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

Innovations en matière de gestion de l'eau d'alimentation et des eaux usées en milieu résidentiel : recyclage et réutilisaton des eaux usées, systèmes de citerne d'eaux pluviales et systèmes économiseurs d'eau by D. H Waller( Book )

6 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in French and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce rapport se veut une source d'information et de discussions sur les technologies novatrices en matière d'eau et d'eaux usées qui pourraient résoudre certains des problèmes d'infrastructures auxquels font face les municipalités canadiennes. Ces technologies comprennent la réutilisation et le recyclage des eaux usées, la conservation de l'eau, de même que l'utilisation des eaux pluviales comme nouvelle source. La section 2 passe en revue les situations au Canada qui pourraient bénéficier de l'application d'innovations dans le domaine de l'eau et des eaux usées. Les deux sections suivantes fournissent des exemples, tant au Canada qu'à l'étranger, de l'application de ces technologies. La section 3 porte sur des applications implantées dans des habitations individuelles et des collectifs d'habitation. La section 4 décrit des applications à l'échelle municipale. 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
Remediation of septic fields through flow reduction techniques by D. H Waller( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The objective of this study was to determine the impact of water conservation measures on a malfunctioning on-site wastewater disposal system, located at a 15 unit senior citizens complex"--Abstract, p. 4

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 G. M Charles( )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 8 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

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
