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

  • WWEMA Window: Tackling Today’s Top Challenges
    WWEMA Window: Tackling Today’s Top Challenges

    On September 24, 2013, the Water and Wastewater Equipment Manufacturers Association (WWEMA) held its annual President’s Council at the Chicago O’Hare International Airport. This is an informative one-day event where top executives of WWEMA-member companies get together to share and discuss industry trends, national and international economic news, and upcoming regulatory issues. This was my fifth year attending this event. Each year the insight that is shared is amazing, and 2013 was no exception. By Frank J. Rebori, president of Smith & Loveless, Inc. and vice chairman of WWEMA 

  • Cooling Water Intake Decisions Are Heating Up
    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. By Jim Lauria, Senior Vice Director-Water Treatment, Bilfinger Water Technologies

    WWEMA Window: The Past, Present, And Future Of Water

    As I am writing this article, I find it hard to believe that another year has zipped by and evaluations of all our prognostications from the previous year are now subject to review and scrutiny.  2013 has been an interesting year in the water and wastewater market!

  • Onsite Wastewater Treatment Technologies To Be Considered For Large And Small Projects
    Onsite Wastewater Treatment Technologies To Be Considered For Large And Small Projects

    There is a greater need to raise awareness for better sanitation, water reuse, and storm water solutions with better simple, low-cost, robust technology.

  • 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

    WWEMA Window: ‘Nondispersibles’ Turning Sewers Into Nightmares Nationwide

    Increasingly, wipes are causing serious issues for wastewater treatment system operators. Many of the wipes entering the sewage system are not dispersible and technically not flushable.

    Flood Improvement And LID Modeling Using XP‐SWMM

    Over the years, a number of severe storms have impacted the Harris Gully watershed, including Tropical Storm Allison, which resulted in $5 billion in damages in 2001. Inundation was especially severe at the downstream portions of Harris Gully, where Rice University and the Texas Medical Center are located. A1D/2D hydraulic model (XPSWMM) was instrumental in simulating and evaluating the effects of a proposed drainage alternative.

  • 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.

  • 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

  • Oldest Town In West Virginia Adopts Modern Wastewater Treatment System
    Oldest Town In West Virginia Adopts Modern Wastewater Treatment System

    Along the banks of the Potomac River and nested in the lower Shenandoah Valley, sits the quaint and historical Shepherdstown, the oldest town in West Virginia with nearly 1,200 residents and home to Shepherd University which serves about 4,000 students. The town attracts visitors year-round who come to take in the shops and bistros along German Street and visit the town’s many historical landmarks including the Mecklenburg Tobacco Warehouse. This 1920’s landmark housed the town’s waterworks that supplied water to Shepherdstown residents until the mid ‘70s.

  • A Smart Water Guide To Tackling The 5 Biggest Water Management Challenges
    A Smart Water Guide To Tackling The 5 Biggest Water Management Challenges

    For years, water utilities have expressed concerns about the five biggest pain points in water management:  leaks, non-revenue water, theft, poor customer service, and water and energy conservation. They know that addressing these pain points will help conserve water for future generations while also saving their customers money, but it isn’t always easy.
