  • Allocation of water consumption in multipurpose reservoirs

    The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Special Report on Renewable Energy Sources represented a benchmark in the assessment of water consumption from electricity production. The numbers for hydropower ranged from very low to much larger than the other renewable technologies, partly explained by methodological problems. One of the methodological shortcomings identified was the lack of ...

  • Algae Controlled in a US Drinking Water Reservoir

    A floating solar powered algae control system was installed in Emmitsburg (US) to control algae in a reservoir that provides drinking water to approximately 3,000 people. The MPC-Buoy system, installed in April 2017, succeeds in controlling algae, reducing chemical costs and water usage. The Challenge: Control Algae Problems The main objective of the project was to reduce ...

  • Importance of Inspecting Reservoirs

    Inspecting Reservoirs – what is the importance of them, why they are inspected, and how ROVs help pave the way for low-cost, regular maintenance. What is a Reservoir? Deriving from the French word réservoir meaning “storehouse,” a reservoir is exactly that – a storage place for water. More often than not, these bodies of water are ...

  • Designing for algae proliferation in a new reclaimed water reservoir

    ABSTRACT Forest Lake reservoir in Pebble Beach, California is a former potable water reservoir that has been converted to a reclaimed water reservoir. The reservoir fills during the winter months and stays full throughout the spring and then is gradually depleted during the summer months. Detention times can range from 2 to 8 months. The long detention times along with other factors provide ...

  • The impacts of climate change on water diversion strategies for a water deficit reservoir

    This paper presents an assessment framework that analyses the impacts of climate change on the water diversion strategies of a water transfer project in China. A water diversion strategy consists of high and low water levels as well as related diversion flows in four operating periods: pre-flood, flood, post-flood and non-flood periods. The optimal water diversion problem is defined as a ...

  • Modeling of eutrophication and strategies for improvement of water quality in reservoirs

    The purpose of this study is to survey the thermal regime and eutrophication states in Ilam reservoir in Iran as the case study. For this purpose and to find solutions for improving the water's quality in the reservoir, two general strategies for reducing the entering pollution loads and water depletions from the reservoir's outlets were analyzed by use of the CE-QUAL-W2 model. Results of the ...

  • Hand-pumps as reservoirs for microbial contamination of well water

    The retention and release of total coliforms and Escherichia coli was investigated in hand-pumps removed from tubewells tapping a faecally contaminated aquifer in Matlab, Bangladesh, and from a new hand-pump deliberately spiked with E. coli. All hand-pumps were connected to reservoirs of sterile water and flushed. Faecal coliforms were observed in the discharge from all three of ...

  • Algae Control in Lakes and Reservoirs

    There are plenty of harmful algal bloom related cases worldwide but what is evident is that their number elevates with each year. Excessive cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) and green algae growth in a water reservoir can have negative consequences for the water quality. The water turns green, sand filters can clog, and some algae can produce geosmins and MIB, giving the water an ...

  • Algae control in raw water reservoir Ecuador - Case Study

    Before the installation of the LG Sonic e-line equipment algae grew on the surface and settle down on the liner before entering the drinking water treatment plant. To cover the 24.000 m2 of water surface, it was decided to install 3 devices.   The Challenge: Green Algae Covering the Sides of the Lagoon Located in Santa Elena’s peninsula, the 42.000 m3 raw water ...

  • Identifying the key water levels in reservoir operation on ecological objectives

    This paper investigates the influences of reservoir water level variations of the operation rule curves on different objectives, especially on ecological objectives. Five representative ecological objectives are selected besides industrial and domestic (I&D) and agricultural water supply objectives. They can reflect the impacts of reservoir operation on different attributes of ecological ...

  • Spatial variation of water quality in upper catchment of Miyun Reservoir

    Miyun Reservoir is the main surface source of drinking water for Beijing, China. Water eutrophication has compelled authorities to improve the water quality in its upstream catchment. However, a water-quality survey of the entire catchment was lacking. A total of 52 monitoring sites covering the entire catchment were sampled approximately monthly from July–September 2013, in response to ...

  • Reservoir Management - Online Oil-In-Water Monitor - Case Study

    Background Older generation online oil-in-water (OiW) monitors may suffer from fouling of optics due to scales, soaps, emulsions, sludge, etc., resulting in inaccurate (usually low) concentrations. New generation OiW monitors: Yield more accurate O  iW concentrations Improve accuracy of the OiW measurements, allowing operators to optimize water ...

  • Water harvesting reservoirs with internal water reallocation: a case study in Emilia Romagna, Italy

    The existence of formal water markets in the European context is limited to the Spanish case, despite its rationale being deeply rooted in the economic literature. In Italy, formal water markets are widely criticized and they are not supported by the national legislation. However, due to some specificity, a form of water reallocation exists in a number of rainwater harvesting reservoirs in the ...

  • Research on applying a water-lifting aerator to inhibit the growth of algae in a source-water reservoir

    A new hydraulic, water-lifting aerator was developed for ameliorating water quality. It aims at mixing lower and upper water bodies, controlling algae growth, increasing dissolved oxygen concentration in water and inhibiting the release of pollutants from sediments. This new device was applied to control the algae growth in surface water of the water source of Tianjin. It was found that the ...

  • Improvement of water-quality environment in reservoir models using flow networks

    It is known that thermal stratification and environmental problems such as water quality deterioration occur in water reservoirs. One principle cause is the stagnation of water in the reservoirs, which leads to the problems of density stratification, nutrient enrichment of algae and others. Various methods such as deep-layer mixing and forced-air injection have been utilised to counter these ...

  • Hydrochemical changes in a reservoir that receives water contaminated by acid mine drainage

    The aim was to characterize hydrochemical changes that take place in the Sancho reservoir, which receives waters contaminated by acid mine drainage (AMD) from the Meca River (Iberian Pyrite Belt, SW Spain). The sampling procedure comprised bimonthly campaigns carried out between October 2011 and May 2012, in the entrance of the reservoir and in the input river waters. In addition to in situ ...
