Evaluation of ground water quality in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh using remote sensing and geographic information systems (GIS)

  Lucknow being capital city of most poapulated state of India is facing tremendous population pressure. This has led to overexploitation of natural resources and among them water is most valuable natural resource essential for human survival and ecosystem. This study monitors ground water quality, relating it to land use/land cover and habitation mask of different water quality parameters are prepared by...

Use of multivariate statistical and geographic information system (GIS)-based approach to evaluate ground water quality in the irrigated plain of Tadla (Morocco)

  Twenty five chemical, physical and bacteriological features of water samples from 25 wells were analyzed by multivariate statistical tools to provide the characterization of the ground water distribution in the basin of Tadla province (Morocco). The 25 parameters determined include: temperature, pH, conductivity, IP (permanganate index), dry residue (RS), total hardness, total iron (FeT), several...

Predicting sediment concentration upstream of sandbags in gullies: Modeling and analysis

  The study was aimed at optimization of the use of sandbags in controlling gully erosion through the application of principles of hydrodynamics. Field studies were carried out in an artificial channel excavated on the catchment of Otamiri River at Federal University of Technology, Owerri. Artificial runoff was simulated into the channel by pumping water from Otamiri River. Sandbags of various patterns and...

Cost differentials and scale for newer water treatment technologies

  Although a number of jurisdictions in Europe have abandoned chlorine as a disinfectant, most water utilities with conventional water treatment plants in North America seem to rely on chlorine for disinfection. However there are a number of newer treatment technologies that offer advantages and appear to be cost effective at a number of scales. It is the objective of this paper to consider 5 newer treatment...

Design of a waste management model using integrated solid waste management: A case of Bulawayo City Council

  The purpose of this research paper was to design a waste management model for Bulawayo City Council (BCC) based on integrated solid waste management system. The increasing solid waste generation in the city of Bulawayo is evidenced by increased number of illegal dumping of waste in the urban communities. In this paper, a model that identifies cost-effective and efficient combinations of scientific and...

Irrigated agricultural production and poverty reduction in Northen Ghana: A case study of the Tono Irrigation Scheme in the Kassena Nankana District

  Irrigated agriculture offers opportunities for greater livelihoods security and poverty reduction in northern Ghana where climatic conditions do not allow for an all-year-around agricultural production. It is the knowledge gap as regards the contribution of existing irrigation facilities in the area that occasioned the case study of the Tono irrigation scheme in the Kassena-Nankana District. The investigation...
