  • Measurement of oxygen transfer in clean water / American Society of Civil Engineers
    TD 458 M43 1993eb

    Measurement of Oxygen Transfer in Clean Water was developed to calculate the rate of oxygen transfer from diffused gas and mechanical oxygenation devices to water. The Standard is applicable to laboratory-scale oxygenation devices with small volumes of water as well as to full-scale systems with water volumes typical of those found in the activated sludge wastewater treatment process. It is intended that this standard be used by engineers in the preparation of specifications for compliance testing. This test method is based upon removal of dissolved oxygen (DO) from the water volume by sodium sulfite followed by reoxygenation to near the saturation level. The DO inventory of the water volume is monitored during the rearation period by measuring DO concentrations at several points, selected so that each point senses an equal tank volume. The method specifies a minimum number, distribution, and range of DO measurements at each point. This procedure is valid for a wide variety of mixing conditions. The primary result of this testing is expressed as the standard oxygen transfer rate.

    The Standard also describes how clean water tests can be applied to estimate oxygen transfer rate in process water. In addition, various components of power consumption are defined; methods for measurement of gas rate and power consumption by oxygenation devices are given; and the preparation of data analysis is discussed.

    Disclaimer: This standard includes a 5.25-in floppy disk intended to work on hardware/software configurations in existence when the book was published in 1993. Files on the floppy disk are available as a http: //dx.doi.org/10.1061/9780872628854.fm target=_BLANK> free download.

    Measurement of Oxygen Transfer in Clean Waterprovides the latest methods for measuring the rate of oxygen transfer from diffused gas and mechanical oxygenation devices to water. This Standard (a revision of ASCE 2-91) is applicable to laboratory scale oxygenation devices with water volumes of a few gallons as well as to full-scale systems with water volumes typical of those found in the activated sludge wastewater treatment process. It is intended for use by engineers in the preparation of specifications for compliance testing and by manufacturers in the development of performance information.


  • Guidelines for quality assurance of installed fine-pore aeration equipment / American Society of Civil Engineers
    TD 758 G85 2002eb

    Guidelines for Quality Assurance of Installed Fine-Pore Aeration Equipment provides techniques and guidance for use in developing quality assurance requirements for specifying fine-pore aeration equipment. Three methods for specifying compliance testing are described, including information on appropriate applications, advantages and disadvantages of each method, and the procedures to be followed. Two methods are based on conducting oxygen transfer shop tests, and the third is based on conducting full-scale oxygen transfer testing. The basis for compliance testing includes oxygen transfer testing of selected individual diffusers or two reference tests-dynamic wet pressure and effective flux ratio. A description of test procedures and diffuser sampling is included. Quality assurance benefits all parties involved in the manufacturing, specification, and use of aeration equipment by providing quality diffusers delivered at the site at a reasonable cost.


  • Standard guidelines for artificial recharge of ground water / Environmental and Water Resources Institute, American Society of Civil Engineers
    TD 404 S73 2001eb

    Standard Guidelines for Artificial Recharge of Ground Water describes the steps necessary to plan, design, construct, maintain, operate, and close a project for artificial recharge of groundwater. The recharge may be accomplished either by applying water to the ground surface for infiltration or by placing it directly into aquifers through wells.

    This Standard also describes the economic, environmental, and legal considerations, including water rights, laws, and regulations, as well as field investigation and testing procedures that may be applicable. The guidelines cover situations that may occur in many different types of projects and can be applied to basic or small projects by selecting the portions of these guidelines that are appropriate to the proposed project.


  • Comprehensive transboundary international water quality management agreement / Environmental and Water Resources Institute, American Society of Civil Engineers
    TD 345 C65 2001eb

    This Standard provides the most up-to-date model for comprehensive water quality planning and management of shared water resources. Based on the concept of shared sovereignty, this model agreement is appropriate for situations where the parties are prepared to relinquish a significant degree of sovereignty over their portions of the shared water resource. The objective of this comprehensive, integrated agreement is to achieve allocation based on equitable utilization. This model agreement is extensive and considers most aspects of planning and management of water resources, including administration, water quality and allocation, financing, and dispute resolution. It is sufficiently flexible for use on an international scale and in a variety of geopolitical settings.

