    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. Water Governance Policy, Politics and Regulation in Honduras

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Patricia Phumpiu; KTH.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Water Governance; Honduras; Institutions; Policy; Politics; Regulatory Governance; Regulatory State; TECHNOLOGY Civil engineering and architecture Water engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur Vattenteknik;

    Abstract : Water governance exerts an impact on the socio-politic life of Honduras. For instance, the new legal framework changes institutions. New water organisations are created, and new processes and proceedings are proposed. READ MORE

  4. 4. 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

  5. 5. 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; Hydrogeology; geographical and geological engineering; 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
