  1. 1. Wastewater discharges and microbial variability in a surface water source

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Johan Åström; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Vattenteknik; Water engineering; Matematisk statistik; Mathematical statistics; Mikrobiologi; Microbiology; Biologi; Biology; Vatten i natur och samhälle; Water in nature and society; Hazardous events; catchment; surface water; drinking-water; wastewater; rainfall; variability; pathogens; faecal indicators; microbial risk assessment;

    Abstract : Planning for drinking-water safety in surface waters includes a systematic assessment of hazards in the catchment, and microbial contamination is considered a major health risk. The aim of this thesis was to identify and characterize microbial hazardous events reported for River Göta älv, Sweden. READ MORE

  2. 2. Integrated and Probabilistic Risk Analysis of Drinking Water Systems

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Andreas Lindhe; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Vattenteknik; Water engineering; Matematisk statistik; Mathematical statistics; Vatten i natur och samhälle; Water in nature and society; drinking water system; risk; hazard; risk analysis; water safety plan; fault tree analysis; integrated; probabilistic; uncertainty; customer minutes lost;

    Abstract : Drinking water supply is an essential public function but is at the same time exposed to risks. Since a totally risk-free society is not attainable, risks need to be managed efficiently to achieve an acceptable level of risk. READ MORE

  3. 3. Risk Assessment and Decision Support for Managing Drinking Water Systems

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Andreas Lindhe; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Vattenteknik; Water engineering; Övrig samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur; Other civil engineering and architecture; drinking water; water supply; risk assessment; decision analysis; dynamic fault tree analysis; multi-criteria decision analysis; water safety plan;

    Abstract : The vital importance of a reliable and safe drinking water supply makes efficient risk management necessary for water utilities. Risks must be assessed and possible risk-reduction measures evaluated to provide relevant decision support. READ MORE

  4. 4. Towards Energy-Efficient Drinking Water Production using Biomimicry

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Simon Isaksson; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Water Treatment; Liposome; Membrane Protein; Drinking Water; Supported Lipid Bilayer; Silica; Aquaporin; Biomimicry; Filter;

    Abstract : Water is a prerequisite for life and we therefore need pure drinking water to survive. Yet there are more than half a billion people that do not have access to pure drinking water. Water treatment can be performed in many different ways, one of the most commonly used being filtration. READ MORE

  5. 5. Microbial Risks in Surface Water Sources

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Johan Åström; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Vattenteknik; Water engineering; Matematisk statistik; Mathematical statistics; Mikrobiologi; Microbiology; Mikrobiologi; Microbiology; Miljöteknik; Environmental engineering; Pathogens; QMRA; Surface water; Flow-weighted sampling; qPCR; Bacteroidales; Bifidobacteria; Microbial source tracking; Stochastic modelling; Cryptosporidium.;

    Abstract : Microbial risks need to be properly handled for the provision of healthy drinking water. The mitigation of pathogens in the water source lowers the risk for infection associated with nominal and suboptimal drinking water treatment. READ MORE
