DRINKING WATER ANALYSIS RESOURCES

  • Last year, COVID-19 emerged as a global health threat, in more ways than one. In additional to the toll posed by the virus itself, the pandemic presents a number of other safety threats as priorities and resources shift to tackle the larger concern at hand. In particular, as buildings shut down to accommodate stay-at-home orders, property teams may be suspending routine maintenance tasks for the time being, which enables harmful bacteria to spread until workforces return.

  • The City of Durham is committed to providing safe drinking water to a service population of more than 289,000.  The City’s Department of Water Management (DWM) ensures the delivery of water to approximately 99,000 service connections through 1,400 miles of watermains. Lake Michie and Little River Reservoir are the two sources that deliver raw water to the City’s two treatment plants, using a combination of gravity flow and electric and hydro-powered pumping systems. Together, these plants have the combined treatment capacity of 64 million gallons per day (MGD) with an average demand is 28 MGD.

  • Like many companies, when we launched our 2020 strategic plan in January, we had no idea what the year would hold. We will remember 2020 not only as a year of unprecedented challenges, but of resilience and innovation.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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. 

  • 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.

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

DRINKING WATER ANALYSIS SOLUTIONS

  • M21 Transmitter

    The Millennium II (M21) single channel universal transmitters have been engineered from the ground-up to include the innovative features that managers and operators in the field demand, while providing rock solid day-to-day operation, even in the most extreme conditions. The Millennium II redefines what you expect from a fixed gas detection solution.

  • Water Quality Monitoring: Clarity II™ Turbidimeter

    The Clarity II turbidimeter is intended for the determination of turbidity in water. Low NTU measurement capability, efficient bubble rejection, and easy calibration make Clarity II ideal for monitoring the turbidity of filtered drinking water

  • Ultrapure Water For Determination of Toxic Elements In Environmental Analyses

    In this paper the importance of reagent water quality for toxic element environmental analyses is discussed, and the suitability of fresh ultrapure water produced using MilliporeSigma water purification systems for ICP-OES and ICP-MS trace element analyses in environmental laboratories is demonstrated.

  • Wireless Remote Monitoring With Trimble Telog 32 Series RTUs

    Continuing the tradition of ground breaking products that add exciting new capabilities for smart, remote monitoring in water and wastewater networks.

  • 6920 V2 Sonde The YSI 6920 V2 sonde is an economical logging system, ideal for long-term in situ monitoring and profiling.
