SOURCE WATER RESOURCES

  • Thank you, EPA, for listening to tribes, communities, and supporters — and moving closer to forever stopping catastrophic projects like Pebble Mine.

  • According to the latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Report, the world is getting warmer, and in the western United States, that translates into drought and significantly increased wildfire activity. In September 2020, western Oregon experienced unprecedented wildfires that dramatically affected people’s lives, infrastructure, and the environment, and impacted drinking water sources.

  • Water is the source of life on our planet and an essential resource for agriculture. Agriculture accounts for 70 percent of the consumption of this resource. At the same time, water is not endless and many regions today suffer from an acute shortage.

  • The Colorado River at Kremmling in Grand County will enjoy a big bump in flows from August into October as Denver Water pays off a hefty water debt. The rising flows serve as a good example of how Colorado’s intricate system of water rights can drive river flows higher when they might typically be lower as autumn settles in.

  • If you’ve ever jumped in a lake during the summer and felt warmer water on the surface and as you sunk deeper, you felt the cooler water at the bottom, you experienced the effects of thermal stratification. Though this is natural, imagine you go to jump in the lake and it has a thick layer of algae growing and it smells. Would you still jump in?

  • The ability of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) to contaminate everything in their wake and resist degradation in nature has propelled these “forever chemicals” into a serious public health concern over the past two decades, galvanizing calls for sweeping federal legislation.

  • Whether decision-makers consider it ultimately attainable or not, there is something positive to be said about striving toward ‘net zero leakage’ in water distribution systems saddled with high non-revenue-water (NRW) losses. The key is taking affordable steps — like those described below — toward identifying and mitigating the most egregious water loss locations in a distribution system, based on readily accessible data.

  • For water treatment decision-makers already sensitive to issues involving water scarcity, energy consumption, and environmental stewardship, the concept of sustainability is more than just a buzzword. It is becoming a means of survival in response to changing climate impacts, high energy costs, public scrutiny, and limited financial resources. Here is how better awareness, focus, and execution can make sustainability a reality.

  • Organizations don’t earn Wall Street Journal recognition for being ranked ninth among the world’s most sustainably managed companies without a companywide commitment to embrace substantial operational changes. Here are examples of sustainability opportunities available in water treatment applications and how those opportunities can benefit utilities, water-consuming industries, consulting engineers, and construction contractors.

  • The Owasco Outlet in Auburn, New York, is a waterway that flows from the north end of Owasco Lake through five counties before connecting to the Seneca River. Over time, portions of the Owasco Outlet were contaminated with coal tar. A byproduct of burning coal, the coal tar had been buried throughout the grounds of a former manufactured gas plant located along the waterway during the 1800s, eventually leaching into the surrounding sediment.

  • Activated Carbon And Adsorption Of Trichloroethylene (TCE) And Tetrachloroethylene (PCE)

    Trichloroethylene (TCE) and Tetrachloroethylene (PCE) are two of the most common solvents that contaminate groundwater supplies in the United States. Both solvents see frequent use in the extraction of fat, in the textile industry, in the production of various pharmaceutical and chemical products. TCE is also used as a degreaser from fabricated metal parts, and PCE serves as a component of aerosol dry-cleaning solvents.

  • Arkal Super Galaxy Self-Cleaning Disc Filter

    The Arkal Super Galaxy is a high-flow rate, self-cleaning, automatic disc filter. It is practical for water and wastewater treatment plants, central water systems for irrigation, large cooling tower power plants, ballast water, and saltwater, as it handles desalination. In addition, it controls algae and reduces hydraulic filtration degrees to less than 20 microns. Its vertical and horizontal installation options accommodate all space issues.
