Drinking Water Case Studies and White Papers

  1. White Paper: The Leopold Clari-DAF System for Potable Water Clarification
    5/31/2006
    Potable water treatment plants process raw water from ground and surface sources to produce a product that meets all of the regulatory requirements for consumption. Surface water treatment plants are required to have at least filtration, and usually will first remove solids in order to optimize filter performance. This paper presents the Leopold® Clari-DAF™ (Dissolved Air Flotation) system as an excellent choice for potable water clarification. In the Clari-DAF system process, raw water particles are flocculated and separated out of the water by floating them to the surface, rather than settling them to the bottom of a basin
  2. A Sound Approach To Evaluating NRW Loss And Aging Pipelines
    5/18/2018

    As water distribution infrastructure ages, the potential for leaks grows and the need for condition-driven asset management increases proportionally. As with so many other aspects of water operations, planning ahead is key. Good system diagnosis using noninvasive procedures provides an accurate and cost-effective assessment of distribution system integrity, just as noninvasive monitoring of heartbeat, pulse, and blood pressure plays an important role in human health.

  3. A Lesson In DMA Management
    3/28/2018

    White House Utility District (WHUD) is one of the largest water and sewer utilities in the state of Tennessee. While developing a network of pipelines, pumping stations and storage units was challenging, the greater test came in finding access to a plentiful water supply.

  4. Triple Threat Creates A Tough Challenge For Pennsylvania Water Authority
    10/21/2014

    A well-known university, a busy main street, a 100-year-old pipeline and a tight deadline made for a tough challenge for crews attempting to install a 12-inch AMERICAN Fastite pipe in State College, Pennsylvania, this past summer.

  5. Evaluating Total Cost Of Ownership Models When Choosing Advanced Metering And Communications Networks
    8/24/2016

    This white paper describes how utilities can apply TCO evaluation, which takes into account on-going operations costs, replacement and lifecycle costs and personnel, as well as initial capital investment, to get a more complete picture of what systems will actually cost over time. These TCO calculations prove that point-to-multipoint fixed-network solutions can provide the best TCO of any competitive system, including manual, drive-by or mesh fixed-network solutions.

  6. ATP And DNA – Who’s On First?
    10/25/2016

    As some of you may have heard, LuminUltra has partnered with Microbe Detectives to offer DNA testing services to the drinking water and wastewater industries. So “Who’s on First?” (pun intended); simply put, the partnership’s combined technologies tell you who is in a given water or wastewater sample, and how much is in that sample.

  7. Groundwater Remediation - Stockton, California (Case Study)
    12/12/2012

    In the early 1990’s, the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) tetrachloroethylene (PCE), and trichloroethylene (TCE) were discovered in the vicinity of several city water supply wells near the city of Stockton, California.

  8. Water Treatment for Industrial Reuse
    11/5/2014

    By making hypochlorite solution only as needed, the compact Constant Chlor unit brings efficiency, consistency to water reuse system.

  9. Mueller Systems: Chillicothe Municipal Utilities Improves Customer Service, Operational Efficiencies With The Mi.Net™ System
    12/20/2012

    CMU was in the process of replacing more than 4,000 outdated water and electric meters when it determined that the project also presented an ideal opportunity to implement a systemwide advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) network.

  10. Case Study: Aquatech’s Seawater Reverse Osmosis Plant Succeeds In India
    7/23/2010
    India’s first Ultra Mega Power Project (UMPP) at Mundra in Coastal Gujarat, a 4,000 MW coal-fired plant, is owned by Coastal Gujarat Power Limited (CGPL). CGPL will draw seawater from the Mundra coast for various utilities and for their main boiler. Aquatech has been awarded the contract for executing the 4,622 GPM (permeate) capacity seawater reverse osmosis plant (SWRO).
