Fundamentals of Water Treatment Unit Processes

Desalination Technology

Physical, Chemical, and Biological David Hendricks Colorado State University, Fort Collins, USA

Carefully designed to balance coverage of theoretical and practical principles, Fundamentals of Water Treatment Unit Processes delineates the principles that support practice, using the unit processes approach as the organizing concept. Since technologies change but principles remain constant, the book identifies strands of theory rather than discussing the latest technologies, giving students a clear understanding of basic principles they can take forward in their studies. The text reviews the historical development of the field and then highlights key concepts for each unit process, offering a complete presentation of the full scope of biological treatment. Each chapter follows a general format that consists of process description, history, theory, practice, problems, references, and a glossary. This organizational style facilitates finding sections of immediate interest without having to page through an excessive amount of material.

Features: • Reviews how the field arrived at its present stateof-the-art technologies to shed light on current practices • Covers unit processes common to drinking water, wastewater, and any water requiring treatment • Presents theory and practice for each unit process and key factors in development • Examines uncommon issues that aid in applications principles, such as submerged flow for a Parshall flume and Henry’s law constants for 12 gases at different temperatures Understanding how the field arrived at its present places the technology in a more logical context and gives students a strong foundation in basic principles. This book does more than build technical proficiency, it adds insight and understanding to the broader aspects of water treatment unit processes.

It outlines the scope of EIA studies, including environmental monitoring and toxicity and hydrodynamic modeling studies. The book also explores the usefulness of multi-criteria analysis as a decision support tool for EIAs and then uses them to compare different intake and pretreatment options for seawater reverse osmosis plants.

Strategy and Performance of Water Supply and Sanitation Providers Marco Schouten UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education, Delft, The Netherlands

Since the last two decades, the most prominent institutional change for the water and sanitation sector is neo-liberalism. This book analyses the effects of neoliberal institutional changes on the strategies and performances of water providers. In this regard, studies are executed in the Netherlands, the Netherlands Antilles, the United Kingdom and Italy on what water providers can do, want to do and actually do. It is concluded that neo-liberal institutional changes matter for the strategies of water providers, but that no conclusion can be reached with respect to performance effects. Catalog no.

Tolerance to Environmental Contaminants Edited by

Claude Amiard-Triquet Universite de Nantes, SMAB, Nantes, France

Philip S. Rainbow The Natural History Museum, London, UK

Michele Romeo University of Nice-Sophia Antipolis, France

An up-to-date compilation of the views of international experts, this book covers the tolerance of living organisms to toxic contaminants. It examines the degree of generalization of tolerance of different levels of biological organization and discusses mechanisms of defense involved in the acquisition of tolerance to different classes of environmental contaminants, taking into account the limits above which such mechanisms are overwhelmed. It also examines the ecological consequences and specific aspects of tolerance, especially those that impact the environment and society. • Takes a multidisciplinary approach across contaminant types, habitats, organisms, biological levels of organisation, scientific disciplines, and approaches • Presents a state-of-the-art synthesis of the many aspects of the phenomenon of tolerance to environmental contaminants • Discusses the issue of over- versus underestimation of risk for the development of toxicity reference values • Supplies science at the frontier of research in the subject compiled by international experts from across the world The book explores the latest knowledge about the numerous biological processes responsible for physiological acclimation and/or genetic adaptation. It examines the frequency of occurrence of tolerance, particularly among species that have a key role in ecosystems, since this has tremendous implications for the sustainability of biodiversity and ecosystem structure and functioning. It also discusses how adaptive “benefit” of being tolerant may have negative counterparts in the long term, since processes involved in tolerance are energetically expensive and thus may interfere with allocation of energy which governs the success of reproduction and growth.

Sediments Contamination and Sustainable Remediation Catherine N. Mulligan, Concordia University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada

Masaharu Fukue and Yoshio Sato Tokai University, Shizuoka, Japan

Although valuable resources in river basins and other aqueous environments, sediments often receive much less attention from researchers, policymakers, and other professionals than other components of the ecosystem. Until now. Highlighting the important role that sediments play in the geoenvironment, this book focuses on sediment management for the purpose of environmental cleanup or management. It provides the in-depth understanding of the sediment-water environment needed to develop better management practices and meet sustainability requirements. The book discusses the contamination of sediments resulting from discharge of pollutants, excessive nutrients, and other hazardous substances from anthropogenic activities. It examines impacts observed as a result of these discharges, including the presence of hazardous materials and eutrophication, and elucidates the remediation techniques developed to restore the health of sediments and how to evaluate the remediation technologies using indicators. The text explores the problems inherent in dealing with contaminated sediments in rivers, lakes, and estuaries and includes numerous case studies that illustrate key concepts. The authors provide wide-ranging coverage of the topic and include methods for evaluating the effectiveness of different remediation technologies. They make the case for the development and application of innovative management practices that create longterm solutions to sediment contamination to reduce natural resource depletion, continued landfill contamination, and diminished biodiversity in the aquatic geoenvironment.

Transport of Escherichia coli in Saturated Porous Media Jan Willem Foppen IHE UNESCO Institute for Water Education, Delft, NL

This book examines the occurrence of hyper-exponential deposition of E. coli, an important indicator of fecal contamination, and the causes of such behavior. The starting point is the well known colloid filtration theory, followed by straining or physical sieving, geochemical heterogeneity, variable deposition rate coefficients, and preferential flow mechanisms. The case of Sana’a, the capital of Yemen, served to evaluate the importance of bacteria transport processes in a field situation. The text delineates a series of column experiments with glass beads of various sizes in which the attachment of E. coli decreased hyper-exponentially, or on a logarithmic scale in a bimodal way, as a function of the transported distance from the column inlet.

