  • Survival of multi-drug resistant enteropathogenic Escherichia coli and Salmonella paratyphi in Vembanadu lake as a function of saltwater barrier along southwest coast of India

    The objective of the study was to evaluate the survival response of multi-drug resistant enteropathogenic Escherichia coli and Salmonella paratyphi to the salinity fluctuations induced by a saltwater barrier constructed in Vembanadu lake, which separates the lake into a freshwater dominated southern and brackish water dominated northern part. Therefore, microcosms containing ...

  • Desalination using spray tower and vapour compression refrigeration system

    A desalination system using a spray tower and Vapour Compression Refrigeration (VCR) system is proposed for obtaining fresh water from brackish water. In the spray tower, simultaneous heat and mass transfer take place between the brackish water and air, which results in the evaporation of the brackish water and humidification of the air. Fresh water is obtained from the humidified air by ...

  • Comparative study of body composition of different fish species from brackish water pond

    Seven species of fish (Catla catla, Cirrhinus mrigala, Cyprinus carpio, Hypophthalmicthys molitrix, Labeo rohita, Mori-Rahu Hybrid and Thalla-Rahu Hybrid) were collected from a brackish water pond near Muzaffargarh, Pakistan for the comparison of body composition. All the seven species were found relatively well adapted to the saline environment though some of them showed significant differences ...

  • Algal-available phosphorus entering the gulf of finland as estimated by Algal assays and chemical analyses

    Received for publication August 11, 2008. Algal-available phosphorus (Paa) in river water and wastewater entering the Gulf of Finland (a Baltic Sea sub-basin) was estimated by a fresh-water and a brackish-water modification of the dual-culture algal assay. The assay results were further related to those obtained by routine chemical analyses. According to the brackish-water assay, an average of ...

  • Evaluation of new generation brackish water RO

    Since the development of brackish water reverse osmosis (RO) membranes their use has seen rapid development.  All major RO membrane manufacturers have developed one or more brackish water RO membranes.  In the last ten years these membranes have seen a large decrease in price and an increase in productivity making brackish groundwater desalination an attractive option in water scarce regions.  ...

  • The potential for desalination in India

    The demand for water in India is increasing rapidly owing to progressive increase in the use of water for irrigation, rapid industrialisation, population growth and improving life standards. A holistic approach is therefore required to cope with the freshwater needs of the country. It includes: seawater desalination in coastal areas; brackish water desalination; water purification; water reuse; ...

  • Brackish groundwater desalination on the rise

    Brackish water is water that is more saline than fresh. It’s not quite as saline as seawater, but it’s still too salty to be used without treatment. Typically, advanced treatment technologies — reverse osmosis and ultrafiltration, as well as other membrane-based technologies — are needed to purify and desalinate brackish groundwater before its use. Brackish groundwater ...

  • Brackish Water as a Resource

    There’s a great deal of talk and debate about the value of treating brackish water, or water that is more saline than fresh water, but not quite as saline as seawater. Brackish water can result from the mixing of seawater with fresh water, as in surface waters such as estuaries or other watery ecosystems, or it can occur underground in aquifers. Salinity Levels Although ...

  • Report: California’s Reliance on brackish water desalination to increase

    Years of drought in California may result in the state becoming more reliant on brackish water desalination, according to the Pacific Institute. In “The Cost of Alternative Water Supply and Efficiency Options in California,” the Oakland-based nonprofit research institute looks at the costs of potential water supply sources and other economic factors. The institute states: ...

  • On the performance limitation of reverse osmosis water desalination systems

    The performance of Reverse Osmosis (RO) water desalination processes was investigated using a simulated brackish water plant based on spiral-wound membranes. A semi-rigorous mathematical model was employed in the simulation to calculate the water and salt fluxes at any point along the filtration channel. The effects of two key parameters, namely the transmembrane pressure and membrane surface ...

  • Boron removal from brackish water by reverse osmosis and nanofiltration membranes: application of Spiegler–Kedem model and optimization

    Drinking water should contain certain chemicals only in limited quantities. Boron, one of these chemicals which is considered as a threatening compound and is difficult to eliminate from water. The purpose of the research is to study the major role of reverse osmosis (RO) and nanofiltration (NF) process which can contribute to the removal of this inorganic element from brackish water. For this ...
