  • Prospects and Challenges of Water Management Stakeholders in the Rural
           Communities of the Noun Division, West Region, Cameroon

    • Authors: Dereck Mbeh Petiangma; Kometa Sunday Shende, Niba Mary Fonteh
      Abstract: Seven years after the formulation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), uncertainty looms on whether the 2030 targets would be achieved. In the Noun Division of Cameroon diverse stakeholders have made substantial efforts to meet the 2030 SDG on the provision of portable water to the rural communities. Despite these laudable efforts, access to portable water remains a topical issue in the Division. The focus of this study was to assess the prospects and challenges of water management stakeholders in the provision of portable water to the rural communities of the Noun Division. In order to meet this objective, a total of 400 questionnaires were randomly administered to household heads in rural councils with the help of traditional authorities. International, national, regional and local stakeholders involved in the management of water resources were interviewed. The “17 in 1” and “iQ. BAC” water test kits were respectively used to analyse the chemical properties of drinking water sources in situ and faecal content within 48 hours. Descriptive and inferential statistical techniques were used to analyse quantitative data while content and narrative analysis were used for qualitative data. Findings revealed that local, national and international portable water management stakeholders prioritised the improvement of portable water sources over other parameters. Whereas the proportion of people who depended on unimproved water sources reduced from 79.92% in 2015 to 57.52% in 2022, that with mean round trip time of over 30 minutes rather increased from 49.62% to 50.38%. Moreover, 50% of the interviewee indicated that portable water is expensive in the area, suggesting why 42.3% of the population still rely on streams today. Five sampled streams analysed with the iQ. BAC test kit tested positive for total coliform while confirmatory laboratory analysis revealed E. coli concentration of 11-100MPN/100ml in Njimom which according to WHO is synonymous to medium risk. The “17 in 1” test kit revealed abnormal concentration of lead (0.03-0.05 ppm) and sulphate (400-800 ppm) mainly in streams and boreholes. PCA identified five main components that account for 72.71% variance in the hydrochemistry of drinking water sources. Though, none of the four scenarios developed revealed complete access to improve drinking water in rural areas of the Noun Division by 2030, Njimom and Foumbot showed remarkable progress under the most probable scenario (50% increase in current effort) considered to be the most realistic. Water governance stakeholders should quadruple their current efforts in improving portable water sources and adopt a holistic approach that engulfs water quality improvement if they wish to make significant progress on SDG 6.1.

  • Possibilities of Using Floating Solar Photovoltaic Panels on Water
           Reservoirs in the Island of Crete, Greece

    • Authors: John Vourdoubas
      Abstract: Solar photovoltaic electricity generation is important for the energy transition to net zero carbon economy in the coming decades. The aim of the current research is the investigation of the possibilities of installing floating solar photovoltaic panels on the surface of water reservoirs in the island of Crete, Greece. Solar photovoltaic electricity is currently generated in Crete while the solar panels are installed either on the fields or on the rooftop of buildings. Few natural water reservoirs exist in the island while many man-made dams have been constructed to store water and use it for irrigation and drinking purposes. Installation of floating solar panels on the surface of Potamon dam and Aposelemis dam in Crete could generate significant amounts of green electricity. Additionally, it could result in water savings due to lower water evaporation from the dams while more land area will be available for cultivation. Installation of floating solar panels in the two above-mentioned water dams with coverage ratio 10% could generate 252.77 GWhel/year corresponding at 8.3% of the annual electricity generation in Crete while 2.88 mil. m3/year of water could be saved. When the coverage ratio in the two dams is at 30% the annual electricity generation could be at 758.31 GWhel/year corresponding at 24.9% of the annual electricity generation in Crete while 8.64 mil. m3/year of water could be saved. Our results indicate that floating solar panels is a promising alternative technology to ground-mounted solar-PV panels for “solar electricity” generation in Crete.

  • Determination of Heavy Metals in Black Sea Whiting Fish (Merlangius
           merlangus, Linnaeus, 1758) Species

    • Authors: Oylum Gokkurt Baki1; Birol Baki
      Abstract: The Black Sea is surrounded by numerous industrial and agricultural areas. Therefore, many land-based pollutants are released into the Black Sea. Discharge of industrial and agricultural untreated wastewater to the Black Sea from a single source or scattered sources has been reported.The current study aimed to determine the concentration values of some heavy metals in the tissues of whiting fish (Merlangius merlangus, Linnaeus, 1758), one of the economical demersal species of the Black Sea. Accordingly, the accumulation concentrations of heavy metals including manganese (Mn), cobalt (Co), copper (Cu), zinc (Zn), and iron (Fe) were investigated in muscle tissue, gill, gonad, liver, and other visceral organs (except liver) in whiting fish samples.Heavy metal concentrations determined in the muscle tissue, which are particularly important for human consumption and health were sorted as Fe>Zn>Cu>Co>Mn and the concentration values of metals were 82.84±7.11; 50.45±12.24; <0.818; <0.479; <0.413 µ, respectively. Zn had the highest concentration in gonad tissues whereas the highest concentration determined in the liver, visceral organs, and gills was Fe. As a result of the comparison of heavy metal results obtained in the muscle tissues with the relevant standards (FAO, 2010 and FAO/WHO, 2004), it was found that they were below the risky limit values for human consumption.
