SOURCE WATER RESOURCES

  • More than one in five households in the United States depend on septic or onsite systems to treat their wastewater. These systems provide critical water quality infrastructure, but they usually are not designed to remove nitrogen to the point that sufficiently protects coastal marine ecosystems. As a result, septic systems are known to contribute to eutrophication (excess nutrients), hypoxia (low levels of oxygen), and harmful algal blooms in marine and estuarine waters.

  • For the city of Beaverton, Oregon, the “Beaverton Purple Pipe” is a new water system that routes treated stormwater to irrigate green spaces like parks, school grounds and residential yards. This new program puts stormwater to use that could not otherwise be used, taking less water from the Tualatin River.

  • Per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances, otherwise known as PFAS, are a large group of human-made organic compounds with properties that make many of them toxic and persistent in the environment. PFAS have been manufactured and used since the 1940s in items such as fire-fighting foams, adhesives, cosmetics, paper products, and stain and water repellants. Until now, researchers have been unable to destroy PFAS in a way that has potential for larger scale use. 

  • Dating back to colonial times, Native Tribes in North America have often watched wide-ranging access to the land and water of their forefathers diminish over time. Although various policies and settlements have attempted to restore some of those opportunities, the bottom line is that many of today’s tribal territories do not enjoy the same water quality as adjacent states or communities. A new U.S. EPA action plan is designed to narrow that gap.

  • As so-called “forever chemicals” get more attention from regulators and the public at large, the pressure is on to eliminate these pervasive contaminants — forever.

  • While municipal wastewater treatment facilities fight hard to keep waterways clean, other (“nonpoint”) sources contribute greatly to environmental pollution. But there is funding, and now guidance, available to help solve the problem.

  • With the funding brought forth by the bipartisan infrastructure bill passed late last year, as well as aggressive policies and regulation to rid water supplies of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) and lead, 2022 shapes up as the year we finally address our industry’s most troubling and challenging contamination issues in a meaningful way.

  • Fresh water is a vital resource for human life. However, population growth and enhanced living standards, together with the expansion of industrial and agricultural activities, are creating unprecedented demands on clean water supplies all over the world.

  • Data center operators and many of the world’s largest tech companies are taking steps to ensure the long-term sustainability of water supplies by quantifying water usage, understanding how to assess associated service risks, and developing mitigation plans that will allow them to maintain the reliability of their operations – all while reducing overall water usage.

  • Satellites that can detect underground leaks, solar panels to pull water out of air in deserts, wastewater treatment plants in the bottom of high rise buildings that can churn out fertilizer… and hundreds (if not thousands!) of others.

DRINKING WATER SOLUTIONS

  • Real-Time Water Quality Data For Agriculture

    We arm farmers with mission-critical water data to help enhance crop yield and taste. KETOS delivers valuable insights for fluctuations in deficiency and toxicity.

  • MECTAN® Grit Chamber

    Grit is a source of problems in wastewater treatment facilities, which causes wear and tear on mechanical equipment, decreases the effective treatment volume in basins, causes pipe blockages and generally increases operating costs

  • TrojanUVFlex – Wastewater Disinfection System

    The TrojanUVFlex® is ideal for non-potable reuse and other wastewater applications where the treatment of filtered tertiary effluent is required. It is designed with features to make installation and operation simpler, faster and more cost-effective than ever before. Built on the TrojanUV Solo Lamp® Technology platform, TrojanUVFlex allows for energy-efficient high-intensity delivery of UV light in an extremely compact footprint.

  • Why Should We Care About NSF/ANSI 61 Certification?

    According to National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), it's a set of standards relating to water treatment and establishes criteria for the control of equipment that comes in contact with either potable water or products that support the production of water.

  • NeoTech D428™

    The NeoTech D428™ is specially designed to disinfect water and is an essential component in advanced oxidation processes.

  • Water & Wastewater Treatment Products

    Aquatech's wide range of water treatment technologies makes us one of the only companies in the world that can take single point responsibility on an industrial water treatment project.
