SSPC: The Society for Protective Coatings will be featuring its Certification Quality Program (QP-1) at WEFTEC. SSPC QP-1 is a nationally recognized certification program designed to help facility owners, engineers, and specifiers select qualified industrial painting contractors. When utilities specify SSPC QP-1, they will know from the start that the contractors bidding on their work have industry-standard capabilities and a proven commitment to quality.

The WesTech RapiSand™ Ballasted Flocculation System is a high rate clarification process combining rapid mixing and multi-stage flocculation, followed by sedimentation. Sedimentation is extremely fast and can be applied in a wide variety of suspended solids removal applications. Typical advantages of the system include expanding plant capacity, minimizing plant footprint, providing fast startup capabilities, as well as providing improved performance characteristics.
Water quality monitoring
Water utilities can monitor and track the health of their source water before it reaches the treatment plant with YSI's EXO water-quality monitoring sondes and real-time alerts. Users can configure sondes quickly to move between laboratory and field sites, switching sensors as needed for the different parameters of interest at different sites. Sensors have fast response times for profiling and sampling, and a depth rating of 250 meters for long-term continuous monitoring in drinking water reservoirs and near intake structures.

Telog's Environmental Information Management System (EIMS) centralizes data from a number of proprietary data sources, making it accessible on one system. Using EIMS, data can be imported, converted and integrated to create a comprehensive picture of every point in the utility's water management system giving utilities a comprehensive picture of their water system—without having to switch from one system to another to determine what's happening at any given point. EIMS displays each water monitoring site location with its current status on one map. Users see sites in conjunction with pipe locations, interceptors, and other infrastructure to correlate changes in station operations with occurrences of overflows, water quality, and other issues.
