Definition of realistic disturbances as a crucial step during the assessment of resilience of natural wastewater treatment systems.

Abstract

Natural wastewater treatment systems (WWTSs) for urban areas in developing countries are subjected to large fluctuations in their inflow. This situation can result in a decreased treatment performance. The main aims of this paper are to introduce resilience as a performance indicator for natural WWTSs and to propose a methodology for the identification and… (More)
