    M65 On-Site Generation of Hypochlorite

    As more water systems turn to safer alternatives to chlorine gas, the generation of hypochlorite on site has become increasingly common. M65, On-Site Generation of Hypochlorite, presents the principles of on-site generation (OSG), the differences between low-strength and high-strength OSG systems, and the subsequent impact each of these systems ...

  • Water Engineering and Management: Learning from History

    Water Engineering and Management - Learning from History explores the pair technology / water use (an indivisible pair, since the first member of the binomial determines the second) which, in the light of the knowledge available in the 21st century and with a conception focused on the near future, goes beyond the limits set by nature itself. The ...

  • Water Resources Engineering in Karst

    Karstified geologic formations (carbonates and evaporites) cover more than 15% of the Earth´s land surface ; in fact, 25% of the world´s population either lives on top of karst formations or obtains its water from them. These areas contain unusual landscape features such as caves, sinkholes, springs, aquifers, and disappearing streams that are ...

  • Water and Urban Development Paradigms: Towards an Integration of Engineering, Design and Management Approaches

    Communication across and integration of disciplines in the urban-water sector seems today more imperative than ever before. Water is a strategic and shrinking resource. It is probably the world's most valuable resource and clean water has even been touted as the 'next oil'. Control of water - from access to management -  has always been a ...

  • Smart Water Utilities: Complexity Made Simple

    Today, there is increasing pressure on the water infrastructure and although unsustainable water extraction and wastewater handling can continue for a while, at some point water needs to be managed in a way that is sustainable in the long-term. We need to handle water utilities 'smarter'. New and effective tools and technologies are becoming ...
