ISO 24510:2007

Activities relating to drinking water and wastewater services - Guidelines for the assessment and for the improvement of the service to users

ISO 24510:2007 specifies the elements of drinking water and wastewater services of relevance and interest to users. It also provides guidance on how to identify users' needs and expectations and how to assess whether they are being met. The following are within the scope of ISO 24510:2007: the definition of a language common to the different stakeholders; the definition of key elements and characteristics of the service to users; the objectives for the service with respect to users' needs and expectations; guidelines for satisfying users' needs and expectations; service to users assessment criteria; introduction to performance indicators; examples of performance indicators.


ISO 24511:2007

Activities relating to drinking water and wastewater services - Guidelines for the management of wastewater utilities and for the assessment of wastewater services

ISO 24511:2007 provides guidelines for the management of wastewater utilities and for the assessment of wastewater services. ISO 24511:2007 is applicable to publicly and privately owned and operated wastewater utilities, but does not favour any particular ownership or operational model. ISO 24511:2007 addresses wastewater systems in their entirety and is applicable to systems at any level of development (e.g. pit latrines, on-site systems, networks, treatment facilities). The following are within the scope of ISO 24511:2007: the definition of a language common to different stakeholders; objectives for the wastewater utility; guidelines for the management of wastewater utilities; service assessment criteria and related examples of performance indicators, all without setting any target values or thresholds.


AWWA M19-2001

This manual offers guidance and tools for water and wastewater managers in preparing for either natural or human-caused emergencies.


ANSI/ASCE/EWRI 56-10 57-10

Guidelines for the Physical Security of Water Utilities (ANSI/ASCE/EWRI 56-10); Guidelines for the Physical Security of Wastewater/Stormwater Utilities (ANSI/ASCE/EWRI 57-10)

Standards ASCE/EWRI 56-10 and 57-10 offer guidelines that apply to the physical security of facilities with potable water source, treatment, and distribution systems, as well as with wastewater collection and treatment systems and stormwater systems.


AWWA J100-2010 (R2013)

Risk and Resilience Management of Water and Wastewater Systems

AWWA and ASME Innovative Technologies Institute (ASME-ITI) have developed the first voluntary consensus standard encompassing an all-hazards risk and resilience management process for use specifically by water and wastewater utilities. The standard received final clearance from the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) in May 2010 and is effective July 1, 2010.

ASTM E2728-11

Standard Guide for Water Stewardship in the Design, Construction, and Operation of Buildings

1.1 This guide is intended to inform sustainable development in the building industry. It outlines ideal sustainability and applied sustainability for water management, consistent with Guide E2432 . Both ideal sustainability and applied sustainability should inform decisions regarding water management. 1.1.1 Ideal sustainability is patterned on the hydrological cycle. This provides the concept goals and direction for continual improvement. 1.1.2 Applied sustainability outlines current best practices. This identifies available options considering environmental, economic, and social opportunities and challenges. The most appropriate option(s) are likely to vary depending on the location of the project. 1.2 Water management challenges differ enormously depending on the type of built environment and the available water resources. 1.2.1 The general demands of the built environment vary from very low density rural development to crowded urban development. Large cities present a particular challenge, with 400 cities worldwide housing over 1 million inhabitants. 1.2.2 Successfully meeting the challenges of uneven distribution of water around the world, depletion of groundwater, changing rainfall patterns, and other water industry trends requires sustainable solutions for the effective management of the entire water cycle. 1.2.3 Sustainable design, construction, and operation of water and wastewater services for the built environment are critical components of water stewardship and global sustainable water management. 1.3 Water stewardship encompasses both pollution prevention (quality issues) and conservation (quantity issues). 1.4 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard. 1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and to determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.


ASCE MOP 49-1986

Urban Planning Guide

More than any other profession, civil engineers are concerned with infrastructure, the fabric of urban life. Planning for maintenance and expansion of the nation's infrastructure is the subject of this book. The focus of this manual is the practical use of planning tools to solve real life problems. It provides the reader with a broad overview of the planning process and what factors or issues are of particular concern. The first three chapters deal with planning and the planning process in general, describing the process that any planning study must follow from data collection to implementation. The rest of the book covers urban planning in specific areas including land use, housing, urban transportation, intercity highways, airports, railroads, ports, community services facilities, water resources, parks, wastewater management, solid wastes management, energy, environment, and capital improvement programs.
