Water Erosion

MOST WATER ON EARTH IS IN A CONTINUOUS CYCLE BETWEEN WATER BODIES, LAND AND THE ATMOSPHERE.

THE WATER CYCLE IS THE SUPERHIGHWAY USED TO MOVE WATER AROUND THE GLOBE

An important component of smart water solutions is the cycling of water treatment solutions using processes by which water enters, moves through and exits soil– hydrologic cycle (hy’drolog’ic cy’cle).Erosion Control Forum is a collaborative working environment (CWE) essential for sustaining plants and soil organisms, transporting nutrients and recharging surface and ground water supplies.Water moving in soil also impacts the behavior and transport of soil solutes and their effect on water quality – often called the Blue Gold of the 21st century – Think before you drink (The environmental cost of bottled water).

A PROBLEM OF EPIC PROPORTIONS.

Human beings need to remember that they are connected, that their decisions impact one another and that they need one another to overcome current structural injustices.

 THE WORK TO ADDRESS WATER POLLUTION PROCEEDES AT A GLACIAL PACE.

 During the past three decades, desalination systems have emerged as effective solutions for transforming saline, brackish and contaminated water into useable and / or potable products. In addition” continue reading: With each passing year, the quality of the planet’s water measurably deteriorates, connoted challenges for the major users : the flow of water carries the essence of all life.

The environmental impacts of economic and often–times murky waters of silt build up i.e. dredge dumping are worldwide. Photosynthesis decreases with less light, resulting in even lower oxygen levels. Suspended solids in muddy water clogs fish gills and harm the eggs of fish and aquatic insects.

Erosion Risk Mitigation

Water Research and Flood & Erosion Risk Mitigation Planners strive for ways to keep this essential resource available and suitable for use.

ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE

Contaminated sediments in aquatic environments pose health risks to humans and other organisms.Environmental Toxicology (contaminants in the sediments) is also well–known to directly harm aquatic organisms or accumulate in their tissues, which can be consumed by humans.Nationwide, the full extent of the problem is poorly documented, but he issue (s) is well known that rivers, harbors, lakes, and estuaries fed by current or former industrial, agricultural, or mining areas frequently contain contaminated sediments.The potential adverse effects on human health and the environment are compelling reasons to reduce exposures. – continue reading

ENGINEERED WATER TREATMENT SOLUTIONS

 Peak water is the point at which the renewable supply of fresh water is outstripped by the demand and sustainably managed water is becoming scarce. The specter of “peak water”–a peaking and then decline in water production — has long been predicted and debated

 Soil contamination is an environmental concern and may lead to the more serious problem of groundwater contamination. Water discharges that are not properly controlled harm water quality in streams and creeks as well as important habitat in wetlands and other areas. Habitat loss from runoff is one of the primary obstacles to salmon recovery. Companies are required to have sand and gravel permits to control discharge of pollutants. The permits also control discharge of muddy water, which can harm water quality in waterways and habitat in wetlands. In waterways, for example, muddy water causes the water temperature to rise as suspended particles absorb heat from sunlight, which in turn causes oxygen levels to fall.

CHALLENGES FACING THE WATER QUALITY

There are two basic tenets of legislation that govern surface water quality. The first, the Safe Drinking Water Act, applies only to water used for public consumption (public drinking water).The second, The Clean Water Act applies to all water bodies in the United States.

Changes in the water channel

AREAS OF CONCERN

 Contaminated water bodies and watersheds, called areas of concern. Great Lakes Areas of Concern are designated geographic areas within the Great Lakes Basin that show severe environmental degradation. There are a total of 43 areas of concern within the Great Lakes, 26 being in the United States, 17 in Canada, with five shared by the two countries.

ENFORCEMENT OF THE CLEAN WATER ACT

  1. The geomorphic significance of step pools in mountain streams must assure the water future designed fish habitat enhancements that involve improving steelhead trout habitat – required fish passage characteristics and sediment transport analysis.
  2. Accordingly, the manner in which energy dissipation occurs also varies. With increasing flows, spill resistance gives way to a dominance in form and grain resistance. The conceptual model for the changing role of step–pools is illustrated with data from hydraulic analysis and modeling of step–pools in the  …continue
  3. The firm tasked (paired) with environmental professionals working in the stream corridor threshold designed fish habitat enhancements to improve the efficiency and management of environmental reviews to ensure violations would be prevented.
  4. This step–pool geomorphology is an important aspect of the steelhead trout habitat critical for sheltering juvenile steelhead.

