  • Value of Wave Integration With PRVs

    Distribution system water main breaks are a significant burden to communities and water systems not only due to disruption of water service to customers, but also due to significant economic burdens in the form of pipe replacement costs, excavation costs, and even insurance reimbursements. Read the full white paper to learn the KETOS Wave can be easily installed into existing PRVs to monitor the pressure and flow in the downstream side of the valve and proactively act in real-time as needed.

  • Save Valuable Time With Automated Microbial Testing

    Water treatment operators balance their time between a wide range of responsibilities. On any given day they could be preparing chemicals, performing maintenance and miscellaneous repairs, reviewing data, collecting samples, and running a variety of tests. In balancing these competing demands, some important duties might not get the time required to truly maximize benefits.

  • Mitigating Capital Upgrades To A Wastewater Treatment Plant Using DNA Sequencing

    A municipal wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) was planning to carry out an expensive capital upgrade to improve treatment performance and bring the plant into compliance. A study was done to determine if alternative solutions to the upgrade could be found.

  • 2020 Industry Forecast: Treatment Moves Down The Line

    It’s no secret that safe and readily available water is important for public health, can boost economic growth and help reduce poverty. But factors such as climate change, growing populations, natural disasters, increasing water scarcity, and urbanization continue to challenge water systems around the world. 

  • Preparing To Tackle The Hydra Of LCR Revisions

    As a journalist serving the water industry — but not yet a seasoned technical veteran — I attended a recent Lead In Drinking Water Forum sponsored by AWWA NJ to learn about the challenges of complying with the proposed Lead and Copper Rule Revisions (LCRR). What I heard impressed upon me the technical, administrative, and logistical challenges of delivering safe, lead-free drinking water all the way to user taps. Here are my takeaways.

  • Moneyball For Water And Wastewater Treatment

    The movie and sports term has infiltrated the business world and has important implications for the water/wastewater industry.

  • Calibrating Success: Improved Tools To Maintain Flowmeter Accuracy

    Water utilities with highly successful monitoring programs tend to share a common trait: they have a well-defined plan for calibration that emphasizes frequency and tracking. However, when done properly, this process is time-consuming and often leads to unnecessary labor and downtime. The good news is that advanced metering technology is available for plants to get a better handle on the instrument’s performance with significantly less effort.

  • Water Monitoring's Triple Threat: Bad Habits, Bad Readings, Bad Results

    When water and wastewater plant operators can’t get accurate flow measurements or analytical readings — or lack confidence in their instruments’ readings — it creates challenges with the process. When substandard water goes to homes and causes a boil order, or discharge pollutes a lake or reservoir, the resulting bad press, fines, and potential lawsuits erode public confidence. Avoiding these kinds of problems is rooted in good preventive maintenance habits.

  • Sounding The Alarm On Silent Noncompliance

    Water and wastewater utility operators work diligently to operate within strict guidelines, ensuring their facilities are producing the best drinking water and highest quality effluent possible. Despite all their efforts, however, it can be easy to fall outside of regulatory compliance without even being aware. The key to avoiding problems like these is to understand how silent noncompliance can happen and knowing when to raise a red flag.

    The Swan AMI DIST series offers three options for measuring chlorine, pH, conductivity and Turbidity on one easy to install, easy to maintain panel.

  • Veterinary Drug Residue Analysis Using The AutoMate-Q40: An Automated Solution To QuEChERS

    QuEChERS is a Quick-Easy-Cheap-Effective-Rugged-Safe extraction method that has been developed for the determination of pesticide residues in agricultural commodities.

  • Improved Efficiencies In TOC Wastewater Analysis For Standard Method 5310B And EPA Method 415 Total organic carbon (TOC) measurement is of vital importance to the operation of water treatment due to organic compounds comprising a large group of water pollutants. TOC has been around for many years, and although it is a relatively simple analysis in theory, operational efficiency is paramount.
  • Sievers TOC Analyzers

    SUEZ Water Technologies & Solutions manufactures Sievers Total Organic Carbon (TOC) Analyzers that enable near real-time reporting of organic carbon levels for treatment optimization, quality control, and regulatory compliance. Accurate measurement of TOC throughout a water treatment plant allows operators to reduce TOC levels, control DBPs, and implement efficiency and cost savings into the treatment processes. SUEZ offers a variety of laboratory, on-line and portable analyzers that measure TOC levels ranging from 0.03 ppb to 50,000 ppm.

  • Application Note: YSI 600 Optical Monitoring System Used To Protect Lake Oconee, Georgia Water Quality Northern Georgia is experiencing unprecedented development; consequently, water quality in many of its watersheds is in jeopardy of severe degradation. The State of Georgia, Environmental Protection Division (EPD) has implemented an NPDES monitoring and enforcement program designed to prevent construction activities from impacting water quality
