Demonstrating the Value of CPVC Piping for Pulp and Paper

 The efficiency of paper production processes cannot be overlooked—paper is one of the most globalized commodities in the world, and as such, it’s in high demand. Pulp and paper mills have traditionally used metallic piping systems, but these present costly installation, repair and maintenan...

Sinkhole Caused by Soil Migration through Separated Pipe Joint Repaired with HydraTite® Trenchless Joint Repair System

The first Cretex Internal Manhole Chimney Seals were installed in sanitary manholes in Milwaukee Wisconsin in February of 1981.  Recent inspections and third party materials testing conducted on some of the oldest seals have concluded that the rubber seal and stainless steel bands that make...

What Makes an Effective Odor Control Cover System Design?

A common side effect of wastewater treatment processes is the unpleasant odor that can linger near the plant. Neighbors, offended by the odors, expect a resolution. This white paper examines potential solutions to the odors produced by wastewater treatment plants and presents specific considerati...

Dealing with the Highs and Lows of Flow

Water is becoming a much more valuable commodity every year, so the measurement of water has also become a big business opportunity.  Where water is not as plentiful as it once was, less will be allotted for irrigation and personal use.  This article outlines what is being used to measu...

Environmental Protection and Flood Prevention with the Modular HOBAS Combined Sewer Overflow Chamber

Rising sea levels, increasingly severe rainstorms, and an ever-growing population density keep influencing the ground water level in urban areas and affecting the urban environment. While it is hardly possible to alter the actuators, we can do something to mitigate the consequences. The HOBAS Pro...

How To Select The Most Effective Blower Technology For Wastewater Applications

Given numerous variables when selecting an aeration blower system for wastewater applications, and equally numerous claims by technology providers, it is not surprising that confusion exists. Worse than confusion is the disappointment that results when a blower technology fails to perform as anti...

Eliminate TKN Digestions and Obtain Better Nutrient Data

Nitrogen and Phosphorus are the principal elements referred to when discussing nutrient pollution. Current, and past, efforts to control these pollutants have been generally inadequate. Efforts to date have been predominantly “regulation at the pipe” and have not addressed the non-point sources t...

Productivity at the Commercial (or pay per test) Laboratory using GCMS

Commercial environmental laboratories analyze large numbers of samples per day using approved methods, and produce data that need to be technically sound and legally defensible. To remain competitive, commercial laboratories need rugged, automated instruments so they can decrease downtime and inc...

Why Smart Water Networks Boost Efficiency

The Smart Water Network (SWAN) is the water utility industry’s equivalent to the energy industry’s Smart Grid. However, water utilities are trying to determine how new SWAN technologies will help maintain or improve service and profitability levels at existing water billing rates. This paper expl...

How the Cloud is Revolutionizing the Future of Water Utility Management: Understanding the Differences Between Managed Cloud-based Software Solutions and Traditional In-house Solutions for Water Meter Data Management

  The emergence of the cloud-based, managed solution approach to advanced metering analytics has been met by a lack of thorough understanding of how this new model compares to the traditional in-house AMI model, and how a utility might rationalize its costs and benefits. This white paper pro...
