Facing state Department of Environmental Quality mandates, an Arizona wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) took on a large-scale expansion project and effluent-quality upgrade to become a state-of-the-art water reclamation facility.
The Benefits Of Reusing Wastewater
Since water is an essential element in food or beverage operations, reusing it can reduce a business’s water usage ratios, help meet sustainability goals, lower supply risk and contribute to cost savings, making it a top priority for many companies today.
SuperDisc™ Filtration System Case Study
Glendale Heights Wastewater Treatment Plant discharges treated water to the East Branch of the DuPage River in Illinois.
CleanFlo™ Monoscreen® Case Study
When the polar bears at the Brookfield Zoo were introduced to their new habitats at the Great Bear Wilderness, they had no idea how much more fulfilling their life would become.
Antiscalant Impacts Water Reclamation Efforts
Water reuse efforts in the West Coast are a priority and have the Ground Water Replenishing System (GWRS) of the Orange County Water District (OCWD) utilizing new technologies for water conservation.
Water Utility Turns To State-Of-The-Art UV Technology To Help Address Drought
The 2013 year was the driest in recorded history with many areas of the San Joaquin Valley reporting groundwater levels more than 100 feet below previous historical lows.
Water Supply Needs At Odds With Regional Demands To Lower Power Use
The shoreline of the Red Sea is a dazzling destination for tourists and locals to experience the beach and enjoy marine activities. In Egypt, the shoreline sprawls from the Suez Canal in the north, down to the southern part of the country bordering Sudan.
On-Site Chlorine Generation: The Answer For This Reuse System
By making hypochlorite solution only as needed, the compact Constant Chlor unit brings efficiency, consistency to water reuse system.
Overcoming Difficult Conditions, Salty Groundwater And Changes In Feedwater Quality
Kibbutz Reim had to convert salty groundwater into a high quality irrigation resource in this desert-like region. High recovery was essential to this customer, both because of the limited amount of groundwater available and the challenge of brine disposal from their inland location.
High Recovery Reverse Osmosis Water Treatment For Industrial, Agricultural, And Municipal Applications
Industry accounts for nearly 60 percent of fresh water withdrawals in the developed world and agriculture consumes 70 percent of fresh water supplies globally, according to UNESCO.
Pulp And Paper Manufacturer Significantly Increases Production While Complying With Discharge Limitations
A U.S.-based pulp and paper manufacturer required high purity process and boiler feed water. It was using water from a local well and treating it with a 150 gpm conventional RO system operating at 75% recovery, but this was creating 50 gpm of wastewater – over 26 million gallons per year.
