  • Public-private Partnerships in the Water Sector: From Theory to Practice

    Ensuring quality and affordability in the water services is a fundamental requirement for the social, economic and environmental development of modern societies. Achieving this goal requires dealing with a large diversity of challenges, such as efficiency, investment, governance, procurement and sustainability, while ensuring the alignment of the ...

  • Urban Pluvial and Coincidental Flooding

    Pluvial flooding is defined as flooding that results from rainfall-generated overland flow, before the runoff enters any watercourse or sewer.  It is usually associated with high intensity rainfall events (typically >30mm/h) but can also occur with lower intensity rainfall or melting snow where the ground is saturated, frozen, developed or ...

  • Coastal Lagoons in Europe: Integrated Water Resource Strategies

    Lagoons represent nearly 13% of the shoreline globally and around 5% in Europe. Coastal lagoons are shallow water bodies separated from the ocean by a barrier (e.g., narrow spit), connected at least intermittently to the ocean by one or more restricted inlets, and usually geographically oriented parallel to the shore-line. Coastal lagoons are ...

  • Groundwater Arsenic Remediation

    Arsenic abatement from groundwater in locations with a central water distribution system is relatively simple. The real challenge is selecting the most effective and affordable treatment and scale up option for locations which lack the appropriate infrastructure. Groundwater Arsenic Remediation: Treatment Technology and Scale UP provides the ...

  • Applications of Activated Sludge Models

    In 1982 the International Association on Water Pollution Research and Control (IAWPRC), as it was then called, established a Task Group on Mathematical Modelling for Design and Operation of Activated Sludge Processes. The aim of the Task Group was to create a common platform that could be used for the future development of models for COD and N ...

  • Water and Wastewater Finance and Pricing: The Changing Landscape

    This new edition of Water and Wastewater Finance and Pricing: The Changing Landscape analyses the process for developing an effective financial plan, focusing on components such as public and private sector financing, credit facilities, system development charges, interest rates, cost of debt issuance, and market conditions. Fully revised ...

  • The Regulation of Water and Waste Services:

    The public water supply, urban wastewater and urban waste management services are essential to the well-being of citizens, public health and economic activities. These are generally provided under natural or legal monopoly, so there is no incentive for utilities to search for greater efficiency and effectiveness and as such there is an increasing ...

  • Reservoir Eutrophication: Preventive Management

    The overall objective of Reservoir Eutrophication: Preventive Management is to present the environmental and anthropogenic factors associated with the process of eutrophication and algal blooms in the Rio Verde reservoir and propose lake use and management technologies in order to minimize the problem. Eutrophication process in Rio Verde reservoir ...

  • Benchmarking of Control Strategies for Wastewater Treatment Plants

    Wastewater treatment plants are large non-linear systems subject to large perturbations in wastewater flow rate, load and composition. Nevertheless these plants have to be operated continuously, meeting stricter and stricter regulations. Many control strategies have been proposed in the literature for improved and more efficient operation of ...
