WASTEWATER CONTAMINANT REMOVAL RESOURCES
Resilience In The Face Of Emerging Contaminants
There are over 150,000 public drinking water systems in the United States and more than 80 percent of the population receives their potable drinking water from these systems. And today - according to the EPA, our water systems are faced with a growing list of challenges.
Tanks Evolve To Meet Wastewater Treatment, Water Reuse Demand
From simple to advanced and from sewage to potable, tanks have become the Swiss Army knives of water management.
Optimal Ultrafiltration Uses For Beverage And Dairy Companies
When you’re sipping on a cold soda or snacking on a creamy piece of cheese, you probably don’t really think about what went into making your food or beverage. Aside from the automated production-line machines, one of the most important things that goes into the making of any soda, juice, wheel of cheese, or gallon of milk is water. Producing beverages and dairy products uses substantial amounts of water within production processes.
Scientists Around The World Are Already Fighting The Next Pandemic
If a two-year-old child living in poverty in India or Bangladesh gets sick with a common bacterial infection, there is more than a 50 percent chance an antibiotic treatment will fail. Somehow the child has acquired an antibiotic resistant infection — even to drugs to which they may never have been exposed. How?
Oily Water Treatment: How To Treat Using Advanced Electrocoagulation
We cook with it. Use it on our skin. Paint with it. Use it to fuel our cars. Our own bodies even produce it. However, something doesn’t quite add up here. Clearly, you wouldn’t cook with motor oil and you wouldn’t put olive oil in your gas tank. So why do we call these different products by the same general name? What oily water treatment is used to treat these different types of emulsified oils?
Peak Wet Weather Flow Management — A Slow And Painful Process
The water and wastewater industry is not like most businesses. Our industry is driven by many factors, including environmentalist concerns, federal and state regulatory water quality requirements, and utilities being good stewards of our waterways and providing clean water for drinking and recreational use. We have accomplished a lot of great work to clean up our waterways and provide safe water since the Clean Water Act (CWA) was first passed.
Decentralized Wastewater Treatment Approaches Solve Community Challenges
Decentralized systems are proving their value beyond traditional use in rural settings, treating larger volumes of wastewater in diverse applications while easing O&M concerns.
Common UV Lamps For Chemical-Free Disinfection
When it comes to water and wastewater treatment systems, operational and performance variation will come from different components, including what treatment processes are deployed, whether chemicals are utilized, or how much power the treatment processes require. With many treatment systems, there is much consideration given to a particular central component akin to the heart and soul of the process. In the case of a UV system, the ultraviolet (UV) lamps are this component.
Refinery Treats Groundwater Contamination While Saving Precious Facility Space
A large, Midwestern oil refinery installed two identical, 110’ diameter S&L Model R OXIGEST® treatment systems to solve a groundwater treatment problem on-site. Each plant incorporates aeration, clarification, and effluent holding, treating peak flows of 7.2 MGD combined; 4.3 MGD in each plant.
Pros And Cons Of Wastewater Treatment Methods: Coagulation And Disinfection
Every stage in a wastewater treatment process is important to achieve the desired treatment results. However, primary treatment and tertiary are critical to the overall process. In the primary treatment process, solids are reduced to a large extent. Without this step, subsequent treatment would be less effective. In tertiary treatment, harmful microbiological matter is rendered killed or inactive so that it will not cause sickness to those organisms that encounter it.
