Fresh water is one of the planets most critical resources essential to all land based life
It is also one of the planets most rapidly diminishing resources. Conservation and protection of existing supplies and the rehabilitation of degraded sources are one of the most urgent problems facing humanity today.
Water agencies and private water companies are tasked with the challenge of developing and maintaining sustainable water supplies, often centered on groundwater. Since 1987, the Westbay System has provided water managers with the flexibility to characterize groundwater in four-dimensions, leading to the optimization of management activities and the development of sustainable management practices.
US Peroxide (USP) provides turn-key chemical management and field service programs to engineering companies and remediation technology applicators using In-Situ Chemical Oxidation (ISCO) or other technologies requiring chemical storage and handling. USP programs have proven to be cost effective and highly efficient using custom-designed chemical handling and management programs deployed by highly skilled field service teams.
USP can supply a wide range of chemicals such as hydrogen peroxide, ferrous...

One of the greatest problems facing the planet is the management, conservation and equitable distribution of fresh water supplies. The fresh water sources may be lakes, rivers or ground water aquifers, most of which are now under stress.
Pore pressure variability and control is one of the most significant aspects of Geotechnical Engineering practice related to slope stability, underground openings, foundation of heavy structures, and water retention facilities. Pore pressure effects are most often controlled by natural small-scale hydrogeologic details. Characterization and management of pore pressures requires closely-arrayed repeated measurements to determine the effects of these details for design of appropriate mitigation measures, for...
Since 1982, QED has been the leading supplier of air-powered pumps for groundwater sampling, leachate and condensate management, providing expertise in groundwater monitoring, leachate level control and methane recovery systems and equipment to landfills ranging from small municipal facilities to large industrial and military sites, including the leading national and international solid waste management companies.

InfraCal TOG/TPH Analyzers allow for TPH (Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons) in soil testing at remediation sites such as leaking underground storage tanks and produced water evaporation ponds. Site managers can avoid having costly soil remediation equipment sit idle while waiting for off-site lab results. Sampling requires a few simple steps that can be performed by non-technical personnel. The soil is mixed with the extraction solvent, shaken, filtered, and then presented to the InfraCal Analyzer for measurement....
The largest threat to wetlands is the risk of being flooded with sediment as a result of a poorly managed construction site. Most construction projects require erosion control to prevent damage to the wetlands.
Our porous pavement solutions can be designed for use with a variety of permeable fill to suit any loading and stormwater requirements. Three high-performance paving options offer porous solutions to hard surface pavements: GEOBLOCK grass pavers; GEOPAVE aggregate pavers; and GEOWEB pervious soil stabilization systems - all economical options for emergency, utility and site access roads, and permeable parking areas. Each solution is suitable for low impact development (LID) and green infrastructure design and...
All construction affects groundwater and a water management plan will be required.
From deforestation to urbanisation, from holes to heaps and dams to drains, they all have an affect on the groundwater.
Deforestation causes an increase in the rate of run off of rainwater resulting in lower percolation of precipitation into the soil and a consequent increase in soil erosion leading to slope instability, hence land and mud slides. The increased rate of run off can cause small streams and large rivers to rise and...
The WFD is the most substantial piece of water legislation ever produced by the European Commission, and will provide the major driver for achieving sustainable management of water in the UK and other EU Member States for many years to come.
It requires that all inland and coastal waters within defined river basin districts must reach at least good status by 2015 and defines how this should be achieved through the establishment of environmental objectives and ecological targets for surface waters.
Use KISTERS solutions to manage all of the various data from your Urban Water Management programs. From water distribution to water treatment, infiltration and inflow studies, groundwater, as well as long term precipitation monitoring and real time control systems. An optional water quality module is also available to manage your discrete sample data.
Sustainable Solutions for Future Water Challenges. Rising population levels and more groundwater sources becoming polluted have resulted in clean water becoming increasingly scarce in many countries around the world. As governments and municipal bodies turn to alternative sources of water, such as seawater, brackish water and groundwater, they require cost effective technologies to produce potable water while managing waste water discharge for smart, sustainable water management.
