  • 6 Steps To Complying With New PFAS Drinking Water Regulations

    In April 2024, the U.S. EPA released regulations for PFAS limits in municipal drinking water, greatly impacting municipalities and the water industry as a whole. There are several steps that can be taken to successfully navigate the upcoming regulations.

  • Solutions In Bloom: How Flowers Are Being Used To Clean Up Polluted Waterways

    Pollution and microplastics float down waterways that treatment plants have to manage. Alongside these contaminants are drifting flowers that clear aquatic habitats. Recent research shows they could be an organic method for removing phosphorus and nitrogen.

  • Lead From Old Paint And Pipes Is Still A Harmful And Deadly Hazard In Millions Of U.S. Homes The WHO estimates that more than 1 million deaths each year are attributable to lead poisoning. In more recent years, this number has risen at an incredible pace, with some research showing that nearly 5.5 million adults die from lead-related health complications. Understanding and addressing this persistent problem will require improved monitoring, targeted remediation, and a great deal more awareness and dialogue.
  • Quick Solutions To PFAS In Drinking Water, Especially For Smaller Systems

    With funds falling short of costs for pending PFAS rules compliance, utilities require an economical treatment solution.

  • River Pollution Is Causing Harmful Outbreaks Of Sewage Fungus In The UK

    The pollution of the UK’s waterways and coastlines with sewage is throwing its ecosystems out of balance. One well documented example is the spread of microscopic bacteria that can multiply rapidly into algal blooms, causing extensive dead zones once oxygen in the water has been used up. But there’s another pollution problem that has been largely overlooked, until now.

  • Arsenic In Landfills Is Still Leaching Into Groundwater Arsenic has long been considered "the king of poisons." Films such as "Arsenic and Old Lace" by Frank Capra and "The Name of the Rose" by Jean-Jacques Annaud illustrate the deadly effect that a high dose has on people. But when someone experiences arsenic poisoning, it's usually not the direct result of a diabolical plot — in fact, it usually isn't. So how do you figure out how the arsenic got into someone's bloodstream?
  • Mussel Fouling Prevention At Shepaug Hydroelectric Station

    While the population of invasive mussels was very low along the Housatonic River in 2015, the population was expected to increase in the coming years. Firstlight Energy, a subsidiary of GDF Suez and operators of a number of hydroelectric facilities in Connecticut and Massachusetts, was concerned about the detrimental effect the anticipated increase would have on the cooling water systems of the Shepaug Hydroelectric Station.

  • Mussel Fouling Prevention At Parker Dam

    Atlantium's HOD UV system was chosen by the US Bureau of Reclamation to prevent mussel fouling in dams. The system adjusts UV dose rate based on water quality and has been installed in multiple locations.

  • Aquatic Invasive Species Control At Hoover Dam

    In this case study, learn why Hoover Dam installed Atlantium's HOD UV treatment system to protect its cooling water systems from Quagga mussels.

  • Agriculture And Pharma Key To Solving Micropollutants

    As the phrase "forever chemicals" enters the Oxford English Dictionary for the first time in 2024, and these fluorinated substances expand the list of micropollutants, it might be time for a change in the way these persistent environmental pollutants are tackled.
