DRINKING WATER DISINFECTION RESOURCES
Xylem Helps South Carolina Utility Eliminate Taste And Odor Issues In Drinking Water
Advanced oxidation treatment system and water treatment plant upgrade save money.
UV Treatment System Fills The Bill For Water Reuse
Small city selects full-featured and low maintenance UV treatment for its water reuse system that easily complies with demanding California Title 22 Regulations.
Cost Benefits Of Process Water Disinfection Via UV Light Sterilizer Technology
For the sake of the productivity and quality of products, as well as the proper upkeep of process equipment, treating process water prior to use is very beneficial, if not vital. One step in treating process water is often disinfection. While there are several chemical options for disinfection, ultraviolet technology can provide several key cost benefits for onsite treatment systems.
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.
Novel Oxidant Lowers Natural Organic Matter Without Creating Disinfection Byproducts
With twice the oxidation potential as that of chlorine, this mineral oxychloride solution can easily break down carbon bonds and simultaneously lowers organic carbon, meets microbial reduction goals, and complies with the regulatory limits on disinfection byproducts. Disinfection by chlorine can be problematic, as chlorine can react with naturally occurring organic compounds resulting in byproducts that have never existed in nature.
Hypochlorite Bleaches Market Continues To Thrive On The Expanding Water Treatment Sector
An inherent vertical of the global specialty chemicals space, hypochlorite bleaches market has been observing remarkable popularity of late. With rising incidences of infectious illnesses on a global scale, the demand for disinfectants, bleaching, and sanitization products is likely to accelerate. Hypochlorite bleaches are popular disinfection products with the ability to terminate a vast array of disease-causing bacteria, fungi, viruses, and fungi, provided they are used with adequate precautionary measures and adhere to specific usage guidelines.
THMs In Drinking Water And Bladder Cancer
The U.S. EPA regulates total trihalomethanes (TTHMs) to reduce risks from bladder cancer and other maladies, but studies suggest there are many other factors to consider.
Calgon Carbon Initiates Emergency Response To PFAS Detection
Blades, Delaware, a small town in Sussex County, provides drinking water to more than 1,300 residential and business locations throughout the community. In 1981, the citizens of Blades voted to improve their water and sewage facilities by establishing a central water supply and tying all properties into the nearby Seaford Sewer System. By February of 1982, the project was complete and since then the town has had a clean and safe municipal water supply.
Analyzing Water Quality Parameters When Choosing AOP Systems For Water Treatment
In water and wastewater treatment, chemistry is king. Treatment options are evaluated depending on the quality of water to be treated and the treatment application. Treatment systems including AOP systems, are designed to specifically target certain contaminants and remove or reduce them from the water. This takes places through the power of chemical reactions. Even biological treatments involve chemistry at their core.
