  • Fire Protection Water Storage Tanks

    Water availability and supply is an important subject to the fire service. Potable water for human consumption is delivered to domestic, commercial and industrial properties from (in the majority of cases in the UK) municipal water systems (mains water supplies). This system also supplies to fire hydrants or fire protection systems, but to guarantee water availability there also needs to be the ...

  • Water Storage Dam Planned for Columbia River Basin

    YAKIMA, Washington (ENS) - The best location for a new water storage dam and reservoir in the Columbia River basin is Lower Crab Creek in Grant County, a newly completed assessment by federal and state agencies has concluded. The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and the Washington state Department of Ecology are seeking a location where water can be stored to augment irrigation ...

  • Water storage requires evidence-based approach

    Coping with climate change requires a greater understanding of the options for water storage, writes hydrology expert Matthew McCartney. The lack of water is a major cause of food insecurity and poverty among the world's poorest people. But for many, the problem is not water scarcity per se, but the inability to manage rainfall variability. In Sub-Saharan Africa, for example, ...

  • DOE selects projects to monitor and evaluate geologic CO2 storage

    The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has announced the selection of 19 projects to enhance the capability to simulate, track, and evaluate the potential risks of carbon dioxide (CO2) storage in geologic formations. The projects' total value is approximately $35.8 million over four years, with $27.6 million of DOE funding and $8.2 million of non-Federal cost sharing. The work will be managed by ...

  • Alabama injection project aimed at enhanced oil recovery, testing important geologic CO2 storage

    Carbon dioxide (CO2) injection — an important part of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology — is underway as part of a pilot study of CO2 enhanced oil recovery (EOR) in the Citronelle Field of Mobile County, Alabama. A project team led by the University of Alabama at Birmingham is conducting the injection. Study results of the 7,500-ton CO2 injection will provide estimates of oil yields ...

  • EPA finalizes rules to foster safe carbon storage technology actions part of efforts to reduce barriers to widespread deployment of carbon capture and sequestration, an important set of technologies to combat climate change

    Today, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finalized two rules related to the capture and sequestration of carbon dioxide. Carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) technologies have the potential to enable large emitters of carbon dioxide, such as coal fired power plants, to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This technology allows carbon dioxide to be captured at stationary ...

  • Water tank refurbishment to avoid costly replacement

    Water is an invaluable commodity. Many people understand this and so they have implemented the use of water storage tanks. These tanks are a great asset to the agricultural industry, fire protection and the farming community but need to be properly maintained in order for the tank to be fully functional. One such method of doing so is to install a tank liner or to undergo ...

  • Unsustainable water consumption contributes to sea level rise

    The global sea level is rising, yet only part of that rise can be attributed to the effects of climate change. New research has calculated that human impacts on terrestrial water storage make up around 42% of total sea level rise, in particular, the extraction of groundwater that eventually makes its way to the ocean. Tidal measurements have revealed that the global sea level rose by 1.8mm per ...

  • We need a new metric for water scarcity in Africa

    The current metric for assessing water scarcity in Africa should be abandoned in favour of one tailored to local realities, argues Richard Taylor. Ensuring that people have access to safe and affordable water supplies will be a major challenge for many developing countries as populations grow and agriculture and industry expand over the coming decades. One of the greatest threats ...
