WASTEWATER TREATMENT RESOURCES
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.
Mixing Made Easy For Low Energy Lakes, Ponds, And Lagoons
Landlocked, shallow bodies of water such as recreational ponds, irrigation, drinking water and animal waste lagoons have a major problem with flow. The only natural methods of movement in these bodies of water are the slight Coriolis Effect of the earth and wind. Neither of these natural mixing sources is sufficient to allow shallow water bodies to respire and deal with the natural biological degradation of wastes and detritus that eventually form on the bottom. Eventually, external problems will occur – algae begins to form in abundance, odors will emanate from the water due to stagnation, blue-green cyanobacteria will form on the surface and cause more odor and toxicity, and eventually the water is no longer capable of supporting basic aquatic fauna reproduction.
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?
EPA’s SARS-CoV-2 Research: Assessing Virus Levels In Sewage For Community Level Screening
EPA researchers are developing and applying methods for detecting different forms of the virus, including live, or infectious, virus and the genetic marker of the virus, its RNA, in wastewater. Standard, reproducible methods of detection are critical to accurately inform public health decisions. This research will focus on developing the best method for detection.
Water Reuse As An Emerging Solution
Our world's resources are far from infinite. Water often seems to be abundant, but humanity is putting a great deal of strain on the available surface and groundwater water supplies. Our failure to conserve our water supply is causing droughts, dust storms, and other environmental problems that hurt both humanity and nature. The only way to minimize the situation from turning into a disaster is to start conserving and recycling water.
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?
Supporting Innovations To Reduce Nitrogen Pollution From Septic Systems
Septic systems are common in coastal marine communities on the East Coast of the United States. Septic systems consist of subsurface wastewater treatment structure and use a combination of natural processes and technology to treat residential sanitary waste and greywater from bathrooms, kitchen drains, and laundry. Partially cleaned wastewater is discharged from septic tanks into drain fields, where the water is further treated through biological processes as it travels through gravel, soil, and can eventually reach groundwater. Groundwater linkages with surface waters can then transport any nutrients and contaminants that are present in discharge directly into coastal waters.
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.
Leveraging Rental For Pneumatic Conveying Applications
Pneumatic conveying applications are critical to many facilities – when you can’t move material you can’t make or sell your product. Because of a historical lack of availability of specialized rental blowers and compressors for pneumatic conveying, plants often ether accepted the production outage or rented a more readily available 2 stage oil-free rotary screw compressor designed for 90-150 PSIG plant air service that is very inefficient at the reduced pressures needed for pneumatic conveying.
Mobile Home Park Installs Modular MBR System To Save Valuable Space
Bay Meadows is a year-round RV and mobile home park located along the shores of Lake Ontario. The facility had been reliant on subsurface treatment, however current regulatory requirements eliminated the option of continuing with that approach. In addition to high bedrock, the lack of available area due to design flow values meant a more sophisticated sewage treatment solution would be necessary.
