    • After Katrina with ITT Royce Technologies’ Jim Dartez
      A year ago, Jim Dartez, general manager of ITT Sanitaire’s Royce Technologies, hosted a group of journalists at The Plimsoll Club high atop New Orleans’ World Trade Center during WEFTEC.
    • 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.

TODAY'S HEADLINES

Clearing Things Up at Prequannock WTP

In 2010, the city of Newark, N.J., retained Hatch Mott MacDonald to investigate potential solutions to a problem at Pequannock WTP. Decant tanks were providing minimal solids removal as a result of removed tube settlers from deterioration. Inclined plate settlers were identified as a feasible alternative for improving supernatant water quality and were selected for pilot testing.

Be the Change: Embracing New Approaches to Foster Innovation in the Water Industry

The pressure to accommodate change will drive our traditionally risk-averse industry to embrace new and different approaches at an accelerated pace. Further, the demand for a zero-energy footprint will also drive improvements in co-generation efficiencies, energy conservation and recovery methods, and comprehensive resource recovery.

CDC preparing Ebola guidance for wastewater treatment personnel

In a recent conference call with AWWA and other major water organizations, the CDC shared it has prepared and is conducting an expedited internal review of an interim guidance on wastewater worker safety and the inactivation of the Ebola virus by wastewater treatment processes.

New partnership to measure farmers' conservation impacts on U.S. water quality

The U.S. Department of the Interior and U.S. Department of Agriculture have announced a new partnership that will provide a clearer picture of the benefits of farmers' conservation practices on the quality of the nation's waters.
