A Closer Look At Cost-Effective Filtration Technology
From the growth of contaminants of emerging concern — such as PFAS and 1,4-dioxane — to dwindling water supplies and tighter budgets for capital projects, the ability for municipalities and industry to generate clean, safe water has been a growing challenge across the country. Here’s how Harmsco’s Hurricane Filtration System is uniquely positioned to help meet these challenges.
Understanding Options Key To Selecting Most Effective, Lowest Cost PFAS Solution
Municipal water utilities throughout the U.S. are increasingly grappling with the need to address PFAS once it is detected in source water. Because standards are a moving target while treatment options are limited and can represent a massive expense, addressing PFAS can be especially challenging for small water systems. The key to finding an optimal solution requires a thorough investigation of solutions.

Preparing For Algae Season
For water treatment operators and utility officials, the summer months don’t just mean sunshine, pool parties, and barbecues.
