WASTEWATER TREATMENT

The Fine Points Of Headworks Screening (Part 2 Of 3)
The Fine Points Of Headworks Screening (Part 2 Of 3)

Protecting wastewater treatment facilities requires operators to think strategically about their unique challenges and identify the best solution for their specific requirements. Specifying the appropriate headworks system for the plant’s needs is arguably one of the most important design decisions a public works engineer will make.

WASTEWATER TREATMENT CASE STUDIES AND WHITE PAPERS

  • The Role Of Surface Aeration In Wastewater Treatment
    The Role Of Surface Aeration In Wastewater Treatment

    The process of aeration is used to mix, circulate, or dissolve air into a liquid or another substance. Mechanical aeration can reduce the amount of chemicals needed to treat a body of water by providing the oxygen that bacteria need to function properly. There are two common types of water aeration: subsurface and surface. Although subsurface aeration comes to mind first in discussions of wastewater treatment, surface aeration plays an equally important role in oxygenating liquids.

  • Tooele, UT, Harnesses The Sun To Reduce Sludge Volume And Saves Big
    Tooele, UT, Harnesses The Sun To Reduce Sludge Volume And Saves Big

    City of Tooele needed to reduce sludge volume that would produce reusable material, be simple to maintain, and provide cost effective operation. The Huber Technology SRT Solar Dryer was determined to be a technology fit to achieve Tooele’s goals. The linear feed design of the SRT Solar Dryer provided the ability to feed dewatered sludge to the dryer as it was produced. Read the full case study to learn more about their installation.