 The terms river morphology and its synonym fluvial geomorphology are a science devoted to understanding rivers, both in their natural setting as well as how they respond to human–induced changes in a watershed. One goal is to predict what continue… These are some of the challenges facing the water quality status (infrastructure) of urban streams and estuaries –those affected by runoff and discharges from rivers and flood–plains.

As could be guessed, as rainfall increases, total plant production of organic matter increases, as does soil organic matter increase. Ever–evolving smart water solutions aimed at keeping toxic pollution out of waters, snow melt, and flash flooding, present challenges designed to regulate point source discharges required to address specific needs and conditions of watersheds within a region. These VE (value engineering) technologies are used to prevent surface erosion and accelerate the establishment of vegetation. In situ (in place) bioremediation is an innovative remedial technology that eliminates the need for aboveground treatment by using biological processes to destroy or transform contaminants in groundwater or soil while they are underground. Anaerobic bioremediation requires an absence of oxygen. Another example of small–scale stormwater management and erosion and sediment control requirements is a “bioswale” – a carefully designed stormwater bioretention basin that keeps rainwater runoff on the property, gradually transforming water AND releasing it into the ground and to the foliage, instead of sending into the public sewer system.

DRINKING WATER

According to JMP–WHO, in 2015, the number of people globally without access to improved drinking water is 663 million, and 2.4 billion people have no access to adequate sanitation facilities. Under–developed in ways that matter.

WATER MANAGEMENT

Storm water runoff is defined as precipitation that flows over the ground, particularly across impervious surfaces that prevent it from naturally soaking into the earth.Stormwater harvesting is the collection, accumulation, treatment or purification, and storing of stormwater for its eventual reuse. It differs from rainwater harvesting as the runoff is collected from drains or creeks, rather than roofs. The sediment–laden water collects contaminants, debris, chemicals, dirt and other pollutants that flow untreated into storm sewer systems or when sediment–laden water was discharged directly into local lakes, streams, wetlands and coastal waters.

CATCHMENT MANAGEMENT

  1. Catchment management solutions minimize the impact of flooding and water pollution thus protecting the environment.
  2. Disposal of Increased debris, sediment buildup at local, catchment, & national scales–limiting the environmental liabilities from construction sites, road projects and due to flooding.
  3. Integrated catchment management recognizes the existence of ecosystems and their role in supporting flora and fauna, providing services to human societies, and regulating the human environment.
  4. Planting Vegetation to Reduce Erosion and Storm Damage.
  5. Stormwater harvesting Sediment and contaminants

GROUNDWATER MODELING

The use of groundwater models for site remediation and ground–water hydrology assists local communities utilizing groundwater for their municipal drinking water supply systems in protecting their water sources. The Groundwater Modeling Program (GMP) has provided groundwater modeling support on a department–wide basis since 1980 when an EPA grant was used to fund the use of groundwater models for site remediation.

NANOFILTRATION

New study by MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) shows how nanoparticles can clean up environmental pollutants.

 Nanomaterials and UV light can trap chemicals for easy removal from soil and water.

REMOVAL from the water SOURCE

  • Heavy metals
  • Landfill Leachate
  • Nitrates
  • Pesticides
  • Wastewater recycling in laundries
  • Water softening

Erosion control categories

Numerous erosion control categories fall under this umbrella of water management, from sewage treatment to landslides/mudslides to Water Technologies to wetlands restoration. Comprehensive plans should call for reducing water runoff and curtailing stream bank erosion. We are all responsible for building a culture of safety.

 Soil contamination is an environmental concern and may lead to the more serious problem of groundwater contamination.

 These stormwater regulations also put a tighter lid on residents’ use of storm drains for disposing of paint, oil or other substances (moral imaginatiom) that could pollute waterways.

Wastewater is a major ecological problem, both for erosion and pollution that releases tonnes of toxic materials into streams that stress fish and wreaks havoc on ecosystems into which untreated stormwater travels on its way down to the aquifer.
