About this book

Reviewing some of the most recent developments associated with the management of surface and sub-surface water resources, this book contains papers presented at the Second International Conference on Water Resources Management. The contributions come from specialists involved in research and development activities across a wide range of water resources and management topics. Individual papers are divided under the headings: quality and pollution control; water management and planning; river basin management; irrigation problems; residential water management; waste water treatment and management; decision support systems; hydrological modelling; reservoirs and lakes; and flood risk. A series of invited contributions by well-known researchers are also featured.


Section 1 Water management and planning: Aquifer development optimization - the case of the Palmela aquifer; Urban water planning - working with subjectivity; Rural water use efficiency, a major key to increase production and reduce the burden on our valuable water resource; Greenroofs as a part of urban water management; The study on systems analysis of multiple raw water sources operation; Numerical calculation of chlorine dioxide concentration in drinking water supply system; Optimising a cascade of hydroelectric power stations with the WOLF package; A hybrid model coupling analytic simulation with optimization for rule-curve based operation in tandem multireservoir systems. Section 2 Waste water treatment and management: Wastewater treatment scenarios - Olkusz Water Supply and Sewerage Company case study; Requirements for design and operation of sewage treatment plants with infiltration of effluents into groundwater; An innovative approach to the synthesis of sorbent materials for metal fixation; Innovative quality control strategies in controlling drinking water production; Removal of organic pollutants from wastewater using humic substances; Nitrogen and phosphorus budgets in a subsurface flow wastewater treatment wetland.
