Irrigation – rediscovered heritage, its documentation, popularisation and protection based on the example of historical meadow irrigation systems
Irrigation systems were built and have operated mostly as part of a larger or
smaller functional complexes. Their significance, also from the point of view
from potential heritage protection, thus increases with the identification and
documentation not only of solitary structures but, in particular, of entire systems / functional complexes with descriptions of interrelationships between them. Independent objects or structures do not need to be particularly exceptional, although their involvement in the wider functional complex can create a uniquely undertaken solution. In the field of water management, criteria such as typological value, value of technological flow, authenticity of form and function, value of technological and systemic links with an overlap to agriculture and industry are especially important. This article provides information on possibilities of using traditional methods of historical and archive research and documentation of localities, and at the same time using modern tools for systems over a more extensive area, including methods of digitisation and processing of documentation.
Study of the effectiveness of the small municipal sourcess sewage sludge extensive stabilization for their use as a fertilizer
The article is devoted to the presentation of partial results of a study aimed at determining the potential use of extensive sludge dewatering technology for small municipal WWTPs (up to 1000 PE) in the conditions of the Czech Republic. The study has shown that the use of technology based on extensive sludge dewatering and their stabilization in sludge dewatering reed beds with suitable wetland vegetation can be an alternative to other technologies. Especially in combination with constructed wetland (CW) based WWTPs, which are characterized by lower sludge production.
Fidings from testing of selected biochemical products to the heritage sites water elements environment adjustment
The article is focus on the presentation of knowledge from testing of selected biochemical preparations for the treatment of the environment of water elements of historical gardens and parks and cultural monuments.
Joint Danube Survey 4 – the biggest international river expedition of the year is coming soon
In June 2019 on the Danube Day will start the biggest international river expedition of the year Joint Danube Survey 4 (JDS4). Joint Danube Surveys are organised by Secretariat of the the International Commission for the Protection of the Danube River (ICPDR) Three Joint Danube Surveys were previously conducted in 2001, 2007, and 2013.
Environment quality of water elements of heritage protected areas
Water elements represent a significant part of the environment of cultural heritage sites, conservation zones and areas. To fulfil the required functions, which may include social, historical, recreational and educational, but also environmental functions; it is necessary to ensure their corresponding target state.
Assessment of the relationship between water quality and functions of small water reservoirs
Small water reservoirs are one of the principal elements of agricultural landscape in the Central European context. The monitoring of the quality of aquatic environment of selected ponds and small reservoirs (SWR) in areas of southern and central Moravia and the Vysočina Region was carried out in 2013 to 2015.
Quality of sludges and wastes from household and small wastewater treatment plants and their utilization in agriculture management
The aim of this article is to introduce partial sections of the research projects TA02020128 and TA02021032 (Technology Agency of the Czech Republic). These parts of the projects pay attention to the issue of quality of sludge and other wastes produced in wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) using activated sludge process, anaerobic processes (including septics) and extensive (natural) wastewater treatment plants (with horizontal subsurface flow reed-beds), which also include mechanical pre-treatment.
