  2. 2. Assessment of stormwater and snowmelt quality based on water management priorities and the consequent water quality parameters

    University dissertation from Luleå University of Technology

    Author : Helen Galfi; Maria Viklander; Jiri Marsalek; Helene Österlund; Jon M. Hathaway; [2020]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Stormwater quality; indicator bacteria; water quality assessment; VA-teknik; Urban Water Engineering;

    Abstract : Stormwater and snowmelt pollution contributes to degradation of quality of the receiving waters. For assessing such impacts, it is effective to focus on specific causes of degradation, as done in this study of the quality of stormwater and snowmelt discharges into the receiving waters serving for supply of raw drinking water and water-based recreation.

  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; Jerker Jarsjö; Marcel van der Perk; [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; Physical Geography; naturgeografi;

    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. Hydrodynamic modelling of microbial water quality in drinking water sources

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

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

    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. 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; [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
