A substantial percentage of drinking water in the Netherlands is obtained as bank groundwater by pumping stations alongside rivers. Rising sea levels and lower river discharges caused by longer droughts and upstream water and groundwater use causes the salt water wedge to penetrate further upstream salinizing the river from time to time, especially near its bottom, thus causing intrusion of salt into the groundwater and affecting nearby drinking water wells. This situation was simulated in a cross section for a pumping station near Ridderker in the Netherlands to show what may happen. The exercise was carried out by Remko Nijzink, in preparation for his Geo2 exam at TUDelft, June 2011.
A team led by Stanford geophysicist Rosemary Knight performs an ambitious experiment to determine the extent of ocean saltwater intrusion into underground freshwater in the Monterey Bay region.
The basic exterior structure of your home is what we refer to as the “building envelope”. Every part of that envelope must have the builders attention if he is going make certain that the home performs efficiently, with great indoor air quality, and is creating the smallest possible carbon footprint. See all that goes into that in part two of this video.
The Building Enclosure Design Guide — Wood-Frame Multi-Unit Residential Buildings updates earlier best practice guides that have been instrumental in creating a consistent approach to the design and construction of effective building envelopes. This current Guide builds on previous work, including earlier editions published by the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC), and industry knowledge gained over the last decade: The Guide was developed by the Province in partnership with the Homeowner Protection Office (HPO) and in collaboration with an industry task group. The Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of BC (APEGBC) and the Architectural Institute of BC (AIBC) have endorsed the publication as an invaluable reference for the construction industry.

AAMA 501.2 is a Quality Assurance and Diagnostic Water Leakage Field Check of Installed Storefronts, Curtain Walls, and Sloped Glazing Systems. Our trained technicians use this test for QC and to find water leaks in new and existing buildings. Please visit tsienergysolutions.com or call 800-481-5748 to schedule an inspection.
