Public participation in science : The future and value of citizen science in the drinking water research

Amsterdam - Citizen science - Drinking water quality - Knowledge generation - Participation
This paper explores the value of involving citizens in the generation of knowledge in drinking water research. To this end, the significance of the 'Freshness of Water' citizen science project on the microbiological stability of drinking water was analyzed, supplemented with a series of expert interviews. In this project, citizens of Amsterdam participated in taking samples from their own kitchen tap and testing the water using test strips. The subsequent monitoring of bacteria revealed that the total number of bacterial species in all of the Amsterdam drinking water samples was high. For the participants, the presence of ten thousands of bacterial species in their drinking water, as well as the interpretation that this is perfectly normal and not a health concern, was obviously new. However, instead of causing concern or worry, this transparency clearly functioned as a strong confidence-inducing signal. A majority of the citizen scientists state that, as a result of their participation, their confidence in the quality of drinking water and the water company has increased. This study suggests that citizen science can raise the participant's water awareness and that, with the appropriate support, non-professionals can make a valuable contribution to scientific drinking water research.
Enhanced Performance of the Eurostat Method for Comprehensive Assessment of Urban Metabolism : A Material Flow Analysis of Amsterdam

Amsterdam - Circular economy - Industrial ecology - Resource management - Sustainable city - Urban planning
Sustainable urban resource management depends essentially on a sound understanding of a city's resource flows. One established method for analyzing the urban metabolism (UM) is the Eurostat material flow analysis (MFA). However, for a comprehensive assessment of the UM, this method has its limitations. It does not account for all relevant resource flows, such as locally sourced resources, and it does not differentiate between flows that are associated with the city's resource consumption and resources that only pass through the city. This research sought to gain insights into the UM of Amsterdam by performing an MFA employing the Eurostat method. Modifications to that method were made to enhance its performance for comprehensive UM analyses. A case study of Amsterdam for the year 2012 was conducted and the results of the Eurostat and the modified Eurostat method were compared. The results show that Amsterdam's metabolism is dominated by water flows and by port-related throughput of fossil fuels. The modified Eurostat method provides a deeper understanding of the UM than the urban Eurostat MFA attributed to three major benefits of the proposed modifications. First, the MFA presents a more complete image of the flows in the UM. Second, the modified resource classification presents findings in more detail. Third, explicating throughput flows yields a much-improved insight into the nature of a city's imports, exports, and stock. Overall, these advancements provide a deeper understanding of the UM and make the MFA method more useful for sustainable urban resource management.
Stadsranden; rood én groen; een inrichtingsconcept ontwikkeld aan de hand van de noordelijke Randstad

Op het raakvlak van stad en land bevindt zich een gebied waarin vele, zowel rode als groene, processen een rol spelen. Binnen het huidige voorgestelde beleid op het gebied van ruimtelijke ordening, in de vorm van de Vijfde Nota Ruimtelijke Ordening enhet concept stedelijke netwerken, wordt echter geen aandacht besteed aan hoe vorm zou moeten worden gegeven aan dit gebied. Een uitwerking van het beleid op een laag schaalniveau ontbreekt. Hoe zou de stadsrand vorm gegeven kunnen worden om ruimtelijke kwaliteit, zoals deze tot doel gesteld wordt in de Vijfde Nota Ruimtelijke Ordening, te waarborgen of waar mogelijk te verbeteren? Een inrichtingsconcept stadsranden in dienst van de samenleving geeft hier een mogelijke oplossing voor.

De groennorm die in dit onderzoek wordt getoetst is de groennorm van het Beoordelingskader Groen in de Stad. Sinds de jaren zestig zijn verschillende groennormen gehanteerd. Sommige van deze normen komen uit de hoek van de recreatie en natuur, andere uit de huisvestingssfeer. Deze studie is in het kader van GIOS uitgevoerd