  • Standard guideline for the collection and depiction of existing subsurface utility data / American Society of Civil Engineers
    TD 168 S73 2003eb

    Standard Guideline for the Collection and Depiction of Existing Subsurface Utility Datapresents a credible system for classifying the quality of utility location information that is placed in design plans. When subsurface utilities are discovered during the construction phase, the costs of conflict resolution and the potential for catastrophic damages are at their highest. That is why the collection and systematic depiction of reliable data for existing subsurface utilities is critical if engineers are to make informed decisions and support risk management protocols regarding a project's impact on these utilities. The Standard addresses issues such as:

    how utility information can be obtained; what technologies are available to obtain that information; how that information can be conveyed to the information users; who should be responsible for typical collection and depiction tasks; what factors determine which utility quality level attribute to assign to data; and what the relative costs and benefits of the various quality levels are.

    Whether used as a reference or as part of a specification, the Standard will assist engineers, project and utility owners, and constructors in developing strategies to reduce risk by improving the reliability of information on existing subsurface utilities in a defined manner.


  • Blast protection of buildings / American Society of Civil Engineers
    TD 434 B53 2011eb
    Blast Protection of Buildings provides minimum requirements for planning, design, construction, and assessment of new and existing buildings subject to the effects of accidental or malicious explosions. The Standard includes principles for establishing appropriate threat parameters, levels of protection, loadings, analysis methodologies, materials, detailing, and test procedures. It provides a comprehensive presentation of current practice in the analysis and design of structures for blast resistance. Commentaries on the requirements are also included. The Standard supplements existing building codes, standards, and laws, but is not intended to replace them.

  • Guidelines for the physical security of water utilities, ANSI/ASCE/EWRI 56-10 ; Guidelines for the physical security of wastewater/stormwater utilities, ANSI/ASCE/EWRI 57-10 / [American Society of Civil Engineers]
    TD 434 G85 2011eb

    These standards offer guidelines that apply to the physical security of facilities with potable water source, treatment, and distribution systems, as well as with wastewater collection and treatment systems and stormwater systems. Taken together, these standards can provide direction for utilities as they design or retrofit their infrastructure to ensure the physical security of water and wastewater/stormwater systems. Recommendations include the use of physical and electronic security measures to protect against various design-basis threats that could otherwise defeat the mission of the utility. Other considerations for utilities applying specific security technologies and methods are included.

    Additional physical security for water and wastewater/stormwater facilities is beneficial for continuity of business, protection of water quality, provision of sufficient water quantity, ensuring public confidence, and protection of public health and safety.

    These new standard guidelines, based on draft guidelines prepared by ASCE and the American Water Works Association, with technical input from the Water Environment Federation, will be valuable to anyone involved with the physical security of water, wastewater, or stormwater utilities.

  • Ground remediation : a practical guide for environmental engineers and scientists / edited by Nicholas P. Cheremisinoff
    TD 426 G763 2017

    Groundwater is one of the Earth's most precious resources. We use it for drinking, bathing, and many other purposes. Without clean water, humans would cease to exist. Unfortunately, because of ignorance or lack of caring, groundwater is often contaminated through industrialization, industry, construction or any number of other ways. It is the job of the environmental engineer to remediate the contaminated groundwater and make what has been tainted safe again.Selecting the proper remediation strategy and process is the key to moving forward, and, once this process has been selected, it must be executed properly, taking into consideration the costs, the type of contaminants that are involved, time frames, and many other factors.

