Impact Factor 0.98

Water Management publishes papers on all aspects of water treatment, water supply, river, wetland and catchment management, inland waterways and urban regeneration.

Topics covered: applied fluid dynamics and water (including supply, treatment and sewerage) and river engineering; together with the increasingly important fields of wetland and catchment management, groundwater and contaminated land, waterfront development and urban regeneration. The scope also covers hydroinformatics tools, risk and uncertainty methods, as well as environmental, social and economic issues relating to sustainable development.

  • Mixing zone regulation for effluent discharges into EU waters
    Author(s): Tobias Bleninger; Gerhard H. Jirka
  • - Hide Description
  • Environmental standards and their implementation in different countries are reviewed for point source discharges into surface waters. The paper focuses on the analysis of existing mixing zone regulations and recommends procedures to develop and manage mixing zone definitions as required by recent amendments of the ‘combined approach' of the European Community water framework directive. The review shows that only a few mixing zone regulations exist in the European Union member countries, and that some effluent types, such as desalination brine discharges, and some discharge technologies, such as river diffusers, are not yet considered. The paper discusses those two issues in detail. First, by analysing desalination plant discharge characteristics and recommending mixing zone regulations for such multi-component and multi-process discharges. Second, by presenting river diffuser discharge technologies and procedures for demonstrating compliance of discharges that employ these technologies.

  • An experimental study of turbulence in a heterogeneous channel
    Author(s): Michael Jesson; Mark Sterling; John Bridgeman
  • - Hide Description
  • This paper examines the velocity field in an idealised heterogeneous open channel during normal flow conditions, corresponding to two different subcritical flow conditions (discharges of 0·040 m3/s and 0·056 m3/s, with corresponding Froude numbers 0·51 and 0·57). The bed of the channel is formed of two full-length, longitudinal strips of equal width, a smooth section constructed from polyvinyl chloride and a rough section constructed from gravel (d 72 = 10 mm). The results indicate that the turbulence appears to propagate vertically from the rough bed and horizontally over the rough–smooth boundary. There is also evidence to suggest that the turbulent momentum transfer is maximised at the rough–smooth boundary. Secondary flow structures are seen to exist due to the rough–smooth boundary and provide another mechanism for momentum transfer. These transfer mechanisms are important in understanding the effect of a heterogeneous channel bed on open-channel flow.
