NEW – Effluent treatment and aquifer storage for agricultural use

The Shafdan Wastewater Treatment Facility is Israel’s largest wastewater treatment and reuse facility. The facility is located south of Tel Aviv, close to the coast and supplies approximately 140 000 000 m3 per year of reclaimed water to the Negev Desert in the south of Israel for agricultural use on 50 000 acres of irrigated [...]

Water Reclamation for Reuse and Groundwater Recharge

Designed in collaboration with the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the project also included the construction of a new reclaimed water distribution network and the construction of Rapid Infiltration Basins for groundwater recharge. At a project cost of $US344 million, financed primarily through municipal bonds complemented by a grant from the US EPA, it succeeded in [...]

Use of Seawater in Dual Municipal Water Supply

The project to use seawater for flushing toilets was initiated 50 years ago, and has helped to ensure that the city is able to meet its water demands. Since its launch, the system has expanded and now comprises 45 service reservoirs, 40 pumping stations and over 1,400km of pipes with corrosion protection. The seawater is [...]

Wastewater Reclamation and Reuse Network

?In the late 1990s Singapore initiated a program to become increasingly self-sufficient in its water supply. One component of the program, called NEWater, involves the collection of treated wastewater flows that would have otherwise been discharged to the ocean. Between 2002 and 2010 the program further established four NEWater plants with a capacity of 500,000m3/day. [...]

Aquifer Recharge with Stormwater

?As a result a number of strategies have been developed to address the supply demand imbalance and secure sustainable water supplies into the future. Recognizing that up to 90% of demand for potable water supply could be replaced with a non-potable supply, the City of Salisbury implemented the collection, storage and distribution of stormwater run-off [...]

Advanced Pressure Management

The leakages resulted in very high water use in most properties and high levels of non-payment, since the customers couldn’t afford to pay for new taps and toilet fittings, let alone their high water bills. The Khayelitsha Pressure Management Project was therefore commissioned in 2001 to improve the level of service to the community by [...]
