removal, but as environmental requirements became more stringent it was expanded to cover nitrogen and phosphorus removal. With increasing energy costs, more stringent environmental discharge limits and greater implementation of water sensitive urban design the economic ...

Trace Organic Chemicals in Biosolids-Amended Soils: State-of-the-Science Review

The presence of trace organic chemicals (TOrCs) in municipal biosolids in the U.S. has received considerable attention by the public and scientific community over the last several years.  Of particular concern is whether the presence of TOrCs in biosolids results in significant risks to public health and the environment upon land application of the biosolids.  While the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has evaluated the risks associated with ...
