Innovative residential water and wastewater management : wastewater recycling and reuse, rainwater cistern systems, and water conservation by D. H Waller( Book )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this report is to increase awareness of, and provide information about, three technologies that have the potential to address water & wastewater problems facing many communities: wastewater recycling & reuse, rainwater cistern systems, and water conservation. Section 1 provides background to the project and reviews terminology related to water reclamation, recycling, and reuse. Section 2 identifies areas & situations in Canada that might benefit from use of the technologies discussed. These include areas of low precipitation or limited groundwater, contaminated groundwater, overloaded water & wastewater systems, and construction moratoriums in areas with inadequate infrastructure. Section 3 provides examples and references of innovative on-site systems, with an emphasis on recycling & reuse in residential & other single buildings. The examples include 17 case studies and 15 treatment components or systems. Section 4 contains examples of municipal innovations in water & wastewater management, mostly relating to wastewater reuse for non-potable purposes such as irrigation, or dual municipal systems for delivery of potable and non-potable water. Section 5 draws on many recent references to review issues, obstacles, and opportunities related to wastewater recycling & reuse

Case studies of potential applications of innovative residential water and wastewater technologies /cby D.H. Waller, M.A. Salah by D. H Waller( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study describes a project to identify opportunities for use of innovative systems for water supply & conservation, wastewater recycling & reuse, and rainwater cistern systems in residential buildings. Five case studies are used to compare traditional servicing alternatives with all or part of the alternative technologies considered: a new urban development serviced by central water & wastewater systems; a new non-urban development with on-site services; an existing non-urban area where new wells, new on-site systems, and a cluster system are proposed to replace failing on-site systems and contaminated wells; a new non-urban development served with public water & on-site wastewater systems; and a community where a central sewerage system has been proposed to replace failing on-site systems. The conventional & innovative systems are compared in terms of dollar costs and intangible costs & benefits. The next section summarizes issues other than costs (technological, management, regulatory, public, & political) that may have to be addressed when use of the innovative systems is considered. The final section makes recommendations regarding strategies & actions that can take advantage of opportunities, and address problems & issues, identified in the report

La section 5 traite des enjeux relatifs à l'étude et à la sélection de ces technologies
Evaluating the performance of on-site sewage disposal systems by D. H Waller( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Evaluates a field test procedure used to assess the hydraulic capacity of soil absorption systems used for on-site sewage disposal. The procedure is applicable to those situations where system failure is defined in terms of inadequate capacity of the disposal system and host soil to accept the septic tank effluent without surface ponding. The object of the reported project was to: document experience with the test by site visits and a literature review; apply and evaluate the test under field conditions in Nova Scotia; and evaluate the test using a spreadsheet water balance model. Field test results are presented for three test sites. The conclusions, based on the field test results, outline the applicability of the test. The appendix includes a description of the test procedure
The Use of rainwater for domestic purposes in Nova Scotia by D. H Waller( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In many rural communities in Nova Scotia, adequate groundwater or treated piped-in supplies of potable water are not available. The collection of rainwater from the roofs of buildings may be the only or best alternative to supply household demands. This is especially true in areas where dug wells have an insufficient yield and drilled wells contain elevated levels of contaminants such as arsenic, sulfates or chlorides. These guidelines are intended to aid in the design of rainwater cistern systems to provide water supplies of adequate quality and quantity and to make this technology available to potential users of cistern systems in Nova Scotia
Pollution attributable to surface runoff and over flows from combined sewerage systems by D. H Waller( Book )

5 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Report on a two-year study (1969-1971) in Halifax, N.S., the objective of which was to provide information about pollutional characteristics of combined sewage and urban surface runoff, about variations of these characteristics with hydrologic parameters, and about methods of treatment of combined sewage & surface runoff. It was hoped such information would contribute to soundly based decisions about effective allocation of public funds for control of pollution attributable to overflows from combined sewage systems
Technical impediments to use of the existing on-site sewage system of a host house to service a garden suite on the same property : report to Canada Housing and Mortgage Corporation by Terry W Hennigar( Book )

