  1. Monsters Protect Pump Station, Weather Storms In Scotland
    7/14/2015

    Pump blockages and rags are a significant barrier to energy and operational efficiencies at pump stations, causing unscheduled shut downs, safety hazards for operators, costly equipment repairs and increased power usage due to a decrease in the pumps’ hydraulic performance. Scottish Water observed these negative effects caused by an influx of wipes and rags throughout a network of area pump stations. Engineers looked to a proven, powerful solution in the form of two JWC Environmental Channel Monster® grinders at one of their most problematic sites.

  2. Macerator Explodes, Monster Sludge Grinder Takes Over
    6/30/2015

    The Coeur D’Alene, ID, wastewater treatment plant was having continual problems with two sludge macerators, in part because of the durability of the macerator.

  3. 10K Muffin Monster Takes Over When Macerators Can’t Cut It
    6/3/2015

    The Cibolo Creek Municipal Authority (CCMA) provides regional wastewater services for the area northeast of San Antonio, Texas and serves the surrounding communities. After years of frustration in dealing with severe problems with plugging of the pump suction lines that led to frequent pump rebuilds, they turned to the 10K Muffin Monster. The 10K Muffin Monster now plays an integral role in this water reclamation plant’s system by grinding the primary sludge and debris that is pumped to the digesters.

  4. Upgrade Of Channel Monster Cuts Wipes Problem And $78k From Electrical Bill
    6/3/2015

    Keeping up with both the water needs and sewage disposal of the Santa Margarita Water District has come with significant challenges, particularly due to both the increase in influent and change in the makeup and durability of the sewage running through the district’s reclaimed-water facility.

  5. BioCon®: A Class A Solution
    3/17/2015

    The Picnic Point Wastewater Treatment Facility was faced with reaching their plant processing capacity. The plant was sending its biosolids to be incinerated and part of this challenge was to find a way to manage the biosolids produced by this facility. Hauling and disposing of this sludge was difficult and becoming expensive. It was desirable to have a Class A biosolid to alleviate this concern and be more environmentally conscious.

  6. North Carolina Treatment Plant Eliminates Taste And Odor Issues With Ozonation
    3/9/2015

    Enactment of the Long Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule and the Stage 2 Disinfectant-Disinfection Byproduct Rule (D/DBPR) will require both large and small drinking water utilities to reduce total organic carbon (TOC), Cryptosporidium, and disinfection byproducts (DBPs) in the treated drinking water distributed to the public.

  7. Wastewater Treatment System Achieves Stringent Water Quality Discharge Limits And Reduces Costs
    3/9/2015

    The Village of Johnson Wastewater Treatment Facility (WWTF) was among the first in the state of Vermont to meet newly enacted secondary treatment requirements when it began operation in 1970.

  8. Clari-DAF® System Provides Effective TOC Removal For Cambridge WTP
    3/9/2015

    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. Mixers Prevent Buildup And Reduce Wetwell Cleaning Charges
    3/9/2015

    The City of Reno, NV, has long battled the buildup of fats, oils, and grease in the wetwells of wastewater lift stations in the valleys within this high desert city. Recently, the city set out to address the problem and reduce the associated costs.

  10. Flygt Mixers Clear Sediment And Save Man-Hours For San Antonio Utility
    3/5/2015

    For almost 50 years, CPS Energy of San Antonio has drawn water from the San Antonio River to recharge two man-made lakes that provide cooling water for their power plants.
