  1. Project Profile: City of Aurora, Oregon

    In late 2009, Water Works Engineers contacted AdEdge to design and implement an arsenic, iron and manganese removal system to serve the City of Aurora, Oregon. By AdEdge Technologies Inc.

  2. FILTRASORB® 400 Granular Activated Carbon Datasheet

    FILTRASORB 400 activated carbon can be used in a variety of liquid phase applications for the removal of dissolved organic compounds.

  3. Project Profile: Brandywine Elementary School, New Palestine, Indiana, AD26 Arsenic, Iron, Manganese Removal System

    In July 2009, AdEdge Technologies Inc. (AdEdge) was contacted by Ladd Engineering, Inc. to provide a proposal for the Brandywine Elementary School in the Southern Hancock School District. By Adedge Technologies Inc.

  4. Removal Of Disinfection By-Product With Chlorine Dioxide

    This municipality disinfects 1-1.5 million gallons per day of drinking water, and is currently transitioning from a small system serving <10,000 people to a large system serving >10,000 people. Chlorine gas was used as the primary disinfectant for the raw water entering the plant.

  5. On-Site Disinfection Generation Enables City To Provide High Quality Water For Industrial Food Processing Customers

    The city of Buhl, Idaho, obtains all of its drinking water from groundwater sources through multiple wells. Prior to 2009, the city did not treat the groundwater but only added chlorine in the form of bulk 12.5% sodium hypochlorite to provide a disinfectant residual. A combination of factors including: changes in EPA and state DEQ regulatory requirements, growth of the residential population and growth of the industrial food processing customers forced the City to build a new water treatment plant to provide filtration to address the naturally occurring arsenic present in the groundwater.

  6. Project Profile: Ramah Pine Hill Water System Ramah, New Mexico

    The Ramah Navajo Chapter owns and operates the Ramah Pine Hill water system located in Ramah, New Mexico. The water system is served by one well that provides drinking water for the community’s residents at a maximum of 130 gallons per minute (gpm) with an approximate arsenic concentration of 18 parts per billion (ppb) and iron concentration of 1.70 milligrams per liter (mg/L). By Adedge Technologies Inc.

  7. California Dreamin’? Pilot Study Makes Treating Arsenic, Manganese And Iron A Reality

    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.

  8. Your Water System Is Not Cold, Lifeless Pipes; It Acts And Reacts To Everything It Sees

    You may have heard about the tragedy in Flint, Michigan — but to keep everyone on the same page the water in that system has turned toxic.

  9. ATP And DNA – Who’s On First?

    As some of you may have heard, LuminUltra has partnered with Microbe Detectives to offer DNA testing services to the drinking water and wastewater industries. So “Who’s on First?” (pun intended); simply put, the partnership’s combined technologies tell you who is in a given water or wastewater sample, and how much is in that sample.

  10. Thinking Of Donating? Consider These Charitable Organizations

    Those who are philanthropically-minded need look no further for a cause than that of water. After all, this is a fundamental aspect of human existence and one that is shockingly scarce in some parts of the world.
