Wireless PRV Monitoring Application Note
Pressure reducing valves (PRVs) are used throughout water distribution systems to reduce pipeline pressure to a predetermined set point. This decreases water loss and prevents pipe breaks.
Application Note: Vertical Profiling Safeguards Drinking Water And Sheds Light On Cyanobacteria
A search for algal toxins in North Carolina reservoirs has evolved into an ongoing early warning system for three important drinking water reservoirs—which serve two large cities—and yielded a greater understanding of the dynamics of blue-green algae, or cyanobacteria, in the state’s reservoir system.

Application Note: Miami Conservancy District Uses Nitrate Screening As Conjunctive Management Tool
Tasked with monitoring a watershed covering nearly 4,000 square miles, almost 2,300 miles of rivers and streams, and a huge aquifer that provides drinking water for more than 1.2 million people, water quality monitoring specialists at the Miami Conservancy District (MCD) in Dayton, Ohio, have their hands full.

New Water Turbidity Measurement Technology — The US Experience
The amount of insoluble matter present in drinking water is an essential quality indicator. Silt, sand, bacteria, spores, and chemical precipitates all contribute to the cloudiness or turbidity of water. Drinking water (DW) which is highly turbid can be unpalatable and unsafe. Consumption of even low concentrations of certain bacteria and other microorganisms can cause serious health effects. Consequently, an accurate and sensitive measurement of turbidity is vital for ensuring that drinking water is free of these contaminants.
Protecting Pumps From Dead Head Conditions
The C445 motor management relay offers the most configurable protection options in the industry, with features specifically designed to protect critical pumps from costly damages due to dead-head and other underloaded or starved pump conditions.
Determination Of Pesticide Residues In Tea
In 2012, Americans consumed well over 79 billion servings of tea, which is just over 3.60 billion gallons.
Application Note: Busseron Creek Watershed Partnership Addresses Concerns In A Rural Watershed
As with other watershed organizations, the
Busseron Creek Watershed Partnership
(BCWP) exists because of surface water
quality degradation. In this case, those
waters drain 163,231 acres of a watershed
that crosses the boundaries of Vigo, Clay,
Green, and Sullivan counties in West-
Central Indiana. By YSI
Operations And LRV Calculations At Southwest Pipeline Project Drinking Water Treatment Facility
This presentation will discuss the operation of a 4 MGD pressurized two-stage Ultrafiltration (UF) plant over a 14 month period at the Oliver-Mercer-North Dunn (OMND) Drinking Water Treatment Facility, North Dakota.
Application Note: Troubleshooting A pH Electrode
Many factors affect performance of a pH electrode. When performance degrades, it is always a challenge for the analyst to identify the cause. Common troubleshooting procedures, which include evaluation of slope, electrode drift, time response, and accuracy, take considerable time. By Thermo Fisher Scientific
Application Note: Water Flows From The Golden Hills Of California
Each morning John Johnson drives the few miles from his smalltown home in northern California to the Center at Pardee Reservoir. Nestled among the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range, the reservoir is a long 100 miles away from San Francisco Bay. By YSI
