    This year's Annual Conference and Exposition (ACE16), held by the American Water Works Association (AWWA) from June 19 to 22, was the first following the tragedy of Flint — a time when the drinking water industry is under intense scrutiny.

  3. ED vs. RO: The Benefits Of Electrodialysis For Desalination
    8/11/2015

    There is no doubt that reverse osmosis (RO) currently reigns among desalination techniques, if your metric is total number of installations. But a new competitor has arisen, at least for particular applications. If you have brackish water in the 2,000 to 15,000 ppm range of total dissolved solids (TDS), you may want to consider electrodialysis (ED) over RO.

    They did it again. Seemingly every year WEFTEC breaks records for size and attendance, and 2014 in New Orleans was no exception. There was a lot to choose from, but I picked my favorite innovations to highlight in what has become another annual tradition — Water Online’s “Top 10” from WEFTEC.

  8. Radioactive Waste: Can Membranes Reduce The Fear Factor?
    10/1/2014

    It’s no wonder that the word "radioactive" scares people. I remember Chernobyl. I was raised on The Simpsons, with its bumbling plant operators and three-eyed fish. I've followed the Fukushima tragedy closely. But, scary or not, nuclear power isn't going anywhere soon.
