COVID-19 and the UK water sector: Exploring organizational responses through a resilience framework.

Water Environ J 2021 Jun 7. Epub 2021 Jun 7.

Centre for Water Systems University of Exeter Exeter UK.

The unprecedented scale and impact of the COVID-19 pandemic have required organizations to adapt all facets of their operations. The impact on the UK water sector extends beyond engineering and treatment processes, with social, economic and environmental consequences. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with executives from 10 UK water companies to investigate the organizational response to the pandemic, and how their response impacted operational delivery.

Functional resilience of activated sludge exposed to and bacteriophage MS2.

Water Environ J 2020 Dec;35(3):930-936

Department of Systems Engineering and Management, Air Force Institute of Technology, Dayton, OH, USA.

This study evaluated the effect of two biocontaminant surrogates on the activity and performance of activated sludge. In the presence of bacteriophage MS2 at 3.2 × 10 PFU/ml, the peak respiration rates varied between 9. Read More

COVID-19 and the water sector: understanding impact, preparedness and resilience in the UK through a sector-wide survey.

Water Environ J 2020 Oct 24. Epub 2020 Oct 24.

Centre for Water Systems University of Exeter Exeter UK.

The COVID-19 pandemic led to drastically altered working practices. During the UK lockdown, a questionnaire was distributed to water professionals to understand their experiences and perceptions of organisational response. Findings were evaluated on the measures of mitigation, adaptation, coping and learning. Read More

Remediation of suspended solids and turbidity by improved settling tank design in a small-scale, free-standing toilet system using recycled blackwater.

Water Environ J 2019 Feb 17;33(1):61-66. Epub 2018 Sep 17.

RTI International Research Triangle Park NC USA.

Our research is focused on the development of decentralized waste water treatment technologies enabling onsite water reuse. Accumulation of solids with recycling of treated blackwater increases the energy required for disinfection with an electrochemical process. We hypothesized that improving the preprocess settling of blackwater by increasing the tortuosity of the liquid flow path would reduce this energy demand by reducing particle-associated chemical oxygen demand (COD).

Generating Domain Terminologies using Root- and Rule-Based Terms.

J Wash Acad Sci 2018 ;104(4):31-78

Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA.

Motivated by the need for flexible, intuitive, reusable, and normalized terminology for guiding search and building ontologies, we present a general approach for generating sets of such terminologies from natural language documents. The terms that this approach generates are root- and rule-based terms, generated by a series of rules designed to be flexible, to evolve, and, perhaps most important, to protect against ambiguity and standardize semantically similar but syntactically distinct phrases to a normal form. This approach combines several linguistic and computational methods that can be automated with the help of training sets to quickly and consistently extract normalized terms. Read More

Electrochemical disinfection of repeatedly recycled blackwater in a free-standing, additive-free toilet.

Water Environ J 2017 11 23;31(4):545-551. Epub 2017 Jul 23.

RTI International Research Triangle Park NC USA.

Decentralized, energy-efficient waste water treatment technologies enabling water reuse are needed to sustainably address sanitation needs in water- and energy-scarce environments. Here, we describe the effects of repeated recycling of disinfected blackwater (as flush liquid) on the energy required to achieve full disinfection with an electrochemical process in a prototype toilet system. The recycled liquid rapidly reached a steady state with total solids reliably ranging between 0. Read More

Adolescent Vaccination Performance in South Carolina Compared to the United States.

J S C Med Assoc 2015 Dec-2016 Jan;111(4):117-21

National data on vaccine up-to-date (UTD) suggest that insufficient numbers of adolescents receive needed vaccines. This study analyzed public use data of the National Immunization Survey-Teen (NIS-Teen) from 2010 through 2013 for South Carolina (SC) adolescents and compared immunization rates to those of United States (US) adolescents. We also examined trends for each vaccine recommended for adolescents for both SC and US adolescents. Read More

Tropical Pyomyositis in a Temperate Climate.

J S C Med Assoc 2015 Dec-2016 Jan;111(4):137-8

In conclusion, our case highlights the unusual presentation of tropical pyomyositis in a temperate environment. It is important to consider this diagnosis in immunocompromised hosts, even in those with vague complaints such as muscle pain or erythema. The patient's immunocompromised state as well as the rarity of tropical pyomyositis outside of a tropical country led to a late diagnosis. Read More

Fatal Case of Recurrent Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy Presenting with Cardiac Arrest and Variable Ventricular Involvement What Role Beta Agonist and Beta Blockers?

J S C Med Assoc 2015 Dec-2016 Jan;111(4):127-30

In conclusion, we believe that the demise of the patient is due to the combination of severe emotional distress, respiratory distress with fear of impending doom, and the overuse of B2 agonists likely created an opportune environment for Takotsubo cardiomyopathy. We also propose a mechanism whereby recurrences with different wall motion variants may occur during beta blocker therapy. Read More