4 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A garden suite is a small self-contained house placed on the same lot as the home of a close family member. It is designed to be relocatable so it can be reused when necessary. If the garden suite is located on a property serviced by an on-site sewage disposal (septic tank) system it is considered cost-effective, and therefore desirable, to connect it to the existing on-site system. The alternatives are to provide a separate system or to disallow the installation. This project identified and addressed concerns of regulatory officials in Atlantic Canada about technical impediments to use of the existing on-site system of a host house to service a garden suit on the same property. The project included interviews with responsible officials in each of the four Atlantic provinces to document technical concerns and assessments of the results of the interviews and of reference material and the technical literature

Long term performance of contour trench systems for subsurface disposal of septic tank effluent from multiple dwellings by Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation( Book )

4 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An experimental contour trench system for subsurface disposal of septic tank effluent from a group of dwellings was installed at Port Maitland in southwestern Nova Scotia in 1982 because of failing individual septic systems. A contour trench disposal field is a relatively narrow and shallow disposal bed constructed in a trench of constant depth, dug along a contour of the ground surface, such that the trench bottom and the lip of the trench wall are absolutely horizontal throughout the entire length. The Port Maitland system was originally monitored from 1982-84, then the site was revisited and monitored from May 1989 to June 1990 to assess the long-term hydraulic and treatment performance of the system. Piezometer nests remaining from the original study were re-used. Samples were collected, and groundwater depths observed, on seven occasions. Analyses were conducted for bacteriological and chemical parameters

Remote monitoring and control of on-site wastewater treatment, recycling, and reuse systems( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Current and potential applications of remote monitoring and control include: conventional on-site systems, which have no mechanical or electrical components, provide treatment in a septic tank, possibly in a sand filter, and in native soil, discharge treated effluent to groundwater, and require minimal maintenance and no control; on-site systems for more difficult lot conditions, which can also include pumps and additional treatment components, may include more sophisticated systems for subsurface disposal, or use surface disposal, and require additional maintenance and control; recycling and reuse systems, which are being developed and applied in situations where the water demand, and the quantity and quality of effluent for on-site disposal, are important issues, and include treatment components that require performance monitoring and control. Even the simplest of these systems, if not properly used and maintained, can fail, and more complex systems cannot be expected to operate reliably and effectively without periodic or continuous monitoring and control. Examples of a variety of sensing, recording, monitoring, and communication technologies that have been applied to such systems have been described in papers, reports, and commercial publications. But no single non-commercial document exists to guide planners, designers, managers, and regulators as to the capabilities, limitations, opportunities, and benefits associated with options for remote monitoring and control of systems for on-site wastewater treatment, recycling, and reuse. This report is intended to address that need. This report includes consideration of: Systems and system components currently in use, and alternatives presented by new and emerging technologies. Systems appropriate to a single on-site wastewater system, and those suitable for a network of many on-site units. Systems appropriate for a range of systems from simple passive conventional on-site systems to complex recycling and reuse systems. The report begins with an overview of the role of remote monitoring and control in the management of on-site treatment, recycling, and reuse systems. It continues with an introduction to the fundamentals of remote monitoring and control and a review of system operating and water quality parameters that are, or could be, the subject of remote monitoring and control. This discussion is followed by case studies developed in consultation with individuals and organizations with responsibilities related to the case study systems. Appendices provide additional information about products and product sources
Long term performance of contour trench systems for subsurface disposal of septic tank effluent from multiple dwellings by G. M Charles( Book )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An experimental contour trench system for subsurface disposal of septic tank effluent from a group of dwellings was installed at Port Maitland in southwestern Nova Scotia in 1982, in order to address the problem of failing individual septic systems in the community. The Port Maitland system was originally monitored between 1982 to 1984. The site was revisited and monitored from May of 1989 to June of 1990 to assess the long-term hydraulic and treatment performance of the system. Piezometer nests remaining from the original study were re-used. Samples were collected, and groundwater depths observed on seven occasions. Analyses were conducted for bacteriological and chemical parameters. The findings show that chemical concentrations of contaminants were reduced to background levels within 9m of the contour trench. There was no apparent increase in the transport distance between 1984 and 1990
