Drinking Water Treatment Insights

  1. Maximizing EDI With 3M Liqui-Cel

    Electrodeionization (EDI) is a cutting-edge water treatment process that is now used all over the world. While it’s become the solution of choice for countless operations, it’s not exactly worry-free to utilize. When complications arise with performance optimization, it can be difficult to know where to turn.

  2. Exploring The Future Of Membranes With QUA

    The modern history of drinking water treatment can be traced through membranes. As our water expertise has grown over the last few decades, membranes have undergone a dramatic evolution, from straightforward filtration devices to complex systems that utilize nanotechnology.

  3. Lowering Desalination’s Energy Footprint: Lessons From Israel

    There’s an old expression that whisky is for drinking and water is for fighting over. The Legislative Session is upon us again in Texas, and count on water being an issue, as it always is in this drought and flood-prone state.

  4. In Trump Era, A New Plan For Drinking Water Safety

    A U.S. EPA “call to action” for improving drinking water seems to lay the groundwork for the new president to address public health.

  5. 'Far Out' Technology Simplifies Pipeline Leak Detection

    Satellites provide the latest, perhaps most efficient, method for spotting underground leaks, ushering in a new era of non-revenue water management.

  6. Selecting A Flow Measurement Technology

    What’s the right flow measurement method for your operation? A leading independent lab breaks down the options and considerations.

  7. The Problem With Road Salt

    With winter snow comes the inevitable introduction of a water source foe: road salt. With potential hazards posed to consumers and the environment, it’s up to treatment plants and utilities to do something about it.

  8. EPA Providing Guidance For Drinking Water After Radiological Emergency

    What would happen if there was an emergency in the U.S. that caused radioactive material to contaminate drinking water supplies? What steps could your utilities and government take?

  9. Remove Perfluorinated Compounds From Drinking Water — Without Creating A Toxic Waste Stream

    Water utility managers have a lot of responsibilities, not the least of which is to keep up with the latest in the industry—contaminants, regulations, technology, and trends. And perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) are on the horizon as contaminants that may affect the public health. Water Online spoke with Calgon Carbon about these important emerging contaminants and how best to remove them.

  10. The Synergy Between Activated Carbon And Ion Exchange

    Jacobi Carbons is a renowned voice in activated carbon (AC) solutions for water treatment, as its name would imply. But its employees also possess a high-level expertise on ion exchange (IX) and how the two processes can be combined for optimal results. Water Online tapped into this knowledge, speaking with Jeffrey Singer from Jacobi to break down the processes’ role in water treatment, the problems they can solve as a team, and who utilizes this synergy best.
