  1. 1. Integrated and Probabilistic Risk Analysis of Drinking Water Systems

    Author : Andreas Lindhe; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; water safety plan; customer minutes lost; probabilistic; fault tree analysis; risk analysis; risk; integrated; drinking water system; hazard; uncertainty;

    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

    Abstract : Data availability is extremely important for water management. Without data it would not be possible to know how much water is available or how often extreme events are likely to occur. The usually available hydro-meteorological data often have a limited representativeness and are affected by errors and uncertainties. READ MORE

  3. 3. METHODS FOR TRANSBOUNDARY WATER RESOURCES MANAGEMENT IN WATER STRESSED REGIONS – CASE STUDY: SOUTHERN AFRICA

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Dinis Juizo; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; river basin simulation; water quality monitoring; stakeholders involvement; Southern Africa; South Africa; Mozambique; transboundary water systems; Swaziland;

    Abstract : Water resources management in water scarce regions like the Southern Africa Development Community (SADC) is challenging with both large hydro-climatic-induced scarcity and the considerable inter-annual fluctuations at the centre of the allocation problem. Water must be allocated both in time and space using acceptable criteria and most importantly, all stakeholders must adhere to the decisions imposed by water sharing agreements. READ MORE

  4. 4. Modelling water resources despite data limitations in Tanzania’s Kilombero Valley

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Physical Geography, Stockholm University

    Author : William Senkondo; Steve W. Lyon; Chong-Yu Xu; [2020]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Hydrological modelling; Recession analysis; Remote sensing; Water resources; Evapotranspiration; Transmissivity; SWAT model; Kilombero Valley; naturgeografi; Physical Geography;

    Abstract : Water is a vital resource for survival on the Earth. Sustainable management of water resources is therefore required for the wellbeing of present and future generations. A cornerstone of water resources management is scientific guidance supported by relevant data (in terms of quantity and quality). READ MORE

  5. 5. When water becomes a threat Risk assessment and risk management plans for floods and drinking water in Swedish practice

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Viveca Norén; Kevin Bishop; Beatrice Hedelin; Lars Nyberg; Sven Halldin; Kurt Petersen; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Flood; Drinking water supply; Risk management; Risk assessment; Flood risk management plan FRMP ; Integrated flood management IFM ; Tools and methods; Practice compared to theory; Sweden; Municipalities; Interview study; Document study; Earth Science with specialization in Environmental Analysis; Geovetenskap med inriktning mot miljöanalys;

    Abstract : Water is an essential but vulnerable resource. A shortage of good quality drinking water is a threat to human health and society as a whole. Abundance of water in the form of floods can also be a serious threat which can have consequences for the drinking water supply. To reduce these risks there is a need for systematic risk reduction.
