  • Packaged Wastewater Treatment Plant Meets Tricky Challenge
    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.

    How To Determine The Right Dosage For Any Chemical

    Understanding exactly how much of each chemical is needed is critical.  Too much, and chemicals and money are wasted, too little, there is a risk of not being in compliance with regulations.

  • Sustainable Nutrient Removal With IFAS
    Sustainable Nutrient Removal With IFAS

    With the AnoxKaldnes Hybas IFAS system, the City of Cocoa Beach, FL, met the challenges of tighter nutrient regulations, site constraints, and operating conditions. And the project met the city’s goals to meet these challenges with a simultaneous decrease in energy use. On top of that, the city did not need to increase operations time or staffing to meet these goals. With the AnoxKaldnes Hybas IFAS system, the city is now meeting stricter nutrient regulations – and doing it sustainably.

  • Myths And Truths About The Waters Of The U.S. Rule
    Myths And Truths About The Waters Of The U.S. Rule

    Last week the House of Representatives approved a bill to block the proposed “Waters of the United States” rule, which would expand the U.S. EPA’s authority to include many streams and wetlands that currently go unregulated under the Clean Water Act. Has the EPA gone too far, or are they just doing what is necessary to protect and enhance water quality?

    In California, Come Rain Or Shine, Upfront Efficiency Is Always In Style

    Caught between a withering drought and floods from winter storms, California faces the worst of both worlds—dealing with scarcity as well as stormwater.  America, and much of the world, is watching to see how this trendsetting state handles those challenges.  After generations of setting America’s style, from cowboys to Beatniks to Beach Boys to Silicon Valley billionaires, California can set perhaps its most important trend yet—it can lead the way to a more water-efficient America.  It has to.  The good news is that it can.

    Cooling Water Intake Decisions Are Heating Up

    Now that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has issued its rule for cooling water intakes under Section 316(b) of the Clean Water Act, the race is on for more than 600 power plants and manufacturing facilities to comply.  Right now, there is probably no better example in the water industry of how carefully choosing among compliance options can lead to millions of dollars in cost savings.

    Endocrine Disrupting Compounds And Their Treatment

    Endocrine disrupting compounds (EDC) are a subset of chemicals identified as contaminants of emerging concern, or “CECs.” EDCs are chemicals that can affect the endocrine (hormonal) systems of humans and animals. Hormones regulate reproduction, growth, and behavior. Anything that can potentially disrupt those functions must be studied carefully.

  • Howard County, Maryland Sets The Pace In Restoring Chesapeake Bay Ecosystem
    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.

  • WWEMA Window: Bridging The Optimization Gap
    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

  • Troubleshooting Nitrification And Denitrification In Wastewater
    Troubleshooting Nitrification And Denitrification In Wastewater

    The proper tools are essential to fixing any problem. Over the years, Ohio EPA’s Compliance Assistance Unit (CAU) has helped dozens of water resource recovery facilities (WRRF) get back into and maintain compliance with NPDES discharge permits. Their field toolkit has included an assortment of batch sampling kits and handheld instruments. Each tool had its place but each also had limitations and, as a result, the compliance puzzle often was missing important pieces. Increasingly, as nutrient limits were incorporated into discharge permits, the missing piece was characterizing the dynamics of nitrification and denitrification. By Patrick Higgins

  • A New, Cost-Efficient Way To De-Sludge Your Lagoon
    A New, Cost-Efficient Way To De-Sludge Your Lagoon

    Most small towns, all over the world, utilize lagoons for treating their wastewater. Many rural industries also utilize lagoons for storm-water and wastewater treatment. While industrial plants may be able to pay for activated sludge treatment of one design or another, small municipalities simply do not have a choice in treating their small populations’ wastes. If the town’s population is not growing, the costs imposed for maintaining a wastewater plant are just not viable on a rural community’s, often, declining budget. The ongoing costs of trained personnel, electricity, and plant maintenance for a wastewater plant is just too high for communities with limited budgets. By Jim Dartez

    Looming In The Sewers: Nonwovens Are Weaving A Tangled Web

    Looming in the world’s sewer system are contaminants of emerging concern.  They’re not the endocrine disruptors, antibiotics or painkillers we’ve been reading about for the past several years (though those are indeed a challenge).  These contaminants are bigger, and like the legendary alligators rumored to lurk in the New York City sewer system when I was a kid, they are growing steadily, day by day, to pose a catastrophic threat.

    The Basics: Keeping Our Water Clean Requires Monitoring

    Keeping the water in our lakes, rivers, and streams clean requires monitoring of water quality at many points as it gradually makes its way from its source to our oceans. Over the years ever increasing environmental concerns and regulations have heightened the need for increased diligence and tighter restrictions on wastewater quality.
