Wastewater Contaminant Removal White Papers & Case Studies

  1. State-Of-The-Art Septage Station Handles Large Volumes Effectively
    2/21/2017

    When SAWS in San Antonio sought to upgrade their septage collection system they faced challenges beyond what might be normally seen in a typical WWTP. By partnering with Huber Technology, SAWS was able to navigate through challenges and put together a world class system.

  2. Florida County Partners With The WateReuse Association To Find The Best Use For Reclaimed Drinking Water
    2/14/2017

    In 2016 Hillsborough County Public Utilities, a forward thinking organization, initiated the first direct potable reuse pilot project in Florida. In its efforts to utilize 100 percent of its reclaimed water, the progressive utility created a successful program to effectively suspend surface water discharges. Read the full case study to learn more.

  3. Safe, Energy Efficient Disinfection For 45 MGD Combined Sewer WWTP Improves Water Quality
    2/14/2017

    The Hudson River, in the Capital District of Albany, NY, is a popular recreational area for boating, swimming and fishing. Unfortunately combined sewer overflows following storm events and snow melt from sewer systems dating back to the 1800’s were causing increased fecal coliform counts which in turn resulted in health alerts and limited access to the river. After considering several alternatives, the Albany County Sewer District selected a Wedeco Duron 60i2-2.5X4, with high power Ecoray 600W lamps, for their disinfection system.

  4. Project Profile: WWTP Dundee, Oregon Earns An Incentive By Reducing Energy Consumption With The Help Of ETS-UV™ Disinfection Systems
    2/3/2017

    The City of Dundee is a growing community with a strong economy boasting three wineries within the city limits and several others in the surrounding Willamette River Valley. The City’s existing WWTP was nearing capacity, and the limited discharge to the Williamette River would not adequately support Dundee’s planned growth.

  5. Aerobic Granular Sludge System Reduces Energy Up To 50% When Compared To Conventional Activated Sludge Systems
    2/1/2017

    The AquaNereda® Aerobic Granular Sludge System (AGS) is an innovative biological wastewater treatment technology that provides advanced treatment using the unique features of aerobic granular biomass. This advanced nutrient removal process can reduce footprint up to 75% and energy up to 50% when compared to conventional activated sludge systems.

  6. Plant Operations And Maintenance Staff Benefits From New Headworks
    2/1/2017

    The high cost of maintenance and unsatisfactory performance of the aging equipment in the Bonnybrook headworks made it clear that significant changes were in order. The older poorly performing headworks allowed screenings to pass to the downstream process units causing operational and maintenance problems. By installing the Huber RakeMax® and matching WAP washpress, Calgary’s process performance immediately improved.

  7. Replaced Screen Brings WWTP From The Stone Age To The Modern Age
    1/29/2017

    Havre WWTP was in search of a replacement solution that would improve their screening process. The old system often became plugged with rags. The City learned quickly to depend on Huber’s RakeMax technology to help it overcome its challenges. The highly effective technology enables the City’s operations to remove such a high percentage of inorganics that the downstream processing are more effective and components are less stressed.

  8. Dependable Operation And Longevity Invaluable To Guelph’s Screening Process
    1/29/2017

    It had become obvious to The City of Guelph that it was time to replace several of the components in its treatment process. Project leaders wanted to upgrade its treatment processes by implementing leading edge technology. By thoroughly researching what was available they choose the technology and vendor that was the best match for their long-term wastewater treatment goals of the City.

  9. The World’s Largest Drinking Water Plant Using Ozone Serves 1.6 Million Customers
    1/20/2017

    Facing new limits on acceptable levels of DBPs in the drinking water, as well as age-old complaints about the taste of the water during the summer algal bloom, the North Texas Municipal Water District turned to ozone disinfection as a possible alternative able to address both concerns.

  10. Indirect Potable Reuse With UV-Oxidation - Big Spring, Texas (Case Study)
    12/12/2016

    In an effort to reduce reliance on dwindling surface and groundwater supplies in Texas, the Colorado River Municipal Water District (CRMWD) constructed a new Raw Water Production Facility (RWPF) in Big Spring. Big Spring is a 27,000-member community located in West Texas approximately 300 miles west of Dallas. This RWPF treats secondary wastewater to a standard that allows it to be re-introduced directly into the raw water supply for the water treatment plants of Big Spring, Odessa, and other communities in the region.
