  • The True Cost Of Custody Transfer Mismeasurement
    The True Cost Of Custody Transfer Mismeasurement

    In the oil and gas industry, operations are only as good as what they can measure. When it’s time to move product from one place to another, accurate custody transfer measurement is paramount. Without a precise account of what’s been delivered, operations cannot accurately charge for their services and this can have major financial implications.

  • Why California's Cannabis Industry Will Lead Water Innovation
    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.

  • Top Monitoring Tools For Membrane Bioreactors
    Top Monitoring Tools For Membrane Bioreactors

    With increasing pressure on water resources, efficient and reliable wastewater treatment systems are crucial. Plants are searching for solutions that offer a smaller footprint and higher quality effluent. Over the last 15 years, membrane bioreactors (MBRs) have become increasingly common in both municipal and industrial wastewater treatment plants and help mitigate against effluent suspended solid issues. These systems combine a membrane filter with an activated sludge process where microorganisms are able to thrive and break down contaminants.

  • 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.

    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.
