Wastewater Case Studies and Whitepapers

  1. Significant Energy Saving Resulting From Change Of Thickening Technology
    4/7/2017

    During the summer of 2015 the Waging WWTP in the Bavarian Chiemgau district was desperately looking for an energy-efficient, high-performance sludge thickening plant to replace the centrifuge they had been using. The objective was to optimize digester capacity, gas yield and sludge handling in the overall process on site. Read more about their successful implementation.

  2. Stormwater Treatment and Reuse - Toronto, Ontario (Case Study)
    6/5/2012

    Sherbourne Common is an innovative waterfront park that provides the public with green recreational space along Lake Ontario in a former industrial area. 

  3. Rhode Island Wastewater Plants Key To Water Quality Reversal
    4/27/2017

    Despite evidence that often points to the contrary, many bodies of water around the country stand as prime examples of how environmental quality can be improved with the proper will and effort.

  4. Plants Are Transformed When Rag Reduction Makes More Room For Treatment
    11/20/2017

    Efficiency goals met! Life expectancy of expensive variable frequency drives increased! Ragging build-up on selector mixers all but eliminated! Reduction of debris from 25-30 gallons to a few handfuls! Highest possible percentage of inorganics removed from flow! Plant kept in amazingly consistent treatment mode! These are not the dreams of treatment plant supervisors but are actual results produced by EscaMAX® Perforated Screens.

  5. Camp Steiner, Utah Case Study
    12/22/2011

    Located at 10,400 feet in the Uintah Mountains of Utah, Camp Steiner is the highest Boy Scout camp in the United States.

  6. Get More Out of Water Resources Engineering Models
    1/19/2017

    The effort required to develop water resources engineering models can be significant. But once developed, in many instances the models are only evaluated for a limited, or a single set of conditions. The results and predictions obtained from these evaluations are the ones used in design, presented in reports and conveyed to decision makers and the public.

  7. Hydro-Guard® Improves Water Quality And Saves Man-Hours For Central Texas Vacation Community
    3/10/2015

    The user population of a Central Texas resort system does not reach its peak until summer and the resultant levels of peak and low usage vary widely. This fluctuation impacts levels of disinfectant residual and, consequently, water quality — especially at the end of the line. Manual flushing of the utility's hydrants to maintain water quality has resulted in excessive time and labor as workers must access the outlying areas.

  8. Color, Turbidity And Philosophy
    1/28/2015

    When we humans look at objects we describe them in terms of color. We say that an apple is red or a leaf is green. To us color is an attribute just as surely as the mass or dimensions of an object. But the fact is that color is a pure human construct. Take away the human and it does not exist.

  9. AMERICAN’s Versatility Shines In Rocky Terrain
    4/9/2015

    Murfreesboro, Tennessee, is the fastest growing city in Tennessee, and one of the fastest growing cities in the United States with its population more than doubling since 2000.

  10. Aquapoint’s AquaCell And Hallett® H-30’s Perfect Partners On Zooland Project
    1/11/2013

    Zooland is a resort/campground site in the Asheboro, NC, area. They have a relatively high-strength waste stream and are permitted for a surface discharge, therefore they must achieve very high effluent standards. One way or another, there was an obvious need for wastewater treatment. Cost was an issue, because private clients (especially) don’t want to spend money on wastewater.
