  5. Less And More: Biological Nutrient Removal With Granular Sludge
    11/6/2018

    Many wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) are facing stricter limits on nutrient discharges, yet each plant and situation is different and solutions are not one-size-fits-all. Bryce Figdore, Wastewater Process Engineer with HDR and Water Talk podcast guest, talks about another tool at utilities' disposal — nitrification bioaugmentation using granular sludge.

  6. Laying The Blueprint For 'One Water' Management
    11/6/2018

    Partnering with the Water Research Foundation, Brown and Caldwell has developed the Blueprint for One Water — a user-friendly document for the practical application of 'One Water' planning. According to Lisa Skutecki, Brown and Caldwell's Southern California Water Resources Group Manager, 'One Water' is the concept of breaking down barriers across the water sector.

  7. Pump Station Rehabs Extend Service Life

    Retrofitting your existing S&L Pump Station with new components can give it new life. In fact, you just might retire before it does.

  8. S&L Redesigns TITAN MBR™
    11/5/2018

    Delivering the best MBR experience, Smith & Loveless announces the new TITAN MBR™.

  9. Green Energy And Decentralized Water Treatment For The Caribbean
    10/31/2018

    Among water treatment industry professionals, consensus is growing that small- to medium-scale decentralized desalination and wastewater treatment plants are the way forward in a water-stressed future. But governments continue to announce new water mega-infrastructure projects at an alarming rate. Because the public policy debate appears to have simply not caught up with current technology, many companies and NGOs with a focus on small- to medium-scale water treatment or renewable energy have begun to see the Caribbean as something of a new frontier.

  10. The Expanding Role Of Ozone
    10/30/2018

    As water reuse becomes increasingly common, more utilities will get to know ozone. To explain its role in water treatment schemes, Water Talk welcomed Jim Lauria, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Mazzei Injector Company, and Ben Kuhnel, Senior Project Manager for Arcadis. Learn how ozone works in concert with other processes to safely recycle water and treat contaminants of emerging concern — even in mobile/on-site applications.
