  • 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.

  • Multi-Point Chlorination Process To Treat Raw Water Yields To A Multi-Barrier Chain Of Treatment Technologies
    Multi-Point Chlorination Process To Treat Raw Water Yields To A Multi-Barrier Chain Of Treatment Technologies

    For decades, a Winnipeg utility used a multiple point-chlorination process to treat raw water drawn from remote Shoal Lake. Concerns eventually arose about the potential presence of chlorine-resistant pathogens–Crytosporidium and Giardia–and residual disinfection byproducts, which coincided with encroaching development near the lake. The Clari-DAF system was selected and now removes 70 percent of the organics at the Winnipeg plant, which also improves filtration and extends the intervals between filter backwashes.

    How To Select The Right Activated Carbon For PFAS Removal

    No water contamination issue is grabbing more headlines these days than that of perfluorinated chemicals, commonly referred to as PFCs or PFAS. Concerns over the chemicals have sprung up all over the country, prompted by contamination from industrial wastewater and military firefighting foam. Regardless of where the issue has come up or what caused it, everyone who has been affected wants the same thing: an effective treatment solution. To discuss such a solution, Water Online spoke with Calgon Carbon Corporation.

    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.

    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.

  • 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.

    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.
