  • Understanding the True Cost of Water

    Overcoming Barriers to Corporate Water Stewardship For companies pursuing corporate water stewardship strategies, a common barrier to action is the perceived low cost of water “at the tap.” Water reduction, reuse, and recycling projects often do not meet investment hurdle rates or compare positively to other investments. This also acts to limit community and watershed ...

  • Reduction in water losses in water distribution systems using pressure reduction valves

    Water loss is a phenomenon frequently observed within water distribution systems (WDSs), that is considerably worsened by an excessive pressure throughout the network. As an alternative option to pipe replacement, the use of pumps working as turbines, throttle control valves (TCVs), or pressure reduction valves (PRVs) can be used to reduce leakage. For a preassigned number of these devices, ...

  • A multifaceted approach to clear water reduction

    The Heart of the Valley Metropolitan Sewerage District provides wastewater conveyance and treatment services to five communities. The District is faced with meeting the challenges of growth coupled with aging infrastructure. In particular, the wastewater conveyance and treatment systems suffer from extreme wet weather-related peak flow events due to excessive clear water that enters the older ...

  • Linking environmental management systems with cost reduction in enterprises: an analysis of managerial responses

    The goal of this research is to find if and what types of costs have been reduced as a result of implementing environmental management systems and of what significance it was to the firms involved. The research suggests that one-third of the enterprises polled have managed to reduce costs. In most cases the reductions pertained to the costs of waste management as well as energy and water ...

  • A vision for the practice of risk reduction

    Disaster risk is rising rapidly. The poorest and most vulnerable people are hit hardest. Many hazards are becoming more frequent and less predictable as a result of climate change. At the same time, environmental degradation erodes nature’s ability to regulate them, and to provide food and water. The result is that more people are caught in a vicious circle of poverty, risk and ...

  • Strategic Planning for Water Loss Reduction with Imprecise Data

    Water utilities particularly in the developing countries continue to operate with considerable inefficiencies in terms of water and revenue losses. With increasing water demand and scarcity, utilities require effective strategies for optimum use of available water resources. Often the information needed for strategic planning is inadequate and decisions have to be made on the basis of limited and ...

  • Peatlands: hotspots for emissions reductions

    Peatlands play a critical role in climate regulation, storing twice as much carbon as the entire world’s forest biomass and emitting large amounts of carbon when drained. Peat carbon stocks are distributed worldwide. The mitigation potential is very significant, but possible future possible emissions as well if no rapid action is taken to protect and restore them. The UNFCCC provides ...

  • Footprints and Capital Costs Reduction for Onsite Wastewater Treatment Systems - a Novel Dual Media Recirculating Biofilters

     ABSTRACT The purpose of this study was to develop a dual media filter bed design for recirculating biofilters (RBFs) for achieving high level treatment to meet the strict wastewater discharge regulations. Five types of filter media were applied in the bench scale RBFs, including two single media (crushed glass or CG, geotextile or GT), and three dual media with CG and GT at different ...

  • Enhanced Reductive Dechlorination (ERD) and In Situ Chemical Reduction (ISCR) using EHC®

    CH2M HillUnited States Marine Corps Site, North Carolina Summary Site groundwater was impacted with chlorinated volatile organic compounds (CVOCs) at concentrations as high as 80,000 ppb. A total of 24,100 lbs of EHC was injected into areas of elevated CVOC concentration to yield enhanced in situ chemical reduction (ISCR). Six months after the EHC injection, TCA levels had decreased ...


  • Stormwater Solids Reduction for NPDES Permits

    Finally obtaining a National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Permit is often a relief but is by far not the end of the story. Meeting the requirements of that permit often proves to be quite difficult and stiff fines are freely doled out to those who fail to meet regulatory limits. For one Midwest jet propulsion manufacturing facility, the issue of total daily solids discharge ...
