    Next Generation Mag Meter Measuring Flow In A Pump Station

    A municipal drinking water distribution system, also known as a water supply system, is used to provide fresh drinking water to residential and commercial customers and facilities around the world. A distribution system for drinking water typically begins with: a) intake of raw surface water from a reservoir or lake or b) ground water intake from wells transferred to a water treatment plant. During the water treatment process, the water intake must flow through a series of processes that clarify, filter, and disinfect the water source transported to the distribution system and made available for storage and human consumption.

  • How To Move The Needle Of Energy Consumption
    How To Move The Needle Of Energy Consumption

    Summer is here, and with it rising temperatures and energy costs.  In recent weeks, political unrest in Iraq has caused fuel prices to climb to near record highs, and no relief is in sight. Future-minded water utilities realize any decision made today to help offset future energy consumption is both economically and environmentally wise. With that in mind, utilities across the country are desperately searching for green products and innovations to help them conserve precious resources in the future, and iron pipe is one tool that can help them accomplish this.

  • Why Engineers Can’t Solve The Water Shortage With Supply-Side Solutions
    Why Engineers Can’t Solve The Water Shortage With Supply-Side Solutions

    We are at the point where there is precious little left to dig or dam or drain or pump, and we are going to have a problem explaining that us engineers don’t have all the answers.

  • Has Fracking Gone ‘Green’?
    Has Fracking Gone ‘Green’?

    There are few topics more controversial these days than hydraulic fracturing ("fracking"). While the debate rages on as to whether fracking poses a risk to water quality, a new desalination technique addresses two other environmental concerns: water scarcity and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Developed by researchers at the University of British Columbia (UBC), the breakthrough technology uses excess carbon dioxide created in the fracking process to desalinate the process water, making it available for water reuse. It also generates chemicals — hydrochloric acid and carbonate salts — that are valuable for many industrial applications.

  • The Right Prescription For Disposing Of Medications
    The Right Prescription For Disposing Of Medications

    There are many pathways by which pharmaceuticals can get into waterways. When you take an aspirin, it all doesn’t stay in your body, a portion of drug is excreted in the urine or feces.  Research has also shown that environmental discharge of pharmaceuticals can occur during the manufacturing process, and waters receiving treated wastes from manufacturing plants can contain high levels of the chemicals.  Another known pathway is the disposal of unused medications, which presents water utilities with an excellent opportunity to engage the public in communicating the impact of responsible waste practices and the impact of these actions on our watersheds.

    WWEMA Window: Bridging The Optimization Gap

    The term “optimization” is becoming increasingly ubiquitous in our industry. Search almost any conference program, read through a trade journal, or sit in an annual planning meeting and you are likely to see or hear the word. However, as it gains popularity, optimization may be generating more questions than answers. Utilities often ask what optimization means and how to get started. For those that have already made changes, they may be asking if their utility is fully optimized.  By Kurt Tyler, Hach Company

    Sodium Hypochlorite: The Unsung Hero In Disinfection

    For the fortunate few in this world, many of us enjoy fresh cold water from our taps, crisp white linens in hotel rooms, and refreshing and safe water in swimming pools. It all seems very easy and straight forward with all the new technologies available in the industry to ensure safe and clean drinking water. A reliable and effective technology is always needed to ensure peace-of-mind for all water treatment processes. In many cases, it is the centuries old Sodium Hypochlorite (NaClO) chemical, or as known by every household – Bleach. By Angela Yeung, District Sales Manager, Grundfos

  • Behind The Screen: When Protecting MBRs, There’s More To Pre-Screening Technology Than Just Screens
    Behind The Screen: When Protecting MBRs, There’s More To Pre-Screening Technology Than Just Screens

    There’s no doubt that effective pretreatment enhances the efficiency and effectiveness of a membrane bioreactor (MBR) plant — removing hair, fibers, and inorganic solids from influent at the very start creates benefits that resonate throughout the entire process.  The heart of pretreatment is a good screen — but good screening technology goes well beyond the screen itself to include seals, cleaning mechanisms, and logic controls as well.

    Drinking Water Disinfection – A History and Improved Monitoring Techniques

    In many countries we take for granted the availability and reliability of safe drinking water.  A recent trip outside of the US reminded me of this fact when I saw notices in the hotel rooms stating the drinking water met specific standards and was safe to drink however, my friends from the country emphatically warned me to not drink the water.
