  • Model- vs. data-based approaches applied to fault diagnosis in potable water supply networks

    The problem of fault diagnosis in potable water supply networks is addressed in this paper. Two different fault diagnosis approaches are proposed to deal with this problem. The first one is based on a model-based approach exploiting a priori information regarding physical/temporal relations existing among the measured variables in the monitored system, providing fault detection and isolation ...

  • Modelling real-time control of WWTP influent flow under data scarcity

    In order to comply with effluent standards, wastewater operators need to avoid hydraulic overloading of the wastewater treatment plant (WWTP), as this can result in the washout of activated sludge from secondary settling tanks. Hydraulic overloading can occur in a systematic way, for instance when sewer network connections are extended without increasing the WWTP's capacity accordingly. This ...

  • A novel approach for designing large-scale river temperature monitoring networks

    Water temperature is an important control on processes in aquatic systems and particularly for freshwater fish, affecting growth, survival and demographic characteristics. In recognition of this importance, the Scottish Government has prioritised developing a robust national river temperature monitoring network. Advances in geographical information systems, spatial statistics and field data ...

  • Monitoring network for Scottish ports - Case Studies

    Historically, ferry masters operating off the west coast of Scotland would have to sail to a port and on arrival visually assess the weather and tide conditions before deciding whether safe berthing alongside the pier or quayside would be possible. This wastes time and fuel, and can causes immense frustration among passengers, who may see ferries come close to a port, but thereafter depart ...

  • Minimizing water residence time in Quebec City's main distribution network using hybrid discrete dynamically dimensioned search (HD-DDS): Part II

    This paper presents a methodology to assess and reduce water residence times in a water distribution system in order to improve water quality. The methodology was developed and validated on Quebec City's main distribution system. A tracer study was conducted to evaluate real residence times and results are presented in the ‘companion paper’ (Part I) in this issue. A ...

  • Adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system for real-time monitoring of integrated-constructed wetlands

    Monitoring large-scale treatment wetlands is costly and time-consuming, but required by regulators. Some analytical results are available only after 5 days or even longer. Thus, adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system (ANFIS) models were developed to predict the effluent concentrations of 5-day biochemical oxygen demand (BOD5) and NH4-N from a full-scale integrated constructed wetland ...

  • Crucial elements and technical implementation of intelligent monitoring networks

    Growing complexity of water monitoring instrumentation leads to specialized solutions in respect to sensor integration across several measurement device suppliers. Despite efforts of standardization for data interfaces and protocols, problems regarding the combination of several devices to gain the complete picture in terms of water quality remain. This assessment, especially accomplished from ...

  • Sediment Spill Monitoring from Dredging, using the SediMeter

    Strategies for sediment spill monitoring and siltation measurements. The SediMeter allows a gradual increase in the equipment investment as conditions merit, from a single stand-alone logger, to a real-time monitoring network in which all previously purchased equipment can be included. Sediment spill causing siltation gives rise to two separate environmental problems: A suspended sediment plume ...

In the interests of clarity and rationality, the ...

  • Behaviour of different cementitious material formulations in sewer networks

    Sewer networks are subjected to degradation, including biodeterioration of materials, in the presence of biogenic sulfuric acid, leading to costly repairs. To ensure durable structures, it is essential to select the best adapted materials. Two cementitious materials based on ordinary Portland cement (OPC) or calcium aluminate cement (CAC), were subjected to biodeterioration in the headspace of ...
