Water quality modeling can provide an effective way to determine permissible waste load and predict consequences of different waste load allocation scenarios, while related uncertainty analysis can provide decision makers useful information regarding the potential risk in decision makings. For Lake Dianchi, the key management problem is to determine how the water quality would respond to the load reduction in the watershed. To support risk based decision making, an analytical response function was derived based on the numerical water quality model and was embedded into a Monte Carlo simulation as a surrogate of the time-consuming simulation model for computational efficiency. Two different levels of uncertainties, 5% and 10% stochastic variability, are considered in this analysis. The model results indicated that under the two uncertainty levels, the load reduction corresponding to Class III and V water quality targets are relatively safer with lower water quality violation risk. On the contrary, the load reduction corresponding to the Class IV water quality target is moderately risky that has higher probability of violating the corresponding water quality targets than the scenarios for Class III and V targets. The Monte Carlo simulation for Chlorophyll-a response showed that the reduction of nutrient can result in significant decrease in chlorophyll-a. However, there is still relatively higher risk of algal bloom even though the water quality target achieves the most aggressive Class III target in Lake Dianchi.

Under the current issues surrounding climate change, conserving water resources is becoming an increasing priority. As areas become stressed due to water exploitation or environmental pressures, the amount of water resources available for use have been decreasing (World Meteorological Organisation, 1999) and Europe has not been able to avoid these pressures. It is crucial to protect and improve water consumption to provide a sustainable practice for economic development and to maintain human settlements. LOWTEV will bring considerable water savings to the food industry which is comprised of over 230,000 SME organisations. With an excellent consortium with experts in the fields of food science and sanitisation we will develop a low water pressure ultrasound device integrated with an automated rapid hygiene monitoring system. By providing an alternative system for cleaning in place technology on bulk handling equipment for food processors, a factory site would benefit from at least a 10% savings in overall water use. This equates to an estimated 30,000 worth of savings on water and energy bills per factory, providing a return on investment in under 1 year of installation. The food industry sector within Europe lag behind in terms of innovation and R &D investment; this project will address the environmental issues to improve water resources and will also improve the competitiveness of the SME food processing and bulk handling communities. Through reducing the clean cycle times on conveyor equipment, this will realise more productivity within the food processing cycle by reducing the labour costs and times for cleaning.
