  • Water monitoring as a safety feature for nuclear desalination

    It is widely accepted that the general safety approach for nuclear facilities is valid for a Nuclear Desalination Plant (NDP), thus IAEA standards and guides are applicable. The coupling of a NDP should be designed with the safety objective of ensuring that it results in no adverse effect on the Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) safety. The first objective (provisions of barriers) is complied with by the ...

  • Abandoning Monitoring Wells: Safety Issues

    Monitoring wells are typically constructed to gauge the extent of contamination, assess water quality and conduct other hydrogeologic studies. Depending on its objective, the monitoring well may remain in use or may be abandoned permanently. When declared inactive, the well is many a times left as it is. Open unused wells are hazardous to life and environment: • Contamination may spread from one ...

  • Safety in Drinking Water? Monitoring for Radioactive ContaminantsOnly Required Every Three, Six, or Nine Years per Federal Law

    Current federal law requires testing of drinking water for radionuclides, “hazardous radioactive materials” every three, six, or nine years. The states have the option to increase testing frequency. [Federal Register Year 2000; page 76746. http://www.gpoaccess.gov/fr/retrieve.html] An incident of terrorism, accident, or improper disposal ...

  • Success or failure: demonstrating the effectiveness of a Water Safety Plan

    The Water Safety Plan (WSP) concept has become a globally recognised and accepted approach to drinking water supply management and operation. Many countries around the world are adopting this proactive, risk-based model for ensuring consistent confidence in drinking water safety, accessibility and affordability. While it is widely accepted that the WSP concept is an appropriate tool for ensuring ...

  • A strategic approach for Water Safety Plans implementation in Portugal

    Effective risk assessment and risk management approaches in public drinking water systems can benefit from a systematic process for hazards identification and effective management control based on the Water Safety Plan (WSP) concept. Good results from WSP development and implementation in a small number of Portuguese water utilities have shown that a more ambitious nationwide strategic approach ...

  • Extending the water safety plan concept to the urban water cycle

    The urban water cycle (UWC) is often managed by several stakeholders dealing with specific components of the cycle such as water supply, wastewater systems and water bodies management. Therefore, risk management in the UWC benefits from an integrated approach to incorporate the interdependencies between elements. The water cycle safety plan (WCSP) provides a common risk management framework for ...

  • Microbial indicators, pathogens and methods for their monitoring in water environment

    Water is critical for life, but many people do not have access to clean and safe drinking water and die because of waterborne diseases. The analysis of drinking water for the presence of indicator microorganisms is key to determining microbiological quality and public health safety. However, drinking water-related illness outbreaks are still occurring worldwide. Moreover, different indicator ...

  • Gas Safety in Confined Spaces

    Introduction An offshore worker ensures a vessel is safe to enter; a plant manager enters a small plant room; a contractor inspects the lining of a sewage pipe.  All these personnel face common dangers, despite working in widely different industries.  Gas-related injury poses a serious threat in any confined space where the free movement of air is limited. A confined space ...

  • Dam safety inspections

    This dam safety inspection was carried out to monitor the safety of a stone masonry overflow dam (12m high and 161m long). The geological makeup of the region comprises Ordovician period limestone and loose Quaternary sediments. One set of data was collected by placing 64 ...

    An engineer repairs buried cables; a plant manager enters a small plant room; a contractor inspects the lining of a sewage pipe.  All these personnel face a common danger, despite working in widely different industries.  Gas-related injury poses a serious threat in any confined space where the free movement of air is limited.  ...

  • Weather claims and wind safety

    Anybody working in the construction industry either here in the UK or anywhere else in the world is likely to know that the weather can present us with particular hazards. While rain, ice and snow are particularly dangerous to work in, we must always be aware that the wind is also likely to make conditions unsafe, particularly for those who work at height and those who ...

  • Compressed Gas Safety Guide

    Use and storage of any compressed gas under high pressure can be extremely dangerous if proper gas handling procedures are not observed. Moreover, chemical characteristics of specialty gases themselves can pose serious health hazards if containment is not tightly controlled. Paying close attention to a compressed gas product’s technical and safety information is invaluable for maintaining a safe, ...

  • Practical applications of quantitative microbial risk assessment (QMRA) for water safety plans

    The absence of indicator organisms in drinking water does not provide sufficient guarantee for microbial safety. Therefore the water utilities are implementing water safety plans (WSP) to safeguard drinking water quality. Quantitative microbial risk assessment (QMRA) can be used to provide objective quantitative input for the WSP. This study presents several applications of treatment modelling in ...
