Regulations and Legislation Features, Insights, & Analysis

  1. 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.

  2. T56 Clarity® II Turbidimeter Datasheet

    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.

  3. 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

  4. Project Profile: Melody Woods Water Company Los Gatos, California Iron And Manganese Treatment System

    In February 2009, the Melody Woods Water Company selected and began working with AdEdge Technologies to assist with the design and implementation of a Manganese, Iron and Turbidity treatment system to serve the water supply for Melody Woods in Los Gatos, California. By Adedge Technologies Inc.

  5. Project Profile: Spring Canyon Ranch Quemado, New Mexico

    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.

  6. Why Metal Detectors And X-Ray Inspection Systems Should Be Used Together

    Metal detectors and X-ray inspection systems are widely used for finding foreign body contamination. Let's see how these two systems can work together to improve contaminant detection.

  7. Z-92® Uranium Treatment Process - City Of Lawrenceville, Georgia Case Study

    This uranium removal pilot study was conducted for the City of Lawrenceville, GA at their Ezzard Road Well No. 3 treatment facility. The City of Lawrenceville's water system contains concentrations of uranium and gross alpha that are in excess of the maximum contaminant levels (MCL).

  8. 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

  9. Safe Drinking Water With UV Disinfection (Case Study)

    The source water in Cudahy, a city just south of Milwaukee, is susceptible to contamination and significantly impacted by agricultural and urban runoff. After a Cryptosporidium outbreak in the early 1990s, improved water quality was vital. A UV solution proved to be the best fit for protection against the contaminant within a restrictive space.

  10. 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.
