Local Support Saves Time And Money
Local Support Saves Time And Money

At a water treatment plant that provides drinking water for distribution to a large area of customers, a contractor decided to switch to SITRANS FM MAG 5100W flowmeters. A local representative saved a the contractor time and money by recognizing the need for the magmeter to be isolated from the piping protection before startup, which also saved the customer from added downtime.

DRINKING WATER MEASUREMENT WHITE PAPERS AND CASE STUDIES

  • Case Study: Monitoring And Protecting Water Quality In Lake Mead, Nevada Lake Mead is one of several reservoirs along the Colorado River; however, due to increases in population and agricultural operations in recent decades, this once-expansive lake in the desert is becoming more compromised. While inflow into Lake Mead primarily is from the Colorado River, a small percent is also from rivers on the northern side of the Lake and from Las Vegas Wash on the northwest side. Las Vegas Wash transports treated municipal wastewater effluent, stormwater and urban runoff, and shallow groundwater seepage from the Las Vegas urban area to Boulder Basin in Lake Mead. Effluent flow rates have more than doubled in recent years, prompting concern over potential effects to reservoir water quality, especially since some of the water is pumped for the municipal water treatment plant at Saddle Island
  • Article: Need Water Quality Assurance? UV254 Can Help
    Article: Need Water Quality Assurance? UV254 Can Help Superior water quality — it is why we treat our waters. All around the world we are continuously striving to improve the safety of our drinking water to protect public health. However, how are we assuring the success of our efforts? UV254 testing provides valuable assurance about your water quality by detecting organic matter in water. This is something that turbidity can’t do. Just because you have low turbidity does not mean that you will have low organics. By Real Tech Inc.
  • Case Study: Water Supplier Ensures DBP Compliance With UV254 Organic Monitoring
    Case Study: Water Supplier Ensures DBP Compliance With UV254 Organic Monitoring Mohawk Valley Water Authority (MVWA) is a progressive supplier of potable water. With source water from the Adirondack Mountains, MVWA works to improve on nature and provide superior water quality, always striving to meet or exceed drinking water standards. Like many other surface water sources, MVWA’s water supply is rich with natural organic matter (NOM). Unfortunately, growing research has demonstrated that NOM in water when combined with chlorine leads to the formation of potentially harmful disinfection by-products.
