  1. 1. Challenges and Opportunities For Safe Water Supply in Mozambique

    University dissertation from Department of Water Resources Engineering, Lund Institute of Technology, Lund University

    Author : Nelson Matsinhe; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; service quality; sustainability.; water treatment; water supply;

    Abstract : In Mozambique, despite considerable investments in the promotion of drinking water supplies, the access to quality water of sufficient quantity for the majority of people is still far from optimal. Current official figures report that nearly half of the country´s population and about 45 per cent of urban residents do not have access to safe water. READ MORE

  2. 2. Hydrodynamic modelling of microbial water quality in drinking water sources

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Ekaterina Sokolova; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Bacteroidales; E. coli; faecal contamination; faecal indicators; microbial source tracking; pathogens; QMRA; risk assessment;

    Abstract : The faecal contamination of water sources can cause waterborne disease outbreaks among drinking water consumers. To design drinking water treatment and minimise consumer health risks, knowledge on source water quality is needed. READ MORE

  3. 3. Basin-scale change in water availability and water quality under intensified irrigated agriculture

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Physical Geography and Quaternary Geology, Stockholm University

    Author : Rebecka Törnqvist; Stockholms universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Irrigation; Hydrology; Land-use change; Basin-scale; Central Asia; Aral Sea; Semi-arid; Return flow; Water saving; Health risk; Water quality; Surface water; Groundwater; Nitrogen; Attenuation; Recirculation; Climate change; naturgeografi; Physical Geography;

    Abstract : Changes in land use and water use can greatly impact the cycling of water and water-borne substances. Increased redistribution of river water to irrigated fields can cause enhanced evapotranspiration and decreased river discharge. READ MORE

  4. 4. Sustainable and Safe Use of Non-conventional Waters -Reclaimed Water and Desalinated Water

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Physical Geography and Quaternary Geology, Stockholm University

    Author : Shuang Liu; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Water reuse; Desalination; Strategy; Water security; Guidelines; Policy; Microbial risk assessment;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Vatten är inte bara en oumbärlig resurs varav allt liv är beroende. Det är också en grundläggande ekonomisk resurs för samhällsutvecklingen. Av allt vatten på jorden är bara 0,34% tillgängligt för människan. Övriga vattenresurser föreligger som saltvatten, is eller djupt liggande grundvatten. READ MORE

  5. 5. Hydrodynamic and Microbiological Modelling of Water Quality in Drinking Water Sources

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Ekaterina Sokolova; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Vattenteknik; Water engineering; Miljöteknik; Environmental engineering; fate and transport modelling; inactivation; pathogens; faecal indicators; Bacteroidales; microbial source tracking; microcosm experiment; ECO Lab; MIKE 3;

    Abstract : Faecal contamination of drinking water sources poses risks for waterborne disease outbreaks. To manage these risks the fate and transport of faecal contamination in a drinking water source need to be understood and quantitatively described. READ MORE
