RIVERBANK FILTRATION THESIS

A combination of field and laboratory research was conducted during this research, supported by an extensive review of the literature to determine the feasibility of using the RBF for highly turbid sources. The RBF technology has not been proven yet in highly turbid waters, in which the excessive transport of suspended sediments threatens sustainable operation. Riverbank filtration in highly turbid rivers. RBF is a surface water filtration method for drinking water through the banks and bed of a river, using extraction wells located near the water body in order to ensure direct aquifer recharge.

Riverbank filtration in highly turbid rivers. The renewability of the infiltration capacity due to streambed and aquifer clogging and their opposite self-cleansing because of scouring forces was studied. Clogging of both the riverbed and deeper aquifer may increase flow resistance, reducing water revenues over the course of time.

  BRANDEIS THESIS REPOSITORY

The renewability of the infiltration capacity due to streambed and aquifer clogging and their opposite rivfrbank because of scouring forces was studied. Field research in Colombia was executed to characterize the suspended particulate matter of a highly turbid river Cauca River thessi have seasonal information on the composition and particle size distribution, and then to have a starting point for the development of the laboratory studies.

Clogging of both the riverbed and deeper aquifer may increase flow resistance, reducing water revenues over the course of time.

Thesis defence J.P. Gutiérrez Marín: riverbank filtration

RBF is a surface water filtration method for drinking water through the filtratiob and bed of a river, using extraction wells located near the water body in order to ensure direct aquifer recharge. Riverbank filtration in highly turbid rivers.

Natural infiltration rate recovery at low shear stresses was possible during simulated riverbank filtration tests with water consisting of a mixture of different sediments. The RBF technology has not been proven yet in highly turbid waters, in which the excessive transport of suspended sediments threatens sustainable operation.

The resulting information of this research has been applied for the development of the design of a large-scale horizontal collector well, which will be constructed in the city of Cali. In the pursuing of technical solutions, the riverbank filtration RBF has been considered as an alternative with a great potential to be applied in Cali, and many viltration locations in Colombia with similar characteristics.

riverbank filtration thesis

This research began because of the need to look for technological alternatives to solve the water supply crisis in my hometown, Cali, Colombia, due to turbidity peaks and contamination events.

Therefore, geophysical and geotechnical studies have been performed in the surroundings and riverbed samples have been taken and analyzed.

This has been done with an emphasis on potential clogging effects of the suspended sediments carried by the highly turbid Fhesis River on the riverbed.
