Drinking Water Disinfection [Case Studies White Paper]

  1. Technical Support And Service Are Key In A Place “Way Outside Of Ordinary”

    Rangely is a remote town with a population of just over 2,200 people located in the upper northwest area of Colorado, thirteen miles from the Utah border. During the course of their routine maintenance, operators noticed problems with a distribution pump. Read the full project profile to learn how Process Solutions’ trained service technicians were able to walk them through a series of diagnostics to further isolate the problem and get the system was back up and running in a short period of time.

  2. Taste and Odor Treatment with UV-Oxidation - Mississauga, Ontario (Case Study)

    The Region of Peel is the second-largest Canadian municipality after the city of Toronto, and draws its drinking water from Lake Ontario — the smallest of the five Great Lakes. To meet the projected population increase from 1,160,000 people currently to an estimated 1,571,000 people in 2031, the Region decided to upgrade and expand its water treatment plant. To deal with seasonal taste and odor compounds produced by algae blooms in Lake Ontario, the membrane plant will be equipped with a Trojan UV-Oxidation system.

  3. Ozone Resolves Hydrogen Sulfide And Color Issues In Well Water

    A potable water plant in Eastern Angelina County, Texas,  serves over 2,000 rural customers.

  4. Monoclor Chloramine Residual Management System Manages Residual For Problematic 5.5 Million Gallon Tank

    Eastern Municipal Water District (EMWD) serves about 142,000 customers in Riverside County, CA. 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.

  5. Treatment of Groundwater Contaminated With 1,4-Dioxane - Tucson, Arizona (Case Study)

    The TrojanUVPhox™ installation at Tucson's Advanced Oxidation Process Water Treatment Facility treats 1,4-dioxane and produces water that is blended and then treated at the neighboring Tucson Airport Remediation Project facility. This purified water is supplied to nearly 50,000 end users.

  6. Filtration Avoidance in Surface Water - North Tahoe, California (Case Study)

    With its mountain beauty and deep, clear waters, Lake Tahoe is one of the most popular vacation spots in the California/Nevada area.

  7. Theoretical Operation Of High-Efficiency Ultraviolet Water Treatment Chamber

    The NeoTech Aqua ReFleX™ water purification chambers are the most efficient and compact units available today. They require an order of magnitude less energy and less than 25% of the system volume to achieve the same or better purification result as competing chambers. This is the first in a series of three white papers explaining the benefits of these systems. By J. R. Cooper, Ph.D, NeoTech Aqua Solutions, Inc.

  8. Stormwater Treatment and Reuse - Toronto, Ontario (Case Study)

    Sherbourne Common is an innovative waterfront park that provides the public with green recreational space along Lake Ontario in a former industrial area. 

  9. Direct Filtration Of Spring Water

    The Franklin Water Treatment Plant, near the Utah/Idaho state border, serves approximately 600 residents. Traditionally, water was drawn from springs and chlorinated.

  10. Municipality Removes Biofilm, Improves Water Quality, Lowers Dosage With MIOX

    Looking to reduce potential disinfection byproducts issues that new and difficult regulations were requiring, a Tennessee municipality began investigating alternative water treatment disinfection methods in an effort to reduce the potential liability (RMP) involved with using and storing gas chlorine. Within months of switching to a mix of oxidants (MOS), a difference was noted in the systems residual, residual was no longer dead spotting in low flow areas, and much higher residual was noted in areas that had been difficult to maintain At the end of the first year of operation the municipality had also documented a reduction in their disinfection byproducts formations, specifically both TTHMs and HAAs, which were both reduced by 50% in direct comparison with the quarterly results from the previous year.
