  • Aeration System Prevents Septic Conditions
    Aeration System Prevents Septic Conditions

    Circa 2010, Carollo Engineering designed and implemented expansions at wastewater treatment plants in Delano, California and Reedley, California to handle increased flows of up to 8.8 MGD and 5.0 MGD respectively. The proposals for both facilities specified a need for storage and processing of secondary sludge produced by the processes’ secondary clarifiers. Mazzei Injectors were selected to provide an efficient, zero maintenance method of freshening and mixing the sludge. Read the full case study to learn more.

Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF)

Headworks has designed and manufactured DAFs (Dissolved Air Flotation) for many years for the cruise ship industry where the primary goal is always to operate on a small footprint.  As cruise ships can’t simply call a plumber when there is a problem, reliability of the equipment is paramount as well. It was, therefore, only a natural progression for us to expand the line into land based applications. In combination with our MBBR/IFAS solutions Headworks’ DAFs provide a super compact complete core treatment system.

    Pulling Together: Public-Private Partnerships Poised To Push California Water Efficiency

    California is home to some of the world’s most creative minds, top universities, productive farmland, groundbreaking industries — and one of the most epic droughts. The state has endured five years of drained reservoirs and groundwater reserves tapped so aggressively that the land subsidence caused by pumping has been literally seen from space. This indicates in no uncertain terms that it’s time to get all hands on deck. Private companies, universities, irrigation and drainage districts, municipalities — it’s time to pull together into public-private partnerships to address water challenges that face California and so many other regions of the world.

    Municipal Water District Goes All-In With Ignition

    For a 24-hour-a-day, seven-day-a-week water and waste water management operation, having a supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system is a must. A SCADA system should make workers’ jobs easier, but if it’s not working properly, or it’s unable to keep up as the enterprise expands and upgrades its processes, it becomes a hassle to deal with.

    New York City treats 1.3 billion gallons of wastewater a day across its 14 wastewater treatment plants. The city has seen a precipitous drop in fecal coliforms, with the NYC Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) reporting that fecal coliforms per 100 mL of water has fallen from 1,000 in 1972 when the Clean Water Act was passed to closer to 10 as of 2009.
