WASTEWATER FEATURES, INSIGHTS AND ANALYSIS

  1. MABR Is The Big Cheese For This Dairy Farming WWTP
    1/29/2018

    Hayogev is a residential development in the rural area of Jezreel Valley, with 1000 homes, agricultural fields and dairy farms. Located in an open field next to small farms, the local treatment facility handles wastewater from HaYogev and Midrach Oz. The customer was looking for a localized wastewater treatment solution to replace the existing pond system, which faced difficulties in treating the wastewater due to high levels of nutrients. A new state-level regulation concerning reclaimed water required the wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) operator to reduce the nutrients in the effluent stream. The solution had to be odorless and quiet, have low power consumption, and use the existing pond and structure.

  2. What Is The Connection Between Reclaimed Water, Agriculture, And Filtration?
    1/29/2018

    The case for using reclaimed water is strong. Water has become an increasingly valuable (and often rare) resource, and every drop counts. As potable water sources become harder to find and access, people are moving to alternative sources such as non-potable fresh water, brackish sources, or reclaiming treated effluent rather than disposing of it.

  3. Emerging Trends In Disinfection: Peracetic Acid
    1/24/2018

    As regulations on chlorinated disinfection byproducts and total residual chlorine become increasingly stringent, peracetic acid (PAA) is gaining in both interest and usage as a water reclamation disinfectant. Here’s what you need to know.

  4. A 'SWIFT' Approach To Managed Aquifer Recharge
    1/24/2018

    The Sustainable Water Initiative for Tomorrow (SWIFT) will not only restore declining levels to the Potomac Aquifer System, but it will also reduce nutrient discharges to the Chesapeake Bay.

  5. Tackling Modern Wastewater Treatment Challenges And Unlocking Efficiencies With Advanced Water Technologies
    1/24/2018

    Research studies, empirical evidence, and the march of time all suggest that the implementation of next-generation technologies at wastewater utilities is profoundly important, if not imperative, for efficient operations.

  6. Delivering Assets And Strengthening Communities: A CBP3 Primer
    1/24/2018

    Local government can harness the power of community-based, public-private partnerships (CBP3s) to efficiently implement programs that encompass delivery of many unique assets — such as stormwater management programs that include green infrastructure. Can your community benefit from this delivery approach?

  7. Bioleaching For Enhanced Sludge Dewaterability — Pilot Study And Full-Scale Application
    1/24/2018

    Innovation doesn’t always flip current thinking on its head; in many cases, it improves an existing process to give it better or wider application. Such is the case when bioleaching is applied to wastewater sludge.

  8. High-Throughput DNA Sequencing To Profile Microbial Water Quality Of Potable Reuse
    1/24/2018

    Research scientists are making strides to advance the safety and application of potable water reuse through the use of metagenomics for water quality analysis.

  9. How To Protect Water Conveyance Systems From Transient Pressure
    1/24/2018

    Is water hammer pounding your pipeline infrastructure into submission? Here are some tips for avoiding issues associated with hydraulic transients.

  10. How Often Should I Measure ATP In My Wastewater Treatment Plant?
    1/22/2018

    LuminUltra’s 2nd Generation ATP has many potential uses within a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP), including: diagnosing acute and chronic toxicity, optimizing solids concentrations in the aeration tank, optimizing dissolved oxygen setpoints and identifying sludge bulking events.
