Removal of inorganic contaminants and natural organic matter by enhanced alum coagulation : defluoridation at the pilot scale and application to arsenic
The removal of inorganic contaminants is a primary concern in drinking water treatment. Fluoride and arsenic both naturally occur in ground and surface waters throughout the world. Recent health concerns regarding extended ...
Improving flood preparedness in South-Central Texas
In order to prevent future tragedies, improvements in flood preparedness at the local level must be a priority. The emergency response community needs accurate and timely information to effectively protect lives, property, ...
Effects of flush slab supports on the hydraulic performance of curb inlets and an analysis of design equations
The new Texas Department of Transportation curb inlet uses 6 inch flush slab supports for the top slab of a curb inlet. HEC-22, which provides design equations used by TxDOT, states flush slab supports can reduce an on-grade ...
Feasibility of Water Efficiency and Reuse Technologies as Demand-Side Strategies for Urban Water Management
Potable residential water efficiency and reuse technologies have seen increasing adoption in recent years and have been estimated to reduce demands by up to 50%. This report present the results of an engineering economic ...
Catalytic nitrate reduction in drinking water using a trickle bed reactor
Palladium-based bimetallic catalysts hold promise as an alternative water treatment technology for nitrate (NO3-), but practical application requires development of a flow-through reactor that efficiently delivers hydrogen ...
Fluoride, natural organic matter, and particles : the effect of ligand competition on the size distribution of aluminum precipitates in flocculation
Fluoride occurs at elevated concentrations naturally in surface and ground waters around the world. If consumed at low concentrations in drinking water (< 1.5 mg/L), fluoride is shown to reduce the occurrence of dental ...
