Drinking Water Case Studies and White Papers

  1. TotalCare Condition Audit Results In Energy Savings Of 80% And Improved Controls
    5/1/2017

    Xylem TotalCare Condition Audit, an inspection and recommendation program that helps plant operators find ways to lower maintenance costs by identifying inefficiencies in the operation of water and wastewater equipment, was elected to audit the American Canyon Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) in California.

  2. Monoclor Chloramine Residual Management System Manages Residual For Problematic 5.5 Million Gallon Tank
    9/23/2016

    Eastern Municipal Water District (EMWD) serves about 142,000 customers in Riverside County, CA. The EMWD service area is one of the largest for any water district in arid southern California. On the drinking water side, EMWD manages two water treatment plants and over 15 reservoirs. With 70% of the district’s water coming from the Metropolitan Water District with chloramine disinfection, EMWD has become reliant on chloramine disinfection to manage long transmission lines and longer detention times.

  3. What You Need To Know About The 3 Types Of Iron Filter Media
    3/8/2017

    Several treatment processes can be used to remove iron and manganese from ground water for potable water supplies. Iron and manganese are typically found in groundwater in a dissolved state and appear clear. While there are various less common treatment methods used (such as ion exchange and ultra-filtration), most treatment systems for iron and manganese oxidize the ferrous state of iron to a ferric state so the solid particles can then be filtered out.

  4. Reducing Costs of Steam Flow Measurement
    9/9/2016

    Traditionally, steam flow has been measured with a differential pressure device. This is typically an orifice plate. However, such devices are inherently volumetric flow measurements. As we have discussed in previous blog posts, changes in pressure and temperature will change the mass flow rate of steam.

  5. Case Study: Improving RO Performance
    7/14/2010
    The client's reverse osmosis system utilized coagulants, antiscalants and cleaners to produce high quality water. With the current chemicals, the reverse osmosis system was cleaned every 90 days due to scaling or deposits.
  6. CCD Technology Succeeds With Well Water Purification
    7/15/2014

    The Kittansett Golf Club in Marion, Massachusetts is rated one of America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses by Golf Digest Magazine.

  7. Ozone Generators Enhance Aquarium’s Water Clarity
    12/9/2015

    The Georgia Aquarium system operates as a closed loop and is able to recapture and reuse over 99% of the water in its exhibits. In order to reuse the majority of the tank water, the aquarium must ensure that waste from its aquatic residents is removed.

  8. Three Categories Of Sustainability
    5/1/2015

    Nearly 4.7 billion gallons of water were saved in 2013 alone through installation of Badger Meter water utility solutions.

  9. Helping The Public See The Magic Of AMI
    2/7/2017

    The benefits of Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) are well known in the water industry, but the public is not as aware of what AMI has to offer. With that in mind, industry experts are looking for ways to educate customers about the value provided by AMI.

  10. White Paper: Impact Of HTA Dosing On Vent Stream Acidity Of An Acid Dosed MSF Plant
    10/13/2006
    As a part of the HTA dosing trial, a vent and distillate sampling system was designed to monitor acidity due to carbon dioxide in the MSF plant. This paper will discuss the results of the HTA dosing trial with respect to the effect on venting and corrosion.
