WASTEWATER FEATURES, INSIGHTS AND ANALYSIS

  1. How To Save Costs With Simple, Effective Data Management
    3/28/2018

    Water and wastewater utilities must monitor numerous aspects of their systems on a continuous basis. Various instruments are used to measure these processes, producing volumes of data every day. Endress+Hauser is a leading supplier of products and services for process measurement and automation. Water Online spoke with three of Endress+Hauser's experts to find out how data loggers and managers can save costs while providing effective data management. 

  2. Farm Community Effort Leads To Improved Drinking Water For Thousands
    3/28/2018

    All communities depend on clean water and that supply of clean water depends on the actions of members in the community and outside of it. The small city of Kutztown lies within the Saucony Creek watershed in Berks County, Pennsylvania. The watershed is mostly agricultural, dotted with small family crop and livestock farms, and the activities on these farms affect water supplies near and far.

  3. Elaborate Stormwater System Saves Time And Money In Florida Project
    3/27/2018

    A stormwater management system designed for a new convenience store in Sarasota, FL, required a sophisticated and elaborate approach. When it was completed earlier this year, the complex system resulted in huge money and time savings for the property owner, which will enable the store to open this fall.

  4. Two Products Combine To Provide An Enhanced Nutrient Removal Advantage To Protect Our Waterways
    3/23/2018

    Cherokee County, GA, conducted an extensive on-site pilot evaluation of several available process options and technologies, including various plate settler designs. Read the full case study to learn how enhanced nutrient removal (ENR) integrated design continues to deliver water quality of <0.1 mg/L Ammonia, <0.07 mg/L Phosphorus and <0.5 NTU. Not only does the WWTP consistently meet EPA direct discharge limits on BOD, Total Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Turbidity, but these final effluent values readily exceed surface water discharge permits levels.

  5. Water Quality Testing: Solutions From Catchment To Waste
    3/22/2018

    Globally, over 80% of the wastewater generated by society flows back into the environment without being treated or reused. Clean water is an essential part of daily life, from catchment all the way through to wastewater treatment, therefore analysis throughout the whole cycle is crucial. Whether in lakes, pipes, or bottles, we can accompany you with our range of instruments, test kits and applications for your water and wastewater needs.

  6. Two Processes, One Flow Metering Technology: The Benefits Of Standardization
    3/21/2018

    Wastewater treatment facilities use multiple processes and a variety of equipment to produce water clean enough for reuse. Each process within the treatment train may serve a different function yet use the same or similar equipment. In such cases, standardizing equipment may be beneficial.

  7. How To Extend The Life Of Your Wastewater Pumps
    3/20/2018

    Wastewater treatment plants use numerous pumps in a variety of types and sizes to move water through the process. Depending on plant configuration, they may pump influent, activated sludge, thickened or digested sludge, biosolids, scum, filtrate, effluent, or reuse water. Each matrix has specific characteristics that engineers consider when designing pumping systems.

  8. Harmful Algae: How To Stay Ahead Of The Bloom
    3/20/2018

    It’s the call no water treatment plant superintendent wants to receive, especially not while on vacation. Andy McClure, Superintendent of Toledo, Ohio’s Collins Park Water Treatment Plant, answered his phone to hear his head of operations report that the level of microcystin in the finished water was high, caused by a large harmful algal bloom (HAB) that was impacting the plant’s Lake Erie intake.

  9. The Challenges Of Combined Heat And Power Generation From Biogas
    3/16/2018

    Driven by tight budgets and competing needs for limited CAPEX funds, wastewater treatment plants are increasingly looking to reduce their operating expenses. Many are now referring to themselves as water resource recovery facilities (WRRFs), reflecting a heightened focus on recovering nutrients, methane, and a host of other properties from their waste flows. The largest boon to date has come from thermal energy, but producing biogas comes with its own set of challenges, including accurate gas flow measurement.

  10. Parkson University — Introduction to Wastewater Part 4
    3/15/2018

    The fourth and final introductory video of the series, follows how biosolids are treated throughout the process. Reviewing thickening, aerobic and anaerobic digestion, dewatering and drying. An introduction to wastewater treatment unlike any other out there.
