  • Modelling and optimized water management of artificial inland waterway systems

    A decision support system (DSS) for optimized operational water management of artificial inland waterways is presented. It will be deployed as part of a supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system of the Mittellandkanal (MLK), a large canal structure in northern Germany, and relies on experience gained from a similar system. The DSS uses a model predictive controller with a 48 h ...

  • Landlok 300 used to repair canals ravaged by devastating hurricanes

    BACKGROUND The South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) is the world’s largest water control system, protecting more than 6,000,000 people that live in the agency’s 16 counties from severe flooding associated with tropical storms and hurricanes common to South Florida. They also are charged with the freshwater supply and managing water quality. DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION The storms of ...

  • Piedroba Dewaters Slurry, Returns Clean Water to Holmes Beach Canals

    This project was a successful application of a total cleaning system (TCS), where the particular type of solids of the sediments permitted the dredger to avoid the costly construction of a dredged material maintenance area (DMMA), or the transportation and tipping fees for a municipal landfill. The surface waters were cleaned in tandem, and contributed to a higher quality benthic environment in ...

  • A multi–modal supply chain network design for recycling waterway sediments

    The French waterway system consists of large navigable rivers and canals connecting many regions. Maintaining a safe navigation channel, in the Nord–Pas De Calais (NPDC) region in France, requires the regular removal of accumulated sediments which are often contaminated with zinc, lead, cadmium, and mercury. New legislations, such as the European Water Framework Directive (DCA, 2000), ...

  • Decentralized Wasterwater Treatment EcoTanks for the Riverside Communities od Barangay San Francisco: A CITYNET - funded Pilot and Demonstration

    In many dense, low income areas of Southeast Asia and elsewhere, effective sanitation solutions are difficult to come by. These areas are often largely unserviced by sewerage systems and the residents may not have had the income available during their home’s construction to install a proper septic tank. Even if they did, unless a subsidized tank desludging program exists ...

  • 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 ...

  • Online flow measurement

    Background The undershoot weir in Hohensaaten was built in 1913. It has three openings and regulates the discharge from the Oderbruch and from the Finow canal into the Hohensaaten-Friedrichsthaler-waterway. Moreover, it protects parts of the Oderbruch against Oder floods. The weir controls the waterlevels in the Havel-Oder-waterway and in the reach of Niederfinow- Hohensaaten. ...

  • The best way to restore environments in the face of climate change

    Florida’s Kissimmee River once flowed freely. Fish, birds and other wildlife dwelled in the wetlands it fed. But in the 1960s, spurred by public outrage over flooding, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers straightened the winding waterway and turned it into a drainage canal. Flip forward a few decades and the river is returning — at least in part. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has ...

  • Hydraulic Dredging: A cost effective solution for most dredging tasks

    The vast majority of dredging jobs require removal of solids to depths of 30 feet or less. Several features enable hydraulic dredges to be the solution of choice for these applications. First, what are hydraulic dredges and how do they compare with alternative mechanical dredge types? Hydraulic dredges create slurries, combinations of solids and water, pump the slurries to the ...
