  • Reducing Wasted Food In Tennessee

    About 15 percent of Tennessee households are food insecure, and almost 1.2 million tons of food are landfilled annually. The state is moving quickly to address both realities. It is increasingly apparent that food waste and food insecurity in the United States is a problem, and it has especially hit home in Tennessee. An estimated 15.1 percent of Tennessee households are food insecure, which ...

  • Water Resource Information System

    Bristol Water (BW) approached HL to replace an obsolete water database used to help update water resource situations reports. HL was successful with its tender which included building a new water resource information system around the HydroLog4 time-series database combined with the Open Database Toolkit. The Water Resource Planning Manager, Martin Berry wanted to replace an in-house developed ...

  • Water resources and management in Tunisia

    This paper focuses on the work done through the INRGREF to collect and analyse available information on water resources in Tunisia. It presents the quantity and quality of surface and groundwater resources data. Water resources in Tunisia are characterised by scarcity and a pronounced irregularity. Tunisia has been able to develop a complex and diverse water infrastructure allowing the country to ...

  • Data management for integrated water resources management in Central Asia

    Information technologies can act as technical artifacts and can facilitate stakeholder communication, supporting decision making in a complex societal context. The water sector is one such example where limited water resources are threatened by climate change and growing competition for resources between sectors, regions and countries. Attempts to improve water governance and management through ...

  • Drinking Water Resource Protection, Germany

    Reference Project: Drinking Water Resource Protection, Germany In the catchment area of a major drinking water supplier in western Germany increasing nitrate concentrations were noticed within a deep water-bearing layer. Although high nitrate concentrations, resulting from regional intensive application of fertilizers, were known from shallow layers in the area, they were new to the deep ...

  • Monitoring Water Resources Beyond Irrigation

    Over the past year, California’s governor has taken unprecedented action, requiring Californians to drastically cut potable urban water use. While the restrictions may seem harsh to some, it actually provides an opportunity for building managers and community association boards to implement an effective long-term water conservation program. And the result can be significant dollar savings. ...

  • Get more out of Water Resources Engineering Models

    The effort required to develop water resources engineering models can be significant. But once developed, in many instances the models are only evaluated for a limited, or a single set of conditions. The results and predictions obtained from these evaluations are the ones used in design, presented in reports and conveyed to decision makers and the public. This approach might serve ...

  • Case study - Monitoring underground water resources in Brazil

    Monitoring underground water resources in Brazil The Coca-Cola FENSA plant in Mogi das Cruzes is responsible for bottling mineral water supplied from two ground water sources. The plant is a benchmark for environmental sustainability projects. With this pioneer project the Mogi das Cruzes plant was the first of the Coca-Cola FENSA Group to install an online analysis monitoring, using ...

  • Attributiveness of a mass flow analysis model for integrated water resources assessment under data-scarce conditions

    Nutrients in river systems originate from multiple emission sources, follow various pathways, and are subject to processes of conversion and fate. One approach to tackle this complexity is to apply balance-oriented models. Although these models operate on a coarse temporal and spatial scale, they are capable of assessing the significance of the different emission sources and their results can be ...

  • The application of a drought reconstruction in water resource management

    This study uses extended (1880s–2012) rainfall series to examine the implications of historical droughts on water supply yield calculations used in water resource management and drought planning across the English Midlands and Central Wales. UK guidance to water companies is to use climate data from the 1920s to present where possible in modelling to inform water resource management and ...

  • Groundwater resources of a multi-layered aquiferous system in arid area: Data analysis and water budgeting

    The Maknassy basin in central Tunisia receives insignificant precipitation (207 mm/y), but the hydrological system retain very small quantities of water due to the steep topography and surface water resource partially mobilised witch is evacuated toward the basin outlet. However, the Maknassy plain support agriculture based on ground water ...

  • System dynamics simulation of soil water resources with data support from the Yucheng Comprehensive Experimental Station, North China

    System dynamics (SD) is one of the most suitable methods available to simulate and quantify the behaviour of complex systems due to it non-linear, multivariable, information feedback and temporally changing characteristics. This paper has improved on Khan et al.'s established model (see Khan et al. (2009) ‘Analyzing complex behavior of hydrological systems ...

  • How human diet impacts on waters and resources

    Human diet is responsible for a number of environmental problems. It is a driving force for water and land requirements for food production. This contribution investigates the relationships between diet and agricultural production, the resulting mass flows of nitrogen and phosphorus, their impact on the aquatic environment, the agricultural area requirements and emissions of nitrogen to the ...

  • Integrating water resources management in eco-hydrological modelling

    In this paper the integration of water resources management with regard to reservoir management in an eco-hydrological model is described. The model was designed to simulate different reservoir management options, such as optimized hydropower production, irrigation intake from the reservoir or optimized provisioning downstream. The integrated model can be used to investigate the impacts of ...

  • Cost–benefit and water resources policy: a survey

    This paper reviews recent developments in cost–benefit analysis for water policy researchers who wish to understand the applications of economic principles to inform emerging water policy debates. The cost–benefit framework can provide a comparison of total economic gains and losses resulting from a proposed water policy. Cost–benefit analysis can provide decision-makers with a comparison of the ...
