Removal of Arsenic From Ground Water Using Granular Activated Carbon
Batch adsorption isotherm studies found that activated carbon (Hydrodarco, 14 X 40 mesh, American Norit) had removals of arsenic as high as 94% for a GAC dosage of 100 g/L and an initial...

Vapor Phase Biofiltration for Removal of VOCs
The selection of an appropriate packing material for the biofiltration process is an important factor in the removal of contaminants from vapor phase. This study evaluates two different...

Evaluation of System Downstream Control
System downstream control (SDC) has been developed to optimally and automaticaly control canal systems. The objective of system downstream control is to maintain a reference water depth...

Technical Activities in a Large Branch or Section
The Texas Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) is currently one of the largest Sections in the Society. Similarly, the Houston Branch is one of the two largest Branches...

Organizing a Local Water Resources Technical Group
Participating in a local water resource technical group can be rewarding professionally as well as socially. However, if such a group does not exist in your area, organizing one is an...

The Birth and Success of Orange County's Hydrology and Hydraulics Technical Group
The Orange County.s Hydrology and Hydraulics Technical Group (HHTG) has been very successful ever since it was founded in 1991. The HHTG is incorporated as a Technical Group under the...

Use of NaOH to Control pH for Solubilization of Waste Activated Sludge
Waste activated sludge was collected from the final clarifier of a local municipal wastewater treatment plant. NaOH was used in comparison made of the controlled pH batch experiments with...

Volunteer Organizations Use of Appropriate Technology in Developing Countries
The water and sanitation needs facing developing countries are formidable. This paper discusses the experience of a volunteer organization, the Water and Sanitation Consultancy Group,...

Education and Research Needs for Appropriate Technology
Appropriate technology and sustainable development are inextricably interrelated and the engineering profession is increasingly realizing that greater care must be given to taking these...

ASCE Regulated Riparian Code and Florida's Regulated Riparian Experience: The Role for Voluntary Reallocation
The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) model state water code for states under riparian common law offers a comprehensive administrative permitting process for allocating water...

Appropriate Technology for Sustainable Development
The inventiveness of the 20th century is forcing engineers (and others) to look at the multitude of technology options available, to develop criteria and methods for evaluating each option—and...
