A common challenge for wastewater treatment facilities is the ability to be fully productive, while also combating odor concerns and issues. But as with many facilities across the U.S., regional housing and commercial development have increased, causing many plants to operate more harmoniously with neighboring businesses.
The Huber Technology Strainpress has helped Napa Sanitation District maximize its investment in the FOG receiving and injection system by improving operations, ensuring the protection of downstream components and enhancing the production of a valuable, revenue generating asset.
Frito-Lay, an affiliate of PepsiCo Foods, reinforced its leader position in environmental awareness, achieving an average of 30% energy efficiency and lower noise levels by choosing Atlas Copco screw blower technology for its water treatment facility.
In August of 2007, the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality issued seasonal ammonia discharge limits for the Coldwater Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP), which included a daily maximum ammonia concentration of 2.0 mg/L between the months of May and November.
The RPPS Star Technology fulfills an important role in protecting the membrane bioreactor by eliminating as much solid screening as possible. The unit is dependable beyond expectation and performs extremely well.
The Rahway Valley Sewerage Authority (RVSA), which operates a large wastewater treatment plant in New Jersey, embarked on a green co-generation waste-to-energy project to power a portion of its operations. The plant’s management team became interested in pursuing the gas-to-energy power co-generation system for both environmental and cost reasons.
‘Sonicating’ sludge proves to be a sound method for handling biosolids. By Bryen Woo, aerobic digestion product manager and James Goldhardt, anaerobic digestion group manager, Ovivo
Contact ultrasonic level switch technology was first applied to process control in the 1960s – and continues to provide accurate and reliable liquid level measurement in virtually every process industry today.
The Region of Peel is the second-largest Canadian municipality after the city of Toronto, and draws its drinking water from Lake Ontario — the smallest of the five Great Lakes. To meet the projected population increase from 1,160,000 people currently to an estimated 1,571,000 people in 2031, the Region decided to upgrade and expand its water treatment plant. To deal with seasonal taste and odor compounds produced by algae blooms in Lake Ontario, the membrane plant will be equipped with a Trojan UV-Oxidation system.

As a result of clean energy mandates and the rising cost of energy, wastewater treatment facilities around the country are retrofitting their instrumentation to run highly efficient, cost-effective, clean facilities. To reduce emissions and produce clean energy, solid wastes are often digested in large digester tanks to reduce the volume of waste (sludge) and produce more biogas, which is then used as fuel in the cogeneration process. However, a clean environment calls for not just clean air and clean energy, but clean water as well.
A North Carolina-based specialty chemical manufacturer, a major producer of insect repellent, was looking for a better way to measure the liquid level in its glass-lined agitated reactor. The company uses a number of complex technologies to manufacture sebacates, adipates, isophthalates, catalysts, alkyds, and other natural and renewable chemistries based on castor and citrates.
A new pipe-repair solution promises to save time and money, while also being sustainable, long-lasting, fully scalable, and safe for workers.
Radar technology is often viewed as the “best” method of level measurement, but this isn’t necessarily true in the water industry.
Water professionals are tasked with protecting the public health every minute of every day. They must ensure the removal of contaminants and pathogens from the public water supply. To do so, they employ a variety of treatment methods.
The science behind grit removal is an all-important but underserved aspect of wastewater treatment operations — until now.
With a plethora of contaminants deriving from a multitude of sources and a variety of treatment solutions to choose from, the topic of industrial wastewater can get complex fast. This overview provides clarity.
An ambitious, globe-trotting program invites attendees to learn from the infrastructure accomplishments and challenges of the world’s premier riverfront cities. With water becoming an increasingly valuable resource and the world’s drinking and wastewater infrastructure in peril, what can these metropolises teach us?
The path to on-site non-potable water reuse has been beset by roadblocks, but a new initiative is removing them to clear the way for more efficient water management.
The journey to “smart” has proven more challenging for wastewater networks than for potable water, but real-world impact is imminent. Learn what potential awaits the industry at monitoring’s latest frontier.
