  • The Real History Of The First Thanksgiving
    The Real History Of The First Thanksgiving

    Water supplies remain our most valuable and necessary resource. Overused and often contaminated throughout most of history, water was no less of a concern back in the 1600s when the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock than it is for us today.

  • What’s In Your Water?
    What’s In Your Water?

    When is the last time you took a moment to stop, and smell your water? A continuous supply of clean and safe drinking water is something that most people take for granted. We rarely go to the tap doubting that the water will be clean and safe. Recently, the general population and water supply professionals have become concerned about the safety and protection of our drinking water supplies.

  • Flow Measurement Meets Advanced Metering Infrastructure
    Flow Measurement Meets Advanced Metering Infrastructure

    As utilities update their metering to automatic meter reading (AMR) or advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) systems, integration with measurement devices in the distribution system has many benefits. McCrometer’s Dan Hardin recently sat down with Water Online Radio to discuss the flow measurement company’s Smart Output protocol that allows mag meters to connect to a water district’s AMI/AMR system.

  • Lessons Learned From Flint
    Lessons Learned From Flint

    We all hope that the Flint Water Crisis – where cost-cutting measures led to the drinking water supply to become severely tainted with lead – was an isolated incident. However, it is not impossible that a similar event could happen again, especially in a similarly  desperate city with limited financial resources. Here are a few key points that should be considered to avoid repeating such a tragedy.

  • The Ultimate DAF System Design Buyer’s Guide: Part 2
    The Ultimate DAF System Design Buyer’s Guide: Part 2

    When you buy a DAF system, you want something that is going to hold up in a harsh environment. You’re going to use the thing for the foreseeable future and the last thing you want is something you have to replace because it didn’t hold up.  DAF System design decisions matter!

  • An Open Letter To President-Elect Trump On Water
    An Open Letter To President-Elect Trump On Water

    During the long campaign, you ran on a platform of change, and since the election, you have charted a course toward improving our nation’s infrastructure. I urge you to focus some of that change and a significant portion of those infrastructure improvements on the one issue at the center of survival for all Americans, regardless of whom they voted for — water.

  • OMNI™ Verification (V²) Portable Test Meter Datasheet

    Mechanical water meters gradually wear down and lose accuracy, preventing you from realizing full revenue potential. Typically, large meters in commercial and industrial services often represent 40 to 60 percent of your revenue, so maintaining their performance is crucial to your operations.

  • Ultrasonic Level Measurement In Water And Wastewater Plants
    Ultrasonic Level Measurement In Water And Wastewater Plants

    Radar technology is often viewed as the “best” method of level measurement, but this isn’t necessarily true in the water industry.

SHS & SHP Sidehill Screens SHS & SHP Sidehill Screens

Simple And Economical Solids Separation
The simplicity of the SHS and SHP Sidehill Screens make them an excellent choice static screening applications. With no motors or moving parts the Sidehill Screens let gravity do the work as effluent flows down the screening media.  The screening elements are fixed, curved, slotted, wedgewire screens oriented horizontally across the direction of flow. The screening surface is positioned at a steeply sloped angle providing an effective means of quickly stripping of liquid and allowing the solids to slide off the bottom of the screen.

  • Carbon Adsorption & Reactivation
    Carbon Adsorption & Reactivation

    Chemical, petrochemical, and oil-refining plants are process-intensive operations with regulatory requirements to protect the surrounding water and air from the effects of industrial pollution. These external demands are matched by equally compelling internal pressures to address product purification needs, find alternatives to utilizing costly fresh water in production processes, reduce the carbon footprint, and operate efficiently and profitably.

  • Power Plant Water: Wanted Dead <u>And</u> Alive
    Power Plant Water: Wanted Dead And Alive

    Water is the lifeblood of electrical power plants, whether they are water-cooled steam plants or turbine-spinning hydroelectric installations. Regardless of how the facility generates electricity, there is a growing awareness that each power plant is part of its own, unique industrial watershed — drawing water from the environment, altering its contents and temperature, releasing some to the atmosphere as steam, and returning the rest to receiving waters.

  • Preparing For Algae Season
    Preparing For Algae Season

    For water treatment operators and utility officials, the summer months don’t just mean sunshine, pool parties, and barbecues. The season also brings the peak time for algal blooms, the toxic clouds formed in surface water thanks to increased nutrient contamination and rising temperatures. With rising instances of toxic algae around the country and increased regulations for eliminating it, utilities have had to keep pace.

    How To Ensure Your Utility Complies With The LT2

    The U.S. EPA’s Long Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule (LT2) was adopted in 2006 to modify the Safe Drinking Water Act and more tightly control the spread of Cryptosporidium, a microorganism that can cause gastrointestinal infection if ingested. Since its inception, the rule has posed a treatment challenge to utilities that are susceptible to the tiny contaminant. But which utilities are at risk? And how should they approach treatment?
