  • Public Private Partnerships in the Water Sector

    Public sector funding and resources are often inadequate to meet increasing demands for investment and effective management, and a growing case history shows increasing involvement by the private sector in provision of infrastructure and services through PPP arrangements. The objective of this book is to determine, and make recommendations on, ...

  • Wastewater Hydraulics

    The second, enlarged edition of this established reference integrates many new insights into wastewater hydraulics. This work serves as a reference for researchers but also is a basis for practicing engineers. It can be used as a text book for graduate students, although it has the characteristics of a reference book. It addresses mainly the sewer ...

  • Development of Protocols and Methods for Predicting the Remaining Economic Life of Wastewater Pipe Infrastructure Assets: Phase 1 (Development of Standard Data Structure to Support Wastewater Pipe Condition and Performance Prediction)

    Accurate prediction of wastewater pipe structural and functional deterioration plays an essential role in the utility asset management process and capital investment planning.  The key to implementing an asset management strategy is a comprehensive understanding and prediction of asset condition and performance.  The primary objective of this ...

  • Guidelines for Using Activated Sludge Models

    Mathematical modelling of activated sludge systems is used widely for plant design, optimisation, training, controller design and research. The quality of simulation studies varies depending on the project objectives, finances and expertise available. Consideration has to be given to the model accuracy and the amount of time required carrying out ...

  • Chemical Oxidation Applications for Industrial Wastewaters

    This book covers the most recent scientific and technological developments (state-of-the-art) in the field of chemical oxidation processes applicable for the efficient treatment of biologically-difficult-to-degrade, toxic and/or recalcitrant effluents originating from different manufacturing processes. It is a comprehensive review of process and ...

  • Modelling, Simulation and Control of Urban Wastewater Systems

    This book encourages and demonstrates an innovative approach to the design and operation of urban wastewater systems: integrated modelling and control. Consideration of sewer system, wastewater treatment plant and receiving water body as a single system (rather than as three moderately independent units as before) opens up new types of analyses ...

  • Treatment of Micropollutants in Water and Wastewater

    Over the last few years there has been a growing concern over the increasing concentration of micropollutants originating from a great variety of sources including pharmaceutical, chemical engineering and personal care product industries in rivers, lakes, soil and groundwater. As most of the micropollutants are polar and persistent compounds, they ...

  • Strategic Asset Management and Communication: Gaining Public Support - Experience with Citizen Advisory Committees

    Public understanding leading to support for investment in aging water infrastructure is absolutely essential in order to close the “gap” between projected and current funding levels.  In response to the need identified by its utility members, the Water Environment Research Foundation has funded a research program on Strategic Asset Management ...

  • Source Separation and Decentralization for Wastewater Management

        Is sewer-based wastewater treatment really the optimal technical solution in urban water management? This paradigm is increasingly being questioned. Growing water scarcity and the insight that water will be an important limiting factor for the quality of urban life are main drivers for new approaches in wastewater management. Source Separation ...

  • Wastewater Reuse - Risk Assessment, Decision-Making and Environmental Security

    The proceedings of the NATO Advanced Research Workshop 'Wastewater Reuse - Risk Assessment, Decision-Making and Environmental Security' , held in Istanbul, Turkey, October 12-16, 2006 will provide information to the readers involved with water management, wastewater, salinity, environmental issues, economists, social workers and insurance groups. ...

  • Assessing Infiltration and Exfiltration on the Performance of Urban Sewer Systems

    Sewer systems constitute a very significant heritage in European cities. Their structural quality and functional efficiency are key parameters to guarantee the transfer of domestic and industrial wastewater to treatment plants without infiltration nor exfiltration. Infiltration of groundwater is particularly detrimental to treatment plant ...
