Located at the mouth of the Big Cottonwood Canyon, the Big Cottonwood WTP is one of three water treatment facilities providing treated water to Salt Lake City (SLC), Utah. The utility distributes water through about 1,300 miles of transmission and distribution pipe to over 90,500 connections.

Colorado Springs, Colorado, enjoys some of the highest quality drinking water in the country, with most of its water coming from high country snowmelt. Despite its pristine origin in the mountains, the water at the far end of the distribution system is prone to developing trihalomethanes (THMs) due to low turnover and high water age.

While the addition of chlorine is one of the safest and most effective means for water disinfection, under certain circumstances chlorine in combination with naturally occurring organic compounds in water can lead to the formation of undesirable disinfection byproducts (DBPs).

Eastern Municipal Water District (EMWD) serves about 142,000 customers in Riverside County, California. The EMWD service area is one of the largest for any water district in arid southern California. On the drinking water side, EMWD manages two water treatment plants and over 15 reservoirs. With 70% of the district’s water coming from the Metropolitan Water District with chloramine disinfection, EMWD has become reliant on chloramine disinfection to manage long transmission lines and longer detention times due to on‐going water scarcity.

  • Polymers used in wastewater treatment represent one of the most expensive operating costs for municipalities. By providing an optimal environment for the activation of these polymers, plants can improve efficiency by as much as 20 percent or more. At the same time, drinking water plant managers face enormous pressure to control the disinfection residual. In this Water Talk interview, Matt Boeh, director of sales for UGSI Chemical Feed, discusses the advanced mixing technologies that can be used to improve polymer usage as well as address drinking water quality issues in distribution systems.

  • Polymer activation through proper hydration of the polymer particle is critical in water clarification or sludge dewatering applications. According to Jeff Rhodes, Vice President of Commercial Development for UGSI Solutions, “the key is to have a high energy zone at the moment of initial welding, when the polymer and the water come together.”


  • There are plenty of bells and whistles at a given water treatment plant. Between pumps, mixers, dry chemical feeders, and other chemical handling equipment, it can be easy to go with the status quo when it comes time to upgrade certain pieces of equipment. For an operation’s chemical metering pumps, this usually meant replacing one unit with its exact replica, instead of facing the often arduous task of researching a better option.
