  • Silt Fence installation efficacy: definitive research calls for toughening specifications and introducing new technology

    Introduction: Silt fence is a joke on many construction sites. It is often seen just blowing in the wind, or sagging and broken down. Some specifiers won’t utilize silt fence on their sites because it is too often installed improperly, and not maintained. Yet, the need for effective on-site sediment control has never been greater. Sediment-laden runoff has been shown to result in the loss ...

  • Potable water tank - Brazil - Case Study

    The supply of potable water is problematic in Brazil. For months, the government in Sao Paulo admonishes to save water. Therefore are tanks required constantly to ensure the water supply in the future. We just finished the following project: 1 pc. Glass-Lined-Steel Tank ø 21,33m x 17,33m with glass-lined roof (Volume approx. 6.190m3;) Due ...

  • Characterisation of biodegradable organic matter in reclaimed water using a bacterial growth fingerprint assay

    Microbial regrowth, microbial growth after disinfection, is an important problem that deteriorates water quality during the storage and distribution of reclaimed water. Biodegradable organic matter (BOM) that remains after water reclamation processes directly promotes microbial regrowth. In this study we propose a novel assay called the ‘bacterial growth fingerprint (BGF)’ to characterise BOM ...

  • Enhancing climate adaptation capacity for drinking water treatment facilities

    Conventional water treatment processes (e.g., coagulation, flocculation, sedimentation, and filtration) are widely used for producing drinking water from surface water sources. Transient, gradual, or abrupt changes in source water quality that could compromise treatment effectiveness can be triggered by climate and related meteorological events, accidental or intentional contamination, ...

  • Assessment of the potential for potable water savings by using rainwater in houses in southern Brazil

    The state of Santa Catarina, southern Brazil, has been suffering from water scarcity mainly over summer due to high potable water consumption and outdated water supply system. On the coast, several cities have their population doubled due to tourism during summer. In this context, this paper aims to evaluate the potential for potable water savings by using rainwater in the residential sector ...

  • Comparing the microbial risks associated with household drinking water supplies used in peri-urban communities of Phnom Penh, Cambodia

    Most Cambodians lack access to a safe source of drinking water. Piped distribution systems are typically limited to major urban centers in Cambodia, and the remaining population relies on a variety of surface, rain, and groundwater sources. This study examines the household water supplies available to Phnom Penh's resettled peri-urban residents through a case-study approach of two ...

  • Leaching of bisphenol A and F from new and old epoxy coatings: laboratory and field studies

    Laboratory tests were carried out with three types of new epoxy resins to assess the release of bisphenol A and F (BPA and BPF) and potential halogenated phenolic by-products. Tests were carried out over a duration of 6 months in the presence and absence of disinfectants (chlorine and chlorine dioxide) at realistic doses and contact times. None of the three systems exhibited Fickian-type ...

  • Measurements of assimilable organic carbon (AOC) in high saline conditions using P17

    Biofouling caused by the deposition or growth of microorganisms on the membrane surface is one of the major concerns in nanofiltration (NF) and reverse osmosis (RO) processes. Assimilable organic carbon (AOC) has been a useful index to assess the growth potential of bacteria. In the case of drinking water, the AOC assay method has been widely applied to estimate growth or regrowth potential of ...

  • Quality and disinfection trials of consumption water in storage reservoirs for rural area in the Marrakech region (Assif El Mal)

    Traditional reservoirs for water storage are important systems of water supply in rural areas of Morocco. These reservoirs are fed by rainwater and/or directly from rivers through open channels; the stored water is used without any treatment as drinking water by the surrounding population. The present study aimed to assess the physicochemical and bacteriological quality of stored water and the ...

  • Thermal energy from drinking water and cost benefit analysis for an entire city

    The municipality of Almere is planning to develop a new carbon neutral neighbourhood. The area is located close to a treated water storage facility. By extracting enough thermal energy to provide 900 homes with energy for space heating and heating tap water, the temperature of the treated water is lowered by 1.16 °C. This could lead to an increase in the energy required to heat water for ...

  • Rainwater Harvesting

    With rainwater harvesting, precipitation discharge from roofs of public and private buildings can be collected in cisterns and withdrawn by pumps. The collected water replaces drinking water in areas where drinking water quality is not necessary to be obtained, such as in the household for flush, running the washing machine, to irrigate the garden but also in industrial areas. The main purpose of ...
