UV disinfection is an efficient way to inactivate chlorine resistant protozoan pathogens such as Cryptosporidium parvum and Giardia muris. In the United States, regulatory UV disinfection credit is typically granted when turbidity is <1 NTU. However, studies show turbidity does not correlate well with UV dose responses and partial...

Bromate is a possible human carcinogen that does not naturally exist in surface or groundwater bodies. Its formation mostly results from ozonating bromide-containing water during wastewater treatment or drinking water production. Bromate is difficult to remove from water due to its high solubility and low reactivity in the aqueous environment;...

Magnesium is one of the most critical natural resources and 96% of magnesium used in Europe is imported. The present study investigated possible ways of implementing circularity in the magnesium cycle within the borders of Waternet, a water utility in the Netherlands. The wastewater treatment plant at Amsterdam-West produces struvite from...

In the context of climate change and urbanization, sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDS) are widely adopted measures to manage stormwater in the city on-site. However, their performance in practice often differs from modelled and laboratory-scale predictions due to the variability in properties of real sediments (in terms of size, shape,...

The presence of organic micro-pollutants (OMPs) in water bodies has become a major hindrance to protecting water quality in recent years. One of the main sources of OMPs is wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) effluents. One of the most recent Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOPs) technology is photo-electrocatalysis (PEC), which can produce radicals...

In the recent decade, a wide range of emerging contaminants (ECs) has been regularly detected in the wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) effluent, surface water and even groundwater. Among all these ECs, organic micropollutants (OMPs) are receiving increasing attention due to their characteristics of low concentration, difficulty in degradation...

As industrialization advances rapidly in pursuit of refining the quality of human life, there has been a release of organic micropollutants (OMPs) such as pharmaceuticals into various water reserves. This has endangered the ecosystem and the possibilities of water recovery. Commonly used tertiary wastewater treatment technologies have proven to,...

Though slow sand filtration is one of the oldest and effective means of drinking water treatment, the mechanisms contributing to bacteria and viruses removal are not well understood. The lack of understanding of actual removal potential and different mechanisms occurring in the filter bed has limited the development of new filter design and...

Research towards aquathermal energy solutions is still in a pioneering phase. Especially in urban environments, these solutions could potentially form the missing connection between heating supply and demand. This study focuses on the application of these solutions in the city canal waters in the largest city of the Netherlands, Amsterdam ....

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...

As antibiotics now save millions of human and animal lives annually, the World Health Organisation (WHO, 2019) declared Antibiotic Resistance (AR) as the number five most dangerous risk to global health. Several researchers mention WWTPs to be an important source for AR as the growth of bacteria is stimulated in an environment with a selective...

This thesis proposes a novel design approach for a monitoring system that can detect hidden leaks in intermittent water supply (IWS) systems. Cities with IWS conditions in their drinking water network, such as Nairobi and Harare, often have a high percentage of non-revenue water (NRW) in their system. Estimations of the amount of NRW in these...

Intensive urbanisation enhances warming of cities’ ambient and subsoil environment. The local drinking water distribution system (DWDS) is likewise affected. Hotspots of anthropogenic heating were perceived to influence drinking water temperature and pose a threat for microbial drinking water quality. Information on temporal and spatial relation...

The transition towards sustainable and resource efficient urban water systems is a major challenge nowadays. To meet the high demands of urban life resources need to be efficiently used and resource recovery from generated “waste” streams should become a “new normal”. Water and wastewater can provide an alternative and environmentally viable...

Wastewater discharged from the domestic household has proven to be a potential source for resource recovery. Apart from wastewater, kitchen organic waste contains an enormous amount of energy in terms of organic content and nutrients such as TKN and TPH. Now that the disposal of waste into landfills is prohibited in most parts of Europe, one of...

The city of Amsterdam aims to supply buildings in the historic centre of Amsterdam with sustainable, reliable, and affordable heat for space heating. However, currently only hight temperature heat from biomass and waste incinerators can generate sufficient heat to supply this area. This solution does not lead to reducing the carbon emission...

The removal of organic micropollutants (OMPs) in the aquatic environment is crucial to avoid health hazards. Zeolites have been confirmed as a selective adsorbent and can effectively remove target OMPs. To achieve sustainable application of adsorbents, regeneration of zeolites is required. <br/>The objective of this study was to investigate the...

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...

The wide application of pesticides, pharmaceuticals and personal care products cause an increasing contamination of aquatic systems. Adsorption by zeolites is a promising process to remove target organic micro-pollutants (OMPs) selectively from water bodies. In order to have a sustainable adsorption process, restoring the adsorption capacity of...
