  • A Dutch first in the polder - Water Board Zuiderzeeland measures flow rates to achieve sustainability

    The Dutch province of Flevoland lies metres below sea-level. That’s why rain and seepage need to be removed from the polder, some 6 metres up. And that’s the reason Flevoland is drained continuously by seven huge pumping stations. The quantity of energy involved in this is as great as the energy consumption of 4,000 households. Water Board Zuiderzeeland has launched the ‘Energy ...

  • BA150E pumps at work in hectic load-in load-out projects

    Ballast pumps are used for the filling and drainage of barges. They ensure the stability of the vessel, compensating for changes in the weight during the load-in or load-out of large objects (leveling). In addition, mobile ballast pumps are also used for salvage operations. During these specialized deployments speed, security, and expertise are of crucial importance.  The ...

  • Flooding of lowland peatlands in Southeast Asia

    Vast lowland areas of Southeast Asia will be frequently and irreversibly flooded before the end of the century unless action is taken to stop the destruction of peatlands. A radical change in land-use is needed. In particular the palm oil and pulp wood sectors must stop developing new plantations on peat and plan to phase-out existing drainage-based plantations before they are flooded. If no ...

  • Numerical simulation of drainage scenarios for lowering groundwater rise due to construction of a new barrage on the Nile River

    The government of Egypt constructed a New Naga Hammadi Barrage (NNHB) 3.6 km downstream of the Old Naga Hammadi Barrage (ONHB). Upon construction, the water level raised by about 0.5 and 4 m upstream and within the river reach between ONHB and NNHB respectively. In this paper, a two–layer groundwater model was built using MicroFEM to study the groundwater rising problem. The model was used to ...

  • Once you drained it, you risk losing it all!

    Peatlands have been recognised for their high carbon storage and their potential to emit a huge amount of carbon emissions once they are drained. Their annual carbon emissions of 2 billion tonnes are a paramount issue in the global effort to mitigate climate change. However, the perilous and far-reaching consequences from peat drainage activities are not limited to ...

  • Stormwater input of pyrethroid insecticides to an urban river

    The American River flows for nearly 50 km through highly urbanized lands surrounding Sacramento, California, USA. Twenty‐three streams, drainage canals, or pumping stations discharge urban runoff to the river, with the cumulative effect of nearly doubling the river's flow during rain events. During winter storms, the water column in the most downstream 13‐km reach of the river exhibited toxicity ...
