Drinking Water Measurement

  1. Claros Data Management: Big-Picture Data Brings Clarity To Water Treatment Efficiency

    Dealing with the chemistry, biology, and engineering of local source waters and their seasonal variations is quite familiar to experienced water treatment plant (WTP) operators. It is monitoring, analyzing, and reporting WTP performance under changing conditions that gets complicated. That is where a comprehensive Data Management Solution (Claros WIMS Water Information Management System and Claros Collect) can prove its value, especially if labor resources are limited.

  2. Automating Field Readings For Better Water Distribution Management

    Water distribution systems can be just as critical to the ultimate delivery of high-quality water as central water treatment plant (WTP) operations, even if the cost and complexity of monitoring distributed water quality can be proportionally higher. Monitoring field-collected data with the same timeliness and accuracy as online plant instrumentation goes a long way toward safeguarding consumer satisfaction.

  3. Instrumental Solutions For Better Process And Data Management

    Generating accurate data is essential for maintaining water treatment plant (WTP) process efficiency and regulatory compliance. Here are multiple considerations for automating critical instrument monitoring and management activities that can help generate reliable data as a means of supporting timely decision-making, accurate compliance, and maximum confidence in WTP performance.

  4. HVAC Efficiency – The Benefits Of Optimizing Your Heating And Cooling

    There has been no shortage of studies, discussions and debates surrounding the concept of energy efficiency over the past 40 years. Scientific studies suggest a relationship between greenhouse gas emissions and global climate change, strengthening the belief that human activity was harming the environment.

  5. Electromagnetic Meters And Ultrasonic Meters — A Comparison

    Water and wastewater professionals rely on accurate flow measurements for process operation and regulatory compliance. Selecting the best flow meter for each application is essential to obtaining accurate flow data.

  6. Remote Monitoring Helps Growers, Water Districts Do Their Jobs

    Propeller flow meters have long been an important tool for agricultural irrigation management. As water scarcity and resource management have become increasingly critical, getting the most timely, accurate readings available from those meters is becoming more important than ever. Here is how growers and water conservation districts (WCDs) are each getting the best of both worlds for their own purposes.

  7. Alaska WTP Takes Control Of Water Quality With UV254

    With the ongoing concern about water quality in Alaska, Philip Downing, the Remote Maintenance Worker for South East Alaska Regional Health Consortium, offered a new approach to a plant’s ability to continuously monitor and adjust treatment processes in response to changes in raw water quality.

  8. Rapid Microbial Assessment Following A Case Of Legionellosis

    A case of legionellosis an illness acquired from Legionella bacteria, which can grow in cooling water and potable water systems was diagnosed at a medical retirement home.

  9. White House Utility District Reduces Costs By Over $1 Million

    In 2007, White House Utility District (WHUD), a water utility serving approximately 90,000 consumers and businesses in Tennessee, faced a dilemma: how to meet a projected growing demand for water within the budget and capital constraints faced by municipal and mid-sized utilities everywhere.

  10. Clamp-On Ultrasonic Flowmeters: How They Measure Up

    Not cool enough in summer. Not warm enough in winter. Guests staying at a prestigious country club in New York state complained regularly about the air conditioning and heating of their luxury suites and apartments. The geothermal heat exchange system serving this facility had never, in fact, been fully functional.
