  • Robin Hayes United States of America Interesting information. Refreshed my memory on the different levels of how water with the different levels of soil, minerals, and rocks assist in managing healthy water. I have a B.S. In Healthcare Management and I am exploring as many aspect in healthcare as possible for a better quality of life for all. 2014-03-31 01:03:30
  • Leonard Mathemabe Botswana Course Module: Module 3: Groundwater and Surface Water Course Topic: Reservoirs Comment: The reservoir it is main objective is to stop surface run off water from inflitration and waste ,,its meant to harvest water for further use such as Hydro Power and for futher treatment for human consumption and moreso for irrigation,The Kariba Dam in Zambia generate power.An environmental assesment a must to be done to consult the community of the developments. 2013-06-13 15:06:21

  • Leonard Mathemabe Botswana Course Module: Module 3: Groundwater and Surface Water Course Topic: Water Infiltration Comment: Ground water is not poluted with any micro organism as compared to surface waters.Drilling water borehole is a major method of getting water from the ground.Drilling water depends depth on the parent rock and most of the run off water inflitrate up to certain depth and this will be depending on the type of soil in that particular area..Clay soil is slightly or partially or semi permeable because it has close soil particles than sandy soil with big and spacely particles.Drilling a borehole to get under ground water is avery tricky processes and water devining and prospecting it is a must,coz this is because many rocks contain pores, spaces that come in all shapes and sizes.Ground water can be collected as far as 1000meters depth or less than that. 2013-06-11 15:06:41

  • Leonard Mathemabe Botswana Course Module: Module 2: The Hydrological Cycle Course Topic: Surface Run-off and Percolation Comment: Surface water run off must be conserved by building dams and artificial lakes,this water is more hard and not palatable to human consumption.Only animals can because of their internal digestive system.The conserved water can be used for irrigation and act as waterfront for fish gaming.run off if not properly managed,it can cause severe damages to the environment as soil erosion and damaging roads and infrustructure. 2013-06-11 15:06:19

  • Okwera Alex Aniseto South Sudan Course Module: Module 6: Water Distribution Network Course Topic: Distribution Systems Comment: Good topic I enjoyed it, I was also expecting to see the calculation of water lost in the distribution system due to friction as water flows. 2013-06-11 14:06:57
  • Okwera Alex Aniseto South Sudan Course Module: Module 5: Water and Human Health Course Topic: Bioaccumulation of Mercury Comment: What are some important uses of mercury to human being and how is it extracted? 2013-06-10 15:06:18
  • Leonard Mathemabe Botswana Course Module: Module 2: The Hydrological Cycle Course Topic: Aquifers and Water Storage Comment: Water can be taken underground by means of drilling.The machine which are capable of drilling depth of 1000meters.Its normaly very hard and palatable and easly used for irrigation.Large lakes and stagnant rivers normaly the waters are not palatable,they have to go through vigoruos treatmant.During combustion in the vehicles engines,heat is generated at high tempreture,car exhaust has cahnnels which reduces sound and cools air and water is formed as it cools by the last channel called the silencer. 2013-06-06 13:06:52
