Regulations and Legislation Features, Insights, & Analysis

  1. Pennsylvania Makes Big Investment In Water And Wastewater
    8/8/2016

    The state of Pennsylvania is making a significant commitment to water treatment — investing $68 million for twenty drinking water, wastewater, and non-point source projects across fourteen counties through the Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority (PENNVEST), reported WTAE 4.

  2. Activated Carbons For Drinking Water Treatment Datasheet
    5/11/2017

    Activated carbon has proven to be a reliable, cost effective technology for the control of various contaminants found in drinking water supplies. Jacobi Carbons manufactures a full range of activated carbons for municipal drinking water treatment, covering both powdered and granular carbons made from coal, coconut, and proprietary blands of raw materials. These products are manufactured in strict accordance with ANSI/NSF 61 and AWWA B604 standards for drinking water treatment.

  3. Activated Carbon And Adsorption Of Trichloroethylene (TCE) And Tetrachloroethylene (PCE)
    12/30/2013

    Trichloroethylene (TCE) and Tetrachloroethylene (PCE) are two of the most common solvents that contaminate groundwater supplies in the United States. Both solvents see frequent use in the extraction of fat, in the textile industry, in the production of various pharmaceutical and chemical products. TCE is also used as a degreaser from fabricated metal parts, and PCE serves as a component of aerosol dry-cleaning solvents.

  4. Project Profile: Spring Canyon Ranch Quemado, New Mexico
    5/14/2009
    Spring Canyon Ranch, LLC operates a community water system located in Quemado, New Mexico. Two water supply wells provide potable water to approximately 120 service connections. Groundwater enters the treatment system at approximately 40 gallons per minute (gpm) with arsenic concentrations of about 137 parts per billion (ppb). By Adedge Technologies Inc.
  5. Case Study: Wynstone Property Owners Association - Barrington, Illinois
    9/6/2006

    The Wynstone Property Owners Association is located in Barrington, Illinois. The drinking water supply for Wynstone is pumped from deep sandstone wells, chlorinated, sent to storage and then to the distribution system. Naturally occurring radionuclides in Wynstone POA’s raw water source exceeds current Maximum Contaminant Levels (MCL’s) for Gross Alpha Emitters and Combined Radium and Barium

  6. T56 Clarity® II Turbidimeter Datasheet
    5/7/2013

    The Clarity II turbidimeter is intended for the determination of turbidity in water. Low stray light, high stability, efficient bubble rejection, and a display resolution of 0.001 NTU make Clarity II ideal for monitoring the turbidity of filtered drinking water.

  7. Ion Exchange Resins And Activated Carbons For Better-Tasting Water
    12/18/2013

    For many, access to good-tasting tap water is limited, and buying bottled water can be expensive. Simple pour-through jug filters offer a low-cost and effective alternative. Activated carbons, in conjunction with ion exchange products, produce drinking water that is absent of all industrial pesticides and contaminants.

  8. Z-88® Radium Treatment Process - City Of Farmington, Missouri Case Study
    8/9/2012

    This radium removal pilot study was conducted for the City of Farmington, Missouri Well No. 17 treatment facility. The Farmington water system contains concentrations of radium and gross alpha in excess of the Maximum Contaminant Levels (MCL).

  9. Measuring Flow In A Pump Station
    3/1/2016

    A municipal drinking water distribution system, also known as a water supply system, is used to provide fresh drinking water to residential and commercial customers and facilities around the world. A distribution system for drinking water typically begins with: a) intake of raw surface water from a reservoir or lake or b) ground water intake from wells transferred to a water treatment plant. By Barry Spiegel, Director of Municipal Sales

  10. Carbon Adsorption & Reactivation
    8/2/2016

    Chemical, petrochemical, and oil-refining plants are process-intensive operations with regulatory requirements to protect the surrounding water and air from the effects of industrial pollution. These external demands are matched by equally compelling internal pressures to address product purification needs, find alternatives to utilizing costly fresh water in production processes, reduce the carbon footprint, and operate efficiently and profitably.
