    Enactment of the Long Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule and the Stage 2 Disinfectant-Disinfection Byproduct Rule (D/DBPR) will require both large and small drinking water utilities to reduce total organic carbon (TOC), Cryptosporidium, and disinfection byproducts (DBPs) in the treated drinking water distributed to the public.

  2. Case Study: Water Supplier Ensures DBP Compliance With UV254 Organic Monitoring
    3/18/2009
    Mohawk Valley Water Authority (MVWA) is a progressive supplier of potable water. With source water from the Adirondack Mountains, MVWA works to improve on nature and provide superior water quality, always striving to meet or exceed drinking water standards. Like many other surface water sources, MVWA’s water supply is rich with natural organic matter (NOM). Unfortunately, growing research has demonstrated that NOM in water when combined with chlorine leads to the formation of potentially harmful disinfection by-products.

  8. ORP Sensors – Are They Really The Best Thing “Since Sliced Bread”?
    12/12/2016

    There have been many publications lately that claim universal appeal of the ORP sensors and their applicability across the board. This concerns me, because the authors sometimes forget to mention some well-known practical limitations of the method, let alone the realities of water treatment applications potentially influencing the sensor performance.

  9. How Larger Flow Meters Speak Volumes
    11/13/2013

    As the price of water continues to increase, errors in flow measurement are magnified for distribution networks that transport large volumes of water. These systems often incorporate meters over 48 inches in diameter, which can be a challenge to calibrate. Learn how choosing the proper calibration method can ensure the most accurate measurements.
