    The City of Paramount conducted a pilot study for arsenic, manganese and iron treatment system at their Well 15 site. The onsite pilot test was designed to demonstrate the performance of the Loprest Water Treatment Company treatment process proposed for the new treatment plant.

  4. Coastside County Water District, California Drives System Reliability And Sustainability With Microclor® On‐Site Hypochlorite Generation, Encore® Metering Pumps And PolyBlend® Polymer Activation
    7/18/2018

    Located in northern California, the Coastside County Water District (CCWD) provides treated water to the scenic town of Half Moon Bay and several unincorporated communities in the area. The system is served by two treatment plants, the Nunes Water Treatment Plant (4.5 MGD) and Denniston Creek Water Treatment Plant (1.0 MGD) and water is distributed through about 100 miles of transmission and distribution pipe.

  5. Upgrading From Gas Chlorine To On-Site Hypochlorite Generation To Improve Safety And System Resilience
    9/20/2018

    By replacing gas chlorine with on-site hypochlorite generation, Nashville was able to improve the safety and longevity of its water plants to accommodate the growth of the “Heart of Country Music” far into the future. At a recent water conference, Glen Doss, Treatment Plant Manager stated, “In 2016, the last gas chlorine railcar left to large applause.” 

  6. Eliminating A Silent Killer — A Critical Review On The Viability Of Decentralized Arsenic Removal Systems For Rural Communities
    9/20/2018

    Arsenic is a global environmental health issue. Since it was recognized in the nineties many techniques have been developed on the remediation on arsenic contaminated drinking water. Solving people’s exposure through drinking water to arsenic is, however, a complex problem.

  7. How To Know It’s Time To Replace Your RO Membrane
    9/5/2017

    Reverse osmosis, or RO, is one of the finest technologies to purify water containing high total dissolved solids (TDS) levels of more than 500 ppm. Reverse osmosis plant exporters explain the technology as a separation technology where dissolved and invisible impurities in water are separated with the help of semi-permeable membrane or RO membrane that works under high pressure.

  8. 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.

  9. Upgrading DWTP Operations In Kansas With The QbD1200 TOC Analyzer
    7/26/2017

    For drinking water treatment plants (DWTPs), the EPA’s Disinfection Byproduct Rule (DBP) is a way of life. Unfortunately, for many facilities the equipment and operations haven’t evolved with the regulation mandates, leaving facilities in a tough spot. For a DWTP in Douglas County, KS, its challenges with accurate TOC measurement and testing, along with expensive calibrations and extended downtime with its prior TOC analyzer led it to trialing the Hach QbD1200 TOC Analyzer. Read the full case study to learn more.
