    Wastewater Treatment: Preliminary and Primary DVD

    Water comes in many forms: groundwater, surface water, drinking water, wastewater, stormwater, or dual use and reuse. Some forms may need greater treatment than others, depending on where it is discharged or how it is used.This informative DVD provides a general wastewater overview that also discusses preliminary and primary treatment, and how ...

  • Evolution of Sanitation and Wastewater Technologies through the Centuries

      Most of the technological developments relevant to water supply and wastewater date back to more than to five thousand years ago. These developments were driven by the necessity to make efficient use of natural resources, to make civilizations more resistant to destructive natural elements, and to improve the standards of life, both at public ...

  • Water, Wastewater and Stormwater Infrastructure Management

    Explains how to optimize the operation of water supply systems and the related advances in Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems Examines the advances in design and construction methods such as building information modeling (BIM) Discusses municipal budgeting, chain of planning, programming, and related subjects Tackles ...

  • Water Infrastructure for Sustainable Communities

    New model for water management is emerging worldwide in response to water shortages, polluted waterways, climate change, and loss of biodiversity. Cities and towns are questioning the ecological and financial sustainability of big-pipe water, stormwater, and sewer systems and are searching for “lighter footprint” more sustainable solutions. Pilot ...

  • Research Digest - Infiltration vs. Surface Water Discharge: Guidance for Stormwater Managers

    Urban stormwater runoff contributes to the degradation of receiving surface waters and groundwater. This degradation is caused both by the increased flows that result from urbanization (i.e., the conversion of land surfaces from being infiltration zones to impervious zones) and by the pollutants (chemical and microbiological) that are carried by ...

  • Integrated Urban Water Management: Arid and Semi-Arid Climates

    Integrated Urban Water Management: Arid and Semi-Arid Regions examines the integrated management of water resources in urban settings, focusing on issues specific to arid and semi-arid regions and on what make them different from other regions. It provides an overview of the Integrated Urban Water Management (IUMW) engineering approach for ...

  • Urban Water Management in Arid and Semi-Arid Climates

    Integrated Urban Water Management: Arid and Semi-Arid Regions examines the integrated management of water resources in urban settings, focusing on issues specific to arid and semi-arid regions and on what make them different from other regions. It provides an overview of the Integrated Urban Water Management (IUMW) engineering approach for ...

  • GIS Applications for Water, Wastewater, and Stormwater Systems

    Professionals involved in the planning, design, operation, and construction of water, wastewater, and stormwater systems need to understand the productivity-enhancing applications of GIS. Inspired by an ASCE-sponsored continuing education course taught by the author, GIS Applications for Water, Wastewater, and Stormwater Systems focuses on the ...

  • Wet-Weather Flow in the Urban Watershed: Technology and Management

    According to the National Resources Defense Council, stormwater runoff rivals or exceeds discharges from factories and sewage plants as a source of pollution throughout the United States. The Environmental Protection Agency identifies urban stormwaters as the second largest source of water quality damage in estuaries and a significant contributor ...

  • Stormwater Management for Smart Growth

    The challenges faced by professionals as related to the management of stormwater runoff are rapidly changing. First-generation stormwater management focused on providing flood protection and limiting peakflow, whereas now a greater emphasis is being placed on water quality. Consequently, stormwater management is shifting with more emphasis on ...

  • Wastewater Treatment, Plant Dynamics and Management in Constructed and Natural Wetlands

    Wetlands were historically neglected until it was revealed that they could be economically valuable to man. They are one of the most dynamic ecosystems in the world and have many functions for society. For example, natural wetlands provide food staples, building materials, irrigation of agricultural lands, waterways, shelter for wildlife, and a ...
