  • Pathogen inactivation during passage of stormwater through a constructed reedbed and aquifer transfer, storage and recovery

    A study was undertaken to determine the potential inactivation rates of selected enteric microorganisms in captured urban stormwater within a constructed reedbed and in tertiary carbonated aquifer during an Aquifer Storage, Transfer and Recovery (ASTR) scheme. The study was undertaken in-situ in the constructed reedbed and aquifer using diffusion chambers. The results showed that all tested ...

  • Meeting Melbourne's future demand for water using aquifer storage and recovery

    Melbourne is one of the fastest growing cities in Australia. City West Water (CWW) has developed an Integrated Water Cycle Management (IWCM) Strategy which includes the development of aquifer storage and recovery (ASR) schemes to store recycled water and storm water to assist with meeting future growth, where these schemes can be demonstrated to be viable and cost effective. The investigation ...

  • Simulation of storage scheme in the MHS underground reservoir recharged by water from the South-to-North Water Diversion

    The level of groundwater has fallen dramatically in the plain, and several obvious cones of depression in the groundwater surface around waterworks have expanded, because of groundwater over-drafting in Beijing. This condition has led to reductions in available groundwater resources, and has even restricted the economic development of Beijing. However, an opportunity has been provided for ...

  • Water balance: case study of a constructed wetland as part of the bio-ecological drainage system (BIOECODS)

    The Bio-ecological Drainage System, or BIOECODS, is an urban drainage system located at the Engineering Campus, Universiti Sains Malaysia. It consists of a constructed wetland as a part of the urban drainage system to carry storm water in a closed system. In this closed system, the constructed wetland was designed particularly for further treatment of storm water. For the purpose of studying the ...

  • Advanced Digestion Plant at Bran Sands design and construct experiences

    Abstract In June 2007 Northumbrian Water awarded a design and construct contract to Aker Solutions for a new advanced digestion (AD) plant at their Bran Sands site on Teesside. Following laboratory trials, advanced digestion via thermal hydrolysis was identified as the preferred treatment process for the upgrade of Bran Sands Regional Sludge Treatment Centre (RSTC). The plant will treat ...

  • Construction materials production. Application of the ABC-100 unit

    Expanded clay industry In the process of expanded clay production the argillous raw material homogenizes and mills in the drilling mud mixers and rollers. But these equipments not ensure qualitative desintegration. As result we obtain the expanded clay of low quality. Insufficiently desintegration and homogenizing of raw materials lead to the result when even 3% of carbonate ...

  • Water Reuse Terminology

    All water on Earth is used and reused, over and over, in an elegant water cycle. Water reuse occurs in various ways on a daily basis. It happens when a community’s treated wastewater is discharged into rivers or other water bodies. If you live in a community downstream of another, chances are you are reusing water from an upstream town. Scientifically proven advances in water technology ...

  • Brackish Water as a Resource

    There’s a great deal of talk and debate about the value of treating brackish water, or water that is more saline than fresh water, but not quite as saline as seawater. Brackish water can result from the mixing of seawater with fresh water, as in surface waters such as estuaries or other watery ecosystems, or it can occur underground in aquifers. Salinity Levels Although ...

  • Comparison of the treatment performance of hybrid constructed wetlands treating stormwater runoff

    This study was conducted to compare the treatment performance of two hybrid constructed wetlands (CWs) in treating stormwater runoff. The hybrid CWs were composed of a combination of free water surface (FWS) and horizontal subsurface flow (HSSF) CWs. Based on the results, strong correlation exists between potential runoff impacts and stormwater characteristics; however, the low correlations ...
