Adsorptive Iron Removal from Groundwater

by CRC Press/Taylor & Francis Group

A pilot study conducted at the Gilze water treatment plant of Water Supply North West Brabant demonstrated that adsorptive filtration has several potential advantages over floc filtration, namely: longer filter runs due to slower head loss development; better filtrate quality; shorter ripening time; and less backwash water use. In existing ...;

Management of Combined Sewer Overflows

by CRC Press/Taylor & Francis Group

There are approximately 10,000 combined sewer overflow (CSO) locations in the United States. During peak storm events they can release about 1.2 trillion gallons of waste and up to 95% of a municipality´s raw sewage into surface waters. Although many cities have initiated programs, the CSO problem remains largely unsolved and continues to be a ...;

The Basics of Oil Spill Cleanup, Second Edition

by CRC Press/Taylor & Francis Group

Constant media attention on oil spills has created global awareness of their risks and the damage they do. Often under-reported is the average cost of the cleanup - often as high as $200 per liter of oil spilled. Oil is a necessity in today´s industrial society, and since our dependence on it is not likely to and any time soon, we will continue to ...;
