WASTEWATER CONTAMINANT REMOVAL RESOURCES

  • Sometimes conventional wastewater treatment solutions won’t work for a given application, and sometimes a nonconventional approach is simply the better choice for high-quality, cost-effective performance.

  • We all love it when a plan comes together. In July 1952 in Arkansas, when President Harry S. Truman dedicated the Bull Shoals dam on the White River, which created Bull Shoals Lake, it, as planned, brought about a boom in tourism — and how.

  • The Riviera Utilities Wastewater Treatment Plant at Wolf Creek serves its community of approximately 20,000 residents and had been operating a biological treatment system consisting of a 35-year-old extended aeration oxidation ditch process. The plant was rated for 2.0 MGD and needed to expand capacity to 3.5 MGD due to growing demand. Instead of taking the traditional approach of adding an additional oxidation ditch to increase treatment capacity, Riviera Utilities had the desire to “future-proof” the plant and prepare to meet more stringent effluent requirements, including Biological Nutrient Removal (BNR) that were anticipated to be enacted in the future.

  • The City of Belleville, Ontario was planning on re-developing downtown waterfront property into a public space containing a park and a green space. Unfortunately, the proposed site had a long history as an industrial site – initially for a coal gasification plant from 1854 to 1947 and then as a bulk oil storage facility from 1930 to 1990.

  • 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.

  • Schreiber Grit & Grease

    Schreiber's Grit & Grease removal system is  unique system designed to remove both grit and grease in a common structure. The rectangular design provides efficient removal over a wide range of flows. The deeper chamber is for the settling of grit and in the other chamber grease floats to the surface for removal. The operation is automated with a PLC control for maximum operating efficiency.
