RIVERBANK FILTRATION THESIS

RIVERBANK FILTRATION THESIS

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. This has been done with an emphasis on potential clogging effects of the suspended sediments carried by the highly turbid Cauca River on the riverbed. Aula, TU Delft – By: Theses will be available within a few weeks after the actual thesis defence. Natural infiltration rate recovery at low shear stresses was possible during simulated riverbank filtration tests with water consisting of a mixture of different sediments.

Riverbank filtration in highly turbid rivers. Field research in Colombia was executed to characterize the suspended particulate matter of a highly turbid river Cauca River to have seasonal information on the composition and particle size distribution, and then to have a starting point for the development of the laboratory studies. 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 other locations in Colombia with similar characteristics. 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. Natural infiltration rate recovery at low shear stresses was possible during simulated riverbank filtration tests with water consisting of a mixture of different sediments. Theses will be available within a few weeks after the actual thesis defence. Therefore, geophysical and geotechnical studies have been performed in the surroundings and riverbed samples have been taken and analyzed.

This research began because riverbnk 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. 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.

Thesis defence J.P. Gutiérrez Marín: riverbank filtration

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. The renewability of the infiltration capacity due to streambed and aquifer clogging and their opposite self-cleansing because of scouring forces was studied.

  THESIS UPLOADEN VU

Aula, TU Delft – By: 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. Therefore, geophysical and geotechnical studies have been performed in the surroundings and riverbed samples have been taken and analyzed.

Field research in Colombia was executed to characterize the suspended particulate matter of a highly turbid river Cauca River to have seasonal information on the composition and particle size distribution, and then to have a starting point for the development of the laboratory studies.

The RBF technology has not been proven yet in highly turbid waters, in which the excessive transport of suspended sediments threatens sustainable operation.
