Water and Wastewater Engineering
Water and Wastewater Engineering involves the entire water-cycle, from sourcing drinking water supplies in upland areas to treating and discharging wastewater resulting from urban and industrial activities.
Engineers and environmental organizations work together in their attempts to manage the use of water resources, while maintaining appropriate levels of environmental protection. A very complex job indeed, but one in which CFD can play a crucial role in developing optimal solutions.
The diverse needs of different stakeholders can produce a complex web of regulation that involves water and constituents carried with it on its journey from source to sea. Sediments, nutrients, and dissolved and adsorbed elements present different problems to different groups and agencies, however, a knowledge of the way in which the transport medium (water) moves is common to all.
Understanding the function of individual components of a water or wastewater engineering project enables Blue Hill Hydraulics to develop innovative designs and to improve the performance of existing systems at a minimum cost.
As consumers become more aware of the environmental impact of their activities, water utilities and suppliers need to take better advantage of the wide range of technological solutions designed to maintain an effective balance between cost to the consumer and benefit to the environment. Providing an increased confidence in system operation and maximizing system performance reduces waste and delivers improved environmental quality.
