Conceptual models in hydrology are widely used, allow for easy interpretation and require little data. Machine learning models in hydrology often outperform conceptual models but lack the ease of interpretability, require large amounts of data and and do not obey physical laws. Hybrid approaches aiming to combine the advantages of both...

In Dutch polders, numerous structures like bridges, weirs, culverts, and pumping stations have<br/>been constructed over centuries to manage water levels. These structures play a crucial role in<br/>maintaining water levels within predefined targets. The flat topography of the Dutch landscape<br/>combined with the collective impact of head...

This thesis investigates the integration of algorithm unrolling and genetic algorithms (GA) for optimizing pump scheduling in water distribution systems (WDS), a critical component for ensuring energy-efficient water delivery. In the context of modern civilization’s reliance on clean, affordable water for diverse uses, the operation of a WDS,...

This research addresses the issue of rising soil temperatures, driven by climate change. As the Drinking Water Distribution System (DWDS) is located in the sub-surface, the drinking water temperature in the distribution mains attains this rising soil temperature. Because the temperature of drinking water is an important determinant of water...

Personal weather station (PWS) networks have the potential to supply precipitation data at high spatial and temporal resolution for urban hydrological modeling. Past research has shown promising results on the quality of PWS data, for example from Netatmo gauges, but studies on other PWS brands are limited. This thesis assesses the quality of...

Live Pole Drains (LPDs) are a plant-based drainage system used to drain natural slopes and prevent shallow gully erosion. LPDs are a Nature-based Solution built by placing a live fascine in a shallow ditch or gully along the slope direction, allowing moderate fluxes of surface runoff or seepage to infiltrate and high water fluxes to be conveyed...

In July 2021 severe flooding occurred in the South of Limburg, Belgium, and Germany due to heavy precipitation. Extreme precipitation events like this are expected to occur more often in our changing climate. Urbanization is thought to be another contributing factor to the July 2021 flood event. The Netherlands is expected to increase...

The hydropower development in the Mekong Basin affects the silt and clay concentrations in the river which has ecological as well as socio-economic effects on the Mekong Delta and its inhabitants. Therefore, the first objective of this research was to obtain a better understanding of the effect of hydropower development on the silt and clay load...

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...

Over the past centuries, the Dutch rivers have been extensively engineered with the construction of hydraulic training works. A changing climate and increasing demands of river functionalities require innovations to the system to ensure its resilience. Exploring potential applications of Xstream elements might contribute to the development of...

In dit onderzoek is onderzocht welke aanvullingen in het waterschaarstebeleid ervoor kunnen zorgen dat de beleidsontwikkelingen in Nederland aansluiten op de optredende verandering tot en met 2050. Hierbij is enerzijds in kaart gebracht hoe het beleid, met betrekking tot waterschaarste, zich heeft ontwikkeld van de Eerste Nota Waterhuishouding...

Climate change increases the urgency of spatial adaptation to extreme heat, pluvial floods and droughts in urban areas. To accelerate climate adaptation efforts, Dutch government organisations have agreed to work towards a climate adaptive and water resilient country by 2050 in the Delta Plan on Spatial Adaptation (DPSA). The implementation of...

In order to evaluate measures to increase water availability in and around reservoirs it is necessary to have reliable reservoir water storage models. For that reason, it is necessary to assess the validity of these models. The aim of this research is to do this assessment of two models in data scarce semi- arid regions. The Nakamb ́e catchment...

Machine learning models offer promising potential in precipitation nowcasting. However, a common issue faced by many of these models is the tendency to produce blurry precipitation nowcasts, which are unrealistic. Previous research on the deep learning model - TrajGRU (Shi et al., 2017) indicated that data imbalance in radar images and the...

In today's world, extreme flooding and drought events are becoming increasingly common globally. These challenges arise from various factors, with climate change and changes in land use being among the most significant contributors.<br/><br/>While numerous studies have explored the combined impact of climate change and land use on streamflow,...

This study investigates the connection between macro-scale parameters (MSP) and micro-scale water quality parameters (MSWQP) in the Brantas River, employing a multivariate linear regression (MLR) modelling approach. The analysis reveals several critical insights into the complex dynamics of water quality in this river system.<br/><br/>Key...

PWN is responsible for supplying sufficient quantities of high-quality water to its customers. The growing population and the effects of climate change, such as heat waves and droughts, are straining the capacity of the water supply network, especially during dry and warm periods when water demand increases. A significant portion of the drinking...

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...

Rivers play a crucial role in shaping landscapes and supporting ecosystems. This is demonstrated by the tiger habitats in and around Bardia National Park in West-Nepal, which rely on the Karnali River. This study contributes to a larger effort aimed at sustainably managing these tiger habitats. Monitoring the rivers in this remote area is...

India, a predominantly rural country, relies on agriculture, with smallholder farmers owning a small portion of cultivable land. Maharashtra, a major cotton-growing region, faces water scarcity and drought events, leading to low crop yields and farmer indebtedness, followed by high suicide rates. Micro irrigation, such as drip and sprinkler...
