Supply of water resources by Muhammad Fahad Ansari 12IEEM14

  1. 1. Muhammad Fahad Ansari12IEEM14
  2. 2. Freshwater Readily accessible freshwater Groundwater Biota 0.592% 0.0001% Lakes 0.0007% Rivers 0.0001% 0.014% Ice caps Soiland glaciers moisture Atmospheric 0.592% 0.0005% water vapor 0.0001%
  3. 3.  Humans use about 54% of reliable runoff United States Agriculture Agriculture Power Industry cooling 38% 38% Domestic Power plants Industry 11% Public 10%
  4. 4. Flowing artesian well Precipitation Evaporation and transpiration Well requiring a pump EvaporationConfinedRecharge Area Runoff Aquifer Stream Infiltration Water table Lake Infiltration Unconfined aquifer Confined aquifer Less permeable material such as clay Confirming permeable rock layer
  5. 5.  Over the last century › Human population has increased 3x › Global water withdrawal has increased 7x › Per capita water withdrawal has increased 4x › About one-sixth of the world’s people don’t have easy access to safe water › Most water resources are owned by governments and are managed as publicly owned resources
  6. 6.  Dry climate Drought Desiccation Acute shortage Adequate supply Water stress Shortage Metropolitan regions with population greater than 1 million Fig. 15-6 p. 310
  7. 7.  A person needs about 1 gallon water/day for hydration In the US each person uses about 188 gallons/day An additional 657 gallons/person/day are used for irrigation, industrial use. Total per capita use is about 2000 gal/person/day If world’s water supply were 100 liters, the usable supply would be about 0.5 tsp US has highest per capita water withdrawal, followed by Canada, Australia, Russia, Japan
  8. 8.  Water table lowering Depletion Saltwater intrusion Chemical contamination Reduced stream flows
  9. 9.  >70,000 chemicals are used not; effects of many are not known Each year another 700-800 new chemicals are produced 55 million tons of hazardous chemical wastes are produced in the US each year The 20 most abundant compounds in groundwater at industrial waste disposal sites include TCE, benzene, vinyl chloride… all are carcinogens, and also affect liver, brain, and nervous system
  10. 10.  Inorganic Pollutants Organic Pollutants Biologic Pollutants
  11. 11.  In the western US, irrigation makes up 85% of all water use --50% to grow food for livestock -- 35% to grow cropsNot sustainable…cost of water is heavily subsidized by the federal government
  12. 12.  Three classes of compounds › Pesticides and Herbicides › Materials for common household and industrial use › Materials for industrial use
  13. 13.  Polychlorinated biphenyls 1940’s-1977: GE Congress banned production of PCB’s in 1979 b/c highly toxic to fish and mammals Striped bass in NY, Long Island—PCB’s>5 ppm; ban on commercial fishing; Great Lakes
  14. 14.  Number of colonies of fecal coliform bacteria Bacterial source tracking (BST) Measure biological oxygen demand (BOD) Chemical analysis Indicator species Genetic development of indicator organisms
  15. 15.  Major cause of infant deaths in third world Diarrhea kills 4-15 million children/year Bacteria, viruses, parasites Tables 12-9 and 12-10 from Holland and Peterson
  16. 16.  Point sources Nonpoint sources Water quality
  17. 17. NONPOINT SOURCES Rural homesUrban streets Cropland Animal feedlot Suburban POINT development SOURCES Factory Wastewater treatment plant Fig. 22-4 p. 494
  18. 18. Eutrophication Fig. 22-7 p. 499
  19. 19.  Low flow rates  Few bacteria Low oxygen  Cold temperatures Hazardous waste injection well PesticidesCoal strip De-icing Buried gasolinemine runoff road salt and solvent tank Pumping Cesspool well Gasoline septic tank station Waste lagoon Water pumping Sewer well Landfill Accidental Leakage from faulty spills casing ifer r aqu Discharge w ate esh i f er d fr aqu Confined aquifer fine a t er con hw Un res Groundwater df nfi ne flow Co
  20. 20.  Monitor aquifers  Find less hazardous substitutes Leak detection systems Strictly regulating hazardous waste disposal Store hazardous materials above ground
  21. 21. Fig. 22-11 p. 504
  22. 22.  Dumping industrial wastes off US coasts has stopped, but dredge products are legally dumped at 110 sites in Atlantic, Pacific, and Gulf Coasts US has banned dumping sewage sludge in ocean since 1992 50 countries rep ~80% of world’s shipping fleet have agreed not to dump sewage and garbage London Dumping Convention of 1972; 1994
  23. 23.  Sources: offshore wells, tankers, pipelines and storage tanks Effects: death of organisms, loss of animal insulation and buoyancy, smothering Significant economic impacts Mechanical cleanup methods: skimmers and blotters Chemical cleanup methods: coagulants and dispersing agents
  24. 24.  Non point source Septic tanks and sewers
