Urban runoff pollution by Harry C Torno Book 8 editions published in in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide In most of the developed countries of the, World, significant efforts to control the pollution of surface waters have been underway for decades, and particularly the last years. A major problem is that while a great deal of work is being done, both in Europe and North America, it is very difficult to keep abreast of new developments. The Urban Water Resources Research Council of the American Society of Civil Engineers has for many years had as one of its major objectives the transfer of urban runoff technology among researchers and practitioners in the field, as well as to those engineers who are not in the forefront but who nonetheless need the information on the latest developments.
Hydroinformatics tools for planning, design, operation, and rehabilitation of sewer systems by J Marsalek 13 editions published between and in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide Hydroinformatics systems are systems that combine computational hydraulic modelling with information systems including knowledge-based systems.
They are gaining rapid acceptance in the areas of environmental planning, design and management. The present book focuses exclusively on sewage systems, starting with their planning and then going on to discuss their design, operation and rehabilitation.
The very experienced authors discuss business and information needs in the management of urban drainage, tools for collecting and archiving such data, and their use in modelling catchment hydrology, sewer systems hydraulics, wastewater quality, wastewater treatment plant operation, and receiving waters. The control and operation of sewer systems in real time is described, followed by a discussion of their maintenance and rehabilitation.
Intelligent decision support systems for managing the urban drainage business process are presented. Audience: Researchers into sewer design, municipal engineers, planners and managers interested in an innovative approach to all aspects of the planning, design and operation of sewer systems.

Urban water management : science, technology and service delivery by R Arsov 3 editions published in in English and Undetermined and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide Urban water management issues are particularly important in the countries in transition in Central and Eastern Europe.
During the last decade, political, economic and social changes in these countries have influenced almost every element of the public sector, including water services. There is an urgent need for the various countries to exchange information on this issue and to identify the best approaches to achieve this transition.
The book focuses on the acute problems in the field of Urban Water Management in Central and Eastern Europe countries in transition, giving a first-class illustration of the transfer of know-how from traditional NATO countries. The following issues are discussed: -Wastewater impacts on receiving waters and groundwater; -Urban drainage planning and management; -Urban flood protection and management; -Combined sewer overflow management and control; -Challenges to urban water supply; -Wastewater technologies and management; -Urban river catchment management - case studies; -Private sector participation in urban water services delivery - case studies; -Information technologies in urban water management - case studies GIS, data management, etc.
Flood Issues in Contemporary Water Management by J Marsalek 1 edition published in in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide In disastrous flooding running through the Czech Republic, Poland, Germany took the lives of a great number of people and caused economic damage estimated in tens of billions of dollars.
Both the general public and the experts are asking what we can learn from these recent events to reduce loss of life and flood damage. This experience is further extended by reports from experts drawn from 13 other countries, developing a broad overview of flood risk management, covering the ecosystem approach to flood management, including socioeconomic issues, flood impacts on water quality, human health, and natural ecosystems.
Advances in Urban Stormwater and Agricultural Runoff Source Controls by J Marsalek 1 edition published in in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide Notwithstanding past achievements, flood damage continues to rise throughout the world as the magnitudes of floods increase, partly as a result of poor land management and partly by climate change, growing populations and continuing development in flood-prone areas, and the aging and deterioration of flood defences. That issue is addressed here in terms of such broad issues as flood analysis, flood impact, non-structural and structural flood management measures.
Non-structural measures focus on flood plain management, flood insurance, flood forecasting and warning, and emergency measures during floods. Structural measures focus on catchment management, embankments and flood reservoirs. Post-flood measures are also discussed. Advanced water supply and wastewater treatment : a road to safer society and environment by Petr Hlavinek 6 editions published in in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide Stable, safe, secure and readily available water supply is one of the key factors in ensuring a good level of the public health and a stable society.
Other countries are also suffering from water shortages and insufficient quality of the drinking water. Many rivers in Europe and in other parts of the world are significantly polluted by insufficiently treated or untreated wastewater discharge. This book is based on the discussions and papers prepared for the NATO Advanced Research Workshop that took place in Lviv, Ukraine, and addressed recent advances in water supply and wastewater treatment as a prerequisite for a safer society and environment.
The contributions critically assess the existing knowledge on urban water management and provide an overview of the current water management issues, especially in the countries in transition in Central and Eastern Europe and in the Mediterranean Dialogue countries.

Dangerous pollutants xenobiotics in urban water cycle by Petr Hlavinek 9 editions published between and in English and Undetermined and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide The topics focused on evaluation of impact of xenobiotics in the whole Urban Water Cycle are an interdisciplinary task which has a rising concern these days.
Xenobiotics includes both inorganic elements like heavy metals, metalloids and man-made organic compounds such as pesticides, surfactants, solvents, fragrances, flavours, and pharmaceuticals as well as endocrine disrupters. Water supply, urban drainage and wastewater treatment systems were originally designed to solve just conventional problems such as supply of potable water, flooding prevention and sanitation. The main problem within the conventional urban water cycle approaches is absence of design to deal with xenobiotics.
Nowadays can be seen increased focus on rainwater use, wastewater reclamation and reuse in industrial and as well in domestic sector what increase the exposure to xenobiotics. Innovative approaches are therefore needed to prevent xenobiotics from being discharged into surface waters where they may give rise to impacts on the chemical water quality and ecological status of receiving waters as it is already recognized by the EU-Water Framework Directive. Under such circumstances it is needed to assess knowledge gaps within the integrated water management with a particular emphasis on xenobiotics.
Leaking sewer pipes, land application of treatment residues and increased focus on soil-infiltration of stormwater and wastewater further put the urban and peri-urban soil and groundwater resources at a potential risk that only rudimentary is accessed now. The integrated nature of the urban water systems and the ability of xenobiotics to spread across structural boundaries and into the environment where ecological systems and humans are exposed calls for an intersectorial and multidisciplinary approach to problem awareness and solution. Thus, there is a need to understand the sources, flow paths, fate transport, treatment, natural attenuation and impact of xenobiotics on both humans and environment in this technical system.
The main purpose of the workshop was to critically assess the existing knowledge on Xenobiotics in urban water cycle, with respect to diverse conditions in participating countries, and promote close co-operation among scientists with different professional experience from different countries.
