Cost-effectiveness of in-stream aeration to improve river water quality

V. Vandenberghe & P.A. Vanrolleghem
In this research the cost-effectiveness of in-stream aeration as a measure to improve river water quality is examined. Different processes are compared in terms of costs to be able to calculate the magnitude of the costs related to in-stream aeration. A dynamic QUAL2E river water quality model of the Dender river, implemented in ESWAT is used to simulate one-year time series of dissolved oxygen in the river. As the flow is very low during summer...