Storm & Surface Water Spatial Pattern Dynamics in Aquatic Ecosystem Modelling Hong Li

Sediment and Contaminant Transport in Surface Waters

UNESCO-IHE Inst. for Water Education, Delft, The Netherlands

Wilbert Lick

This book explores modelling approaches to represent spatial pattern dynamics of aquatic populations in aquatic ecosystems. It combines models, knowledge, and data in different scales. It demonstrates that including spatially distributed inputs retrieved from remote sensing images in a conventional physicallybased Harmgul Algal Bloom model can be enhanced and that cellular automat based models using high resolution photographs prove to be effective in representing aquatic plant growth. The book also develops a synthesis modelling framework that includes biological/ecological growth, diffusive processes, and local effects in a conventional modelling framework.

While many books have been written on sediment and contaminant transport, this book takes a more focused approach, highlighting areas that have been recently investigated but not covered thoroughly elsewhere. It emphasizes the erosion, deposition, flocculation, and transport of fine-grained, cohesive sediments; the effects of finite rates of sorption on the transport and fate of hydrophobic contaminants; and the effects of major events such as floods and storms. The text assists readers in the qualitative understanding of and ability to predict the transport of sediments and hydrophobic contaminants in surface areas.

Series: Selected Papers on Hydrogeology 10

Bureau de Recherches Géologiques et Minières, Orleans, France

Istanbul Technical University, Turkey

Ghislain de Marsily

The hydrological sciences typically present grey or fuzzy information, making them a choice challenge for fuzzy logic application. An authoritative resource on fuzzy logic modeling as it relates to water science, the author takes an approach that incorporates verbal expert views and other parameters that allow him to eliminate the use of mathematics. The book’s first seven chapters expose the fuzzy logic principles, processes, and design for a fruitful inference system with many hydrological examples. The last two chapters present the use of those principles in larger scale hydrological scales within the hydrological cycle.

Université Paris VI, France

Presented at the International Association of Hydrogeologists Dijon Symposium, this book contains 43 selected papers, grouped into six topics, that address the following issues: large aquifers, resource assessment; large aquifers, water salinity and evolution; karstic and carbonate aquifer systems; geothermal aquifer systems; aquifer contamination studies; and aquifer monitoring systems and management. In celebration of the 150th anniversary of the publication of Darcy’s Law, the volume includes a summary of Darcy’s life and his contribution to science, and five invited contributions on modern methods to estimate the hydraulic conductivity of aquifers.

Water Resources Management Anticipatory Water Management Using Ensemble Weather Forecasts for Critical Events Schalk-Jan van Andel UNESCO-IHE Inst. for Water Education, Delft, The Netherlands

The use of weather forecast information with hydrological models can be invaluable for the operational water manager to expand the forecast horizon and to have time to take appropriate action. However, this method, called Anticipatory Water Management, often has adverse effects, such as when flood control actions turn out to have been unnecessary because the actual rainfall was less than predicted. Therefore, the uncertainty of the forecasts and the associated risks of applying Anticipatory Water Management have to be assessed. This dissertation presents ways of improving the end-use of ensemble predictions in Anticipatory Water Management.

Designed specifically for engineers with little or no biology training, this book covers diversity and function of microorganisms in environmental engineering systems, environmental bioengineering processes, applied microbial genetics and molecular biology, microbiology of water and wastewater treatment, biotreatment and bioremediation, and microbial monitoring. It also explores biocorrosion of constructions, biodeterioration of materials, biocementation and bioc1ogging of soil, biopollution of indoor environment, and biofouling of facilities. Each chapter includes quizzes and tutorials. A separate solutions manual is available with qualifying course adoption.

Reflecting a rich technical and interdisciplinary exchange of ideas, this collection focuses on the properties of water and its interaction with life. Providing an overview of the role of water in biochemistry, physical chemistry, earth sciences, and astronomy, the book examines the arguments of Lawrence J. Henderson and other scholars on the "fitness" of water for life as part of the physical and chemical properties of nature. Highly esteemed researchers from multidisciplinary fields develop a variety of approaches that help to illuminate ways in which to address deeper questions with respect to the nature of the universe and our place within it.

Multi-channel estuaries, such as the Mekong Delta in Vietnam and the Scheldt in the Netherlands, have characteristics of both the river and the sea, forming an environment influenced by tidal movements of the sea and freshwater flow of the river. This study discusses a predictive analytical approach for salinity intrusion and discharge estimate in multi-channel estuaries. The new approach agrees with 1-D hydrodynamic models and observations, indicating its applicability in practice. It has successfully developed a new theory and a new equation to quantify tidal pumping due to ebb-flood channel residual circulation and the related salt dispersion.

This convenient guide enables non-chemist professionals and students to apply environmental chemistry to remediation and control projects and to understand and solve environmental chemistry problems. Self-contained chapters provide access to key data tables that are ordinarily scattered in the literature and offer step-by-step details to worked examples drawn from real world applications. This second edition features new material on radioisotopes, inorganic/organic contaminants, and environmental forensics. Expanded chapters include metals, light nonaqueous phase liquids, dense nonaqueous phase liquids, and biodegradation.
