  1. Achieving Level Pressure At Challenging Points In Distribution Systems
    5/31/2019

    When drinking water leaves a treatment plant through giant pipes, with the help of huge pumps, the pressure can exceed 200 psi. The high pressure is a necessity because water must travel a long distance in some cases. Water towers scattered throughout the distribution system aid in the process so it can reach all utility customers. The problem is that not all distribution points in a water system are created equal.

  2. How To Conduct Water Quality Analysis For Ozone Disinfection
    5/24/2018

    Ozone disinfection has long been a critical process in the wastewater treatment industry. And, because ozone is relied on so heavily to oxidize a wide variety of potential wastewater contaminants, water quality analysis during the disinfection process is paramount. Once the ozone process itself is understood, its water quality ramifications and the quality parameters that offer insight into its efficacy can be analyzed and taken into account.

  3. Trade Compliance: The Increasing Challenge Of Transporting Material In And Outside Of The US
    5/28/2019

    Have you noticed that it has become increasingly difficult to transport your material into and out of the United States? That’s because it has!

  4. 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.

  5. Getting What You Need In A Laboratory Hood

    Understand what information you should be communicating to the manufacturer to ensure you get the best lab containment equipment, built correctly the first time.

  6. What You Need To Know About 1,2,3-TCP And Drinking Water
    7/9/2018

    As our ability to measure contaminants at ever smaller concentrations improves, “emerging contaminants” are on the rise. Per the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), emerging contaminants are chemicals or materials characterized by a perceived, potential, or real threat to human health or the environment.

  7. If A Pipe Leaks In A Forest, Does It Make A Sound? (Part II)
    9/6/2018

    If A Pipe Leaks In A Forest, Does It Make A Sound? (Part I) addressed condition assessment and leak detection from the perspective of surprises that can arise when “hidden” problems are revealed by acoustic technology. This article introduces several more eye-opening experiences with permanent and mobile acoustic leak detection equipment, plus examples of just how expensive undetected leaks can become when they turn into full-blown water main breaks.

  8. The Future Of Wastewater Management Planning
    5/18/2018

    As capacity requirements change and grow, it is essential to have agility when modeling system expansions and their potential impacts on current collections assets. How can wastewater management systems be modeled to address all current and future hydraulic capacity needs? 

  9. Improving Clinical Trials For Rare Diseases Of The Central Nervous System
    2/8/2019

    Traditionally hard-to-treat neurological diseases – including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s – which were once considered to be common, are being reclassified as a collection of rare diseases based on genetic markers. This article shares new strategies for enrolling patients and outlines the challenge of measuring the efficacy of the experimental treatment and determining whether it’s producing the desired effect.

  10. The Hidden Dangers Of Manganese In Drinking Water
    5/21/2018

    Evidence indicates that manganese (Mn) is more than a nuisance: it's a threat to health. It's time to get serious about removing it from drinking water.
