    Engineered Solution For Bromate Production During Ozonation

    The design of a utility’s ozone disinfection system often includes a method to minimize the production of regulated oxidation by-products that may form when ozone contacts the water. In regions where water contains a significant concentration of bromide ion (Br¯ ), ozone disinfection systems often minimize bromate (BrO3¯ ) formation by modifying the water chemistry through the addition of chloramines, acid, or other chemical additives.

  • Water Vs. Climate Change
    Water Vs. Climate Change

    Recently, the United Nations held a conference in Morocco related to climate change issues. The location of the conference had significant meaning because Africa has become a bellwether for the rest of the world when it comes to climate change. Desertification and rising sea levels both impact countries all over that continent.

Ultraviolet Disinfection ETS-UV™ Systems Ultraviolet Disinfection ETS-UV™ Systems

Ultraviolet (UV) irradiation is used for multifunctional purposes.  UV is most commonly used as an environmentally friendly alternative to chemical disinfection. It’s one of the most effective methods for inactivating harmful pathogens such as Listeria, E.coli, Giardia and chlorine tolerant pathogens like Cryptosporidium.  UV is also used for removal of organic and inorganic contaminants, including chlorine, ozone and Total Organic Carbon (TOC).  UV used in conjunction with an Advanced Oxidation Process (AOP) will remove Compounds of Emerging Concerns (CEC's), Synthetic Organics (SO's), Endocrine Disruptor Compounds (EDC's) and Personal and Pharmaceutical Care Products (PPCP's), as well as various taste and odor compounds from water.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 5 Burning Questions On Uranium And Radium Removal
    5 Burning Questions On Uranium And Radium Removal

    High levels of radionuclides (uranium/radium/etc.) in drinking water aren’t very common, but they are very dangerous. If you’ve long dealt with radionuclides, you’re familiar with the treatment requirements — but are you treating as cost effectively as possible?

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Why California's Cannabis Industry Will Lead Water Innovation

    For years, I’ve been standing on my deck in San Francisco, looking south to Silicon Valley for innovation in water efficiency. But I’m starting to realize that I might have been gazing in the wrong direction. Maybe I need to turn around and look north, over the spires of the Golden Gate Bridge, toward the Emerald Triangle in Humboldt, Mendocino and Trinity counties, the hotbed of California’s newly legalized commercial cannabis production.

  • How To Ensure Your Utility Complies With The LT2
    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?

  • ORP Sensors – Are They Really The Best Thing “Since Sliced Bread”?
    ORP Sensors – Are They Really The Best Thing “Since Sliced Bread”?

    There have been many publications lately that claim universal appeal of the ORP sensors and their applicability across the board. This concerns me, because the authors sometimes forget to mention some well-known practical limitations of the method, let alone the realities of water treatment applications potentially influencing the sensor performance.
