  • 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

  • Ion Exchange Resins Reduce Pollution From Refineries
    Ion Exchange Resins Reduce Pollution From Refineries

    A single operational oil and gas refinery produces millions of gallons of contaminated wastewater a year, leading to environmental pollution concerns. Ion exchange resins are a metal- and ion-removal solution to help clean this wastewater for plant reuse or safe disposal. This application guide explains how resins can be used to demineralize refinery water in process, boiler, and cooling water applications.

  • Extreme Water Filtering – Consider High-Flow Systems To Save Costs And Reduce Waste
    Extreme Water Filtering – Consider High-Flow Systems To Save Costs And Reduce Waste

    In an era when everything is done to the extreme – from sports, to home makeovers, to weather predictions – it should come as no surprise that the world of water filtering has joined the crowd. “Extreme” filtering, so to speak, is achieved through the use of high-flow cartridge systems – smaller designs that are able to handle much higher water volumes and pressures at lower costs and with less maintenance. By Robert LeConche, President, Shelco Filters

  • Alternative Wastewater Treatment Option Suitable for Sustainable Practices
    Alternative Wastewater Treatment Option Suitable for Sustainable Practices

    Merryvale Starmont chose to investigate alternate wastewater treatment equipment options to better fit with the company’s dedication to sustainable practices. The old turbine style surface aerators were replaced with UltraFine Bubble aerators, reducing the total horsepower from 37.5 down to 8. An automatic DO control system was also installed to increase energy conservation. The reduction in horsepower allowed the facility to claim over $13,000 in PG&E rebates in addition to the savings being realized by the more energy efficient motors.

  • The Basics: Keeping Our Water Clean Requires Monitoring
    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.

  • Smart Wireless Technology Solves Environmental Monitoring Challenge
    Smart Wireless Technology Solves Environmental Monitoring Challenge

    Faced with the challenge of meeting environmental monitoring legislation, Korsnäs Gävle needed a way to monitor water from their heat exchangers for contamination before discharging it to the sea. Additionally, the board and paper manufacturer required new sensors for continuous monitoring of pH, dissolved oxygen, and water temperatures from effluent emissions in their basins and ponds. In this case study, learn how Korsnäs Gävle implemented a wireless sensor network to quickly  achieve compliance and meet its monitoring needs.

    Wingo Water & Sewer Upgrades To ORION® Fixed Network (SE) System From Badger Meter

    Located in rural Kentucky, the small town of Wingo may seem like an unlikely candidate to become the first city in the state to employ a complete Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) system. However, when it came time to upgrade its meter reading system, the city wanted a comprehensive water utility solution and chose the ORION Fixed Network (SE) system from Badger Meter.

  • Increase Revenue With New Commercial Metering Technology
    Increase Revenue With New Commercial Metering Technology

    Revenue for water utilities is circling the drain. Most commercial water meters can stand up to the high water flow of commercial water customers, but these same meters often have a hard time measuring low water flows and retaining accurate meter reads over time and continuous flow conditions. Grocery stores, for example, do not pay for the scant amount of water used for produce misters because it passes through many commercial water meters without detection. These low flows add up to big dollars and are forcing water utilities to take a hard look at the accuracy of their meter fleet.
