Spatial Patterns and Temporal Trends in the Water Quality of the Tuul River in Mongolia

The purpose of this research is to assess spatio-temporal variability of water quality determinands of the Tuul River in surrounding area of Ulaanbaatar city, Mongolia using an extensive dataset between 1998 and 2008. It presents the spatio-temporal assessment and seasonal pattern of 14 hydro-chemical determinants at 15 monitoring sites in the study area. According to the Mongolian water quality classification system, all sections of the Tuul River and its tributaries in the surrounding area of Ulaanbaatar city belong to moderately and heavily polluted waters due to high concentration of ammonium. In accordance with European Union water quality standard, the downstream section of the Tuul River fails. In order to change this situation, operation enhancement of wastewater treatment plants and artificial increment of dissolved oxygen concentration become crucial to improve the water quality significantly. Perhaps a new wastewatertreatment plant is needed for Ulaanbaatar city.

Water Quality Interventions to Prevent Diarrhoea: Cost and Cost-Effectiveness

This document makes a review of the effectiveness of water quality interventions to prevent diarrhoea. The analysis is based on cost information from 28 country programmes and computes the cost-effectiveness of conventional improvements of water quality at the source (well, borehole, communal stand post) and four interventions to improve water quality at the household level (chlorination, filtration, solar disinfection and combined flocculation/disinfection). It then employs the generalized cost-effectiveness analysis (CEA) methodology developed by the WHO under its CHOICE project in order to assess the cost-effectiveness of these interventions in 10 WHO epidemiological sub-regions with lower levels of improved water and sanitation coverage.
