An Effective Method for Adsorption of Pb2 , Cd2 , and Cu2 from Wastewater by Using NaXZeolite-Derived from Coal Gangue

Hikmatullah Ahmadi, Yun Duan, Shakeel Hussain, Sadat Sayed Hafiz, Habibullah Sharifi, Sayed Sanaullah Habibi
A study was conducted to investigate the behavior and mechanics of NaXzeolite on the adsorption of (Pb2 , Cd2 , and Cu2 ) from simulated wastewater. NaXzeolite was synthesized from coal gangue by an Alkali-based hydrothermal process. A number of techniques have been employed to analyze the production of adsorbents, including X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy with X-ray energy analysis (SEM-EDX), Fourier transform infrared...

Risk Assessment of Drinking Water Using WSP for Azraq Spring-Jordan

Hassan T. Khrisat
Water Safety Plan (WSP) is considered as a collaborative approach dedicated to the risks of water impurity in a drinking water operating system, started at the catchment and finished at the end user, to protect people’s health. The aim of this study is to accomplish a WSP for the drinking water operation system of Azraq Spring. It is located in Fuhais in the northwestern part of Balqa, about 20 km west of Amman. The catchment area is 23.71 km2 and it has a perimeter of 20.42 km. Semi-...

Assessment of Physico-Chemical and Microbiological Quality of Drinking Water in Differet Upazilas of Noakhali District in Bangladesh

Md. Solayman Miah, Md. Ariful Islam*, Md. Tazul Islam, Md. Anwar Ul Alam, Supriya Ghosh, Marium Sultana
The name of water is called life. Providing safe drinking water is one of the momentous public health precedencies and the drinking water quality is closely associated with human health. The most important human well-being is affordable, abundant, and clean drinking water. This study has been conducted for assessing the drinking water quality of various locations in Noakhali. Total of nine water samples have been collected from three different locations (Sadar, Begumgonj, and Hatiya). Each sampl...

Effects of Oil Production on Groundwater Levels in Lokichar Basin, Turkana County, Kenya

Franklin Muchiri Gitari, Mary K. Makokha, Chris A. Shisanya, David Mbugua
Increased groundwater abstraction may lead to decline in water levels. This study investigated the effects of oil production on groundwater levels in Lokichar basin in Turkana County, Kenya. The specific objectives were to: 1) establish changes in groundwater demand and 2) determine borehole water levels in the study area. Water levels for two boreholes within the study area were recorded between 12th August and 11th September 2020. The Kenya Ministry of Water and Irrigation Design Manual guidel...

Trace Metals Evaluation of Groundwater in the Granito-Basaltic Fractured Rock Aquiferous Formations in Bafoussam, West Region—Cameroon

Jovens Nyangang Aduck, Agbor Ngale Ma-Effeti, Sharon Ntube Ngwese, Richard Ayuk II Akoachere
Bafoussam is situated between latitude 5.42N - 5.60N and longitude 10.38E - 10.48E, is the capital and largest city in the Western Region of Cameroon. Increased urbanization and agricultural activities have potentials for trace metal pollution of groundwater. As such, trace metals evaluation of groundwater in Bafoussam is among the most important environmental issues related to contamination from natural and anthropogenic sources. This study investigated the trace metal content of groundwater so...

The Review of Water Use Efficiency and Water Productivity Metrics and Their Role in Sustainable Water Resources Management

Dominico B. Kilemo
Our planet faces a challenge of producing food to meet the demand of current population which is projected to increase by the year 2050. This implies producing more food from the existing fresh water resources which are already stressed. This is because agriculture accounts for 70% global fresh water consumption; the rest is domestic and industrial use. Yet, water is unevenly distributed globally, causing some countries to be water-rich and others water-poor. Agricultural water management provid...
