Drinking Water Case Studies and White Papers

  1. Treatment of Groundwater Contaminated With 1,4-Dioxane - Tucson, Arizona (Case Study)
    3/18/2015

    The TrojanUVPhox™ installation at Tucson's Advanced Oxidation Process Water Treatment Facility treats 1,4-dioxane and produces water that is blended and then treated at the neighboring Tucson Airport Remediation Project facility. This purified water is supplied to nearly 50,000 end users.

  2. Small Cities Are Big Smart Water Proponents
    4/12/2017

    A rising number of small cities are adopting smart water meter technology as a way to cut costs.

  3. Antiscalant Impacts Water Reclamation Efforts
    12/17/2014

    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. 

  4. AltaPac™ AP-II Ultrafiltration Membrane Case Study
    12/23/2014

    Cibola is a small community located in Southern Arizona along the Colorado River. With a growing population, the community decided to install a centralized water system to replace individual wells.

  5. The Science Of Mixing And Improving Water Quality In Water Storage Tanks
    8/6/2015

    Water storage tanks and reservoirs are a critical component of distribution systems, yet they can pose a significant challenge for water utilities as they often have a negative impact on water quality. Water quality problems can develop due to low turnover and/or inadequate mixing resulting in short-circuiting. While the benefits of maximizing tank turnover to minimize water age are generally understood, it is only recently that extensive research on mixing characteristics of storage tanks has been undertaken that has provided insight on what causes water quality problems and expertise in designing inlet/outlet pipe configurations, or mixing systems, to achieve complete mixing and maintain water quality.

  6. Midlothian, TX, Expands Water Treatment Plant With A Safe, Reliable Disinfection System
    7/24/2018

    When the City of Midlothian, Texas, was ready to expand their water treatment plant to accommodate a growing population, they carefully considered and investigated their water disinfection options.

  7. Poison In The Water: How To Defeat Toxic Algae
    5/18/2015

    Like many municipalities, Hamilton, Ontario, is wary of harmful algal blooms and toxic cyanobacteria. To mitigate the threat and protect drinking water, a proactive, risk-based plan was developed.

  8. Automation Solutions For Fixed-Bed Filters
    2/5/2015

    Handwheel or automated process valve? The worldwide trend is clearly moving towards automation, because it reduces energy and water consumption, especially rinsing water, and increases plant availability. Pneumatic automation of a fixed-bed filter is a good example of this.

  9. Activated Carbon Applications for Drinking Water Production
    3/24/2014

    Water is an essential element of life: it accounts for 70% to 80% of the weight of a human being. The quality of water is an important parameter that affects all aspects of the well-being of ecosystems and mankind, from human health, to food production, economic activities and biodiversity.

  10. Richland Springs Special Utility District, Texas Case Study
    8/14/2012

    The Richland Special Utility District found that naturally-occurring radionuclides in their raw water source exceeded Maximum Contaminant Levels (MCL’s) for Gross Alpha Emitters and Combined Radium. The district selected Water Remediation Technology's Z-88 Radium Removal Process as a cost-effective solution to reduce the gross alpha and radium content. In this case study, learn how the water quality now successfully meets regulatory requirements.
