Abstract

Fresh Water is a natural resource of fundamental importance without water, life is impossible. In many respects the properties of water are unique among all other liquids. As a solvent for organic and inorganic materials water has no parallel. When cooled below 4ͦ0c the density of water decreases till at 00c ice forms which is higher that water. It forms a solid crust over water surface. The aquatic life continues safely under the ice sheet. The extraordinarily high specific heat of water requires large amounts of energy or its withdrawal to raise or reduce its temperatures. The properties of water, therefore, seem to be especially designed for the living organisms. No other liquid can replace it[1]. THE CHALLENGE TO UTILITIES:As an operator of a water or waste water utility you have a lot on your plate. Not only are you required to provide reliable and affordable water and waste water services you must also be compliant with a number of government regulations and ensure that your operations are sustainable. Water utilizes require more efficient methods of engineering optimization of energy supply and contextualized compliance monitoring as they seek to expand availability of water to the general population of an affordable price[2].
