Sustainable Water Management in Buildings Book Excerpt:

This book expands the body of scientific knowledge on research and solutions for alternative water systems. It addresses a wide variety of water management issues in buildings, ranging from the technical possibilities, hydraulic and financial efficiency, and public acceptance of decentralized water systems, to their impact on sewage systems. Climate changes, population growth, and progressive urbanization are the main causes of the growing interest in alternative sources of water around the world. Decentralized systems are seen not only as solutions that can effectively save water, but also as systems that can operate partially or completely independently of centralized suppliers. With these aspects in mind, the main focus of this book is on showcasing a new approach to water management at the building scale. The findings and insights presented here will support the development of future technical guidelines for using alternative water systems in urban areas – an aspect that is particularly important since, in many European countries, these systems are only very rarely used.

Sustainable Water Resource Development Using Coastal Reservoirs Book Excerpt:

Coastal reservoirs are viewed in many regions of the world as an emerging concept of storing fresh water when the river basin is in flood. Similar reservoirs (or impoundments) can be used to generate tidal renewable energy and/or provide the catalysis for urban regeneration. Constructed near the coast in natural river basins, these reservoirs have a smaller environmental footprint and are less obstructive than inland dams. Written by an international group of Civil, Environmental, and Geotechnical Engineers, Sustainable Water Resource Development using Coastal Reservoirs discusses the latest research and breakthroughs in their use, while offering expert advice into their sustainable design and construction. The perfect reference for researchers exploring the feasibility of this emerging technology or experienced professionals who wish to implement this technology as a water scarcity solution or a tidal renewable energy source or for urban regeneration, Sustainable Water Resource Development using Coastal Reservoirs provides an expert resource to the design, construction and use of coastal reservoirs. The reference begins with a brief but readable examination of water quantity, quality design and geotechnical considerations. The book includes international case studies to clearly illustrate the various uses, design, planning, construction, and operation methods. These case studies include projects such as: Afsluitdijk in the IJsselmeer, (Netherlands), Zuiderzee (Netherlands), Thanneermukkom Bund (India), Sihwa (South Korea), Saemangeum, (South Korea), Chenhang (China), Plover Cove (China), and Marina Barrage (Singapore). Explores the feasibility/design implications for Coastal Reservoirs based on estimation of runoff, detailed assessment of water demand and estimation of water quality Provides design schemes/procedures for the construction and operation of coastal reservoirs Includes case studies to illustrate the design, planning, construction and operations of coastal reservoirs from around the world

Sustainable Water Management Book Excerpt:

This book takes a new and critical look at the underlying factors that affect the management of water resources, and its content is guided by three important visions. With the “theory” vision, the existing knowledge system for IWRM is reorganized in order to supplement new theories related to our society and science. We then introduce two distinctive case studies on how to achieve sustainable water management. Based on the “social implementation” vision, one study is carried out by the Research Institute for Humanity and Nature on Indonesia’s Bali Island, where there is a long history of educational and inspirational local-level water management systems with multistakeholder participation. A further study is based on the “harmony between science and society” vision, and the Ritsumeikan-Global Innovation Research Organization, Ritsumeikan University, proposes innovative water recycling system for the sustainable development of Chongming Island, an eco-island that belongs to China. These two studies highlight “science with society”, a new perspective on science that could promisingly lead to more sustainable futures. This book offers a valuable reference guide for all stakeholders and scholars active in water resources management.
