Winning Strategies For Smart Cities, Smart Water, And Water Reuse

Every city facing infrastructure or operational challenges or concerns about maintaining quality of life in the face of population growth or a changing environment has benefits to gain from a unified smart-city approach. Here are some concepts for promoting understanding and acceptance among utility and government decision-makers, plus several examples of benefits already being garnered by smart cities large and small.

  • FlexRake Bar Screens At 24+ Sites Around Houston Were Unaffected By Hurricane Harvey
    FlexRake Bar Screens At 24+ Sites Around Houston Were Unaffected By Hurricane Harvey

    Despite the destruction of Hurricane Harvey in August 2017, Duperon® wastewater screening systems in the cities of Cuero and Refugio, Texas – approximately 150 miles southwest of Houston – were virtually unaffected by the storm. Duperon’s FlexRake® bar screens, installed at both locations as well as dozens of other sites in and around Houston, remove objects like rags, paper, plastics, and metals to prevent damage and clogging of downstream treatment equipment. Both communities found essentially no damage to their wastewater screening equipment.

  • Evaluating Alternatives And Options
    Evaluating Alternatives And Options

    Residents of Christiansburg, Ohio, already knew they had a problem with their onsite wastewater systems. System failures and odors were common, particularly during or shortly after significant rainfall.

  • Successful Screening Pilot At A Major Waste-To-Energy Player
    Successful Screening Pilot At A Major Waste-To-Energy Player

    Parkson recently had a very successful pilot test at the facility of a bio-feedstock supplier of waste products turned into fuel. The Rotoshear® unit, equipped with a .060” wedgewire screen, successfully removes solids directly from Industrial Waste Hauling trucks to recover grease. Screening this material before it enters the receiving station allows the facility to focus on proper treatment of the industrial wastewater rather than the expensive downtime to drain and clean their receiving pond.

    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.

  • 15 Steps To Identifying Your Best WTP & WWTP Flow Metering Options

    There’s a lot to be said for the old adage, “Use the right tool for the job.” When it comes to flow meters for municipal or industrial water treatment plant (WTP) and wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) operations, however, the sheer number of choices can be overwhelming. That is where using a process of elimination to winnow out styles that don’t fit the performance criteria of an application can make it easier to compare the few remaining options. Here is a checklist of considerations to accelerate that process.

  • Technology Change Radically Improves Dewatering Results
    Technology Change Radically Improves Dewatering Results

    Huber Technology Q-Press® replaced a belt filter press at the Robinson WWTP. The retrofit enabled the plant operations staff to maximize technology to make tremendous improvements in their dewatering performance and sludge storage and distribution processes. The technology change resulted in radical improvements to operations and reductions in costs. Read more.

    Nearly 50% of electricity-related emissions from the global wastewater sector could be abated at negative cost by investing in readily available technologies.

  • How To Buy Right, Not Cheap When It Comes To Solids-Handling Pumps

    Companies using solids-handling pumps as part of their processes know that even though the pumps are typically moving trash and other waste products, the type of equipment used can be a huge business decision. Most applications warrant more attention than simply choosing the first pump that pops out of a catalogue. By The Gorman-Rupp Company

    When Progress Energy learned about the opportunity to install new, more efficient and easier-to-maintain pump technology for less than they could rebuild their current pumps, the decision was simple.

  • Wastewater Disinfection and Reuse - Lake Arrowhead, California (Case Study)
    Wastewater Disinfection and Reuse - Lake Arrowhead, California (Case Study)

    In 2000, the district’s average water demand was 2.3 million gallons per day (MGD) (363 m3/hr) and was estimated to grow over 20% by 2030. Unfortunately, there was not a sufficient or permanent reliable source of supply to meet future demands.

  • What Is The Importance Of Pretreatment For Industrial Reverse Osmosis Water Treatment?
    What Is The Importance Of Pretreatment For Industrial Reverse Osmosis Water Treatment?

    Your body is a machine. Like most machines, you have to properly maintain your body in order for it to function properly. Along with regular cleaning and checkups, you also have to be cognizant of what food you put into your body or else it won’t work at its maximum potential. An industrial reverse osmosis water treatment system actually works in quite a similar way.

    How To Use ATP And DNA In A Wastewater Nitrification Monitoring Plan

    Ammonia removal is a key metric for assessing wastewater treatment facility performance. This is because ammonia contributes to aquatic life toxicity. Furthermore, nitrogen, along with phosphorus, is a driver of receiving water eutrophication. Eutrophication, which simply is an over-enrichment of nutrients, can be detrimental to environmental and public health. It can result in harmful algae blooms, dissolved oxygen depletion, fish kills, and other damaging impacts.

    4 Benefits Of Utilizing Reverse Osmosis Wastewater Treatment For Reuse

    When a municipality or business wants to reuse their wastewater, some applications require more treatment than others due to the quality of the wastewater. Many standard wastewater treatment systems consist of pretreatment, primary treatment, and secondary treatment stages. By the end of the secondary stage, a majority of the pollutants, solids, organics, inorganics, and metals have been removed or reduced. This is where reverse osmosis wastewater treatment can be utilized in a third stage process.

    Analyzing Water Quality Parameters When Choosing AOP Systems For Water Treatment

    In water and wastewater treatment, chemistry is king. Treatment options are evaluated depending on the quality of water to be treated and the treatment application. Treatment systems including AOP systems, are designed to specifically target certain contaminants and remove or reduce them from the water. This takes places through the power of chemical reactions. Even biological treatments involve chemistry at their core.
