  1. 1. PFAS in the water supply: source water contamination

    Författare :Dauren Mussabek; Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; source water; drinking water; per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances; PFAS; AFFF; UV treatment;

    Sammanfattning : Water contamination with per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) is a serious problem for water suppliers in many regions. Due to persistence of the substances and a complex distribution mechanism, PFAS can have an adverse impact on water quality. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Impact of Drinking Water Treatment and Pipe Biofilms on Bacterial Dynamics in the Distribution System

    Författare :Kristjan Pullerits; Teknisk mikrobiologi; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Drinking water treatment; Drinking water treatment plant; UV; Slow sand filter; Ultrafiltration; Drinking water distribution system; Biofilm; Biostability; Nitrification; Bacterial communities; Flow cytometry; Next-generation sequencing; 16S rRNA gene amplicon sequencing;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis addresses drinking water quality and microbiology in full-scale drinking water distribution systems (DWDSs). It examines how UV irradiation and slow sand filters (SSFs) alter the water bacteriome, and how the biofilm in the DWDS affects the drinking water quality. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Access to water : Rights, obligations and the Bangalore situation

    Författare :Jenny T. Grönwall; Johan Hedrén; Julie Wilk; Srinivasan Janakarajan; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; access to water; rights; human rights; water rights; India; Bangalore; tillgång till vatten; rättigheter; mänskliga rättigheter; vattenrättigheter; Indien; Bangalore; Water in nature and society; Vatten i natur och samhälle;

    Sammanfattning : The city of Bangalore in southern India is undergoing rapid urbanisation and administrative transition. Its growth puts pressure on the available water sources – being mainly the disputed inter-State River Cauvery and the hard-rock aquifers – with ensuing problems of access. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Spatial variability of geogenic contaminants in drinking water sources : Insights into hydrogeological controls, geospatial data for safe water supply and groundwater resource management

    Författare :J. Ijumulana; Prosun Bhattacharya; Felix Mtalo; Steve W. Lyon; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Drinking water; geogenic contaminants; potentially toxic elements; fluoride; spatial analysis; spatial variability; Tanzania; Mark- och vattenteknik; Land and Water Resources Engineering;

    Sammanfattning : The presence of geogenic contaminants in drinking water is a major health concern in many parts of the world. The interaction of groundwater with different rock types and sediments in the natural geochemical environment play an important role in controlling their mobility. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Aspects of drinking water supply in areas of humic water

    Författare :Talis Juhna; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; VA-teknik; Urban Water Engineering;

    Sammanfattning : The thesis investigated several aspects that are important for drinking water supply from waters with high amounts of humic substance (humic water). The results showed that the composition of humic substances is important in their sorption to aquifer material during surface water artificial recharge through infiltration basins to groundwater.
