  1. Pilot Study Shows Reduced Radium Levels In Public Water Supply

    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.

  2. Three Categories Of Sustainability

    Nearly 4.7 billion gallons of water were saved in 2013 alone through installation of Badger Meter water utility solutions.

  3. Case Study: Gilbert-Summit Rural Water District - Gilbert, South Carolina

    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

  4. Crafting H2O — The Science And Art Of Beer Making

    Cincinnati-based MadTree Brewing Company is serious about how they make their beer. Their scientific approach means that they also pay close attention to the water they use, a message they’re more than happy to share.

  5. UV Examined (Audio)

    Adam Festger, Market Manager, Drinking Water and Environmental Contaminant Treatment for TrojanUV, highlights some of advances in UV technology over the last few years including UV groundwater treatment, UV chemical contamination treatment and UV lamp efficiency.

  6. Multi-Barrier Disinfection Strategy - New York City (Case Study)

    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.

  7. Case Study: Borough of Point Pleasant, New Jersey

    This radium removal pilot study was conducted for the Borough of Point Pleasant, New Jersey at the Well No. 8 treatment facility. The raw water source for this pilot study was taken prior to any treatment, or the addition of any chemicals. The pilot unit was run on a continuous basis throughout the study

  8. Clari-DAF® System Provides Effective TOC Removal For Cambridge WTP

    To ensure treated water complied with the most stringent drinking water standards, including the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Stage 2 Disinfectants and Disinfection Byproducts Rule (State 2 DBPR), the City of Cambridge, MA, WTP decided to implement a robust multibarrier treatment solution.

  9. AMERICAN/Ferguson Partnership Is Key Part Of First Water System For Russia, Ohio

    Changes in Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations prompted the Village of Russia, Ohio, to put the question of whether to build a new water system in front of the voters. 

  10. Cost-Effective Plant Renovation Proves Itself

    Rather than build totally new facilities, the award-winning Fond du Lac Regional WWTP adapted existing elements to comply with a stringent ammonia rule change, resolve bypass problems, and double hydraulic capacity, all at less energy usage.
