    Meeting WHO Standards For Cryptosporidium With UV In Singapore

    Johor River Waterworks (JRWW) is located in Kotta Tinggi, Malaysia approximately 60 km north of Singapore. Under a water agreement with the Malaysian government, the Singapore government signed a 50 year agreement with the Public Utilities Board (PUB) to build, upgrade and operate the plant on the Johor River until the year 2050. Plants A and B were built between 1986 and 1999 and Plant C was constructed in 2001. With a combined capacity of 946 million liters per day (250 US MGD), the treated water is piped to Singapore and provides about 40% of the water for a population of 5.3 million people.

    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
