Treating Contaminants Of Emerging Concern In A Variety Of Water Sources
Contaminants of emerging concern (CECs) can be a challenge throughout all stages of the water cycle. Here are some key considerations for water treatment plants (WTPs), wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs), and water reuse applications where removal of 1,4-dioxane or per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) is currently, or might soon become, a mandatory focus in their treatment train.
Planning For Total Resiliency In Fighting Contaminants Of Emerging Concern
In the constant flow of drinking water and wastewater treatment systems, operators have precious little time to skip a beat. When unexpected changes arise — such as being mandated to reduce contaminants of emerging concern (CECs) — the ability to maintain balance throughout the treatment process becomes a driving factor. For decision-makers faced with remaining resilient despite CEC concerns, here are some key points to consider.
Fight Contaminants Of Emerging Concern With A Pipeline Of Innovation
Water treatment challenges are never-ending — from source water availability, to seasonal upsets, to new contaminants of emerging concern (CECs). The best way to stay ahead of such issues is to cultivate a pipeline of innovative solution development ready to address the next challenge. Here are some key insights for evaluating suppliers that are best positioned to do exactly that.
Testing Better Paths To Contaminant Control
As a utility, it is tough enough to be notified that you need to remove a new contaminant of emerging concern (CEC). It’s even harder without having a complete picture of what is involved. For water treatment plants (WTPs) and wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs), here is how choosing the right testing regimen is essential to quantifying the degree of the problem and evaluating the optimum treatment alternatives.

Advanced oxidation treatment system and water treatment plant upgrade save money.
UV Treatment System Fills The Bill For Water Reuse
Small city selects full-featured and low maintenance UV treatment for its water reuse system that easily complies with demanding California Title 22 Regulations.
Harmful Algae: How To Stay Ahead Of The Bloom
It’s the call no water treatment plant superintendent wants to receive, especially not while on vacation. Andy McClure, Superintendent of Toledo, Ohio’s Collins Park Water Treatment Plant, answered his phone to hear his head of operations report that the level of microcystin in the finished water was high, caused by a large harmful algal bloom (HAB) that was impacting the plant’s Lake Erie intake.
UV System Saves Energy And Reduces Maintenance
After a 17-year run, a plant’s UV disinfection system was limping toward the finish line. The city needed to identify a replacement UV system that fit into the same channel, offered lower power consumption, and contained a practical ease of maintenance to reduce the amount of labor consumed on the equipment. The new system requires dramatically less power to run while simultaneously streamlining upkeep.

High Tech for healthy water and a better environment
WEDECO products have been installed in over 250,000 systems worldwide and have over 30 years of experience in technical expertise in the field of ultraviolet and ozone technology. Committed, highly qualified experts in the research & development, production, sales, commercial and technical operations and customer service departments all contribute to the company's success.
Interdisciplinary research groups made up of electrical engineers, process engineers, microbiologists, doctors and physicists, both internal and external, work to continuously develop and optimize WEDECO UV and Ozone systems.
Apart from our work within the company, we also team up with international institutes to work on current research projects. We concentrate on sewage recycling, focusing especially on eliminating pathogens such as cryptosporidium and amoeba. In the USA, we are working on a project that involves introducing purified and sterilized sewage directly into the ground water and in so doing, we aim to raise the ground water from its current low level.
