More Wastewater Industry Features

  1. Increased Biogas Yields With Biological Hydrolysis
    3/14/2019

    Municipal wastewater operations require significant energy to operate, but the biogas produced solely through anerobic digestion of sludge isn’t typically enough to offset the electricity and heat load demand at plants. Advanced anaerobic digestion technology, however, can change the equation so wastewater treatment plants can get closer to energy neutrality and in some cases even generate an excess.

  2. Tapping Into A Smart Utility Network To Uphold Water Quality
    8/20/2019

    For municipal water systems, the endless demand to maintain water quality can be challenging. Anytime the quality or pressure drops far enough to necessitate a boil notice, the costs to inform residents and get the problem under control can be extensive. It can also create a public relations nightmare. Newer solutions provide a cost-effective way to build an entire smart utility network to more proactively manage water quality and generate greater ROI.

  3. Lifecycle Management — Enhancing The ROI Of Control System Investments
    10/16/2018

    In water plant operations, there’s no such thing as simply maintaining the status quo. Any utility that is not moving forward is falling behind. Whether a water treatment or wastewater treatment plant (WTP/WWTP) chooses to rely on in-house resources or outside specialists, here are some lifecycle management approaches they can use to upgrade control capabilities without compromising performance or return on investment. 

  4. Tackling Nonpoint Source Nutrient Pollution
    7/15/2018

    Recently, Ohio Governor John Kasich issued an executive order allowing the Ohio Department of Agriculture to set requirements for storing, handling and applying manure as well as nutrient management plans in an effort to reduce nutrient pollution and algal bloom growth in Lake Erie. The order is set to affect 7,000 farms across 2 million acres.

  5. How To Have The Security Conversation With Your Customers & Make Money
    8/13/2019

    Security is the hot topic of the day. Everyone’s talking about it. Your customers are asking about it, they’re expecting you to be the expert, and it’s a conversation you’d rather not have. Can you even make money offering security? You definitely can, if you approach the conversation the right way.

  6. How UF Membrane Fiber Strength Impacts Reuse Success
    7/17/2019

    Advanced technology and more widespread acceptance are driving a growing number of municipalities to adopt the practice of wastewater reuse. Ultrafiltration (UF) has been proven a key in this process, but operators have struggled to keep up with repairs or having to replace older hollow-fiber membranes. Recent advancements in manufacturing have produced more durable membranes that accomplish the task at a lower cost based on the total lifecycle.

  7. All-Natural Biofilm Media Derived From Plant Stock Enhances Clarifier Settling
    6/4/2018

    When clarifiers are not settling like they should, problems arise, including reduced capacities, high sludge volume indexes (SVI) and sludge blanket levels, and infiltration/inflow (I/I) washout issues.

  8. Improve Your Cold Email Reply Rates: 10 Proven Formulas That Work
    2/6/2019

    Pop quiz. What is the first goal of any cold email?  To get it read. Makes sense, right? So what’s the primary goal of your first sentence? The surprisingly simple answer is…to get the second sentence read.

  9. How Will New Trade Agreements Impact The Biopharma Industry?
    11/7/2018

    The Trump administration’s Blueprint to Lower Drug Prices and Reduce Out-of-Pocket Costs highlighted foreign governments “freeriding” off of American investment in innovations.

  10. SPRWS Upgrades To Corrosion-Resistant Zinc-Coated Ductile Iron Water Main
    7/18/2019

    It is no secret that a large portion of the drinking water infrastructure in the United States is near or past its intended design life. Our nation’s water infrastructure needs an overhaul, and the cost of doing so is climbing rapidly. The American Society of Civil Engineering’s 2017 Infrastructure Report Card graded the nation’s drinking water infrastructure a D. According to the American Water Works Association, an estimated $1 trillion is necessary to maintain and expand drinking water service to meet demands over the next 25 years.
