Drinking Water Treatment Case Studies and White Papers

  1. Two-Way Fixed Network Helps Texas Community Become ‘City Of The Future’
    4/11/2014

    In January 2014, the city of Meadows Place, Texas, became the first city in Fort Bend County to fully convert to an Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) fixed-network system. At the same time, the city also implemented a complete meter change-out for its 1,600 customers. Both projects represent large initiatives for the self-proclaimed “little city” with a population of 4,600 citizens.

  2. Midlothian, TX, Expands Water Treatment Plant With A Safe, Reliable Disinfection System
    7/24/2018

    When the City of Midlothian, Texas, was ready to expand their water treatment plant to accommodate a growing population, they carefully considered and investigated their water disinfection options.

  3. Mass Flow Meter Best Practices For Water Treatment
    12/6/2017

    Air/gas mass flow meters find a variety of applications in many of today’s large urban water treatment plants, both clean water and wastewater. From measuring disinfection gases to controlling air or gas flow in digesters and aeration systems, the proper application, installation and operation of mass flow meters improves process efficiency as well as end product quality while at the same time reducing plant operating costs

  4. Mostaganem Desalination Plant: Algeria
    12/21/2017

    LG Chem NanoH2O™ membranes deliver high quality water for potable use in one of the largest desalination plants in Algeria.

  5. DM Petroleum Operations Relies On FPI Mag Flow Meter For Tough U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve Application
    10/15/2014

    New tests recently performed by DM Petroleum Operations Company with the FPI Mag® Flow Meter from McCrometer continue to confirm the flow meter’s accurate performance and reliability on two rugged Texas brine disposal lines supporting the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR).

  6. 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.

  7. Article: A Field Testing Must Have Device
    7/11/2010
    To take control of our water quality, we first need to know what's in our water. Having portable testing devices to measure important water quality parameters in the field empowers water treatment professionals with improved water quality understanding, enabling them to take more immediate and effective action.

  8. The Science Of Mixing And Improving Water Quality In Water Storage Tanks
    8/6/2015

    Water storage tanks and reservoirs are a critical component of distribution systems, yet they can pose a significant challenge for water utilities as they often have a negative impact on water quality. Water quality problems can develop due to low turnover and/or inadequate mixing resulting in short-circuiting. While the benefits of maximizing tank turnover to minimize water age are generally understood, it is only recently that extensive research on mixing characteristics of storage tanks has been undertaken that has provided insight on what causes water quality problems and expertise in designing inlet/outlet pipe configurations, or mixing systems, to achieve complete mixing and maintain water quality.

  9. Shanghai Investigation Sets BIM Standard On Ningbo Yongxin’s Urban Flood Control Project
    11/1/2016

    In response to the devastation from a 2013 typhoon that caused the Yongxin and Yongjiang rivers in Ningbo, China to overflow, Ningbo Raw Water Group Ltd. commissioned the detailed design and construction of a CNY 178 million emergency sluice pump. The pump would provide flood control measures and mitigate future flood losses to improve urban infrastructure services within the Zhejiang province. To avoid the risk of additional flooding from another typhoon, the Raw Water Group required the urban flood control project to be delivered in a demanding eight-month schedule—a process that would ordinarily take 24 months to complete.

  10. 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.
