  • Stochastic modelling of the hydraulic performance of an onsite rainwater harvesting system in Mediterranean climate

    The performance of onsite rainwater harvesting (RWH) system in Mediterranean climate was assessed. A stochastic model quantifying the necessary storage, as a function of rainfall (frequency, depth), roof area, residents’ number, specific water use (toilet flushing, laundry) and the required efficiency was developed. Two performance indicators were calculated: water saving efficiency (RSE) – ...

  • Modelling rainwater harvesting for commercial buildings

    Commercial areas are generally fully paved and with more impervious land cover than residential areas. This paper demonstrates a wall-mounted rainwater harvesting system designed to deal with limited land space. An arrangement of three tanks in series was used on a commercial shop lot where flat roofs generate large amounts of runoff. The system is compact, and can be installed and fitted ...

  • Evaporation and retention structures

    On natural, unsealed areas evaporation is the main part of the water balance among surface runoff and percolation. In Germany, an average of 60 % of precipitation evaporates on unsealed areas. If the intend is a natural hydrological balance, great importance is attached to evaporation. Besides, measures for rainwater harvesting, that have a positive impact on evaporation can contribute positively ...

  • Water supply methods in Ancient Thera: the case of the sanctuary of Apollo Karneios

    The same natural water sources which enabled people to settle the island of Thera in the 8th century BC, are still visible today on the hill of Mesa Vouno. An extensive infrastructure for the exploitation of rainwaters was established in the city of Ancient Thera on Mesa Vouno, which is striking for the quality of its construction as well as the inventiveness of its builders. Rainwater followed ...

  • Comparing the microbial characteristics of rainwater in two operating rainwater tanks with different surface-to-volume ratios

    In this study, the microbial characteristics of rainwater in two tanks with different surface-to-volume ratios were investigated and compared to determine how the internal design features of storage tanks affect water quality. The particle and nutrient parameters of the rainwater, including turbidity, suspended solids, total organic carbon, and total phosphate, were lower in Tank 2, which had a ...

  • Bacteriological assessment of aquifer storage and recovery (ASR) water in southwest coastal Bangladesh

    Safe drinking water is scarce in southwest coastal Bangladesh. Harvested rainwater and rain-fed pond water are the main sources of drinking water for people living in this area. Both government and non-government organizations are promoting aquifer storage and recovery (ASR) schemes to provide safe drinking water for this population. This study assessed the bacteriological quality of both ...

  • Quality assessment of rooftop runoff and harvested rainwater from a building catchment

    A major obstacle to the promotion of rainwater harvesting is chemical and microbiological concerns. To determine its suitability as an alternative water resource, water quality parameters such as pH, turbidity and metal ion concentrations and counted total coliform, Escherichia coli and heterotrophic bacteria were measured. It was observed that the stored rainwater had a neutral average pH and ...

  • Filtering and retention structures

    Filtering and retention structures serve the purification and intermediate storage of rainwater discharge from tilled areas. The untreated rainwater from a seperate sewer system can have a major share in water body pollution. Thereby, especially the concentration of filtratable material is problematic. Additionally, rainwater floats intermittently into the water body. Measures for purification ...
