Drinking Water Treatment Insights

  1. Innovation Leads The Way To Solving Desalination Challenges
    7/12/2018

    Not just a solution for water-scarce cities by the sea, desalination is also vitally important for industrial processes and many inland utilities reliant on groundwater. Like other treatment technologies, continued water security and prosperity depend on improvements in the processes and developments on the horizon.

  2. The Importance Of Robust Water Management: The Evolving Challenge Of Safeguarding Global Waterways
    7/12/2018

    As manufacturing across the world further develops, new chemicals and contaminant threats are being introduced into the environment, creating new challenges for industrial and municipal treatment operations.

  3. What You Need To Know About 1,2,3-TCP And Drinking Water
    7/9/2018

    As our ability to measure contaminants at ever smaller concentrations improves, “emerging contaminants” are on the rise. Per the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), emerging contaminants are chemicals or materials characterized by a perceived, potential, or real threat to human health or the environment.

  4. Smart People On Smart Water: 4 Perspectives From Europe
    6/27/2018

    The 7th Annual Smart Water Systems Conference, presented by SMi Group, brought smart water experts from around the world to London for two days in April. As an event partner, Water Online had interview access to event speakers — including those from some of Europe’s largest water providers — who were surveyed on trends and challenges in smart water. Read on to hear the thoughts of four smart water experts on four key questions.

  5. The U.S. Government Is Finally Starting To Pay Attention To PFAS — It’s About Time
    6/22/2018

    The Environment Working Group (EWG) recently released a report that claims up to 110 million Americans could have drinking water contaminated by PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) — much higher than the previous estimate of 16 million affected Americans.

  6. The Best Solution For Decentralized Water Treatment
    6/4/2018

    For years, centralized water and wastewater treatment facilities have been the norm. Large treatment plants typically provided the most cost-effective solution, due to economies of scale. However, new technology is tipping the scales, as decentralized treatment solutions are providing improved treatment at reduced costs.

  7. Point Level vs. Continuous Level Measuring Technologies
    5/14/2018

    While point level measuring approaches are regarded as simple and user-friendly, they lack the capabilities of more sophisticated continuous measuring instruments.

  8. Building Resilient Drinking Water Treatment Operations For A Sustainable Water Future
    5/14/2018

    It's spring and the algae are in bloom, but harmful algal blooms are far from the only threats to drinking water. Fortunately, there are advanced treatment technologies to handle some of the most persistent contaminants today, including algal toxins, Cryptosporidium, and 1,4-dioxane.

  9. Innovative, Collaborative, Inevitable: Furthering The Evolution Of Smart Water In North America

    A Q&A with Gary Wong, chairman of the SWAN North American Alliance

  10. How To Cost-Effectively Remove Multiple Contaminants From Water Simultaneously
    4/25/2018

    Water utilities must protect the public health by producing a final product that meets all regulatory requirements. In addition, the water must be pleasing to the customer, with no taste or odor issues. And finally, utilities must stay abreast of emerging contaminants, health advisories, and new regulations. It’s a constant challenge to shoulder these responsibilities while staying within tight budgets. Utilities need a technology that helps them achieve multiple goals cost-effectively.
