Drinking Water Case Studies and White Papers

  1. Simple Treatment Solution For Surface Water Source
    3/4/2016

    A Montana Water District was under an Administrative Order of Compliance by the EPA to install filtration to comply with the Surface Water Treatment Rule (LT2ESWTR) or possibly loose their only water source, the Missouri River.

  2. Seawater Treatment Yields Process Water For Power Plant
    10/27/2017

    A power plant in Egypt needed to use seawater from the nearby Red Sea as feed water for its plant processes. This case study shows how Fluence designed and built a new seawater demineralization plant that includes an ultrafiltration pretreatment, reverse osmosis, and mixed bed ion exchange.

  3. Straining To Make Diaphragm Operated Automatic Control Valves Effective
    2/19/2014

    Diaphragm Operated Automatic Control Valves (ACVs) require reasonably clean water to function effectively and reliably.  Having a strainer upstream of the actual ACV is very important, but also having a smaller strainer located at the inlet of the pilot system on the ACV is also well advised.

  4. Ozone Makes A Comeback
    10/8/2014

    Ozone has been a proven effective method of water treatment and disinfection for well over a century.

  5. ‘You’ve Come A Long Way, Baby’: The Making Of The Modern Day Fire Hydrant
    9/22/2016

    This article is in support of the Imagine a Day Without Water campaign — a national online movement to raise awareness about the value of water and water infrastructure.

  6. Choosing The Right Residential Water Metering Technology
    10/30/2017

    Accurate and dependable water metering is more important than ever for today’s water utilities. Although utility managers are tasked with meeting tight budgets, it is imperative for utilities to invest in their water metering infrastructure. When making meter selection decisions, utilities must consider several factors. These include service size, application, and expected flow rates. There is no “one type fits all” application when it comes to meter technologies.

  7. Improving The Quality Of Tertiary Effluent For Indirect Potable Reuse With Geographic Constraints
    4/24/2017

    The Mazzei Sidestream Venturi Injection – Pipeline Flash Reactor System provides a feasible alternative for dissolution of ozone at the Clark County Water Reclamation District (CCWRD) in Las Vegas, because it allowed for flexibility in basin design to meet geographic site constraints.

  8. Groundwater Replenishment System - Orange County, California (Case Study)
    6/15/2009

    The full-scale advanced treatment system takes filtered secondary effluent from the neighboring OCSD treatment plant and converts it to water that exceeds all drinking water quality standards. The 70 million gallon per day (MGD) system consists of microfiltration (MF), reverse osmosis (RO), and the TrojanUVPhox™ UV-oxidation/disinfection system.

  9. Ultrapure Boiler Water Production From Municipal Wastewater
    1/21/2013

    The term wastewater can be applied to a wide range of water sources from municipal sewage to storm runoff to industrial discharge water. By Michael Sheedy, Vice President of Technology and George Di Falco, Marketing Communications, Eco-Tec Inc.

  10. U Of I Urbana-Champaign Implements Remote Monitoring System
    8/23/2017

    The Utility Distribution team at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign manage the water system which serves the entire campus. The University purchases water from Illinois American Water which is distributed across the campus for uses as diverse as chemistry labs, agricultural research, and competitive swimming complexes.
