Packaged Wastewater Treatment Plant Meets Tricky Challenge

Packaged Wastewater Treatment Plants offer many advantages, flexibility notwithstanding. One plant in particular, located in Georgia, needed to be upgraded to handle the increased flows from a growing city and to address new effluent discharge regulations.  The tight plant site offered minimal opportunity for routine expansion of the packaged wastewater plant volumes, hence special designs were needed. Learn how this 200,000 GPD system is thriving.

WASTEWATER CASE STUDIES AND WHITEPAPERS

  • Case Study: Improving Urban Stormwater Management With 2D Water Modelling Applications Engineers and city planners can never be too careful when it comes to urban flood protection and loss prevention. Human life and property damage are often at risk. Recent storm and flooding disasters throughout the world have highlighted the need for government bodies to prepare for the effects of climate change and extreme weather events in urban environments
  • Case Study: The Power To Make A Change For The Better
    Case Study: The Power To Make A Change For The Better There’s no arguing the fact that the Power Generating industry is a 24/7 business. And although an industrial pump may be a small piece of the overall operational picture, a failed pump can cause more than a few problems - even if a backup is at hand. Paired with the decrease in manpower that most plants have suffered throughout the last several years, the overall goal of maximizing effectiveness of even the best plants is jeopardized today.

  • Advanced Oxidation Processes: A.O.P. Whitepaper
    Advanced Oxidation Processes: A.O.P. Whitepaper

    Advanced Oxidation Processing is the generation and implementation of hydroxyl radicals (HO+) to oxidize contaminates in air and water. It is considered one of the most powerful oxidants readily available and it produces NO harmful by-products.

  • Distributed Aeration Of Ponds For De-Stratification And Algae Control
    Distributed Aeration Of Ponds For De-Stratification And Algae Control

    The newly patented Dif-jet™ Floating Aeration System aerates water above the surface and pumps the aerated water under pressure back into the pond through unique discharge configurations to produce large areas and variable depths of aerated water.

  • Case Study: Fine Screen Retrofit Cuts Upgrade Costs By $1M
    Case Study: Fine Screen Retrofit Cuts Upgrade Costs By $1M To preserve Hawaii’s natural beauty, keep up with growth and ensure regulatory compliance, the US Army Schofield Barracks, Hawaii’s largest Army post, recently upgraded their wastewater treatment facility located on the island of Oahu. The result was improved efficiency and water quality, and decreased environmental impact on the region. By JWC Environmental
  • Minimizing Energy Use At Pump Stations With Extreme Variable Flows
    Minimizing Energy Use At Pump Stations With Extreme Variable Flows

    Every spring, the wastewater municipality in Dalarna, Sweden, experienced melting snow and heavy rainfall that caused a dramatic increase in pump station inflow. To handle this seasonal volume, the station had oversized pumps that consumed more energy than needed during drier months. This case study illustrates how the installation of a variable-speed pump controller decreased energy consumption by almost 50 percent while allowing for variations in flow.

  • New Luminescent Technology Brings Faster, More Accurate CBOD Analysis

    Measuring DO in the CBOD procedure was once troublesome and inefficient for lab personnel and operators alike at the Southside Wastewater Treatment Plant in Tyler, Texas. But all that changed when they adopted new luminescent technology that has eliminated problems with instrument drift, slow measurements, and frequent maintenance.

    Produce Potable And Pharmaceutical Grade Water From Problematic Brackish Water

    A pharmaceutical manufacturing plant located in Sedom, Israel faced challenging environmental conditions including low humidity, temperatures exceeding 105 degrees Fahrenheit and limited water supplies.

  • White Paper: Recycling And Reuse Of Desalinated Seawater This paper presents the technology that is capable of treating wastewater, discusses how this technology is suitable for the challenges presented by wastewater treatment, presents examples of what can be expected as water quality, and presents the results of a plant handling wastewater.

  • Application Note: Employing Best Water Quality Monitoring Practices To Reduce Runoff During Construction Under proposed EPA stormwater runoff guidelines, construction site operators will be required to actively monitor or sample stormwater discharges daily. The enhanced effluent rules take effect in August 2011 for construction sites that disturb 20 or more acres and February 2014 for sites that disturb 10 or more acres, and they may stipulate a strict numerical limit of less than 280 NTU for average turbidity (sediment in water) on any day.

  • Optimizing Air Flows To Aeration Basins
    Optimizing Air Flows To Aeration Basins

    As a result of clean energy mandates and the rising cost of energy, wastewater treatment facilities around the country are retrofitting their instrumentation to run highly efficient, cost-effective, clean facilities. To reduce emissions and produce clean energy, solid wastes are often digested in large digester tanks to reduce the volume of waste (sludge) and produce more biogas, which is then used as fuel in the cogeneration process. However, a clean environment calls for not just clean air and clean energy, but clean water as well.

  • On-Line Phosphorous Measurement Takes The Guesswork Out Of Alum Treatment
    On-Line Phosphorous Measurement Takes The Guesswork Out Of Alum Treatment

    Phosphorous promotes eutrophication in surface waters and helps create conditions for algal blooming and oxygen depletion. Some phosphorous removal can occur naturally in a conventional biological wastewater treatment facility, but the result is not reliably compliant with increasingly strict limits on permissible phosphate levels in effluent discharged to receiving streams, ponds and lakes. By Bob Dabkowski, Hach Company

    How One Wastewater Treatment Plant Saved Time And Money Measuring Turbidity And TSS The wastewater treatment plant of a major corporation is designed for a population capacity of 6 million people and is considered a very large wastewater treatment plant.
  • Disinfection: Chlorine Measurement In Wastewater And Regulated Discharge Requirements Homes, industry, schools, and businesses all generate sanitary waste, or sewage. Sewage treatment is a multistage process that cleans up wastewater before discharge or reuse. In the final step of the treatment, disinfectants are added to kill disease-causing organisms. Common disinfectants are chlorine gas and sodium hypochlorite. Chlorine dosage levels are designed to leave almost no residual in the wastewater after treatment
  • 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.
