Energy Efficiency in the Water Industry : A Compendium of Best Practices and Case Studies by M. J Brandt( Book )
5 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The objective of this research study is to development a compendium of best practice in the energy efficient design and operation of water industry assets. Through detailed examination of current best practice and technologies, the study has identified the promising development and future opportunities to help deliver: incremental improvements in energy efficiency through optimisation of existing assets and operations; more substantial improvements in energy efficiency from the adoption of a novel (but proven at full scale) technologies"--Executive summary

Post-project monitoring of BMPs/SUDS to determine performance and whole-life costs by Les Lampe( Book )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Over the past 20 years, the use of Best Management Practices (BMPs) in the United States has been instrumental in reducing both the detrimental impacts to receiving water quality and the exacerbated flooding caused by urbanization and storm water drainage. More recently, Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS) have started to be used in the United Kingdom. Both SUDS and BMPs attempt to mimic the drainage patterns of the natural watershed, and can also provide a degree of treatment needed to improve the quality of the water discharged to an acceptable level. The costs of conventional stormwater collection systems are determined primarily in terms of initial capital expenditure. Long-term maintenance costs are absorbed by stormwater authorities that are responsible for maintaining their infrastructure as part of their asset base. Currently, only a few of these responsibilities exist for BMPs and SUDS, which generally incorporate surface components and are often dependent on landscaping rather than on traditional construction techniques, but may require significant regular maintenance. Any potential adopting organization will require guidance on the maintenance regimes of different types of systems and how such regimes translate into long-term adoption costs. The project is being conducted in two phases. Phase 1, which is the subject of this report, includes a literature review and a survey of stormwater authorities and organizations in the US and UK to identify the most commonly used BMPs and SUDS and to determine the availability of data on their cost and performance. As part of Phase 2 , the operation of selected BMPs and SUDS will be monitored over a one-year period in terms of pollutant removal and hydrologic/hydraulic efficiency, and applicability of their design criteria and maintenance regime. The protocols developed in Phase 1 will be used to assess BMPs/SUDS performance and whole-life costs
