Xiaohui Lei

Prof. Xiaohui Lei works at the China Institute of Water Resources and Hydropower Research. He is currently the leading expert in water resources allocation and scheduling in China. Over the past 10 years, he focused his work on the integrated regulation of multiple water projects. Prof. Lei solved a number of complex problems including uncertainty of hydrological forecasting, curse of dimensionality and multi-objectives of water resource scheduling, nonlinearity, and strong coupling of engineering control. Currently, he holds many university positions in China, including those at Hohai University, Taiyuan University of Technology, Chang’an University, etc. He is also the Chairman of Cascade Reservoirs and Water System Operations Working Group in the International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR), the Director of Water Cycle and Operation Specialized Committee in the Chinese National Committee on Large Dams (CHINCOLD), and Deputy Secretary General of Water Diversion Specialized Committee in the Chinese Hydraulic Engineering Society (CHES), etc.

The Middle Route of the South-to-North Water Diversion Project (MRP) is strategically important for China, and has made a great contribution to the sustainable development of society and economy in North China. Various potential risks of sudden water pollution accidents are distributed along the long canal, which may result in huge losses and endanger the safety of water supply. In order to provide technical support for emergent operations in the MRP, the emergency operation technologies for sudden water pollution accidents were developed. This book introduces these emergency operation technologies, including simulation technology for hydrodynamic and water quality in the main canal, traceability technology, emergency operations, and an emergency management system for sudden water pollution accidents.

This book is supported by the Major Science and Technology Program for Water Pollution Control and Treatment (2017ZX07108-001) and National Key R&D Program of China (2017YFC0406004).
