  1. 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.

  2. Case Study: Wynstone Property Owners Association - Barrington, Illinois

    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

  3. Activated Carbons For Drinking Water Treatment Datasheet

    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.

  4. With The Prospect Of Lighter Restrictions, Wastewater Upgrades Could Be In Vain

    With the Trump administration likely to loosen wastewater treatment regulations, utilities face a conundrum.

  5. The Benefits Of Continuous Monitoring Of Phosphate In Corrosion Control

    When Flint Michigan discontinued purchasing water from the Detroit Water Authority and began using the Flint River as their raw water source they unfortunately did not consider the potential impact on lead and copper corrosion and the impact on the public.

  6. Measuring Flow In A Pump Station

    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

  7. Z-88® Radium Treatment Process - City Of Farmington, Missouri Case Study

    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).

  8. AdEdge Technologies APU Iron & Manganese Removal Systems Brochure

    Designed and built specifically for well head treatment, AD26 systems are engineered as stand alone systems for the removal of iron, manganese, sulfide, and arsenic (if it coexists with high levels of iron).

  9. Pennsylvania Makes Big Investment In Water And Wastewater

    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.

  10. Activated Carbon And Adsorption Of Trichloroethylene (TCE) And Tetrachloroethylene (PCE)

    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.
