    • Clean Water Challenges Abound for Industry
      Water Quality Standards (WQS) are the foundation for water quality pollution control under the Clean Water Act.
    • Power Plants, Cooling Towers & Chlorination - Preventing Biofouling
      Cooling water towers, especially during higher temperatures, are susceptible to the growth of algae and slime.
    • Stay Cool: Study Your Chemistry?
      A cooling tower is something most plant personnel take for granted. The tower system produces a steady flow of plant water that’s continuously recycled with a minimum amount of bother and expense.
    • Water Investments: Demand Begins to Outstrip Supply
      Investor interest in the water industry continues to grow by leaps and bounds, but the availability of attractive investment vehicles continue to decline - as more and more of the publicly traded water companies are snapped up by well-heeled and hungry corporate acquirers.
    • Zero-Sludge Treatment of Industrial Wastewater By Ken Norcross
      Industrial wastewater treatment is an unusual engineering challenge. Where else in industry are the designers asked to provide a process that will produce a very high level of efficiency and reliability while being given an unpredictable, inconsistent and highly variable raw material with which to work? This conundrum is further compounded if, as is often the case, the waste is highly concentrated, high in salts or hot.

Online Zeta Potential Measurement Provides Water Treatment Control, Cost Reduction

Online zeta potential measurements can provide real-time water quality monitoring and support effective process control under all circumstances. The value of online measurement is illustrated through the experiences of Aurora Water, which is using zeta potential at one facility as both an offline and online tool for monitoring and controlling water treatment processes.

Pacific Institute issues helpful analysis of CA water bond to better inform Nov voters

Voters on CA's November ballot will be asked whether to approve Proposition 1, the Water Quality, Supply and Infrastructure Improvement Act. As such, the Pacific Institute has released an objective new report that helps voters untangle the complexities of the water bond measure.

Research offers unique insight into monitoring groundwater at Ohio fracking sites

A new research project at the University of Cincinnati is taking a groundbreaking approach to monitoring groundwater resources near fracking sites in the state of Ohio.

EPA announces preliminary determination to regulate strontium in drinking water

EPA has announced that it has officially made a preliminary determination to regulate strontium in U.S. drinking water. Strontium is a naturally occurring element that, at elevated levels, can impact bone strength in individuals who do not consume enough calcium.
