Dynamic Groundwater Remediation Design with Genetic Algorithms
In groundwater remediation design it has been shown that dynamic policies, in which the pumping strategies may vary throughout the remediation period, can result in more cost-effective...

Optimization of the Aquifer Remediation Costs and Design with Pulsed Pumping
(No paper) Pump-and-treat is a common technique for the remediation of contaminated aquifers. However, slow kinetic mass transfer at sites contaminated with organic compounds may reduce...

The Evolution of Florida Water Management
(No paper) The State of Florida has always been very cautious to protect it's natural resources which is the cornerstone of the State's economy. The availability to vast quantities of...

Simplification of Detailed Models of Water Distribution Systems Obtained from GIS Systems
For a long time simplified models have been used to simulate the behaviour of large water distribution networks. Often, simplification has been carried out by removing small diameter pipes...

A Risk-Based Approach to Subsurface NORM Disposal
(No paper) Naturally occurring radioactive materials (NORM) has become an environmental concern for the petroleum industry. NORM scales results when naturally occurring radium co-precipitates...

A Decision Support System for Assisting Operation of Artificial Recharge Systems
A series of simulation and optimization models analyzing artificial recharge systems have been linked within a decision support system (DSS) with a graphical interface. The model includes...

A Review of Established Water Markets and Quasi-Water Markets
This presentation provides a review of established institutional mechanisms which regulate the transfer of water withdrawal rights. Each method of water rights transfer is evaluated in...

Theoretical and Empirical Implications of Increasing Block Rates
(No paper) The U.S. Army disposed chemical agents, laboratory materials, and unexploded ordnance at the O-Field landfill from before World War II until at least the 1950s. Soil, ground...

Evaluation of Two-Species Model for Chlorine Decay and THM Formation under Rechlorination Conditions
(No paper) Typically, chlorine decay has been described by a first-order decay model. The first-order model, however, has two drawbacks: 1) the reactive species within the water is assumed...

Impacts of Global Climate Change upon a Regional Aquifer System in the Northeastern United States
(No paper) The Charles River Basin is a major water resource in eastern Massachusetts. It used for a variety of purposes including water supply, industrial cooling, waste disposal, flood...

Using Indirect Potable Reuse to Provide New Water Supplies in Resource-Limited Regions
(No paper) Historically, water resources needed for potable use have been derived from readily-accessible surface and groundwater supplies of freshwater origin because such supplies can...
