Wastewater Treatment Case Studies and White Papers

  1. Quick And Effective Refurbishment Of Chlorine Scrubber Saves Over $100,000 Of Budgeted Funds
    11/18/2016

    The Integrity Municipal Services (IMS) team successfully cleaned and reconditioned an emergency chlorine vapor scrubber in Cheyenne, WY and did so while providing substantial savings to the City of Cheyenne, Board of Public Utilities (BOPU).

  2. Energy-Efficient System Design For Wastewater Treatment Plants
    2/13/2018

    Energy is the single highest operating cost in a wastewater treatment plant. More specifically, the energy to operate blowers for aeration is the single highest energy consumer. 

  3. Continuous Phosphate Monitoring Improves Reliability
    11/11/2013

    When municipalities choose to manually feed phosphates into their potable water, this often creates an over-feed of chemicals. Learn how employing an automatic-dosing phosphate analyzer can reduce operating costs and improve reliability.

  4. Innovative Thickener Replaces Gravity Thickener And Improves Performance
    4/7/2017

    The Chiquita WRF plant was looking to improve the performance of their existing gravity thickeners better than the 2.3% DS that they were previously achieving. In their search for a solution they discovered the S-Disc technology from Huber Technology.

  5. Why Municipalities Can’t Afford To Do What They’ve Always Done, Choose Closed Vessel UV
    1/9/2017

    Ultraviolet disinfection is now a standard feature in most wastewater treatment systems. UV has also been embraced by the drinking water community as an effective barrier against chlorine tolerant organisms such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia. The technology is widely favored in wastewater treatment due to its non-chemical nature, the fact that no subsequent dechlorination process is required and its ability to be unselective in disinfection performance.

  6. State-Of-The-Art Treatment Equipment Greatly Reduces Plant’s Energy Consumption
    3/25/2015

    Driven by compliance with more stringent water treatment standards, the Fond du Lac Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) leveraged the upgrade opportunity to improve beyond limiting ammonia effluent levels. The plant improved energy fficiency, reduced maintenance and operating costs, and eliminated bypasses into Lake Winnebago during high rainfall.

  7. Crafting H2O — The Science And Art Of Beer Making
    9/4/2018

    Cincinnati-based MadTree Brewing Company is serious about how they make their beer. Their scientific approach means that they also pay close attention to the water they use, a message they’re more than happy to share.

  8. Florida County Aims for Full Usage Of Reclaimed Water
    3/28/2017

    In 2016 Hillsborough County Public Utilities, a forward thinking organization, initiated the first direct potable reuse pilot project in Florida. In its efforts to utilize 100 percent of its reclaimed water, the progressive utility created a successful program to effectively suspend surface water discharges. The pilot project validated direct potable reuse, which is now a key initiative for many central Florida utilities due to the implementation of the Central Florida Water Initiative requiring the additional utilization of reuse water resources.

  9. Natural Gas Fractionation Process Facilities Rely On Flow Switch For Relief Valve Leak Monitoring
    12/2/2017

    A company with multiple natural gas liquid (NGL) fractionation process facilities located in the Southeastern U.S became concerned about a series of missed events and nuisance alarms caused by the flow switches installed to monitor potential overpressure situations with its pressure relief valves. The company wanted a highly reliable flow instrument solution that would detect a real event and avoid the lost productivity of nuisance alarms.

  10. Bulk Emergency Chlorine Vapor Scrubber System Restored For Oklahoma City
    9/19/2017

    As a bulk emergency chlorine vapor scrubber system approached the end of its anticipated 20-year useful life, the city engaged Integrity Municipal Systems, LLC (IMS) inspected the equipment and proposed a system refurbishment plan that would ensure proper system performance and safe storage of the 30,000 gallons of corrosive caustic soda contained within it.
