  • Water conservation education as a tool to empower water users to reduce water use

    There is a finite supply of global fresh water available for human consumption, which is in great demand from both humans and the environment. As technology and populations increase, so do the demands and pressure on this limited resource. Demand far too often outstrips supply, requiring authorities to impose restrictions on water use. Recent research undertaken by Rand Water, in the Rand ...

  • Lower St. Johns River total maximum daily load compliance using optimization analysis of point and non-point source loads

    St. Johns River Water Management District (SJRWMD) has been participating and assisting affected parties in addressing water quality issues in the Lower St. Johns River (LSJR) basin. The ultimate goal is to improve the water quality throughout the District. One of many water quality improvement approaches has been the establishment of Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) limits for municipalities, ...

  • Energy Optimisation by Determination of Critical Oxygen Point in WWTP Operations

    The control of dissolved oxygen levels in Waste Water Treatment plants has been the subject of considerable technological improvement over the past 2 decades. Typically the energy required for aeration purposes in aerobic activated sludge plants is in the region of 35% to 65% of the total energy costs for the facility. On a global basis energy conservation is taking on greater and greater ...

  • Study on nitrogen load reduction efficiency of agricultural conservation management in a small agricultural watershed

    Different crops can generate different non-point source (NPS) loads because of their spatial topography heterogeneity and variable fertilization application rates. The objective of this study was to assess nitrogen NPS load reduction efficiency by spatially adjusting crop plantings as an agricultural conservation management (ACM) measure in a typical small agricultural watershed in the black ...

  • A fresh approach to water practices

    Science is meeting the challenge of finding ways to reduce Australia's wasteful water practices and improve the way we use and manage this finite resource. In the regional NSW town of Goulburn, just down the road from Australia’s national capital, water supplies earlier this year fell to less than 10 per cent of capacity. In most of Australia’s major cities demand is close to or equalling supply ...

  • The Evolution of Markets for Water

    This book is described in the preface as a response to 'the standard of debate on water in Australia and the attempts by some radical green lobby organisations to distort the picture in ways that might lead to some far-reaching adverse economic consequences' (p. xiii). It is the result of a workshop sponsored by the Australian Institute of Public Affairs, a free market-oriented policy think tank, ...


  • Rethinking Big Water - Is It Time For A New Approach To Municipal Water Infrastructure?

    Las Vegas has long served as a stereotype of human excess: gambling, drinking, sex, all-you-can-eat buffets. But the latest chapter is playing out away from the Strip, in the part of the valley where two decades of booming development have swelled the population to 2 million residents who rely on a dwindling water supply. Ninety percent of the southwestern U.S. city’s drinking water comes ...

  • The role of process water in pathogen reduction

    The USDA’s Pathogen Reduction/Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) rule in July of 1996 required all meat and poultry slaughter plants to adopt a system of process controls to prevent food safety hazards. It contained four components: standard operating procedures (SOPs) for sanitation, HACCP plans, generic E. coli testing and Salmonella performance standards. With the ...

  • UV, a bright future for the water industry

    The use of Ultra Violet (UV) light has now become standard practice in most municipal waste water treatment processes.  Effluent is now starting to be recognised as a valuable resource, not a problem that needs to be dumped. Many waste water facilities are being renamed as water reclamation facilities, and whether the waste water is being discharged into a river, being used to irrigate ...

  • The New Economy of Water: The Risks and Benefits of Globalization and Privatization of Fresh Water

    Executive Overview New voices are beginning to be heard in the debate over water, and new ideas – good and bad – considered. Among the most powerful and controversial of these new ideas is that water should be considered an “economic good” – subject to the rules and power of markets, multinational corporations, and international trading regimes. In the last decade, this idea has been put ...

  • Classification of water supply systems based on energy efficiency

    The Brazilian Labeling Program is a forceful instrument for the conservation of energy. In addition to allowing consumers to evaluate the best products from an energy point of view, it sets targets to make the products increasingly more efficient. In this context, buildings that can currently obtain the energy efficiency label are also included, demonstrating to customers the concern for ...
