  • Source Separation and Decentralization for Wastewater 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 and Decentralization for Wastewater Management sets up a comprehensive view of the resources ...

  • Treatise on Water Science

    Treatise on Water Science

    Treatise on Water Science, Four-Volume Set Available online and in print for a limited time Water quality and management are of great significance globally, as the demand for clean, potable water far exceeds the availability. Water science research brings together the natural and applied sciences, engineering, chemistry, law and policy, and economics. The Treatise on Water Science seeks to unite these areas through contributions from a global ...

    Special Offer: KWR Drinking Water Treatment Set - Buy all five books together and save a total £119! Ever since the recognition of the important role of water in the transmission of pathogenic micro-organisms in the 19th century, microbiological safety of drinking water has been a major research issue for microbiologists in the drinking water industry. The main objective of this book is to develop a general strategy to assess elimination ...

  • Stochastic Modelling of Drinking Water Treatment in Quantitative Microbial Risk Assessment

    Stochastic Modelling of Drinking Water Treatment in Quantitative Microbial Risk Assessment

    Special Offer: KWR Drinking Water Treatment Set - Buy all five books together and save a total £119! Safe drinking water is a basic need for all human beings. Preventing microbial contamination of drinking water is of primary concern since endemic illness and outbreaks of infectious diseases can have significant social and economic consequences. Confirming absence of indicators of faecal contamination by water analysis only provides a limited ...

  • Experimental Methods in Wastewater Treatment

    Experimental Methods in Wastewater Treatment

    Over the past twenty years, the knowledge and understanding of wastewater treatment has advanced extensively and moved away from empirically based approaches to a fundamentally-based first principles approach embracing chemistry, microbiology, and physical and bioprocess engineering, often involving experimental laboratory work and techniques. Many of these experimental methods and techniques have matured to the degree that they have been ...

  • Best Practice Guide on Managing Metals and Related Substances in Small Water Supplies

    Best Practice Guide on Managing Metals and Related Substances in Small Water Supplies

    The management of small water supplies presents a unique challenge globally, in countries at all stages of development. A combination of lack of resources, limited understanding of the risks and poor expertise means that individuals and communities may face serious health risks from these supplies. This is not only due to microbiological contamination, but also from contamination by metals, either due to natural or man-made contamination of the ...

  • Evaluation and validation of rapid molecular methods for the detection and identification of microorganisms in water - Standard Operating Procedures

    Evaluation and validation of rapid molecular methods for the detection and identification of microorganisms in water - Standard Operating Procedures

    Molecular techniques are emerging as a rapid and powerful approach for microorganism detection. This project reviewed the efficacy of PCR assays for Cryptosporidium, Microcystis, adenovirus and ammonia oxidising bacteria, as well as candidate techniques for DNA extraction and inhibitor removal. The literature review led to an evaluation of DNA extraction kits and reagents for PCR; finalisation of assay formats; the development of PCR controls ...

  • Immobilised Biocatalysts for Bioremediation of Groundwater and Wastewater

    Immobilised Biocatalysts for Bioremediation of Groundwater and Wastewater

    The European project MINOTAURUS explored innovative bio-processes to eliminate emerging and classic organic pollutants. These bio-processes are all based on the concept of immobilization of biocatalysts (microorganisms and enzymes) and encompass bioaugmentation, enzyme technology, rhizoremediation with halophytes, and a bioelectrochemical remediation process. The immobilization-based technologies are applied as engineered ex situ treatment ...

  • Cryptosporidium Literature Review

    Cryptosporidium Literature Review

    This report provides a review of the literature on Cryptosporidium and helps to identify the findings and formulates the key research questions.  It covers these central questions: • What are the sources/carriers of human pathogenic strains and what are the key species for a range of catchments? • What is the contribution of pre and post weaned cattle and sheep to catchment contamination? • What data on animal management practices (including ...

  • Microbial Growth in Drinking Water Supplies

    Microbial Growth in Drinking Water Supplies

    Maintaining the microbial quality in distribution systems and connected installations remains a challenge for the water supply companies all over the world, despite many years of research. This book identifies the main concerns and knowledge gaps related to regrowth and stimulates cooperation in future research. Microbial Growth in Drinking Water Supplies provides an overview of the regrowth issue in different countries and the water quality ...

  • Development of a Microbial Fuel Cell for Sustainable Wastewater Treatment

    Development of a Microbial Fuel Cell for Sustainable Wastewater Treatment

    Wastewater treatment is an energy intensive process that removes contaminants and protects the environment. While some wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) recover a small portion of their energy demand through sludge handling processes, most of the useful energy available from wastewater remains unrecovered. Efforts are underway to harness energy from wastewater by developing microbial fuel cells (MiFCs) that generate electricity. Key challenges ...

  • Elimination of Micro-organisms by Water Treatment Processes

    Elimination of Micro-organisms by Water Treatment Processes

    Special Offer: KWR Drinking Water Treatment Set - Buy all five books together and save a total £119! The overall aim of Elimination of Micro-organisms by Water Treatment Processes is to present default values for the micro-organisms elimination or inactivation credit of universally used processes in water treatment (MEC or MIC). The growing interest in Quantitative Microbial Risk assessment (QMRA) for safe drinking water requires such data. ...

  • Characterizing the Quality of Effluent and Other Contributory Sources During Peak Wet Weather Events

    Characterizing the Quality of Effluent and Other Contributory Sources During Peak Wet Weather Events

    This study evaluates the impacts of blending practices at municipal wastewater treatment plants on effluent and receiving water quality, and estimates public health risks associated with recreation in surface waters receiving blended flows. Field samples were collected at four municipal wastewater treatment plants for in-plant processes and receiving waters during wet weather blending, wet weather non-blending, and dry weather events. Laboratory ...
