Supporting Innovations To Reduce Nitrogen Pollution From Septic Systems
Septic systems are common in coastal marine communities on the East Coast of the United States. Septic systems consist of subsurface wastewater treatment structure and use a combination of natural processes and technology to treat residential sanitary waste and greywater from bathrooms, kitchen drains, and laundry. Partially cleaned wastewater is discharged from septic tanks into drain fields, where the water is further treated through biological processes as it travels through gravel, soil, and can eventually reach groundwater. Groundwater linkages with surface waters can then transport any nutrients and contaminants that are present in discharge directly into coastal waters.
AFFF Contamination — A Precursor To Long-Term Environmental Hazards
Although aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF) has been used to save lives, it may be impairing the health of many more. The persistent and pervasive nature of PFAS is again the culprit.
Reducing Water Waste And Increasing Reuse With Remote Monitoring And Control
Now more than ever, it’s time to explore circular water management solutions to prevent loss of the world’s most valuable resource.
A Market-Based Tool For Groundwater Conservation
Ventura County, California, is an agricultural powerhouse. In 2017, its revenues from agriculture were an estimated $2.1 billion. It also faces extraordinary population pressure, with nearly 450 people per square mile — about five times the average population density of the United States. Both agriculture and infrastructure are dependent on, and impacted by, the availability of water — which has itself been impacted by California’s rapidly-diminishing groundwater reserves.
Colorado Community Solves Augmentation Dilemma
The City of Brighton, CO, is one of Denver’s most popular suburbs. The community’s population has nearly doubled since 2000 and is expected to surpass 41,000 in 2020. And like many communities in Colorado, Brighton has a significant issue with water management.
Uniting To Combat Water Shortages Across The Country
A clean and reliable water supply is critical to our nation’s future, but freshwater is a finite resource.
Cyanotoxins Treatment Strategies For Water Utilities
The last couple of years, many newspaper headlines were reporting animal poisonings and deaths, particularly concerning seizure in dogs following drinking from, or just swimming in, water sources contaminated with cyanobacterial blooms. Epidemiological evidence has proven the issue does not limit only to animals, as symptoms of poisoning were detected in humans following consumption of drinking water containing cyanotoxins (cyanobacterial toxins).
Water Scarcity: The Blemish On 21st Century And Pathways To A Sustainable Future
The problem of water scarcity is not breaking news. In fact, if we believe the current UN reports, by the end of 2050 more than 5 billion people could be affected by water shortages.
Grundfos Solutions For Industrial Water Reuse
Water is such a fundamental necessity for life that it is often taken for granted. In modern industrial societies, the water from every tap is expected to be so pure that we can drink it without a second thought. However, the reality is much more complicated. Mankind is becoming increasingly aware that fresh water is a rarity, and the process of water treatment is vitally importance to us all. This white paper is intended to introduce the reader to the many elements that constitute the water reuse process.
Custom Solutions For Reuse Applications
As supplies of fresh water become increasingly scarce, methods of recycling and reusing this vital resource are getting more attention than ever before. Orenco’s AdvanTex® Treatment Systems consistently produce clear effluent that meets the most stringent permit limits. This effluent is suitable for a variety of reuse applications (governed by local regulations) including irrigation, toilet flushing, industrial cooling, and car washing. With a 15-year track record, the AdvanTex textile filter is a proven technology that not only treats greywater to reuse levels, but is also ideal for treating residential or commercial wastewater.
