Wastewater Treatment Case Studies and White Papers

  1. The Most Cost Effective Disinfection Alternative For A Wastewater Plant To Meet Regulatory Requirements

    The Valley East Wastewater Treatment Plant (Sudbury, Ontario, Canada) hired an engineering firm to evaluate three disinfection options including chlorination followed by dechlorination, ultraviolet (UV) light irradiation and VigorOx WWT II. Read the full case study to learn more.

  2. Take Charge Of Your Facility’s Water Usage…

    Water is a precious resource! Now, more than ever, businesses and facilities must take charge of their water usage to help with water conservation and lower water bills.

  3. White Paper: Water Reuse Strategies: Steel Industry Case Studies

    The steel industry has historically presented challenges for effective water treatment because it is a high water user and the applications may involve high heat, critical noncontact cooling, direct contact cooling, high suspended solids waters, oil and grease contamination, and complicated cascading. By Dave Christophersen, Veolia Water Technologies

  4. Reduce The Risks Of Tank Gauging By Using Work Practice Control

    Manual tank gauging is a common oilfield activity that’s resulted in multiple worker deaths in recent years. By using work practice control, operators can reduce the risks it poses significantly.

  5. Duperon Operates Flawlessly During Hurricanes In Louisiana

    When Hurricanes Katrina and Rita struck the Gulf Coast in 2005, the impact was immediate and devastating.

  6. Case Study: City And County Of Broomfield, CO

    The City and County of Broomfield, Colorado, with a population of 48,000 was in need of improved wastewater treatment to meet effluent guidelines for phosphorus, ammonia, nitrates and BOD removal from their wastewater.

  7. Desalination Serves Coastal Argentine City

    When a series of water crises in 2014 disrupted conventional utility services in the coastal Argentine city of Caleta Olivia, the city needed a way to ensure an uninterrupted water supply.

  8. Coming Clean With The Environment

    With population and energy costs rising, Long Island wastewater treatment plants figured out a cost-effective way to control pollution and conserve resources. By Jon Richens, senior process engineer, WesTech Engineering

  9. Direct Filtration Of Spring Water

    The Franklin Water Treatment Plant, near the Utah/Idaho state border, serves approximately 600 residents. Traditionally, water was drawn from springs and chlorinated.

  10. Brewery Reuses Water For Factory Wash-Down

    Looking to reduce its water footprint, Shepherd Neame Brewery invested in a complete membrane bioreactor (MBR) wastewater recovery and re-use plant. Learn how the new plant's aeration system has helped to reduce the brewery's water-to-beer ratio to an industry-leading value of 3:1.