    This volume provides a broad overview of the current and most widely applied remedial strategies. Instead of discussing these strategies in a generic way, the volume is organized by focusing on major contaminants that are of prime focus to industry and municipal water suppliers. The specific technologies that are applicable to the chemical contaminants discussed in different chapters are presented, but then cross-referenced to other chemical classes or contaminants that are also candidates for the technologies. The reader will also find extensive cost guidance in this volume to assist in developing preliminary cost estimates for capital equipment and operations & maintenance costs, which should be useful in screening strategies.

    The eight chapters cover all of the major various types of contaminants and their industrial applications, providing a valuable context to each scenario of contamination. This is the most thorough and up-to-date volume available on this important subject, and it is a must-have for any environmental engineer or scientist working in groundwater remediation.


  • Environmental organic chemistry for engineers / Dr. James G. Speight
    TD 196 O73 S64 2017

    Environmental Organic Chemistry for Engineers clearly defines the principles of environmental organic chemistry and the role they play in forming remediation strategies. In this reference, the author explores parameter estimation methods, the thermodynamics, and kinetics needed to predict the fate, transports, and reactivity of organic compounds in air, water, and soils.

    The book's four part treatment starts with the classification of organic molecules and physical properties of natural organic matter, halocarbons, phenols, polyaromatic hydrocarbons, organophosphates, and surfactants. An overview of remediation technologies and a discussion of the interactions that lead to physical properties that affect chemical distribution in the environment is also detailed, as are the important reaction classes of organic molecules, including substituent effects and structure and activity relationships found in Part Two and Three. Part four is devoted to the strengths and weaknesses of different remediation technologies and when they should be employed.

  • Antimicrobial resistance in wastewater treatment processes / Edited by Patricia L. Keen, Raphaël Fugère
    TD 196 D78 A58 2018

    Antimicrobial Resistance in Wastewater Treatment Processes

    Antimicrobial resistance is arguably the greatest threat to worldwide human health. This book evaluates the roles of human water use, treatment and conservation in the development and spread of antimicrobial resistance. Designed as a companion volume to Antimicrobial Resistance in the Environment (Wiley-Blackwell, 2012), this book is a multi-disciplinary synthesis of topics related to antimicrobial resistance and wastewater treatment processes.

    Antimicrobial Resistance in Wastewater Treatment Processes assembles detailed discussions written by many of the world's best-known experts in microbiology, civil engineering, chemistry, environmental science, public health and related fields. The book presents a collection of subjects that includes:

    Current knowledge of the role of the environment in development and spread of antimicrobial resistance Chemical analysis of antibiotics in environmental samples Molecular methods for analysis of antimicrobial resistance genes Advanced wastewater treatment processes and antimicrobial resistance effects Public perception of risk related to health consequences of antimicrobial resistance Public health implications of antimicrobial resistance with focus on wastewater treatment processes

    Antimicrobial resistance has gained a foothold in the global consciousness as a serious public health threat. There is a much greater appreciation for the role of the environment in the dissemination of antimicrobial resistance and the effects of pollutants that can potentially promote development of resistance in bacteria. Contaminants released from wastewater treatment plants are a concern. In Antimicrobial Resistance in Wastewater Treatment Processes , readers will be guided through examinations of the current science related to this important health issue.


  • Environmental impacts of road vehicles : past, present and future / R.E. Hester, R.M. Harrison
    TD 195 T7 E58 2017
    The first concerns that come to mind in relation to pollution from road vehicles are direct emissions of carbon dioxide and toxic air pollutants. These are, of course, important but the impacts of road traffic are altogether more substantial. This volume of the Issues in Environmental Science and Technology Series takes a broader view of the effects on the environment and human health, excluding only injury due to road traffic accidents. By looking across the environmental media, air, water and soil, and taking account also of noise pollution, the volume addresses far more than the conventional atmospheric issues. More importantly, however, it examines present and future vehicle technologies, the implications of more extensive use of batteries in electric vehicles and the consequences of recycling vehicles at the end of use. Finally, examples of life-cycle analysis as applied to road vehicles are reviewed. This book is a comprehensive source of authoritative information for students studying pollution, and for policy-makers concerned with vehicle emissions and road traffic impacts more generally.
