• What Is A Purple Pipe?

    For the city of Beaverton, Oregon, the “Beaverton Purple Pipe” is a new water system that routes treated stormwater to irrigate green spaces like parks, school grounds and residential yards. This new program puts stormwater to use that could not otherwise be used, taking less water from the Tualatin River.

  • Choosing A Flow Measurement Technology P&S Article

    Flow, pressure, and temperature are the most important units of measurement when monitoring or controlling fluids in pipes. They are early indicators for problems that can have major implications for the overall business. Flow measurement allows users to know that the right fluid is in the right place at the right time.

  • What Is An Electrocoagulation ETP And Who Can Use This Treatment Technology?

    An Electrocoagulation ETP is an effluent treatment plant used for the treatment of water, wastewater, and process water. Electrochemical technology and in particular specialized electrocoagulation has become a sustainable water treatment technique due to its ability to remove multiple contaminants more efficiently and economically than conventional chemical treatment systems, such as colloidal silica, emulsified oils, total petroleum hydrocarbons, BOD, COD, refractory organics, trace heavy metals and suspended solids.

  • What Is Sustainable Flocculation And What Are Sustainable Flocculants?

    In most standard drinking water and wastewater treatment systems, there is a flocculation process that is used to reduce the concentrations of solids within the effluent stream. This particular process makes use of substances that aid in the clumping together of suspended particles among other contaminants in a clarifier system.

  • Bio-Organic Flocculant Treatment For Phosphorus Removal: A Zeoturb Case Study

    Regulating the discharge of phosphorus from industrial and municipal wastewater treatment plants is a primary factor in averting the eutrophication of surface water sources. Phosphorus is one of the key nutrients that contribute to this process in both lakes and natural waters. Its existence has caused major water quality issues such as the diminished recreational value of these surface waters, increased water treatment costs as well as the potentially lethal consequences of mycotoxins from algal growth.

  • Which Method Is Suitable For Treatment Of Heavy Metals In Paper Mill Wastewater?

    The paper and pulp industry is among the largest industrial users of water resources operating across the world. Typically, pulp and paper industry operations require on average about 54-70 m3 (18,000 gallons) of water per metric ton (2200 pounds) of processed paper goods. This water usage is staggering, and water is used in almost every single part of the pulp and paper manufacturing process. This paper mill wastewater is produced in significant quantities in addition to residual sludge waste from initial pulp digestion to pulp slurry operations and washing the paper-making machinery.


Due to the Revised Lead and Copper Rule and the (eventual?) passing of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), utilities are now required and incentivized to better assess and replace lead pipes within their networks.

From engaging polls on LinkedIn to gaining business through social media engagement, Walid Khoury, General Manager for Desalytics, talks about what it takes to be a pro when it comes to engaging with the water industry on social media.

Tzvika Fisher, Director of Operations – Kando, discusses project management and the impact of Kando with IAM Podcast.

This week's Water Talk looked at the proposed infrastructure bill and how it relates to creating more resilient communities through improved technology. A lot of that new technology comes in the form of more low-impact designs to better manage stormwater by mimicking the natural hydrology of an existing site. You'll also learn about InfoDrainage's ability to design green infrastructure, ensure that designs are sized accurately, and leverage every dollar from the infrastructure bill's grants. We've also added some new and powerful functionality with a 2D engine which can take the guesswork out of including overland flow paths with your drainage design.
