    10/25/2016

    As some of you may have heard, LuminUltra has partnered with Microbe Detectives to offer DNA testing services to the drinking water and wastewater industries. So “Who’s on First?” (pun intended); simply put, the partnership’s combined technologies tell you who is in a given water or wastewater sample, and how much is in that sample.

  3. Ohio Water Plant Finds Effective Alternative To Chlorine Gas
    5/14/2013

    For many years, Huber Heights, OH, searched for an effective and affordable way to eliminate gaseous chlorine (Cl2) use at its 4.46 MGD Needmore Road Water Treatment Plant. An innovative dry calcium hypochlorite makeup and delivery system now provides a safer disinfection method for operators and the community.

  4. Town Of Kittery, Maine Relies On Lime Feeders For pH Control For More Than 25 years
    6/26/2017

    The Francis L. Hatch water filtration plant is in the coastal town in York county Maine and has an average capacity of 2.6 MGD. This is a surface water plant that utilizes hydrated or “slaked” lime (calcium hydroxide) to maintain the pH level around 7.0. For over 25 years, the district has used two of the UGSI Chemical Feed model 32‐055 Feeders to mix dry hydrated lime with water to create a lime slurry solution that can then be added to the finished water treatment.

  5. Sensing The Future: Water Technology’s 'Holy Grail'
    2/24/2014

    Real-time contaminant detection, featuring a network of sensors throughout the distribution network, is poised to revolutionize the water industry.

  6. Guaynabo WTP In Puerto Rico Saves Thousands With UV 254 Monitoring Package
    10/22/2013

    Dealing with fluctuating water sources is not an easy task for plant operators. Seasonal variation, heavy rain fall or accidental contamination events change the raw water quality, requiring immediate attention. This is a familiar scenario for Facility Manager, Nancy Ma. Cáceres Acosta at the Los Filtros Water Treatment Plant in Puerto Rico. She has been producing highquality water for 256,000 local residents, receiving surface water from the Guaynabo and Bayamon River

  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. MEMCOR® Continuous Microfiltration System Maximizes Water Resources For The City Of Scottsdale, Arizona
    3/26/2013

    The desert community of Scottsdale, Arizona had no natural surface water sources and a decreasing groundwater supply. Scottsdale had historically treated and disposed of its wastewater.

  9. White Paper: The Effect of Low Uniformity Coefficient Anthracite On Dual Media Filtration
    3/20/2006
    The Philadelphia Suburban Water Company replaced the support gravel and media in four of the dual media filters at the Pickering West Water Treatment Plant in Phoenixville, PA...
  10. More Than Precise Measuring
    5/15/2009

    Electromagnetic flowmeters (magmeters) presently make up 30% of the European flowmeter market. Even though the measuring principle has been in use for more than 30 years, industry experts still figure there is annual growth of more than 2%. This can be attributed to the versatility and largely independent nature of viscosity, density, pressure, and temperature of the flowing medium. By KROHNE, Inc.
