  1. Historic Town Remedies FOG Problem

    Among the pump stations managed by Branford, CT, is a long-term problematic station located at Burban Street. There were two primary problems at this station: 1) clogging from modern day trash and raggy, stringy materials, and 2) fats, oils, and grease (FOG) from a nearby nursing home and restaurants, which accumulate and float on the water surface, resulting in a horrendous mess.

  2. Wet Well Wonder In A Deep Sewer Tunnel

    This wet well is a critical piece of a system designed to intercept wet weather overflows, and it demands powerful, high-quality pumps to handle the load. Designed to reduce environmental impacts resulting from Combined Sewer Overflows (CSOs) in Columbus, Ohio, the Olentangy-Scioto- Interceptor-Sewer Augmentation Relief Sewer (OARS) is the key component in meeting this goal. This sewer tunnel will intercept wet weather overflows that currently empty into the Scioto River and instead carry the flows to the city’s Jackson Pike and Southerly wastewater treatment plants.

  3. Building An Invisible And Soundless Power Plant

    The Villoresi Channel, located north of Milan, was designed with the main purpose of agricultural irrigation while providing water to the city of Milan. The paths running along the canal were also used for recreational purposes and cross through some of the most beautiful natural parks in Lombardy.

  4. Mixing It Up In Michigan

    The Ypsilanti Community Utilities Authority (YCUA) employs a total of 30 mixers in its aeration tanks as part of an anoxic nutrient removal process, and the mixers were failing. The mixers were old, inefficient, and starting to fail, so YCUA elected to replace them with Flygt 4320 mixers. Read the full case study to learn how the potential energy savings for YCUA could easily approach $1 million over a decade.

  5. Significant Upgrades Enable City Of Atherton To Meet State’s DNR Discharge Requirements

    Built in the 1980s, Little Blue Valley Sewer District operates Atherton, which was designed to reduce the primary process chain to preliminary bar screening and aerated grit removal, while relying solely on secondary treatment performed in four, standalone 42-ft by 400-ft aeration/clarification basins. Read the full case study to learn how upgrading the activated sludge process with a combination of Xylem’s Flygt pumps and mixers created a solution for the city’s sewer district.

  6. Sticking with Innovation That Works

    With a population of about 15,000, Steinbach is the third largest city in Manitoba and one of the fastest growing areas in Canada. The current system has been operating since 1993, an eternity in the world of technology. Because the wastewater department was already familiar with operating the existing Xylem/Flygt M&C SCADA system with Aquaview software and APP controllers, they decided to inquire what new technologies the company could offer. Read the full case study to learn more.

  7. DC Water And Xylem Celebrate The Installation Of The First Intelligent Wastewater Pumping System In North America

    Xylem, a leading global water technology company, today presented to DC Water the first installation in North America of Flygt Concertor, the world’s first wastewater pumping system with integrated intelligence.  DC Water, one of the nation’s leading water and wastewater innovators, has a well-established track record of piloting and adopting leading-edge technologies to evolve its operations into smarter water infrastructure for the benefit of its customers and the community.

  8. Superstorm Sandy Spurs NJDOT To Construct Stormwater Pump Stations

    In 2012 when Superstorm Sandy hit the New Jersey coastline, it devastated Route 35, a critical flood evacuation route, just north of Island Beach State Park. With this critical coastal evacuation route severely compromised, the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) took immediate steps to restore safe travel.

  9. No Compromise On Reliability: A WWTP Turns On A Dime

    Once discovering its main pump station was at risk, a critical Canadian wastewater treatment plant quickly set up a large bypass pumping system to allow the replacement of pump motors.
