What’s In An Underdrain? More Than You Might Think
Media filtration is employed for a variety of treatment applications — drinking water, wastewater recycle/reuse, and pretreatment for desalination among them — but practitioners may be missing out on a key opportunity for savings.
Cooling Water Intake Decisions Are Heating Up
Now that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has issued its rule for cooling water intakes under Section 316(b) of the Clean Water Act, the race is on for more than 600 power plants and manufacturing facilities to comply. Right now, there is probably no better example in the water industry of how carefully choosing among compliance options can lead to millions of dollars in cost savings.

Triton Underdrains Receive NSF Standard 61 Certification For Drinking Water Components
Bilfinger Water Technologies announced that its Triton® Underdrains have received NSF/ANSI Standard 61 (NSF-61) certification for drinking water system components.
Behind The Screen: When Protecting MBRs, There’s More To Pre-Screening Technology Than Just Screens
There’s no doubt that effective pretreatment enhances the efficiency and effectiveness of a membrane bioreactor (MBR) plant — removing hair, fibers, and inorganic solids from influent at the very start creates benefits that resonate throughout the entire process. The heart of pretreatment is a good screen — but good screening technology goes well beyond the screen itself to include seals, cleaning mechanisms, and logic controls as well.

Everything Old Is New Again
As water treatment plant managers face relentless challenges — aging infrastructure, stricter watershed protection regulations, higher energy costs, growing water scarcity, and tighter budgets — solutions are emerging that blend computer-age technology with the tried-and-true practice of granular media filtration.

In California, Come Rain Or Shine, Upfront Efficiency Is Always In Style
Caught between a withering drought and floods from winter storms, California faces the worst of both worlds—dealing with scarcity as well as stormwater. America, and much of the world, is watching to see how this trendsetting state handles those challenges. After generations of setting America’s style, from cowboys to Beatniks to Beach Boys to Silicon Valley billionaires, California can set perhaps its most important trend yet—it can lead the way to a more water-efficient America. It has to. The good news is that it can. By Jim Lauria, Senior Vice Director-Water Treatment, Bilfinger Water Technologies

Looming In The Sewers: Nonwovens Are Weaving A Tangled Web
Looming in the world’s sewer system are contaminants of emerging concern. They’re not the endocrine disruptors, antibiotics or painkillers we’ve been reading about for the past several years (though those are indeed a challenge). These contaminants are bigger, and like the legendary alligators rumored to lurk in the New York City sewer system when I was a kid, they are growing steadily, day by day, to pose a catastrophic threat.
