  • Endocrine Disrupting Compounds And Their Treatment
    Endocrine Disrupting Compounds And Their Treatment

    Endocrine disrupting compounds (EDC) are a subset of chemicals identified as contaminants of emerging concern, or “CECs.” EDCs are chemicals that can affect the endocrine (hormonal) systems of humans and animals. Hormones regulate reproduction, growth, and behavior. Anything that can potentially disrupt those functions must be studied carefully.

    Meeting WHO Standards For Cryptosporidium With UV In Singapore

    Johor River Waterworks (JRWW) is located in Kotta Tinggi, Malaysia approximately 60 km north of Singapore. Under a water agreement with the Malaysian government, the Singapore government signed a 50 year agreement with the Public Utilities Board (PUB) to build, upgrade and operate the plant on the Johor River until the year 2050. Plants A and B were built between 1986 and 1999 and Plant C was constructed in 2001. With a combined capacity of 946 million liters per day (250 US MGD), the treated water is piped to Singapore and provides about 40% of the water for a population of 5.3 million people.

    High-Power UV Lamps Lower Replacement Costs, Reduce Maintenance

    The Tesla Water Treatment Facility is located in Tracy California approximately 60 miles west of San Francisco in the Central Valley of California. Since 1934, San Francisco has received water from the Hetch Hetchy Reservoir in Yosemite National Park via the 167 mile long Hetch Hetchy Aqueduct. Due to the pristine nature of the water source, the water is unfiltered and was only chlorinated at the 75 year old Tesla Portal facility.

  • Using Granular Activated Carbon To Meet DBP Regulations
    Using Granular Activated Carbon To Meet DBP Regulations

    The Roche Harbor Water Treatment Plant is located on the northwest side of San Juan Island in San Juan County, Washington state. Although a significant part of the land in the county is privately owned, the watersheds there provide a public benefit for both residents and visitors.  San Juan Island’s economy is tourist-driven; the island was voted #2 on the New York Times list of “41 Places to go in 2011.” Its marina has been a top boating destination for more than fifty years. Incorporated in 1886, the community has seen slow but steady population growth in recent decades. Roche Harbor Water System Inc. has been in operation since 1968 when PVC piping replaced the island’s existing wooden pipe system.

  • UV Experience For Inactivating Cryptosporidium In Surface Water Plants
    UV Experience For Inactivating Cryptosporidium In Surface Water Plants

    The disinfection of pathogenic microbes in drinking water has been successful over the last century largely due to the use of chlorination. However, research conducted in the 1970’s revealed that by-products formed during the chlorination process are potentially carcinogenic. Since then, drinking water regulators have struggled within the confines of technological and economic limitations to find a balance between the benefits of chlorination and its harmful side effects.

  • Carbon Adsorption And Reactivation: Turning Obligation Into Opportunity
    Carbon Adsorption And Reactivation: Turning Obligation Into Opportunity

    Chemical, petrochemical, and oil-refining plants are process-intensive operations with regulatory requirements to protect the surrounding water and air from the effects of industrial pollution. These external demands are matched by equally compelling internal pressures to address product purification needs, find alternatives to utilizing costly and often scarce fresh water in production processes, reduce the carbon footprint, and operate efficiently and profitably.
