WATER REUSE RESOURCES

  • Wastewater refers to any liquid waste or sewage from homes, hospitals, factories, and any other building that uses water in its facilities. From flushing the toilet to the vast amount of wastewater that flows out of industrial plants, we all contribute to it. Unless sewage is adequately treated, it can harm public health and the environment.

  • A One Water master plan under development for the city of Winter Haven, Florida, serves as an example to other communities looking at the future through a One Water lens.

  • California has seen so much rain over the past few weeks that farm fields are inundated and normally dry creeks and drainage ditches have become torrents of water racing toward the ocean. Yet, most of the state remains in severe drought. All that runoff in the middle of a drought begs the question — why can’t more rainwater be collected and stored for the long, dry spring and summer when it’s needed?

  • I had the privilege of presenting at the Irrigation Association (IA) Show recently in Las Vegas on how smart irrigation leads to more efficient carbon capture. The topic is as timely as it gets — both water efficiency and carbon sequestration are high-visibility issues right now around the world — and the audience represented many of the top minds in irrigation and agriculture.

  • Several large municipal water providers commit to significant reductions in water use.

  • Learn how wastewater treatment plants using UV technology can capitalize on retrofit options and what they can expect from them. 

  • "Why isn't water free?" Not surprisingly, that's a common query on Google — common enough that there are some outstanding responses right at the top of the screen when you type it in. After all, water is everywhere. And because it's vital to survival, we see it as a human right, linked to a moral imperative different from any other commodity. Of course, there are significant costs tied with pumping, conveying, metering and, perhaps most importantly, purifying the water we pay for. So, although we tend to undervalue water compared to its importance, we do have to pay something for it. Or, as my friend Steve Bhaerman likes to say, "water is a we-source, not a free-source."

  • Onsite and localized reuse expand the practice overall, which will be essential for long-term security.

  • Despite circular economy and “one water” ambitions, progress remains slow and the uptake of circular solutions blocked by human nature’s aversion to risks, say Marc Perlman and Ofer Avidan. They argue why solid business models are needed to accelerate the circular economy revolution.

  • All across America, water scarcity is changing the way we live, and the housing industry is no exception. According to PNAS.org, an estimated 471,000 households or 1.1 million individuals lack a piped water connection. With 73% of homes located in urban areas, the overwhelming pressure of underfunded water infrastructure is causing a great migration from big cities to suburbs.

WATER REUSE SOLUTIONS

  • TrojanUVFlexAOP – Advanced Oxidation System

    Meeting the demand for clean water has never been more challenging. Communities around the world are facing a growing water stress – an insufficient supply, in terms of water quality or water quantity – and often both. Many are turning to potable reuse and drinking water remediation to meet these demands. The TrojanUVFlex®AOP can be part of the solution. This UV advanced oxidation system destroys a range of chemical contaminants while simultaneously providing final treatment, helping municipalities relying on lower quality water sources to continue producing high-quality potable drinking water.

  • Convertible Potable Water Treatment System: PWT-12/50

    For remote sites of 35 to 200 people, the newterra PWT-12/50 offers optimal flexibility – adapting to changing camp populations quickly and easily. The base 40' unit is a fully self-contained potable water treatment plant with capacity for up to 50 people.

  • Potable Water Treatment Large Train System: PWT 500

    For large camps with populations expected to exceed 2,000 people, newterra’s modular PWT-500 Potable Water Treatment Large Train System employs 40' containers dedicated to a specific, complimentary treatment process (e.g. greensand filtration, nanofiltration, etc.)

  • Aqua ElectrOzone Ozone Generation System

    Ozone treatment for water and wastewater has been utilized successfully for several decades and continues to be a viable disinfection solution for both municipal and industrial plants, worldwide.

  • NeoTech D222™

    The NeoTech D222™ is specially designed to disinfect water and is an essential component in advanced oxidation processes.
