  • Denitrification Technology Significantly Improves Polluted Chesapeake Bay Watershed
    Denitrification Technology Significantly Improves Polluted Chesapeake Bay Watershed

    The 64,000 sq ft Chesapeake Bay Watershed includes parts of MD, VA, WV, PA, and NY. Of the 1,000s of WWTPs supporting nearly 18 million people in the watershed, 470 are designated by EPA as significant sources of nutrients and TSS. Algal blooms reduce DO levels in the water, killing plant and animal life –from marsh grasses to blue crabs to rockfish. Learn how De Nora TETRA™ Denite® technology is treating 450+ MGD in the Bay.

  • How Do We Get To 'Meaningful' Measurement?
    How Do We Get To 'Meaningful' Measurement?

    The question of how to get the most out of the data that we collect as an industry was central to the Sensing in Water Conference recently hosted by the Sensors for Water Interest Group (SWIG). The two-day conference highlighted several themes on how to get the best of the data that the Water Industry collects and how to make our measurements “meaningful.” Chief among those themes was greater collaboration among the different stakeholders, including water companies, universities, and the supply chain.

    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.
