  • City of Wellman, Texas - Arsenic Treatment System

    The City of Wellman, Texas (Wellman) applied to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) to participate in the arsenic treatment demonstration program for Round 2 and was selected. Wellman has five water-supply wells which pump water to a 110,000 gallon storage tank. Water-quality analyses revealed that arsenic concentrations exceeded the new maximum contaminant level (MCL). AdEdge ...

  • Assessment of relative impact of reservoir location

    Reallocation of reservoir storage capacity for different water use purposes is regarded as one of the representative strategies for supplying water for human and environmental needs under the difficult situation of new reservoir construction. However, there are impacts of reservoir storage reallocation on river/reservoir systems because each reservoir in a multiple reservoir system is operated ...

  • The Byzantine cisterns of Constantinople

    The most unusual aspect of Byzantine Constantinople's water system was the large number of cisterns throughout the city. This research integrates the two most recent in-depth studies of the cisterns to determine that there have been at least 211 cisterns attributed to the Byzantine city. The distribution of the cisterns indicates that the size and number of cisterns constructed reduced over ...
