  • Water management miracle

    Eighteen months ago, the Townsends plant in Pittsboro, N.C., was placed in a very difficult position. The plant was severely handicapped from a lack of water and its ability to dispose of its waste process water; therefore, the plant wasn’t processing as many birds as Townsends wanted. Many plant employees feared their plant would close. “It had been an escalating problem, especially ...

  • Water resources management

    Managing regional or national water resources demands the integration of patterns and processes of both natural and social systems. This is essential to achieve the optimum interaction of man and nature since every aspect of water use and disposal impinges on ecosystems to a greater or lesser extent. Sustainability is the key issue: how can sustainable yields by abstraction from rivers, ...

  • Water and wastewater management in the treatment process of a Roman fullonica

    The aim of this paper is to study the treatment process of a Roman fullery (fullonica) with particular attention to the water and wastewater management system. Remains of several fullonicae have been documented at Pompeii and Herculaneum (Campania, Southern Italy), Ostia and Rome (Latium region, Central Italy), Florence (Tuscany, Central Italy), etc. The common academic ...

  • How to assess the effectiveness of energy management processes in water supply systems

    The main objectives that generally motivate the implementation of energy management strategies, suggestions of possible assessment criteria and corresponding performance measures are presented in a systematic way. A methodology based on the hydraulic energy balance along water pipe systems and four performance indices to assess energy efficiency is established. This methodology is applied to a ...

  • Stakeholder involvement in water management: the role of the stakeholder analysis within participatory processes

    Water is a central resource supporting human activities and ecosystems and it is required for different purposes and uses that are often conflicting. Existing water-related problems are expected to increase and conventional water resource management systems are not likely to be able to face future challenges. There is the need for an integrated water resources management, which should be ...

  • Analytical hierarchical process (AHP) as a decision support tool in water resources management

    Despite advances in water conservation, abstraction and transport, water demand has been increasing worldwide in the past few decades. This has resulted in an increased pressure on stakeholders to provide sustainable solutions to meet future water demands. The decision-making process to find those solutions is becoming increasingly complicated. First, owing to the arrival of new technologies or ...

  • Water Resources Management and Modeling

    Hydrology is the science that deals with the processes governing the depletion and replenishment of water resources of the earth's land areas. The purpose of this book is to put together recent developments on hydrology and water resources engineering. First section covers surface water modeling and second section deals with groundwater modeling. The aim of this book is to focus attention on the ...

  • A model for integrated water resources management in water-scarce regions: irrigation with wastewater combined with desalination processes

    We have developed a model for planning water supply from diverse sources, including groundwater, the National Water Carrier, wastewater and seawater. The model integrates hydrological, technological and economic considerations, and estimates the economic and environmental impacts of alternative water management policies; it was implemented in a case study of the Emek Heffer and northern Sharon ...

  • Waste Water Treatment Processes Explained

    SUNCOAST WASTE WATER MANAGEMENT  presents  AEROBIC -verses- ANAEROBIC THE AEROBIC PROCESS There are two basic types of sewerage treatment processes, which are the Aerobic process and the Anaerobic process. Aerobic means with air or oxygen and Anaerobic (septic) means without air or oxygen. Aerobic bacteria are a higher life form and when digesting waste are utilising dissolved oxygen or air in ...

  • Utilizing analytic hierarchy process (AHP) for decision making in water loss management of intermittent water supply systems

    Increasing water demands, in parallel with water scarcity, force water utilities in developing countries to follow complex operation techniques for the distribution of the available amounts of water. The reduction of water losses from water supply systems can help fill the gap between supply and demand. This strategy is characterized by the variety of options, and identification of the most ...

  • Effects of the anaerobic biowaste treatment processes Management on the digestate quality (residues from Digestion/compost, process water/wastewater)

    Regarding the municipally-collected biowaste amount in Germany, a quantity of 90 - 100 kg/ per annum per citizen is registered (Gallenkemper and Doedens, 1994). That results in an annual biowaste amount of 6.3 to 7 million tons in the Federal Republic of Germany (FRG), whereby also sewage sludges and biogenic, industrial wastes are added. According to Hochrein (1994) about 3 million tons of ...

  • Interoperability: the key for smart water management

    The integration of water processes with information and communication technologies systems offers huge opportunities in terms of efficiency gains, improved security, and overall sustainability. However, as this new field of water management – often denoted as ‘Smart Water Network’ (SWN) – is evolving, there are many different vendors, technologies and business models ...

    Sustainability body IEMA and other members of the Broadway Initiative have launched a new blueprint for the UK government’s upcoming Environment Act. Published yesterday, the blueprint provides a long-term framework for enhancing the environment while also meeting key social and ...

  • Easy To Integrate: Dezentralised Treatment Of Process Water

    Technical processing systems are some of the most complex industrial plants in existence. In the petrochemical industry, lor example, a great number of chemical products can be manufactured from crude oil and natural gas as a result of chemical-physical processes using such systems. They are designed by special companies, such as the Engineering Division of Linde AG, which having installed over ...

  • Compost in the mix for storm water management

    Bioretention areas, also known as rain gardens, are increasingly being used to capture and treat storm water runoff from impervious surfaces such as roofs, sidewalks and parking lots. These landscaped areas often feature native plants installed in an engineered soil mixture that includes compost. “Bioretention areas or rain gardens are an attractive storm water Best Management Practice (BMP) ...

  • Tree-based fitted Q-iteration for multi-objective Markov decision processes in water resource management

    Multi-objective Markov decision processes (MOMDPs) provide an effective modeling framework for decision-making problems involving water systems. The traditional approach is to define many single-objective problems (resulting from different combinations of the objectives), each solvable by standard optimization. This paper presents an approach based on reinforcement learning (RL) that can learn ...
