  1. Intensification Concept At Wastewater Plants Explained

    Carollo Engineers, an environmental engineering firm that specializes solely on the planning, design, and construction of water and wastewater facilities has identified five major trends in the industry.

  2. Water Regulations Change As Data Accuracy Intensifies

    It makes sense that water regulations are written in line with the available means to detect contaminants. The same logic would suggest that as newer, more accurate diagnostic technologies become available, the list of MCLs and the depth of water regulations will continue to evolve.

  3. The Benefits Of Closed-Channel UV Over Open-Channel Disinfection

    The era of dumping waste into rivers is almost over. So says Jon McClean, Chief Technical Officer with ETS-UV, an Evoqua brand. McClean who has been working in UV water treatment for over 30 years recently sat down with Water Online Radio to discuss the growth of water reuse and specifically UV’s role in water reclamation.

  4. Enhanced Primary Treatment Reduces Energy By Separating BOD Before Aeration

    At WEFTEC 2016, Evoqua Water Technologies explored six core challenges faced by wastewater treatment plants -- energy reduction, nutrient removal, odor and corrosion control, aging plant equipment, water reuse and disinfection. In this Water Online Radio interview, Paul Rice, Municipal Marketing Director with Evoqua Water Technologies, discusses energy reduction and nutrient removal in more detail.

  5. The Acceptance Of Water Reuse

    Navigating the regulatory map when it comes to water reuse is difficult. The repurposing of wastewater for clean water purposes falls somewhere between the federal Clean Water Act and the Safe Drinking Water Act. Currently, each U.S. state is tasked with coming up with their own regulatory framework for water reuse within the context of their other water quality and water rights regulations.

  6. How To Improve The Water Resiliency Of US Cities

    Arcadis’ Sustainable Cities Water Index reviews 50 cities around the globe across a string of sustainability measures such as water efficiency, water resiliency and water quality. As Chris Hill, Vice President of Water Supply and Treatment Lead for North America, explains in this Water Online Radio interview, the US cities perform well in the areas of water quality and water efficiency but tend to lag European communities in the area of water resiliency.

  7. Next Generation Membranes For Water Reuse

    Born out of UCLA and the California Inner Systems Institute, Water Planet is focused on revolutionizing water reuse through next generation membrane technology. As Erik Hoek, CEO of Water Planet, explains in this Water Online Radio interview, the company has two core technologies.

  8. Mobile Sensor Management Provides Greater Clarity For Operators

    Beyond measurement, Hach is on a mission to provide its customers with the information to make better decisions. Sam Utley, Vertical Market Manager for Wastewater with Hach, recently sat down with Water Online Radio to discuss the movement towards greater clarity in data collection and evaluation.  

  9. Out Of This World Leak Detection

    Solving the problem of non-revenue water starts with leak detection. Many utilities live with leaks because of the time, labor, and expense involved in detecting, prioritizing and fixing them.  

  10. Quarter Of A Million Pipe Breaks A Year In U.S.

    When repairing a pipe break, a utility has three main considerations. The first is to get water flowing through customers taps again as soon as possible. The second is to do so safely protecting the utility’s workers. And the third is to ensure that the fix lasts.
