Drinking Water Treatment Case Studies and White Papers

  1. QUA UF Membranes Provide Pretreatment for Seawater Reverse Osmosis (SWRO) System
    12/1/2015

    Hinduja National Power Corporation Ltd. (HNPCL) constructed a 1040 MW coal fired power plant at Vishakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh, India. The power generated from the plant is intended to supply to Andhra Pradesh, as well as to other states through interstate transmission system.

  2. ORP Based Measurement Of Oxidizing Disinfectants In Aqueous Solutions
    9/22/2011

    Oxidizing antimicrobials, such as chlorine, are common disinfectants used to treat water. Test strips, DPD kits, and colorimeters are currently the most popular methods for determining the relative disinfecting power of oxidizing antimicrobial agents in these applications. By Myron L Company

  3. East Bay Municipal Utility District Successfully Manages Chloramine Residual In Ten Million Gallon Reservoir With The Process Solutions, Inc. Monoclor™ Chloramine Management System
    7/10/2018

    Located on the eastern side of the San Francisco Bay, the East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) treats and distributes water to over 1.3 million customers in Alameda and Contra Costa counties.

  4. Water Treatment Plant Solves Taste And Odor Problems And High Toxin Levels
    3/20/2015

    Phoenix is one of the country’s fastest growing metropolitan areas and has one of the most arid desert climates. Population growth coupled with increasingly stringent water regulations pushed the city to proactively address future water supply concerns. The decision was made to build the Lake Pleasant Water Treatment Plant (WTP) and include oxidation and disinfection treatment barriers.

  5. Monitoring Raw Water Turbidity – What’s Important!
    3/27/2018

    Monitoring raw water turbidity is important to inform the operator of significant changes in water quality, especially turbidity, allowing the operator to make process chemistry changes to respond to the increasing raw water turbidity. Variations in raw water present turbidity measurement challenges different from those found elsewhere in a typical treatment plant.

  6. From Zero To 2 Million
    4/29/2016

    Since 1977, Endress+Hauser has produced over two million electromagnetic flowmeters. That is more than any other manufacturer. “This magic number stands for high-quality measuring technology and, above all, satisfied customers in all kinds of industries,” says Bernd-Josef Schäfer, Managing Director of Endress+Hauser Flowtec AG, the center of competence for flow measuring technology.

  7. Biological Ammonia Removal From California Groundwater Source
    6/12/2018

    A novel biological oxidation filtration treatment process was evaluated for removal of ammonia from a California groundwater source. In addition to ammonia, this groundwater had other contaminants such as iron, manganese, methane, hydrogen sulfide odor, color, high organic carbon, etc. As such, more conventional treatment processes such as breakpoint chlorination were deemed infeasible, and biological treatment was the preferred treatment alternative.

  8. Case Study: Ambitious Water Quality Study Could Guide Development For Years
    5/25/2006
    The City of Kissimmee, Fla., has embarked on an ambitious water quality study that could provide a road map for development in the fast-growing tourist mecca – and save millions of dollars as the city begins to comply with water quality regulations
  9. Aquatech’s Seawater Reverse Osmosis Plant Succeeds In India
    7/23/2010
    India’s first Ultra Mega Power Project (UMPP) at Mundra in Coastal Gujarat, a 4,000 MW coal fired plant, is owned by Coastal Gujarat Power Limited (CGPL), a Tata Power group company.
  10. Granular Activated Carbon Removes PFOA From Drinking Water
    12/7/2016

    In the fall of 2015, a small village on the border of Vermont in New York State, tested positive for Perfluorinated Compounds (PFCs), specifically Perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOA), in the municipal drinking water. The influent levels of PFOA in the water were above 600 ng/L, and thus considered harmful to village residents. Realizing that PFOA was on the U.S. EPA Contaminant Candidate List, the Village solicited the services of engineering firm CT Male Associates to investigate treatment options and provide a treatment system.
