Drinking Water Case Studies and White Papers

  1. Antiscalant Impacts Water Reclamation Efforts

    Water reuse efforts in the West Coast are a priority and have the Ground Water Replenishing System (GWRS) of the Orange County Water District (OCWD) utilizing new technologies for water conservation. 

  2. Pilot Test For Arsenic, Color And Iron Shows Great Results

    The City of Riverdale was running into issues with arsenic, color and iron treatment system at their Well 4 site, so they conducted a pilot test with the help of Loprest.

  3. Optioneering Helps MidCoast Water Transform Gloucester Water Network Into A Reliable, Efficient System

    MidCoast Water delivers water and sewerage services to 40,000 households in the Manning, Great Lakes, and Gloucester communities of New South Wales in Australia. It also supplies 8 billion liters of water a year to Karuah in the south, Crowdy Head in the north, and Gloucester in the west.

  4. Reducing Effluent Waste While Using Less Energy With CCD

    A pesticide manufacturing plant in Gujarat, India produces up to 6,000 metric tons per year of various pesticides for agricultural use.

  5. Port Of Morehead City Cracks Down

    Matchpoint was hired to conduct one day of leak detection services for the Port of Morehead City. The objective of the survey was to find a 1 to 2 gallon per minute leak that the Port highlighted as a concern on over 3,500 feet of pipe.

  6. Orchestrating Corrosion Control With Phosphate Analyzers

    As with so many other drinking water treatment processes, corrosion control demands a delicate balance among multiple factors. From the water-purifying chlorine that increases corrosion risk, to alternative strategies that reduce corrosion — using either elevated pH or phosphates — keeping corrosion under control requires sound strategy and reliable execution. Here are several approaches to addressing those conditions, along with options for better, more effective corrosion control.

  7. Rinse, Repeat: The Rise Of Water Reuse

    I may not be “old school” in the water/wastewater industry, but I have been around long enough to see a number of ideas graduate from sideshow to center stage. In wastewater, the topic in the spotlight at the moment is water reuse — and its role won’t soon diminish. Depending on your part of the world, it will sooner or later be the norm — but the smart ones are planning ahead.

  8. Extreme Water Filtering – Consider High-Flow Systems To Save Costs And Reduce Waste

    In an era when everything is done to the extreme – from sports, to home makeovers, to weather predictions – it should come as no surprise that the world of water filtering has joined the crowd. “Extreme” filtering, so to speak, is achieved through the use of high-flow cartridge systems – smaller designs that are able to handle much higher water volumes and pressures at lower costs and with less maintenance.

  9. MIOX Achieves Increased Efficacy Against Biofilm And Legionella Vs. Common Biocides

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

  10. How To Move The Needle Of Energy Consumption

    Summer is here, and with it rising temperatures and energy costs.  In recent weeks, political unrest in Iraq has caused fuel prices to climb to near record highs, and no relief is in sight. Future-minded water utilities realize any decision made today to help offset future energy consumption is both economically and environmentally wise. With that in mind, utilities across the country are desperately searching for green products and innovations to help them conserve precious resources in the future, and iron pipe is one tool that can help them accomplish this.
