Drinking Water Treatment Case Studies and White Papers

  1. Think You Know ORP? Get 5 pH/ORP Measurement Tips
    6/29/2017

    Water and wastewater treatment professionals are constantly looking for as much information as possible about the quality of their water. If knowledge is power, then understanding the properties of their water is key to running an effective and efficient facility.

  2. Closed Circuit Desalination Technology Provides Steel Manufacturer ROI In Less Than 60 Days
    8/5/2014

    This leading rod and wire mill requires water for cooling steel and tools in its manufacturing process. Water used for cooling becomes contaminated with metals and lubricants and was therefore being disposed of as waste.

  3. Cheyenne Board Of Public Utilities In Cheyenne, Wyoming Successfully Moves From Calcium Hypochlorite Tablets To Microclor® On-Site Hypochlorite Generation
    7/24/2018

    The Cheyenne Board of Public Utilities (BOPU) operates the water and wastewater systems for the capital of Wyoming which has a population of more than 63,000. Located in the fast growing Front Range Urban Corridor, BOPU is challenged by growth, periodic water scarcity and aging infrastructure.

  4. Smart Water: Remote Sensing
    7/19/2018

    Automated metering systems (AMSs) or “smart meters” can provide valuable data for electric and water utilities. Data analytics can be used to improve customer service, boost conservation, monitor the system, and even forecast demand. An ultimate goal might be to eventually monitor everything from streetlight intensity to fire hydrants.

  5. Meet (Or Beat) EPA Nitrate MCLs With An AdEdge Packaged Nitrate Removal System
    8/22/2012

    When a food processing plant in Lancaster County, PA was forced to supply bottled water to its employees due to high nitrate levels in its raw water, they had no choice but to investigate a nitrate removal solution. In this case study you’ll learn how the plant avoided EPA violations by reducing nitrate contamination levels to below 8 mg/L and simplified continuous monitoring by implementing a new packaged nitrate removal system from AdEdge.

  6. In California, Come Rain Or Shine, Upfront Efficiency Is Always In Style
    3/10/2014

    Caught between a withering drought and floods from winter storms, California faces the worst of both worlds—dealing with scarcity as well as stormwater.  America, and much of the world, is watching to see how this trendsetting state handles those challenges.  After generations of setting America’s style, from cowboys to Beatniks to Beach Boys to Silicon Valley billionaires, California can set perhaps its most important trend yet—it can lead the way to a more water-efficient America.  It has to.  The good news is that it can.

  7. Overcoming Difficult Conditions, Salty Groundwater And Changes In Feedwater Quality
    8/13/2014

    Kibbutz Reim had to convert salty groundwater into a high quality irriga­tion resource in this desert-like region. High recovery was essential to this customer, both because of the limited amount of groundwater available and the challenge of brine disposal from their inland location.

  8. Do You Really Want Manual Calibration?
    9/29/2017

    Many of us who have been around the water industry for a while can recall the days of manually calibrating online analyzers.  The arsenal would include:  a cart of tools, calibration standard, “calibrators”, and “zero sources”.  These tools would only be used a few times a year, if that.  Although the calibration of water analysis instruments should be performed on a monthly basis, most operators would admit to only calibrating them once or twice a year. 

  9. Treatment Of Cyanotoxins In Drinking Water With Activated Carbon
    9/24/2014

    Recently, cyanobacteria and cyanotoxins have become a high profile drinking water quality concern in both the United States and abroad. The combination of weather conditions, agricultural phosphate runoff, and other factors has produced water conditions that have favored the formation of cyanobacteria in surface water supplies.

  10. Rainwater For Reuse As Drinking Water
    1/11/2013

    When McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario built their new Engineering Technology Building, they used the latest state-of-the-art technology not only to achieve LEED Gold certification, but also to create a living laboratory to train students on the building systems of the future.
