Transcript of Water Harvesting

Introduction
Life won't be possible without water
Rainwater Harvesting
Objective
Cluster
Justification
Distribution System
Separators
Applications;
• Decreases the pollution load from streets
• Pre-treatment for storage and filters

Advantage
• Conventional tube connectors easy fit
• Comes armed to the site and ready for installation
Storage
Applications
• Control of excess rain
• Storage , infiltrate and reuse storm water

Advantage
• Rainwater infiltration
• Control and treatment of urban runoff
• It is located under areas where there is traffic, providing additional provision of free area,

Flow controller
Applications
• Flood prevention
• Flow control structures detention
• Capture and floating trash control
• Erosion control


Advantage
• Reduce storm water storage required by up to 40%
• Up to 50% savings on project cost
Maintenance free
Filters
Application:
•Commercial and industrial use
• Attaches "in line" with iron pipes, steel or plastic

Advantages
• High flow treatment
• High capacity on-stream
• Low cost

Seaweed use for wastewater treatment
Cluster development in the different areas that make up the country
The area selected for our cluster is Mexico City and Metropolitan Area.
Availability of resources in Mexico City
.For the rainwater system in Mexico is necessary to know where to place the system, we choose Mexico City to place it especially because in here we can find all the resources needed in the implementation of the system.

Main Goals

Resources needed
Captation Area: Place where rainwater runoffs are storage before their final disposition.
“seek to inspire in all peoples a sense of global interdependence and shared responsibility for the well-being of the human family, the greater community of life and future generations”.
Conduction system
It´s the set of gutters or pipes of different materials and shapes that lead the rainwater catchment to thee storage system.
Before of conducting the water to the storage tanks is recommendable to place a device which removes and filters all the possible pollutants that water could carry as it passes through the surfaces.
Pollutant removal
Storage tanks
Modular systems in which pluvial water is storage, they can be situated above or below grand.
In sum of the two, having a total of 24,026,942 inhabitants.
Mexico City has problems with lack of water in:
Iztapalapa,
Álvaro Obregón
,
Cuauhtémoc
, Benito Juarez,
Miguel Hidalgo,
Tláhuac , Tlalpan and Venustiano Carranza.
State of Mexico has problem with lack of water in:
Ocoyoacac , Huixquilucan , Naucalpan ,
Atizapán de Zaragoza,
Tlalnepantla.
1. Separate
2. Store.
3. Control
4. Filter
Focused in companies and business buildings
One clear example...
Car dealership operating since 2009
FIAT Tlalnepantla

Objective
Is the use and processing of nutrients to biomass, with subsequent production of oxygen.
Benefits Microalgae
- Power generation
- Improve sludge treatment
- Diminish contaminants wastewater.
Example
Advantages
- Enable the improvement of effluent quality.
- Low energy cost and utilization of nutrients.
Types of treatment systems
- Not aerated pool.
- Oxidation ponds: (30 to 60m).
- Ponds with high oxidation rate
- Oxidation algae ponds.

Case of Success
- SOLIX company (2009)
- Southwestern Colorado, U.S.
- 150,000 liters of microalgae cultivation.
