Clogging continues to be the biggest headache at municipal wastewater treatment operations, while rising energy costs and stricter government controls have been emerging as larger issues. The transportation of waste, however, is a rapidly growing concern as a higher solids content is being driven by cutbacks in water consumption. The increase in fibrous materials is challenging for both the pump hydraulics and the pipe works. In this Water Talk interview, Nicole Osborne, product manager for submersible wastewater pumps with Grundfos, discusses advanced technology that can help plant managers successfully tackle all these issues as well as address other water and wastewater demands.
