WASTEWATER ANALYSIS RESOURCES
How To Achieve Your Wastewater Treatment Goals With ATP Testing
Of all the questions that I’ve been asked when speaking with prospective clients in wastewater treatment, the one that I can count on is:
Save Valuable Time With Automated Microbial Testing
Water treatment operators balance their time between a wide range of responsibilities. On any given day they could be preparing chemicals, performing maintenance and miscellaneous repairs, reviewing data, collecting samples, and running a variety of tests. In balancing these competing demands, some important duties might not get the time required to truly maximize benefits.
Wastewater Lab Selection And Sampling Best Practices
Sending samples out still requires a level of responsibility and competency. Follow these steps to ensure accurate water quality analysis.
COVID-19 Clues In A Community's Sewage: 4 Questions Answered About Watching Wastewater For Coronavirus
Researchers around the world are testing wastewater for the SARS-CoV-2 virus, in hopes that what goes down the drain can act as an early warning system for COVID-19 infections in communities.
EPA’s SARS-CoV-2 Research: Assessing Virus Levels In Sewage For Community Level Screening
EPA researchers are developing and applying methods for detecting different forms of the virus, including live, or infectious, virus and the genetic marker of the virus, its RNA, in wastewater. Standard, reproducible methods of detection are critical to accurately inform public health decisions. This research will focus on developing the best method for detection.
Microbiological Monitoring Of Paints Using 2nd Generation ATP
A paint manufacturer produces a wide range of paint products for industrial, commercial, and residential applications. The products are manufactured in large batches of up to 10 tons. Before each batch is packaged and shipped, a number of tests are performed to ensure that the product meets strict quality control requirements.
Using ATP To Reduce Risks From Legionella In Cooling Towers
A semiconductor manufacturing facility in France relies on an extensive cooling system to maintain stable conditions throughout their production facilities. The cooling system includes 19 cooling towers and 14 cooling water networks spread over a 135-acre site.
Moneyball For Water And Wastewater Treatment
The movie and sports term has infiltrated the business world and has important implications for the water/wastewater industry.
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.
Calibrating Success: Improved Tools To Maintain Flowmeter Accuracy
Water utilities with highly successful monitoring programs tend to share a common trait: they have a well-defined plan for calibration that emphasizes frequency and tracking. However, when done properly, this process is time-consuming and often leads to unnecessary labor and downtime. The good news is that advanced metering technology is available for plants to get a better handle on the instrument’s performance with significantly less effort.
