  • Case Study: Flagstaff, AZ
    Case Study: Flagstaff, AZ

    In order to achieve more stringent effluent limits, the City of Flagstaff worked with Black and Veatch to upgrade the Wildcat Hill Wastewater Treatment Facility, located in northern Arizona. The facility produces a high quality effluent, as well as reclaimed water, which is distributed throughout the region to construction companies and golf courses. The remaining treated water is discharged into the Rio de Flag Creek. The plant has a design influent annual average flow of 6.0 MGD.

  • Aquapoint’s AquaCell And Hallett® H-30’s Perfect Partners On Zooland Project
    Aquapoint’s AquaCell And Hallett® H-30’s Perfect Partners On Zooland Project

    Zooland is a resort/campground site in the Asheboro, NC, area. They have a relatively high-strength waste stream and are permitted for a surface discharge, therefore they must achieve very high effluent standards. One way or another, there was an obvious need for wastewater treatment. Cost was an issue, because private clients (especially) don’t want to spend money on wastewater.

  • 5 Quick Tips On Mechanical Aeration
    5 Quick Tips On Mechanical Aeration

    Are you not getting the aeration performance you expect? Perhaps you’re not even aware that your system is lagging. In this age of doing more with less — practically a mandate considering high water-quality demands coupled with tight municipal budgets — operational optimization is essential. Since mechanical aeration is a cornerstone of successful wastewater treatment, it’s a natural place to focus your optimization and troubleshooting efforts.

  • White Paper: Passive Filter - Sustainable BMP For Permanent Stormwater Treatment Of Heavy Metals, Nutrients, Hydrocarbons And Sediment
    White Paper: Passive Filter - Sustainable BMP For Permanent Stormwater Treatment Of Heavy Metals, Nutrients, Hydrocarbons And Sediment Passive filtration provides a sustainable alternative to classical drainage concepts for source control of hydrocarbons, heavy metals, and nutrients that endanger our water bodies. In urban areas with high building density, traditional drainage concepts like wetlands are not available and the concept of decentralized treatment facilities that can be housed in catch basin structures are a viable option for treatment of pollutants.

WASTEWATER APPLICATION NOTES

  • Ion Exchange Resins Reduce Pollution From Refineries
    Ion Exchange Resins Reduce Pollution From Refineries

    A single operational oil and gas refinery produces millions of gallons of contaminated wastewater a year, leading to environmental pollution concerns. Ion exchange resins are a metal- and ion-removal solution to help clean this wastewater for plant reuse or safe disposal. This application guide explains how resins can be used to demineralize refinery water in process, boiler, and cooling water applications.

  • Total Kjeldahl Nitrogen: Simplified With s-TKN™
    Total Kjeldahl Nitrogen: Simplified With s-TKN™

    The Dallas County Water and Sewer Authority (DCWSA) in Selma, Alabama recently found itself in a tough spot: under the scrutiny of the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM). The wastewater treatment system needed better means for control. Ammonia, TSS, cBOD, and TKN readings were out of compliance. Then they discovered a new testing method known as simplified-TKN (s-TKN), and with it, better process control to achieve regulatory compliance. By Andrew Antonio, Municipal Wastewater Market Manager and Derek Walker, Applications Development Manager

  • Application Note: Small Team Saves Big Hassles With The Professional Plus Multiparameter Instrument In the past, Shinkle and her colleagues carried separate YSI meters for pH and DO, she notes. Now they use the YSI Professional Plus handheld multiparameter instrument, which allows them to measure pH, DO and temperature with one quick, reliable instrument. By YSI
  • Importance Of Measuring UV Transmittance (UVT) For UV Disinfection

    UV disinfection systems disinfect water using UV light at the 254 nm wavelength. UV light at this wavelength actually destroys the DNA of microbiological material in the water which prevents dangerous viruses such as cryptosporidium and e-coli from reproducing and causing harm.

  • Application Note: Building A Baseline In Florida The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) knows that establishing dissolved oxygen (DO) and nutrient criteria for the state’s water bodies is a challenge – both scientifically and politically
  • Monitoring Nitrates In Drinking Water And Wastewater

    Nitrate is present in high levels in wastewater due in part to the high nitrates present in human sewage but also from some types of industrial effluent entering the municipal sewer system.

  • Underground Treatment Of Airport Deicing Fluid
    Underground Treatment Of Airport Deicing Fluid While keeping air flight safe, airports and airlines are also obliged to clean up after themselves and protect nearby streams and water bodies. And due to increasing chemical usage and looming regulations, some airports will need to invest in significant infrastructure upgrades to capture and treat stormwater contaminated with deicing fluid.
