Soil Aquifer Treatment: Assessment and Applicability of Primary Effluent Reuse in Developing Countries: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

Chol Deng Thon Abel

October 28, 2014

Climate change, rapid population growth and urbanization are causing water shortage and pollution, especially in arid and semi-arid regions of the world due to the growing demand in different sectors and disposal of inadequately treated wastewater to water bodies. To tackle these challenges,...

Sediment Transport in Irrigation Canals: A New Approach

Sediment Transport in Irrigation Canals: A New Approach

Herman Depeweg, Krishna P. Paudel, Néstor Méndez V

October 01, 2014

Sediment transport in irrigation canals influences to a great extent the sustainability of an irrigation system. Unwanted erosion or deposition will not only increase maintenance costs, but may also lead to unfair, unreliable and unequitable distribution of irrigation water to the end users. Proper...
