  • Satellite Data Provides Fresh Insights Into The Amount Of Water In The Nile Basin

    Recent advances in hydrological satellite observations are enabling the frequent collection of much more reliable information. This has opened the door to new research efforts to update global water availability. Our study shows that there’s a looming water crisis in the Nile basin.

  • Municipality Looks To Expand Plant Capacity While Reusing Existing Systems

    Sharjah Municipality of the Untied Arab Emirates (U.A.E.) was requiring to treat more and more flow despite having very little space for new treatment systems. They were looking at wanting to expand their plants No. 4 & No. 5 plants to meet new total nitrogen limits and try to do so by having to reuse the existing systems. This type of upgrade would save on cost as well as space at the plant.

  • Water Stressed City Looks At Opportunities To Reuse And Recycle Tertiary Treated Municipal Sewage For Cooling Tower Application

    Bengaluru, being a water stressed city, was looking at opportunities to reuse and recycle of tertiary treated municipal sewage for cooling tower application in a nearby power plant. Jakkur STP, being a 10 MLD plant based on conventional anaerobic + conventional activated sludge, was identified to supply about 15 MLD of recycled water for the power plant. The entire plant was designed and retrofitted as two process trains of 7.5 MLD. Read the full case study to learn more about why Integrated Fixed Film Activated Sludge technology (IFAS) was determined to be the best suitable upgrade.

  • IFAS System Produces High Quality Effluent In East Central Kansas

    The City of Emporia, in East Central Kansas, recently experienced an increase in population and more stringent effluent permit requirements resulting in a strained wastewater treatment plant. Emporia retained the services of a local engineering firm to evaluate the current and future needs of the system and recommend an economical, sustainable, and effective solution. After evaluating several options, World Water Works’ Integrated Fixed Film Activated Sludge (IFAS) conformed to all the requirements and was selected.

  • Quick Response Restores Critical Water Supply To North Carolina Community During COVID-19 Outbreak

    There is never a good time for a municipality to encounter problems with its water supply. But during the 2020 COVID-19 outbreak – when handwashing and sanitation are essential to maintaining public health – a reduction in water supply to residents quickly becomes critical.

  • FERC Gives Final Federal Nod Of Approval For Gross Reservoir Expansion

    Project to raise dam will improve water reliability for more than 1.5 million people while benefiting the environment.

  • Small Community Leads Central Florida In Potable Water Reuse Implementation

    According to recent studies conducted by the Central Florida Water Initiative, groundwater sources alone will not meet future freshwater demands for area residents. To address this looming issue, Central Florida water utilities will need to begin diversifying their water supplies. There are several options water utilities can consider when expanding their drinking water sources, including surface water, groundwater and desalination. One opportunity that is gaining nationwide popularity is potable water reuse.

  • COVID-19 Heightens Water Problems Around The World

    COVID-19 will unquestionably delay achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the latest global attempt to improve the quality of life of billions of people around the world by 2030. Increasing access to clean water and sanitation are among the 17 SDGs. During normal times, and even more during the present pandemic, access to clean water and proper sanitation is essential.

  • 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.

  • Day Zero — Lessons For New Zealand

    New Zealand is widely regarded as having dealt well with one crisis: COVID-19. But there’s another one they appear to be struggling with.

  • Potable Water Treatment Mini Train System: PWT 125

    For remote sites with peak populations between 500 and 2,000 people, the newterra PWT-125 Mini Train System offers exceptional capacity and flexibility. The base system for up to 500 people consists of two 40' containerized elements – a discrete distribution/disinfection unit and a treatment unit. The Mini Train design allows up to four (4) treatment units to be added to a single distribution unit, providing potable water treatment for 2,000 people. The system is designed to integrate with containerized or free standing tanks for water storage. The treatment system is available for both groundwater and surface water sources.

  • Potable Water Storage Unit: MSU-40

    Minimize potable water hauling costs with modular onsite storage units from newterra – the leader in advanced camp water solutions.

  • Sewage Treatment Mini Train System: WWT-50

    The highly scalable newterra WWT-50 Sewage Treatment Mini Train System is designed for rapid mobilization to serve camps of 200 to 800 people. These efficient plants are configured in trains that allow modular expansion and easy redeployment of assets. Each base configuration consists of two 40' containers that provide 50 m3 (13,200 US gal) of treatment capacity – enough for 200 people. Supplementing the base system with one 40' Adder container doubles capacity to 100 m3 for up to 400 people.

  • Sewage Treatment Large Train System: WWT-125
