Drinking Water Treatment Resources

  1. Delivering In Real Time: OSIsoft’s Partnership With Esri Brings Space And Time Together
    11/7/2018

    The 38th Annual Esri User Conference in San Diego was another great success, and an opportunity for us to showcase our integration technology.   This year OSIsoft has received the Esri Partner Award for “Delivering in Real-Time”, marking a major milestone in our common journey to deliver real-time data inside Esri's maps.  Award winners were chosen based on demonstrated best practices in their advanced use of Esri technology, and their contribution to taking the ArcGIS Platform's latest features and geographic visualization to the next level.

  2. Big Data For Small Towns, Or Stopping The $300,000 Leak

    The water burbling down the rural hillside, nurturing the thick foliage, certainly looked like a stream.

  3. What Can 2nd Generation ATP Do For An Operator Or Field Technician?
    11/1/2018

    It’s important to start with the fact that this is not a regulatory test. This technology won’t replace any required compliance tests and the results are not reportable, which is actually a great benefit to our users. While regulatory testing is important, compliant does not necessarily mean clean.

  4. Getting Serious About Lead Service Line Replacement
    10/29/2018

    It has been 32 years since the amended Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) banned the installation of lead pipes in water systems nationwide. Unfortunately, that decision has not yet translated into action for every lead service line (LSL) installed before that point. Fortunately, someone has done a lot of legwork toward getting a handle on that process. Here is a preview of the help they have to offer.

  5. Big Data Problem Solved With Magnetic Flow Meter Technology
    10/25/2018

    SUEZ operates regulated water systems in eight states, and provides contract services to over five million people. SUEZ operates several water systems in the suburbs of New York City including SUEZ New Rochelle and SUEZ Westchester in Westchester County, New York.

  6. Identifying The Best Lead Sampling Techniques To Protect Public Health
    10/23/2018

    If lead is found in drinking water, it is important to identify where it is coming from within the water system — that means taking samples at every stage, from the distribution system all the way to the plumbing system inside the home, also known as premise plumbing.

  7. A Multi Process Approach With One Single Solution
    10/22/2018

    A joint effort between the city of Hollister, the San Benito County Water District and the Sunny slope County Water District, the group proposed the West Hills Water Treatment Plant (WHWTP) project to improve drinking water quality, water supply reliability, and to balance regional water resources in the Hollister Urban Area (HUA). Historically, HUA relied primarily on local groundwater basins for meeting their drinking water demands. While groundwater met all drinking water regulations, it is high in minerals and hardness that often resulted in scaling and the need for further conditioning.

  8. California Dreamin’? Pilot Study Makes Treating Arsenic, Manganese And Iron A Reality
    10/12/2018

    The City of Paramount conducted a pilot study for arsenic, manganese and iron treatment system at their Well 15 site. The onsite pilot test was designed to demonstrate the performance of the Loprest Water Treatment Company treatment process proposed for the new treatment plant.

  9. Coping With Mixed-Source Water Quality And Corrosion Challenges
    10/12/2018

    When it becomes necessary to expand or blend water supply sources, variety is not necessarily the spice of life. Whether new water sources are surface water or groundwater, fresh, brackish, seawater, or water recovered from aquifer storage, they can ultimately impact water treatment plant (WTP) operations and finished water quality — including compliance with the U.S. EPA Lead and Copper Rule.

  10. Pilot Test For Manganese Removal Using Manganese Greensand (Loprest)
    10/11/2018

    Loprest has been designing and fabricating manganese removal systems using manganese greensand for over forty years. Drawing on that experience; filtration rates, run times, backwash procedures, chemical dosage rates, etc. are all established by theoretical calculations and history. Therefore, Loprest’s goal in this pilot study was to conduct uninterrupted operation per bid testing procedures and document the results.
