  • 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 ...

  • Protective coatings for Underground utility concrete structures

    As our cities and municipalities grow older, the utility and wastewater infrastructure and corrosion preventive program for underground asset protection are aging with them. Municipalities and Utility Companies are struggling to handle rehabilitation measures and effective corrosion prevention programs to deal with prolonging the life of their buried assets. More municipalities are in the process ...

  • An object-oriented development environment to optimally design cyclic storage systems

    Cyclic storage system (CSS) is defined as physically interconnected and operationally integrated surface water and groundwater subsystems with full direct interactions between the subsystems. Mathematical development and implementation of a CSS model is very complex and all previous works are fully case dependent with a minimum possibility of generalization. This article proposes an integrated ...

  • An investigation into the relationship between water quality volume (design storage volume) and stormwater wetland performance

    An investigation on free water surface wetland, which has an area of 0.23 ha and is employed to control the non-point source pollution from a watershed of 7.4 ha, was carried out to examine how the WQvr (the ratio of stormwater inflow volume to water quality volume (WQv)) affects the wetland treatment performance. As stormwater went through the wetland, TSS (total ...

  • Residential system design

    Rainwater systems can be as simple as placing a rain barrel beneath a downspout or they can be complex – engineered multi-tank systems with pumping stations and automated computer controls for supplying commercial and industrial process applications. Consider that in one installation in the Sumo arena in Japan, rainwater is supplied for flushing toilets and the cistern’s excess ...

  • Rainstore3 Inlet Design

    When designing the inlets to a Rainstore3 subsurface water storage system, there are a few items to consider beyond the calculations of water volume, velocity and pipe size. These items include: 1) Whether pipe should be used at all; 2) Centralized storage or De-centralized storage chambers to allow for various water quality issues; 3) Method of water filtration/treatment; 4) Location of inlet ...

  • Designing With Geosynthetic Clay Liners

    In construction, preventing the penetration of liquids and gases is essential to maintaining the integrity of a structure. Often, containment is just as important, especially when dealing with chemical contaminants or other waste. When looking to stop the spread of contaminated liquids and gases, there are few tools as effective as geosynthetic clay liners (GCL). Read on to learn how to design ...

  • Our Conical Cone Tanks Are Now WRAS Approved For Drinking Water Storage

    When it comes to quality, Enduramaxx is there. And our cone tanks (conical tanks) are no exception. We are proud to announce that they have just been granted WRAS certification. The Water Regulation Authority Scheme approval means that these tanks are approved for the storage of emergency water for human consumption. This means our cone bottom tanks can be used for applications for storage of ...

  • How Seismic Use Group Classification affects your Water Storage Tank

    When purchasing a bolted steel tank or a welded steel water storage tank, one of the key criteria determining the design parameters of the tank is the Seismic Use Group (SUG) classification. The term Seismic Use Group is essentially the same as the terms Occupancy Category and Risk Category used by the International Building Code (IBC) and the ...

  • Climate adaptive urban planning and design with water in Dutch polders

    The existing water management in Dutch polders is based on independent water systems for each polder. These are featuring artificial stabilized ground and surface water levels. As a result of the local climate the water levels in the polders are not continuously at a constant level. To maintain a stable water table in the polders, the surplus of relatively clean rainwater has to be pumped away ...

  • Deterioration in water quality from supply chain to household and appropriate storage in the context of intermittent water supplies

    Many water providers in urban developing country contexts have to supply the water intermittently due to the disparity between rapidly growing demand and investment in supply infrastructure. This can lead to water quality risks such as ingress of polluted groundwater and unsafe household storage. This study has investigated the common risks and possible alternative solutions down the supply chain ...

  • A perfect pair: SBR designs & advanced aeration technology

    Conventional sequencing batch reactors (SBRs) that utilize diffused-air networks have existed in the U.S. for about three decades now. The reliability of controls and instrumentation has significantly improved in the last 10 to 15 years, and as a result, SBR plant designs are becoming more widely accepted. The attractiveness of their compact layout and ease of operation has also helped increase ...
