A brief look at the U.N.'s freshwater availability map shows that nations with water stress (less than 1700 cubic meters per person per year) and water scarcity (less than a 1000) are mainly found in the Middle East, parts of ...
A team from Stanford University have released a report that states ecological chains worldwide are being damaged by human influence, which in turn is leading to significant losses of population in different ecosystems.
The theme of the conference is water quality and public health. The programme committee are seeking contributions that highlight practices and policies with demonstrable impact on service delivery levels, drinking water quality and public health. Themes and topics of interest include:
- Water Safety Plan implementation - Household Treatment and Safe Storage - Risk Assessment / Risk Management - Source protection - Health Impact Assessments for Water Quality Interventions - Innovative Policies and Regulations for Drinking Water Quality - Operation and Maintenance of Water Supply Systems - Risk-based Investment Planning for Water Supply Systems - Community Managed Water Supplies - Emerging Water Quality Risks
Berkley's Floating Sensor Network project launched 100 floating robots equipped with GPS-enabled smartphones down the Sacramento River on May 9. The launch was designed to test a new generation of water monitoring technologies. The 12 inch robots, called Drifters, are designed to provide real-time, high-resolution data of hard-to-map waterways. One of many possible uses is locating breeches in levee systems quickly enough to allow repair, before erosion destroys the levee. Other uses include identifying contaminants. Andrew Tinka, lead graduate student on the project notes:
“If something spills in the water, if there’s a contaminant, you need to know where it is now, you need to know where it’s going, you need to know where it will be later on. The Floating Sensor Network project can help by tracking water flow at a level of detail not currently possible.”
University of Queensland researchers have planted five hectares of Pongamia trees at Hope Vale, north Queensland in a bid to create a commercially viable plantation for sustainable regional development and biofuel production in northern Australia.
