Slow sand filters (SSFs) are essential for ensuring microbial quality and biological stability of drinking water in the Netherlands. However, gaps exist in understanding of removal processes of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) and ammonium and the effects of grain size, loading rate, and backwashing on removal in SSFs.<br/>Four lab-scale SSF...

Sewage systems hold a critical function within the fabric of urban infrastructure, primarily by ensuring efficient wastewater management. Within this network, sewage pumping stations emerge as important components. The performance of such stations is susceptible to being undermined by system failures and malfunctions, which can cause significant...

Globally, drinking water sources are polluted with poly- and perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). The toxicity and persistent properties of these industrial chemicals raised concerns about environmental and public health. As a result, drinking water companies are removing PFAS from drinking water using separation technologies. Anion exchange and...

In this research, the use of spatially applied adaptive pathways for rainwater resilient redesign of urban areas is investigated. It is explored how adaptive pathways can contribute to the integration of the climate stress of pluvial flooding in the planning process for the redesign of existing urban areas. This is done by developing adaptive...

Stormwater runoff carries solids from streets to the storm sewer and waterbodies, causing sediment accumulation, reduced hydraulic capacity and water pollution. Urban stormwater management is essential, but limited information on sediment behavior and treatment methods hinders decision-making. This study investigated sediment characteristics in...

The pressure on water and energy resources, along with the transition towards new infrastructure, requires an integrated approach to achieve future-proof concepts. A nexus approach can contribute to this by including the interaction between water and energy. This is also known as a water-energy nexus (WEN). Furthermore, when considering...

Being one of the oldest water treatment systems in the world, slow sand filters (SSFs) have played a big role in the water treatment sector due to their reliability and their effective physico-chemical and biological purification capabilities. They are still widely used as a disinfection step in many countries, especially those that do not use...

In this study simultaneous and continuous inline dosing of PAC and coagulant in UF was investigated. Surface water was directly treated with PAC-UF and performance of the system was assessed by looking at membrane fouling and organic micropollutants removal. Combining adsorption and membrane processes in one technique, hybrid membrane processes,...

Currently, organic micropollutants (OMPs) are continuously and uncontrollably released into the water environment worldwide, as the reason for their special properties, OMPs removal has been a global challenge. This study focuses on acetaminophen degradation by photo-electrolysis (PEC) activities, which is one of the promising advanced oxidation...

Small islands that support urban communities provide a unique opportunity to study the urban water cycle, its energy needs, and possible links to renewable energy. The aim of this paper is to explore to what extent an island’s urban water cycle and the renewable electricity production system required to satisfy the urban water cycle’s demand can...

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...

The presence of organic micro-pollutants (OMPs) has caused increasing contamination of aquatic systems. In recent years, the selective adsorption of target OMPs by zeolites have been proved efficient for OMP removal. For the potential application of zeolites in the wastewater treatment plants, zeolite granules are preferably used in order to...

Globally, water demand is rising and resources are diminishing. In the context of climate change and a growing world population, a further increase in water scarcity seems inevitable. Aiming towards a sustainable future, water should be used as efficiently as possible by minimizing water losses, which can be higher than 50% in some drinking...

This thesis proposes an approach for tackling the problem of data-shortage in hydrological modelling. A hydrological model, in the context of this thesis, translates meteorological data to stream-flow of a river, for a specific catchment. A model incorporates parameters that describe the dynamics of a chosen model, in this case a FLEX (Flux...

UV/chlorine, as an emerging advanced oxidation process, is able to degrade organic micropollutants in water via the generation of reactive oxidant species and direct reaction with HOCl/OCl- as well. In this study, light-emitting diodes (LEDs) were applied as the UV sources to investigate the efficacy of UV/chlorine process for the degradation of...

Due to climate change, our society must become more climate resilient, and this is also the case for drinking water distribution systems. Climate change implicates that temperatures of the atmosphere are getting higher. This may lead to that the drinking water may become warmer. One of the consequences of climate change is that alternative ways...

The Dutch drinking water benchmark has been carried out every three years since 1997. In 2011, the benchmark was incorporated into the Drinking Water Act. As a result the benchmark switched from a voluntarily benchmark executed by the Association of Dutch water companies to a mandatory benchmark executed by the Human Environment and Transport...
