  • Reconciling ‘actual’ risk with ‘perceived’ risk for distributed water quality: a QFD-based approach

    This paper explores the application of the quality function deployment (QFD) approach to identify and prioritize factors to reconcile ‘actual’ risk with ‘perceived’ risk for drinking water in a distribution network. Consumers' complaints (regarding water odour, taste, colour and other problems) and consumers' perception about water safety are used to define customers' requirements (aka ‘whats’). ...

  • Ultrasonic irradiation for ultrafiltration membrane cleaning in MBR systems: operational conditions and consequences

    Ultrasonic irradiation is one of the most promising membrane cleaning techniques for membrane bioreactors (MBRs) because of several advantages such as high flux-recovery capacity and in situ application without interrupting the filtration process. However, significant contradictions may be found and, consequently, this method has not yet been widely developed. In this paper, four MBRs ...

  • Accuracy of different sensors for the estimation of pollutant concentrations (total suspended solids, total and dissolved chemical oxygen demand) in wastewater and stormwater

    Many field investigations have used continuous sensors (turbidimeters and/or ultraviolet (UV)-visible spectrophotometers) to estimate with a short time step pollutant concentrations in sewer systems. Few, if any, publications compare the performance of various sensors for the same set of samples. Different surrogate sensors (turbidity sensors, UV-visible spectrophotometer, pH meter, conductivity ...

  • Water quality characteristics of Poyang Lake, China, in response to changes in the water level

    As one of the few remaining lakes that are freely connected with the Yangtze River, Poyang Lake exhibits large annual water level (WL) fluctuations. In this study, weekly samples were collected at the north end of Poyang Lake from September 2011 to December 2012, and we investigated the mechanism of limnological responses to fluctuations in the WL. The study covers three seasons that were ...

  • Combined SAXS/UV−vis/Raman as a diagnostic and structure resolving tool in materials and life sciences applications

    Abstract: In order to diagnose and fully correlate structural, chemical, and functional features of macromolecules and particles in solution, we propose the integration of spectroscopy and scattering on the same measuring volume and at the same time in a dedicated sample environment with multiple probes. Combined SAXS/UV−vis and SAXS/Raman information are employed to study the radiation ...

  • Comparative analysis on the effectiveness of various filtration methods on the potability of water

    This paper comparatively assessed the effectiveness of potable water filtration methods, commonly used in the hinterlands in some Ghanaian communities. Physico-chemical and microbiological analysis were carried out on pond, dam and river water samples, using spectrophotometric, pour plate count and the most probable number (MPN) methods. For the unfiltered water samples the total dissolved ...
