Previous academic work on Portfolio Decision Analysis (PDA) have pointed at the advantage of using PDA in multi-actor situations and environmental sectors, but have also pointed at the lack of research done in such case studies. Currently there exist situations where PDA would be beneficial but current methods are not able to analyse the systems...

Foul sewer networks face many challenges related to new pressures and ageing infrastructure. There is a need to be able to evaluate how networks will be able to adapt to varying population densities, urban development and ecologic changes. Some suggest the use of exploratory models to test large numbers of network configurations, intended as...

The aim of the research is to aid selection of Household Water Treatment and Storage (HWTS) technologies. By creating an overview of important criteria for choosing between HWTS in a certain context, information on trade-offs is gathered. To do so, an explorative assessment is made of HWTS preferences in various contexts.

Water challenges the livelihood of all living beings through its scarcity and its abundance. Due to climate change these extremes will intensify in the future. As mankind continues to cluster in economic centre points, housing areas as well as infrastructure increases. This situation forces the water to run off rather than infiltrate. Inundated...

Site selection is a critical factor in the ability to provide safe and healthy environment for refugees. At the outset of an emergency, limited resource and time create large planning uncertainties and current refugee sites’ assessments based on field visit are no longer adequate. The selection of unsuitable locations triggers a number of issues...

Sewer assets face a great challenge for being underground assets and for experiencing constant deterioration and aging. Reactive decisions are no longer technically nor economically viable, and hence asset managers are migrating to the implementation of proactive strategies. Despite this, managers are making decisions that are poorly justified,...

A transition to a circular use of resources is becoming increasingly important in all fields of research, including the management of water in urban environments. With the current linear system valuable resources are lost. In addition, a circular system can contribute to the processing of the expected increasing intensity of precipitation. The...

Small leaks in water supply networks often remain undiscovered, resulting in large amounts of lost water. Moreover, small leaks can grow larger over time and may result in pipe bursts, having negative consequences for the surroundings. An automatic leak localization method is required to decrease the search area and hence localize small leaks...
