    10/21/2015

    In June 2011, Evoqua was contacted by a manufacturer of battery equipment for electric lift trucks. The systems are routinely used at many large food processing facilities in Texas.

  2. Case Study: Monitoring And Protecting Water Quality In Lake Mead, Nevada
    8/29/2006
    Lake Mead is one of several reservoirs along the Colorado River; however, due to increases in population and agricultural operations in recent decades, this once-expansive lake in the desert is becoming more compromised. While inflow into Lake Mead primarily is from the Colorado River, a small percent is also from rivers on the northern side of the Lake and from Las Vegas Wash on the northwest side. Las Vegas Wash transports treated municipal wastewater effluent, stormwater and urban runoff, and shallow groundwater seepage from the Las Vegas urban area to Boulder Basin in Lake Mead. Effluent flow rates have more than doubled in recent years, prompting concern over potential effects to reservoir water quality, especially since some of the water is pumped for the municipal water treatment plant at Saddle Island

  5. Simply Solving The Grit Problem
    2/27/2017

    The grit particle is a microscopic menace that still confounds many wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) operators. It is not always easy to recognize how much grit is costing you in equipment wear, maintenance, and energy usage, let alone to know the best way to rid your plant of it.

  6. VTScada And OpWorks Provide Advanced Wastewater Reporting And Analysis
    11/17/2015

    Rapid City is the second-largest city in South Dakota, serving over 72,000 residents. Their Water Reclamation Department treats nearly 3.5 billion gallons of wastewater annually.

  7. Polyblend® Mechanical Polymer Activation System Outperforms Hydraulic Polymer Mixing Unit
    7/1/2018

    Henry N. Wochholz Regional Water Recycling Facility (WRWRF) consists of primary, advanced biological secondary and tertiary treatment with advanced total nitrogen removal. Always interested in enhanced treatment performance, the staff members recently examined the polymer use of the existing dewatering belt filter presses. 

  8. Town Of Hillsborough Relies On Hach For Free-Ammonia Testing And Nitrification Control
    1/8/2012
    When Bay-area water wholesaler San Francisco Regional Water System (SFRWS) changed its residual drinking water disinfection process from chlorine to chloramine, the town of Hillsborough’s Water Quality staff faced the challenge of updating its water testing procedures to prevent nitrification and continue to meet state-mandated drinking water quality standards.
  9. Municipal Wastewater Provides A Solution For A Major Chemical Processing Plant
    7/6/2017

    Water scarcity is requiring large industrial plants to investigate conservation options, including reuse of municipal wastewater effluent, in order to grow sustainably while meeting increased demands for fresh water make-up.
