Investigation after including long term morphological assessments in the Environmental Flow studies. It is the aim of this research to assess the influence of changes in flow regime on the long-term morphology for the Mara river basin, thereby concluding on the significance of these effects for the establishment of the EFAs. Both a long-term...

Existing mathematical models for aerobic granular sludge have focused solely on lab-scale reactors. In this study, an effort was made to adapt these models to simulate the processes of full-scale installations. The model is the first aerobic granular sludge model to use transient radial diffusion and multiple granule fractions. Aerobic and...

Additional thesis - Due to an expected increase in rainfall intensity in the future because of climate change for the area of Rotterdam, the amount of storm water runoff will increase as well, resulting in higher stress on the sewer system. But until now we don’t fully understand the behavior of a sewer system. This additional thesis should help...

Water scarcity is a severe problem that needs to be faced to avoid devastating effects in future generations (WWAP, 2017). Changes need to be made in the direction of a circular economy, where water is used wisely and wastewater is not an end product, but a resource mine (2030 WRG, 2015). To do so, there are available technologies with great...

The poor quality of many Colombian surface waters forces us to seek alternative, sustainable treatment solutions with the ability to manage peak pollution events and to guarantee the uninterrupted provision of safe drinking water to the population. This review assesses the potential of using riverbank filtration (RBF) for the highly turbid...

High temperature aquifer thermal energy storage (HT-ATES) is an energy efficient way to store heat in the subsurface, recovery efficiencies of 60-85% have been found in earlier research. The TU-Delft is step by step changing its policies into a more environmental friendly approach and a HT-ATES system could be the next step in this process by...

This thesis focuses on identifying flood-prone locations, flood vulnerability and analyzing risk for the Municipality of Rotterdam. Municipal call center data of flooding complaints from 2012-2016 are investigated to identify the most flood-prone locations, which are called hot spots. This is performed by creating heat maps of the flooding...

Additional thesis - The Pungue river originates in Zimbabwe and drains into the Indian Ocean creating a large alluvial estuary. The river discharge generated in the Eastern Highlands of Zimbabwe is an important source of fresh water for water consumers in Mozambique. In Mozambique the fresh water is used for drinking water production for the...

This research studies different hydrological models in the catchments with various climates in the USA, and MODIS snow cover maps are introduced to assess and improve the models. In this research, assessment of the value of MODIS snow cover data in the hydrological modeling process is the main objective. Nine MOPEX catchments in the continental...

The mean water level in estuaries rises in the landward direction due to a combination of the density gradient, the tidal asymmetry, and the backwater effect. This phenomenon is more prominent under an increase of the fresh water discharge, which strongly intensifies both the tidal asymmetry and the backwater effect. However, the interactions...

Within hydrology evaporation is one of the most important terms in the water- and land surface energy balance. However evaporation is difficult to estimate accurately. Conventional techniques to measure actual evaporation have their drawbacks. One of the main drawbacks is that multiple sensors need to be used, with all their own bias. One of...

Fat, oil and grease (FOG) deposits are one of the leading causes of sewer system blockages, thereby increasing the risks of undesired and polluting flooding and sewer overflows. FOG accumulates throughout the entire sewer network; e.g., in public sewer pipes and lateral house connections it reduces the available discharge capacity, and in pump...

Ladysmith, a small city in KwaZulu-Natal (South Africa) had to deal with severe floods in the past. To prevent the city against floods like this, the Ladysmith Flood Protection Scheme was implemented in 1998. After the implementation of this scheme, there were still some floods. The goal of this project is to identify the causes of the floods...

The rapid economic and population growth recently drives Maputo to become more metropolitan, with construction sector as one of the pillars to support its transformation. This progressive move is, however, hindered by one of the most crucial problems: water scarcity. Water is essentially required by construction sector, especially in concrete...

The Mara River Basin (MRB) at the boundary of Kenya and Tanzania is one of the many river basins in the world that has to cope with increasing water scarcity. The MRB supports the world-renowned Maasai Mara National Reserve and Serengeti National Park, as well as growing numbers of farmers and pastoralists. Increasing water demand, deforestation...
