WASTEWATER TREATMENT RESOURCES

  • In the spring of 2019, U.S. government-funded research on watersheds revealed a dire outlook for the future of water availability in the United States. Between population growth and climate change, the study reports that “serious water shortages'' are likely to occur within the next 55 years.

  • Effectively managing hundreds of thousands of miles of sewer network is not an enviable task. And with ever changing industry regulation, stricter statutory targets, additional compliance and a growing abundance of technology, that task could easily be regarded as insurmountable. How can you ever know exactly what’s going on throughout your entire network? It’s impossible. Or is it?

  • Raw sewage enters our rivers, lakes, and oceans at an alarming volume and frequency. This is a problem faced around the world. In some locations, great strides are being made to tackle this through infrastructure investment, often as a result of public and regulatory pressure, and because we all know that we need to do better.

  • Wastewater-based epidemiology (WBE) is the analysis of wastewater to identify the presence of biologicals or chemicals for the purpose of monitoring public health. It can provide a snapshot of entire communities from one sample. Detecting viral diseases by way of wastewater monitoring is nothing new, it’s been known for decades that viral particles can be detected in human feces. WBE has previously been used to detect the presence of pharmaceutical or industrial waste, drugs, viruses, and potential emergence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. In Israel, a wastewater surveillance program for monitoring polio outbreaks has been successfully running since 1989.

  • Last Dollar is a year-round residential community located just outside of Telluride, Colorado. The facility had been reliant on an aging treatment system that was failing quickly and needed immediate replacement to prevent operational fines. The current technology would not meet the new and more stringent effluent requirements in Colorado, so the project had to be completed quickly and within a tight budget. AquaWorks DBO provided the permitting and site engineering support to ensure the project was completed in 8 months from contract award to system operation.

  • Ross Valley Sanitary District in San Rafael, California services approximately 47,000 mostly residential customers over a 27 square mile service area. They have 5 major pump stations, which is where Ross Valley found themselves having the most trouble. The existing channel grinders were simply not reliable. “It was a constant headache,” said Philip Marcantonio, Senior Collection System Worker. “The pumps were ragging up sometimes twice a week and sometimes twice a day.” The plant reported that the machines were not efficient at all. “It was a lot of extra work on us to keep the stations going,” Marcantonio said. On top of that, the constant downtime was causing even more than extra work; it was costing the district a lot of money. They knew this was not a sustainable system to keep their plant and stations running.

  • Tyson Food's regional wastewater treatment plant was in need of replacements for their mechanical and jet aeration equipment for biological treatment and nutrient removal. BlueInGreen replaced two failed blowers with two SDOX® units without disrupting operations.

  • As much of the Western U.S. navigates a historic drought, community leaders and water utilities are exploring innovative options to expand their water resource portfolios. One approach that is gaining traction is potable water reuse, a treatment process for returning wastewater to high-quality drinking water.

  • When developing water or wastewater treatment processes for entirely new applications or modifying existing processes to accommodate changing water characteristics or regulatory discharge requirements, understanding capital investment, operating cost, and long-term performance is critical. Here are several ways to view pilot-plant or lab-scale testing as viable approaches to better outcomes with lower risks.

  • The DE NORA TETRA Modular DeepBed Filter (MDBF) Plant is an established tertiary wastewater filtration technology for the UK municipal water market to remove total suspended solids (TSS) before final effluent is discharged to a water course.

WASTEWATER TREATMENT SOLUTIONS

  • UniSystem® Package Wastewater Treatment Plant

    The standard UniSystem package plant is a rectangular tank consisting of an aeration chamber, hopper bottom clarifier, sludge holding tank, and chlorine disinfection chamber. Aeration Industries can supply painted carbon steel tankage or all of the internals and ancillary equipment for installation in concrete tanks. Treatment modules can be easily added to the design of the UniSystem depending on influent characteristics and effluent requirements. Treatment module options include a comminutor, flow equalization, denitrification equipment, filters, a membrane bioreactor, UV disinfection, post aeration, and phosphorus removal equipment.

  • Xylem Wastewater Network Optimization: A Smart, End-To-End Wastewater Platform

    Sewer overflows are a growing problem for cities around the world. With more severe rain events expected due to climate change, solving this critical water challenge is more important than ever. Doing so affordably is even harder. Xylem Wastewater Network Optimization is a real-time decision support system (RT-DSS) utilizing smart sewer technology that gives utilities a better view into the performance and capacity utilization of their existing sewer system assets. This allows utility leaders to optimize levels of service while saving money, reducing risk and protecting the environment.

  • Monster Stack™

    Debris in the waste stream varies throughout. The JWC Monster Stack customizes the cutters across the cutter stack to match the expected debris and environment.

  • Monster Metal

    Monster Metal is a trade secret alloy with the right balance of carbon for strength and chromium for corrosion resistance. The result is Monster Metal increases the usable life of your grinder cutters.

  • GWT Specialized Electrocoagulation System

    GWT electrocoagulation (EC) technology has become a valuable solution in the treatment of water and wastewater due to its ability to remove contaminants that are generally more difficult to remove by filtration or chemical treatment systems, such as emulsified oil, silica, total petroleum hydrocarbons, refractory organics, suspended solids, and heavy metals.

  • Clear3 Modular MBR.ST Series Sewage Treatment System

    The Clear3 is designed for a range of wastewater strengths and the ability to meet the most stringent discharge and reuse requirements.
