  • Development of a Watershed-Based Water Balance Tool for Water Supply Alternative Evaluations

    Water resource management in Skagit County, Washington is becoming increasingly complex, due to multiple interests competing for limited water supplies, and the necessary balancing of land and water development strategies. Two key drivers affecting water resource management in the County are population growth (and the associated demands upon the local water resources) and in-stream flow ...

  • Development of sustainable operational technologies of the water treatment plant for stable water supply

    For the continuous and stable supply of safe drinking water, it is essential to not only design suitable water treatment plants that can handle the characteristics of raw water quality but also appropriately operate and control them. Controlling complicated water treatment systems using fewer operators essentially requires hazard identification and the establishment of the operation and control ...

  • Policy transmission: the emerging policy dynamic of water supply infrastructure development in India

    The focus of this paper will be to investigate the nature of policy reform in the water supply infrastructure sector in India. In the formal division of powers, much of the authority to implement policies in this sector rests with state governments and the role of the national government is largely restricted to recommending broad policy directions. Since the late 1990s, with the diffusion of the ...
