  • 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 ...

  • Smart utilities and sustainable resource management

    With the increased availability of inexpensive micro-sensor technologies, everything is becoming “sensor-tagged”. Energy and water utilities are benefiting from this “sensorization” of our infrastructure and the associated smart technology advancements. These progressive utilities are employing innovative, real-time monitoring and control applications with high volume and ...

  • Hydrometric Network Data Management

    A key part of HL's contract with Dwr Cymru Welsh Water to install, operate and maintain a large network of telemetred reservoir level and compensation flow gauges, a suite of HL's software packages was also supplied to each of the three operational areas for managing time-series data and processing stage-discharge data into a long-term flow record archive. HL's HydroLog4 and Gauger 2 packages ...

  • LIMS Key to Quality Data Management in Water Industry

    WEFTEC  has just  wrapped up its 2012 conference – the largest meeting of its kind in North America.  The Water Environment Federations’ annual meeting has again delivered comprehensive water quality education and training to thousands of water quality professionals.  The leading discussions at WEFTEC ...

  • 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 ...

  • Risk-based integrated management of transboundary water resources: a general framework

    Integrated management of transboundary surface waters and groundwater aquifers faces not only difficult problems and uncertainties at a national level, but also problems resulting from the fact that these water bodies cross international borders. After showing the importance of internationally shared waters at the global scale in terms of spatial extension, quantity and water uses, this paper ...

  • Assessment of water resources management and quality of El Salam Canal, Egypt

    The Government of Egypt implemented El Salam Canal project to reuse drainage water, to create new communities along the Canal and to re–chart Egypt's population map. The objectives of the present study are to evaluate the quantity of the drainage water which feed El–Salam Canal, and the quality of water discharge through the course of El Salam Canal. This paper assesses water quality of El Salam ...

  • Management of water resources assessment for nuclear power plants in China

    To deal with global warming and energy shortages, the nuclear power industry has flourished in China. Operation of a nuclear power plant consumes a large amount of water and discharges radioactive wastewater into nearby water bodies. Therefore, assessment and management of water resources are crucial for such projects. This article proposes the contents, procedures and methods of water ...

  • Climate change adaptation planning for water resources and wastewater management

    ABSTRACT Climate change poses multiple challenges to water resources and wastewater management. Changes in the frequency and intensity of extreme weather and even the regular precipitation patterns, as well as sea level rise, are serious issues for water resources, stormwater infrastructure, floodplain development, and wastewater management. Changing weather patterns will impact the way ...

  • Improved estimate of multiyear drought for water resources management studies

    Using short hydrological records to characterise extreme drought for water studies could lead to uncertain results. At first, this article introduces a generic model that extends the length of short hydrological records to improve the analysis of drought. Using simulated data, the extension model performance was tested and found to work well and later the model was used to extend the annual ...

  • Integrated Water Resources Management for meso-scale ungauged river basins in Russia

    In the last 5 years Russia developed Schemes of Integrated Use and Protection of Water Objects (SKIOVO) aiming at remediating and maintaining water resources quality. The main limitation of the schemes is seen in their large spatial scale, which is determined by the available environmental monitoring data. The meso-scale catchments are usually ungauged, which does not allow monitoring and ...
