The Road To Smart City Infrastructure
By Jeff M. Miller, Water Solutions Architect, Schneider-Electric
Phones have now become smart phones, water has become smart water, and cities are now trending toward becoming smart cities, but what does all this mean, and how do we effectively make our water infrastructure smarter?


Phased Activated Sludge Solves Nitrogen Challenge
By Brandon Thomas, E.I.T., Sr. Application Engineer – Biological Processes and Membranes, Aqua-Aerobic Systems, Inc.
The Salisbury Township, Pennsylvania WWTP discharges into an unnamed tributary which leads into the Pequea Creek Watershed as part of the Susquehanna River Basin. Impairments of the local waterways have been attributed to excess nutrients, with the primary focus on phosphorus control. Ultimately, these waterways deliver into the Chesapeake Bay where treated wastewater is responsible for 22 percent of the phosphorus loading and 19 percent of the Nitrogen loading into the bay.

By ClearBlu Environmental
Anderson Valley Brewing Company had acquired several different aeration technologies in their treatment ponds over the years including surface aspirators and a diffuser system. They were interested in increasing treatment capacity so they could irrigate using reclaimed wastewater. After discovering ClearBlu and visiting an existing installation they decided to incrementally add UltraFine Bubble aerators to increase treatment.

Deep bed denitrification filters have proven to be an effective treatment technology. But cold water temperatures in more northern locales challenge the effectiveness of the denitrification process.
