Innovative Project In Virginia Changes Lens On Wastewater
Innovative Project In Virginia Changes Lens On Wastewater

In September of 2016, Ted Henifin took the first sip of water purified at a pilot treatment plant developed by HRSD (Hampton Roads Sanitation District). Now, the innovative water treatment program known as SWIFT — Sustainable Water Initiative for Tomorrow — is changing the lens through which communities and government officials view wastewater, drinking water, aquifer replenishment, and even fighting sea level rise.

  • Australian Cities Adopt Wastewater Reuse
    Australian Cities Adopt Wastewater Reuse

    Potable reuse of wastewater has gone by many different names, some of them unflattering, like “toilet to tap.” Despite the clear benefits of water reuse, this so-called “ick factor” has slowed the adoption of technology that can transform wastewater into drinking water.

  • Water Quality Testing: Solutions From Catchment To Waste
    Water Quality Testing: Solutions From Catchment To Waste

    Globally, over 80% of the wastewater generated by society flows back into the environment without being treated or reused. Clean water is an essential part of daily life, from catchment all the way through to wastewater treatment, therefore analysis throughout the whole cycle is crucial. Whether in lakes, pipes, or bottles, we can accompany you with our range of instruments, test kits and applications for your water and wastewater needs.

  • What Is The Connection Between Reclaimed Water, Agriculture, And Filtration?
    What Is The Connection Between Reclaimed Water, Agriculture, And Filtration?

    The case for using reclaimed water is strong. Water has become an increasingly valuable (and often rare) resource, and every drop counts. As potable water sources become harder to find and access, people are moving to alternative sources such as non-potable fresh water, brackish sources, or reclaiming treated effluent rather than disposing of it.

  • Cooling Tower Blowdown Wastewater Treatment For Reuse
    Cooling Tower Blowdown Wastewater Treatment For Reuse

    Megalim Solar Power Ltd’s Power Station, located in Israel’s northern Negev desert, will be the first utility-scale solar thermal or concentrated solar power (CSP) plant in operation in Israel when completed. To minimize fresh water usage in the cooling cycle and boiler makeup of the power plant, Fluence designed and supplied a containerized system for treatment of cooling tower blowdown wastewater for reuse and the production of ultrapure water (UPW).

    Effective AdvanTex Treatment Offers Cost Savings

    On the small island of St. Thomas, the Mountain Top condominium complex had a big problem: its sequencing batch reactor (SBR) was failing. And a replacement treatment system was needed quickly, because residents relied on the recycled wastewater for use both in toilet flushing and landscape irrigation.

    The phrase “Necessity is the mother of invention” has been definitively traced back to early 16th century England, and even attributed to Plato in the Latin form, “Mater artium necessitas.” In today’s world of water, necessity is also becoming a major factor in rising interest regarding potable water reuse. This is especially true in areas where changes in climate or usage demands have stressed traditional sources of supply, as evidenced by increasing numbers of applications worldwide. For those who work in a water-stressed environment, this article can provide added perspective on specific points of opportunity — and points of caution.
