  1. 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.

  6. Pilot Study Shows Reduced Radium Levels In Public Water Supply
    8/14/2012

    The Town of Cortland owns and operates a Public Water System  to supply potable water to approximately 2,100 residents. Cortland selected Water Remediation Technology's (WRT) Z-88 Radium Removal Process as a possible cost effective solution for their radium problem. The purpose of this pilot study is to demonstrate the effectiveness of the treatment process on high radium and gross alpha water, establish design parameters for the full scale systems, and meet regulatory piloting requirements.

  7. Encore® 700 Chemical Feed Pumps Provide Reliable Service Over 20 Years In Santa Barbara
    7/30/2016

    The 37 million gallon per day William B. Cater Water Treatment plant serves City of Santa Barbara with the majority of its drinking water while also supplying treated water to the districts of Montecito Water, Carpinteria Valley Water, Goleta Water, and La Cumbre Water.

  8. Case Study: Mountain Water & Sanitation District - Conifer, Colorado
    9/6/2006

    Mountain Water & Sanitation District in Conifer, Colorado have a number of wells in their water system that contain concentrations of uranium in excess of the Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL)

  9. Case Study: Gilbert-Summit Rural Water District - Gilbert, South Carolina
    9/7/2006

    This radium removal pilot study was conducted for Gilbert-Summit Rural Water District in Gilbert, South Carolina. The raw water source for this pilot study was taken prior to any treatment, or the addition of any chemicals, and therefore operated only when the well was operating. Water from the well is treated with blended phosphate, fluoride and chlorine before it enters the distribution system. Naturally occurring radionuclides in the Gilbert- Summit Water District’s raw water source exceed current Maximum Contaminant Levels (MCL’s) for combined radium

  10. Multi-Barrier Disinfection Strategy - New York City (Case Study)
    1/15/2014

    New York City is home to more than 8 million people, making it the most populous city in the United States. The majority of New York's drinking water is supplied by the Catskill/Delaware watershed, located approximately 100 miles outside the city. Historically, NYC has not filtered the water from this system, nor did they require any additional barriers to microbial contaminants due to the pristine nature of the watershed.
