    “One Water” Communication: Language, Icons and Industry Color Palette

    Water is a multi-faceted good and a global priority that affects human beings and the wellbeing of companies and institutions that need water to survive. Those interested in shaping the future of water management are pushing the notion that water is water, whether drinking water, storm water, rain water, or used water. Doing so, according to the experts, encourages "comprehensive thinking, planning and management of our waters on a transformational scale” and pushes the industry towards a “one water” resource management.

Winery Wastewater Treatment Systems

Winery Wastewater Treatment Systems

ClearBlu installs the most effective winery wastewater systems available. We are a design/build contractor. Utilizing biodigester technology, our capital costs for systems are significantly lower than other systems. Why? Because we are not utilizing municipal wastewater system technology to treat winery waste. They represent two different problems.

Winery waste water contains sugars and grape organics. This narrow profile means that it is easier to treat. Typically engineering firms will spend 10’s or 100’s of thousands of dollars designing systems that are overly complex, very costly to install, difficult to operate and expensive to maintain. By focusing on the content of the waste stream, ClearBlu installs systems with much smaller footprints. If ponds are utilized, less than 24% of the acreage engineers require will be needed. We eliminate chemical usage by eliminating DAF and SAF systems.

Their field toolkit has included an assortment of batch sampling kits and handheld instruments. Each tool had its place but each also had limitations and, as a result, the compliance puzzle often was missing important pieces. Increasingly, as nutrient limits were incorporated into discharge permits, the missing piece was characterizing the dynamics of nitrification and denitrification. By Patrick Higgins
