Water power development in the national forests. A suggested government policy

Proceedings of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers, 1908

In order to insure the supply of timber and to protect the water sheds and conserve the water of our mountain streams, the government some years ago adopted the policy of withdrawing large timber areas from entry by creating national forests. The preserves were to be operated by the forestry department for use and not for profit. Recently the government ...


The Rhine and its Underground Water Table: Environmental Problems: Transport Mechanisms of Pollutants: Chlorides

OCEANS '87, 1987

The Rhine, after the Volga and the Danube, the third European river, is one of the world water courses of medium importance. The impact of industrial activity can be seen, among other things, by the presence of chlorides in its water. This type of pollution affects a potential aquifer widely developed for the needs of communities, agriculture and industry. Investigations ...


Discussion on “electricity and the conservation of energy.” New York, March 24, 1909

Proceedings of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers, 1909

John Coffee Hays (by letter): In arousing public interest in the conservation of our natural resources the impression has been generally given in discussions and newspapers and magazine articles, that there was a very much larger waste going on than actually exists, and it would seem therefore that the time is now ripe for the engineers to discuss the different ...


Dissolved Methane Monitoring During a Well Control Problem at the West Venture Site, Winter 1984-85

OCEANS '87, 1987

This paper reports on the author's experience while monitoring dissolved methane in seawater during the West Venture well control problem in the winter of 1984-85. For six months the program provided daily reporting to the rig, for safety purposes, of methane in water concentrations. Log sheets, laboratory sheets, and reporting sheets are discussed. Problems of ship type and gear in ...

  • Water power development in the national forests. A suggested government policy

    In order to insure the supply of timber and to protect the water sheds and conserve the water of our mountain streams, the government some years ago adopted the policy of withdrawing large timber areas from entry by creating national forests. The preserves were to be operated by the forestry department for use and not for profit. Recently the government has given permits to companies proposing to make power developments on condition that the permits be revocable at the pleasure of the Secretary of the Interior, and that there be a conserving water royalty charge by the government on the power output of the plant.

  • The Rhine and its Underground Water Table: Environmental Problems: Transport Mechanisms of Pollutants: Chlorides

    The Rhine, after the Volga and the Danube, the third European river, is one of the world water courses of medium importance. The impact of industrial activity can be seen, among other things, by the presence of chlorides in its water. This type of pollution affects a potential aquifer widely developed for the needs of communities, agriculture and industry. Investigations have been carried out in order to provide information on the phenomenon.

  • Discussion on “electricity and the conservation of energy.” New York, March 24, 1909

    John Coffee Hays (by letter): In arousing public interest in the conservation of our natural resources the impression has been generally given in discussions and newspapers and magazine articles, that there was a very much larger waste going on than actually exists, and it would seem therefore that the time is now ripe for the engineers to discuss the different points of the question more in detail, and show what work has already been done in the direction of conservation, and what in their opinion should be done in the future toward the use of our resources in the most economical manner. From the very nature of the work, engineering is more closely connected with the conservation of resources than is any other profession, and the engineer should lend every effort in his power to the general education of the public in this respect, and should discuss the various points of the subject practically and forcibly in line with his convictions and experience.

  • Dissolved Methane Monitoring During a Well Control Problem at the West Venture Site, Winter 1984-85

    This paper reports on the author's experience while monitoring dissolved methane in seawater during the West Venture well control problem in the winter of 1984-85. For six months the program provided daily reporting to the rig, for safety purposes, of methane in water concentrations. Log sheets, laboratory sheets, and reporting sheets are discussed. Problems of ship type and gear in maintaining quality are noted. The effects of repetitive work and cold weather on mistakes and potential accidents are also discussed. There was a need for backup gear (in triplicate) due to cold weather, chloride corrosion problems and general dampness. Emergencies, such as personnel injuries and replacement of personnel, were encountered. In summation over 2,000 tests were undertaken, all with traceable quality assurance and quality centrol.

  • 'RadioRead on trial'

    Since 1990, Sensus has been involved in radio meter reading trials on both sides of the Atlantic. The Company's sole focus in the radio arena is the reading of water meters using this new technique. The aim of the trials is to explore the use of radio to read water meters in a wide variety of situations with the ultimate aim of adding the RadioRead product to its meter reading product line. RadioRead will ultimately be integrated with existing, highly successful reading systems such as TouchRead to extend customer choice and to provide flexibility in reading. RadioRead is compatible with encoded water meter technology pioneered by Sensus in the United States.<<ETX>>

  • NONREVENUE WATER

    Nonrevenue water (NRW) is a critical issue facing water utilities around the world. The UK approach to NRW management is based on achieving NRW reduction targets set by the regulator. Private water companies have incentives, such as increased returns to shareholders, related to achieving individual targets. A report by the World Bank defines NRW as 'the difference between the volume of water put into a water distribution system and the volume that is billed to customers'. NRW includes three primary components: unbilled authorized consumption, apparent losses, real losses. The four pillars to control real loss include: current annual real losses (CARL), economic level of leakage (ELL), unavoidable annual real losses (UARL) and four arrows representing how real losses occur. Improved leak detection practices correctly identify leaks within the distribution system, fixing the leaks, and prevent future water losses.

  • The water industry (automatic meter reading)

    Any AMR system must be self financing and should not increase the costs of metering. Systems should be able to develop as metering increases, there will be certain installations where the use of AMR systems will be most cost beneficial. The most appropriate system will need selecting based not just on the immediate needs but how the selected system will allow the reading system to evolve. Standards for the various interfaces will be extremely important to ensure compatibility of equipment and that a change of one part of the system does not reder the whole system redundant. The important point to remember is that the first priority of any AMR system is the reliable transfer of the reading and identity number from the meter to the billing system.<<ETX>>
