    1/24/2019

    The Ganges is a lifeline for millions of people who live within its catchment as a source of water, transport, and food. During the Hindu pilgrimage known as Kumbh Mela, the Ganges plays host to the largest human gathering on Earth as 120 million people arrive to bathe in the river over 49 days.

  2. Is A Containerized Treatment System Right For You?
    1/24/2019

    As industrial facilities continually look for ways to reduce capital costs and decrease installation timelines associated with water treatment and other systems, the practice of containerizing equipment has become more prevalent. A containerized system offers many benefits of lower costs than comparable field erected buildings, faster timelines, and lower field installation requirements. 

  3. Where’s The Fire? Industrial Uses For Fire Hydrant Meters

    There are many options for ensuring accurate billing of water used at established industrial customer locations. But how do municipalities or businesses keep track of water availability and use for intermittent applications or movable access points? We spoke with McCrometer, Inc.’s Marc Bennett for insight into how water utilities and industries can efficiently track and allocate water use for billing or internal accounting purposes in such ad hoc applications.

  4. 5 Steps To Create A Safety Culture In Trench And Excavation Projects

    For a community to have a clean and dependable water supply, it must build and maintain high-quality drinking water and wastewater infrastructure. While some modernization has been achieved, there is still much work to be accomplished.

  5. Design And Care Of Reverse Osmosis Systems, Part 2: Upstream Equipment
    1/14/2019

    The success of a new reverse osmosis (RO) membrane system is often directly related to its pretreatment. The previous section of this article discussed RO design issues and introduced how a pilot study should include a study of its probable pretreatment equipment since the pretreatment performance will directly affect the performance of the RO system. However, piloting the upstream processes can be challenging in sizing these components for the pilot RO unit’s low flow rate.

  6. How Oil & Gas States Did (And Did Not) Protect Land And Water In 2018
    1/11/2019

    Keeping an eye on what happens with domestic oil and gas regulation is a bit like herding cats. We’ve seen encouraging progress on air quality issues related to oil and gas, but an equally critical front that’s seen major action is protection of our land and water resources.

  7. The Role Of IoT And Control Technologies In Water Filtration Systems
    1/10/2019

    With time, labor, and money at a premium, state-of-the-art controls on filtration equipment can ease the burden on operators while improving uptime and lowering costs.

  8. A New Way To Kill Legionella
    1/10/2019

    Advanced oxidation provides an all-in-one solution that supports the complete eradication of Legionella in a water system, while also preventing its regrowth.

  9. Getting Smart About America’s Potable Water Problem
    1/10/2019

    When it comes to fixing pipeline infrastructure, the pressure is on — but is it being measured? Intelligent pipe solutions provide flow and pressure data for improved service and water quality.

  10. PFAS — A National Problem With Personal Costs
    1/10/2019

    Even as the drinking water crisis draws more attention, the true impact of PFAS exposure may be largely underestimated, necessitating louder calls for action.
