    The Independence Hill Conservancy District's Taney Lift Station was having continuous problems with wipes, swiffers, and plastics deposited in the incoming lines, which then broke loose in storms and overwhelmed the old non-clog pumps.

  3. How Can Seasonal Establishments Treat Their Wastewater Economically?
    2/20/2014

    Opened a few months per year, seasonal establishments typically experience important fluctuations in the number of visitors. Energy consumption and operating expenses must continually be analysed and optimized. The implementation of efficient energy management practices and the integration of innovative wastewater treatment solutions that can improve their cost-efficiency ratio have become major sources of savings for this whole industry.

  4. Water Plant Upgrades: 4 Reasons To Break The Re-Order Habit
    11/19/2014

    A large percentage of the flow meters purchased for municipal water plants are replacements for older meters in existing facilities or distribution systems. It’s a common practice to replace aging meters with the same technology, often from the same manufacturer.

  8. 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.
