WASTEWATER CONTAMINANT REMOVAL RESOURCES

  • The Tri-Lakes Wastewater Treatment Facility located in Monument, CO, receives flow from the Woodmoor, Palmer Lake, and Monument Sanitation Districts. The plant discharges treated effluent to Monument Creek, which is within the Fountain Creek Water Shed. Originally, the Tri-Lakes facility consisted of a three-cell lagoon. This was replaced by a two-basin Biolac Wave-Ox system, which was installed in 1990 and later upgraded in 1998 to a three-basin system with a capacity of 4.2 MGD.

  • Sought after in a variety of market sectors for their performance and utility, industrial vacuum evaporation systems are in the midst of a surge. For the unacquainted, this primer explains the reasons why.

  • With any new and upcoming industry, regulations surrounding product development, market research, and potential regulatory impacts must be evaluated. But what happens when that new industry involves a product that is illegal to produce on a federal level, but legal on a state level? This unusual circumstance dictates a more expansive set of considerations and potential issues for all stakeholders involved.

  • Municipal Wastewater Treatment is the process of ejecting the harmful pollutants from wastewater. The main source of pollutants is the domestic use. The pollutants are treated by various methods like Physical, Chemical, and Biological process. The practice of municipal wastewater treatment is best encouraged these days. This treated resource is best for utilizing in raising the crops.

  • In many water and wastewater treatment applications, there are a number of pollutants that are difficult to reduce by physical, chemical, or biological means alone. In more recent years, there has been a growing concern regarding pharmaceutical drugs in drinking water and aquatic environments. Pesticides get caught in runoff from farms into freshwater supplies. Personal care products are typically washed down the drain into whatever system they are linked to. Landfill leachate is a toxic cocktail of compounds that can leak into groundwater sources. Such contaminants fall into the category of micropollutants, because they are so small. Their size alone is part of the reason, they are so difficult to remove from water and wastewater by certain means. More efficient removal requires a more powerful oxidation process, this process is called an advanced oxidation process (AOP).

  • 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.

  • With a global population of over seven billion people, there are hundreds, if not thousands, of companies in the world that produce the food and beverages that are needed to meet this global demand. These companies require massive amounts of water to produce their products, and those products result in equal amounts of wastewater. It’s simple enough to just discharge the wastewater into a nearby stream or surface water source and be finished with it. However, with constantly changing environmental regulations and pressure to be more environmentally conscious, food and beverage companies face increasing requirements of beverage and food wastewater treatment.

  • Officials at the Jefferson Parish Sewerage Department approached the team at Digital Engineering to find a long-term solution for the odor and corrosion issues throughout the East Bank Wastewater Treatment Plant. The consultants at Digital Engineering, headquartered in Kenner, La., began researching methods to reduce odor and corrosive compounds flowing into the plant while also protecting the parish’s infrastructure from the harmful effects of hydrogen sulfide (H2S). Because expensive chemicals fail to prevent the occurrence of H2S, plant consultants opted to use oxygen to minimize corrosion while reducing chemical costs.

  • Plant officials at a 12 MGD wastewater plant in Arkansas began evaluating disinfection alternatives to upgrade their current system as well as address the removal of contaminants of emerging concern (CEC). The facility, which included primary clarification, activated sludge, secondary clarification and sand filtration, elected to use dissolved ozone to replace its current ultraviolet (UV) system. After researching different ozone systems, plant officials chose to install BlueInGreen’s HyDOZ® technology in order to more efficiently meet current permit requirements, as well as prepare for future legislation.

  • The wastewater pre-treatment plant processes effluent from the manufacturing facility prior to discharging into the sanitary sewer system for treatment at the municipal wastewater facility. Use of sulphuric acid to manage the pH of the wastewater in the buffering reactor tank prior to entering the DAF for solids and oil removal was considered to be an unnecessary risk requiring significant safety protocols.
