Drinking Water Treatment Case Studies and White Papers

  1. AMERICAN Pipe And Valves Ensure Georgia Project Flows With Ease
    6/29/2016

    The estimated $30-million West Side Loop 48-inch Replacement Project is one of three capital projects being conducted by the Cobb County-Marietta Water Authority to provide additional water to western Cobb County and Paulding County in Georgia. For the project, a 48-year-old, 36-inch pre-stressed concrete cylinder pipe (PCCP) that recently failed is being replaced with 48-inch ductile iron pipe.

  2. 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.
  3. NE Alabama Water District Case Study
    12/22/2011
    Northeast Alabama Water District (NEAW) services 15,200 connections within 2,052 square miles, resulting in a very large distribution area.
  4. Can An Anti-Microbial Agent Extend The Life Of Filter Media?
    12/16/2015

    Harmsco Filtration Products conducted a test to evaluate the performance of the Anti-microbial filter media verses Standard filter media. Two cartridges were compared, both were manufactured with 4 oz filter media, one of the cartridge’s media contained Silver Zeolite fibers which inhibit the growth of biologicals in and on the filter cartridge.

  5. Project Profile: Lakeview Estates Community Durand, MI AD26 Arsenic, Iron & Manganese System
    5/15/2009
    In August, 2007 AdEdge Technologies, Inc. was selected among other vendors by Tri-County Drilling to supply an arsenic, iron, and manganese treatment system for the Lakeview Estates MHP in Durand, Michigan. By Adedge Technologies Inc.
  6. Mobile Membrane Systems Provide Emergency Response
    9/21/2016

    When emergencies inevitably arise, municipal operators need to be prepared to respond immediately to restore services in order to provide safe, reliable water to their customers. Take for example the City of Cisco, Texas.

  7. 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.

  8. Retrofit Significantly Reduces Backwash Cycle Interval, Duration And Water Use For Georgia Utility
    5/1/2017

    The North Columbus Resource Facility recently completed a $12-million replacement of its settled water filtration, removing the existing Wheeler filters, their three-part media and 10-inch poured concrete underdrains, which were no longer efficient.

  9. U Of I Urbana-Champaign Implements Remote Monitoring System
    8/23/2017

    The Utility Distribution team at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign manage the water system which serves the entire campus. The University purchases water from Illinois American Water which is distributed across the campus for uses as diverse as chemistry labs, agricultural research, and competitive swimming complexes.

  10. ATP And DNA – Who’s On First?
    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.
