  4. The Role Of Ultraviolet Disinfection In Protecting India’s Water (Article)
    10/30/2018

    Protecting public health and the environment by treating and disinfecting water and wastewater is a global endeavor. India is no exception, and with a rise in population and industrialization, protection of water resources is critical.

  5. How To Provide Effective Disinfection With No Hazardous Chemicals
    10/19/2018

    Reliable and effective disinfection is a cornerstone of water and wastewater treatment, needed to protect public health. Most drinking water utilities are required to maintain a minimum disinfectant residual in the distribution system. This ensures adequate chemical was applied and remains in the system to kill pathogens. The most commonly used disinfectants — chlorine gas and bulk sodium hypochlorite — require operators to regularly handle these hazardous chemicals.

  7. Following Florence, Lessons From Harvey In Recovery And Resilience
    9/20/2018

    With the impacts of Hurricane Florence continuing to unfold, coastal communities in the Southeast will soon be looking to other coastal areas, like Houston, as models for rebuilding resiliently. By doing so, they can speed their recovery and build back in smart ways — because that’s what resilience is all about.

  8. Sending Your Wet Weather Problem Back To The Cloud(s)
    9/17/2018

    Most of us don’t have to think about the vital infrastructure that supports our society.  Water is delivered to our homes and businesses 24/7, and wastewater is efficiently and cleanly whisked away.  The ability of our utilities to manage these services means we only take notice at times of inconvenience: water outages, sewer blockages, or stormwater overflows. 

  9. How Data And Nature Can Combine To Help Small Wastewater Treatment Plants Address Huge Hauling Costs
    9/13/2018

    It is no secret that the number of landfills has been steadily decreasing across the United States. As more and more cities adopt ‘zero waste to landfill’ sustainability goals, the number of landfills has shrunk from 6,326 in 1990 to 1,738 in 2015. Decreasing landfills has meant increased waste hauling costs for wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) as sludge travels farther distances to reach landfills.

  10. Treating Emerging Contaminants With UV Advanced Oxidation
