    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]

    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. Environmental impact of peat mining : Development of storm water treatment methods

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

    Author : Bjørn Kløve; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [1997]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; geographical and geological engineering; Hydrogeology; drainage artificial floodplaines; phosphorus; suspended solids; nitrogen; erosion; peat mining; peak runoff controll; sedimentation; water treatment; water resources; hydrology; hydraulics; Hydrogeologi; teknisk geologi; teknisk geografi; Geophysics; physical oceanography; meteorology; Geofysik; fysisk oceanografi; meteorologi;

    Abstract : Drainage of peatlands increases the transport of suspended solids (SS) and the leaching of nutrients to downstream receiving waters. Increased settling of peat and eutrophication of lakes has been noted in many studies downstream from peat mines. READ MORE

    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
