Drinking Water Treatment Resources

  1. How Big Is Big Data Among Water Utilities?
    9/4/2018

    A survey of water utilities conducted by Black & Veatch reveals to what degree and how rapidly (or not) data analytics are being implemented in the real world.

  2. Basin Nozzle Manifold Contacting System Installation Remediates Taste And Odor Compounds, Meets Disinfection Goals
    9/1/2018

    A water quality audit revealed that two of the largest drinking water plants in the City of Montreal were out of compliance with Quebec’s latest water quality rules. Both drinking water facilities were located in heavily populated areas; consequently, plant modifications had to be accomplished within their existing infrastructure footprints.

  3. Update And Upgrade Of Ozone Dissolution System At Southwest Water Treatment Plant
    9/1/2018

    The burden of the unavailability of replacement parts for the aging generators and the FBD basins' high maintenance motivated the Orlando Utilities Commission's Southwest Water Treatment Plant to update and upgrade the plant’s ozone system.

  4. Ozone Resolves Hydrogen Sulfide And Color Issues In Well Water
    9/1/2018

    A potable water plant in Eastern Angelina County, Texas,  serves over 2,000 rural customers.

  5. Reducing PFAS In Drinking Water With Treatment Technologies
    8/29/2018

    Per- and Polyfluorinated substances (PFAS) are a group of man-made chemicals that persist in the environment. These chemicals have been used for decades in consumer products to make them non-stick and water resistant. They are also found in firefighting foams and are applied in many industrial processes. 

  6. Maximum Ozone Transfer Efficiency Across Broad Range Of Water Flow
    8/25/2018

    The design team for the intermediate ozone system at Buckingham Water Treatment Plant, Quebec, had limited space available for ozone contacting for the plant’s 1.3 – 7.4 MGD flow, so a standard fine bubble diffusion basin for ozone disinfection was not an option.

  7. Robust Encore® Pumps Replace Peristaltic Hose Pumps To Maintain Consistent pH For Finished Drinking Water
    8/22/2018

    Upper Deerfield Township, NJ relies on groundwater from four wells measuring 120 to 160 feet deep. The water is treated at two treatment plants with a capacity of 2.2 MGD and then pumped out to the distribution system with approximately 750,000 gallons of storage. Since the deep groundwater is hard, operators add lime to the finished water to raise the pH to reduce hardness.

  8. Tapping Into The World’s Largest Water Reserves: Oceans And Seas
    8/16/2018

    As per many authentic references, about 97 percent of the water in the world belongs to oceans and seas, whereas 3 percent is freshwater available as glaciers, ice caps, and waterbodies. While we strive to manage available lakes, rivers, and other inland water resources to meet present and future public needs, why not look to these saline water reservoirs as potential alternatives for sustainability?

  9. Conversion From Gas To Liquid Disinfection Yields Significant Improved Water Quality And Cost Savings
    8/15/2018

    In 2006, the Greenwood, South Carolina Commissioners of Public Works became only the fourth U.S. water utility ever to receive Phase IV “Excellence in Water Treatment” recognition from the Partnership for Safe Water. Phase IV is the highest possible level of performance that can be achieved in the Partnership program and signifies optimized plant performance.

  10. Evaluation And Optimization Of Clean-In-Place Using Ozone
    8/15/2018

    A chemical company which specializes in Clean-In-Place (CIP) systems, contacted Mazzei to discuss the use of ozone as an alternative to peracetic acid sanitation or heat sterilization at their customers’ plants.
