  • Water quality management for domestic rainwater harvesting systems in Fiji

    Health risks from drinking rainwater are relatively small in the developing world context, but action is needed to ensure water safety. Water safety plans (WSPs) use an approach to manage water quality that has shown signs of success with public and communal water supplies, but relatively little research has been done to investigate the application of WSPs to self-supply systems. The aim of this ...

  • Classification of contaminants and treatability evaluation of domestic wastewater

    Long-term sampling and analysis were conducted in a domestic wastewater treatment plant for the investigation on the characteristics of the representative contaminants in raw sewage such as SS, COD, BOD5, TP, and TN. All these constituents were classified into dissolved and suspended groups by using a 0.45-μm membrane filter, and the concentration of each constituent in each group was ...

  • A water balance approach for assessing the potential source of water in Dohuk Dam for agricultural, domestic and tourism purposes

    Water balance approaches have been widely used to stimulate and forecast the average runoff and river discharge in small- and medium-sized basins. The analysis of water balance for Feesh Khabour River and Dohuk Dam catchment areas needs to be verified. This study used 24 alternative scenarios for assessing the robustness of adaptation decisions to water management practices. The discharge of ...

  • Mercury Analysis

    Characteristics of Mercury What is Mercury? Mercury is a naturally occurring silver-colored metallic element noted for its occurrence as a liquid at room temperature and toxic to living organisms. This silvery, opaque liquid metal is very dense, yet has a high surface tension that causes it to form tiny perfect spheres in the pores of the rocks it is found in. It is ...

  • Indian Water Purifier Market 2014 Analysis

    This latest market research report titled Water Purifier Market in India 2014 states that the domestic water purifier market is set to experience steady growth as people are becoming more aware of the utility of water purifiers in India. As initial consumer reactions and water purifier reviews have been largely positive, the adoption of the same will only improve over the years. Also, the market ...


  • Analysis of water pricing in Ireland and recommendations towards a more efficient water sector

    Within Ireland, both the public water supply and group water scheme (GWS) sectors are crucial entities in the provision of water supply to individuals. In this study, variances in water charges and operation are assessed via an in-depth survey of 104 GWSs in order to establish the range in both domestic and commercial charges, and also to establish the factors influencing these charges within ...

  • Water budget analysis and management for Bangkok Metropolis, Thailand

    The water budget of the Bangkok Metropolis system was analyzed using a material flow analysis model. Total imported flows into the system were 80,080 million m3 per year (Mm3 y–1) including inflows from the Chao Phraya and Mae Klong rivers and rainwater. Total exported flows out of the system were 78,528 Mm3 y–1 including outflow into the lower Chao ...

  • Development and application of biogas project for domestic sewage treatment in rural China: opportunities and challenges

    The biogas project for domestic sewage treatment (BPDST) is considered a promising facility for wastewater management in rural areas of China. This paper explores previous experimental works, cost analysis, and BPDST structure and design based on Chinese literature. Opportunities for developing decentralized or neighborhood-based BPDSTs include fulfilling Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) ...

  • Domestic shower hose biofilms contain fungal species capable of causing opportunistic infection

    The domestic environment can be a source of pathogenic bacteria. We show here that domestic shower hoses may harbour potentially pathogenic bacteria and fungi. Well-developed biofilms were physically removed from the internal surface of shower hoses collected in four locations in England and Scotland. Amplicon pyrosequencing of 16S and 18S rRNA targets revealed the presence of common aquatic ...

  • Situation analysis of China’s wastewater discharge

    Great progress has been made in reducing China’s water pollution after decades of efforts. From the perspective of wastewater discharge, the situation of wastewater discharge since 1985 is analysed in this study, with importance attached to industrial wastewater, including wastewater from township enterprises, and to municipal domestic wastewater. In general, the total wastewater discharge in ...

  • A network analysis of transboundary water cooperation in La Plata Basin

    When do countries cooperate in transboundary waters? One of the largest in the world, the La Plata Basin covers part of Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Paraguay, and Uruguay. These five countries co-manage the basin through a network of legal agreements, domestic and international organizations, and cooperative projects. In this paper, we examine the network structure of cross-national water ...

  • Thermal energy from drinking water and cost benefit analysis for an entire city

    The municipality of Almere is planning to develop a new carbon neutral neighbourhood. The area is located close to a treated water storage facility. By extracting enough thermal energy to provide 900 homes with energy for space heating and heating tap water, the temperature of the treated water is lowered by 1.16 °C. This could lead to an increase in the energy required to heat water for ...
