Mao, Yuhan (author)
Urbanization has led to increased impermeable surfaces, disrupting the natural hydrological cycle and resulting in more frequent urban flooding and pollution. There is an urgent need for cost-efficient and effective stormwater management solutions to improve stormwater quality and facilitate its reuse. FieldFactors' BlueBloqs system integrates...

For this thesis a hydrochemical groundwater survey was carried out on the Caribbean island of Curaçao in 2020 as part of the NWO SEALINK project. In order to be well-adapted against anthropogenic and natural pressures, Curaçao needs representative data, yet thorough hydrochemical datasets were only sparsely collected in the wet seasons of 1977...

Curaçao's coral reefs are subjected to a deteriorating momentum risking the health and therefore sustainability of this vital ecosystem. Despite the dependency of the Island's prosperity on the condition of the ecosystem, research suggests that wastewater management is likely to be a significant contributor to this effect. Incorporating both...

Climate change, population growth and urbanisation contribute to an increasing demand for freshwater resources. In order to face this challenge, stormwater harvesting for aquifer storage and recovery has gained interest over the past decades. However, pollutants from various surfaces are transported with the runoff, posing a threat for receiving...

Feenstra, Abe (author)
Urban water management is faced with upcoming challenges due to climate change, the deterioration of existing infrastructures and the depletion of water sources. Climate change brings about more intense rainfall events and longer periods of drought. On top of that, the deterioration of the piped network urges for investments in the existing...

In the winter of 2014 upon 2015 the Hondsbossche dike, between Petten and Camperduin in the Netherlands, has been transformed into a dune area through sand replenishment at the seaside of the dike. The area inland has been appointed as a Natura-2000 area because of the highly appreciated ecological value. A reduction of saltwater seepage would...

Jonker, Tessa (author)
Biofilters are increasingly being implemented in urban environments to treat stormwater but knowledge on their pathogen removal capacity at field scale is limited. Adequate pathogen removal is, however, needed if treated water is reused. This research evaluates the fate of Escherichia coli, enterococci and Campylobacter in a field scale...

Versteeg, Pim (author)
Pressure on fresh water resources has led to water scarcity and increasing demand for alternative water resources, such as rainwater. Nevertheless, heavy metal contamination is a limiting factor for re-use of urban stormwater. This research focusses on the adsorption of heavy metal contaminants by biofiltration systems, specifically on the...
