  4. Sediment Transport in Irrigation Canals

    A New Approach

    By Herman Depeweg, Krishna P. Paudel, Néstor Méndez V

    Series: UNESCO-IHE Delft Lecture Note Series

    Sediment transport in irrigation canals influences to a great extent the sustainability of an irrigation system. Unwanted erosion or deposition will not only increase maintenance costs, but may also lead to unfair, unreliable and unequitable distribution of irrigation water to the end users. Proper...

  6. Fate and Transport of Nutrients in Groundwater and Surface Water in an Urban Slum Catchment, Kampala, Uganda

    UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

    By Philip Mayanja Nyenje

    Urban informal settlements or slums are growing rapidly in cities in sub-Saharan Africa. Most often, a sewer system is not present and the commonly-used low-cost onsite wastewater handling practices, typically pit latrines, are frequently unplanned, uncontrolled and inefficient. Consequently, most...

  7. Groundwater Geochemistry and Isotopes

    By Ian Clark

    There remains a lack of understanding of environmental isotopes and their use, students and practitioners typically find the concepts of isotope fractionation to be more complicated than for geochemistry. However, this need not be so, if the basics are presented together with geochemistry, using...

  8. Harmful Algae Blooms in Drinking Water

    Removal of Cyanobacterial Cells and Toxins

    By Harold W. Walker

    Series: Advances in Water and Wastewater Transport and Treatment

    Although harmful blooms (HABs) of cyanobacteria are a major challenge facing water managers across the globe, currently no books cover the treatment of drinking water to mitigate the harmful effects of these algal blooms. A synthesis of current research literature, this book provides a detailed...

  9. Permeable Reactive Barrier

    Sustainable Groundwater Remediation

    Edited by Ravi Naidu, Volker Birke

    Series: Advances in Trace Elements in the Environment

    Remediation of ground water is complex and often challenging. The passive remediation technology, currently in vogue, is based on permeable reactive barriers (PRB) that allow water to pass through while the fence/barrier made of reactive materials remediates the contaminants. Although PRB has been...
