Wastewater Treatment Case Studies and White Papers

  1. Eliminate Your Pump Clogging Caused By Flushables
    3/28/2014

    The flushable market is on the rise, led by marketing efforts to position these products as more convenient, more effective cleaning tools than their dry paper counterparts. It is no surprise that pump clog problems seem to be increasing at the same time.

  2. Aeration System Eliminates Odors From Winery Wastewater Lagoons
    5/1/2017

    A California winery was having odor problems from its wastewater evaporation lagoons. The wash and wastewater from this facility contain large amounts of organic matter. The wastewater is collected and pumped to two main lagoons for evaporation, percolation, and sprinkler irrigation.

  3. Oxygen Removal From Feedwater In A Central District Heating System
    11/20/2013

    In central district heating systems, heated water from power plants is distributed to densely populated areas via insulated piping networks. High water quality is required to maintain the integrity of pipes, storage tanks, and other infrastructure in such systems. This case study explains how a Dutch power station achieved an O2 specification of <10 ppb for storage water tank filling by installing a chemical-free deoxygenation system.

  4. Significant Energy Saving Resulting From Change Of Thickening Technology
    4/7/2017

    During the summer of 2015 the Waging WWTP in the Bavarian Chiemgau district was desperately looking for an energy-efficient, high-performance sludge thickening plant to replace the centrifuge they had been using. The objective was to optimize digester capacity, gas yield and sludge handling in the overall process on site. Read more about their successful implementation.

  5. Springdale, Arkansas' Headworks MS Bar Screen "Hunts!" As It Removes Fence Posts
    10/11/2017

    Northwest Arkansas has been one of the faster growing regions of the United States in the early 2000s. Driven by the growth of the poultry industry as well as education and health professions, the city of Springdale has seen significant economic and population growth. There is also a thriving leisure and hospitality industry as recreation in the Ozarks continues to grow. The population is now estimated to be approximately 80,000 people compared to 46,000 in the 2000 census.

  6. Waste Lagoon Rehabilitation A New Look At An Old Problem
    9/19/2011

    Throughout the last half-century the municipal and industrial wastewater treatment industry has depended heavily upon the use of waste lagoons in order to provide relatively clean water that could be returned to the environment. These are often called stabilization lagoons. By Jim Dartez, RELIANT Water Technologies

  7. City Validates Innovative Reuse Treatment Options Without RO
    3/13/2017

    Hollywood, Florida’s 55.5 MGD Southern Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant (SRWWTP) treats wastewater from Hollywood and six neighboring municipalities in the southern region of Broward County. Florida’s outfall rule requires the city to begin a process to largely eliminate the use of its ocean outfall and implement 20.4 MGD of additional reuse on an annual basis.

  8. Fixed-Film Treatment System Handles Fluctuating Population Changes With Ease
    7/23/2015

    A retreat and camp facility struggling with variable flow conditions and associated wastewater issues turns to a fixed-film treatment system designed just for that application. The results have far exceeded expectations: treatment quality surpasses permit levels and regular operation and maintenance requirements are at an all-time low.

  9. Has The Ideal Biocarrier Finally Been Developed?
    6/1/2017

    In order to improve the efficiency of biofilm technologies, a high-performance biocarrier has been developed, based on requests for ideal carrier characteristics.

  10. Rapid Deployment Of Mobile Membrane Water Treatment For Urgent Pit Water Needs
    4/11/2016

    During operation, a remote mine site in Nevada experienced a pit flood as a direct result of groundwater recharge where approximately 40 million gallons of water flooded the open pit and brought mine operations to a halt.
