  • Guide to Removing Arsenic from Drinking Water

    It’s said that the human body is made up of almost 60 percent water. Is the water you’re putting into your body pure? Many people are unaware of the chemicals and compounds that are seeping into their drinking water and wreaking havoc on their internal systems. Arsenic, for example, can be found in many different areas. In the Northeast especially, well water is more likely to be ...

  • Control of urine odor in different sanitation practices and its implication on water saving

    To avoid odor in sanitation systems, urine is usually diluted with water (flushed), which leads to high water consumption. The smell may remain in sanitation systems if the systems are not well managed, or if the urine is flushed with insufficient amounts of water. In this study, using the standard threshold odor number (TON) measurement as an indicator of urine odor, the effects of the pH and ...

  • Method for an accelerated reproducible calcite-layering of potable water systems to validate decalcification procedures

    This article describes a method for an accelerated, controlled and reproducible build-up of limescale in potable water systems. The concept of this method is to systematically generate water with a high calcium carbonate precipitation potential (CCPP) by CO2-enrichment, hardening with CaCO3 followed by CO2-desorption. Water with a CCPP of about 100 mg/L CaCO3 led to ...

  • Multi-objective design of water distribution systems based on the fuzzy reliability index

    This paper reports the application of a multi-objective evolutionary algorithm to the design of water distribution systems. The objective functions are the minimization of the capital costs and the maximization of the hydraulic reliability of the network so as to identify the tradeoff between cost and reliability. Furthermore, a new deterministic reliability index named fuzzy reliability index ...

  • Iron oxide impregnated sugarcane bagasse waste material as sorbent for As(III) removal from water: kinetic, equilibrium and thermodynamic studies

    Adsorption of arsenite (As(III)) from aqueous solutions onto iron oxide impregnated sugarcane bagasse was investigated in this study. The linear regression analysis showed that Langmuir adsorption isotherm fitted well to the experimental data. Langmuir constants ‘a’ related to the adsorption capacity and ‘b’ related to the binding energy of sorption system were found to be 1.55 mg/g and 46.44 ...
