  1. 1. Impact of Drinking Water Treatment and Pipe Biofilms on Bacterial Dynamics in the Distribution System

    Author : Kristjan Pullerits; Teknisk mikrobiologi; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Drinking water treatment; Drinking water treatment plant; UV; Slow sand filter; Ultrafiltration; Drinking water distribution system; Biofilm; Biostability; Nitrification; Bacterial communities; Flow cytometry; Next-generation sequencing; 16S rRNA gene amplicon sequencing;

    Abstract : This thesis addresses drinking water quality and microbiology in full-scale drinking water distribution systems (DWDSs). It examines how UV irradiation and slow sand filters (SSFs) alter the water bacteriome, and how the biofilm in the DWDS affects the drinking water quality. READ MORE

  2. 2. Access to water : Rights, obligations and the Bangalore situation

    Author : Jenny T. Grönwall; Johan Hedrén; Julie Wilk; Srinivasan Janakarajan; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : The city of Bangalore in southern India is undergoing rapid urbanisation and administrative transition. Its growth puts pressure on the available water sources – being mainly the disputed inter-State River Cauvery and the hard-rock aquifers – with ensuing problems of access. READ MORE

  3. 3. Aspects of drinking water supply in areas of humic water

    Author : Talis Juhna; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; VA-teknik; Urban Water Engineering;

    Abstract : The thesis investigated several aspects that are important for drinking water supply from waters with high amounts of humic substance (humic water). The results showed that the composition of humic substances is important in their sorption to aquifer material during surface water artificial recharge through infiltration basins to groundwater.

  5. 5. Decision support for sustainable water security

    Author : Karin Sjöstrand; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : decision support; water scarcity; water availability; water security; drinking water supply; multi-criteria decision analysis; sustainability; cost-benefit analysis; marginal abatement cost curves; risk assessment;

    Abstract : Society’s large dependence on water, in combination with climate, socio-economic and demographic changes, places a massive pressure on our freshwater resources. As a result, water crisis, defined as a significant decline in the available quality and quantity of freshwater, is now considered to be among the most critical global risks to society. READ MORE
