Drinking Water Disinfection [Case Studies White Paper]

  1. Project Profile: Berea, Ohio Detects Cryptosporidium In Source Water, Installs ETS-UV™ Systems For Protection
    2/3/2017

    First settled in 1836, the City of Berea, Ohio gained acclaim as being the source for dimensioned stone formed from locally quarried sandstone, notably grindstones. The grindstones were shipped to Cleveland by oxcart and, as demand grew, later by a purpose-built railroad to the Big Four Railroad across the Midwest. Now many of the former quarry pits are better known as Baldwin Lake, Wallace Lake and Coe Lake.

  2. The Age Of Peracetic Acid — A Solution To Increasingly Challenging Regulations
    2/1/2016

    While chlorination has long dominated water disinfection, new approaches and technologies have emerged in the wake of disinfection byproduct (DBP) regulations. Could peracetic acid (PAA) be the option that dethrones the king?

  3. Indirect Potable Reuse With UV-Oxidation - Big Spring, Texas (Case Study)
    12/12/2016

    In an effort to reduce reliance on dwindling surface and groundwater supplies in Texas, the Colorado River Municipal Water District (CRMWD) constructed a new Raw Water Production Facility (RWPF) in Big Spring. Big Spring is a 27,000-member community located in West Texas approximately 300 miles west of Dallas. This RWPF treats secondary wastewater to a standard that allows it to be re-introduced directly into the raw water supply for the water treatment plants of Big Spring, Odessa, and other communities in the region.

  4. Hendersonville Water Treatment Plant Features Innovative Disinfection System
    7/24/2018

    Hendersonville Utility District (HUD) serves one of the most populous suburbs of Nashville, Tennessee.

  5. Disinfection Byproducts: Treatment Options And Challenges For Public Water Suppliers
    5/23/2014

    Regulated and emerging disinfection byproducts (DBPs) pose several challenges for water suppliers, but there is a variety of cost-effective cures.

  6. Hassle-Free Chlorination For Large Municipalities
    1/12/2016

    For Robert Stout, general manager of Mid-Arkansas Utilities (MAU), the primary water provider for a three-county rural area spanning 2,220 square miles, the reason to switch to a dry calcium hypochlorite feeding system was simple, “using chlorine gas was not only dangerous for us, it was a big hassle and time-consuming.”

  7. Ozone Resolves Hydrogen Sulfide And Color Issues In Well Water
    4/27/2017

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

  8. The City Of Baxter Minnesota Installs And Starts‐Up An 800 Pound‐Per‐Day Microclor® On‐Site Hypochlorite System In Three Days
    7/24/2018

    The City of Baxter, located in central Minnesota, has always endeavored to deliver superior and reliable service to their customer base with a strong dose of selfreliance.

  9. MIOX Achieves Increased Efficacy Against Biofilm And Legionella Vs. Common Biocides
    2/5/2014

    Comparative disinfection studies using 3 oxidizing biocides and 3 commonly used non-oxidizing biocides against Legionella pneumophilia.

  10. ORP Based Measurement Of Oxidizing Disinfectants In Aqueous Solutions
    9/22/2011

    Oxidizing antimicrobials, such as chlorine, are common disinfectants used to treat water. Test strips, DPD kits, and colorimeters are currently the most popular methods for determining the relative disinfecting power of oxidizing antimicrobial agents in these applications. By Myron L Company
