DRINKING WATER TREATMENT RESOURCES
Calcium Hypochlorite Feeder Selected As Primary Solution For Municipal Water Treatment Plants
Long Beach Township is the largest town on Long Beach Island, New Jersey. With 18 miles of beaches, the town is a major tourist destination. Population exploded during the summer months from approximately 3,000 to over 100,000. This can be a challenge for the town's drinking water facilities, with demand increasing exponentially during the tourist season.
Byers Gains Stable Chlorination And Reduced Maintenance With Constant Chlor® MC5 System
Byers is an unincorporated rural community in Arapahoe County, Colorado, approximately 50 miles east of Denver. Byers Water & Sanitation District provides drinking water to this area. The district operates five wells – each approximately 700 feet deep. Two wells are typically used in the winter and four in the summer. Annual water use averages 140,000 gallons per day for the district’s 500 active service connections.
Biofouling Control In Cooling Towers With Halogen Stabilizer
Biofouling in cooling towers is undesirable because it can reduce heat transfer efficiency, restrict water flow, and accelerate corrosion rates. Of even greater concern is the fact that pathogen growth in cooling towers can lead to disease transmission. Given the favorable growth environment of a cooling tower, these microorganisms can reproduce, proliferate and form complex biofilm communities. Legionella bacteria, which cause Legionnaires’ disease, are one of the greatest concerns from a public health standpoint because infections are often lethal and cooling towers are the most frequently reported non-potable water source of Legionnaires’ disease outbreaks (Llewellyn 2017).
Breaking The Causative Chain Of Legionellosis
Legionnaires’ disease first garnered public attention in 1976. After attending an American Legion convention at a Philadelphia hotel, 221 people became ill, with 34 dying of a mysterious illness. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) launched a major investigation, and in 1977 identified the responsible bacterium, naming it Legionella.
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.
Utility Enhances Wireless Wastewater Monitoring With Trimble Telog Ru-35 Technology
Trimble Telog® technology helps Plainfield Area Regional Sewerage Authority (PARSA) become proactive to emerging problems.
Growth Opportunities Are On The Horizon In The Water And Wastewater Treatment Equipment Market As Public Concern On PFAS Rises
Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a family of ever-expanding, complex man-made compounds that have leached into our soil, air, and water. There are nearly 5,000 different types of PFAS found in various products like nonstick cookware, food packaging, cleaning supplies, paints, waterproof jackets, firefighting foams, carpets, and more.
Using IoT-Based Tank Level Monitoring For Volume Measurement
Level monitoring systems has successfully triumphed every implementation. Their deployments allow the users to measure the level of liquid stored in a container of any shape, size, orientation, or material. Powered with the advanced telemetric technology of Internet of Things, these systems measure liquid level without making any contact with the liquid and transmit the readings to a comprehensive platform suite.
