Disinfection can rightly be called the “ultimate” stage of drinking water treatment — typically occurring at the end of the process, and acting as a final step before water is sent out of the plant, through the pipes, and into the world. It may come last, but it’s certainly not least.
Wastewater pumps have traditionally been operated in an on-off mode for small as well as large wastewater pump stations. Because the inflow of wastewater is varying over time and is often only a fraction of a pump’s required capacity engineers have looked for ways to operate wastewater pumps at a reduced capacity in order to optimize performance while reducing operating costs.
An aging lift station in Marietta, OH, was the first of 12 stations to be upgraded as part of a capital improvement plan at the city’s wastewater treatment plant (WWTP).
The federal Lead and Copper Rule (LCR) is destined for changes attributable to hard times in Flint, MI, and the agreement from an EPA advisory council that lessons must be learned from the latest crisis.

In 2002, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) promulgated the final arsenic primary drinking water maximum contaminant level (MCL) of 10 micrograms per liter. In addition, some states have adopted even lower limits (5 micrograms per liter). Over the past decade, this regulation has prompted hundreds of municipalities to utilize numerous treatment technologies for the removal of arsenic. Among the various technologies available, the EPA identified adsorption with GFH Media from Evoqua Water Technologies as a Best Available Technology (BAT) for arsenic removal.
