In potable water treatment, the volume of granular activated carbon (GAC) per filter is a major issue, both in commercial agreements and in filter design and operation. Once exhausted, the GAC is typically regenerated by thermal reactivation.

Workers at Chilean copper-gold mine port facilities will soon be quenching their thirst with drinking water from an innovative new seawater reverse osmosis (RO) system supplied by Koch Membrane Systems (KMS).

Landscape irrigation system is a combination of different irrigation system as suitable for various crop covering and requirement. Some misconceptions and doubts are still rising in the mind of the many people about using waste/ETP water for landscape.

The continued high cost of fresh water and environmental concerns are causing more industrial plants to explore wastewater reuse options. Many facilities are finding it can be more economical to reuse wastewater from specific process areas or from sources outside the petroleum refining or petrochemical facility that it is to reuse wastewater from centralized wastewater treatment plants.

Worldwide, cities and townships are facing many complex wastewater treatment issues. Although centralized sewers are seen as a preferred solution to wastewater problems, areas with centralized sewers discharding to surface waters, have been identified as source of many pollution problems. Lack of sufficient, even basic treatment is a risk to public health.

Typically open-sea water intake structures are constructed in the shallow areas where sea water depth is in the range of 3m up to 10m. Due to this SWRO plant with open intake will have source water with high debris, suspended solids and aquatic organisms requiring a very elaborate pretreatment system.

Water supply systems are fundamental infrastructure components sustaining community public health and economic productivity. This article reviews water supply distribution systems and components, aspects of their design and operation, and geographic information systems (GIS) concepts and tools which support these activities.

India is emerging as a world leader in irrigation schemes, and the 458-km Narmada Main Canal-the largest concrete-lined irrigation canal in the world-stands as a monument to the opportunities and challenges that face water providers.

With approximately one in eight people, or about 884 million people worldwide, lacking access to safe water supplies, seawater deasalination continues to emerge as the most viable solution to the growing water crisis.

Among numerous applications of ultrasound systems in diverse fields, use of ultrasound systems in destruction and prevention of algal growth in water is relatively new.
