BioBarrier® Membrane BioReactor (MBR) & HSMBR
Bio-Microbics introduces a new generation of wastewater treatment solutions, the BioBarrier® HSMBR® (High Strength Membrane Bioreactor), to help meet the increasingly stringent needs of specialized applications. The membranes and processes used in this advanced system act as an impenetrable physical barrier for nearly all common pollutants found in wastewater today. The advanced technology offers the highest quality effluent possible on the market. The BioBarrier® MBR was the first system to be approved for water reuse (NSF/ANSI Std 350, class R) by the NSF (National Sanitation Foundation) International.
WHITE PAPERS AND CASE STUDIES
Replacement Vacuum Feeders For Hypo Treatment End Heavy Feeder Maintenance Burden At WWTP
The instrumentation supervisor for the City of Baltimore, MD’s 150-MGD Back River wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) reports that replacement of problematic vacuum feeders with more advanced vacuum feed units has ended heavy maintenance burdens associated with sodium hypochlorite (hypo) treatment of plant effluent. By Cliff Lebowitz
A New Paradigm In Aeration Technology
The DO2E organization sprang from one individual’s attempt to solve an aeration problem in a fish hatchery and realizing that his device to do so had many other applications as well. This device broke up algal blooms as well as aerating, and it was only a short step to modify it into breaking up FOG (fats, oils, and grease) deposits in grease traps and lift stations. This device was patented, thus DO2E was born.
Howard County, Maryland Sets The Pace In Restoring Chesapeake Bay Ecosystem
Howard County, Maryland, Bureau of Utilities recently completed the $92-million Addition No. 7 project at the Little Patuxent Water Reclamation Plant (LPWRP) to improve the quality of the plant’s effluent discharge and to reduce harmful nutrients reaching Chesapeake Bay. The project’s various increments took over five years to complete and incorporated innovative design solutions and state-of-the-art technologies for denitrification, aeration and disinfection. The project presents a model for Maryland’s 66 largest wastewater treatment plants and possibly procurement of municipal facilities elsewhere facing increasingly stringent regulatory changes.
Channel Monster Cuts Maintenance Costs And Protects Pumps In Santa Ana

Storm Water Master Plan Development Employing An Integrated 1D/2D Model For The Redwood Basin In Josephine County
The use of two-dimensional (2D) storm water models has increased in recent years primarily due to advances in software, hardware and the availability of surface data. These advances allow for robust and diverse applications including basin-wide storm water assessments. By Ryan Retzlaff, Cardno and Anthony Kuch, XP Solutions
Permitting Green Infrastructure: A Guide To Improving Municipal Stormwater Permits And Protecting Water Quality
This guide is intended to be a resource for community and watershed advocates that provides clear examples of new developments in municipal stormwater permits that foster on-site management of stormwater by encouraging or requiring that runoff be controlled through the practices commonly referred to as “low impact development” or “green infrastructure.”
Long Trail Brewing Company: Increased Capacity Within An Existing Footprint With A BioMag™ System
Founded in 1989, the Long Trail Brewing Company quickly outgrew the capacity of its basement location in Bridgewater, Vermont.
Ultrasonic Metering For Small Water Meter Applications
For many years, ultrasonic metering has been utilized for large scale liquid and gas measurement. However, it is a relatively new technology for small meter applications – particularly those designed for potable water.
Solving A Taste and Odor Problem Step By Step (Article)
The City of Alliance Ohio’s water system has experienced annual Taste and Odor (T&O) events since the mid 1950’s, when the first of two reservoirs, Deer Creek Reservoir, was placed into service. Nutrient contaminants, in particular phosphorous, in the watershed accumulate in the reservoirs causing algal blooms. By Terry Keep of TrojanUV, Said Abou Abdallah of Arcadis, and Dr. Dean Reynolds, Department of Water Treatment City of Alliance, Ohio
Continuous Fill SBR Tanks Help WWTP Exceed Effluent Requirements, Generate Additional Revenue
In order to meet the anticipated effluent criteria required by the Pennsylvania DEP, the Newville Borough Water & Sewer Authority determined that its existing wastewater treatment facility needed renovations. By installing two continuous fill SBR tanks, the facility lowered total nitrogen below permit limits, reduced energy costs, and created a new revenue stream (selling unused nutrient allocations). Read the case study for full details.
