  • Improving The Quality Of Secondary Wastewater For Indirect Potable Reuse—From Pilot To Full Scale Plant
    Improving The Quality Of Secondary Wastewater For Indirect Potable Reuse—From Pilot To Full Scale Plant

    In spite of the recent abundance of water, many of California’s aquifers continue to balance on the edge of water scarcity. Decades of overpumping have reduced the amount of ground water available to supplement surface water resources diminished by drought. The Pure Water Monterey Ground Water Replenishment Project (Monterey Pure), addressed the need to replenish a local aquifer, by piloting Advanced Water Treatment (AWT) processes, to determine the best method to convert secondary wastewater into a pure water resource.

    Ignition Increases Flexibility, Lowers Costs For Two Water Utilities

    When Park City Water in Utah needed a new system for supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and human-machine interface (HMI), it picked the same solution chosen by its neighbor, Mountain Regional Water (MRW) District. Both MRW and Park City have seen significant improvements since switching from their previous SCADA systems to Ignition. MRW saves more than $400,000 per year on energy with greater control from Ignition. Park City saves the equivalent of one full-time employee by using Ignition to automate its reports to a state agency.

  • Water And Food: One Man’s Vision
    Water And Food: One Man’s Vision

    Angelo Mazzei has always thought locally and acted globally. Born and raised in California’s San Joaquin Valley — one of the world’s most productive farming regions — Angelo worked for his uncle’s 10,000-acre farming operation after graduating from college. There he saw a pressing need for a system that would allow farmers to safely and efficiently inject fertilizer into their irrigation water — a task made even more challenging with the 1968 introduction of high-pressure water supplies through the California Aqueduct, a 400-mile-long water conveyance system. A new approach was vital.

  • Is Remote Monitoring Right for Me?
    Is Remote Monitoring Right for Me?

    Budgetary constraints and the challenges of maintaining and upgrading aging infrastructure have water utilities looking for ways to operate more efficiently, even as customer service expectations and regulatory demand for more sophisticated reporting and usage information are on the rise. Fortunately, many water treatment plants have found a solution to these seemingly contradictory requirements in remote monitoring systems, which allow utilities to conserve water, operate efficiently, and ensure that the assets within their network are performing well.

  • Orchestrating Corrosion Control With Phosphate Analyzers
    Orchestrating Corrosion Control With Phosphate Analyzers

    As with so many other drinking water treatment processes, corrosion control demands a delicate balance among multiple factors. From the water-purifying chlorine that increases corrosion risk, to alternative strategies that reduce corrosion — using either elevated pH or phosphates — keeping corrosion under control requires sound strategy and reliable execution. Here are several approaches to addressing those conditions, along with options for better, more effective corrosion control.
