  • Influences on the establishment and dominance of vegetation in stormwater infiltration basins

    Infiltration basins are widely used in urban environments as a technique for managing and reducing the volume of stormwater. These basins can be spontaneously colonized by wild plants, which can be used as bioindicators of edaphic characteristics. As the basins are anthropogenic environments, the description of plant biodiversity allows the determination of which species colonize such ...

  • The development of a novel approach for assessment of the first flush in urban stormwater discharges

    The management of stormwater pollution has placed particular emphasis on the first flush phenomenon. However, definition and current methods of analyses of the phenomena contain serious limitations, the most important being their inability to capture a possible impact of the event size (total event volume) on the first flush. This paper presents the development of a novel approach in defining and ...

  • Inetgrated Planning for Wastewater Treatment and Recycling for a Small Community Development

    ABSTRACTIntegrated water resources planning was conducted for Olowalu Town, a proposed development in western Maui, Hawaii. Total water needs, which can be supplied by a combination of diverted surface water, well water, recycled water and captured stormwater, are estimated at between 1 and 2 mgd. The Olowalu development will generate approximately 0.5 million gallons per day (mgd) of municipal ...

  • Rich microbial communities inhabit water treatment biofilters and are differentially affected by filter type and sampling depth

    Factors affecting microbial diversity (richness) and community structure in biofilter columns were investigated. At a pilot filtration plant, granular activated carbon (GAC), anthracite and sand-based filters were used to treat stormwater from an urban catchment. After 12 weeks operation, sand media filters clogged (hydraulic conductivity declining by 90%) and all filters were destructively ...
