Water and Wastewater Solutions For Industry

  1. How Golf Courses Deal With Wastewater

    Maintaining a golf course has a lot of challenges. Often, one of those challenges is how to clean your golf course care equipment. The equipment you use to clean and maintain your golf course very quickly finds grass clippings, soil, and other debris enmeshed in it, and you need to remove these materials regularly. The type of washing you need to do to clean that equipment, however, creates wastewater — and improper wastewater disposal procedures could see you running afoul of U.S. EPA regulations and receiving unwanted fines.

  2. Design-Build Using Actiflo Technology

    A state-of-the-art 695-MW power generation facility was recently installed in the Northeastern U.S. to serve the country’s highest demand market. Its innovative power generation technologies, emissions control systems and process efficiencies make it one of the cleanest, most efficient and technologically advanced supercritical pulverized coal (SPC) power plants in the U.S.

  3. Desalination Plants Benefit From MagMeters With Unique Virtual Reference Feature

    In certain applications, conventional grounding of electromagnetic flowmeters can pose special challenges. This article illustrates those challenges and sheds light on a unique solution that is especially suitable for problematic applications, some of which are found in desalination facilities.

  4. In Times of Drought: 9 Economic Facts About Water In The United States

    This Hamilton Project memo presents nine economic facts that provide relevant background context to the water crisis in the United States.

  5. Thinking About Medicines And Personal Care Products In Drinking Water

    Examples of medicines and personal care products detected in water include antimicrobial materials found in toothpastes and hand soaps, fragrances, prescription medicines, bug sprays, and sunscreen. Concentrations of these substances detected in water are typically very small and are currently not regulated at the federal level in the U.S.

  6. An Open Letter To Jeff Bezos: Use Your Resources To Protect Our Most Precious Resource

    Economist Harold Pollack's New York Times article suggesting priorities for your philanthropic work was a fun read for those of us who would love to imagine what we would do with $131 billion. Unlike Pollack, I'm not going to tell you how to give away your money — you earned it, it's yours, and you can do what you want with it.

  7. Repair Of Major Damage To High Density Polyethylene Wastewater Pipeline

    Leprino Foods, the world's largest mozzarella cheese producer, operates two plants that share one wastewater pipeline – a 16” SDR11 High Density Polyethylene Pipeline (operating at approximately 160 PSI). During dirt work an “auger” hit the wastewater pipeline and drilled an 8” diameter hole in the line. Leprino needed immediate access to a repair fitting for this line.

  8. Feds Take Steps To Regulate Water For Food

    Due to new rules proposed by the FDA, monitoring services and new pumps will likely be shopping-list items for food processors.

  9. Fixing The EPA's Clean Water Problem

    A chasm in the Clean Water Act, coupled with EPA’s misguided direction, create an environmental suing spree that threatens to cost everyone that pays a sewer bill $100 billion and more — for pollution you didn’t cause, using remedies that don’t work. There’s a way to turn this around and help the taxpayer and the environment, based on lessons learned in Iowa and Idaho.

  10. Reaching Zero Liquid Discharge: A Starter’s Guide

    Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) systems employ cutting-edge technologies to minimize water use within a given industrial facility and maximize the reuse of its processed wastewater. In the perfect ZLD system, no effluent ever leaves the factory, savings are immense, discharge and reuse requirements are met with ease, and the praise of conservation groups is bestowed fervently.
