The project would construct a 11,000 horsepower gas compression station on 89 acres in the Sullivanville area of the Town of Veteran. The compression station would increase the flow of natural gas through roughly 200 miles of existing pipeline. The compressor itselft would be roughly 5 acres according to Dominion Spokesperson Frank Mack. The proposed project would sit less than a mile away from Sullivanville resident, Linda Finch. She says
The water surface area of all the Great Lakes is 95,000 square miles (245,759 square km). The largest surface area of freshwater in the world. This would cover an area about the size of the state of Oregon. The water volume of the Great Lakes is 5,500 cubic miles (22,809 cubic km), 90% of U.S. supply, 18% of
The Oroville dam was built in 1968, in California. It lies on the Feather River, east of the city Oroville. The dam has many important uses including; flood control, hydroelectric power generation, water shortage, and water quality improvement in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta. Lake supplies up to 4.2 million acre-feet of water a year, Oroville is the biggest reservoir in the State Water Project, both to farmers and more than 25 million Californians who depend on it for at least part of their water supply. The Association of State Dam Safety Officials estimates the cost of known needed maintenances for the country’s 2,000 deficient, high-hazard dams at $21 billion.
The powerful words, “We stand for our people, for our nation. We stand for our brothers and our sisters. We stand for water, for life”(Urban Native Era), are chanted by protesters as the fight against Energy Transfer and its construction of the Dakota access pipeline ensues. According to MSNBC, this $3.7 billion dollar project in the making is half completed and will run through four different states including, Iowa, Illinois, South Dakota and North Dakota. Essentially, the pipeline will be delivering 470,000 barrels of oil daily along the 1,100 mile stretch (NBC).
You asked the following question: “I have a 20 story building that has two zones for the standpipe system. If a standpipe system is designed per 7.2.2, does this mean it has two standpipe zones and if so, does the section 7.9 apply and more specifically 126.96.36.199 where it indicates that I need a high level water storage with additional pumping equipment?” In response to your question we have reviewed NFPA 14, 2007 edition that you indicated as the applicable standard. Our informal interpretation is that an auxiliary means for a water supply to the upper zone would apply when the demand exceeds the pumping capacity of the fire department pumper. Section 7.9.4 indicates for systems with two or more zones in which potions of the second and higher zones cannot be supplied using the residual pressure required by Section 7.8 by means of fire
from the Duffer’s Club. We have a given static pressure of 50 psi with a flow of 1000 GPM. The delivery rate needed is 750 GPM or 625 IGPM. A total of 1300 ft. of 4 inch high volume (13 lengths of 100 ft. hose) will be needed from the hydrant to the Clubhouse. To determine how many pumpers will be sufficient to supply the water, we need to find out the friction loss (FL) for each 100 ft. of high volume hose.
Dr. Shellen Wu’s article, titled The Search for Coal in the Age of Empires: Ferdinand von Richtofen’s Odyssey in China, 1860-1920, is about the movement from wood to coal as the leading fuel source all over the world in the late nineteenth century, and how geologist, Ferdinand von Richthofen, played a huge role in this discovery of coal as an abundant source of energy in China. The second sentence of the article clearly sums up Dr. Wu’s thesis. She states, “On the basis of his [Richthofen’s] travels over the next four years and seven expeditions, Richthofen coined the term Seidenstrasse (Silk Road); correctly hypothesized the origin of loess, the yellowish silt-like material covering much of North China; and described to the outside world vast deposits of coal in the Chinese interior.” Dr. Wu’s article goes along with the theme that we’ve discussed in class all semester, which is, “how have technological advancements throughout history
Sustainability and Responsibility report has given the general overview on increased in awareness of 30% and almost 60000 more women with empowerment programme under thriving communities. The annual report 2017 has discussed the issue of Carbon and water impact. Water is the major component in all the drinks produced by Diageo PLC accounting up to 95% in content. According to this report, Diageo PLC is now growing 80% of water in the barley and hops to make Guinness beer. Furthermore, the annual report has discussed the use of renewable energy, with India being the case, after the installation of solar power and the use of biomass fuel.
Osmotic power was first recognized in 1954 , when it was observed that the energy available from a river meeting the ocean is equivalent to that of a waterfall over 200 m high, or 0.66 kWh of energy per m3 of freshwater. This means that all over the world, where rivers meet oceans there is a potential for power production. The global potential for this power is estimated at 2.6 TW, enough to supply 20% of the world’s annual energy needs . Several processes for salinity gradient energy conversion have been proposed. Among the most developed is pressure retarded osmosis (PRO) .
In 1858, Queen Victoria sent a 99-word telegraph message to James Buchanan, the US President at the time. The message to James Buchanan took 16 hours to send across the Atlantic Ocean which had been laid with over 2,500 miles of telegraph wires. In a British History article, Victorian Technology, it states, “In 1866 Brunel’s huge ship, The Great Eastern, laid a durable telegraph cable across the Atlantic” (Victorian Technology). Eventually, there was telegraph wires worldwide. Britain constructed lines to India in 1870, and lines to Australia in 1872 via submarine.
