On-Site Disinfection Generation Enables City To Provide High Quality Water For Industrial Food Processing Customers
On-Site Disinfection Generation Enables City To Provide High Quality Water For Industrial Food Processing Customers

The city of Buhl, Idaho, obtains all of its drinking water from groundwater sources through multiple wells. Prior to 2009, the city did not treat the groundwater but only added chlorine in the form of bulk 12.5% sodium hypochlorite to provide a disinfectant residual. A combination of factors including: changes in EPA and state DEQ regulatory requirements, growth of the residential population and growth of the industrial food processing customers forced the City to build a new water treatment plant to provide filtration to address the naturally occurring arsenic present in the groundwater.

INDUSTRIAL WHITE PAPERS AND CASE STUDIES

  • How To Fix High pH And Comply With The Clean Water Act
    How To Fix High pH And Comply With The Clean Water Act

    When the Clean Water Act was enacted, one of the intentions of this legislation was to reduce the untreated industrial waste water burden on publically owned waste water treatment plants (POTW) so that industrial wastewater would only load the treatment plant to the same extent as ordinary household sanitary waste. Industrial facilities that generated process wastewater had to begin pre-treatment of the water before it could be returned to the local POTW.

  • AMD Treatment Plant Helps To Restore The Susquehanna
    AMD Treatment Plant Helps To Restore The Susquehanna

    For 30 years, the DEP diverted water from the abandoned Barnes and Tucker mines from the Susquehanna River basin for treatment in a system that discharged into the Ohio River watershed. BAMR sought a solution that would restore flow to the Susquehanna River at the request of the Susquehanna River Basin Commission.

  • MABR Is The Big Cheese For This Dairy Farming WWTP
    MABR Is The Big Cheese For This Dairy Farming WWTP

    Hayogev is a residential development in the rural area of Jezreel Valley, with 1000 homes, agricultural fields and dairy farms. Located in an open field next to small farms, the local treatment facility handles wastewater from HaYogev and Midrach Oz. The customer was looking for a localized wastewater treatment solution to replace the existing pond system, which faced difficulties in treating the wastewater due to high levels of nutrients. A new state-level regulation concerning reclaimed water required the wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) operator to reduce the nutrients in the effluent stream. The solution had to be odorless and quiet, have low power consumption, and use the existing pond and structure.

  • Overcoming Water Scarcity Challenges On Providenciales Island

    The residents and industries of Providenciales Island are completely dependent on fresh water produced by a single desalination plant. In 2007, ITT Flowtronex was hired to replace the plant’s overworked pumping system and add a booster pumping station to the distribution system. One of the challenges they faced in designing controls for the system was how to maintain the public water supply while the island’s undersized ground water storage tanks were removed and replaced with a large single tank in the same location, a three to four month process.

  • Wastewater Treatment In Oil Refineries
    Wastewater Treatment In Oil Refineries

    Refineries are among the major consumers of water that has both process and non-process origins. The average refinery requires 2.5 gallons of water for every gallon of crude oil processed. Depending on the type of crude oil, composition of condensate and treatment processes, the characteristics of refinery wastewater varies widely. The design and operation of modern refinery wastewater treatment plants are challenging and are driven by technology. This article will highlight the most common types of waste streams in a refinery and suitable wastewater treatment strategies.

    Thermal Mass Flow Meter Helps Mud Logging Contractor Meet U.S. EPA Flare Gas Emissions Monitoring Requirements

    Upstream oil/gas production companies around the globe depend on mud logging service companies to analyze mud samples that help them maintain the correct direction for their drilling field operations. In mud logging, samples of rock cuttings from bore holes are brought to the surface by recirculating drilling media (mud) for analysis by a mobile laboratory to determine the lithology and fluid content of the sample.
