In this study, the relationship between water quality and agriculture in the upstream region of the Brantas catchment has been investigated, with a focus on Electric Conductivity (EC), Dissolved Oxygen (DO), pH, nitrate, Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD), phosphate and ammonia concentrations. The EC concentrations ranged from 120 to 570 μS/cm, the...

Globally, there is an ongoing trend to improve the live-ability of cities. Furthermore, the importance of sufficient urban response systems for storm water is growing due to climate change and urbanization. Sustainable Urban Drainage Solutions (SUDSs) are seen as a key tool to tackle multiple urban challenges. This is as their design is multi...

Dunea’s drinking water treatment plants (DWTPs) want to reach the new arsenic (As) companytarget of &lt; 1 µg/L, due to uncertainties on toxicity at the current WHO, European and Dutch guideline of 10 µg/L. The aim of this research was to lower the As concentration in Dunea’s effluent<br/>to &lt; 1 µg/L by improving our system understanding and...

The water quality of the Brantas river in Indonesia is of concern to several agencies on East Java. These agencies all measure its water quality in their own way in terms of locations, rhythms and parameters. The goal of this thesis is to find out if these agencies measure the same and if not, how these measurements differ. From these...

Leaching of phosphorus (P) from agricultural land is an important source of eutrophication in the Bollenstreek in the Netherlands. This is because floriculture has led to high P concentrations in the sandy soils with low organic carbon content, which are characterised by a low retention capacity for P. In this study, P concentrations in...

Saltwater intrusion in groundwater is a concern in many aquifers around the world. It results in deterioration of potable and irrigation water quality and degradation of ecosystems. The problem is exacerbated by fresh groundwater abstraction, drying climates and a rising seawater level.<br/>Esperance is a small town situated on the south coast...

Eternal aftercare for landfills is the standard in Dutch waste management policy after a law came into effect in 1996, meaning eternal waste management from potentially hazardous substances. A prescription of this policy is the application of watertight barriers on top of the wastebody. The policy also prescribes the renewal of the packing...

This study addresses the critical aspects of injection well clogging as part of an Aquifer Storage, Transfer and Recovery (ASTR) pilot infiltrating tile drainage water (TDW) from agricultural field into an anoxic brackish sandy aquifer for later re-use as irrigation water for flower bulbs. Two ASTR injection periods suffering from clogging were...

Seawater intrusion modeling is challenging either because of a lack of many approaches' ability to cope with complex environments or significant computational expense. Seawater intrusion models also face issues with parameterization and validation due to problems with many parameters and also a lack of observational data. Bakker and Schaars ...

Urban sanitation in developing countries requires systems thinking as there is a plethora different variables which can impact the delivery of adequate sanitation for the people. In the traditional sense, sanitation planning in urban cities focuses on keeping people away from human-waste related pathogens. As cities in India and several...

Resource recovery from waste streams is indispensable to shifting from a linear economy to a circular economy. Industrial concentrate is a waste stream that is actively researched to explore and expand the prospects of resource recovery. Strontium (Sr), an alkaline earth metal, while found regularly in concentrate streams has not been a focus...

Due to the predicted impacts of climate change on the frequency of storm events, water managers are challenged to improve and adapt the current urban infrastructure. Cities need to be able to deal with the adverse effects due to more frequent and heavier rainfall. This implies the need for sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDS) that can deal...

According to the United Nations, eutrophication is the most prevalent water quality problem. Developing countries especially are struggling to manage the increasing volume of untreated wastewater. A preliminary study of a Dutch-Indian partnership, developing universal watermanagement (LOTUSHR), has shown some indication of ortho-phosphate...

The temperature of drinking water is an important parameter, affecting physical, chemical, biological and aesthetic properties of the water. Currently, measurements exceeding the legal limit of 25ᵒC at the tap are exceptional. However, there are reasons to believe that the number of exceedances will increase due to climate change and...

Freshwater biodiversity is in a state of crisis with an annual decline rate of 3.9% compared to 1.1% decline in terrestrial biodiversity (Living Planet Index). The actual decline rate may be higher than estimated as many of the species are data deficient or not yet assessed or became extinct before assessment. We have far surpassed the...

Fresh water resources in coastal areas are under intense pressure from groundwater consuming activities, sea level rise and extreme weather events, which effectively amplify salt water intrusion (SWI) into coastal freshwater aquifers. Literature on SWI describe the effects of SWI, model SWI scenarios and explain possible SWI mitigation...
